What a week it's been! Two titles came out on the same day (December 9th) and behaved in very different ways. One was Fantasy For Good, a new anthology featuring a ton of amazing talent, with all proceeds going to the Colon Cancer Alliance. The other was my debut novel, The Patchwork House, a haunted house story with a time travel infusion.Let's hold on Fantasy For Good for a moment. Yes I'm talking about my own novel first, in a blatant attempt to publicize it to anyone coming here for info abo...More
A plethora of newsy things!
So much time and so little news! I may have got that backwards. Errr... The Patchwork House It's real! It exists... At least for pre-order. Reserve your copy now before the internet runs out of data. It could happen! Oh and take a look at the cover in all its glory. Very pleased with how this turned out. Getting the right cover for this book was quite a task, and I have Justin Terrell of Azarath Designs to thank for this haunting image. Yummy. Here's the book description... How do y...More
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...More
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.

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...More
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...More
