Download now: The “Merry Christmas and a Blessed Yule” Freebie!

I hope this will bring all Age of Sail aficionados out there a little extra-cheer. May you and your loved ones have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed Yule! Neither is complete without a decent ghost story, read by candlelight, accompanied by a mug of hot cocoa.

THE RADIANT BOY (*.pdf file)
Four Ghost Stories from the Age of Sail

At the annual meeting of the “Young Bucks Club”, four officers serving in the Royal Navy during the Age of Sail share ghostly naval tales:

“The Radiant Boy”
“Crawford’s Casket”
“The Last Journey of HMS Dover
“Last Service”

The second book in Emma Collingwood’s and Amandine de Villeneuve’s “Penny, Dreadful and Tarbottom”-series, “The Radiant Boy” is an eerie and touching tribute to the classic English ghost story and the Royal Navy.

Yule – time for Peace, Love and Freebies!

Here’s one more reason for the world not to end on 21 December: you’d miss my present!

On Monday, 24 December I’ll post a freebie here for you to download and enjoy. It’s the kind of story which is a traditional part of every Christmas in my home, and I hope you’ll enjoy it.

So please come back next Monday – I’ll be here!

New Freebie: In Honour of Admiral Collingwood’s Birthday: Download “Last Service”!

While this freebie would be just as suited for Trafalgar Day, I decided to upload “Last Service” now – it’s Vice Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood’s 264th birthday, and this is a tale I’ve written in his honour, after all!

Collingwood, Nelson and the Victory in one story – I hope this will be a worthy treat for my fellow Age of Sail aficionados out there. Enjoy!
