Hi all! I know you’ve not heard from me for yonks, but that’s because I’ve been busting a gut to rewrite The Unforgiven Dead. And I’m pleased to announce it’s now done! Finished! Over! Well… not quite. In fact, there’s still a way to go - feedback to take on board, tweaks and revisions to be made, and many, many more cappuccinos to imbibe before the book is ready for your delectation. Early 2020 is the likely publication date. I know, seems ages away, but I turn 40 tomorrow and I’m not sure where the last ten years have gone - lost down the side of the sofa, like loose change perhaps? Anyhoo… it won’t be long until The Unforgiven Dead is unleased on the world (cue evil laugh). I’d like to thank everyone who has supported the project thus far. You are literally helping my literary dream become reality. (Try saying that after a few beers! Slainte!)
Happy Canada Day, everyone. 2019 is half over, and there’ve been a number of developments since my last update.
First of all, I’m pleased to report that A Gentleman’s Murder won the silver for Mystery in the 2018 Foreword Indies. This makes a neat little hat trick for Inkshares, with Jacqui Castle’s The Seclusion and Juliet McDaniel’s Mr. and Mrs. American Pie also winning silver in their respective categories.
A German edition of A Gentleman’s Murder is also in the works and set to come out in December this year.
Some long-overdue paperwork was finally completed with respect to the option for the TV rights, so I think I can more comfortably say now that that’s in the works, too.
The most significant update I have to share, however, is that I have since relocated from Montreal to Calgary, a move that takes me to the other side of the continent. I’m writing this from what should be my study for the foreseeable future, once the movers deliver all my stuff.
It’s a new life. Perhaps there will be Bovril.
Until next time!
