So long Avalon and thanks for all the fish…

Well, after a year of speculation about what the future holds for the US publishing imprint Avalon Books, the press release is now out and basically Amazon now own Avalon:


Avalon publish my Fergal O'Brien western series, which currently runs to six books, while the prospective seventh has sat in their slush pile for the last year during this time of transition and uncertainty. I'm not sure yet what to make of the news. On the face of it, it's an exciting development as it sounds as if the Fergal series could be made available in its entirety for Kindle, although what it means for my chances of continuing the series or placing more books with them, I don’t know yet. I'll post more details as they become available.
