Its a new year and a new web site.
I’ve got high hopes for 2015 not least of all because my debut novel ‘The Manservant’ comes out at the end of February. Excited doesn’t even begin to cover it.
Here is just a litle taster:
In this bitingly witty, saucy, acutely observed debut novel, Michael Harwood pulls back the damask drapes to reveal life among the modern aristocracy–upstairs, downstairs, and occasionally, behind stairs…
Anthony Gowers assists guests at a high-end London hotel with the kind of requests that can’t be filled from a room-service menu. His reward: lavish tips and a closet full of cashmere. Then a client’s after-hours entertainment ends in a tabloid scandal, and Anthony quickly becomes the city’s best-dressed unemployed person. . .
In desperation, Anthony takes a position in the countryside as personal butler to Lord Shanderson. As a former Royal footman, Anthony is well versed in the peerage’s peculiar ways. But Castle Beadale conceals an abundance of intrigue behind its stately doors. On the surface, Lord Shanderson is a model English gentleman–with a few personal interests that Anthony is sure the absent Lady Shanderson knows nothing about. But when the horrendously high-maintenance Lady Shanderson returns, tempers will flare, secrets will be exposed, and Anthony must decide whether the perks of privilege he’s enjoyed are worth the price he’s compelled to pay. . .
I don’t normally go in for New Years Resolutions but this year I’m making an exception.
I’m working hard on my second novel and I’ve resolved to have it finished by Easter so I’ll keep you posted along the way
