Publishing News – 2022

As Patricia’s Pen is taking a short break from the Tuesday Guest Feature I thought I’d fill you in with what I’ve been doing over the year, my publishing successes, and updates on works in progress. 2022 has been fruitful. Both in publishing and getting words down on paper.

The Oath – Late Victorian/Early Edwardian family saga – hopefully some publishing news in the first quarter of 2023 – Watch this space.

Bound by a 100-year-old oath, seventeen-year-old, Françoise Dubois is forced to leave France and marry an English baronet. Will she find true love and happiness?

The Oath has sequel potential.

Fractured – Set in the early nineteen seventies – family saga (Book 1 of 3) Watch this space

A year ago, all eighteen-year-old Rachel Webster had to worry about was keeping her mum and dad off her back. Nothing she did was right. Skirt too short. Friend a bad influence. Job not good enough. Then things spiralled.

Novel – Work in Progress

Fractured (2) – Title to be determined

Opening in 1977, re-join Rachel Webster and Peggy Davies in this gripping saga.

Poetry Collections in Progress

Embracing my Roots

Two cultures, Jewish and Irish, come together in poetry as I embrace my roots.

Signed copies of all my books, poetry and novels, are available via my website shop HERE. Unfortunately signed novels are only available for posting in the UK.

If you prefer Kindle or outside of the UK then check out my Amazon Author Page HERE

All books may also be ordered via any good bookstore or ask your library to order them in if they don’t already stock it.

If you have read any of my books and enjoyed them, a brief review over on Amazon or Goodreads are really appreciated.

    Wow! I’m so impressed by all you’ve done this year, Tricia!

    (BTW, if that’s me, my name is Merril.) 🙂

      Golly thank you for pulling me up. Absolutely I know you’re Merril, must have been on autopilot as I have another friend who is Meryl!

      All corrected now.

      Hope you’ve had a fabulous holiday and birthday time. How’s the weather there now for you?

        You’re welcome and thank you!
        It was very cold and very wind on the 23rd and 24th, but today it’s pretty nice. Just normal winter, but the sun is out.
