With everything that’s been going on in the world – and personal life – it’s hard to believe I managed to keep to the 2020 publishing schedule I set for myself a couple of years ago. It helped that I had to quit my previous day job just in time for the pandemic, and after a short while I finally resolved to stick to writing full-time.
It’s going to be a bit less crazy next year. The schedule for 2021 includes only two books in the Song of Britain: The Wrath of Iutes and The Crown of Iutes – and a short novella set between them.

The Song of Octa, Book 1: The Blood of the Iutes
It’s December 15th 2020, which means it’s the release date for the Blood of the Iutes! Those of you who preordered the ebook, should already have it on your Kindles by now, or later today. Everyone else can just buy it as normal – or opt for a neat paperback version!
The Blood of the Iutes is the first installment in the new Song of Octa trilogy, but it’s also the fourth volume of the Song of Britain series, following the conclusion of the Song of Ash trilogy.
If you want to start following the story from the beginning, then heads-up: the Saxon Spears will be available for 99p/99c on a Countdown Deal on December 22nd!
