Kindred Spirits: York – One week to go!

With one week to go before the release of Kindred Spirits: York, have you got your copy?

Jennifer C. Wilson


I can’t believe it! One week until Kindred Spirits: York hit the electronic shelves… Have you already pre-ordered your copy? If not, there’s still time, and still time too, to get involved in the online launch, planned for the afternoon and evening of the 31st January 2019.

We will have virtual food, drink, games and (real) prizes for you to win, and I cannot wait. The first time I had an online launch, I didn’t have a clue what I was doing. The fact that I thought it was fine to have the online launch at the same time as meeting friends to celebrate the launch in a pub demonstrates that. A pub without wi-fi too!

A New Book

Exciting news!

An' de walls came tumblin' down

I promised a post from Val Penny today. Unfortunately, some bad news meant that Val was unable to write the post. Unfortunately, you’ll have to put up with a post from me, instead. Fortunately, some good and very exciting news has given me the impetus for this post. And here is that news:

Review of Tom Halford’s Deli Meat
