Introducing author Lucy Pireel, and her book Menu of Death. There’s a rumour in the writer’s universe that Lucy has somehow found away to time travel, and that’s how she manages to write, edit, support other indie writers, and quite a lot more that she gets done. I’ve also asked her to explain a little about her latest project. Read on!
About the book:
A Menu of Death
A collection of stories about vengeance, obsession, cravings, life and death.
Pick one item of the Menu or devour the entire buffet
Make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew
Read, but not with greed for
Death awaits, ready to come and collect its due
Underneath the veneer of humanity lies darkness
These eight deadly tales explore hidden desires.
Where some do what it takes to obtain what they want, others are led by events.
Whether it be a woman in need of rescue, a man who hungers for his wife, a demon lost, or wishes come true, all characters want something. Badly.
But … You can’t always get what you want, but you might just get what you need.
Wishes gone wrong, unhealthy obsessions, and cravings to sate.
A Menu of Death will take you on a blood-curdling journey that you may not survive.
About the Author:
Now this is really cool. Author Lucy Pireel (left) sitting next to the book’s cover model, Sihona Saf Robins.
Lucy Pireel is a writer who doesn’t let herself be restricted to any one genre. She loves to write in whatever direction her current story leads her.
When she’s not writing, or reading, she is practicing or teaching yoga, her other passion. Or she could be on a long hike somewhere in the beautiful British nature.
Being an author it is almost a given she has a great love for chocolate and coffee to live on while writing, but she doesn’t shy away from trying to prepare intricate dishes, for cooking is another thing she enjoys.

How To Tie The Reader To The Book
Us authors are always looking for ways to engage with the reader, to try and get them to invest in us, in our words on an emotional level, but I’ve gone a step further and tried something else.
Why not try and make that reader a part of the process and give them the chance to be there along the way with me. To be able to say, “Without me that book wouldn’t have been published!”
For that reason, and the obvious one, I’ve started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com http://igg.me/at/OriginsRevealed/x/5686782 to that purpose.
People can contribute to the campaign and the funds raised will all go towards getting my new full length novel The Power of Three. Because let’s be honest this indie business is a costly one if you want to do it right.
There’s editing and professional, high end editors don’t come cheap, and then there’s cover design, but the main reason for me is marketing.
The campaign itself is a marketing tool due to the fact it gets my name out there. Also supporters will receive perks in the form of my other books, or original artwork, a mentioning in the book, here is the one thing that should tie my reader to me and the book.
Will it tie potential readers of the novel to the book? I have no idea, this is an experiment which I hope will succeed, because it would be great if authors could start a new movement and stop with the endless ‘buy my book’ posts on social media and find a new way to engage with potential readers of their work even in the pre-published stage.
Thanks for joining us today Lucy, and all the very best with this. Be sure to come back and share how it all went.
