We return to Lindchester the week after Easter.  Here's where you need to be: 

And on July 17th, Acts and Omissions will be published by SPCK, when they will also be reissuing Angels and Men.  Here's what they will look like:

Gone, gone gone...

If you were hoping to catch up on the latest events from the Diocese of Lindchester, I'm afraid you've missed your chance.  You will now have to wait until August, when Acts and Omissions will be published by SPCK.  (They will also be reissuing Angels and Men, by the way.)  I've left Chapter 1 here to tantalise any new readers who have only just found out that yes, finally Catherine Fox has written a new novel.

In fact, I've been writing all these years of apparent silence.  A lot of it has been non-fiction.  For example, some larky books about life in the Vicarage, published by Monarch Books, and a memoir about my attempt to get a judo black belt:

Most recently, I've taken a detour into writing Young Adult fantasy.  You may think you don't like fantasy, but if you liked my other novels, I guarantee you'll like Wolf Tide.

Anyway, for those who can't be doing with novels about sinister fairies, take heart, the sequel to Acts and Omissions begins this Easter.  I will be blogging Unseen Things Above in weekly instalments.  You will be the first to know about it.  Especially if you follow me on Twitter @FictionFox.

And so, farewell...

That's it from Lindchester for a while.  I'm now in the midst of editing the whole year's worth of instalments into something that more closely resembles an actual novel.  At the end of the the month I will submit this to SPCK, so that they can get it ready for publication this coming August.

This means that I will be removing Acts and Omissions from this blog, everyone.  You have till the end of January to enjoy it in this form, and then you must wait for the published version (real paper book for Luddites, eBook for those who prefer to read electronically.)

It's been a fun year of writing.  We will be back in Lindchester at Easter to see what they've all been up to.  By which time they will be in the midst of trying to appoint a replacement for Paul Henderson.  And I understand that the senior lay clerk, who is a tenor, will be retiring.  Which will create another vacancy for an aspiring young tenor to apply to...
