It has been two months since the launch of THE SERPENT SWORD, and it is doing very well. Thanks to everyone who has bought it already, and especially those who have taken a few minutes to leave a review - it makes all the difference to getting prospective readers to take a chance on a debut novelist.
A lot of my free time in these two months has been spent on promotions, interviews, blog posts, and everything that goes with trying to get a book seen by as many people as possible in this hyper-crowded marketplace. Thanks too to all bloggers, authors, reviewers and readers who have shared, retweeted and helped to spread the word.
But that is not all I've been up to. Book 2 of the Bernicia Chronicles, THE CROSS AND THE CURSE, is out with publishers via my agent. I'm still waiting on lots of responses, so watch this space.
And on top of promoting and marketing books 1 and 2, I've also been writing book 3. Until now, it was simply referred to as that: book 3 of the Bernicia Chronicles. But now, with 45,000 words of the first draft written and a detailed synopsis approved by my agent, I think the time is right to announce its title.
So, without further ado, here it is. Book 3 of the Bernicia Chronicles will be called:
BLOOD AND BLADE
I will give details of the story over the coming months, so keep an eye on this blog. Until then, keep reading and enjoying life to the full.
