Sony: Books are shipping, but the process is slow. Will let you know as soon as I see one there! Formats for Sony readers can be purchased from Smashwords

I am taking a much-needed vacation (sort of)--will update my website and send out my newsletters soon (follow links on http://www.gardnermysteries.com/  to sign up for the newsletter).

Updates for Ashley Gardner

A Body In Berkeley Square (Captain Lacey Book 5) should be available this week (in the next few days--watch this space for an announcement).

A Covent Garden Mystery, the last of the backlist books will come out early August (or last week in July, depending on how quickly the edit-proof process goes).

I am working on A Death in Norfolk, with plans to publish that in early September.

After that, I have three more Lacey novels in the works, but the one per month schedule will slow--because I need time to write the books and make them good. I'm thinking one every 2-3 months, but I'll let you know as things go on if that's realistic.

Tentative titles:

A Disappearance in Drury Lane
The Alexandrian Affair
Death of an Only Son (or Murder in Grosvenor Square--have not decided yet).

You will find out much more about the pasts of Marianne, Grenville, Mr. Denis, and of course the acerbic Lady Breckenridge.

Thanks again for the support for this venture. The good Captain will continue!

The Necklace Affair is Out!

At last--a brand new, never-before-published Captain Lacey story! The Necklace Affair is now available.

Find it on:


and in various formats on Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/64839

(It will eventually be loaded to other vendors via Smashwords--that takes time, but Smashwords makes it downloadable in many different formats. It is an ebook only at this point, but it will be bundled with another book when the books get re-printed).

The Necklace Affair began as a story I started one day on jury duty. It sat unrevised on my computer for years. (I had the vague notion of sending it to Ellery Queen magazine or some such, but life got in the way.) I found it while going through the files to prepare to re-release the Lacey books and write new ones.

I rewrote, revised, and expanded the story to a ten-chapter novella (remnants of the original jottings I did in the jury waiting room are still there).

The story falls between the events in The Sudbury School Murders and A Body in Berkeley Square (which will come out in July).

I might do a few more novellas, but my priority is the full-length novels. I am hard at work on A Death in Norfolk, which will come out after Covent Garden Mystery is re-released.

I hope you enjoy this interum story. It represents, to me, a great triumph in getting the Lacey books moving forward again!
