2012 sees the 5th anniversary of my first book’s publication. While I continue to work on my third novel with glacial speed, here’s a very special freebie as a small “thank you” for your patience:

You can now download “Lieutenant Samuel Blackwood (deceased)” for free, legal and as often as you want!

Download! Read! Share!Spread it all over the internet! As long as you’re not trying to sell it, we’re fine. Not that I’d object if you should decide to buy the print version, of course…

“LIEUTENANT SAMUEL BLACKWOOD (deceased)”
A Georgian Royal Navy Ghost Story

Author: Emma Collingwood
Illustrations: Amandine de Villeneuve
Editors: Timothy T. Tarbottom (Esq.), Alex Beecroft
Genre: original Age of Sail fiction, supernatural themes, adventure, m/m romance
Rating: PG-13

HMS Privet has the reputation of being a cursed ship: every first lieutenant serving aboard her dies gruesomely. Lieutenant Daniel Leigh is determined to solve the mystery and volunteers for the place himself, putting his life in desperate danger. Little does he suspect that he will fall in love with the captain, John Meadows, and end up fighting not only for his own life but for the soul of his lover too.

A Georgian ghost story featuring a cursed ship, a vengeful ghost, a haunted captain and a very daring lieutenant.

“MANCO or THE FINANCIAL CRISIS AS EXPLAINED BY
SEBASTIAN QUINN, PURSER”

Author: Emma Collingwood
Editor: Timothy T. Tarbottom (Esq.)
Genre: original Age of Sail fiction, satire
Rating: G
Disclaimer: it’s mine, all mine!

The purser dipped the tip of his quill in the inkwell. “I’ll do what every good accountant does, Sir: as the numbers refuse to be in accordance with the books, I’ll bring the books in accordance with the numbers.”

As you can see, Miss Collingwood has a new website as well:

http://www.emmacollingwood.co.uk

emmacollingwood.com will be retired.

Why the move?

As the US government insists that all .com websites are under its jurisdiction, even if no content is stored on US servers, I’m having my own little Morpeth tea party here. Down with that sort of thing!
