First things first - why are all of my stories free to download as eBooks?

I've thought long and hard about this... and the conclusion I've come to is that it's all about presence.

Despite some years of success in competition and with magazines and online publishers, I've still got a pile of rejections from the mainstream industry. My stories and books have good reviews and have received positive editorial for years now, all of which leads me to think that our industry is a little skewed at the moment.

So, rather than flog a dead horse I've decided to go online, to resurrect good old Dickensian serialization, and to make my stories absolutely free across as many platforms and sites as I can. By concentrating on creating presence and by building a download audience, I'll find a way to make a living out of all this imagination and graft.

You can, of course, still buy print versions of my books... just check out the links on the relevant book pages (http://www.cpibookdelivery.com).

As for me... I've been writing since age 11 and had various shorts and pieces of poetry published over the years. I started writing longer fiction a few years ago and have even set up my own small publishing company in collaboration with other writers at The Write Factor in the hope of encouraging others to be confident about self-publishing and all of the "stuff" that goes with that route to getting your work out there.

I have some experience in the industry generally, having worked as a journalist and contributor to various magazines and newspapers, although I'm concentrating on fiction right now.

I'm looking forward to getting new work up for you all in the coming months and hopefully we'll get chance to share work, comments, feedback and all that good stuff...

Cheers for now,

Clive
