Cornelius Harker's writing something different at the moment but he says he'll return to The Saga when that's done. He's not the world's faster writer though!

Fans of Jonathan Hill's Maureen novellas might like to know there's another out - Maureen and The Big One. I enjoyed this no end.

Hi, Hollygo. Once I'm finished writing 'Eventide' I shall continue editing 'Sirrenvaag (Part Two)'. As for me not being the world's fastest writer; well, I'm just being... erm, meticulous. Yes... meticulous. That works for me. :)

Hollygo says:
Thanks Cornelius, I'll look forward to Eventide, meticulous is good especially on this forum!! ...and it's good to have a change to keep those artistic juices flowing!! I'll wait with ant-ici-pation.

L@L Ignite, I prefer a slow writer but a good one than a fast writer & but not very good one. That got me curious, I'm going to check this Cornelius Harker.

It's actually amazing, the phenomenal success that Nick Spalding has had through self-publishing on Kindle - selling more than 400, 000 ebooks is an immense achievement and it's no wonder that he's now been taken on by a publisher.

If you like adventure stories The Atholl Expedition (Alpine Dawn) by Alex Roddie has Prince Albert, Queen Victoria and a possibly mythical monstrous stag as part of the cast. A really good read.

Cecilia Peartree has released the latest in the Pitkirtly series:

A Tasteful Crime (Pitkirtly Mysteries) 77p
This is the seventh book in the Pitkirtly series of cosy mysteries, set in a fictitious small town on the coast of Fife.
When the television programme Open Kitchen comes to town, there are various reactions from the people of Pitkirtly. Jemima is glad of the opportunity to show off her baking skills, while Amaryllis looks forward to the mayhem that could result from a 'healthy eating' procession, and Christopher is aghast when he finds his ex-wife working on the project.
But they don't expect murder to be on the menu.

Woohoo, a new David Haynes book just out.
The Undertaker's Cabinet by David Haynes

In the town of Littleoak, Moreton & Sons have been burying the dead for over a century... and Bobby Moreton has had enough.
When Richard Jacobs arrives and makes him an offer for the business, the offer is so good he's tempted. But there's something about Jacobs' killer smile that doesn't feel quite right. In fact it feels wrong, horribly wrong.
There may be another way to save the business... Sell the exquisite antique cabinet that's been waiting in the cellar for another chance to do what it was created for.
Bobby soon realises that's a bad thing, a very bad thing indeed...

6 favourites for the price of one. Well technically 5 as I'd not read any Nigel Bird before, but I think I liked his story the best.

Off the KUF Volume 3: Novellas from the Kindle Users Forum

Off the KUF Volume 3 is an anthology of novellas, guaranteed to appeal to readers of all genres!
This book brings together six novellas into one 125,000-word collection. Each contains narratives of more depth and richness than a short story could handle, while delivering a punchier impact than a full-length novel. No matter what your tastes, there is plenty here to engage your imagination.
Volume 3 is edited by David Wailing and the contributing authors are Cecilia Peartree, Carl Ashmore, Nigel Bird, Jonathan Hill, David Wailing and Jennifer Hanning.

I've been waiting for this one for a long time. And now it's out :)
The third instalment from Ken Magee A Darker Shade of Black

Book three of the stunning Dark Tidings trilogy
When two inept time-travellers and an Internet genius mix up a cocktail of ancient magic and too much Tequila, disaster is inevitable.
To make matters worse, a dark conspiracy which threatens our modern way of life is set in motion when two evil wizards escape from a secure government establishment. Add in a megalomaniac Transylvanian hermit, seven cloned dwarfs and an Irish giant, and you have to ask `who's going to save the world now?'

From the author of the Maureen books comes a story that is so far removed from Maureen that it is in another galaxy.

new book that Amazon won't allow me to mention the name of by Jonathan Hill

Gray - a kindly but weak teacher with a secret he cannot reveal
Hodges - a headmaster who wields a terrifying and brutal power
Keen - a first year boy bullied viciously and mercilessly
Smythe - a ringleader intent on enforcing his fagging rights
Thompson - a prefect struggling just to survive

A new term opens with appalling tragedy, the repercussions of which lead to devastating consequences. The headmaster, who will stop at nothing to cover up the incident, fights for the reputation of Brierley's, while several of the school's inhabitants are left fighting for their lives.

A novel of approximately 73,000 words. Readers should note that the book contains strong language, scenes of a sexual nature and adult themes.

If you love the Verity Long funny whodunnits by Lynda Wilcox you must read Married to Murder (The Verity Long Mysteries). It's clever and witty and well up to standard.
