I thought I’d offer you a quick update on what I’m up to.
First, and foremost, I am on my first vacation away from home since the start of the first Covid lockdown. I am writing this by Lake Garda in northern Italy. I mention this just to explain why I am so chilled out as I type.
The next item on my agenda was to let you know I am working hard to complete the second Jake Adkins novel, Habeas Corpus, which will be out before the end of the year. Things are going well for me, even if it is not a speedy journey, but this time round, Jake is accused of murdering a woman the cops find in his bathroom. And he has no idea how she got there.
My third news item is that I hope to launch my first audiobook in September. It will be the audio version of The Bowery Slugger and I will give you more details nearer the launch date. If you’re interested in getting a copy, do let me know and I’ll make sure to keep you firmly in the loop.
The final item is to let you know that I intend to launch a subscription service where there will be free and paid-for facilities, such as an area to talk all things crime, reading etc, as well as early opportunities to access book content before novels get officially published. Again, a lot more info when I’m in a position to lay out my stall. The provision will be available before the end of the year.
I hope you are all well and that the many problems of the world aren’t weighing too heavily on your shoulders.
