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. Although he still self-publishes some work, most of his books are published by Crooked Cat. They put out all the Sanford 3rd Age Club Mysteries, and other, darker, edgier titles such as The Handshaker and Voices, works which are aimed exclusively at an adult audience.

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. Four Flatcap volumes are currently available for download and a fifth may be on the horizon

As at April 2015, he is working on the 15th STAC Mystery, working title, STAC 15, and the of a new set of noir titles.

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.
