Free Society of Gentlemen interlude (with catch)

It’s just a few days till A Gentleman’s Position publishes. This is the third book in my Regency ‘Society of Gentlemen’ trilogy, this one starring the highly principled Lord Richard Vane and his deeply unprincipled valet David Cyprian, and it’s going to tie up all sorts of things. Starting with Lord Richard’s conscience in knots. /evil grin/

We left the story in A Seditious Affair with radical bookseller Silas Mason moved into Lord Richard’s household; we pick things up a few weeks later in A Gentleman’s Position to see that Silas and Cyprian have struck up a friendship. So I wrote a special behind-the-scenes interlude, ‘A Confidential Problem’, about the, uh, challenging beginnings of that friendship, for a bit of insight into what was going on backstairs.facebook CP

‘A Confidential Problem’ is a 4,000 word scene which takes place between chapters 15 and 16 of A Seditious Affair (after Silas has gone down to Arrandene, but before the finale). It’s not standalone, and won’t make any sense if you haven’t read A Seditious Affair, but since that’s still ludicrously cheap at the time of writing, I’d get on that now if I were you.

The catch!

    I just now signed up for the newsletter when I saw that there was a new story, especially in the “Society of Gentlemen” trilogy, but no matter what I do, it just keeps asking me to re-subscribe. 🙁 What do I do? I really want to read it!

      Gah. You haven’t had a ‘welcome’ email with the links? Have you checked promo/spam folders? Come back to me if it’s not there and I will sort something out for you.

        I’ve not received a welcome email with links either. I signed up for the newsletter yesterday and thought perhaps it might just take a day or two? Perhaps not?

          Bah. I’m not sure what happened there, if it didn’t get caught in spam. Would you both mind posting your preferred format, and I’ll email you directly?

    A Gentleman’s Position is my favorite of the trilogy! Such a fantastic book, and I love the relationship between Richard and David! The interlude was wonderful as well. Will you write any more about the men of the Society series?

      Thank you! The main series finishes here (sadly, I loved doing them so much, it’s a bit gutting), but there will be a Christmas coda sort of thing.

        Oh that’s wonderful! All of your books have been so inspiring and beautifully written, but the Society series has really been such a treat to read! I’m excited to see the coda!

    So I’m engrossed in reading A Confidential Problem and read this: ‘David rolled his eyes. “God save me from men of principle.”‘

    Truly, I don’t know where I was except in 1820 in that room with David and Silas that I said to myself, KJ Charles would have written something like this.

    I burst out laughing and my daughter popped her head in my room to ask what’s wrong. ‘KJ Charles’, I told her. ‘KJ blooming Charles wrote this’. She gave me the 16 yr old look, that said, ‘really mommy?’

    KJ -you are simply the best at writing -do keep it up. Clearly you send readers to places they don’t even know they are.

    Hi, KJ

    I singed up your newsletter but didn’t get any emails. I’m a huge fan of “Society of Gentlemen” and I really don’t want to miss a single book from this series. If it’s not too much trouble, could you maybe send me a copy?

      I’m really sorry, the newsletter link seems to have gone squiff and I can’t work Mailchimp to save my life. I’ve put the story on the free reads section of the website!
