No Man ebook for Haiti

No Man eBook for Haiti : I and other authors have contributed to an eBook called No Man, published by Little, Brown UK, and its publication marks the hundredth day since the earthquake occurred. There are stories by Alexander McCall Smith, Dorothy Koomson, Louise Candlish and Bernadette Strachan, among others, and all proceeds go to UNICEF’s Haiti Earthquake Children’s Appeal. It's for a desperately needy cause and everyone involved gave their services free of charge - the eBook costs just £4.99 from And if you've never downloaded an eBook on to your PC before, let me tell you neither had I. But it's simplicity itself. So give it a go.

Please, please, please buy and enjoy, while helping the victims of the earthquake.

Hi Karen,
This book is in a good cause for the Haiti victims and contains some excellent stories by professional short story writers that are worth reading. Mine is not one of them! I have never written a short story in my life - except for this one which went out originally in a woman's mag that wanted a slushy Russian story from me. My advice - skip it!

Hi Kate

I'm waiting eagerly for November now to purchase The Jewel of St Petersburgh!!

Iknow you probably want (and much deserve!!) a break after this but for Lydia and Chang do you think we will have a very long wait? Anything in the pipeline for this that we can find out about and wait eagerly for?

BTW Keep up the good work, you have written fantastic books - after reading all of them its hard to get started with another author as the writing styles differ so much!!

Hi Ruky,
I had a long chat with my publisher about this the other day - the continuation of Lydia and Chang's story - and at the moment they aren't keen for me to do another too soon. Their theory is that I will get pigeon-holed as a 'Russia' writer and they don't want that. My new book is set in Malaya. So it looks like I'll have to put Lydia on hold for a little while - but never fear, I'm sure I shall return to her in the not too distant future.
