Hello readers and thank you for your patience; I know it’s been a while.

Much has gone on since I last broadcast. First off; you ought to know (if you don’t already) that The Grenshall Manor Chronicles, Book 1 has a new title. Misery’s Tear is no more. All hail the coming Oblivion Storm.

Check out all the awesome tweaks, folks!

Now, with the tale containing a bunch of things which go bump in the night (bonus prize for anyone who tells me the origin of that phrase), undead of various flavours and other supernatural elements, I was kind of looking forward to getting something out in time for All Hallow’s Eve. However, everyone has been working their literary butts off in order to get everything suitably polished – but between one thing and other, we have collectively agreed to push back the release in order to get the version we want – and that everyone who has been of so much help and support to me up to now deserves. To that end, we’re now looking at December, but rest assured, I will keep everyone posted at every turn.

So, thank you for your continued patience. I plan to have nothing but good news for you all from now until release. Amongst other things such as guest posts and the like, I’m planning to give you all a few little bits and pieces as teasers and treats to keep you entertained. Why, I have several coming up in this post alone!

First of all then, I have to link you to the wonderful new Xchyler Publishing website. Look for yourself at the shiny. There is an updated logo, information on other releases, that sort of thing.

Second: I really should introduce you to the Forged In Flame anthology.

How cool is this?

I’ve been watching this project develop alongside my own since I got on board with my own. And it looks shiny. I am very excited to say I shall be expecting a copy shortly – and also excited to announce that you’ll be hearing from a Forger on this very site relatively soon! From those who didn’t guess from the picture, I can sum the anthology theme up with one word: dragons! There’s a release party for it on Facebook, October 31, with giveaways and the like here. Get on board!

Now back to me, as the Old Spice Man would say. A while back, I posted up the back cover blurb as was. With a change in cover also came a change in blurb, so I should share that here too. I will leave you all with that – and ask that you watch this space in the coming weeks!  Enjoy:

Over a century past, a wily young pauper wins the hearts of a childless couple of ancient nobility, and a place in one of the most prestigious families in London. The sole heir to the Grenshall family legacy, Iris ‘Tally’ Grenshall fights to protect her family from the machinations of an evil woman, but discovers her adversary presents a threat much greater than she ever imagined…

The victim of a brutal attack, Rose remembers one thing: a long-dead woman giving her an impossible task. She knows only the price of failure as she sets out to retrieve a deadly talisman, with the aid of new friends and powers over the living and the dead. As the body count rises, Rose’s quest grows desperate—with London itself in jeopardy.

Rose and Tally share fates intertwined. Rose must discover how before the secrets of the past destroy her, her friends, and all of London.

Catch you all soon.
