there it is folks, my baby - complete with a role for 'Essex Adam' among others. I would really appreciate any feedback you guys might have regarding the cover and the description, because these can constantly be changed and improved!

Here is a bigger image of the cover which Nicky wants some feedback on plus the description below and links to both Amazon stores here and across the water :-)

Jack and the Lad on Amazon UK

Jack and the Lad on Amazon US



Jack and Minty are just like any other cute East London couple; the only drawback is, she’s a bawdy urban myth who’s been doing the rounds for four hundred years and he’s an aspiring LSE graduate who doesn’t believe in ghosts anyway, desperate to move on from the Barking market and make himself into the modern, metrosexual man he knows his mum would be so proud of. Jack’s the pole star around which his family revolves; his success is their staple, his conquests their currency.

In fact, Jack Woodfield has it sorted; he’s got brains, brawn, and sightly bulges. Sat at his desk at a psyche-profiling firm on Cannon Street, he’s a modern man with a lad’s legacy that he’d rather leave behind, along with his fellow carouser, hell raising cousin Hayden. But over Jack’s shoulder lurks Minty Hardcore, the frisky phantom whose preternatural predilection for burly ex-barrow boys might well screw up his prospects for promotion and a cosmopolitan, carefree existence rather royally...

Can Jack’s sparkling City career be saved, or is he doomed to spend the rest of his days bogged down in cheap bling and flexing his biceps, enslaved to that saucy spook, Minty Hardcore?!

And what is the sordid secret of that sexually insatiable spectre?!?

I like the image, for some reason the font and color used in your name, reminds me of the old batman tv series.

As for the intro text.. I already tried reading it yesterday but I struggled. The sentences are long and I had to check few words. But I am a Finn so that prolly means very little. I will certainly read the chapter tonight.. I wonder if you can buy it even if you haven't got a Kindle. I will try!

thanks Anne. Feedback like the bit about the text is just what I'm looking for, and I'm going to adjust it accordingly.

You can definitely buy it if you don't have a Kindle. Kindle is also available as an app - I have it on my laptop, and it's free to download;

Kindle app for PC:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000423913


Kindle app for iPhone/iPad:

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/kindle/id302584613?mt=8

As there is no Amazon in Finland - I think! - you would be able to purchase it from Amazon UK

it's expensive to produce hard copies. On Amazon.com you'll pay $2.50 or something but a hard copy would cost you $10 or maybe a bit more; I can't afford to command those sort of prices at this stage in my career

I'll look at the blurb Rodney, thanks; what does 'kill your darlings' mean, though?

you don't need to print it out! and you should buy it to support me, $2.50 isn't much! you're tighter than Carlotta!!

you are right, I will buy it in a couple of weeks when I catch up on bills, yesterday was the first time in a week I worked, and my huband's next two paychecks will be paying for his car repairs.

I will buy it at the end of the month. How many have you sold?

not sure how many I've sold so far, around fifty copies I think; not sure if that's wonderful or woeful, but given I'm doing it all off my own back with no budget, no media campaign...

a writer like you should be familiar with that term!
Kill off(edit) some those wonderful sentences you came up with. In order to make the blurb more succinct:P
