Cerise Noire The latest novel by A.J. Sendall

Cerise Noire was published today. It's been a while since you've heard from me, in fact it's been a long while since anyone has heard from me. The reason is that I've been head down writing another book which I sincerely hope you'll read and enjoy. Cerise Noire is a mystery/suspense novel that will keep you guessing until the last few pages.Read the blurb here.In the past couple of months I've re-branded The Sydney Quartet with new covers and some slight textural changes…

Update – Sydney Underworld Quartet: Book Three

I’m currently working on the third book of the "In The Sydney Underworld" series, and would like to invite you all to visit my website and sign up for an ARC, if interested. The other two books in the series, Heather, and Flank Street were released in August 2014, and May 2015 respectively. Each book is stand-alone. They share locations and a few characters, and can be read in any order. Does that make it a series?

Kindle Countdown – Flank Street at 99 cents!

I didn’t set out to write about Micky, or Carol come to that. The rain was falling steadily, running down the small, below ground-level window, which is the only source of natural light in the boiler-room where I write. For some obscure reason it reminded me of a rain-soaked street in Sydney, Australia; a street I’ve walked down many times, both wet and dry. As I held that image in the back of my eyelids, a man appeared. Yellow streetlights reflected from the wet tarmac; he walked in the shadow of the plane trees, pulling his hood up against the unrelenting rain. He stopped, leaned against a tree, and waited. Right at that moment, I knew what I had to do.

Flank Street – The Sydney Quartet: Book Two

Flank Street was released today!   From the first word to the first sale has taken a bit over six months. It feels a lot longer, possibly because this was the first time in more than three decades I'd spent a winter in Europe; it seemed to go on forever. I missed the warmth of Australia and it's people. However, those long cold months of being house-bound with a log fire and pots of tea, were good for the writing process. I took…

Micky

Micky DeWitt is the main character and narrator from Flank Street. Micky is entirely fictitious, or as far as a character can be. When it comes to creating characters, we all draw on people who've crossed our paths, or influenced us in one way or another. I don't know who Micky is, or where he came from, but it started like this— Late one night, I was looking down a wet, tree-lined street, and spotted Micky walking in the shadows. After a while,…

Anger

April 1st, all fool’s day and the start of the April A to Z blogging challenge. Twenty-six days, twenty-six subjects. Sounds easy right? For those of us that sit and arrange words, and distil thoughts by day, it should be. However, I depend on my characters to show me what to write, to give direction to the plot. And so I’ve called on a few of them, and even a mutual friend or two to pitch in and make this next month…
