D-BOYS Paperbacks!

So I'm super-tickled to announce that – many years and thousands of lives later – I have launched lovely paperback editions of my D-BOYS books: D-BOYS and COUNTER-ASSAULT!

Available from Amazon, Amazon Europe – and, erm, other places! I am told (by the super-lovely people at CreateSpace) that this includes: “bookstores and online retailers, libraries and academic institutions, and CreateSpace Direct (wholesale).” And but of course Amazon sells 41% of new books in the U.S. anyway…

As an addendum, I’ll add that I still really like both these books, but particularly COUNTER-ASSAULT – in addition to proofing the paperback, I’ve also been reviewing work in progress for the forthcoming audiobook edition; it was a pretty ambitious project, and I think I pulled it off – and readers seem to really like it, as well. Uniquely amongst all my titles (and the vast majority of books, virtually all of which get negative reviews, no matter how fabulous), this one enjoys a 4.8-star average for reviews on Amazon – on all 5-star (82%) and 4-star (18%) reviews. That's zero 3-star, 2-star, or 1-star reviews. I don't know how I pulled that off, and don’t expect it to last forever, but it’s pretty damned gratifying. I’m blessed with some truly awesome readers, and this is one of their kindest gifts to me. (*)

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
