It is tricky—to say the least—to know whether this year we should wish each other a “Happy Christmas” or just mutter something like: “Yeah, just do your best, take care and stay healthy till this shit is over.”
However, one thing that hasn’t changed for me is the sense of gratitude when someone buys one of my books or an Amazon Prime member reads some pages. As an avid reader, I am only too aware how many great books there are, so anyone who comes across my work, takes a look at the cover and blurb, and decides to give it a go, has my thanks in abundance. The attention this year’s release received really took me by surprise. The Battle for Europe did much better than I expected, and then I considered perhaps that was because readers saw a trilogy and thought the three novels were a complete story. If that was you, my apologies. The Repulse Chronicles will run to at least six and possibly seven novels. I’m not sure yet. Sorry, that happens. I could write tens of novels set in that story universe, but, hey, I want to keep them entertaining so hopefully only the best parts will get through to publication.
Anyhow, happy Christmas. Thanks for reading. Be safe. Wear a mask. Keep distance. Stay heathy. I’m going to publish the fourth part of The Repulse Chronicles next year, and I really want you to be around to read and hopefully enjoy it. I’ll be back at the end of the year with a very special guest on this blog. In the meantime, here are a few pictures from our traditional Wigilia this evening.
