At last – an update!

December 28th, 2015 Comments off

OK, it’s been a while, I know, but writing books is time consuming.

The current state of play with the books is that the Rare Traits trilogy is complete – although one day there might be a fourth part a la Douglas Adams – and my fourth book, Irrefutable Evidence is to be released on the world in January 2016.

At present, Rare Traits is permanently free on most ebook outlets, so all you have to do is go to Amazon, Kobo, B&N, Smashwords etc, type in the title and you can download it free, gratis and for nothing.

Parts II & III in the trilogy, Delusional Traits and Murderous Traits, are available exclusively from Amazon as ebooks for $3.99 or equivalent, while print-on-demand paperbacks of all three books are available from Amazon’s CreateSpace – go to your Amazon pages for details. If you are an Amazon Prime customer, you can get the ebooks for free.

Here are the covers:

If this is not your first visit to Retired and Roaming, you may be surprised by the sudden paucity of information!

Following a hacking of another of my sites, this site was accidentally upgraded to an incompatible theme and it would appear that all the original posting data is lost. Ho hum, most of it was way out of date anyway. When I have time, I’ll get round to resurrecting the site in a more relevant form. In the meantime, I recommend that you go on over to my current author website: where you can learn all about the first two of my books in the Rare Traits Trilogy: Rare Traits and Delusional Traits, including how you can buy them. The third part of the trilogy, Murderous Traits is currently in preparation (March 2014).

In addition, I recommend you also go over to my wife Gail’s site, where you can find  out about her wonderful illustrated children’s books: Patrick’s Birthday Message, Searching for Skye and Cosmos the Curious Whale.

Here are our book covers – click on the images to go to our sites.
