On Gibraltar Bookshelves... The Evolution Trilogy by Vanessa Wester

I am thrilled to let you all know that my books are now on sale via Bookshops in Gibraltar... I know, very exciting!

I hope readers enjoy the books, since I have never done a lot to sell paperbacks before. I mainly sold eBooks since I don't keep much stock of my books. This is the beauty is Createspace... You order the amount you want. I think it saves a tree in the process too :)

However, after the official book launch of The Evolution Trilogy in Gibraltar, I was lucky enough to find booksellers willing to stock my books. I was featured in the local press, via The Gibraltar Chronicle,  Panorama, and interviewed on GBC and the local radio. 

I have not had so much fun in years... 

I gave a talk for nearly an hour at the Garrison Library in Gibraltar and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I talked about why I started writing, how I published my books and mainly discussed what inspires me. I also mentioned my Charity anthologies, as well as my disillusionment with traditional establishments who insist on thrusting unsuitable (but profitable) books in our faces...

It's no surprise I was exhausted in the end!

Luckily, Christmas came along and I have had a fantastic rest (eaten a LOT) and now have time to write about it...

So, please enjoy these pictures... This is as good as it gets! Thank you to all my readers and for the support I have received (and still receive) - Happy New Year to all! :)

All the best,
Vanessa Wester :)
On bookshelves... so cool!
And here I am next to "Walk to Freedom".
I seriously do not feel worthy enough to be 
placed next to such an amazing book.

HYBRID is now FREE...

I did not intend to make HYBRID FREE. I ran a promotion where I gave out a coupon code for smashwords (as you might have seen in previous posts) and then ran a timed FREE promotion on KOBO for 2 weeks.

Now bear in mind that I have had my short story, FIRST DATE, free for months on smashwords & Kobo in the hope it would be price matched on Amazon, but it has never happened.

HYBRID was free on Kobo for less than a week and it was price matched.

So, I took the decision to let it happen.

I have blogged about how uneasy I am about this, but overall I have to be brave. If I want people to read my work it has to be downloaded. And at least, by being FREE this will happen... And I admit, it's so nice to be in the charts (even if it is the free ones).

So, a New Years present for you all...

ENJOY and spread the word...

If you enjoy, fantastic - please leave a review. If you don't like it, please be kind. If someone gives you something for free and it's not too your taste just smile and walk away (unfortunately you can't sell it on eBay later, but hey... be nice - thank you)

All the best,

HYBRID is FREE on Amazon (click on the link below), SMASHWORDS, KOBO, BARNES & NOBLE, edIESEL, SONY
