Innocents to the Slaughter

Wednesday, 12 December 2018

Good morning everyone,

I believe you have received a copy of Innocents to the Slaughter since you so generously contributed to its printing. I am very pleased with the quality of the book and think Unbound and their editor have done a splendid job. I particuarly.t like the cover design by Mecob which matches that of On the House. I hope you all enjoy it and look forward to your views!

Innocents to the Slaughter

Sunday, 12 August 2018

Good morning everyone,

An update for you. The cover is in the process of design and from what I have seen looks very good. It's very much in sync with the cover of On the House - which everyone seemed to like. Apart from that, the copy editor will be making final checks over the next week or so, so I expect the book to be out early Autumn. If you can let people know who have read On the House that…

Hi everyone,

A month has gone by during which time I have received the edited version of this second novel in the Hudson and Lawes Trilogy. I've just finished working through it - taking on board some very helpful comments and advice from the Unbound editor. It's a great experience having one's novel edited professionally and I keep learning. It's amazing how many silly little mistakes slip by…

Good morning everyone,

A month has gone by since Iast was in contact. The book is 'work in progress' and with the editor. Haven't got a date for publication yet, but I know it's in good hands because I'm using the same editor who looked over ​On the House ​and she did a very good job. I hope it will be out by the autumn. I would be delighted to hear from those who read On the House ​as feedback…

Hi everyone,

As you probably know, Innocents to the Slaughter​ is in the process of being edited and I'm really looking forward to seeing it in print later this year. It's still possible to make a pledge to it and become eligible for a free copy. If you know of previous sponsors who are unaware of the new book perhaps you would pass on the information that it is due out soon. Many of the readers…

Just to let everyone know we have come up to the half-way mark and thank those who have contributed. Those of you who have promised, the days are ticking by! The book is finished and i hope will be out by the summer of this year. I hope this reaches everyone who contributed last time. I would really like to hear from you - your reviews were very much appreciated.

Regards

Helen

Hi everyone,

Thanks to all who have supported me and those who have promised and not got round to it yet. I'm sure you will!

I think my friends in Yorkshire will really like this next book which is set in beautiful Bingley - before there was any traffic other than horses and carts! I visited Bingley and also the woollen industry museum in Bradford just to ensure authenticity. It is a fascinating…

Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all those who sponsored my last book - On the House​ - and which, I'm happy to say, has been well-reviewed.

Just a little reminder that, if you want to know what happens to the characters in the first of the trilogy, there's no better way of finding out than by sponsoring the second, which is now up for support. I know I have many generous friends who were…

Hello to all those who supported my first book ​On the House, the result of which is that it's now in print and has had some encouraging reviews. Thank you all. Many of you asked me when the next one is coming out and two days ago the project to get Innocents to the Slaughter  into publication​ was launched. I hope the support I received last time is replicated for this novel, which I think you'll…
