Welcome to the King’s Head!

Make yourself at home, dear visitor. Take a menu and a copy of our extensive cider list. No pub in Cornwall has quite so many ciders.

Three Things I Hope People Take Away from Salmonweird

Hello, it’s the author here. I thought I’d switch off the village voice for this blog post and talk as me for once. That is, instead of pretending to be an article written by a committee of scribes in a ghost village! I hope you’re enjoying the extra content here at salmonweird.co.uk either as an introduction to the books or as an expansion of the wider universe.

The Salmonweird Sea Shanty Playlist

Hello again dear reader! If you’ve read our book or any of our short stories, you’ll know how much Harry and some of the other residents love music.

The Village Ran Out of Coffee – You Won’t Believe What Happened Next!

No, don’t worry, the village did not run out of coffee though we are running very low on some of our favourite biscuits. The jam is also getting perilously close and the clotted cream is down to one last pot. On that note, we want to talk about a new development that you can use to help us top up the village coffers.

The Next Stages for A Salmonweird Sleighing

Dynnargh dear reader! thank you for sticking with us during these quiet times. It’s been over a year since the release of the first Salmonweird book and news has been thin on the ground.

I’m Pastor Eli, hello. Will we see you at the church?

I don’t know what Brother Jowan told you about me, but I assure you very little of it is likely true. That man exists purely to taunt me and he tells the other villagers lies about me all the time just to turn them against me. Luckily, most people don’t believe him. Every Sunday, my congregation is larger than his.

Hello, I’m Brother Jowan, the Priest of the Church here

Delighted to meet you, stranger. I was, perhaps for about 20 minutes, the Salmonweir resident who lived the the furthest back in time. I say for about 20 minutes because shortly after that I believe Kensa appeared. She’s the red haired woman over there with the sword. Oh, you’ve met? Fine, fine.

Is it an unusual name? It’s just Cornish for April. Oh thank you for saying it’s a pretty name. I don’t think I’ve ever thought about it but I’m glad you like it.

Did my father send you? Oh no? That’s all right then, I can relax a bit.
