It is with great pleasure (trust me on this), that I announce the release of The Necklace Affair, a brand new 25K-word, 10-chapter novella in the Captain Lacey Regency Mystery series.
This novella has never been published, never been read by anyone outside my family and my critique circle. The first new Lacey story in nearly five years!!
The Necklace Affair is available on Kindle:
and in various formats on Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/64839
(It will eventually be loaded to other vendors via Smashwords--that takes time, but the Smashword files are not encrypted, so they can be read on many devices.)
Chronologically, the story falls between The Sudbury School Murders (May) and A Body in Berkeley Square (out in early July).
I am hard at work on A Death in Norfolk (tentative title, but I think I'll keep it), which will release in September. Lacey will make a trip to his family home--in which he has not set foot in twenty years--and things ensue.
Again, thank you for your support on this venture. It has encouraged me to keep going and revive Captain Lacey and Ashley Gardner. I plan to pen at least three more books after Death in Norfolk (titles and schedule coming soon). And who knows? Possibly more, as the story ideas keep coming. The Captain has a rich world.
Best wishes for a fine summer,
