‘The Cancer’ by Niamh Brown – Christmas Special: Save over 30%!

I recently had the pleasure of having my science fiction short story ‘The Cancer’ reviewed by +Charles Strebor on Google+ It was a wonderful boost and it prompted me to do something I had been meaning to do for a while, which was to update the cover (see above) and a few other details.

I’ve been trying to get the discount option working on the new version as well, but it doesn’t seem to want to work so I’ve reduced the price by over a third instead. (I only wish cutting the cancer rate were so easy.)

I also updated the store front details to use Hermit Studio Press, now that we have the business set-up (it was originally Niamh Press). For a direct link to the ebook ‘The Cancer’ click here.

Unfortunately when I updated the project on Lulu I managed to lose my only other review. Therefore I would love to hear what you think of the story and the new cover (which I put together myself). Feel free to comment on this blog or on Lulu if you can. I really appreciate your feedback 🙂

If you are quick and have a lulu account you can use the promotional code shown on the front page for a further 20% off until Friday the 14th of December!

Writing Achievement Unlocked

So far things have been a little slow on the publishing front of Hermit Studio right now as the main focus is being put into the games and photography projects scheduled (as our first major publishing project will an an annual anthology). This week however Niamh Brown, a member of Hermit Studio, received a gift of a collection of comments handwritten in ink in a leather bound book from the good people at bhuman.co.uk This was for donating her story to them for their anthology of stories of courage for people in hard times. Niamh has been seriously writing for over a decade now and although she has written online for five years this will be her first time in print once the book is released and donated to those in need.
