Advance Review Copies of BRAVO VICTOR

Jemima has finished final editing and we are now able to supply advance review copies of Bravo Victor as pdf files (although without the chapter illustrations).

If you can commit to providing a fair review on your blog and on Goodreads and Amazon by mid-May we would be delighted to send the pdf, and the ebook once it is published. 

Coming in May, Book 6: Bravo Victor. Our young bartender has grown up and is trying to make his way as a business guru. He encounters a shady traveller and seeks advice from King Fred, who sends him on a mission to aid the mysterious Sundance and his beautiful accomplice, and to find Fred’s brother, George, overdue after a visit to a flying festival in the Rhinelands. Victor tells how he uncovers a tangled web of lies and deceit, and an old friend from the past, or is it his future?

This is the sixth book in the series, and brings together some of the loose ends from books 1 and 4, mixing in some of the underlying developments in the Princelings world from books 3 and 5 as well.  We hope that it can stand on its own, but we recommend that you've read 1-4 to get the most from it.

Just leave a comment below and we'll get in touch with you.

First Book Reading Video

Jemima has created her first book reading video.  It is now on YouTube at http://youtu.be/E88nJUMNV_U.

The duration is ten minutes, and it covers part of Chapter 4 of the Princelings of the East, where Fred and Hugo have arrived at the Inn of the Seventh Happiness and Hugo has just gone to chat to Prince Lupin of Buckmore.

Other than George, most of the key people in the series are in this short clip - and we also hear about Wozna cola for the first time.  I hope you enjoy it, and feel free to give feedback, on technical as well as artistic issues.  It's the first reading and the first video Jemima has ever done and uploaded, so all help is gratefully received.

Read an E-Book Week 2014

March 2nd to 8th is Read an EBook Week and once again some of Jemima Pett's Princelings of the East series ebooks will be free or at ridiculous discounts.


It may surprise you to know that the fastest growing use of ereaders is in Africa and Asia - specifically in poor communities that cannot afford books.  As western technophiles upgrade from one eReader to another, second hand ones find their way to communities who can make very good use of them.  The key partner in this is the non-profit organisation Worldreader.  You can read more about the work they are doing, and their new programme in conjunction with the UN Refugee Agency in this article. If you've got an old kindle that you no longer need, you can donate it to the Worldreader program.  Check the REBW facebook page for details

See the Princelings of the East series here and click through to get the discount code for each of them.  The books in the Trilogy are free and The Traveler in Black and White and The Talent Seekers are half-price at $1.50. Check out all the other great books on offer too.
