Happy New Year!
After a wonderful seasonal break with family, I guess it's time to do a wrap of 2015, my first complete year of writing full time. It was enhanced for me by the release of The Chase and The Code of Love by Endeavour Press, who also published The Winter Prince and the new novel in my Terror and Awe trilogy, Farewell, Cavaliers: see the book here.
I was also honoured to have my historical crime novel, Murder at Cirey, longlisted not only by the UK's Historical Novel Society for their 2015 Indie Award, but also by the American Library in Paris, where it was exhibited at the 2015 prize-giving in October last year.
And what of 2016? It heralds the publication by Endeavour Press of the final work in the Terror & Awe trilogy, The King's Shadow. I'm also completing the next Victor Constant historical mystery, Death in Champagne.
Meanwhile I'm returning as Free Literary Mentor to show you a distinctive first work by Peat Simons. For some New Year reading, take a look at the extract below and leave Peat some feedback in the Facebook column provided.
