HI, I’m Jack Cartwright, I’m a USA Today bestselling author of more than thirty novels, and this is my video diary.
It’s the 3rd of January, 2022, and in this episode I’ll be giving you a quick update on where I am in the series, I’ll be telling you where to find the photos from my recent research trips, and I’ll be explaining where you can get your hands on a copy of my free novella, Dead Like Them.
So, in case you haven’t seen or heard of me before, here’s a quick recap of who I am and what I’m doing. I’m a seasoned author of more than thirty action crime novels all under a different pen name. My new series, The Wild Fens Murder Mysteries, is a police procedural, regional crime series. Think JM Dalgliesh, or Simon Mccleave. What I’m planning is something that should delight readers like you. I’m planning on releasing the first ten books in the series, one month apart, beginning May 2022. That’s five months away.
Where am I right now? I have the first five books written already. They’re all going through the editing and proofreading process right now. I also have a 30,000 word novella written and ready to for you to download for free. Just see my website, jackcartwrightbooks.com for more details. And, as of New Years Day, a few days ago, book 6 is well under way. That one should be ready for the first round of editing by the end of January.
If you enjoy book covers, then check out the series page on my website. As a photographer myself, some of the images are my own, which I take during my research trips. Which leads me nicely onto the next bit.
I’ve been out and about over the Christmas holiday, visiting the locations for the books I’ve already written, and the ones that haven’t been written yet. If you know Lincolnshire well, then you might just know some of the locations. You can find a set of images on the individual books pages, and there will be more to follow.
So, to recap. I’m 4% of the way through book of the Wild Fens Murder Mysteries, and the next time you see me, I should be on 10-12%. Don’t forget to visit www.jackcartwrightbooks.com to download my free novella, Dead Like Them, and I’ll be back in a few days to let you know how I’m getting on. Take care.
