A while back I did a couple of short stories, about Orion, Ogre and Sapphire.

I’m having a go at combining those stories and adding to them and making it into a novelette.

Funny term, novelette… had an interesting discussion about it the other day…

Anyway, I digress.

I have tentatively titled the novelette ‘Knighthawks’. I even did up some cover art.



I’m a long way from finished with the story, but I like how the cover came out.

Thanks for reading.

Outsider: Deliverance

I started this blog to write about my book writing and publishing experiences.

Funnily enough, I haven’t had many lately…! But, that’s about to change again.

I received back my last bit of feedback from my most excellent proof-readers last night.

Once done, I uploaded all of the files to make Outsider: Deliverance available.

It’s pretty exciting!

I was also pleasantly surprised; the process only took a few hours this time. The first time I did it, it took days of trying to work out coding errors with e-pubs, file sizes of cover pictures, picture quality, etc…

I hope I haven’t missed anything…!

I guess, that is what the quality control part of this will be about; checking the proof copy and making sure its right.

Can’t wait!

Here is the front cover:

Outsider: Deliverance

Outsider: Deliverance


And here is the blurb:

“How long must this continue, Outsider? You who cannot die, and I who am already dead?”

THE KINGDOM OF SYRANE: A land of magic, myth and adventure.

For Duncan Hawkwind, The Outsider, it’s a prison.

Duncan continues his search to find a way home, to Earth. The key is the Sphere of Corruption in the Temple of Mergoth. However the spectre of an old enemy who seeks the sphere and its power turns Duncan’s conquests into heartbreak.

Faced with an impossible choice, Duncan realises that life is not fair.

But neither is death.


Thanks for reading!



Outsider: Deliverance

Hello folks,

It’s been a while since an update on the new book…!

Outsider: Deliverance

Outsider: Deliverance

For a number of reasons, Outsider: Deliverance has been delayed… But I’m now thinking it may be a good time for you to dust off Outsider, perhaps re-read it so you remember what happens.

Outsider: Deliverance is coming soon!


Targeted advertising

I guess everyone has seen those targeted adverts that pop up ever time (it seems) when you go to a new page for whatever reason.

I found this one funny:


Book Depository

Yes, Book Depository… I’ll buy my own book off you…

I have to admit, they have me in pretty good company.


Thanks for reading
