From main page May 2018
I have revised/updated some of my books and changed the titles and/or covers of them. Unfortunately, this has confused Amazon who cannot apparently withdraw the old versions from their listings. I just thought that you should know!
The changes are:
1.When the time is ripe is now called
Caistor Parsons: The Gingerbread Man.
The plot is unchanged.
2. Bastards & Baronets is now called:
The Little Tin Box
The plot is unchanged, however, this book is based on my first novel Consequences! however, the ending is completely different.
3. Stealing Tomorrow's Thunder
Only the cover of this book has been changed
Update 16th May 2017
I think it is time I explained what I have been doing with my books before my reader gets totally confused!
My first novel, Consequences, was written over 16 years ago. The original, rather ambitious, story spanned 150 years. I rewrote it and gave it a completely different ending so that it is now faster paced and only spans three years. I also gave it a new title; Bastards and Baronets. However, I was unhappy with the title and the cover, and so I have now renamed the book The Little Tin Box. This will be available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and bookstores by the end of May (2017).
Incidentally, Consequences is out of print although I believe there is one copy still available on Amazon for $500!!! I’m flattered!
My second novel was set in 16th century England with the title When the Time is Ripe. I have performed some minor editing in the second edition and given it a new cover and name: Caistor Parsons – The Gingerbread Man.
Likewise, Stealing Tomorrow’s Thunder has been given a similar facelift.
