Well, we’re finally here… The eve of the launch of Kindred Spirits: Royal Mile, and just about the time that, last time, I started fretting that somehow, between author, editor, publisher and printer, the whole thing has somehow been translated into Martian, or that every other word / page / chapter has been mysteriously deleted! I worried about this so much last time that I didn’t dare open the e-book I had downloaded for days after the launch.
Of course I needn’t have worried.
Because of course, it was all fine, and it will all be fine tomorrow when Royal Mile hits the electronic shelves. But I do wonder whether I’m the only one who feels like this ahead of their Big Day?
Enough of worries though, and onto celebrations! I’m having an online launch party (click here), with guests, games, chatter and competitions. There’s even the chance to win a Mary, Queen of Scots bath duck! Yes, you read that right – you’ll have to come along and take part to find out… So, do come along and take part in the fun. We’ll even have virtual tablet – the greatest culinary creation the world has ever known!
If you do get yourself a copy, I’d love to hear what you think!
Kindred Spirits: Royal Mile: Along Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile, royalty and commoners – living and dead – mingle amongst the museums, cafés and former royal residences. From Castle Hill to Abbey Strand, there is far more going on than meets the eye, as ghosts of every era and background make their home along the Mile.
Returning to the city for her annual visit, Mary, Queen of Scots, is troubled by the lacklustre attitude of her father, King James V of Scotland, and decides to do something about it, with the aid of her spiritual companions. More troubling, though, is the arrival of a constant thorn in her side: her second husband, Lord Darnley.
Can Mary resolve both her own issues and those of her small, ghostly court?
