Wide open spaces, room for thought?
One of the joys of living on the shores of Morecambe Bay is the wide open spaces. There’s this huge expanse of sky that seems to go on for ever at times. Admittedly I live on the other side of the Bay to Jamie, but when I feed sheep on our higher fields (spot height 30 meters) my horizon extends from Blackpool tower to Black Combe and takes in Ingleborough and Penyghent as well.
One thing I love about it is that there’s room here for thinking. I like nothing more than walking through the area, pondering plot details and getting the book I’m working on to fit properly together. I find it really lets you get into the book.
Unfortunately I got too far into the book. So far that it’s been a struggle to come out and talk about the previous book that’s just about to be published.
You see, last year I wrote six novellas, featuring my well loved hero, Benor the Cartographer. Set in a fantasy world with little magic and no elves, I wrote the six as detective stories. The idea is they’d be a collection, not a series and you could read them in any order.
Then when they were written and edited I set it up so they’d be published, one every four months, and got on with writing something new.
And now I’ve just realised the next of these stories is about to be published. Yes, ‘Woman in Love’ is already up on Amazon for pre-order.
To quote the blurb, “Asked to look for a missing husband, Benor finds that the female of the species is indeed more deadly than the male.”
All you have to do is click on the link and order it. A mere 98p, get it now before Amazon runs out of electrons. Rumour has it, they’re not making them any more.
