June Update

Hi guys, It’s been a while since we’ve had a chat and I thought I’d let you know what’s been happening here at chez Donovan. My darling wife recently had a significant birthday and we’re in the middle of preparing to host a family gathering here in August. Fingers crossed for the weather. We’ve recently returned from a fortnight in the UK, visiting our family—two weeks that flew by. I always return exhausted from those trips, but happy to have seen our three children and three (soon to be four) grandchildren. That's the domestic news, now for the authorial front [...]

Catch A Live Online Interview with Kerry J Donovan on ‘Changes’ with Sally Ember

Release Day! The DCI Jones Casebook: Sean Freeman

Whoopee! Published today (9th May 2015), The DCI Jones Casebook: Sean Freeman. Hi guys, First, I’d like to thank everyone who pre-ordered a copy of the latest adventure starring the veteran detective, David Jones. Thanks millions. Happy, happy face. When I sent my latest baby into the world with a packed lunch, a bottle of water, and instructions to fend for itself, I was truly terrified. However, watching the pre-order numbers climb over the past week or so has given me confidence that my precious infant will find many new homes and have a happy and full life. I now [...]

The Transition of Johnny Swift – Available now!

The Transition of Johnny Swift - Available now! Hi there, After months and months of writing, editing, re-editing, pulling out hair, planning, and editing some more, the day has finally arrived. My latest book, THE TRANSITION OF JOHNNY SWIFT, has hit the bookshelves. Whoop, whoop. Sooooo excited. One of the most difficult aspects of publishing this particular book has been to decide into which genre it falls. The book isn’t easy to describe in a so-called elevator pitch (a fabled fifteen-second précis to a potential publisher). Normally things are easy for me on the genre front. A simple, couplet will [...]

Navigating the Writing Path

Navigating the Writing Path from Start to Finish – I C Publishing Summer Blog Tour I’m going to start by thanking Danielle and Clifford Rush for inviting me to join the tour. Check out No Eye Has Seen– superb stuff. Thanks also go to the sponsor I C Publishing  Twitter hashtag for the tour: #ICBlogTour. 1. Share how you start your writing project(s). For example, where do you find inspiration? Do you outline? Do you jump right into the writing? Do you do all of your research first? I have absolutely no idea where my ideas come from. Inspiration differs from book to book. [...]
