Great news about Pat’s books:
Before the Ballybucklebo series, Pat wrote two novels about “the troubles” in Northern Ireland. The titles are Pray for Us Sinners and Now and In the Hour of Our Death. He also wrote a volume of short stories about the troubles called Only Wounded.
Unfortunately, now these are only available second hand at ridiculous prices. The good news is that Pat’s publisher, Tor Books, has just bought the rights to these works and will begin publishing them next year!
These books are very different from the Ballybucklebo stories. They are a lot darker, of course, since they deal with issues of war. But Pat’s writing is always masterful. We’ll let you know more about them as the pub date gets closer.
In the meantime An Irish Country Wedding is only 3 weeks way!–Erin

Thank you, Canada! Erin here. We’ve just learned that the trade paperback version of A Dublin Student Doctor will be #2 on the Globe and Mail bestseller list this week! AND Pat’s publisher is going back to print on the book because they are running out of copies! We’re thrilled that the book is doing so well. Thank you, Readers!
And Pat’s new book, An Irish Country Wedding, is less than a month away from being published. It’s an exciting autumn for us!
