Star Wars The Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth

 [Posted 23-Feb-2010]

Well, it'sn all systems go in that galaxy far, far away. My new Star Wars novel 'Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth' is out on bookshelves today. If you're a fan and you decide to buy it, I hope you enjoy!

EBook availability

 [Posted 10-Feb-2010]

As some of you have noticed, not all of my books are available in the Ebook format, and some that are have been made available in one region ie the US but not others, like the UK.

I truly do appreciate how frustrating this is, but right at the moment my hands are totally tied. The whole Ebook thing is still madly in flux, with publishers and distributors coming to grips with how this market will operate. As is often the case, the authors have no part in this side of the business and so we, like every other reader, have no choice but to see how things are going to play out.

All I can tell you for certain is that the situation is being addressed, and when I know where my backlist titles stand with regards to Ebook editions, I will let you know. In the meantime, I hope you can bear with the uncertainty. And, you know, keep on buying the hard copies! *g*

Star Wars The Clone Wars Gambit: Siege

 [Posted 03-Feb-2010]

Well, that puppy's now put to bed. One last thing to do, which is check the typeset pages when they come back to me, and then I can worry about whether you guys are going to like it or not! *g*

I've had so much fun writing this two-parter -- Stealth and Siege. I hope I've done the GFFA justice.
