...SEUMAS GALLACHER escaped from the world of finance ten years ago, after a career spanning three continents and five decades.
As the self-professed ‘oldest computer Jurassic on the planet’ his headlong immersion into the dizzy world of eBook publishing opened his eyes, mind, and pleasure to the joys of self-publishing. As a former businessman, he rapidly understood the concept of a writer’s need to ‘build the platform’, and from a standing start began to develop a social networking outreach, which now tops 35,000 direct contacts.
His first two crime-thrillers, THE VIOLIN MAN’S LEGACY and VENGEANCE WEARS BLACK blew his mind with more than 75,000 e-link downloads/sales to date. The third in what has become the ‘Jack Calder’ series, SAVAGE PAYBACK, was launched late 2013. This was followed by KILLER CITY and DEADLY IMPASSE. Number#6, NO IMPUNITY is the current Jack Calder work-in-progress.
He started a humorous, informative, self-publishers blog five years ago, never having heard of a ‘blog’ prior to that, was voted ‘Blogger of the Year 2013’ and now has a loyal blog following on his networks. He says the novels contain his ‘Author’s Voice’, while the blog carries his ‘Author’s Brand’. And he’s LUVVIN IT!
Of late, during 2017-2018, he was pleased to have been commissioned to ghostwrite three different autobiographies, and also completed a collection of his ‘blurt-it-out’ style of poetry, A FEW POETRY STOPS IN A LIFE’S JOURNEY. Also added a couple of years ago, is a small guide to social network usage for self-publishers, SELF-PUBLISHING STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL SALES. Another addition to the portfolio is the venture into AudioBooks with his first title, THE VIOLIN MAN’S LEGACY.
