Spring Newsletter

The Pro Se version of To Die A Stranger is now three months old. Not sure how it’s selling – one disadvantage of being with a publisher is that you don’t get the instant feedback on sales that you do when you’re self-pubbed. I bought half a dozen and gave some away to friends and relations, my sister bought three and I know of a few others sold in the UK. It’s POD, so it won’t vanish from the shelves. Amazon did discount it for a while, so it’s worth watching out for a reduced price in the future. I have no control over that, as it’s all down to Amazon.

After a dry patch, I’m starting to write again. The sequel to TDAS, With Amber Tears, has been finished for a while, but I’ve never been totally happy with it and it was a little on the short side. I ripped the first half of it apart – rather like opening up a tin of spam along one side with an old-fashioned can-opener – and added two new characters and a bit more world-building. I think it’s better now. Dave’s going to read it and run an edit then, if we’re happy with it, it can go to Pro Se.

Warbird was accepted by a small publisher – it’s being edited and is in search of an appropriate cover. The plan is to bring it out later this year.

Judging from its Amazon rankings, the e-book of Blood Type is still selling. It isn’t out in paperback yet – I’ll let you know when that happens.

Spring has sprung here – we’ve had snowdrops and daffodils, and are now into violets, honesty and forsythia. The apple blossom is still in bud, and seems a little late this year. My father’s lawn is full of self-seeded primroses – not only yellow, but blue, pink, purple and red – plus violets in several shades of purple. He even has violets growing in his drive!
