It’s snowing! Finally! Yes, it’s just turned midnight and I wanted to write this post about The Starlighter, but just thought I’d take a look outside to see if the promised snow has arrived. And yes! It has! It’s thick and wet, the absolute worst kind of snow, but I’ll take it! Because, you know, snow and Christmas and all that! 🙂
But what about The Starlighter?
Aha, well, it’s enrolled in a Kindle Countdown Deal right now in the US and the UK, starting at 0.99 and going up the ways. So, it pays to be quick if you’re curious about reading my “other kind of book”.
The Starlighter has had a checkered life. It got stalled by me using different pen names, and then Amazon’s algorithms pushing it to crime readers when I settled on my crime pen name – yeah, should have seen that coming. Then two years in obscurity as editors at big publishers read it during corona, and finally, me pulling it back to publish it myself.
But forget all that.
If you want a fun read aimed at a younger audience that is guaranteed (almost) to make you cry (but in a good way), then The Starlighter is for you.
It’s one of my favourite books, just because it is so damned different to what I normally write, and because of the plucky, determined heroes trying to save the earth from extinction at Christmas!
I could go on.
But if you’re curious, you can find it on Amazon here.
Right, back to the snow…

It sounds really interesting, the story. Are you planning a #2 or it’s a just one Christmas story without any other tides?

Hi Ana Catarina. There’s always a book 2. 🙂 Well, that’s not always the case, but I’d like to keep working with the characters from The Starlighter.
