Highland Arms re-released with Ocelot Press

I'm delighted to share the news that I have now re-issued Highland Arms through our new author cooperative, Ocelot Press. If you haven't heard of us before, feel free to discover our authors on the Ocelot Press website.

I have decided to bring Highland Arms into the Ocelot clowder because I feel we have a wonderful network of likeminded writers of quality novels, mainly with focus on historical fiction, mystery and romance, and my upcoming titles will also be released through the coop.

Highland Arms will now also be available in ebook format not only on Amazon, but also on a range of outlets through D2D, including Kobo, Apple and Barnes & Noble. And for a few days only, it will be priced at 99p / 99c! It is still available in paperback through Amazon, but I'm also exploring other options.

So...why not try a gripping historical read with plenty of romance and mystery!

After a hectic few months that saw many tricky editing jobs, French level 3 university studies and dissertation, and various other bits and bobs (yes, bobs too!), I'm finally ready to share my good news:

I have joined an author collective of wonderful writers of – mainly – historical fiction (in various sub-genres) at Ocelot Press! The group is made up of Crooked Cat Books authors past & present. I'm looking forward to working closely with, and supporting, fellow OcelotsNancy Jardine and Vanessa Couchman, who both have already published several novels under the Ocelot banner (find details of their gripping stories set in Scotland and Corsica respectively on theOcelot Press Facebook page) – and those writers due to publish through Ocelot later: Jennifer C Wilson, Nicola Slade, John Jackson, Sue BarnardYvonne Marjot, and Ailsa Abraham.
