Josiah Stubb - Won't Be Long Now

It's not up on Amazon yet, but it won't be long now. Peter Fussey has just finished the cover art for "Josiah Stubb." I'm so delighted with the result I'm wearing out the exclamation mark on my keyboard!!!!

Peter writes: "A week later than I wished, but finally it's finished!! Now I shall sleep for a week."

Don't worry about the delay, Peter, it was well worth the wait. Sleep well, my friend. 

 Stay tuned to this site folks, I think we're talking hours rather than days.

 "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?"
