Paperback writer!

Hello again, and I trust you all survived the rigours of Storm Agnes? Here in Angus the torrential rain and winds we experienced last night have been eclipsed by the good news that 'Sampson and Son' is now available as a paperback. Hurrah! - especially for those of us who like a tangible book to hold (and smell: there's nothing like a new paperback... except perhaps opening a new packet of tea...)

I do hope you enjoy the story, whether you read the paperback or the ebook - and please don't forget to post your reviews and comments here and/or on my facebook page. Thank you!

Sampson and Son is now available!



I am very pleased to inform you that 'Sampson and Son' is now available through Amazon as an e-book. The paperback edition will be out soon, and I'll update you as soon as that happens.

I'm also arranging a five day free book promotion for 'Sampson and Son' and I'll post the dates of that both here and on my Facebook page (Maggie Williams Richmond - Author) when I have them.

It will help me a lot if you will please leave a review on Amazon after you've read the story - or even while you're reading it. Many thanks in anticipation - and I hope you enjoy the story!

Cover preview: Sampson and Son

Just to whet your appetite, here are the covers of my forthcoming novel 'Sampson and Son', first the ebook and then the paperback... so you'll know what you're looking for when you go book shopping for yourself or for someone else! And didn't The William do a great job creating them?!

Sampson and Son

 Hello again!

Where did the summer go? Today is the Autumn Equinox, so back to chilly, windy, and wet - not that the last few months have been very different, with the exception of a couple of weeks at the beginning of this month... But I'm not here to talk about the weather!

Novum Publishing - who published Costly Truths and Course Adjustments last year - wanted to go ahead with the publication of Sampson and Son, followed by Present in the Past and Distant Lives... which was a lovely ego-boost - but I decided to try the self-publishing route which seems to be increasingly popular, especially among debut and newish authors like me.

The William offered to help with the 'grunt work' in preparing the manuscript, and I owe him a huge debt of gratitude for his sterling work, not only in formatting the text but in creating a wonderful cover.

So the good news is that Sampson and Son will soon be available from Amazon, either as an e-book or as a paperback. Hurrah! And hopefully Present in the Past will be out before the end of the year - perhaps in time for Christmas - and who doesn't enjoy finding a new book under the tree? (hint hint!) 🎄🤶

I've also just created a new facebook page which, like this blog, will be to do with my writing. You can find it by searching for Maggie Williams Richmond - Author at

If you've already read either or both of the first two books in The Ancestor Series, I'd be very grateful if you will please post a review either on Facebook or on Amazon - or, of course, both!

And please don't hesitate to get in touch with me either on my new facebook page (Maggie Williams Richmond - Author), or here, or by email:

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

p.s. I've just this week begun work on the sixth story in The Ancestor Series: The Maubry Inheritance - but don't worry. There's so much research to do into 13th-century Scotland that you have lots of time to read the first five before this one hits the shelves... And in any case, they can all be read as stand-alone stories.



Christmas shopping? Read on...

    A big THANK YOU to my wonderful publishing house, Steggr, for getting the paperback edition of 'Present in the Past' out in plen...
