Before the month is out we will have two more Flame Tree Press titles launching! Not only will we be seeing the international releases of both Night Shift and Think Your Self Lucky but also of The Sorrows from Jonathan Janz and Kosmos from Adrian Laing! In this blog post we are looking at both books and learning a little about their story and the authors behind them.

But its owner needs money, so he allows film composers Ben and Eddie and a couple of their female friends to stay a month in Castle Blackwood.

Kosmos by Adrian Laing
Rookie barrister George Winsome, young and arrogant, defends an old boy who thinks he’s Merlin on a manslaughter charge. The riotous trial turns Merlin into a celebrity; money, greed and ambition take hold of George and his partner Heather until the secret of Merlin’s past is revealed as the spirit of Saint Yves intervenes to ensure George and Heather follow their true paths. ‘Kosmos’ is a modern-day jury trial, a feel-good love story and a spiritual journey involving Saint Yves, Nemesis and Merlin.
