This site is a place to find out more about the ideas behind the Hawley Lodge stories The Roman and the Runaway and The Viking and the Vendetta. It’s also where the author, A. J. Braithwaite, can share views and thoughts about the process of becoming an ‘indie’ writer and the ways in which the world of publishing are changing in the age of ebooks and instant publication.

It’s hard for indie authors to get attention, so this blog will also feature reviews of good books by other indies.
