Bookpick: Seven Selections for Santa’s Sack

Bookpick: Seven Selections for Santa’s Sack

by BigJules

I’m a bit of a bah humbug creature when it comes to the commercialisation of Christmas – but there’s one thing that I fervently believe: a book is a present that, if well chosen for the recipient, will give hours of pleasure and be a lasting reminder in itself of someone putting thought, not just money, into a Yuletide gift. So do consider adding some of these fine books – all with a maritime theme – to your gift-buying list. Hopefully, there’s something for everyone in this somewhat eclectic selection.

Four More Kydds!

Four More Kydds!

by BigJules

I’m delighted to have signed a contract with Hodder & Stoughton for four more Kydd titles. To the Eastern Seas, the first of these, will be published in October next year in hardback, ebook and audio download. Thereafter, another Kydd tale will be launched approximately every nine months. This will bring the total to 25, but rest assured, I have plans for further adventures for Kydd, Renzi and all the doughty crew after that!
