The Guernsey Donkey

Guernsey, Rachel's Story is still doing well, as is The Causeway, but Rachel's Shoe continues to lead all the titles with the highest and most consistent sales every month.

My tongue in cheek short stories about The God Particle are also available now (see )but the next big project is another occupation story, provisionally called The Guernsey Donkey.

The story, similar in style to the first part of Rachel's Shoe, will be released towards the end of this year or early in 2013.

Impact of Guernsey Sales

As Guernsey downloads in the USA topped 11,000 in February, over 6,000 in one day, Rachel's Shoe and The Causeway continue to attract their own customers.

Hundreds of copies have been selling every month for around a year and the sales have increased steadily, especially in recent weeks. The titles attract different customers, some of whom want to try Rachel's Shoe first and then go on to purchase The Causeway, others jump straight in with the slightly higher priced Guernsey.

Although paperbacks are still selling, Kindle sales now dwarf all other formats.

Guernsey released in USA

A new volume has just been released in the USA that brings together Rachel's Shoe and The Causeway !

Guernsey - Rachel's Story is 434 pages and will also be available on Kindle very soon. The UK edition of the paperback will be published in 2012 but UK customers can still order it via Amazon for delivery here if they can't wait until next year! I hope you enjoy the complete story in one novel.

Kindle Sales Outstrip Paperbacks!

In common with many other titles, sales of Rachel's Shoe and The Causeway on Kindle are now more than double those of traditional book versions.  Even the Harry Potter books are due to be released on Kindle, with J K Rowling set to benefit from the upsurge in Kindle sales - justifiably so, in my opinion.

A potential movie of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society should boost sales of Rachel's Shoe and The Causeway further, as interest is re-kindled (if you'll forgive the pun!) in the occupation of the Channel Islands.

The industry is going through some seismic shifts but it's still great to be writing and enjoying the fact that everyday people somewhere are buying or borrowing my books and hopefully enjoying them!

The collaborative novel Passage to Redemption is also now available and I'm working on a very different story that should be published by the end of this year or early next.

Thank you again for your support in buying and recommending my books!

The Causeway is now Available!

In both paperback and Kindle eBook formats, on both sides of the Atlantic, the sequel to Rachel's Shoe is finally available.

I very much hope you enjoy the story as it follows on from events at the shareholders' meeting in Munich, but soon returns to the Channel Islands.  This time, there is more of the story set in the islands of Alderney, Sark, Jersey, and of course my namesake; Lihou, as well as Guernsey and Herm.

Without wanting to give too much away, there is an unexpected twist which I hope will surprise and delight you!

You can follow the links on this page to find the paperback or Kindle versions at both and Other outlets around the world will be stocking in due course.

The worldwide collaboration project also concluded with the release earlier this month on Kindle of Passage to Redemption. Although the UK side of Amazon is not ready yet, the paperback or Kindle version can be purchased from These, and other Acclaimed Books titles, can be found at

If you don't have a Kindle Reader, you can download some software to read Kindle books on your PC or Apple Mac. This should be on Amazon as well.

The next story now looms and I have already started working on it - watch this space for more details!

The sequel is now ready, just a few days to go!

All the files are edited and ready for publication so the book will be available on Amazon in just a few days.

The Causeway really is a family affair. Not only is part of the story set on Lihou Island, but the editing was done by my wife; who now runs a small business, editing books professionally. Gill has done a fantastic job and I'm very grateful to her, especially as she didn't charge me; although I suspect I'll pay in kind!

To top it all, my son is studying Graphic Design in preparation for University and he provided the cover photograph and design. You can see Sam's work for yourself above - pretty good eh?

As for the story, I really hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

I will, of course, let you know as soon as it is actually available on and but as soon as it's listed, Amazon will be able to deliver. The other distribution channels around the world will follow shortly after.

I'm sixty this month so it's a great birthday treat to see the sequel to Rachel's Shoe finally released!

The Causeway nears release!

Several months after the release of Rachel's Shoe, the sequel has finally been written.

A novella, The Causeway takes an unexpected route from the conclusion in Rachel's Shoe but I won't spoil your enjoyment by saying any more about the story itself. Suffice to say it's set once more in the Channel Islands with more than a passing mention of the island that shares my name!

The first complete draft is now undergoing editing and the final product should be available during November from and Traditional book shops will also be able to order from the release date and a Kindle version will follow soon after the paperback release.

I very much hope you enjoy the follow up to my original story which, I'm pleased to say, has sold well and received positive feedback from all over the world.

The next project is now under way and promises to be quite a surprise for those of you who have enjoyed my books so far. It is a comedy with some rather unusual characters but again, I'll keep my powder dry about the story for now!

You can also follow me on Twitter if you wish, the address is!/GuernseyPete and please feel free to drop me a line if you would like to know more about any of my projects or that all important release date!

That's about it for now
