Not only is Coasting a finalist at EPIC; The Sapphire Sea will be released on November 1st after being delayed by three month dues to the shingles/neuralgia and I have signed a contract with Eternal Press for Home is the Sailor.

This is the blurb of The Sapphire Sea
She was old, bordering on obsolescence, under-powered and small. Her crew were the last scrapings of the barrel, a mixture of drunks, old hands and new chums, yet the Sapphire Sea carried as many hopes and dreams on her last voyage in the Timor Sea as the most modern of her cousins.
Join her in Singapore as she sets sail on her final charter. The crew won’t mind and you’ll glimpse a way of life experienced only by those who had the good fortune to live it.
There are excerpts from The Sapphire Set under its working title of Offshore and from Home is the Sailor​ in my excerpts file.
