Gosport born author self-publishes debut novel

Gosport born debut author T.M. PAYNE has spent five years writing her first novel To Catch a Butterfly.
Although the events, place names and characters are fictitious, the setting for the book was inspired by her childhood memories growing up around the Solent and the Isle of Wight.
The story begins on a dark March evening in 1979 when a torrential rainstorm lashes the Hampshire coast. Two eye-witnesses watch as a series of events unfold; events that shock and baffle the local police. Eighteen years later the truth of what really happened that night is revealed. A truth more shocking than anyone could have imagined.
The novel has received great reviews to date, being described as ‘A book you can’t put down’. It is filled with twists and turns that tug at the emotions and puts the reader right there with the characters and their lives.

The author is currently working on her second novel and is trying to self-promote the ebook by approaching as many locally based newspapers and magazines as she can in order to promote the novel. She actually makes very little money out of any sales, but right now, it’s about getting people to know about the book and once they have read it, if they leave a review, this way she is more likely to attract a publisher.

To Catch a Butterfly by T.M. PAYNE is now available to download from Amazon or you can simply read it as a sample Kindle book and possibly leave a short review to help the author.
