Three Anthologies

It's anthology day on July 10th, or at least it is for me. Firstly, there's this: It's been a busy few weeks for Fantasy For Good, the new anthology I've launched with Jordan Ellinger to benefit colon cancer research and awareness. We're now open for submissions, and we will be until August 31st. If you'd like to submit a fantasy short story in any sub-genre, we'd love to see it. Please follow the guidelines for the sake of our sanity. You have until August 31st to submit. SUBMIT! You WIL...

Free Short Story!

Yes it's true, I'm hosting a short story on my site that is completely free. You can read it right now with no strings attached. There are no forms to fill out, no ads to click on, just a free read for all visitors to this site who might be interested. The story is Yestermorrow, a time-bending SF tale that first appeared in Solaris Rising - the New Solaris Book of Science Fiction. It appears on this site with the kind permission of editor Ian Whates and Solaris head honcho Jonathan Oliver. ...

About Bloody Time!

Hello dear readers. Yes, it's certainly been a long time since I posted an update to this fair site. I'm sure you've been unable to breathe in the meantime, so I'm sorry if you ended up asphyxiating on my account. The day job bestowed upon me a promotion at the start of 2013 and things have been insanely hectic ever since. My writing output for the last five months has slumped to almost nothing. But stuff has happened. Oh yes! It has happened. Let's crack on with some exciting updates! (m...

World’s Collider goes Italian!

There have been lots of fantastic reviews for World's Collider recently, but the most unusual is certainly this one from Il Futuro E' Tornato. Yes, it's all in Italian. You can try Google Translate, like I did, but you'll find the result is rather garbled. It's difficult to tell whether or not they like it at all! So I turned to an old friend of mine, Tristan Tarrant, a genuine Italian and one of my old university housemates. Tristan graciously agreed to translate and you'll find the readabl...

This Is How You Die

This Is How You Die is the follow up to the enormously successful, internationally famous Machine of Death. My story, Your Choice, made the cut despite going up against over 2,000 submissions! This is both amazing and very humbling, and I'm absolutely delighted to be a part of this ongoing phenomenon. Mine is a choose-your-own-adventure style story, but more than that I can't say. It was a blast to write, though it took a lot of effort to get all the various moving parts lined up. I'm del...

No time to write? Get a dog!

So during August and September I wrote a novel. Yeah I know, it came as a shock to me too. This haunted house tale (with a difference!) currently clocks in at 71,000 words, which is more than I've produced on a single project since I was in university and I wrote a Doctor Who book called Two's Company. Yes it was dreadful but it was 75K and it actually made some sort of sense. I was quite proud of that. Since then of course, life has gone out of its way to ensure I don't have the kind of time...

News, reviews and birthday blues…

Lots to catch up on. Firstly, a bittersweet day this past Wednesday. This site turned one year old and I tried to think of a fitting way to celebrate. Unfortunately, the day job intervened and I didn't have time, which is more or less the story of my life for the past eight months. Ho hum. So happy birthday, website and I'm sorry the best I could come up with was a balloon image. You've done pretty well over the last year, and I hope you last for many more. (more…)

An incredible week!

So World's Collider was published on July 10th and sold pretty well out of the gate, but then something happened on Thursday morning (July 19th) that changed everything. This e-mail was sent to everyone in the UK who had previously bought one of Aaron Rosenberg's books from Amazon. So basically, Amazon UK saw that World's Collider featured Aaron, assumed this was his latest book (which it only sort of is) and publicized it to all his previous customers. Now Aaron has sold quite a lot o...
