Book 2 is out!!!

dbd_150x225Death by Disputation, Book 2 in the Francis Bacon Series, is finally out. I’m experimenting with publishing options, so the digital version will be available exclusively at Amazon for 3 months. If this annoys you, please let me know!

The paper version will be out in February. I’m waiting to get a nice review to put on the back cover. (Vanity, vanity. As Shakespeare put it, “Shine out, fair sun, till I have bought a glass, that I may see my shadow as I pass.” This, after reading your own reviews :-).

You can read the blurb and whatnot on the regular page. You can also read the first chapter, if you should so desire.

This book takes place in Cambridge; partly for the change of scene, but mainly because I just really wanted to spend time at the university with Christopher Marlowe, our celebrity guest character. I’ll be blogging a lot about Kit and Cambridge and other historical topics relevant to this story. If you have any wishes on that front, don’t hesitate to ask.


If you haven’t read Book 1, Murder by Misrule, I recommend you start with it. There’s a fun surprise in the last third that will be spoiled if you read book 2 first. You can’t spring the same surprise twice; not all Jacks can be put back in their boxes! That’s why Misrule is on sale until the end of the year.
