Welcome to my Author page! WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME! MY WAY! FIVE WEEKS!

Wrong Place Wrong Time is my first book and was encouraged by my family and friend/editor to put pen to paper/fingers to laptop and write.

It is based on events that happened in the early 90’s when I visited Marbella, Spain where my dream holiday turned into the biggest nightmare of my life.

I am delighted to share that the book had become a #1 Best Seller in TRUE CRIME on Amazon in US, along with #2 in True Accounts in Japan and Australia, #1 in Factual in Spain and top #10 in UK. I am also amazed at the number of reviews, over 400 with over 276 x 5* so far! Thank you readers.

My second book is called MY WAY, its about how I have marketed Wrong Place Wrong Time, firstly because I was told I should and secondly to give new authors, like myself some tips.

My Way has received over 80 x 4/5* reviews from self-publishing authors from around the world.

My third book is called FIVE WEEKS, about one man’s disturbing trip to America, where he was nearly left for dead in a remote Pennsylvania forest.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Author Book

Aptly named "My Way", this book will take you simply and easily through each step that I took in order to get my book "Wrong Place Wrong Time" to the #1 spot in True Crime on Amazon's USA chart.

If you're a newbie, or if what you've been doing just isn't working, I'm hoping this book will help you to get the recognition you deserve.

It's written in a very easy to read style with no technical words, no assumptions and no need to research anything I discuss in order to understand it. Everything is explained fully, and written in its most basic form. I don't tell you what to do, I show you how I did it. I also provide examples of what I continue to do, as well as links to wonderful people who will help you in your journey.

If you're not a social media guru...if you're someone who perhaps knows that you should be using Twitter and Facebook and other social media platforms, but aren't entirely sure how you should be using them or what you should be saying, then this book is for you. However, if you already know what you're doing and are just looking for the 'secret' to having a bestselling book, you'll be disappointed. There is no secret.

'My Way' is quite simply a story. It's the journey I took from the unknown

BOOK REVIEWS

Geoffrey West

This was an extremely useful, fact-packed book, and it helped me a great deal. The good thing about it is it's very concise, clear and straightforward, gathering a great deal of excellent practical advice together. I already knew some of it, but certainly not all. Think of it as a distillation of all the information you're ever likely to find on thousands of blog posts and suggestion sites, with the best ideas left in and the hype and excitable nonsense taken out. David doesn't tell you everything's going to be easy or that following his advice is going to deliver undreamed of results. He just patiently takes you through his own experiences and conclusions, so that you get all the information in one place and you can make the very best of your work, without falling into any traps, any one of which can affect your sales. What I like was that there were no silly false promises, no shouting and declaiming how his book can make you sell millions of copies of your own book, or that he can transform your fortunes overnight. Instead, reading this book is rather like a friendly new acquaintance taking you into a cafe or pub, having a long long chat with you, and sharing every ounce of his hard-won successes and failures, so he can help you. Giving you shedloads of practical suggestions that worked for him and suggesting how it can work for you. After reading it I tried a free book promotion, something I tried with my previous book, but did not make the most of the first time. I believe it was thanks to David's advice that I got almost 2000 free downloads and, since then, almost 100 sales in the days following - something I never imagined might happen, especially in these days of recession. His advice worked for me. 'My Way' is like a handful of jewels, scattered out in front of you. Any one of these nuggets of information can be the key to telling you what you're doing wrong and how you can put it right, or what you can do that you never even thought of doing. Thanks, David, for giving us the benefit of your own experiences. It's early days for me, but if my second book's steady trickle of sales goes on building, he might have helped me to actually 'kickstart' my sales. Unless you're an expert marketer already there's bound to be something in this book that'll work to your advantage. If you buy it, you certainly won't regret it.

As many self-published authors will tell you, writing your book is the easy part! Now comes the time when you have to find answers to the awkward question: "How will I get people to buy, read and review my work?" Well. David P. Perlmutter found out the hard way. He needed to publicise his book `Wrong Place, Wrong Time', and of course, like many independent authors, he made mistakes and went down blind alleys; but he kept plugging away, and eventually made his book highly successful. So how did he do it? Well, the great news is that he wrote it all down and has made it available to every aspiring indie author. I read David's book `My Way' several months ago in preparation for launching my second novel `Retribution'. I have delayed my review until now, because I wanted to see how well I could do by applying David's wisdom to my own marketing efforts. Results: Twitter following increased by 75%; Facebook presence established; free book promotion greatly exceeded my expectations. So, five stars for `My Way' - it really works!! Of course, I realise there is no `magic bullet', that there is still a lot to do, and that I shall have to continue working hard to promote my books. But what `My Way' has shown me is how to make all that hard work effective. Thank you David!
