Will you join me in an experiment in publishing fiction?

I’ve written The Cursing Stone, a 106,000-word historical novel about a legendary shipwreck off the coast of Ireland. I want to offer the novel in serial form to interested readers at no cost.

My article about the shipwreck of HMS Wasp is published in the July-August 2021 issue of History Ireland. The article is available in the print edition and to on-line subscribers. Why not treat yourself to a subscription to History Ireland magazine?

A recording of the launch of The Cursing Stone is posted on the Allingham YouTube Channel https://youtu.be/f5Wwb1AopIE
