What's coming in 2012: Chris Quinton

Welcome to my wonderful friend CQ AKA Chris Quinton for whom 2011 was a very good year!

Coming Soon 

Fox Hunt - February 1st from Manifold Press
Rob is cleaning two Elizabethan portraits. But other people want them and one will stop at nothing to own both panels. Fox wants them back, and he, too, will stop at nothing. The inevitable clash will endanger Rob and his family, but as he grows closer to Fox, there's even more at risk for him - his heart. More here>>

Sullivan's Yard - February 4th, A Sparkle from Silver Publishing
Cal Beaufontaine, trainee chef, is starting his career at the Alhambra in Modesto. He doesn't want the attention of the local super-stud, but Luis is determined to win him. Cal has other problems. He's hearing things - voices that drove the previous tenant in his apartment to wholesale destruction. More here>>

Paradox - somewhen in 2012 from Silver Publishing
Phil is trapped in a coma, and he's sharing a parallel life. Centuries ago, someone is trying to kill Caius Marcellus Niger - Phil must find out who and why. He appears to be alone, but nothing is the way it seems.

In my head…

On my To-Do List - and believe me, I'm trying to keep these in order with a whip and a chair.

Top priority is Fool's Rush - first refusal to Manifold Press - this is the last of The Fool's Odyssey, my vampire trilogy and I *must* get this finished in 2012!!

Xavi is hired to trace the true owners of the gold found in the crypt of San Pedro-by-the-Wall, but it's a tangled and dangerous web. Andreas is there for him--which is not always a comfort.

Then, in no particular order, there's:

Bennett's Folly, which I'm co-writing with RJ Scott [a lot] later in the year. It's set in the same town as Riding For A Fall [see below]

How to turn a failing farm in the heart of England's West Country into an unusual going concern in one not so easy lesson. Sceptical neighbours, half a dozen bison, a piebald pony with an attitude problem and a belligerent tom turkey, are the least of Jason Bennett's problems.

Riding For A Fall - which I'm aiming for Silver's Fathers' Day call *if* I can keep it under 15k

Luke Petrie is back home in Fordingbridge, running the family bookstore. His ex-wife is about to go abroad for a lengthy period, so his young daughter comes to stay. Which is great as far as they are both concerned. Luke has no romantic interest in his life, until he reconnects with the first boy he crushed on. The trouble is, Steve is no more interested in him now as he was then.

And the others are further down on the To Do List
  • Finders, Keepers 
  • Oil and Water - the sequel to Aloes and first refusal to Manifold Press 
  • Spiked 
  • Cause and Effect 
  • The Carandor Interface 
  • The Lennox Selkie 
  • Tribulation 
  • Amethyst 
and sundry other wisps of ideas not yet solidified into a plot line.
