The Boy in Winter's Grasp
Available now  - click here

It is Christmas 1914. As Europe descends further into the Great War, Christopher Flyte is sent home in disgrace from his school. He returns to the sleepy English village of Alton. It is there that he meets the mysterious traveller, Bailey - a master storyteller who fills the boy's head with stories of King Arthur's time. The more Christopher hears, the more he suspects that Bailey's stories are more than just simple myths.

Soon, Christoper is a pawn in a game that has been playing out for centuries....

One Woman Cottage: A blog suggestion

Posted on Mar 20, 2014 by John Scotcher
As well as the reviews I do occasionally on this site, I thought it might be fun to introduce you to some fellow bloggers in some 'mini-posts'.  This will give you a sense of the things I read when I am procrastinating.  So to start, ladies and gentlemen; One Woman Cottage.

One Woman Cottage is a friend of mine, and though this post will be released in a few days, I am actually writing it on her birthday.  Couple that with the fact that she is almost unfeasibly pretty to me, I had better write something nice or risk upsetting someone I really don't want to upset.  Fortunately this is going to be easy.  

You'll find the blog here. It's fairly new - she's only been writing it for just over a month, and it's fairly raw - One Woman Cottage is a new mum and has to snatch her blogging time in between a host of other more pressing matters that I cannot even begin to imagine.  It's also extremely funny.  

One woman cottage, whom I have gotten to know a little better through the blog, does not appear to have a well developed 'off' switch.  There is very little that I imagine she would find an inappropriate subject and she combines that with a great and self depreciating sense of humour.  

This is, as I said, a mini-post and I don't want to spoil the blog by endlessly telling you about here.  So, next time you are sitting down with 20 minutes to spare, pour a glass of wine (this is definitely a blog to drink wine with)and catch up on her adventures thus far.

Last year I wrote a blog article about the remote places I write in.  As I said there, I really struggle to write at home, mainly because the office at home is for my business rather than my writing career.  I really struggle not to check emails, surf the web and do the sorts of things I do when I am wearing my web developer hat.  Hence, I like to rent a cottage in the middle of no-where, ideally without phone reception or broadband access, and work there.  ..

I’m not usually a fan of crime fiction.  Or at least it’s not my ‘go to’ choice when deciding what I am going to read.  Apart from a few Inspector Morse novels when I was younger and the inevitable John Grisham thriller (is that even crime?) I haven’t felt the urge to read them.  I also tend to shy away from crime TV unless it has something else that really grabs me (a period piece, Oxford, that sort of thing).  So I approached Penny Grubb’s ‘Like False Money’ with just a little trepidation. ..
