Jane Bond? Chastity Flame!

I was amused by this tweet from Radio 4 wondering — at this late date  — whether it was time for Jane Bond. I think Peter O’Donnell and I both would have the same eye-rolling reaction to that, not to mention a host of historical women! But wait, there’s more:

CHASTITY FLAME is back! Well, not so much back as still here but with a new twist. Thanks to Smashwords, Wattpad and Tirgearr Publishing, we’re serialising the first book of the trilogy. That’s right, you can read the book for FREE that’s been called ’50 Shades of James Bond’ and ‘a highly addictive, fast-moving, clever, sexy and funny globe-trotting, spy romp.

Head over to Wattpad to start reading one chapter a day! Be advised, it’s smoking hot so not for the prudish (who might prefer Kit Marlowe’s The Height of Absurdity).

Can’t wait that long? Jump over to Smashwords (the alternative to Amazon) and pick up the book or all three in the trilogy.

Need other purchasing options? Hop on over to Tirgearr Publishing and check out all the books they’ve got, mine and others. They’ve got something to suit every taste.

Packing for a Getaway

I started the day teaching from the Sermo Lupi and making comparisons to current apocalyptic predictions. In 1014, Wulfstan made similar prognostications about the lack of a future, due of course to our sinfulness, leofan men. I tried to point out to them that medieval folk would have had many of the same reactions as we do — mostly because they had to get back to the work of getting enough food to live on.

Actually I started with my students working on their productions of Hrotsvita’s plays, but I didn’t have to do much in that class except answer questions while they practiced and did some blocking. I love Hrotsvita: her works run from would-be necrophiliacs to virgins threatened with the brothel life and deals with devils. Drama is so much better when the students perform it. They actually understand what’s happening!

Of course, I need to pack as I am on the road tomorrow to #RallyinRaleigh for Bouchercon. Hope to see a lot of folks there. I’ll be in Graham Wynd mode, promoting both Chastity Flame (first novel free in your bag thanks to Smashwords) and of course, Satan’s Sorority.

I will endeavour to send some missives from my travels, though more likely on FB and Twitter because of course, they’re easier. And handing out these:
