Perfect timing for reading on the beach!

Sunday, 7 August 2022

Dear Supporters

Thanks once again to everyone who supported Cold Dawn. Copies should now be with most of you, along with pots of comb honey and prayer flags. Maybe, deliveries to Australia and the U.S. will take another few days.

Perfect timing for the summer holidays and lounging around by the pool, at the beach, or on the summit of a hill.

I thought I'd share the bespoke 'Cold Dawn' labels…

Wednesday, 25 May 2022

Dear supporters

The final stage (feels like the 100th) stage of the proofread is over, and the files for the cover and the internals for Cold Dawn have been signed off by all parties. We are good to go!

So, Cold Dawn will be printed next month, you should get your copy in July, and the book will be published nationally on the 18th August.

Arrangements are currently being made for the book…

** Breaking news ** Cold Dawn will be published on 18 August, and you should get your copy(ies) a few weeks before.

This means the deadline for names in the back is closing very soon . . . so if you know anyone who’s interested, get them to sign up by 13 February.

Currently, I’m engaged in the copyedit – with another brilliant editor Mary Chesshyre. Put simply, her job is…

Dear Supporters

Finally, I’ve come up for air!

I’ve been editing the manuscript for Cold Dawn following a long document of ‘suggestions’ from my brilliant editor, Eve Seymour. I’ve moved stuff around, and written half a dozen chapters of new material, adding 15,000 words. I cut a similar amount. And then I cut another 2,000.

The result is tighter and (even!) pacier.

The manuscript now…

The Nudge

Wednesday, 28 July 2021

Dear Supporters

A COLOSSAL thank you for supporting Cold Dawn. Yesterday we reached 86% and 270 supporters; the finishing line is in sight!

So, what do I mean by The Nudge? A new Scandi crime thriller with the same shuffled cast and preposterous plot? A byzantine pseudo-sport making its debut at the Olympics?

Neither – and more later.

One of the questions I often get asked at book groups…

Dear Supporters

The BH weekend is upon us. Lockdown is easing, we’ve had a couple of days of warm weather, and our ducks have laid their first egg in six months!

                A HUGE thank you for supporting Cold Dawn. The book has reached 19% funding in the first ten days which is a great start.

Firstly, Nepal has some of the most beautiful dawns I…
