About this deal

A consumer is denied the chance to purchase the product because the supplier is gatekeeping the process. After qualifying in art, design and photography in her native South Africa, she honed her skills in several thriving design studios before moving to the UK. It was longlisted for the Bruntwood Prize, and reached the top 26% for BBC Drama Room submissions, which saw nearly 4,718 applications. What’s true is you can explore the characters mindset and psyche on the page, and it’s very liberating to do that. I try to remember what is in my control, and ultimately, the only thing I have true sway over is the quality of the written word.

Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. It’s been one of the highlights of my journey so far to meet authors online and in person – because the authors I’ve met are genuinely lovely people. I’ve observed that people, no matter who they are, tend to avoid sharing their work because the cost benefit favours the risk of ridicule. Question: should I count the 10 weeks of time waiting for an editor to snap up Dive – shall we just agree to discount those 1680 hours?This was with a robust independent publisher with marketing credentials my agent waxed lyrical about for some time. As the second publication date slipped by with a severe communication breakdown, it became clear that my riders requested from the outset would not be delivered. He works freelance as a script editor for various independent filmmakers, with a focus on genre storytelling. As for the practices themselves, most were justified by jargon and industry speak, the language of which was alien to me when I first took tentative steps into the world of publishing.

I did speak to many commercial divers, and some of the old guard from the marine police consulted me informally.

He is convinced to listen to her when his own daughter goes missing… Dive is a murder mystery and detective novel set in London. It was longlisted for the Bruntwood Prize, and reached the top 26% of submissions for BBC Drama Room, which saw nearly 4,718 applications. I was told that an indie publisher can be more nimble, more reactive to market trends than a traditional publisher can be. If you’re lucky you’ll find treasure on the foreshore; if you’re not, you could see a body being dredged from the mud. Agents should pitch to the right publishers for the manuscript in question, and you put your faith in their knowledge of the market.

It’s also a great dissolvent of motive in that evidence will quickly wash away with the tide, and that adds an element of jeopardy for the characters.I’d spent four years working on Dive on-and-off at that point, so it was hard not to take it personally. The Kickstarter for BLOCKBUSTER BOYS launched earlier this week to a very positive response, and I'll be boosting here regularly throughout the campaign. I’d disclosed in some detail what my preoccupations were when writing the book, and the demographic I hoped to reach.

I wrote without knowing what I was doing, relying on instinct, trusting the first draft would brute-force its way into being. The first book in your three-part debut crime series Dive will be published by Joffe Books on 14 January 2023.He is a freelance editor for The Literary Consultancy and teaches their self-editing online courses. My first point of contact was with the divers I met at the Captain Kidd, because that’s lived experience I simply cannot replicate. Repetition and repartee meant I overheard some of these horrors, and eventually, they’d include me from the other side of the bar. Jon studied for an MA in Dramaturgy and Script Development at Exeter University, and is an alumnus of Curtis Brown Creative. Fans of Robert Bryndza, Patricia Gibney, Angela Marsons, Biba Pearce and Line of Duty, prepare to dive into your new favourite read!
