Interesting Developments...

Welcome back and sorry for the lengthy delay!

It's been a busy time of late what with proofreading and further editing but the latest stage of my arduous yet still rather exciting journey is done. Another mountain climbed!

So the proofreading is complete from my end and I'm very happy with it. I have asked to see the manuscript one last time before it goes to print just so that I can be sure it all looks as good as it possibly can.

I also ventured down to London to meet my publishers at their fifth anniversary party which was great fun, though I really wasn't feeling well - I've been struck down with the flu the past couple of weeks but hey, it's that time of year. It still did not stop me working on my book on the train there and back, then working that night on my return at my usual job and then a 13.5 hour shift the very next day. I believe that work is always good for the soul and who wants to stay at home feeling miserable when you can momentarily forget about it and work through it? That's my ethic anyway.

So what comes next?

I'm at that awkward position where I can only tell you so much. The novel was due to be released this month. It will now be delayed until early next year. However, the reason for this is a VERY EXCITING ONE and you won't be disappointed! I can't say anything yet until Unbound make their official announcement but suffice to say it's all good. 

What I can say is that I will be doing a group book launch in the new year as well as my own launch and this promises to be very exciting as I will be revealing my novel alongside two other Unbound authors. 

Also, I will be reading from A Murder Of Crows next week in Edinburgh. (see photo) The event is FREE and is already fully booked but they are looking to create extra space so please don't let that deter you! 

Once again, thank you all for your continued support and interest. The novel is now 120% funded (and still in the Unbound funded books top twenty!) Thanks to my latest patrons, Paul Holbrook, Ruth Taylor and Keith Sleight.

Best Wishes,

You ol' tease... go on, tell us. Tell us now! It's being released on parchment, right? On vellum? Papyrus scrolls in dactylic hexamters? Am I close?!
