Dickensian rabble in Hampstead.

The following article appeared in this week's Ham & High. (For those of you who don't know it, the Ham & High is the local paper for, uh, where was it now? - ah yes, Hampstead and Highgate. It has a pretty good books page, presumably because so many authors live in Hampstead and Highgate.)



That's Frank Tallis that is. All I can say, having met Frank, is that it must have been a very tall photographer.

The week's other big news (if you happen to be me) is that my new book, A Vengeful Longing, now seems to be in the shops. It was in my local bookshop, Prospero's, anyhow.

It was actually the first time I have held the finished product in my hands. It looked pretty good. There's embossed lettering again.

Hmmm. Wonder what happened to my author copies? Weird seeing your book for the first time in a bookshop.

It seems to be available to buy on amazon now too. Gone from pre-ordering to add to basket. (Hint hint.)

I imagine!

Remind me when when can expect it in the US...?

Hi David, AVL is out in the States in June, I believe.
