the last of the DI White series: Damage Done is being edited at our publishers: Barking Rain Press and should be available in June. More of that in Tomoorow's views, below. We're very pleased to announce that two of our older books: The Last Free Men and Merlin's Kin, are now being published by a new pubisher - Portals Publishing - with dramatic new cover illustrations by Susan Krupp. They have been newly edited to bring them into line with American grammar - no more ...Wow!" He said but "...Wow! he said; and with Oxford commas which seem to be used only in Oxford, UK and in the USA. Fine examples of our two nations being separated by a common language.

June will mark the end of our DI White series and, as Douglas Adams once said about his Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, it's a trilogy in four parts. However. Our publisher at Barking Rain Press threw us a challenge while this book was in progress. Sheri Gormley gave us a brief scenario which had to involve snow, a cat and an explosion. I'm pleased to report that the items were all linked together in the opening chapter. While DI White will be hanging up his handcuffs, a key character in that final book: Fizzah Hammad, an eastern Mediterranean woman with few scruples of any kind, will be featuring as the main character in the next book.
Adele Abbot, our speculative fantasy author. is working on a sequel to Postponing Armageddon and gave herself an unexpected shock. She wrote the story - subject to polishing - and discovered she had only half a book length in total. She has now brought back to life, a previously deceased character and is building a continuation to the story line.
