"A Scottish Wind in the Willows on high end skunk."

"I enjoy Kate's stories..."
"A fun and spooky read..."

"The characters are so involving and
loveable that you do want them to really exist. It does read like you've
stumbled across someone's long lost diary from and alternate timeline/universe.
I quickly got into the story and loved every second of reading it...
total gem of a read by an author who deserves a lot more recognition."

Five star review on Amazon

detail from sea penguin painting by barry nicol all rights reserved
A five star review has just appeared on for the first of my series of four e-books. 
" can even smell salt of the Sea of the Hebrides..."

(No, it's not been written by a friend or anyone I've asked!  I should get on that actually....)
Here's the link.

A previous review in Scottish literary magazine Northwords Now (in Spring 2011) said the tales (which hadn't yet at that time been published as e-books) were " a fun and sometimes spooky read". 

Please be aware that you don't need a Kindle or an e-reader to read these.  When you order one you can download a FREE app. to your PC, phone, whatever that enables you to read.
That's what I did anyway, as I don't possess an e-reader.  Only problem I've had with it is, I had to re-install it twice, but it was very easy.

Soup made from the blood of our victims

This is just number one in an upcoming series  "how to dispose of your victims".

Liquidise them, make them into soup, and "enjoy".  Note the garnish of black bits floating on the top.

Map of the Week

This is a detail from a map I bought from the National Library in Edinburgh recently.  It's a reproduction, obviously - a copy of Blaeu's Extima Scotiae, 1654.  The kind of map that gave me ideas for the original Sea Penguin characters and location.
