Published – The Last Rhinemaiden

I have published my novel: The Last Rhinemaiden.

What’s it about? Here’s the blurb:

You might think that the most sensational events of 1888 were the gruesome murders which took place in Whitechapel.

You’d be wrong.

A young woman leaps from Westminster Bridge at sunrise on the morning the German Kaiser dies. The only witness is Alf Winchester, who is captivated by her death.

By nightfall London is swarming with armed men and foreign spies hunting for him. And for her.

This is the not-a-jack-the-ripper-novel I’ve been talking about for some time. It’s set in London, in 1888. Go have a look. You can sample 20% for free on Smashwords, and use the “Look Inside…” feature on Amazon.

It will be pushed through the Smashwords distribution system to the iBookstore, Nook store, Barnes & Noble, Sony ebooks and Diesel books in the next couple of weeks.

London, 1888: last chapter completed…

I’ve done it.

I’ve finished the last chapter of the not-a-Jack-the-Ripper-novel, tonight, about twenty minutes ago.

It’s been a long time coming.

Since I wrote the first/second draft I’ve added another 20,000 words, sifted in layers over the story like a fine dusting of ash. I was aiming to have it completed by Yuletide, so that’s a small success I can celebrate: I stuck to my plan.

Am I happy with it? Almost. (I defy anyone who’s ever written anything to say they can’t find something to tweak…)

Is it the best I can do at this moment in time, with this level of skill and experience? Yes, I believe so.

More soon. Oh, so much more.
