I've already posted on this forum to promote my first novel, Double Jeopardy, but have now decided that I'd like to go a step further and 'join the community.'
Talisman Publishing is a new small publishers made up of three writers, Michael Morris, Rachel Fletcher and myself, Richard Egan. I use the POD (Print On Demand) service from Lulu.com to print the books, though I publish under my own name. So far we have published one full book, Michael's Double Jeopardy, and a free ebook preview of Double Jeopardy. I have just finished my own first book, a children's science-fiction entitled Hermione Applegate and the Secret Under the House and am currently reviewing the proof copy. Rachel is working on her own first novel, a crime drama with the working title of Danielle Dove. Michael has already started on his second book, a futuristic version of the classic Les Miserables, and I am working on a new series called Dark Master, based on the Master character from Doctor Who.
As you can see we are already quite busy, but Talisman Publishing is not not my primary occupation. I have just completed an NVQ 2 in Playwork, and up until the end of July I was working at an After School and Holiday Club looking after children between the ages of 4 and 14. Unfortunately the club closed at the end of last month, and I am now working at a Holiday Club closer to home.
That's all about me. I'll get the other two, Michael and Rachel, to post something about themselves too.
