Apologies for the long silence. This year has been rather difficult for personal reasons, but the publishing process continues!

First off, the launch of Darkling Park, the new YA fiction title


will be held on Saturday 22nd October from 10:30 am – 12:00 noon at Streatham Cemetery, London SW17 0LT. As the story is set in a graveyard, it should be fun!

Other news is that the Patrician Press list of published titles is now on the Public Library Online, the new e-book library:
