Shadows of Regret - Ross Greenwood


Shadows of Regret

Today I am pleased to be able to participate in the blog tour for Shadows of Regret by Ross Greenwood.  My thanks go to Caroline Vincent. 



About the Book
If your life was ruined, would you seek redemption
or take revenge?


From the #1 bestselling author of Fifty Years of Fear, SHADOWS OF REGRET is the unforgettable story of a woman's struggle to rejoin society.

Katie committed a terrible crime. Sixteen years was the price she had to pay.

Once released from prison, she finds the world has changed. Her chances appear bleak, but Katie is a survivor.

Isolated and alone, she struggles to make sense of her new life. Starting again isn’t easy, especially after what she’s done.

Despite not feeling free or safe, Katie overcomes her fears and confronts the future. But history won’t remain forgotten.

Gradually, memories of the past are revealed. When Katie finally exposes the awful truth and sees there are others who share the blame, she must choose her path.

Will she seek redemption, or will she take revenge?


"If you enjoyed Eleanor Oliphant's journey but prefer your stories darker, this is perfect for you."
"There are writers, good writers and ones that have the power of words to captivate you in an instant. Ross Greenwood has this in spades."

Visitor to my blog

Today I am pleased to be joined by Ross Greenwood, who has taken time out of his busy schedule of promoting his new book Shadows of Regret to join me on my blog today.  I am currently reading this book and have to say it is brilliant and can’t wait to share my thoughts with you when I have finished.  Now to join Ross and hear what he has to say about: -

“The Book World”
I finished my first book four years ago. After numerous people read it and said they really enjoyed it, I sat at home one night and realised I had no idea what to do with it. Initially, I was hoping to get it made into a few books, just so I could hold it and say it was mine.
As with all things nowadays, I typed, ‘How to get published,’ into google and my journey began.
I’m sure everyone will tell you that writing the book is only part of the journey. I would say it’s more of a ride; a real rollercoaster if you can excuse the clich√©. It is hard work to finish a book and takes over your life for a while. Then you have rejections, false dawns, bad reviews, poor sales, I’ve even had people take my ideas after discussing them.
At times you wonder why you do it. But there is also the good. Once Linda Hill had introduced me to a few groups and gave me some friendly advice, I found there were many like me out there. There’s a lovely community of readers in a variety of book clubs who are happy to give their time and help, even a pleasant comment, for nothing in return. It’s just a mutual love of books. For an author, finding a great review on waking is a fantastic way to start the day.
There are other writers who you become friends with on the way. The vast majority of those are helpful and give their excellent feedback on manuscripts when I’m sure they have their own books to write. There really are too many of them for me to name.
Finally, there are bloggers, like Bev. I didn’t even know what they did, or why, at the start. They are a vital part of any book launch, and they, too, do it for the love of literature. Incredibly, they get a fair amount of grief and abuse from certain unsavoury sources.
So instead of doing a post about my book, I thought I’d just take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all those who’ve supported me and other writers over the years. It really is appreciated.

Now, I for one am grateful for Ross joining me on my blog today and sharing his writing journey and how he came to join the wonderful book world.  Even more thanks go to him for understanding the work us bloggers put in on a daily basis to share the book love.  

Now a bit of news, I am taking a step back this year from doing blog tours, not because I don't like doing them, no I LOVE THEM, but I have so many wonderful books just itching to be read that I feel I really should read some of them.  I am also ashamed to say that I have a few books of Ross' on my kindle and in paperback so by taking a bit of a break I know that I will eventually get round to reading these and then can share my thoughts. 

About the Author
 
Ross Greenwood was born in 1973 in Peterborough and lived there until he was 20, attending The King's School in the city. He then began a rather nomadic existence, living and working all over the country and various parts of the world.
 
Ross found himself returning to Peterborough many times over the years, usually, so he says “when things had gone wrong.” It was on one of these occasions that he met his partner about 100 metres from his back door whilst walking a dog. Two children swiftly followed. And, according to Ross, he is “still a little stunned by the pace of it now.”

Lazy Blood book was started a long time ago but parenthood and then four years as a prison officer got in the way. Ironically it was the four a.m. feed which gave the author the opportunity to finish the book as unable to get back to sleep he completed it in the early morning hours.

Ross Greenwood’s second book, The Boy Inside, was picked up by Bloodhound Books, and in September 2017, Fifty Years of Fear was published. The year 2018 saw the publication of his next psychological thriller, Abel’s Revenge. All his books are thought provoking, and told with a sense of humour.

Ross Greenwood hopes you enjoy reading them.
