Update..past present and future.
The story so far and the story to come. Or is that stories? After self-publishing the original edition of 'Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Horror' I gave little thought to following it up. I did continue to write shorter pieces which appeared on Holmesian.net from time to time. I was fortunate in that when I did elect to attempt another Lyme based Holmes pastiche I was able to gain a publisher in the guise of the excellent MX Publishing. As well as having the new novella 'Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Legacy' published along with shorter Holmes pieces ( and ghost stories plus a brief history of Lyme Regis) 'Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Horror' appeared in a new expanded 2nd edition. Since then, 'Holmes and Watson: End Peace has been published, a break from the norm in that it is not based in Lyme Regis and further, it is comprised solely of dialogue. I have been fortunate enough to garner some very good reviews for all these publications (more needed!!!!!). Currently in progress are 'Sherlock Holmes and the Scarborough Affair' and 'Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Trials' both around 15,000 words in and being written concurrently. 'The Scarborough Affair' is a collaboration with someone who cares not a jot for Holmes, has only ever read two of the original stories and has a thorough dislike of the character! Yet, the plot, synopsis, storyline, characters, setting etc are all hers and my input is a tiny percentage!! 'Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Trials' is likely to be the final Holmes/Lyme Regis adventure, there being a limit to how often I can bring the pair to a small town in Dorset. In between everything else I found time to select, compile two voulmes of assorted Holmesian stories/drabbles/poems, 'Tales From The Stranger's Room Volumes 1 and 2' proceeds from which go to The Beacon Society. Published very shortly now will be 'Sherlock Holmes and the Missing Snowman' achildren's illusrated book with excellent artwork by children's author and artist, Rikey Austin, really excited about the launch of this book, have a notion it will do very well. So that's what has happened, happening and will happen!
