Here it is, people. My new horror from Hellbound is now available in paperback and on Kindle. It's a good one if I do say so myself. Feel free to spread the word, leave a review and all that. Books live and die on their reviews, so any help would be much appreciated.

The third and final part in my Lovecraftian action horror series is now available. Writing these three books has been way too much fun and while it's sad in a way to be done with the tale, I'm very happy to have them out in the world. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did writing them. And don't forget you can still get the first two for a low price. Links below.

Thrilled to say that the prequel to The Mirror Of The Nameless is now out in paperback and Kindle (for the bargain price of 77p for a limited time). I've had so much fun with these books and can't wait for the third and final part to be out hopefully late summer. So, here's The Day Of The New Gods. Remember, that low price won't stay forever, so get it while it's cheap.

2020 is on its way out and I doubt many people will be sad to see the back of a pretty awful year. 2019 was a nightmare for me on a personal scale while this year. . .well, if you're still here, you know the score.
Three of my books went out of print which was a big downer, to be honest. More so because I'd started work on a new tale connnected to two of those books. On the plus side, I reprinted one (The Mirror Of The Nameless) and am a couple of months away from reprinting the second with the final one following later.
I also got back into writng short pieces after leaving them for a while. I've currently got fifteen out on submission so hoping for good news in the next few weeks or months. I had two new books published (Pandemonium and The Kindred) which was sweet even if the first one came out the same week Covid meant the UK went into a national lockdown so it sank without trace.
Going into 2021, I've got the two books connected to Mirror coming along with my crime/horror Winter Graves from Hellbound. Next week, I'm starting work on a brand new book which I'm really excited about. I've often mentioned changing angles with my fiction to keep things fresh; with that in mind, this one is potentially looking like a horror/thriller rather than out and out horror. I'm also coming at it without a detailed outline. First time I've done this in best part of twenty years. Again, keeping it fresh. Or it's a terrible idea and the whole thing will crash and burn 20k in.
Lastly (and going back to the books connected to Mirror), I have the cover ready for the prequel. The Day Of The New Gods will be re-released in April. These three books are my Friday night with a few beers type books. OTT, violent, action horror. I describe Mirror as Mad Mad meets Lovecraft. Day is Lovecraft meets The Long Good Friday. I've had a blast writing all three which I hope comes across in the books.
Anyway, keep going, people. We're in for some bad times but we have to hope we can get through them bruised, not broken.

Here it is, people. The Mirror Of The Nameless is back to life in paperback and Kindle. It's been revised and expanded from the original release with around 10k of extra words which means more scenes, more horror, more good stuff. The Kindle edition is only 99p (or not much more depending where you are) and the paperback isn't too pricey, either. The prequel, The Day of the New Gods, will follow early next year along with the third and final part in the series - The Nameless. I've had a lot of fun with these books so hopefully, that's come across in the finished tales. And I'm sending out my newsletter this weekend with a cheeky look at the book, so sign up here:
Anyway, here we go.
For thirty years, three monstrous gods have ruled over the planet and turned it into a living nightmare. Dave Anderson knows the only way to avoid being sacrificed to the gods by the authoritarian government is to keep his head down and ask no questions. But now, his teenage daughter Ashleigh has discovered that there may be a way to vanquish the world’s terrible rulers. Hidden in a long dead writer’s fiction, clues have sent her on a life or death mission to a legendary weapon which can open the way to another world.
Pursued through a burning hellscape by a lawless group of killers intent on offering him to the gods, Dave is running out of time to find Ashleigh and save her soul as well as her life. But even as he battles his way through the blood and terror, Dave is yet to discover the gods will wipe out everything before they let him find the door to other worlds. Because they know what lurks on the other side of that door. A horror that dwarfs their evil a thousandfold.

Here it is - my new one is published today in paperback and Kindle. The Kindred is possibly my darkest book and I'm oddly proud of the fact a literary agent passed on it because 'it's too dark to publish'. Anyway, link below. Hope you like. And feel free to spread the word.

Been busy with the new book and the new job lately (along with the collapse of the entire planet), so very little time for blogging. Cry your pardon. Anyway, good news my end - I've signed a contract on a new book from Hellbound Books. Following The Kindred at some point hopefully soon, Winter Graves will be out next year. It's more of a crime horror than my usual stuff, but as I keep saying, horror is a massive area with a lot of room to play in. Plus I like to keep things fresh with my writing.
So, over to the cover blurb to give you an idea what to expect:
While the worst winter to hit Britain for decades paralyses the country, a brutal killer is targeting teenage girls. Beside a lonely stretch of river, Jimmy Marshall witnesses the first murder take place. Powerless to stop it, Jimmy tells himself there was nothing he could have done. But now a second victim has been discovered. And a third. The police suspect Jimmy knows more than he’s saying and the criminal family of one of the girls want answers by any means necessary.
As Jimmy desperately tries to uncover his connection to the violence, the anniversary of another terrible event is rapidly approaching in the howling winds and the blizzards. Born in the snow and the ice, something monstrous connected to Jimmy’s past is reaching a grasping hand into his present.
Caught in a hell twenty years in the making, Jimmy has three days to find an inhuman murderer before the white of a nation’s winter runs red with blood.
That's it for now. Be good. Be safe.
