Rory is #1 Hot New Release

More incredibubbility. For two days now, Rory has been the  #1 Hot New Release in Children's Medieval Fiction. And she reached #4 in the UK bestseller chart in the same category. Way to go, sweetheart, I knew you could do it.  ♥♥♥
So that's all four of the Hengist books in bestsellers lists. Pretty good going. Now it's eye's down and fine-toothed-comb out for Reagan before he get's his swanky new cover. I've had a peek and it's gonna be awesome.

Re-release of Rory rocks in early

Rory is only 99cents/99p for a fortnight.

So, you're supposed to learn by your mistakes, right?
How many times have I been tussling with the vagaries (and gremlins) of the various tools and platforms required to bring a book from my computer into the great, wide reading world?
Each release, I learn a little more and put strategies into place to make sure I've thought of everything. Then I go and mess it all up with daft things like not letting my awesome cover designer Rebecca Sterling know the date of the release.
But like a trooper, she pulled it out of the bag (how cool is this cover?). So the new, improved Rory (with a couple of sassy new female characters who steal a scene) kinda broke all the records and made it out a day early.
Just gotta let people know, now.
Hmmm! How to to this? Oh yes, my brand new shiny Twitter account - that's taken over the teasers, but just in case you don't have twitter or face book, here's a little montage to give you the flavour:

Presenting Hannah Sullivan - World Wise Writer

How remiss of me. Having spent over a year in the company of these lovely ladies, it never occurred to me to interview them on my blog. Because we all know them so well. At least I do, having swapped many thousands of emails with them - no that's not per week, although it sometimes feels like it. We really can talk when we get together.

For those of you who have never met my super-dooper-awesome-sauce-tastic ladies, you are in for a rare treat as I now put them in the chair.
First up is Hannah-banana (aka Swifty) - she is the Heart of us.
Read more here.

And if you fancy the sound of her awesome book, she has a sale on for the next 2 days, (from 7th July) FREE to download in  the US and UK.

Seriously? Jacky Gray on Twitter?

I know, right? Doesn't seem possible that an old Luddite like me could actually hang with the popular kids on twitter of all places. Never mind the years spent swearing I'd never do it, really didn't take much of an arm-twist to persuade that the dratted blue bird is in my best interests.
Now just a small matter of gaining a following. Hmmmm, no big ask then.
If you did want to follow me, it's https://twitter.com/jacky_gray/
If you follow me, I'll follow you right back. Hang on, sounds like a Genesis song ...

Oh, and it's gonna take me many moons to get the twitter thing right, so feel free to leave your helpful comments on how to do this thing below. Ta muchly Xxx
