JUST PUBLISHED! No 17 RAFFERTY AND LLEWELLYN SERIES
A nine-months pregnant wife, a murder victim found down a trench in an archaeological dig, minus his fingers, and very limited time, meant that Rafferty wasn’t a happy bunny. Superintendent Bradley, media darling and determined to stay that way, only added to Rafferty’s stress.
They discovered that their murder victim was small-time crook and drug dealer, Joey Briggs. He had vanished from Spain, where he worked for Charlie Carver, a Mr Big of Spain’s Costa del Crime. But Rafferty’s visit to Spain was cut short when to Abra went into labour. And despite his promises that he’d be there at his child’s birth, wouldn’t you know the French air traffic controllers had staged their usual summer strike.
Superintendent Bradley demanded he get Charlie Carver who’d be a big feather in his cap from the brass. But Rafferty was convinced Carver wasn’t the murderer this time, whatever else he might be guilty of. Becoming a daddy was a big thing for him, in more ways than one. Because it led him to the true murderer, with a motive as old as time.

It’s not quite finished yet, but it’s getting there. I’m using the services of Fausga (www.fausga.com) as my designer, though I suggested the spilt mug of tea and the wording on the mug. It seemed appropriate as my DI Joe Rafferty is always swilling the stuff.
I love the sliding elements at top and bottom. In theory, I’m supposed to be able to update them any time I want myself. Hmm. We’ll see how that goes! I did take a look at the area where I make the changes so that I could put up All the Lonely People, my latest digital release, but I backed away sharpish! I think I’ll need to edge very slowly into that, maybe with a bit of hand-holding from my designer. Terrified, if I make a hash of it, that I’ll muck up the whole shebang.
This is now officially a self-hosted website, via Hostgator. If I’ve understood things correctly (big if), I should be able to do a lot more with this site than I could when it was hosted as a freebie by WordPress. But don’t expect miracles overnight. It really will be a case of making haste slowly.
I’ve today reduced the price of my biographical historical, Reluctant Queen, by $1 / 77p (though, as usual, amazon has altered the price upwards! Why do they do that?!). It’s meant to be $4.99, down from $5.99, but on the book page it’s showing as priced at $5.14 / £3.09. wish I knew how to persuade them to leave my prices alone (unless they decide to lower them and bear the price hit themselves!).
Any opinions on the two covers?
I was interested in trying out the green and white Tudor colours on the cover. I’m pretty pleased with the effect.
Reluctant Queen is currently on Amazon UK’s Biographical Historical Novels Best Seller list at #29.
