I'm an author. I've written FOUR true stories, one, #WrongPlaceWrongTime is becoming a movie.
I've also written ONE children's book, TWO crime fiction books #WriteToKill and #WriteToSurvive, and EIGHT book marketing books.
I've featured hundreds of books by authors. You will also find articles of interest about certain actors, actresses and musicians who I've stumbled across on social media.
I hope that within the contents of this blog, something will catch your eye.
Its been two weeks since my book was published and I thought I would share some of the reviews and ratings I have had so far with you, so here goes!
GOODREADS:5 star Rating: From Karen Cole.
5 STAR Review: ZERO TO HERO!
Firstly the cover caught my attention, then the title and the
statement, True Story. Having read the first 3 chapters the story became
a fast paced tale and kept me gripped until the end. The guy who's
story it is about did act stupidly initially but then you warm to him,
especially when he risked his own life, saving others. I will not give
too much away but this book may not be for everyone but I enjoyed it
1) A 3 STAR Review: GRIPPING!
I read this book in an hour and a half. It was gripping and well paced.
My one reservation is with the title. David was never in the wrong place
at the wrong time, he made some unfortunate choices.
2) 5 STAR Review: GRIPPING, SCARY AND A GOOD READ!
I bought this book a few days ago and later that night (about 11pm) went
up to bed to have a read - I ended up staying awake until 2.30am to
finish it! I am just a bit older than the Author was when the
events took place and I can relate to a lot of what writes about, being a
bit naive and carefree when young. Fortunately for me (unfortunately
for David) the few scrapes I had in my early 20s with the police were
here in the UK not Spain!!! Anyone who enjoys reading books
involving True Crime,the Police, Spain, Being young and a bit adventurous
should definitely give this a read.
5/5 from me and hopefully David Perlmutter decides to write further books.
3) 5 STAR Review: FANTASTIC!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It's paced brilliantly - I
started off lounging in the armchair and ended up on the edge of my
seat! The last few chapters are especially gripping and if you're
anything like me, you'll be rooting for David right till the end.
Although this is a true story, it reads like fiction (with great
dialogue and characters). It's a brilliant read and one I'll definitely
be reccommending to my friends.
4) Bought the eBook from Amazon and thought it was a great story - thanks for sharing it with us!
This book sounds like one I'd love! Too bad I'm so far behind in my
reading (now getting emails from authors, asking when I'm going to read
the books they gifted). Ugh! Well, I have it written down & won't
forget about it, Dave.
Hi Dave, I have just started reading your book and already I can't put
it down. Great writing, honest and well written! It's been a long time
since I have read such a good book!
Okay I won't bore you anymore, if you wish to buy or review the book, just click on any of the link's to your right from Lulu and Amazon.
Just been to watch Ireland in my local bar in Madeira, sadly they lost,
I'm not Irish but I have always loved their passion, but hey only one
game and two to go, England tomorrow, come on boys! But to serious
matters, my book, to me anyway. It has been live for 5 days and still to
my amazement people are buying it daily! My book, they are buying,
thank you to those people, what remarkable taste you have, I would say
It is a true story, (by the way, Sex and the City is on the box as
I write this) and say that my story differs from what is on TV is an
understatement, my story is fun and adventure like the film glaring at
me, but it turns for the worse with a hotel fire, saving life’s, an
arrest, prison and then.....well I don't want to give it away! It’s on
Amazon if you want to check it out, like the first 2 chapters and if you
want to buy it, thank you and leave a review.
Okay that’s it really, apart from to tell you about my super reviews on Amazon, click the "buy my book" link to see them plus tonight I have received a another 5* review of my book from Goodreads, yes Goodreads, from Karen Cole, how chuffed am I?, VERY.....take a look, http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15505212-wrong-place-wrong-time
Thats it, enough of me, so goodnight and sweetdreams....
As the sun
peeped through the gap in the curtains this morning, the rays made me stir as
my eyelids blinked and slowly opened. Getting up and checking my Amazon report,
I was pleased to see that I have sold more copies of my new book, Wrong Place
Wrong Time, but also to read that two readers have spent their valuable time
leaving superb reviews. So as you can appreciate I am very happy and jumping
for joy on this very sunny Saturday morning in Madeira.
To read the
reviews and hey, why not buy a copy yourself by clicking the "buy the
book" link to the right or just simply click the link below and then your
there, on Amazon, where your see the book, the amazing cover and the reviews!
been 24 hours since I clicked the magic key on my laptop to publish my first
eBook and to my complete and utter surprise, not only is it already on Page One
of Google, but I have sold a nice amount of copies.
So I sit
here wondering, who am I?, no one famous, never have I ever written before, but
I guess that as the story is true and may I say a rather gripping one at that
as the heading of this blog suggests, I assume readers like to read about non-fiction
as much as fiction. Just my personal opinion!
this post I would like to say thank you to the first selection of buyers and
hope that the story lives up to its expectations, which I'm sure it will as I
was there, I went through it, every step of the way and it STILL haunts me to this day, believe
over two years and approximately 60,000 words my first eBook, based on TRUE
EVENTS is now for sale on Amazon around the world. The hard work of staying up
through the night tapping away on my laptop, editing, re-writing, further
editing, further re-writing, then formatting, arranging the cover design and
now here it is, my very first book!
feeling I had last night when my editor and I clicked the button for the book to
be published was a monumental moment, it really was and for the first time in
years, I was speechless and that's a tough feat.
So now the
hard work begins, the marketing and that is what I love, not just writing but
the process of informing the world that I have a book for sale....
STORY.....WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME!
