I have been neglecting this blog recently… because I’ve been scurrying about setting up my own wee publishing empire, Ponies + Horses Books, with my ridiculously talented illustrator/designer friend Tracy Craig. Our first book, The Mostly True Adventures of Jim Craig, came out in November and has already sold in exceedingly pleasing numbers.
Next up is the first in a series of short works of travel writing, wee books, if you will. This one is called ‘Island of Cats’… and it’s by me! February will be a pretty exciting month for me, since ‘Island of Cats’ is just one of two island-related tomes I’m authoring! It comes out mere weeks before my first full-length P+H book, How To Buy a Private Island comes out in paperback and e-book. I spent a couple of years as editor of a fine magazine called Private Islands Magazine and thought it was time to put my extensive knowledge of archipelagos to good use.
Meanwhile, I’m still working away on bringing The Scottish Ambassador to you in book form. Watch this space! xxxa
