A New Contract

Elizabeth Murray 1628-1698

I have some interesting news this week, in that my lovely agent Kate Nash has secured a publishing contract for my novel about the early life of Elizabeth Murray.

Pen and Sword Books specialise in Historical/Military Reference Books but are planning to bring out an Historical Fiction Imprint under the name of Claymore Books with their first titles planned for release in October.

'The Cherry Garden' is scheduled for release in early 2013, but the title may be subject to change.So for those who are interested, do keep stopping by and I'll keep posting as I go. And according to their Facebook page, Prince Charles visited recently, so I am in great company! - This is my favourite portrait of EM.
