"Josiah Stubb: Interim" Enjoying a Good Day in the UK

It's been a good morning in the UK for my latest release, "Josiah Stubb: Interim," the sequel to "The Siege of Louisbourg," coming in the top 100 in all three of its categories - Just ahead of Mark Twain in one, and just behind Bernard Cornwell in another, and squeaking under the line in the 'United States' category, which is worth a bit of a giggle, as I keep trying to tell Amazon that Josiah Stubb has very little to do with the US. Not that I'm complaining, but really, it's like arguing with a wall.

    "Josiah Stubb: Interim" - Now Released!

    "Interim," the second book of the Josiah Stubb trilogy, is now released. Not only that, it has its first review! Thanks very much, Monique.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I Found Josiah Stubb Very Endearing April 14 2017
    By Monique Lomino - Published on
    Josiah Stubb is a character that I found very endearing. He's far from perfect,as a matter of fact,most would not have succeeded in bettering themselves after having lived through his horrendous upbringing. This story picks up where "The Siege of Louisbourg" left off.
    Reading this book,I felt as if I was living the story along with the characters. On many occasions I found myself holding my breath while my heart beat erratically. You are transported to 1758 Canada,where the English are at war with the French,the English trying to take over Canada . Not only was reading this book exciting,it gives you a history lesson,one that I was fascinated to learn. The first book in the series is a spectacular read,so it is of no surprise that this carries on the tradition. C W Lovatt puts enough information about the first book into this one ,to allow you to understand the backstory if you choose to read it out of sequence.This tale is so very fascinating,with colorful characters,witty dialogue and the very best historical storyline I've read in ages.
    This is an outstanding book and I highly recommend it,and for those of you who haven't read the first book,I beseech you to read Josiah's first book " The Siege of Louisbourg".

    "Josiah Stubb: Interim" Coming Soon!!

    Only six more sleeps to release date (squeeee!)

    Now available for pre-order. Release date April 14.

    Book 2 in the Josiah Stubb series.

    September, 1758: the fortress of Louisbourg lies beaten into the mud on the Cape Breton shore. To consolidate their victory, the British are mopping up pockets of resistance along The Gulf of Saint Lawrence. However, although gravely wounded, New France still has teeth, personified by a ruthless officer who will stop at nothing to prevent the hated anglais from advancing another step.

    To oppose him is the young, but untried, lieutenant, Josiah Stubb, born in the gutter and raised into the hostile environs of the officers’ mess by none other than General Wolfe himself. Deep in the forests of the Gaspé Peninsula, pitted against a fierce enemy who asks for, and gives no, quarter, Josiah is riven with doubts about his own abilities as an officer, with the lives of himself, and the men he commands, hanging in the balance.

    "Charlie Smithers: Adventures in India" - A Review - "A Great Followup..."

    With another book coming out in a few short weeks, my focus always tends to be on that one, like a child that has grown until it's ready to go out and take its place in the world. So yes, I do tend to fuss over those ones quite a bit more than the others. In that light, it's always a delight when one of my more established books is discovered by a new reader, and they are kind enough to write a review.

    Thank  you Sandra, you've quite made my day.

    on April 1, 2017
    Once again, C W Lovatt does not dissapoint with this second installement of the Charlie Smithers series. It is as much an action-adventure book as it is a recount of historical events that happened and were recorded in history. I always had a hard time to put one of C W Lovatt's books down and this one was no exception. As much as the subject matter of this book was complex, as much it was written in a way that I was able to understand it all and have a jolly old time while reading it. I also had a fond affection for some of the characters of the book and I do wish them well as they parted towards the end of the story. Still, remembering the feelings the first book of the series left a lasting imprint in me that will never go away, I felt that this book was an excellent followup to the first one. The powerful message and emotions from book one are well felt in book two and I do hope that they are and will continue to be throughout the whole series. A great work by C W Lovatt indeed.
