Ok, first off, apologies for posting here so infrequently. It's not down to laziness on my part (well, ok, maybe a bit) but because I've been hard at work on my next trilogy, The Wolf of the North. I wanted to have at least a first draft of all three books completed before I move forward with the first one, and I'm almost at that point now, so hopefully not too much longer to wait! It's really hard to believe that over a year has passed since I released The First Blade of Ostia. Time really flies when you spend most of your day in a made up world!
By way of teaser, The Wolf of the North is set in the Middle Sea world, but with new characters and new locations that I haven't had the chance to explore before. It's also allowed me to look at the world from a different cultural perspective, and as small a thing as that might sound, it's been a lot of fun to take these ideas and play around with them from a different viewpoint. It's the story of a young man from the Barbarian North who, from an inauspicious start, becomes a legend in his own time.
Next year will be all about The Wolf of the North, but the fact that I've got a lot of the hard work done on it already means I'll have a little time for another character who's been simmering away in the back of my mind for quite a long time now!
That's about all I've got for now, so I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas! Thanks again for your support and interest in my work!
