This blog is created for the
followers of Brian John's Angel Mountain Saga of eight novels,
dealing with the life and times
of a very imperfect heroine,
Mistress Martha Morgan of Plas Ingli. She lived at about the same time as Jane Austen but struggled to survive in a very different world.
Total paperback sales for the series are now over 85,000 copies, with 100,000 sold in all media.

Ghostly Tales spread far and wide
Well, that's got my first few sessions of signing and distributing out of the way. Been out on the road a fair bit recently, and the shops now have their first batches of the Ghostly Tales book in stock. And the good news is that only a week after publication, sales income has already exceeded the size of the printing bill. To achieve that, I needed to sell just over 200 copies. So far, about 300 are in the shops, with a further 400 copies taken by my main distributor, the Welsh Books Council. (That's a nice sign of confidence -- they know that there will be a good demand for the books.......) My initial print run was 1,000 -- so I have about 300 copies still in stock. Enough to see us through to Christmas? Hmmm -- not sure...
Now I can sit back a bit -- or get on with things in the garden -- and wait for requests for top-up supplies from the book trade.
