Book 11 has begun - my magnum 'opeless

Red Herring front Shamus Sept 2023.jpg

2024 marks the 10th anniversary of my self-publishing adventures. I had hoped to mark this milestone by finishing and publishing my 11th title.


Whether I do get it finished or not - only time will tell. What I CAN say, for certain for sure, is that I have finally made a start on it. It's going to be a full-length comical (I use the term advisedly) crime caper, and it's something that I consider to be my magnum 'opeless. Watch this space for updates as and when (or should that be if and when) I make any significant progress....


When I say I have made a start, I have created the front cover, written the back-cover blurb and have - subject to a tiny bit of tweaking or two - completed the first chapter. I've not quite sorted the finer points of the plot yet, but I do know that I'm going to have a LOT of fun with this one....

Working wordsmith, pitiful punslinger, pretend prestidigitator, hapless (hopeless?) hockeyologist, awfully alliterative author
