My Next Book
I responded to a question in the comments stream a few posts back, explaining when my next book — #3 in the Bellaire Gardens series — would be out, but some readers missed it, so I’m explaining again.
I heard from my agent that it would be January 2024.
I’m very sorry about the long wait. It’s partly my fault — I had some nasty health issues last year, and that plus moving house slowed me down.
Also it seems that traditional publishers have been having a lot of issues with scheduling printers and order fulfillment, etc.; all of which require more lead time in the production process.

In the meantime I hope to self-publish a novella that I’ve had waiting in the wings for several years. I just need to polish it up and reduce the word count to 30,ooo words. Stay tuned.
