“Every new book is a start-up business and needs to be viewed as such if it is to realise its potential”

Launches September 2nd from all good bookshops

Congratulations to Filament author, Stephen Gillen for creating such a media frenzy for his debut True Crime biography, “The Monkey Puzzle Tree”. During the countdown to his launch on September 2nd, he is being interviewed on ITV Good Morning Britain, BBC News and all the main Daily and Sunday papers.  The film of the book is already in production and the screen-writer is Kieren Suchet.

If you find crime fiction a gripping read, then true crime takes it to another level. With Stephen Gillen’s incredible story, you just couldn’t make it up!

The Money Puzzle Tree takes you from inside The Troubles in Northern Ireland where, as a boy, Stephen witnessed unspeakable brutality. From there the action moves to the East End of London and the heart of London’s brutal organised crime scene where the gangs controlled the street.

The biggest battle was staying ahead of a determined Flying Squad who wanted to take back control, whatever it took to achieve it.

The drama takes you into the frightening world of high security prisons and what happens behind the bars.  However, it is a story of redemption and inspiration that takes us from the darkest places back into the light.  It is a book you won’t be able to put down.

Getting your book published,  no matter how you achieve that, is not enough on its own to guarantee success. There is one new book published every 20 minutes in the UK. that works out to 184,000 every year – and that doesn’t include ebooks and those that are self-published.  Not every book is going to fulfil its potential and make money for its author.  If you want your book to be one of the ones that does, then the time to plan for that is now, not after you have written it.

Solving Problems - Delivering Solutions

The AuthorCraft Concierge Service is aimed at busy authors and public speakers who need a knowledgeable extra pair of hands to support them with their business.  For those that do not have the luxury of a support team behind them to provide ‘back office’ services, but could do with someone to delegate marketing, promotions, creative, production and event tasks, then the AuthorCraft Concierge Service is for you.

If might be that you need some pull up banners to be created and set up at the venue you are speaking at; it could be that you need someone to arrive at a venue and set up a table of books for sale on your behalf. Maybe you urgently need some posters of fliers to be designed, printed and dispatched and are just too busy training or speaking to do it yourself.

The AuthorCraft Concierge Service draws on our extensive team of designers, technicians, copy-writers, printers and project managers to be available to solve your problems and immediate needs.

You have your own portal on our cloud-based Author Project Management System which enables you to stay in charge of your project wherever you are in the world

His expectations of collaborative accord brings out an equivalent generosity in others, and his personal warmth achieves both understanding and collaboration that expertise alone would lack. He drives himself to the limit, yet seems able to continue to think and innovate creatively. Most noticeably he draws in others of similar talents, a hub of mutually supportive fans.
