Where now?

16 Jan

The spy thriller novel, Troubled Waters by Jon Wakeham is currently the number one download on the UK Amazon Kindle site in its genre. It was until two days ago the number four download in this genre in the US. If you are an agent or publisher, what is being offered is a successful product, the first of a series of novels concerning the same core characters, and leading from 1909 until the outbreak of WWI.

There is now an established market for this series, and what I want to achieve is a successful print run of the book, with the necessary publicity and cover art, in order to gain greater recognition and sales.

The second in the series is due in June this year. The aim is to produce literate novels, not literary work. The research is of good quality, and there should be a high recognition factor of the real life characters who appear in the story.

One reviewer has described the leading character as ‘James Bond’s father,’ and has highlighted the main plot line running throughout the series, which is the development of the intelligence agencies which became MI6 and MI5.
