Samhain Closure Update

I have some good news to share: I’ve signed contracts with those lovely people at Riptide Publishing to republish my Plumber’s Mate Mysteries and the Shamwell Tales. Dates TBA, but it’s hoped the Shamwell series will be re-released in time for the publication of #4 in the series, SPUN!, on 3rd July.

Muscling Through is to be re-released by JMS Books, with a provisional date of 1st April, and I’m hoping it’ll be available for the first time in paperback!

I’ll be self-publishing several of my books, and the (very) tentative release schedule is as follows:

Pricks & Pragmatism – Southampton Stories #1 01-May-17
Hard Tail– Southampton Stories #2 15-May-17
Slam! 29-May-17
Fall Hard 12-Jun-17
Raising the Rent 26-Jun-17

The plan is for them to appear on KU for the first 3 months, then on other platforms after that.  Dates of publication may change if necessary so as not to clash with books coming out from publishers, but I’ll keep you posted.

Please note that bringing books out in paperback will NOT be a priority for me, so if you want a print copy of one of these books or any of my other Samhain titles, it might be a good idea to order one now.

I’ll let you know re my other Samhain titles: Camwolf, Midnight in Berlin, Wight Mischief and To Love a Traitor, when I have something definite to tell you.

Reminder: all of my Samhain books will be coming down from retail sites from  Wednesday 1st March.

Please make sure you have downloaded and backed up all your purchases!

She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at:

      Yes, Wake Up Call will be available in paperback as soon as it comes out on 17th April. I have a box of them not 3 feet away right now. 🙂
      And the only Samhain books going to KU will be the ones I self-publish, with titles and dates listed above – plus, I believe, Muscling Through, as I’m told all my new titles with JMS (mainly short stories) will be available on KU (or may already be so? Not sure!)

      Hope that helps! 🙂

    This is great news… I am most excited about Muscling Through.. it’s still my favorite of yours and my go to comfort short read. Can’t wait to get it in paperback. Also glad to hear Riptide was smart enough to snatch up your great series.

      Thanks! And yes, it’s great to see something positive come out of all this – I’ve been wanting to get Muscling Through in paperback for years. 🙂

      I’m hoping Riptide will get the books out in audiobook and translation, too – watch this space for details.
