In a PaperPlus Book Store near you

I’m so excited my books are now available in Cambridge Paper Plus book store. They can now be ordered through this retail chain nationwide. BIG THANKS to owner, Hamish Wright, pictured with me next to my favourite books! Haha PLEASE SHARE. Many thanks everyone.

Both books are enjoying four to five star status and below is some of the positive feedback:

Both my books are now available at PaperPlus in Cambridge

In the Deep End is an excellent read. With every page, I was drawn more and more into the characters, and became intrigued by the story-line that took unexpected twists and turns. Then I simply could not tear myself away from the book. I found it fascinating read. Nicky Webber is an excellent writer and as the story unveiled – it kept me riveted, all the way to the unexpected last chapter.

Long after you have put the book down, haunting images remain – such is the power and pull of Nicky’s words in ‘No Ordinary Man’. She has a sound grasp of her characters and the story-line of a war that impacted the entire world. What surprised me was the level of compassion and the resolution of this compelling story.

A powerful book. Some do it hard.I’ve always felt very fortunate to have not had to fight in a war, what a terrifying thought. Although I’ve read a bit about the war, No Ordinary Man is my first Kiwi perspective of it, a refreshingly different view very powerfully portrayed from a personal perspective. Excellent.

TRAGEDY AND JOY IN SECRET DOUBLE LIFE

No Ordinary Man, by Nicky Webber; Reviewed by Kingsley Field.

Author Nicky Webber has woven an intricate and detailed picture of this extraordinary, multi-faceted man – bullied child, brave and resourceful soldier, skilled cabinet-maker, illicit lover, estranged father, secret cross-dresser. It is a novel which evokes considerable pathos and it is a story that is gently yet undeniably touching. And astoundingly, it is based on a true story, of a real, World War II New Zealand soldier who was involved in all the events Nicky Webber has meticulously accumulated from “Nina”, the niece who befriended Mick in his later years and to whom he eventually poured out his life-long secret. It’s a quite remarkable story.

Book Two In Series

I’ve been told several times that books sell better if they’re in a series. Positive reviews of the first book make it ideal for a followup in this contemporary family/romance saga. Their are a few adjustments that have to be made of course.

(1) An amended cover for, In the Deep End, which will now have Book One, added to its cover and will need to be re-uploaded.

(2) The content in the front of the book will need “Book One” included on the header pages or front matter. Similarly the blurb will need to reference that it is the first in series with Book Two (above), soon to follow.

(3) Amending the information and notifying Amazon that both these books are linked as a series. Uploading the new covers (for both books) and the new inside title page content for the first one will need to be confirmed.

(4) None of this can happen yet, of course, you’re merely getting a heads-up that a second book in this series is in the works. It’s about half finished and the feedback on the back cover blurb was gratefully received and appreciated.AND included in the draft cover design. THANKS

I’ve amended this new cover and hope it evokes the same keen interest as the first book. Please let me know what you think? The trick is in the marketing. No Kidding!! So once Book Two is completed I will be marketing Book One and referencing Book Two in ad campaigns towards the end of the year.

I’m about half way through drafting my third book. It’s called;

Ripple Effect

Cleverly deceptive like the truth it protects

It continues with the recently published, contemporary fiction book, In the Deep End, which will become Book One (slight cover change!)

I have drafted up the blurb for the back of this new book and want to make sure it resonates with you. It’s only a few short paragraphs. Are you able to read it and suggest any amendments or edits please? I already have a good proof reader lined up to check ALL the Content! But I’d like your opinion and suggestions first.

This is a mock up of the Ripple Effect Cover as part In the Deep End series.

The Ripple Effect is the second book in the Deep End series. This captivating family saga continues with Hawke, exploring his love relationships with family and friends.

This romantic suspense deepens when he and Sacha decide to return to Los Angeles after a year in New Zealand. Their affair sets up a chain reaction that threatens their bond and exposes the family’s darkest secrets. Was it a mistake to include Fred in Hawke’s fraudulent plan and will Amira tolerate the level of deceit they all share in maintaining appearances?

The fine line between them defines the emergence and reversals of this delicate tale with unexpected love and loss exposed in this intriguing narrative. The cleverly drawn characters could comfortably live next door, as they bring you into their private real-life struggle to resolve the emotional web they have woven. This fast-paced story is unstoppable as the plot twists and turns, making for an unforgettable study in the complexities of modern relationships.

Read, In The Deep End, Book One, in this series to maximise your enjoyment of this fascinating contemporary novel.

TWO GREAT Book Reviews

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful feedback I’ve been getting for my two new books – both published this year. Yesterday I received two GREAT book reviews from delighted readers.

“This book is a superb piece of work: an incredibly sensitive and perceptive insight into both the female and male emotional psyche. I read, In the Deep End, straight through – between laughter and tears. You are truly exceptional. Can’t wait for masterpiece Number Three.” Sean Lowe

“Long after you have put the book down, haunting images remain – such is the power and pull of Nicky’s words in ‘No Ordinary Man’. She has a sound grasp of her characters and the storyline of a war that impacted the entire world. What surprised me was the level of compassion and the resolution of this compelling story.”  Karen Bowller
