For this weeks post, I’m happy to introduce Iain King, the author of Last Prophecy of Rome. This gives me new pins in England and Italy on the Pin a Book map!
I was curious about his views of the French, but it turns out the English just might have a more positive attitude than the French. It’s something I’ve never understood and after sixteen years of living in France, I’m still surprised every time a Frenchman dislikes the English on principle.

Wanting to meet other authors and discover other books where the setting is important to the story, I’ve decided to do blog posts where I interview authors – just a few questions turning around the setting of their book and France. I’ll also pin them and their books to a map, which you can find here.
For this very first post, I’m thrilled to introduce Alexander Hartung, the author of Until the Debt is Paid. Continue reading Pin A Book: Until the Debt is Paid by Alexander Hartung
Okay, it looks like the book is finally available in print. It’s available on Amazon (Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk). At the moment’s it’s displayed as “out of stock” because nobody’s ordered any yet. When you pass the order, they will order it printed, though. Please let me know if there are any issues.
I haven’t managed to get the book to show up correctly on Amazon.fr yet, but I’m working on it…
In theory, it’s possible to get a brick-and-mortar bookstore to order the book. They should easily find it through the ISBN (979-10-95707-00-4). If anyone tries it, let me know how it goes!
I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I’m enjoying a mix of Norwegian and French holiday food, as usual. Always take the best of all the available cultures!
Did anyone find an eReader under the tree? Need something to read? The Red Brick Cellars: A Tolosa Mystery is free today only (December 26th, probably Pacific time, so starting a little earlier in Europe). Here’s your chance to try my novel for free!
And for those of you who don’t read in English… Feel free to pick up a copy today anyway – it will be a great help.
This is all very scary for someone who spent most of her life being invisible on the net. First novel, first website, first post, all in one go.
My very first novel, The Red Brick Cellars, is available! The eBook is already on Amazon and the print should be ready pretty soon. I’ll let you know.
What’s it about?
A murdered mayor. A second body reduced to skeleton and dust. The public display so horrific that the police are baffled.
Everyone assumes uninterested heir Louis Saint-Blancat will finally settle down and focus on the politics of Toulouse, France. Louis becomes the center of attention in the press while his mother and sister pressure him to follow the family’s political tradition when all he wants is to track down his father’s killer, then return to his globe-trotting lifestyle.
Determined to ferret out the story behind the perplexing assassination that took place at the very center of Toulouse to advance her career, struggling English journalist Catherine Marty finds an unlikely ally in Louis.
Will the two sleuths discover what is lurking beneath the apparent congeniality of la Ville Rose?
