Archive for June, 2009 – 1 Year Anniversary

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Well it’s hard to believe it but this website and blog went live one year ago this week. It’s been an interesting 12 months to say the least.

Marketing and selling Lord of the Rams has proven to be a tougher job than I imagined when I launched the site, but the past year has served as an invaluable learning experience, which will no doubt stand to me in the future.

Whilst reviews of Lord of the Rams have been largely favourable, ultimately it’s the opinion of the readers—the people who spend their hard-earned money on the book—that count.

Today, I’m going to share some of the comments I’ve received from readers over the past year. It’s always nice to receive positive feedback and, whilst I have no doubt that there are those who didn’t like the book, such individuals have thus far chosen to be silent for the most part.

Some Feedback from Readers of Lord of the Rams:

“I am getting strange looks on the Tube as I’m pissing myself laughing.”

“This is the first book I have read from front cover to back, I think it should be part of the leaving cert novels. Well done, very good and enjoyable to read.”

“I loved your book. Very funny.”

“My mate from Cavan read your book – he said it was very clever and that you might be a bit mad!”

“You have a storytelling talent.”

“Had to actually pretend to have a coughing fit on the Dart to hide my laughing at your book.”

“It’s really good, very funny and very enjoyable … kinda similar to some of Roddy Doyle’s stuff … It’s well written, very easy to visualise and very entertaining.”

Keep the comments coming – good or bad!

By the way, Lord of the Rams will be on sale at two large outdoor events in Meath and Cavan  later in the Summer – more info to follow in a future blog!

Lord of the Rams can be purchased via Amazon, Play and most online book retailers.
