Off out into the world

Today is the official publication date for The White Gallows. It would have passed me by except for two reviews appearing this morning. So far I've discovered four reviews, which can be found at:

Reactions to Reading
Kittling Books
International Noir
Mack Captures Crime

Thankfully, they all say positive things, which is a relief!

There is a YouTube video/promo thingy, which can be found here.

The back cover blurb is:
In post-Celtic Tiger Ireland the murder rate is soaring and the gardai are struggling to cope with gangland wars, domestic disputes, and drunken brawls that spiral into fatal violence. To add to Detective Superintendent Colm McEvoy’s workload are the deaths of two immigrants – an anonymous Lithuanian youth and an elderly German billionaire. While one remains an enigma, the murky history of the other is slowly revealed. But where there is money there is power and, as McEvoy soon learns, if you swim amongst sharks, you’d better act like a shark.

I doubt the book can be found in many bookshops given the limited marketing resources of the press and their emphasis on online sales through Amazon, Book Depository and others. Bookshops can order it through the book distributors - Gardners (UK/Ireland) and Argosy (Ireland). For those outside of UK/Ireland, then Book Depository (UK or US) do free shipping to anywhere in the world. Publication details: published by Indepenpress. ISBN 978-1-907499-37-1 £8.99, €10.99

Anyway, the book is now officially published, and hopefully anyone interested can get hold of a copy either online or through their local bookshop. Thanks to all the support I've received through the blog as The White Gallows has meandered its way into the world. It has been very much appreciated.

I enjoyed seeing the review of your book in our FriendFeed room today!

It is also near the top of my TBR, but I have vowed not to pick it up until my exams are over - because I want to enjoy it at leasure!
