The Butcher’s Funeral – The Thief is out today on Amazon.
The Thief is part 6 of the medieval short story serial (approx 5,100 words). In The Thief, a boy struggles to survive in the city, using his wits, charm and skills as a thief. Things go wrong for the boy.
The Butcher’s Funeral is a series of short episodes covering medieval crime, punishment and health. Who killed the butcher and to what ends? Was it his wife, the surgeon or maybe the carniter? Who was his love rival and could it have been him?
The final part, The Trial, will be released late in November or early December 2015. An anthology of the whole series will also be released before the end of the year.
Well this is the fifth blog I’ve written over the years. The first was while I was working as postgraduate in the late 90s; the most successful was kept going for eight years and was for a business I used to run; then there have been a couple of smaller and badly maintained projects. So I’ve no idea how this will go.
It’s my aim, at the moment, to use this blog as a way of updating readers on the latest progress with my writing. I’m also thinking about uploading the odd short fiction story as well. We’ll see how it goes as I’m currently putting more time into writing than ever before.
Currently I have two projects in progress. I’m finishing up ‘The Butcher’s Funeral‘ series of short stories, editing the last two parts of this Medieval story – hopefully there will be an update on this soon. The Butcher’s Funeral will also be published in a single volume. I’m also in the middle of a writing a story on zombies and World War One.
