The Duke & Dandy Trilogy


I’ve almost finished readying the Duke & Dandy Trilogy for release. ‘Twas written as a complete novel, but 100,000 words felt a tad daunting to attempt as a first foray into self-publishing. I simply wished to have some stories available for free & on KU, so releasing it as a trilogy seemed the best way to test the waters. Both in terms of familiarizing myself with Kindle Create & also offering a snippet of something that is…a mite Marmitey.

In the intervening months I have, many times, wondered if I should try to dilute my writing. I’m not sure ‘twould be possible, even if I wanted to. Every word I write echoes the way I think, so I’d need to rewire my brain first…a feat I’ve spent too long attempting in IRL to wish it upon my inner world, too.

Anyhoo…The Duke & The Dandy Trilogy, which has been revised & re-edited, is on its way. This is version I’d hope people had in their hands when they began the book.

Gay Book Promotions have kindly agreed to host a three day tour for me. Chances are, I may drop dead before then, largely on accounts of deeming it a damned fine plan to send off copies for reviewers. I fear the worst; from the dodgy formatting of those PDF’s to the contents therein. The finished book will have italics and dialogue where they should be, I promise. 😳 As ’tis a tadalot late to worry about that—or indeed, my marbles—this may well be the last blog I’ll foist upon you…

  1. Releases are stressful aren’t they? The worry leading up to it, then being on edge right after, wondering how it’ll be received. And I don’t think it matters how many readthroughs I give a manuscript, there’s always something else I wish I could tweak after it’s out of my hands.

    “Undiluted” Zakarrie is half the fun of reading your books, so I hope you don’t overdilute! 🌺💋❣️

      1. Oh thank you…so much. 💞They’re the first ones I’ve sent, so I’ve just fretted a lot whenever I’ve happened upon a bit I wish I could fix.😳❤
