Picker’s Bleed – OUT 13TH SEPTEMBER

Almost a decade after the publication of FLUX, I finally have a new novel.

I’m excited and nervous about this one, which I suppose is normal for any release. If any bloggers / reviewers want a copy then please get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.

Here’s the blurb

Deep in the woods at Picker’s Bleed there’s a fairy-tale cottage, where witches lived and demons lurk.

When Hannah and Jake manage to buy the dilapidated house deep in the English countryside, they think they’ve found their dream home, but their dream becomes a nightmare when Hannah discovers the house’s dark past won’t stay dead.

Ensnared by witchcraft and betrayed by those she turns to for help, Hannah finds herself dragged into the realm of the dead, caught in a battle to break an ancient curse and save her soul from eternal damnation.

British horror from the author of FLUX

Infested – Out Now

cover2I can’t believe I’ve been so lax I haven’t even posted this on my own website.

Infested has been out for a couple of months now and is getting some good reviews, mainly five star ones.  I’m more than pleased with the reaction it’s been getting. Thanks to anyone who’s read the story and especially to those who’ve reviewed it.

Number 1

Recently, having two promotion days left on Amazon, I decided to make Flux free for a weekend.  I wasn’t expecting much from it as results in the past have been varied.  On the Saturday, the number of downloads were comparable to past promotions, good but not staggering.  However, on Sunday this happened.

To say I was excited would be an understatement and I’d like to thank anyone who has read, commented, blogged or mentioned my book in any way, shape or form.

In the end, Flux reached number one on Amazon in both Horror and Fantasy, which put it at number 40 in Amazon’s overall top 100 books.

The exposure this has given has been invaluable and now, almost exactly a year after its publication, Flux is selling better than it ever has.  Long may the trend continue and fingers crossed, when my new novel is published in a few months, there will be many people willing to buy it.

I won an award

I’ve never won anything in my life, especially for my writing.  This is why I was so pleased when I found out Flux was voted joint winner in the Horror category on indie book bargains, a website set up to promote the great wealth of independent books and authors which are available.
