At Lobster & Canary, I almost never talk about my own work but I ask your indulgence at this tiding: yesterday ChiZine Publications (CZP) published in paperback and in all major digital formats my second novel The Indigo Pheasant, the sequel to 2009's The Choir Boats. (CZP brought out a limited-edition hard cover in July). Both novels are available world-wide and through all major sales channels. My wife, the artist Deborah Mills, did the woodcarving that forms the basis for the cover design, and she did all the interior illustrations.
You can take a look at free preview chapters of both novels at the CZP site:
The Choir Boats (vol. 1) - preview chapters
The Indigo Pheasant (vol. 2) - preview chapters.
