Honiton author Glyn Smith-Wild launches his latest instalment of his Ben Coverdale series.

A Honiton author, who self-published his first novel, is preparing to launch the second book in the trilogy after receiving a positive response from readers.

Glyn Smith-Wild, who is retired, will be releasing the next instalment in his Ben Coverdale series, Repercussions, on December 12.

This follows the release of his debut novel Sanctuary, which was released back in May, and has enjoyed good internet sales.

It has taken a year for Mr Smith-Wild to complete the book, which he says is a much more “complex” story.

“It was a different experience writing this book because I have learnt a lot since writing the first book and the story was much more complex to write,” he said.

“When the first book came out, I was a third of the way through writing this book.”

Repercussions continues to follow the life of Ben Coverdale as he tries to settle down with his love interest, Mary.

However, the past soon catches up with them in the form of Donald.

Mr Smith-Wild added: “It is more of a thriller than the first one was and there is a little romance going on in the background.

“I am quite excited about launching it - this time we have got people following the first book and want to read this one.”

However, he admits that since becoming a writer he has never worked harder in his life.

Mr Smith-Wild’s debut efforts received a positive response from readers and he said the first novel did better than he expected.

He said: “I am absolutely delighted with the reviews I have had and it is readers that matter as far as I am concerned.

“I am grateful to the people who have supported us.”

The new book will be sold in Toast, Archway Books in Axminster, Paragon Books in Sidmouth, and will also be available online.

Mr Smith-Wild has already started the third and final book of the trilogy which he hopes to release in October or November next year.
