It's her birthday, so in honour of Mary's mum and the detective agency's namesake, I thought I'd give an update.
It's eight months to the release of Book One in stores worldwide, and in the meantime I'm working away on Book Three. I'll have a special announcement for the backers of the short story soon, which I think is going to be fantastic. Also I was hoping to announce the voice of the audiobooks, but there is still paperwork – but if it ends up being the voice actress we're talking to, the audiobooks will sound amazing.
If you're shopping for projects to back, I know I've shared with you the work of Brendan Myers before (he wrote the critical thinking textbook) but here's his Urban Fantasy series: he's 4 books in, and self-publishing them. Early readers have compared them to Neil Gaiman's American Gods, and I've called it Percy-Jackson-demigods-meets-House-of-Cards politics. He's only $600 or so from getting them edited and laid out and good to go. Take a look: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1547922245/fellwater
So if you have a moment, take some time to learn more about this incredibly influential woman, Mary Wollstonecraft: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Wollstonecraft - I'll take a break from writing this Sunday afternoon and raise a mug of tea to her, and revisit her classic "Vindication" http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3420
