What wonderful news, Sealpuppy - I can quite understand why you're so chuffed. Will be pre-ordering my copy as soon as it's possible to do so.

I'm as chuffed as a very chuffed thing! Just signed the contract for Book No9 which is to be called The Convalescent Corpse. :D
It's been ongoing for three years or so and I once asked CBBers for suggestions about books written during WW1 - the response was instant and generous, of course! And very helpful.
This is officially a very cosy historical mystery, set in 1918 and the strapline is: A story of family, rationing, and inconvenient corpses. However, I pitched it to the publisher just as a cosy mystery because I'm pretty certain they've never heard of GO anyway. I mentioned that beta readers have likened it to I Capture the Castle, and the best comment of all: As though the March sisters took up detecting!
Did the trick - ebook around Christmas/New Year, paperback shortly after.

This is a sneak preview of the blurb, because the book has lots of GO tropes although, as I said, it's masquerading as a perfecly 'normal' mystery! It’s 1918 and the War has brought loss, grief and rationing to the three Fyttleton sisters. Helped by their grandmother (a failed society belle and expert poacher) and hindered by a difficult mother (an author and armchair suffragette) – plus an unruly chicken-stealing dog and a house full of paying-guests – they now have to deal with the worrying news that their late and unlamented father may not be dead after all. There’s also a death that might be suspicious, and on top of that there’s the body in the ha-ha…


Congratulations! Looking forward to reading it :)
