So, it's almost September, which was when I promised the new Chen novel to all of you who were kind enough to pre-order it. Due to family problems (my father has been very ill and is now in a hospice) I'm more behind with projects than I would like. However, the novel has been going quite well - we're about 3/4 done, and the ending is mapped out, so if all is well, I should finish it reasonably soon. It's still likely to be towards the end of the month, possibly a little into October, as I would like to leave it to 'sit' for a bit before revision. But then that's it! It will be with you.

And remember, you can find the backlist of all the Chen novels with NYC publishers Open Road.

I bet readers will even forgive you if it takes until November to get the book out. *hugs*

There's no rush. I know when it arrives it will be wonderful.

I'm so sorry to hear about your father. As far as I'm concerned, "whenever" would be a perfectly fine pub date under the circumstances.

Margot Adler will be waiting to welcome him, though I hope she has to wait a good long while.

Do you accept prayers? We seem to be in such bad reputation these days, God(dess) doesn't strike me as being as fussy.

Many thanks to everyone, and prayers are most welcome, of any disposition.

This is the one after "The Iron Khan"? I will look out for it.

I hope that everything goes as well for your father as possible in the circumstances. And for you and Trevor too.

I have just finished reading the Inspector Chen books for the first time. Only recently came across them. I loved them. How and where do I go to order Morningstar? I would really like to read it, but no amount of googling has led me to a place I can pre-order it.

All the best to you and your family, and best wishes to your father.

Thanks so much! You can order it as an e-book from me (email me at It's £10 by paypal to the same address). There may be a hard copy a bit later, and it should be with everyone by the end of Sept. I've nearly finished the book, in fact.
