Attic Whispers from the Blue Mountains [March 2024 Edition]

March 2024 Newsletter


Autumn Greetings from my attic in the Blue Mountains!


In our garden here in the Blue Mountains, autumn is definitely on its way. Cool nights, crisp mornings, and the maple leaves changing colour are the first signs of the season changing. Here, let me show you:

Autumn is a wonderful season when nature rewards us with a stunning display of colour that makes all the hard work of maintaining a large cool-climate garden like ours worthwhile. 


Up here in the attic, my publishing team and I have not been idle. You will be pleased to hear that we have some great projects planned for 2024, and there’s no better way to start a new project than presenting something new and exciting I know you will find useful and enjoy, my friends: 

a FREE gift and token of my appreciation for your wonderful support and encouragement which has made 2023 such a successful year.


Announcing the release of:

The Jack Rogan Mysteries Literary Companion



So, what is this literary companion all about, I hear you ask? Well, in essence, it’s a unique guide to the Jack Rogan Mysteries Series that has captured the hearts of thousands around the world.


Because I listen to you and value your opinion, it has recently become clear to us from your many comments, questions, and suggestions that your reading experience of the series which now consists of eight books and four related novellas, could be substantially enhanced by a literary guide that would help you navigate this huge body of work of more than 4500 paperback pages, and 450 characters. My publishing team and I have been working on this for more than a year now and have considered many options and suggestions to make this possible. Well, this is what we have come up with:


Your FREE Jack Rogan Mysteries Literary Companion, an exclusive guide and secret roadmap to the mysteries and marvels of this award-winning series awaits. Whether you are a dedicated reader familiar with some, or all of the books in the series, or a newcomer opening one of the pages for the first time, it matters not. I am confident that you will find this literary companion not only entertaining but helpful in unlocking a richer and more satisfying reading adventure.


Imagine a guide that helps you unravel hidden character secrets and discover historical insights that bring each page vividly to life? Picture yourself delving into complex mysteries that bridge the past and the present in unexpected ways by stepping behind the scenes of tales that are as intellectually stimulating, as they are emotionally engaging. 

This carefully structured companion offers an exclusive glimpse into the creative process behind the storylines, introduces you to a rich tapestry of characters, and provides historical context that will enrich each story, and a lot more.


My Book Launch Team has already had a close look at the literary companion and has provided helpful ideas and suggestions which we have incorporated into the final, revised version. Here’s one review by a dedicated reader I would like to share with you now because it provides a reader’s perspective which you may find helpful:

Review of The Jack Rogan Mysteries Literary Companion 


Gabriel has crafted a very compelling literary companion for readers of any of the Jack Rogan mysteries. One particularly intriguing section is devoted to the villains of the stories. 


Gabriel Farago writes:


“All of my villains are very different. Because each of the books in the Jack Rogan Mysteries series ‘stands alone’ and can be read as such, each story is self-contained; the villains rarely ‘carry over.’” Of one of his villains he wrote “But his eyes never smiled. They observed, radiating ruthlessness, cunning and danger.” What a delicious impression!


When reading the literary companion, one almost feels as though Farago is sitting close by commenting to a friend about how he crafts his novels: “Once again, I reveal this character step by step, to create curiosity, and show the different, fascinating aspects of this complex man. One of the most effective ways to do this is to present the character through the eyes of someone else, preferably someone who is meeting this character for the first time.” 


One could be forgiven for suspecting psychological manipulation of readers when GF explains: “Mystery and suspense are very effective ways to arouse curiosity, and curiosity, by definition, is the desire to find out more. In short, curiosity makes the reader turn the pages.” But he does this so well we are moved to forgive and to enjoy the whole experience.


In short, I can warmly recommend this book for readers who enjoy the Jack Rogan experience.
