I am so pleased you like the stories. Great timing on your part, too. There will be an announcement soon, as Ava Curzon has now been commissioned as a trilogy. Part two is a whole new adventure, and I am having loads of fun with it! I am also thinking about writing some more of the short ghost stories. Thank you for the lovely review of The Voivod. I am thrilled that even in 2015 people still find an old fashioned ghost story creepy! All best wishes, Dominic (less)

Yes - absolutely! - I would love it if Ava's adventures became a TV series. Who knows. Maybe someone in TV will like the stories! Thank you again for your kind words. And I hope you enjoy some of the other books, too!(less)

Punctuation Without Tears by Dominic Selwood
"Punctuation not only without tears, but without fear of making terrible gaffes, leaving the writer to concentrate on his or her choice of words rather than the window-dressing.

Punctuation Without Tears by Dominic Selwood
"This was great! I finally understand semicolons! It's actually a funny punctuation/style guide with a few J.R.R. Tolkien and Star Wars references thrown in. This may be the first non-boring style guide written for the English language."

“message was also personal—a taunt, a challenge, maybe even an explicit warning, broadcasting his achievements and plans. She had absolutely no doubt he meant the message”
Dominic Selwood, The Sword of Moses

“quis custodiet ipsos custodes? But who shall guard the guards?”
Dominic Selwood, The Sword of Moses

“The Ark disappeared from history’s pages in 597 BC, when the armies of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon razed Jerusalem to the ground in one of the most cataclysmic events ever to befall the Hebrews.” “Babylon?” Prince frowned. “Wasn’t that in Mesopotamia or somewhere near there?” “Mesopotamia is modern Iraq,” Ava confirmed. “Babylon is about fifty miles south of Baghdad.” A silence fell across the table.”
Dominic Selwood, The Sword of Moses
