The First Blade of Ostia

Well, that’s the title reveal for my next book taken care of! Set about 12 years before The Tattered Banner, The First Blade of Ostia is a stand alone novel set in the highly competitive world of Ostenheim’s professional duelling circuit. Those who have read the Society of the Sword trilogy will recognise a few of the characters involved, who are joined by a few new—and I hope—interesting individuals. I hate committing to firm release dates before I have everything ready to go, but all things being well, it will be available before Christmas!

Stay tuned for the back cover copy, which I’ll post here in the next few days. Cover reveal and excerpts will hopefully follow shortly afterward!

In other news, I was delighted to see that Maureen O’Hara, the female lead in many of my favourite swashbuckling movies (The Black Swan, The Spanish Main, Against All Flags—anyone remember this series of posts?) has finally been awarded an Oscar!

I hope everyone is well!
