Since I completed The Bear of Britain I’ve been working on a new Tuck/Little John/Will adventure. Set, as is now my tradition for these, in winter, the novella has a loose connection to yuletide but this time around there’s even a Christmas ghost! Or is it something even more sinister…?
The title, if you haven’t already noticed, is The House in the Marsh and I asked my cover designers to come up with some artwork that wasn’t TOO similar to the cover for Faces of Darkness. I think they did a great job! It’s not the most striking of covers, there’s practically nothing going on, but that’s kinda the point. I think the title and the stark image fire the imagination, and hopefully readers will buy the book to find out what happens.
I don’t want to give away too much, but I can exclusively reveal there will be some people getting knocked about by Little John, doors being kicked down, Tuck enjoying some Xmas fayre, Will taking the piss, and, well, that ruined old house with its ghost…
I’m still on track to have this published and available to buy before Christmas, on Kindle at least, so stay tuned for the pre-order! Paperback will be available at some point, again, hopefully in time for Xmas day!
If you didn’t know, this is the latest in a series of stories starring Tuck, John and Will. Click the titles to them out:
