Sorry for the delay, it was a matter of days not hours after all, but "Josiah Stubb" is now up and running on Amazon. If there's anything you should take away from this experience, it's not to take me along to the horse races with you. Obviously my predictions aren't worth a damn.
The paperback is due out in mid-April (in case you were wondering, this prediction is from Sam, not me)
"It is 1758 and The Seven Years War is raging. The military might of the British and French empires collide in a desperate bid to control the key strategic Fortress of Louisbourg and, in turn, Quebec and French-held North America.
One man caught amidst the bloodshed is the young grenadier, Josiah Stubb. Raised by a whore amidst poverty and incest, Josiah seemed doomed from birth to a life in the gutter. His attempt to leave his sordid past behind leads him to Louisbourg, but it comes back to haunt him in the form of a gifted officer, battling his own inner demons.
As the siege blazes towards its inevitable bloody climax, will Josiah live to overcome the formidable obstacles that keep him chained to his past, or will his aspirations for a better life die with him on the brooding shores of Ile Royale?"
