Audio Book of Echoes of a Storm

I am very pleased to say that the Audio Book version of Echoes of  Storm will be released shortly. As I have received the following email from ACX

Hi Alan

  • Your audiobook will go through both ACX and Audible quality assurance (QA) rounds.
  • Once it passes, we will let you know and begin distributing it on Amazon, Audible and iTunes. The whole process usually takes up to 10-14 business days, as long as there are no problems.
  • If your audiobook does not pass QA for any reason, you and Cari Scholtens will be contacted right away with instructions for how to remedy this.

Exciting times 🙂

Tea – A Most Unusual Short Story

By far my most successful short story has to be “Tea”, as it has been downloaded from Amazon just under 1’000 times around the world including USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Japan, Australia and India.

For 4 days in Nov 13 it held the No. 1 position in Free > Fiction > Short Stories in Japan (sold through Amazon)

For 2 days in Oct 14 it held the No.1 position in Free> Kindle Store > Books > Gay & Lesbian > Fiction > Horror in the UK (Sold through Amazon)

And currently its No. 11, in the UK, in the Amazon charts for Kindle Store > Books > Gay & Lesbian > Fiction > Horror

This most unusual short story always has the ability to confound me, as I am no too sure why it is so popular!

So what is it about? Simply put, the story of ‘Tea’ is about a six hundred year old werewolf having tea with a seventy year old gay tailor. However, that is just the story it’s not what the book is about

The book is about – Being old, living with the choices you make through your life, unusual friendships, family, being brave, hiding what you are from the world and loneliness.

So if you fancy something slightly different to read, why not try “Tea” you can read the first few pages for free on Amazon and make up your mind after that.

As always Saskia created a wonderful book cover
‘Tea’ is part of ‘The Storm Series’ set of books, which currently include a trilogy, three books of short stories and a number of promo stories. The ‘Storm Series is an adult, bittersweet, dark fantasy series that deals with relationships, loss, power, prejudice and ultimately, the true ‘monster’ that lurks inside of us.

Its taken me three years but i finally have a No.1 book in the UK

Its taken me three years but I finally can say I have a No.1 book in the UK and I cannot stop smiling.

The book in question is my short story “Tea” and its currently number one in the Amazon UK Kindle charts under the following category  Kindle Store > Books > Gay & Lesbian > Fiction > Horror

‘Tea’ is taken from a book of short stories called ‘Stories for a Storm Filled Night’, and is the most successful of my short stories released under their own cover. It has been downloaded just under 800 times around the world including USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Japan and India.

At last I have a book in a ‘paid for’ top twenty on Amazon : )

My short story ‘Tea’ is currently number 20 on Amazon (UK) Bestsellers Rank: in Books > Fiction > Gay & Lesbian > Short Stories.

I’m used to having my books in the top 40 of Fantasy, Sci-fi, short story etc when I put them on free promotion, however, this is the first time It has happened on a paid for list : )

Who said that a short story based on a werewolf and an old, gay, tailor drinking tea would never work lol : ) (I’m very happy if you have not guessed)

Sorry, but I just had to share : )

So far I have had three reviews on Amazon (all from woman funnily enough) two from the UK and 1 from USA. Plus one on Goodreads

5.0 out of 5 stars A very simple but a very powerful tale 8 Dec 2012
By Morgana
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
  I have read all of Alan’s stories and enjoyed them all, but this is the first time I have given him 5 star’s (I normally give 4 star’s). The reason I have given 5 stars is very simple, he made me cry. The ending to Tea is such a bitter/sweet ending that I actually had a tear in my eye when I finished it.
Alan writes real believable characters that you can’t help but engage with.
I recommend that you read this book
5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC BOOK 13 Mar 2014

  Such an amazing book- so interesting story! So well written and such a creative mind! A definite must buy! Well done Alan Scott- i’m a big fan!
5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite 17 Nov 2012
By lisa wolverton – Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
  As expected, Mr. Scott delivers a dark and bittersweet tale. Even though this is a short story based on his novels, there is enough backstory to keep the reader well-informed of how the characters are linked and to make the plot consistent with his other works. It can be read as a stand-alone or as a complement to his series.
For me, ‘Tea’ is about choices and consequences, fears and fears realized – a poignant and touching narrative of unlikely friends. ‘Tea’ is  my favorite of all his stories, so far. I look forward to more.

From Goodreads

This short story links in with Mr. Scott’s other novels. I have not read his other work but Tea contains enough background and the writing is so wonderful that I was able to feel the melancholy surrounding the characters but really, really wanted to know their complete back story!
