Just received an email from a reader, traveller, photographer who has just finished reading The Greenland Trilogy. It never fails to have an impact when I hear from readers who have enjoyed my books. Of course, when they are also mad about Greenland, and have been there… well, it just gets better and better.
Be sure to check out Lisa Germany’s website for her amazing photos from Greenland and other exciting places around the world.
A while ago I suggested that I needed an Australian character in the third book of The Greenland Trilogy. He’s arrived, and his name is Rhys Thomas. The Americans are represented too, as are the Canadians – again. But The Shaman’s House starts in Greenland, of course. There are more Greenlanders than in the previous books, as we spend more time in the populated areas – places I have lived, and visited. The closer I get to releasing The Shaman’s House, the more personal I realise the book has become. The story is pure fiction – adrenaline fueled – but the locations, and some of the anecdotes – sometimes fact can be stranger than fiction and a real source of inspiration.
Everything is made up, or used fictitiously, but I did enjoy writing my old house into the story!
Curious to read about where I lived? The final installment in the Greenland Trilogy is now available for pre-order at a special price.
Following The Ice Star down under, I find myself regularly asking Google what time it is in Australia “right now”. And right now, The Ice Star is moving up the charts for International Mystery and Crime on Amazon.
So, as a crazy thank you to the sudden boost in readers taking a chance on my book, I dug around for an Aussie song from my childhood… I was 10 at the time. Right now, well, I’m a little older.
Thanks again to Aussie readers! Have a great day/evening.
I mentioned the nerves, but bundled in among them is a serious jag of excitement, not least due to the increasing number of books sales, pre-orders and ratings from Australia.
That settles it, I have to have an Australian character in book three: The Shaman’s House.
Book three is already well under way, building to a serious climax in The Greenland Trilogy.
Stay tuned, mate!
