Thinking of Self-Publishing...

These days writers have the option to self-publish rather than hoping that a traditional publishing house will offer them a contract. Amazon, Smashwords, and a host of other companies offer writers the opportunity to see their book in print, but not everyone has the skill to prepare their manuscript.  That's where L. Cooper Press can help.

For one fee, L. Cooper Press provides:

  • In-house line editing or if preferred, a list of approved editors 
  • Service provider details for cover design and formatting
  • Assistance  in creating an Amazon/Kindle/Createspace account if you do not have one
  • Will assign an ISBN for your print book
  • Guide you through the process for your printed book.

Advantages of self-publishing with L.Cooper Press:

  • There are no contracts to sign
  • You retain the copyright
  • You set the price of your book and keep 100% of the royalties
  • You will receive a professional and personal service from editors, designers and formatters to help you make informed choices for your manuscript.
  • Your book will be available in print and ebook formats within weeks.
  • A Publisher's imprint enters your book into Books in Print, which is where bookstores and libraries find books they want to order.
  • Your book will NOT be perceived as self-published.

The Romance Reviews Fall into Love Party

I'm pleased to say I am taking part in the  Fall into Love Party hosted by

There are over one hundred participating authors, so there are plenty of prizes to be won, including the chance to download a copy of the audio book version of my novel Ring of Lies from

Daniel Elliott dies in a single-car accident one rainy English night. His wife, Grace, is grief stricken. Although their marriage was imperfect, sheltered Grace doesn’t relish the future alone.

She soon learns how little she knew about Daniel. There are secrets: an alias, a strange list of numbers, a house in Florida – and a mistress who’s a dead ringer for Grace.

Terrified but determined, she flies to Florida. Underworld figures stalk her…and so does the other woman. To her surprise, handsome FBI man Jack West takes the case. Grace has a past with the troubled agent. Despite her efforts, she finds herself falling for him all over again.

With danger around every curve, Grace and Jack navigate the criminal world of south Florida to find the truth behind the Ring of Lies.

So come along and join in the fun on the 1st September.
