Pentecost Mini Relaunch For Pentecost Sunday Including Giveaway

It’s Pentecost this coming weekend (Sun 12 June) so I am doing a mini relaunch to celebrate including giveaways!  Pentecost is a Christian festival celebrating the descent of the Holy Spirit onto the Disciples after the Resurrection, and this event sparks the whole story of the novel.

Celebration is also critical to mental health, especially for authors, as it is way too easy to spend time reflecting on lack of time spent writing, how well other people are doing and why we aren’t as rich as Rowling yet!

I intended to record a special podcast with me reading chapters from the book and do videos and everything, but my life is still in flux. I’m living in temporary accommodation and move into a flat at the end of June, so I’m finding it hard to get my usual multi-media routine going. Don’t worry – I’ll be back!

Excitingly, Pentecost has remained in the Amazon bestseller lists for Action-Adventure and Religious Fiction since it launched on Feb 7th. It has also stayed between #700 – #1000 on the US Kindle store in that time, selling between 200-350 copies per week. You can see the first royalty cheque here if you missed it! You can also see the whole journey of the book from idea to publication here.

Pentecost currently has 40 reviews and an average of 4.5* on Amazon.com, so you can check out what others think of it. It’s available in print or ebook formats from Amazon and other online bookstores.

      Hi Elle, I’m glad you like the photos – yes, I’ll definitely get some more up of Oxford and other locations soon. I’m going to start to collect photos for the next book as well!

    You have done so amazing with this book! I get excited for you every time I stop by the blog and read your latest updates. And how awesome that book ties it with a holiday? Best of luck with the re-launch.

      Thanks Katie! I knew it would tie in with the festival, and one that is little used. I’m ranking on the front page of Google for Pentecost as well which is funny.

    I’ve been following your blog for a while now and totally appreciate all you do for aspiring authors (including me). I’ve been meaning to order Pentecost from Amazon for the past two weeks. When I signed onto their site today, wouldn’t you know it – only one available in stock. I nabbed it! I’ll be sure to post a review on Amazon.
