I can't believe how speedy this is happening. I have nothing but praise for Lethe Press as they've treated me so wonderfully throughout.

First of all – here's the absolutely – ABSOLUTELY – gorgeous cover.


There's everything there – there really is. It's so beautiful I can hardly believe it.

Here's the blurb:

Orphaned Crispin Thorne has been taken as ward by Philip Smallwood, a man he's never met, and is transplanted from his private school to Smallwood s house on an island on the beautiful but coldly remote, Horsey Mere in Norfolk. Upon his arrival, he finds that he's not the only young man given a fresh start. Myles Graham, and Jude Middleton are there before him, and as their benefactor is away, they soon form alliances and friendships, as they speculate on why they ve been given this new life. Who is Philip Smallwood? Why has he given them such a fabulous new life? What secrets does the house hold and what is it that the Doctor seems to know?

Great blurb too (not written by me, I hasten to say) which doesn't go down the route of obvious questions.

And it's already up for pre-order on Amazon (USA).  I will – of course – update you all when it's available on the UK site and in electronic form.

OK – I can shout about it now!  I’ve had the contract, and signed and returned, for MERE MORTALS! 

The lovely, shiny Lethe Press snapped it up earlier this year, and I had the contract this morning which has been duly signed, scanned, emailed, and stuffed into an envelope ready to moulder on my mantlepiece for months. (Only kidding, Lethe)

I’ve been told it will be out “Early 2011” so watch this space.  Now I have to think about WORKING ON IT again. Argh.  I don’t even have a blurb.

It’s a full-sized novel by the way.

But here’s a rough blurb, until I do a proper one:

In Victorian England, life is cheap, and young men with no prospects or protection can vanish off the map without anyone even noticing.

The orphaned Crispin Thorne has been made ward of court to Philip Smallwood, a man he’s never met, whose home is the mysterious “Bittern’s Reach” in the depths of the Norfolk Broads, on Horsey Mere. There he meets two other young men, Jude and Myles, and he soon finds that not only does he have more in common with them than he ever would have imagined, but it is that shared trait puts them all in more danger than they could possibly foresee.

I’m hugely excited about this novel, and I hope you will like it.
