Big milestone for me this month. I officially retire from the ‘day job’ as a freelance copywriter on 27th July, 2014. Can’t remotely afford to retire, but then again, national insurance contributions are so high in France, I can’t remotely afford not to.
Because I’ve worked in both the UK and France, it involves a bit of a nightmare (understatement) to get my hands on my various pension entitlements, not to mention a small rain forest of paperwork in both countries. Helpful friends who have already been through it warn that it could take up to a year for me to see any pension money from either country <gulp>
So for the time being, apart from my wits, such as they are, I am mostly going to be living on royalties from the sale of the 3 books in the Sell the Pig series. And unless an author is in the league of Dan Brown, that doesn’t amount to very much.
All 3 Sell the Pig books are doing quite well, constantly vying one another for the top 3 places in the best-seller list of their categories on Amazon. Pig senior was in the lead today but now cheeky Book 3 has stormed ahead once more.
So I’m hoping I can count on your help for a bit of a boost in book sales. If you’ve not yet read all 3 Sell the Pig books, do please consider getting the outstanding ones. The Kindle versions are competitively priced. If you would like a signed paperback, you can buy them from me direct and that way I get a better royalty rate.
If you’ve read and enjoyed them, you could help enormously by telling your friends and perhaps sharing this post. If you haven’t already left a review on Amazon, that would help too. If you’re not sure how to do it, I’d be pleased to talk you through it.
My lifestyle is not extravagant, I don’t need much, just enough to feed me, my two cats and my two monster dogs. So if you could help to spread the word, that would be fabulous, thanks so much.
