Acknowledgements

I’d like to thank several people for helping me to get this far in my publishing career, though most of them probably don’t know just how helpful they have been.

Michael J Sulivan It was after reading Michael’s short story, ‘The Jester’, that I was inspired to write ‘Demon Hunted’, when I realised that a story did not have to begin at the beginning. Without that little bit of inspiration, I may never have started writing the stories that became ‘Tales of Engines & Demons’.

Michael is also incredibly supportive of his fellow authors, be they indie, traditional, established , or aspiring, and it was thanks to him that I discovered the next name on my list of people to thank.

David Gaughran  Without David’s book ‘Let’s Get Digital’, I may never have made the great leap to Self Publishing. Even if I had, I’d probably still be sitting at my laptop, scratching my head, wondering what it was all about. David has shattered many Self Publishing myths, and dispelled the stress I had at the thought of marketing.

T J Moore  When editing ‘Tales of Engines & Demons’ TJ went beyond what was expected of him. Not only did he supply on-point copy editing, but he also delivered some valuable insights into the overall structure of the work, and with his help I have produced something that I am immensely proud of. Working with him has also taught me some valuable lessons that I’ll be taking forward into my future work.

Guido Henkel  and Kovid Goyal  without whom I would never have been able to give my work the formatting treatment it deserves. Guido has an extensive Blog, and a published work on formatting E-books, and Kovid is the creator of calibre. Together, they made the formatting of ‘Tales of Engines & Demons’ an absolute breeze.

Virginia Marybury  For just being bloomin’ marvelous.
