We're back - kicking arse and whipping up a storm

I'm never moving home again - it'll be months of living out of boxes from here on in, but at least we now have an Internet connection at the new place so The Archive can get back to doing what it's does best. We got switched back on this morning and it's great to see that my novel, The Ballad of Delta Rose is still riding high in the western charts, while my debut novel The Tarnished Star (soon to be filmed as, Lawmaster) is still selling strongly. Incidentally today I signed the large print rights of Delta Rose over to F A Thorpe Publishing so expect a spanking new large print trade paperback on library shelves soon.

However the big news at the moment is with The Dead Walked which is my first horror novel and will be hitting the digital stores this Halloween. Credited to the pen name, Vincent Stark the book is the first in a trilogy concerning a zombie apocalypse. The book will be published by my own imprint, KitchenSinkPublications and will be the debut novel from this imprint, which I hope to grow and build a quirky list. This is my first real foray into self publishing and is something I intend to concentrate on as well as continuing to bring out westerns under my popular Jack Martin byline with my publisher, Robert Hale Ltd. Wild Bill Williams will see print during June 2012 and will be my fifth western for the Black Horse Westerns imprint, and of course the large print edition of, The Ballad of Delta Rose is in the pipeline, so both Jack and Vinnie should remain highly visible.

Good luck on your new venture! You're a very productive and busy young man.

Welcome back! I hope you do better than me with unpacking boxes. I still have books kept in the same sturdy cartons I packed them into before setting out for New Zealand in 1967! "Heinz White Vinegar - Two Dozen Half Pints - H. J. Heinz Co. Ltd London." Not quite as alluring as the similar cardboard boxes in which the Hale warehouse used to mail out complimentary copies of Black Horse Westerns: "Bell's Old Scotch Whisky - Extra Special - 6 x 1.5 litre bottles - Product of Scotland."
