Not much to celebrate on publication day, except to be reminded of Shakespeare’s words, “For we will live, and laugh at this hereafter”. My best wishes to everyone. 📚📖 #shakespeareweek #reading #lovebooks...
I’m working from my home in Cambridge rather than Mallorca where I would normally be at this time of year. A very different view from my desk, but just as peaceful. First task, editing the final proofs of Hidden in Plain Sight, which is out in October. The first book in the series, Nothing Ventured, is out in paperback tomorrow, and I do hope it will cheer you up in these troubled times. https://www.panmacmillan.com/authors/jeffrey-archer/nothing-ventured/9781509851300 Best wishes to all my readers and followers. 📚☕️ #reading #workingfromhome...
My Danish publishers @lindhardtogringhof have sent me these fantastic updated covers for Kane &.Abel and The Prodigal Daughter- wow. Hope you like them as much as I do. Out in April. #reading #lovebooks #danish...

We both have huge admiration for NHS staff for their professionalism, dedication and organisational skills. Thank you Mary for the photo of the garden on the first day of Spring! JA ...

If you're looking for something to watch while in isolation, I recommend a brilliant French comedy on Netflix - Call My Agent. I’ve been watching it between writing sessions and salute not only its wit, but the very fine acting that goes with it.
Calling local pubs, takeaways & supermarkets - would you consider donating your remaining stocks to turn into meals for @CUH_NHS staff? ** Please do not attend the hospital with offers of food or anything else). Email email@example.com**
I had been saving #NothingVentured for a rainy day...guess a #pandemic counts. Incredible book @Jeffrey_Archer but best of all I felt like I was visiting with a dear friend. Thank you for 25 yrs of friendship & stories. I especially needed you now. Keep well!
