I am so happy to be at home for the holidays - and I have never known it to be so warm on Christmas Day here on the mountain - about 12 degrees C right now at 10:20 am - awesome.
Last night we published the box set edition of The Tales of the Unexpected - series one. All 6 stories can now be enjoyed in one volume - click here
News also of a brand new series - I am guessing this will turn into a series - a steampunk-style series of madcap, romantic adventures featuring the indomitable Captain Du Bon Le Phare - a name inspired by the leading brand of harissa paste sold here in France - I have no idea where these ideas come from, I just write them down. I was struggling with my WIP projects, just unable to focus until yesterday morning when I went to the kitchen and saw the paste on the shelf - the packaging is very distinctive - and the name jumped out at me - and the story was born - and I have been writing nothing else since.
I accept it as my muse's Christmas present to me - Thank you, Muse.
I am also absolutely thrilled to announce that the first part of The Great Dane Saga - The Life and Times of Dane Danois - which is titled Too Much Too Little Too Late - is in the final stages of the editing process/cover re-design, and due out very soon - the title has been absent from the shelf - as has the whole series - since August 2014. The series is going to start re-appearing during the course of the first half of 2016.
One story remains to be re-edited and put back out after an absence of nearly 18 months - Grand Affair - but at 500 pages - no mean feat - we are working on it.
Hoping that you have the perfect Christmas.
