My latest novel, Timsehaft, is now available from Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/315392
Also, it’s just been shipped out to other outlets such as iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/the-jigsaw-and-the-fan/id589953213?mt=11
Until January 16th 2013 it’s available absolutely free by using the coupon code ED38V at the end of the Smashwords checkout.
It’s a light-hearted ghost story with biting satire pulled from my life experiences and observations, including how badly people in positions of power treat others.
Ashday’s Child was accepted on to Smashwords’ Premium Catalogue, less than a week after publication. Smashwords are now preparing to ship it to outlets such as W.H. Smiths, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, and the Diesel eBook Store.
Here’s a synopsis of the story: In a distant, simple society which rose after a nuclear holocaust, a young couple realise with horror that they have inadvertently transgressed a major, but unjust, law. Their baby is due to be born in the forbidden second quarter of the year: it will be an accursed Ashday’s Child.
Can Jontil and Laoni Almana find a way to save their own lives and the life of their unborn baby, which will be forfeit under this harsh law? The dystopian undertones of the apparent utopian and simple, non-technological society of Thiecon are represented by the All-Seeing-All-Powerful-One and the Star-Gazer. To say nothing of the Destroyers of Evil…

Sales are going well…mainly thanks to word-of-mouth recommendation. It’s the twist in the tail that everyone’s talking about.
Also, I’m currently working on my third novel, which has a December publication date. I’m just about on schedule with it!
Again, thanks to the best design agency in Leicestershire, Socius, for their excellent work on the front covers.
Book sales have started! How cool is that?
My novella Malfunction was published by the American online publisher Smashwords this morning.
It’s a time paradox story. Following a devastating explosion in a pioneering new energy system, its creator is taken several hours back in time by a mysterious tramp, to prevent the critical malfunction. Then things take a sinister turn…
Smashwords will be publishing a further six of my books over the coming couple of years — another novella, four full length novels, and a collection of short stories.
Malfunction is only $1.99, so all downloads of it would be gratefully received by this struggling author! In most formats you can download the first 30% free as a sample. It’s available from the catalogue on the Smashwords website, or from my author page there: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/StewartJBint
My thanks go to Socius…without doubt the best design agency in Leicestershire…for the wonderful front cover they produced for me. Thanks, Sharon and your team.
Chosen the cover for Malfunction. Design agency Socius, from Ashby in Leicestershire, have come up with something that captures the very essence of the story in a single illustration.
Publication date gets closer. Very exciting!
Just seen two alternative versions of the front cover for my novel “Malfunction,” from the design agency. They are terrific!
Well done to Socius, from Ashby, in Leicestershire. You must have the best designers in the UK.
Leicestershire FA have again fallen foul of all right-thinking people. First of all they do the right thing. Then they follow that up by doing the wrong thing.
They quite correctly threw out an E20a charge against Desford Football Club, after being told in no uncertain terms that the allegations in assistant referee Darren Withers’ report were simply not true.
But despite this, they are now refusing to apologise for those damaging and hurtful comments. All right-thinking people will agree that an organisation should apologise when someone acting in an official capacity on their behalf, writes something that the organisation itself has now ruled is unproven.
