A Toast to The Duke

Here's to The Duke!

Here’s to The Duke!

Cheers! Well, I finally made my deadline. The Duke’s Shadow was published on Saturday 1st March  *phew*! Now available in Paperback and Kindle format from Amazon.

I was also featured in an author interview on Maureen Vincent-Northam’s blog, The Writers Checklist and a Q and A session over at Dianne Ascroft (Dianne is a member of my writing group, Writers Abroad).

So what now? Well I’m trying hard to get back into other projects which have been left on the sidelines for the past few weeks namely the Penny and George series (The Good {Expat} Life) and Wolf Moon (a fantasy novel). And of course, I shall have to keep marketing The Duke… why not pop over to Amazon now and order your copy?
