It has been a hot weekend here in Exeter, UK, and getting hotter today and tomorrow. Although not as sweltering as other parts of the UK, with temperatures expected to break the 40 degree barrier in some parts of the country, it’s still more than we’re used to.

I am fortunate that my flat stays cool in the heat, which is why I am taking the oppotrtunity to stay in for the next two days, and concentrate on my writing. I did get out yesterday to enjoy some live jazz on the Exeter Quay (see pic), but staying in today and tomorrow seems a sensible option!

First task is to finish up-loading my books to platforms that make them available to physical bookstores, so they can be ordered into any store on request. I’ll update when this is complete.

I am also planning out the next exciting Mary Fox adventure, after introducing her character in The Broken Sword. To be called The Tudor Prince, it will feature Mary being asked to impersonate a young prince, in return for an enticing sum of money. That’s not why she takes on the challenge, of course; she’s much more motivated by the thought of adventure and danger! I’ll update on the progress of this book over the next few months. In the meantime, if you’ve not read The Broken Sword, click the pic to download, or read the opening chapter here.
