Eternal Press will release Coasting on August 1st and Kimberly, our contest guru, will have a competition running for a download of the book and a $25 Coffee Time voucher.
The book is the first of the sea stories I wrote during the forty odd years I spent at sea, some of the others will follow, so I'm eschewing my normal prize of a download of all my current books and concentrating on this one.
I had a chuckle or two during the edits, mainly because the cultural differences between Australia and the US highlighted the different meanings we give to words. Sea-going jargon was easily explained in context, but it was the "normal" words that caught me out.
It's one of the reasons I enjoy edits so much and why I value the editor's input so highly.
I couldn't resist the temptation to insert the cover image again. Amanda Kelsey has done the story proud.
