Publication date almost here

My new book ‘The Rising Tide’ will be on the shelves on Thursday 7th November. The jacket has already been designed and printed and I’ve sent the proof copy of the book to my publishers for signing off. It’s an exciting moment for me and, I hope, for my readers many of whom have been in touch, wanting to know how things are progressing.

Without giving too much away, the story again melds fact and fiction, this time dealing with issues of slavery – particularly the plight of Africans brought to England as slaves – and the opposition to the work of the abolitionists.

Of course, publication simply means the end of one book and the beginning of another. Book 4 in the Tom Pascoe series is already underway although I’m currently struggling to find a title that works. The story is about an act of piracy on the River Thames at the end of the 18th Century, and the pursuit of those responsible. Anybody got any ideas?

    Suggested Title for book 4

    “The Dark Waters”

      Hi Neville,

      I like the sound of your proposed title and may well use it for a future book. The draft of the current work is almost finished with the working title of ‘Cuckold Point’. It’s a real place on Limehouse Reach on the Thames and was, for many years, one of three places in London where convicted pirates were hanged. The book is due out in March of next year.

      Thanks for your interest.

          Dear Ruth,
          Thanks for getting in touch. I’m so pleased you’ve enjoyed the series so far. The next book (now nearing completion) is due for publication in March next year. I do hope you’ll enjoy it.

          Hi Ruth,
          I thought you’d like to know that my new book, Virginia Street was published a few days ago and is available through Amazon. There’s more on the story on my website but if you get it, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
          Regards,

        That’s excellent news Patrick. I have read all of your books, and look forward to the next one in March.

          Hi Clive,
          I thought you’d like to know that my new book, Virginia Street, has just been published and is available through Amazon. There’s more about the story on my website and, of course, on Facebook where I keep beating the drum.
          Regards,

      Hi Neville,
      I don’t seem to have ever replied to your suggestion for the title of Book 4. That was eventually published with the name Cuckold Point but I’ve still got The Dark Waters at the back of my mind. Meanwhile I thought you might like to know that my latest novel, Virginia Street, has just been published and is available through Amazon. There’s more about the book on my website. If you get it, I’d love to hear what you think of it.
      Regards

    I have enjoyed your first three books, in hardback (which is how I intend to buy ‘Cuckold’s Point’) and am looking forward to No. 4 in the series. Got hooked probably because I also enjoy Julian Stockwin’s ‘Kydd’ series which I have, also in hardback. Great reading!

      Hi David,

      Seems your email got lost somewhere in the system but great to hear from you. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the stories so far. As you probably know, my new book Cuckold Point is due out on 3rd April. I’d love to hear what you think of it.

      Regards,

      Patrick
