Closing Down

Things have been winding down over the last year and now the decision has been taken to close Blue Hour Publishing permanently. All books have been withdrawn from sale.

Thanks to all those who have supported us over the years by buying our books!  Now we will sit back, put our feet up and actually read a few books ourselves.

Just a Head in a Bed

Not a lot has been happening at Blue Hour Publishing over the last year due to circumstances beyond our control.

However, Kristen Stone has completed another book which is now available at all the usual places and possibly a few more! Draft2Digital who distribute our books for us have connections with libraries and subscription services of all sorts.

So here is the link to find your store of choice

Once again Kristen Stone has introduced new characters and taken the reader to meet people struggling with life as they knew it.

Sad Farewell

Due to health problems I regret to say I am cutting back on Blue Hour Publishing and releasing most of our authors. Things have started pulling back with books from Kira Morgana, Robert Craven and Bertram George already deleted. At the end of the month Patrick Mulready and Ryan Spier will also be released.

I will be keeping my books live, along with Stephen R Hulse, Charlotte Castle and S J Ridgway.

I am not looking for any new authors.

It has been a privilege working with such fine authors and I wish them success in the future.

Long Awaited New Book From Kristen Stone

Yes, folks. I have been so busy editing and publishing books for our other authors my own work has taken a bit of a back seat. Added to the fact that my writing break never happened this winter!

  But I am pleased to announce I have finally finished my latest book. If The World Hadn't Changed.
A look at how we might be living if all the reforms of the past century and more had not taken place.
Some beta readers have found it a bit confusing because there are mentions of new technology in with some older attitudes. Don't try to place it in the past...this is the future!

Available now at all the usual places. See My Page for links.

Coming from Monday 20th June 2016

The great adventure/fantasy book The Tower and the Eye has been available for some time.
Now all five stories that make up this saga are being released as individual books. The first four are novellas which set the scene for the final Nightbringer. If you would prefer to taste one or two before the big one you can now. From Monday the books will be released on Kindle Select, so you can get them for free to borrow if you are on Amazon Prime! Each day will see the next in the series released. As they are short novellas you can easily keep up if you wish.

The books are also on pre-order. Here are the links:

Book Three: Freya's Freedom

In the next town the two become five, having been joined by Kraarz, an Urakh Shaman; Vox, his Otherworld Spirit Guide and Lin, an Elysian warrior on a quest of her own. It is just as well, for Freya is walking into a danger she is ill equipped to face alone...
