Hear , hear!!
And isn't it about time that the prices for e-books came right down too?

You'll be glad (I hope) to see that the first thirteen of the Templar titles are now available as ebooks as well as the later titles. Hopefully you'll soon be able to get them all.

You can already buy many books a great deal cheaper - from zero to 1.99. But if you want all books to be cheap or free, you have to get used to always having bad quality books. Good books come from people having the time to sit and write; they need editors, copy editors, proof readers, designers and artists. Without all the people involved, you get badly spelled, badly edited, badly produced writing. It's your choice. Writers need an income as much as anyone else. Sadly many writers are giving up now, because it's nearly impossible to earn the national minimum wage from writing. A book of 120,000 words costs (looking at mine) £5.99 on Kindle. For that you will have over a day's reading. For most people it's about three days. How much cheaper than £2.00 a day do you expect your entertainment to cost you? That's not rhetorical, I'm serious. How much do you expect to pay for about ten hours of diversion? It's already about one quarter the price you'd pay for a film, after all (a film lasts about 2 hours for anything up to £12, I guess?). Or is it only that authors aren't worth paying in your view? Don't forget, authors don't take home what you pay. Amazon takes their cut, agents take theirs. The author gets about a quarter of the net receipts before tax etc.

At last, the new Templar book is out. As I collect the paperbacks, when can we expect it in that form?

The new book, Templar's Acre, will be available as a Trade Paperback from 6th June, but for the smaller mass-market size you will have to wait until the New Year, I'm afraid.

I like the books of the Shardlake series by C J Sansom.They are set in the reign of Henry the 8th and mix fact with an historical crime fiction theme.I think the Templar series by Michael Jecks seems to have the same type of theme,but i have never read any of his books and if i decide to start reading the series I would like to read the books in the order they should be read so that they follow on naturally.Any advice would be gratefully received.

I like the Shardlake books too But the Templar series is even better. I would certainly read them in the right order as the series follows the lives of its characters chronologically.

Thanks for that! High praise - I'm really grateful.
