Brexit in Context is an historically based analysis of why the UK voted to leave the EU. It was originally planned for publication on the first anniversary of the launch of the campaign on 20 February 2016, but has been delayed by health issues and is now due for publication by the end of May 2017. If the publication date is looking like the end of May then it might be held off for the anniversary of the referendum on 23 June 2017.

Latest addition to the website stable is Oneliners by Mercia McMahon, which consists of oneliners by Mercia McMahon, but on a smartphone it may take up more than one line.

Preserving Eternity has been withdrawn from sale as the planned trilogy of short novels is to become one long novel. It will also switch from a first person perspective to a third person one, which means that Preserving Eternity will be substantially re-written. The story of Preserving Eternity will remain the same, but it will be written from a narrator's point of view rather than that of the individual characters. The revised project is likely to appear in 2018.

MMMporium ebook pricing has been made consistent across all four books still available for sale at £4.99 or $6.99US. That pricing change is part of the reason for removing Preserving Eternity from sale and turning it into a larger text. Seattle in Shorts and Speaking of Men will remain as short novels, while the short stories Forgiveness and Make my Joy Complete have been withdrawn from sale, but may reappear some year as full length novels.
