Midsummer Eve at Rookery End publication date

As promised, here’s more news on my collection of three short stories, Midsummer Eve at Rookery End

Publication date will be 31st March 2009 and Midsummer Eve at Rookery End will be available in both e-book and paperback from E-scape Press Ltd.  Their web-site address is www.escapewithabook.com and the site will be going ‘live’ in the next few days.  I’ve had a sneak peak at the web-site and it looks great!

Price for the e-book will be just £2.79 and £4.99 for the paperback.  The e-book can be ordered and downloaded from E-scape in minutes 🙂

The paperback edition is also listed on Amazon UKAmazon.com and The Book Depository, although the price currently shown on Amazon is incorrect and will be updated to £4.99 soon.

Please note, though, that it’s best to order direct from E-scape Press as their delivery will be much quicker.

I’m really excited about the launch of these short stories!  If you enjoyed the excerpt from Siren’s Daughter why not buy Midsummer Eve at Rookery End and find out what happens next? 🙂

Croome Park

I’ve blogged on ForRomanceReaders about my visit to Croome Park today.

You can read about it here, and I have to say I LOVED the grotto – what a perfect place for a romantic assignation!!

Some of the garden temples resembled the Greek temple mentioned in Blue Figured Silk, one of the Midsummer Eve at Rookery End stories.  More news coming on these very soon now 🙂
