Delayed – but got there

In my last post, I mentioned how I was homing in on the 60,000-word mark and expected to pass that figure the following day. Well, it was three days late, but I got there. Apologies for the delay. I became distracted with lockdown and the scandals surrounding a certain election,

CLOSING IN ON 60,000 WORDS

The Hunted Angel is developing. According to Microsoft’s ubiquitous word processor, Word, the overall word count currently stands at 58,381 words. It will be higher later today, of course, and may pass the 60,000-word barrier tomorrow.

Hunted Angel On Track Again

My seventeenth book, currently entitled The Hunted Angel‘is under way properly at last. I began writing it soon after the previous Rutter book, The Secret Angels, was published in 2018. I had to shelve it when I reached the 30,000 word mark because I discovered that I was not writing one story,

The Kindle and paperback editions of each book are supposed to be listed together on my author page, so a simple click on the link in this site will take you to that book’s entry,
