My book: third teaser posted, and finally some information!

The Captain And His Lieutenant – modern London

When two worlds collide…

There have been some questions, and I have some answers!

“The Purser, The Surgeon, The Captain And His Lieutenant”

will be published in autumn. An earlier release had been planned, as you know, but there has been some delay in the editing, a problem I’m currently trying to solve. I’ll keep you posted!

The price for the book will be between $ 12 and $ 15. I’ll try to keep the price as low as possible, but a self-published book will never come as cheap as one that has been printed a gazillion of times by a big publishing house. It’s just not possible to do this for $ 9.99, sorry! But remember, there will be amazing illustrations by . That’s like chocolate cookies to go with the book!

You won’t have to wait till autumn to read a book of mine, though. There will be another, smaller publication this summer:

LT. SAMUEL BLACKWOOD

More details to follow very soon. All I can tell you so far is that it will be a ghost story set in the 18th century on a ship of the Royal Navy, featuring once again the formidable Lt. Barnett. There will be a love story as well to go with it (of course!) and has contributed the most awesome illustrations ever!

I’m very excited about that project, and net sales of the first week will be donated to a newly founded animal shelter in Serbia.

Both “The Purser, The Surgeon, The Captain And His Lieutenant” and “Lt. Samuel Blackwood” will be published by

“Penny, Dreadful & Tarbottom”
(do I get extra points for that name?)

Mrs. Emma Collingwood’s Website will finally get more content this week; the puzzled looking midshipman on the welcome page is already packing his sea chest… 😉

In other words: huzzah! 🙂
