Sherlock Holmes and the Curse of Neb-Heka-Ra – Kickstarter

4 Sep

Kickstarter campaigns are a great way to get a new book out there and visible.

I have just launched (with a lot of help from MX Publishing’s Steve Emecz), the Kickstarter for Sherlock Holmes and the Curse of Neb-Heka-Ra. The blurb for the book is as follows:

“I am Neb-Heka-Ra… I declaim now that my curse shall fall upon he who disturbs my rest. I call upon the Gods to witness and avenge such impiety…”

A trio of bizarre deaths, starting with that of a renowned surgeon, sends Sherlock Holmes, Dr. John Watson, and Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard deep into a maelstrom of murder and mayhem. Does a mysterious piece of paper that leads them to the British Museum hold the key to these killings? And what are they truly dealing with? As the death toll climbs, Holmes, Watson, and Lestrade race to solve the dreadful mystery of the Curse of Neb-Heka-Ra.

There are a lot of rewards, including being a character in a future book. My last Kickstarter, for “The Adventure of the Bloody Duck and other tales of Sherlock Holmes” also had this reward which someone purchased. I won’t tell you the character’s name, as it was brought as a surprise gift for someone else. But if you ever fancied appearing in a Sherlock Holmes story, you can have that chance again, as this reward is once again on offer. As I am now in the research and planning stages for my fifth novel, you have the chance to get in on the ground floor, so to speak.

All my previous books are available directly from MX Publishing.

The Adventure of the Bloody Duck and other tales of Sherlock Holmes

9 Feb

“The Adventure of the Bloody Duck and other tales of Sherlock Holmes” is the title of my anthology of six short stories due for publication by MX Publishing on 19th June 2022.

There are a couple of offers going on to help celebrate this.

The first is a Kickstarter with a number of rewards on offer, including autographed copies of the anthology, and, if you are interested, the chance to be a character in a forthcoming story.

The second is a ‘3 for 2’ offer from MX Publishing on books by their Australian authors.

Why not check them out?

Sherlock Holmes of Baking Street

6 Apr

During lockdown last year, the wonderful Margie Deck had the idea of an anthology based on the play of words between Baker Street and Baking. Enter Nancy Holder and with the support of Belanger Books the idea became a reality.

“Sherlock Holmes of Baking Street” is not a cookbook. It is a book the theme of Sherlock Holmes and baking. It is a skillful mix of essays, fiction, and an interview. Included in the mix is a new short story from me: “Best Served Cold” which is not for those with a delicate stomach!

The anthology is now on Kickstarter, with some great packages for supporters. Why not pop over and check out the delicious menu of writers and snag yourself a great deal at the same time.
