And here we have the weather at the fag-end of March. Cold, wet, overcast – and bloody snowing, for God’s sake!

So this is what the weather was like two weeks ago, on Mother’s Day. 14th of March we went off to the sea side with views over to Burgh Island. Lovely – especially since the sun was out and it was gorgeous weather.

The New Cover

Friday, March 12th, 2010

This is a short note, folks, just to show what Simon & Schuster are doing with the covers for the new titles.

The Oath

The first title from Simon & Schuster, number 29 in the series, will be called THE OATH, and I reckon that the jacket tells pretty much what the book is going to be like. What do you lot think?

Been a busy week, but worthwhile. I’ve managed to get the basics sorted with Conway Stewart for a pen, to be called the Michael Jecks, oddly enough. It’s going to be a limited edition pen, a “Winston” in Conway Stewart’s Dartmoor resin, a really lovely dark colour, with gold bands and nib. Very attractive. I’ve also agreed some other interesting projects with them, I’ve mostly completed an introduction to a new series, and now I’ve got a picture for the book to be published in May – and I’ve figured out a whole chunk of book 30 too! Which is good because next week I have two days in London, and a third on 24th, when I’ve a bunch of meetings with my new publishers.

A busy time – but fun!

Let me know what you think of the book cover!
