I'd love to take the credit for this, but in truth as always there's a massive debt to be paid to my wonderful friends and family who have sort of volunteered to Alpha read. You know who you are and thank you! With your help, book #3 in the Griffin Riders' Chronicles is nearing completion. It's still lacking a title and way behind schedule. There's a good reason for this, honest, and as soon as I think of it, I'll let you know. Any suggestions for procrastination welcome, as are any title suggestions for book #3.
Meantime, if you want to grab a goodie for your kindle, Jenny Worstall's fabulous romantic comedy "Make a Joyful Noise" is available to download free for a couple of days.
'Make a Joyful Noise' is the sparkling tale of a choir preparing for a very special Christmas performance of "Belshazzar's Feast".
We meet a host of characters who are mercilessly sent up by the author: Lucy the staggeringly trusting young music teacher, Tristan the lecherous anti-hero, Miss Greymitt the ageing and slightly arthritic choir pianist, Steve the handsome and trustworthy bass, Claire the shameless and scheming temptress, and singers with nothing but resonance between their ears.
Just as all does not run smoothly for King Belshazzar or the inhabitants of Babylon in Walton's music, so the characters in the novel suffer from hopeless yearnings, romantic misunderstandings and the unfortunate consequences of their own misguided actions.
All is sharply and wittily observed in a delightful mix of romance, music and humour.
(Multi talented Jenny provided musical advice for The Griffin Cryer.)
