It’s Hogmanay! I hope you all had a great Christmas and Satan, I mean, Santa, was good to you!
Thank you all so much for your amazing support in 2019. It’s been a very productive year for me, with two novels – Song of the Centurion and Lucia – being published, along with an unexpected return to medieval Yorkshire in the novella Faces of Darkness. Behind the scenes I also wrote a fair bit for that secret project I was first asked to do about this time last year – I should be able to finally share more on that in a few months!
In the coming year I only have, so far, plans to complete the third book in my Warrior Druid of Britain series. It’s already underway and should be out in the summer, all being well. I expect the Picts and Saxons to make their presence felt once again but I haven’t really planned very far ahead – I like to come up with things as I go along after all.
There’s a small chance I’ll do another Forest Lord book – either a novella or even a full novel – as I’ve been listening to a podcast about an interesting mystery from the middle-ages recently, and it would make a great story, but it’s just an idea and may come to nothing…
The first thing I will be publishing in the new year should be Lucia on Kindle, and as a paperback. I’m very proud of this one and I hope more of you will check it out on Audible (which is the only place you can get it right now as they bought the exclusive rights for the first 6 months). The narrator, Imogen Church, does a superb job so please do give it a go, but if you must have it in “proper” book form it’ll be available in the spring. I think it’s pretty unique in telling a Roman slave’s tale from her own perspective.
Now, I’m off to play my guitar with a beer before the bells – I hope you all have a fantastic 2020, readers, and thank you so much for all your support during 2019!
