Silk Thief Sent To Betas

It is with great relief that I can say The Silk Thief has gone to beta readers. I'd love to be able to say that I won't think about the novel for the next month but we both know that's not going to be the case. I shall be wondering whether they like it or not, whether the plot worked or not, whether they got all the in jokes... or not. Hmm. Could be a long month.


The Silk Thief release on 4th June and you can pre-order your Kindle copy by clicking here.

In case you missed my earlier post revealing the blurb, here you go:

Fourteen, heir to the Empire of Roshaven, must find a new name before Theo, Lord of neighbouring Fidelia, brings his schemes to fruition.

Not only has he stolen Roshaven’s trade, but he plans to make Fourteen his own and take her empire in the bargain.

Her protector, Ned Spinks, is plagued with supernatural nightmares whilst his assistant, Jenni the sprite, has lost her magic. 

Can they figure out how to thwart Theo’s dastardly plan before it’s too late for his city and her empire? 


The Silk Thief is the second quirky magical mystery adventure set in the Roshaven series of humorous fantasy novels. If you like the wit and humour of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, then you’ll love The Silk Thief.

"But I haven't read the first book!" I hear you cry. Not to worry. The Rose Thief is available in paperback and ebook everywhere - just click the book cover below to get your copy.

Someone is stealing the Emperor’s roses and if they take the magical red rose then love will be lost, to everyone, forever.

It’s up to Ned Spinks, Chief Thief Catcher, and his band of motley catchers to apprehend the thief and save the day.

But the thief isn’t exactly who they seem to be. Neither is the Emperor.

Ned and his team will have to go on a quest; defeating vampire mermaids, illusionists, estranged family members and an evil sorcerer in order to win the day. What could possibly go wrong?

The Rose Thief is the first quirky magical mystery adventure set in the Roshaven series of humorous fantasy novels. If you like the wit and humour of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, then you’ll love The Rose Thief.


I'll update you in April with the beta reader feedback - cross your fingers!
