Finally – finally – it’s time to launch The Flesh Market. I feel like I’ve crossed the line on my hands and knees this time round, but as with any marathon journey it’s crossing the line at all that counts. In my head there are bands playing, and children cheering, and everything.
You can buy the book for the kindle or in paperback (that link should take you to your local Amazon, where both editions are linked on the same page). Set between the slums of 19th century Edinburgh and the ivory towers of its academia, The Flesh Market is an almost true story of murder, mad science, obsession, and the restless dead.
I thought long and hard about how I might encourage people to help out today. After referring to several weighty tomes by Paul McKenna and Derren Brown, it occurred to me that I should probably just ask. It’s so much simpler. So, please help me launch this book.
There are three ways you can do that They can be done in a few seconds.
The second is important. The biggest problem a newborn book has to deal with is obscurity. If nobody knows about it, nobody can buy it. I don’t want to use Facebook to hard sell the thing to anybody – I don’t really think sales work like that. People like what they like. This is about making sure the people who might like The Flesh Market actually know that it’s there. If a bunch of people put it on Facebook, a bunch more people will see it. Some of them will think it looks awesome, and give it a try. Others will ignore it and no harm done. Some will forget about it until next time they see the book somewhere, and remember that they meant to look at it last time.
Point is, people will at least know that it exists. After that, it’s up to the book to be worth people’s time. If you show it to the people you know, you’re helping me out enormously. Thank you!

If I stay online, I’m going to spend the next forty-eight hours stalking my own book. I’ll
