I’m having to refresh my entire author platform.  Why?  Because some pesky author has decided to use the name Nick Travers as a character in their detective stories (I must read them).  Coincidence I’m sure, but they are ranking higher than my old Nick blog page on Google.

My previous blog was designed at the very start of the social media age and is no longer fit for purpose.  Since then Twitter, my social medium of choice, has hit the scene .  So if revamping is required, I decided to go the whole hog and design a complete new website compatible with my marketing strategies on Twitter.  In fact, the two will complement each other very well and form the start of that all important marketing funnel.

So here I am at WordPress.

So here I am at WordPress. Yeh, I’m still playing with the site and adding content, but I hope to have it all up and running soon so I can get back to the serious task of writing . Enjoy.

Appreciation for Gaia’s Brood:

“This is probably the most amazing indie story I’ve ever read and I’m not even caught up yet. The descriptive words you use paint the picture so vividly it’s almost as if I’m watching a movie and the words simply help narrate. Incredible!” Lyrical_love22 (Wattpad)

“Nina Swift is incredibly well crafted! I’m only at chapter 3, can’t stop reading it.” @Alkinea (Author of the Blue and Green Fairy Tales).

She’s back! With a mystery package to deliver, an atrocity to thwart, and a love interest in tow. Nina Swift immerses herself in Reaver culture to find the elusive Papa Doyle, cross swords with the Master Coggler, and deliver on a promise made to a dying Microtough agent.

More airships, more swashbuckling adventure, more dastardly villains, more Steampunk fun – it’s the return of the fabulous Nina Swift.

Yay! Nina is back:) And the cover is sooo gorgeous.  Alki Nea

Appreciation for Helium3 Episode 1

Nick Travers has is a superb writer with an ease of delivery while keeping the plot taut, the line of complication always ascending to the climax, the characters well-fleshed and fascinating and doing it all in an easy reading style. Jay Squires.

I couldn’t stop turning pages till the book was finished. Great story, super lesson, well done. Must read the others now to find out how things end! I give this a big 2 thumbs up!!! Ruby Wolf.

Good start to what I hope is a long series, had a feel of the academy sort of like hogwarts, but written very well.  Robert Hanaburgh, Jr.

Fun start to a kids sci-fi series that wouldn’t be out of place on your bookshelf next to the likes of Douglas Hill’s Young Legionary series. Blue.

Nice book, I enjoyed reading it. I bought the sequel. Philippe Baranger.
