News: Thyme Running Out by Panama Oxridge (Tartan of Thyme Book 2)

These days, five years is a long time to wait for a sequel to a first-in-series book, but that is almost how long I have been waiting for the second book in Panama Oxridge's Tartan of Thyme series. I loved book one, titled Justin Thyme, and it became one of the first books I reviewed on The Book Zone back in October 2009. At the time it was out of print, but along came the wonderful people at Inside Pocket who thankfully managed to persuade Panama to let them publish it, and just a few hours ago Panama announced on his blog that the sequel, Thyme Running Out, will be published on 1st October this year - hurrah! I have put this date in my diary as for me this is one of the most exciting publishing moments of the year. As with the Inside Pocket edition of Justin Thyme, there will be a special launch at the Cotswold Bookstore where you will be able to buy signed copies of the book so keep an eye out on Panama's blog for more information about this coming soon. In the meantime , here is the front cover as illustrated by the Panama:


  1. Thank you for your kind words! I'm glad you're looking forward to TRO.

    I wonder if any of your regular readers noticed that, (several months ago), Bookzone was actually the first place on the internet to reveal the title of this new book. I left a hidden clue in your interview of me (when the JT hardback came out last year): the first letters of each of my replies to your 15 interview questions spelled "THYME RUNNING OUT!"

  2. To TBZ.
    What an excellent and enthusiastic welcome to Thyme Running Out.

    To PO
    Sir! You are a fiendish swine. No, of course I didn't see that one coming!

    Looking forward to the sequel as are most of my extended family, my friends and about 400 customers at our shop!
