About David W Robinson

David Robinson is a Yorkshireman living on the outskirts of Manchester, northwest England, with his wife and a crazy Jack Russell Terrier named Joe (because he looks like a Joe).

David writes in several genres under different pseudonyms, but his mainstay is crime and mystery. In January 2012 Crooked Cat Publishing picked up the first of his popular Sanford 3rd Age Club Mysteries, The Filey Connection. Since then a further ten STAC Mysteries have been published by Crooked Cat (and the 12th is due soon) and more titles are planned for 2014 and 2015.

He also produces darker, edgier thrillers, such as The Handshaker, The Deep Secret and Voices; titles which are aimed exclusively at an adult audience and which question our perceptions of reality.

In a more light-hearted mood again, he uses the sledgehammer humour of his alter-ego Flatcap, to reflect on the absurdities of the world at large. Three Flatcap volumes are currently available for download.

As at June 2014, he is working on the 12th STAC Mystery, entitled, A Killing in the Family.

The Haunting of Melmerby Manor, has just been released. The first of a new series, The Spookies Mysteries, Melmerby Manor combines ghost-hunting with a whodunit. While not particularly frightening, there are scenes which may set the reader's hair on end.

Review by: Paul Reynolds on Jan. 21, 2012 :
Set out in 14 sections, this book is a very handy reference to keep by your computer, particularly so if you are a newcomer to electronic publishing.

The hints and tips David provides will certainly make your job so much easier.

Review by: Nick Daws on Sep. 29, 2011 :
E-Book Formatting and Publishing on Smashwords is a beautifully written and illustrated guide to this subject, from someone who has successfully published a string of titles on the Smashwords platform.

As anyone who has tried will tell you, publishing your work on Smashwords can be quite tricky (more so, actually, than publishing to the Kindle), and there are plenty of pitfalls for the unwary. David Robinson's guide will help you avoid all the obvious mistakes, and with just a little luck get your e-book accepted on Smashwords the first time around.
