    I thought the book was great. Although it was not in my usual genre, I found myself lost and looking forward to every episode. There was a reference to a sequel at the end of the last episode. Is it available, or will it be available in the future? I did not find it when I searched. Looking forward to it.

    Thanks–Bill

      Glad you enjoyed the book, and thank you for taking the time to comment. The sequel takes Captain Blackwell and Mercedes into the Pacific waters and the world of early nineteenth century exploration, on a new personal and cultural adventure. I plan to have the sequel out next year, Fall 2013. Captain Blackwell’s Prize is now available in paperback and e-book formats.

    I have read many books from this period & thoroughly enjoyed this one-on my e-book reader during a recent holiday in Cyprus-& was looking forward to receiving the sequel for Christmas but,oh dear,I will have to wait until next year!Perhaps,a little overtime is called for!!!?Please keep writing-perhaps a series like Patrick O’Brian with an “Aubury like character”Thank you.Presumably,the sequel will,initially,only be available in hardback form as opposed to the e-book form?
    Regards

      Thank you for your comment, Bryn. I am hoping the sequel will be available in audio book, paperback, and e-book at approximately the same time next year. And noted, regarding the order to work overtime. There’s not a moment to lose.
