Nice 'observation' - thanks Richard!
"With Jesamiah, Tiola, Rue and yes,
even Finch (I LIKE Finch - please don't kill him off!!!) you have created
characters in the style of Sharpe, Uhtred, Hornblower and Bolitho who are there
at historical events but are all entirely fictional. It is a little niche you
have created for yourself - most naval fiction is based on the Napoleonic wars
and gets a bit 'samey'. I think what I am trying to say is that I (and so many
others) want MORE! And we want it as soon as is humanly possible!! This is the
sign of a great series - when you can't wait for the next instalment to come
and the next instalment will be out very soon!
