Very curious - the page for "Hurly-Burly" tells me it's number 86 in the AH bestsellers. But go to the list of bestsellers and position 86 is held by one of the "Sharpe" books!
Alternative book universes anyone?

With this record, I'm expecting to see Drake's Drum still on Bestsellers by the time tranche eleven comes along!
The S.L.P. titles art has been finished. Yet to photograph it and upload it. As an encore, drawing rows of all the series in the eighty-one titles, with spaces left blank for the as-yet-unpublished. From the categories on the "Our Books" page, I count twenty-five books which are series, counting the most recent books which are the first part instalments of a series, the total is up to thirty books. How many series, though?

I can only speak for myself:

Six East End Boys forms a series (Six East End Boys; Tales From Section D; More Tales From Section D; Apostles of Section D; Reports from Independent London). The first two are published. More Tales is being redrafted, Apostles need significant reworking before it's ready, and Reports needs finishing. There are several other potential spin-offs.

Bring Me My Bow forms a series (Bring Me My Bow; Burning Gold; Arrows of Desire; Chariot of Fire; plus others). The first has been published. 2 and 3 are under consideration. 4 is nearing the end of first draft. There are many other potential spin offs, such as the Misadventures of Millicent.

Return of King Arthur may well have a kind of sequel. Alternate myths can be quite extensive.

That's my plan, at any rate. What happens is another matter.

Just caught up on this very helpful discussion. Big thanks to those guys who were posting the positions!

Many thanks to Omund the Wooden leg. I really appreciate your interest and encouragement.

I'm not surprised "The Boy in the Storm" is a bestseller, the way it's hooking me. The backstory seems more interesting than the "race-against-time" between the Americans and the Nazis over our two Boltonians.
