The Ellroy Deflection

Here we go.  It's taken a few years to get to this point, but my first completed novel, 'The Ellroy Deflection,' has now been uploaded to Amazon and should go live within the next 24 hours.  I only stumbled upon self-publishing it as an eBook last week and have found it extremely easy to take forward.  Working full-time, as most would know, doesn't leave you with a lot of spare time to write a novel when there are so many other pressures in life. But, clich├ęd as it may seem, and as George McFly puts it, "if you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything."  I thought that I wouldn't get anywhere until I found a publisher, or an agent to find me a publisher.  However, the internet potential is now huge and my work will shortly be going global.  I've adapted it, formatted it, designed a cover and I submitted it to Amazon yesterday at the low introductory price of £1.49.  It's a very encouraging and exciting development and I shall be documenting my progress here.
