The Robin Almanac - December 2023
I have been collaborating once again with the distinguished avian author, A. Robin, Esq. in producing a special Almanac with lots of illustrations of Robin himself, as per his instructions. Available now in paperback, hardcover and kindle. I really recommend the hardcover version, by the way, which looks absolutely stunning.
Here is the link to it on the UK amazon site.
As well as a kindle version, eBooks are also available from Kobo and the Apple iStore.


General Update - January 2023

Due to some pretty major personal commitments, I am focussing more on small-scale works at the moment. So there will be no new epic historical fiction endeavours for the time being. Instead, I find myself once again helping out my friend A. Robin, Esq with his next book planned for the end of this year (2023).
I'm also toying with a series of small, easy-reading whodunits. This is very much a new departure, but one which - much to my surprise - I find I am enjoying immensely. Preparing a whole series of books with the same leading character throughout takes a fair amount of time - it being usual, I believe, to have two or three stories in a series completed prior to publishing the first one. These are not likely to appear for some time, therefore. So quite a pause in publications from yours truly. By the same token, I've decided to suspend the writing of blogposts as well.
