… now we’re beyond the wedding I can turn my attention to publishing my next book, a contemporary magical mystery romance called
The Art Of Spirit Capture
It’s all edited, read and re-read and will hit your bookshelves on 17th October. It will be available for pre order as an ebook shortly. Meanwhile I need to sort out the paperback formatting so I’ll probably dip out of blogging for a few days.
Here’s the cover
And here’s the blurb
Jason Hales is at his lowest ebb: his brother is in a coma; his long-term partner has left him;
he’s been sacked; and Christmas is round the corner to remind him how bad his life has become.
After receiving an unexpected call telling him he’s a beneficiary of his Great Aunt Heather’s
estate, he visits the town he vaguely recalls from his childhood, where his great aunt lived.
Wanting to find out more, he’s soon sucked into local politics revolving around his great
uncle’s extraordinary glass ornaments, his ‘Captures’, and their future.
While trying to piece his life back together, he’ll have to confront a number of questions: What
actually are these Captures and what is the mystery of the old wartime huts where his uncle
fashioned them? Why is his surly neighbour so antagonistic? Can he trust anyone, especially
the local doctor Owen Marsh and Charlotte Taylor, once a childhood adversary, but now the
lawyer dealing with the estate? His worries pile up, with his ex in trouble, his flat rendered
uninhabitable and his brother’s condition worsening. Will Christmas bring him any joy?
Set in the Sussex countryside, this is a modern novel with mystery, romance and magic at its
core, as well as a smattering of hope, redemption and good cooking
Some of you kindly offered to host a guest post to be tied into the launch. Now I have that date, perhaps you’d confirm if that works for you still. Either in the comments or via mail on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope you’re all as excited as me…
And thank you all, for reading, for supporting and encouraging my writing. It wouldn’t be half as much fun without you all.
And the wedding…?
Two families intertwined…
