To celebrate the fact that I’m VASTLY improved from my breakthrough case of COVID, I decided to say thank you to my guardian angel by offering each of my Emissary books for the heavenly price of a mere $.99 apiece. (If you download all three books, you’ll save $3.00.) …

It seems so long ago that Amazon closed down Createspace, and transferred all our paperbacks to KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing). If, like me, you didn’t bother to transfer your paperback files yourself, but just left Amazon to do it for you, I would suggest, if you haven’t done so, that you order up a copy […]

Just a quick post as I’m racing towards the end of the big bang climax of The Five Kingdoms book #4, and I’ve started wrapping up the epilogue at the same time. So nervous about what people will say about how I’ve handled it, but this month was a confidence booster in terms of sales. […]

This weekend was possibly the last blast of summer, and I felt I deserved a weekend off to enjoy it, so I finally managed to go to an event I’ve been trying to visit for many years, but never quite found the time: Blair International Horse Trials. One of the premier equine events in Scotland, […]

I am still hard at work on the final book in this Five Kingdom’s cycle – THE PRINCE’S HEIR – currently working out the exact sequence of events in the huge climax this 4 book sequence has been leading up to. I’m also putting a few sample chapters together for my equestrian publisher for their […]

In the midst of all the craziness going on around here: the building work, finishing up the climax of The Five Kingdom’s series, writing the outline for my commissioned equestrian book, getting annual accounts done super early to see if I am eligible for the government’s final COVID pay out, checking over the proofs for […]

To be fair, we brought it upon ourselves. The farmhouse is Victorian, built with no storage anywhere inside as in those days they liked to have everything on display. At some point in the past, someone built a little utility room onto the side of the house, which helped a bit, but not enough. It […]

I have good news, although it will impact on my blogging for a while, I’m afraid. I was contacted last week by the commissioning editor of Crowood Press, current owners of the J.A. Allen imprint that publishes my equestrian books. She has come up with an idea for a new series of short(ish) books, ‘100 […]
