  1. I can’t order books 1-8 in the Cambridge Fellows Mysteries series from Samhain any longer, but only 4 books #9 etc from Riptide. Any suggestions where to go for the 8 books? Thank you.

    1. Long story and complicated answer! The first 8 books were with the now defunct Samhain; you can get the first one in audio version. The others are contracted to another publisher and awaiting re-release. Books 8-12 are with Riptide and still available. There are various short stories on my free stories page of this website and I’ve just published a novella length story on Amazon.

      If that makes no sense or you need more help, please let me know.

      1. Thank you for replying. I think I get it. Either wait for the books to be re-released or search for the old copies in used bookshops.

      1. I am currently in the Middle East, though I have a US for mail. I prefer print copies due to migraines.

        On a related note, I wish so many authors wouldn’t make their titles an Amazon/Kindle exclusive. It makes things difficult for readers in other parts of the world.

    2. I sympathise ref Amazon – I’m intending to put my few self published works on other places, too, but haven’t had time to explore them yet. I also sympathise ref print, as I only read print versions. I have spare copies of some of the first 8 books but not all, alas.

      1. Do you have book.2 by any chance? I found book.1 but book.2 is going for ridiculous sums on Amazon.

  2. Having just finished Book 1 earlier today, I too am chomping at the bit for books 2 through 7! Maybe I will go buy the available ones from Riptide now in case they are unavailable later by some mischance. Love starting a new series… very impatient about waiting haha!!

  3. Just bought Lessons In Trust from Amazon today – so thrilled that its been reissued – now all I need to really make my life complete is the reissue of All Lessons Learned – any idea when, Charlie?

  4. Don’t just enjoy them – love them! You are such a clever and accomplished writer, Charlie, the world you conjure up for Jonty and Orlando and the various members of the Stewart clan is so well drawn and believable. And I like the little bits of silly stuff on the web pages too!

  5. Just bought ‘All Lessons Learned’!! That’s going to be my afternoon reading (snowing here, so nowhere better to go; no gardening to do) – I have a feeling I’m going to be a wet rag when I’ve finished it. Thanks so much, Charlie!

  6. Superb. Poignant, beautiful and, as Owen wrote, concerned with the Pity of War and how it affected the survivors. I take my cap off to you, Charlie, for all the hard work you must have put into researching the Great War, and for creating such a wonderful novel featuring two of my all-time favourite characters. (And I won’t attempt to charge your website for two boxes of Kleenex!)

  7. The photograph in Beattie’s room? I did wonder. I’m a fan too – my final dissertation for my degree was on imagery in Wilfred’s poetry. Thank you for your kind words, and all power to your pen!

  8. Hi Charlie, sorry to keep buzzing around your website like an irritating gnat, but I wondered if ‘All Lessons Learned’ is going to be available in hard format? At the moment, Amazon are just advertising the Kindle edition, but I would like to hold it in my hands, so to speak.
    Warmest regards, Bob
