I’ve just complete three short stories from the ‘exploits’ of James Urquhart and Elizabeth Bicester which I will be publishing on Smashwords and Kindle on 9th of March. They recount three humorous spooky adventures at a ‘haunted mill’, a visit to Hartlepool and Whitby and a holiday in Cornwall.
Here is the intro.
Occasionally when James Urquhart and his Victorian companion Elizabeth Bicester were not travelling back and forth in time and visiting other planets his sister and her boyfriend Sean took them on holiday. One would think that such vacations would be a welcome distraction but you will see in the three adventures they have selected from their diaries they do not always turn out as expected for when your with Sean, strange things happen.
We put this down to his origins in Kerry which as everyone knows is where the fairies live. If you go to Kerry you know what I mean because when you leave a fairy comes with you. You won’t notice the difference at first because it will be invisible but as life goes on you will hear on the odd occasion from a friend “Oh he’s off with the fairies again”. This seems to happen more regularly as time passes. Suffice to say that Sean has been to Kerry many times and in the process gathered up many fairies.
My new sequel to my novel ‘Out of Time’ will be available on Smashwords and Kindle this week.
‘A Drift Out of Time‘ continues the adventures of James Urquhart, minor science lecturer and sometime rambler, living in 2015 and Elizabeth Bicester, lady of leisure of Hamgreen Lodge whom he stumbles upon at a cricket match in 1873.
After stopping a Martian invasion of Earth and ruining the Weber Institute plan to take over the world, James and Elizabeth have returned home for a bit of peace and quiet to find they are not only in a different future but a different aspect of themselves. Morover the Martians are still trying to colonise Earth after their failed invasion and Marco is loose in time trying to reconnect the interplanetary dark net to help them.
In their quest to get back to their own world James and Elizabeth travel back and forth between Mars and Earth and find themselves drifting across time and space through different pasts and futures until eventually they find a home and in the process discover who the Martians really are.
