Lulu have announced a new promotional code SUPER20 which will bag you 20% off between now and midnight on Monday 10th March.

So, if you were thinking of picking up The Strange Case of the Missing Episodes, Requiem for Sherlock Holmes, the deluxe edition of Tales from the Moonstone Inn or, perish the thought, Fury from the Deep - A Relic of the Old Time, now's a good time to do so.

Book details: www.hiddentigerbooks.co.uk

The discount code works on all bar Kindle, which are discounted anyway!

A new promo code today, so anyone who is toying with the idea of picking up The Strange Case of the Missing Episodes, now is a jolly good time to do so...

You can save 20% with the code WAFFLESSAY20 (celebrating International Waffle Day - which my taste buds tell me isn't a bad thing to be celebrating...). This code should be entered at the checkout at Lulu (then click 'update').

It's also worth mentioning that the ebooks (bar Kindle) of three of my other books have been reduced to just 99p each (and the code will work on these, too) - namely Tales from the Moonstone Inn, The Theatrical Sherlock Holmes and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Mysteries and Adventures.

Bag yourself a bargain and thank a waffle! Wink

www.hiddentigerbooks.co.uk

Please note that this discount code runs out on Monday 31st March 2014 at midnight.

Great news about the new book, Alan. Will this one concentrate on the production side of the episodes?

That's the idea, but there's more to it than that. Smile

I'm a third of the way through Strange Case: fascinating and exceptionally well written. The introduction was first class and the plot summaries are exciting to read with the mix of dialogue and descriptive details. This book becomes more important given the fact that only 2 and a third episodes exist.

Thank you for your kind words, Rodney. Very welcome here.

If anyone's still not purchased a copy, there's a 20% discount code doing the rounds at the moment - JFS20 - which can be added during Lulu checkout.

Ah, it was you, Ron! Thanks.

Also, for some reason, unknown to me, The Strange Case of the Missing Episodes has, after pootling along with a sale or two a week for the last few months on Kindle, today sold 7 copies in one day. Unprecendented! We're not making any great profit from it, but it's nice to see the book getting out there!

I've enjoyed this great insight into Series One. I was particularly surprised by the ending of Toy Trap, when Steed and Keel are 'discussing' what Keel's friend Bunty had been through. Keel having tried his utmost (as he reassured his friend, her father) to look after Bunty, his reaction is understandable. It seems that in these tough cases there can be tough times in any partnership; very interesting indeed!

A heads up to say that this book and 'With Umbrella, Scotch and Cigarettes' will shortly be going out of print.

But it's good news, really!

A new book - 'Two Against the Underworld' - is nearly ready and this compiles and updates the material from the two books, and is enhanced with fresh content too.

Watch this forum for news... Smile
