Just a quick reminder to you all that my first novel, The Ritual, is currently available for FREE (Kindle only), while my second novel is half price. Both special offers will last until Sunday.

Bible Project Part 14 – Isaiah 35 to Jeremiah 19

I’m hitting a bit of a low spot in my Bible Project. Frequent readers of this blog may say that the low spot started more or less in Genesis, but I’m really struggling at the moment. Why? Because Isaiah and Jeremiah are just so endlessly boring and repetitive. Which is saying a lot, considering the Bible is nothing but repetition. Continue reading

Book Three available for pre-order!

I am extremely pleased to announce that the final book in my Theft and Sorcery trilogy, The Coup, is now available for pre-order. The official publication date is the 1st of May, but you can order it now and it will be automatically delivered to your Kindle on the publication date.

UK readers can pre-order here:

US readers can pre-order here:


It is also available on all other Amazon sites. I would really appreciate it if people could spread the word, and if I get a decent number of pre-orders I might even get into the charts! (Even if that will probably be the Romance > Fantasy > Espionage chart which only has ten books in it, or something.)

In addition to this, to celebrate the release of this final part of the trilogy, the first book (The Ritual) will be available for FREE from 28 April to 2 May, and the second book (The Conspiracy) will be discounted during the same period. Links to both books can be found in the top right hand corner of this site.

Thank you for your attention/help/custom. If you go on to read my book, I sincerely hope you will enjoy it.

Bible Project Part 12 – Psalms 138 to Song of Songs 4

I’m still in the poetry section of the Bible (ish), and most of what I’ve read this week has been fairly disappointing. I was hoping for profound Solomonic wisdom from Proverbs, and maybe a few more gems in the last Psalms, but alas, it was not to be.

Cover reveal – Book Three

I am finally getting to a point where I feel the release date of my book is only a matter of weeks away. I have done my own full read-through and am in the middle of doing the edits for the eighty or so comments I noted down in the course of that. Two of my three beta-readers have finished reading, and much to my surprise they have both said it’s my best book so far. This pleases me, mostly because this has been the most difficult one for me to write.

And today my nephew finished off my cover, so without further ado, here it is:


I was originally going to have a grey cover, but then figured that’d be too drab, especially for a romance novel. These covers may be too simplistic for a romance anyway, but I like them. An earlier incarnation also had three wooden juggling balls rather than torches, but unfortunately they just looked like three wooden balls, with no context to show that they were juggling balls, so I chose juggling torches instead.

So there it is – I have a tentative publication date in mind, but I am still waiting on my third beta reader, so I’m not going to commit to it just yet.


Bible Project Part 11 – Psalms 1 to 137

I think this week will be short, because I’ve read nothing but Psalms, and there really isn’t much to say about them. There’s 150 of the bastards, and if the week had been five days I might have got through the whole lot of them, but it wasn’t to be. It’s all Jesus’ fault for dying on a Friday.
