Apologies if everything’s gone quiet round here – following all the excitement of the book launch, I promptly moved house!
Now the boxes are unpacked, I’m beavering away on the follow-up to Fire and Sword, which will hopefully be dispatched to the publisher early in 2014!
In the meantime, signed copies of Fire and Sword are available from me at a very reasonable rate. To those of you who have purchased the book, thank you! If you enjoyed it, then please, spread the word! Rate it on Amazon, or Goodreads. And please, raise awareness with the big retailers and encourage them to shelve Fire and Sword in the shops.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be working to get the title stocked at local venues around Renfrewshire and North Ayrshire, but it’s definitely the case that I need as many people as possible to get out there and tell their friends about the book (which will soon, I believe, also be available to borrow from Lochwinnoch Library!)
Now things are settling down round here, I hope to post more often. Over the winter, I’m looking forward to introducing you to some of the places associated with James IV and his court. Places they frequented in times of peace, and war. And I’ll talk a bit more about the writing of the novel. How I created the characters, how their actions in real life influenced the way I depicted them as fictional constructs.
And of course, I’ll be keeping you abreast with news about my second novel…
