ABOUT KATE

MY NAME IS NINA BY KATE HALE THE FIRST OF MY MURDER MYSTERY NOVELS
IS NOW UP FOR GRABS!

DO YOU WANT ONE OF THOSE RARE BOOKS THAT GRABS YOUR ATTENTION
STRAIGHT UP? ONE OF THOSE RACY NOVELS THAT WHEN YOU'RE FINISHED YOU'RE
GUTTED BECAUSE IT'S OVER?

Dear Readers,

My name is Kate Hale and I want to welcome you to my first ever
website! I have exciting news. I am launching the first of many murder
mystery novels set in Russia and New Zealand and I want to share it
with the world!

My racy novel is called _My Name is Nina _and in it you will find
blood, guts, travel, love, heroes and villains. If you like these
things made into a great story then read on.

WHAT AM I DOING HERE WITH A WEBSITE?

WHY DIDN'T I GO TO A PUBLISHING HOUSE TO PUBLISH MY BOOK?

Well, I'll tell you why:

* I want to share with you my first ever murder mystery thriller.
Yes, I have written a ripper of a read and I want to share it with the
world.
* I want people not only in New Zealand -where I am from to read
it, but I want anyone who can read well enough in English to have
access to it - and that includes my students in Russia and Spain!

AND WHAT BETTER WAY THAN TO SHOVE IT ON THE WEB?

I'm using the internet to reach as many people as possible. This is
of course not the only reason.

WOULD YOU NOT AGREE THAT ARTISTS ARE A BUNCH OF HARDWORKING PEOPLE?


Would you not be upset or _at_ _least_ disappointed if you worked
your hide off for hours and hours until dawn, while holding down a
full time job over months working on the one thing you _really_ love
just to be told you would only get a few pastry crumbs from the pie
for all your hard work?

How would you feel about _that_? Well I can tell you that the
thought of doing all that hard work on something I am that passionate
about for an overall 6% of the pie makes me want to vomit. Further
that 6% wouldn't even cover any of the gristle which is to say it
would just not be worth all the buggering around.

OF COURSE THAT IS THE WAY IT ALWAYS _USED TO BE_. BUT I DON'T
BELIEVE IT HAS TO REMAIN THAT WAY!

WE HAVE THE WORLD WIDE WEB!

Authors can do it themselves. So can a lot of other hardworking
creative people who do what they do because they love to do it and
also want to achieve a nicer lifestyle because they get to eat more of
_their_ pie.

Ask yourselves this: If the author puts in _so much _why does he or
she get so little back? Why is it so unfair? Why should publishers
take so much? This is why I have become my own publisher. I am not
afraid of hard work, but I _do _expect to get a fair deal and get out
what I put in. Did I put in 6% effort? Hell, no!

WHY SHOULD I GRAB YOUR BOOK, KATE?

* Do you like exciting stories?
* Racy stories that make you grin?
* Love, murder, obsession and death?
* Or how about just a bloody good read?
* A breathtaking story about New Zealand and Russia that is
gripping?
* Something by a modern exciting New Zealand author?

AND, WHAT IF I TOLD YOU, YOU CAN TRY PART OF MY BOOK FOR FREE?

Don't you just love those great books you just can't put down? And
equally you can't stand anything that rambles and doesn't grab let
alone hold your attention?

I want to chuck books like that onto the carpet for my dog to chew.


So, I want you to try my book for nothing because I know it's one
rip-roaring thrill of a read that won't let you go until the very last
word.

MARK MY WORDS: there is something in there for everyone. _My Name Is
Nina_ is:

* Modern.
* It thrills.
* It kills.
* Guys will like it.
* Girls will like it.
* Grandma will like it - even with all the _modern_ language.
* And it reads so fast!
* And you get the first 4 chapters free!

WOULDN'T YOU WANT JUST A PEEK AT A BOOK LIKE THAT?

IF YOU DO YOU CAN TRY PART OF _MY NAME IS NINA_ FOR YOURSELF FOR
NOTHING AND SEE IF IT IS FOR YOU.

Or if you can't wait to see what Nina does that causes so much
grief for her and everyone else in the book and _why_ she is at the
centre of the story and what _happens_ to her after she leaves Moscow
and arrives in New Zealand, then

ANOTHER REASON I AM TURFING MY BOOK ONTO THE INTERNET

I don't like being told I have to tone things down. When I write it
comes straight from the gut. I see these characters going about their
business and I see the good things they do, the bad things they do and
the downright ugly things they do. And I don't like the idea of being
told I have to lighten up or cut this out because it's too violent or
add this in for whatever reason. I like _Nina _just the way it is and
if you don't agree with me then I want to hear from you! If you _do
_agree with me I also want to hear from you.

WHAT MY EARLY READERS THOUGHT OF MY BOOK

I've had a group of people read my book already (in the editing
stages _and _when I was still planning to go with a publishing house
and _before_ I did the math) and they all had one thing in commonthey
couldn't put it down!

"_My Name is Nina_ is the first novel by Kate Hale, a young
promising writer from New Zealand. This breathtaking story is about
Russia and New Zealand, about love and death - and about the decisions
we all make in difficult life circumstances.

A gripping plot, deep understanding of human psychology and an
exciting mixture of horror, realism and mysticism will not leave you
indifferent, no matter how old you are, where you are from and what
your reading preferences can be.
Personally, I am not particularly interested in horror books, but I
was totally seized by this one when Kate asked me to be one of the
first readers!

The novel will certainly be appreciated by readers who like precise
language, enjoy dynamic stories and are eager to know how far we all
can go trying to save our lives and those of our beloved"

Elena Solovyeva, writer, translator,and English teacher from Istra,
Russia

In fact when I was writing it I couldn't put it down either! Nina is
such a surprising book! Have a look at what one of my other readers
had to say:

When I first started reading "My name is Nina " I never thought I
would finish it...You see I am one of those people who almost never
reads anymore and I figured I'd get through it a chapter at a time
each evening...
I even had to be given a printed version of the thing to get me
started...
How wrong I was ...

I turned the last page at 6:30 am the following morning and started
trying to think of a good excuse for when I would ring in to pull a
sickie at work ...

This book was amazing ...

The storyline flowed from beginning to end without any boring parts
and I just could not put it down ...It was funny ..It was exciting
...It was unpredictable ...I do not recommend it for people on heart
medication...

And it is one of the few stories I have read where I could seriously
imagine being right there as a part of it ...You see most stories tend
to be bigger than us ...but when reading Nina I felt like it was
happening to the people who live just down the road - flawed human
beings, just like you and me.

Now

If you have read this far then you are probably wondering who I am:
Who is KATE HALE?

How does she think she's going to sell her book on the internet and
all by herself?

The answer is__

__If my book is as hot as my early readers say it is then there is a
market for it. Because all readers want (and I know this being a
reader myself) is a bloody good read. Not some weak willied rubbish
you can't wait to get rid of. We want a book that yanks us in by the
nose hairs and doesn't let go! If we are given that, then we do what
we are supposed to do as readers - we read.

IF YOU READERS TRY MY _MY NAME IS NINA _AND LOVE IT YOU WILL COME
BACK FOR MORE. IT MAKES SENSE DOESN'T IT?
