Okay, Harry fans, the wait is over, at least for ebook readers.
Harry's Quest, the hard-boiled, noir and very sexy sequel to Harry's World, went live as an ebook this morning on Amazon Kindle as well as Kobo.
Other ebook sites are following, as is the Print-on-Demand version.
And news from the printers here in Australia - the original paperbacks will be ready next week. Yes, around mid-week, I'm told, a truck will be bringing me 1,000 copies of Harry's Quest, hot off the press.
And these new episodes for Harry and friends are sizzling hot, my friends! Be warned - not for the faint-hearted, that's for sure.
Harry's Quest has headed for the printers today. Final tweaks made to the typeset manuscript and I pressed the green GO button for production! And now drinking red wine, of course.
The original printed paperbacks should be ready in a couple of weeks, but the ebook versions and the POD versions should be available in the next few days.
I'll keep you posted!
And, given Harry's Quest is a sequel, if you haven't read Harry's World, then time to hop in and grab it now!
Spring in Sydney, aside from bringing in the warmer weather, is resplendent in purple, as the jacaranda trees burst into bloom across the cityscape.
I love these trees and their flowers, as does my PI Harry Kenmare. If you've read Harry's World, then you'll know the scene where Harry is walking down Kelly Street to his local watering hole, the Emerald Bar, with the cascade of jacaranda flowers coming down.
Here's a few photos form my neighbourhood, including along Kelly Street, with my local watering hole, the Australian Youth Hotel in the background. And yes, it is the same watering hole as the Emerald Bar in the Harry stories.
And I'm a complete novice at poetry, but here goes:
The canopy of delicate leaves, vibrant green,
Such splendid beauty reveals nature's vast power,
If this awe is not enough to make one serene,
Then hail spring with its majestic purple shower.
