With The Sword and the Rose Book 1 released eight days ago as an e-book, Luminosity Publishing provided me with two new three-year worldwide publishing contracts for books 2 and 3 of The Sword and the Rose series.
Embrace Amidst Orange Blossoms is scheduled for release as an e-book in October 2016, and in November this year Passionate Harvest is to be also released as an e-book.
As books have to be greater than 35,000 words to appear in paperback, and books 2 and 3 are under this threshold, Luminosity Publishing has agreed to combine both books under one cover to enable the stories to be available in print.

Meanwhile I have begun writing book 4 – Lady of Seville, and today I drafted out the plan for book 5. Although I have thought of a title for the latter I’m not going to announce it just yet as this might change.
There will be at least two more books after these in the series, but whether I’ll stop and move on to something else will depend on how popular The Sword and the Rose series becomes.
I will let you know as soon as I am given the dates of the print versions for books 1 to 3.
