“The Room Next Door” has been out for eleven days, now, and that means it’s been in a few of your hands for nearly that long. This seems like a good time to thank all of you for your support, and also to ask whether you’re enjoying it?
It’s also payday here in the UK, which makes it a great time to promote a book by a newly published author!
If you’re enjoying the book, please tell people about it! Writing a post or a tweet to your friends or followers about how you feel about it, and including a link to it on Amazon or Markosia goes a long way!

If you have a few minutes, writing a one or two paragraph review on Amazon or GoodReads would also be incredible! For a new author, anything that puts the book in front of new people helps loads.

I know I talk a lot – probably too much – about how we should all proactively support the creative endeavours of the people we know, or the lesser-knowns we’ve stumbled across. That’s because I’m admittedly a bit obsessed about the potential social media has for atomising and democratising culture, and the way I think we waste that potential when we recreate fame and elevate the same people who we were already watching on our TVs or knew from the big displays in bookshops.
But it’s ALSO because I’m a guy who makes things, and wants as many people as possible to see them! The love and support of friends and family is incredible and invaluable. But the adrenaline REALLY starts pumping when people you’ve never met start telling you they hated your book!
