For some ‘very, very, very strange reason’ sometimes I see my reviews on Amazon and sometimes they ‘just disappear’ only to ‘re-appear’ at a later stage ………
Here is the latest reviews I could find. A big thank you to Ron Merrin and Kim ….. and YES, definitely a sequel coming.
And please, keep the reviews coming too.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 10 August 2014
By Ron Merrin –
This review is from: AK-CRA: (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed the book immensely. A great storyline with the characters being refreshingly aware of global issues that confront us all. The Kindle version is excellent value for money. There has to be a sequel!
5.0 out of 5 stars R Taylor Ward knows the meaning of “Cliff-hanger”! 5 August 2014
This review is from: AK-CRA: (Kindle Edition)
R Taylor Ward knows the meaning of “Cliff-hanger”! I was just getting into this book when it ended in serious suspense! I can’t wait to find out what will happen next! The world of Ak-cra is cleverly crafted and different to any other underwater world I’ve ever read about before. I love how bits and pieces of the civilisation are revealed throughout the story. The characters are strong and quirky like the CE Trio LOVE THEM! This is a great book to read with kids. My 9yo daughter loved the book specially the idea of aliens living in the ocean. It also sparked a conversation about climate change.
Have sold a lot of books during the first week that Ak-cra has been available in paperback.
Loads of people are coming up to me, or emailing / texting ….. and I can tell you now…..there is nothing more gratifying, or exciting, than seeing the smile on someone’s face, and the animation in their voice, as they tell you ‘where they are at’ in the story, and discuss characters and plot lines with you.
They are truly engaged with the story and I am enjoying it immensely.
Thank you to everyone, from the bottom of my heart.
I’m stoked with the feedback.
AK-CRA has been published ! ! …………..I have climbed my Everest.

‘Ak-cra’ is available for purchased on Amazon ….. and a truckload of printed copies should be with me by midweek.
What is it they say about working with children and animals?

“GIVE AWAY TO A GOOD HOME”
March madness has arrived and to celebrate I’m giving away some Ak-cra goodies.
Fancy an Ak-cra phone case, or maybe a t-shirt or autographed postcard…….. or better still, an autographed book signed by the author *me* with a personal message ‘just for you’.
It’s Easy ……. and you know all the worthwhile things always are.
All you have to do is:
Go to my facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Akcralanders – and go to my ‘GIVE AWAY TO A GOOD HOME” post, then:
1. LIKE my facebook page (see the big thumbs up symbol …click on it ….. that’s for those who may be new to facebook).
2. LEAVE a comment on this thread ….. could be as simple as a or’ gidday’ or a ‘pick me’. I’ll even settle for the letter ‘L’ (yup, that ones an ‘insider joke’).
Come the end of March …… everyone’s name will go into the barrel and 12 lucky winners will be announced.
Why 12? I hear you say.
12 …… is for the ’12 Reasons Why’ ….. my take on the ’12 Days of Christmas’ — the 12 Reasons to read AK-cra.
And for all my little ‘Ak-cra Rangers‘ out there, remember:
“Don’t be a Stranger, be an Ak-cra Ranger.
“Don’t be a Zero, be an Ak-cra Hero!”
……and yes, no matter where you live in this great big beautiful world of ours, I will post your prize (it may just take a ‘wee while’ if you live in the jungles of Borneo, or the Highlands of Papua New Guinea or the Siberian wilderness) but she’ll get there none the less.
Enjoy … and I can’t wait to hear from you.
When is black too black?
It seems when it comes to printing …….. anything over 240% is too black.
Ak-cra’s sensational covers are still being tweaked …. to get the ‘blackness’ down from 300% to 240%.
It’s all got to do with the ‘ink’ apparently.
*insert heavy sigh and a tear drop sliding slowly down my cheek*….and CUE the VIOLIN MUSIC coz I am feeling very sad and sorry for myself at the moment.
The finish line has been insight for so long now it is driving me crazy ! ! ! !
Alright …. rant over.
Onto more pleasant things ….. more Ak-cra promotional ‘stuff’ arrived today – which brought a smile to my dial and a lift to my spirits.
Hopefully my next update will be to say that a printed ‘proof’ copy of Ak-cra is on its way.
