Space pirates, pirates and more pirates

The third in the Pirates trilogy of novellas is now complete and live at all the usual places. The series centres on the Junker's Moon  Scrap, Salvage and Servicing Company based on the planet Cymbeline:

Pirate Gold - Book 1: Junker's Moon Scrap, Salvage and Servicing Company had never been attacked before but that didn't mean its base of operations was unprepared. Marshall Brion began the day with no idea that within a few hours he would need all the concentrated expertise of three generations of Brions. Space pirates were inbound to the station. They were something to be feared but also to be repelled at all costs.

Revenge - Book 2: Junker's Moon Scrap, Salvage and Servicing Company had a surge in popularity following the capture of notorious space pirate Dirk Knight. What Marshall, proprietor of Junker's Moon had not bargained for was the thirst for revenge and ferocity of Dirk's wife, Vanessa Longtail. But first there was the question of what to do with Knight's ship which contained an arsenal of weapons all of its own.

Trouble Doubled - Book 3: Junker's Moon Scrap, Salvage and Servicing Company is in a state of turmoil and uncertainty, following the grievous wounding of its proprietor, Marshall. He hovers close to death having been stabbed by Vanessa Longtail, the notoriously vengeful wife of space pirate Dirk Knight. Finding she had not succeeded in murdering Marshall, as had been her intention, she returns to finish the job.

The fourth story in the series is being prepared for publication shortly:

Junker's Moon Scrap, Salvage and Servicing Company had the exceedingly dubious honour of being visited by a cult ship, The Garden. The ship was registered as having charitable status and was therefore beyond FBIS jurisdiction. Its owner had stopped short of adding 'Of Eden' to its registered name but that was clearly his intention. Pastor Gripthorne was going to cause trouble with a capital 'T'.

New Paranormal Romance

A few days ago Daphne Coleridge, also known for her cosy mystery stories, published a new romance under a gorgeous new cover:

"When Anthea is commissioned by the mysterious Cyro Smith to paint his portrait, she finds herself quickly overwhelmed and disorientated by his passion. She is further confused by a series of dreams about Cyro which seem to show that his past is more extraordinary than she could have imagined. His talk of gods and myths confuses her still further. 

Surely the idea of a god pursuing his lost love across eternity is just another dream?"

A novella. 

“If she was a single point of light in the sky and I had to search amongst all the myriad of stars to find her, I would do so.”

Ms Coleridge's Pendlehurst stories are also selling well at the moment. The first in the series is 'The Pendlehurst Legacy':

"When Grace’s great uncle dies, he leaves her a derelict house with a hundred rooms, a cryptic note, and a series of small mysteries to solve. With her solicitor, Simon Chivers, seeming less than helpful, Grace sets about searching for a missing ruby necklace, identifying the source of disturbances in the house, and unravelling truth from fiction in the story of her Great Uncle Toby’s life.

A novelette."
