On Facebook we recently ran a survey to see which authors Martha fans would compare her to.  There were some interesting answers ranging from high literature to mass market fiction and from authors rooted in Ireland to authors from the deep south in America. What do you think?  Do you agree with these or would you add some more:

Thanks for taking the time to let us know what you think.

An Evening with Martha Long at the Workman’s Club in Dublin was a roaring success. Thanks so much to everyone who came. Shame on the people who reserved tickets and didn’t turn up preventing other fans from getting tickets! There are some wonderful photos on the Facebook page, Bestselling Author Martha Long, so check if you’re in there and tag yourself so we know who you are. On the night Martha announced the seventh and final book in the series will be about Jackser dying and a huge cheer went up among the 200 odd people who were there. It will be launched in Dublin, same time, same place (we hope!) next year. Meantime if you’d like a Martha signing near you just holler. We can’t promise anything but it was the number of people asking to see here from Dublin which prompted that event so maybe we can fit another signing in before Christmas if there is enough demand.

Official pub date of Book 6 in the series is tomorrow, 6 September, but the book will be launched in Dublin next Wednesday 12 September at The Workmans Club so fans on the guest list hoping to get their book signed by Martha will be able to buy books there. Interesting to see who gets a copy first and by what means. Post here as soon as you get your hands on a copy and let us know how you got it!

What do you think? Just read On Canaan’s Side by Sebastian Barry then realised there was an earlier book featuring the same characters. Partly excited to read more about them, partly frustrated not to have read the first one first. Have you read the Ma books in order and if not has it made a difference? What was it like discovering the first one?
