This rolling news article is a permanent resource for announcing forthcoming publications by Mercia McMahon. A book on the historical context to the UK vote to leave the European Union was to have been published on 20 February 2017, but Mercia McMahon's long-term health problems have disrupted the schedule. The book might appear in April or possibly May. The focus will then turn to re-writing Preserving Eternity and the planned volumes 2 and 3 of the Fumetsu Cycle as a one volume standalone non magical fantasy set in an alternate feudal era Asia.
Preserving Eternity has been withdrawn from sale as the planned trilogy of short novels is to become one long novel. It will also switch from a first person perspective to a third person one, which means that Preserving Eternity will be substantially re-written. The story of Preserving Eternity will remain the same, but it will be written from a narrator's point of view rather than that of the individual characters. The revised project is likely to appear in 2018.
