I am reading ‘Spider Silk’ atm and really like it. Is the third book of the series still on? And if so are you able to say when it will be published?

waiting with bated … breath? for Peregrine. Any guess on it’s release date?

I’m working on it 🙂

Now it’s 02 January 2022 and still no third book in the Keeper of Pleas series.,,.,, any update on U.K. publication date, please? Oh and are the two leaf characters EVER going to admit their affection for each other?? Lol

I can’t remember if I sent this through before, if so I apologize for repeating myself. KoP has a nice little waiting list for it at the library. I am looking forward to #3.

You did! Thank you for letting me know, though. I’m so curious what they think. It’s strange to be listed in a “real” library or bookstore. Makes it more real. this author thing.

Thank you for your reply, Annelie. The silent-witnesses.com content is a very creative way of engaging your readers as well as a sneak peek at your writing process. Both of your websites (this one and the silent-witness) are artfully and professionally done… I’ll keep you as a writing and marketing standard in my mind :-), and possibly give the Reader Backstage Pass a try, as it sounds like a fantastic deal.

Hi Annelie, I am just getting into your Keeper of Pleas series (have found them by accident via reading reviews on Amazon) and so far have thoroughly enjoyed Book 1. The character of Mary is superb – “the iron fist in the velvet glove” – type of girl… I aspire to be writer myself and wonder how much time you roughly allocate to: a) researching; b) outlining/plotting; and c) first-draft writing – in any book project. Alina

Thank you, Alina! Time allocation depends on which stage the project is in. I do a lot of research before and while writing. I rarely begin with plotting, but let the characters do their thing first. At some point, though, I have to plot the crime itself, else it’s total chaos. You can watch the progress of the newest Anna Kronberg book over at silent-witnesses.com
Good luck with your writing!

Please, please keep me informed. Love your other Victorian novels and think, your writing is superb.

Thank you, Mary! Book #2 is in the making…

I am currently re-reading the two books I have, and (im)patiently waiting on the next. Please don’t leave it unfinished.

I won’t, I promise 🙂

Hello Annelie,

I’m a huge fan of your Kronberg stories and excited to read everything you write, Will this book be published only as an ebook and only in English or can I hope for a printed German copy?

Hi Carolin,
I’m working on the english print edition, and my German agent is now reading Keeper of Pleas. So with a bit of luck, a German publisher will pick it up and there’ll be a German edition in a year or two.

Hallo Annelie,

ich habe gerade den “Irischen Löwen” zu Ende gelesen. Wie schon einmal geschildert … Die Bücher der Anna-Kronberg-Serie sind die einzigen, die ich in der letzten Zeit in einem Rutsch verschlungen habe. Würde mich auch sehr über “The Coroner” auf Deutsch freuen.

So excited for this novel!!!
But is this supposed to be set before the other Anna Kronberg novels, and will our favorite characters be present? 😉

It’s set before all the Kronberg Novels (and before the Ripper murders). And it’s not a Kronberg story. Much gorier dissection scenes and darker, more complex characters than in my previous mysteries. You have been warned 🙂

Even more excited for the read now!!

But will there ever be more Anna Kronberg novels? I want to see what she and her child are up to… and if they meet with Sherlock again…..

I’ll read all that you write. I like the setting and time period. Something about the whole setting makes me want to read your books.

Annelie your website is great. I love getting the details on goes on in your world and how your keeping things rolling on your literature. Keep the stories coming. I like that you have the website with no adds and you make it all yours.

Thank you Bill 🙂

Ainslie, I love your website and your thrilling, thought provoking works! You are in my top five favorite authors of all time?


I’m going to drink to this. Cheers! *lifts glass of home-made cherry wine*

WOW!!!? This is going to be great!
