Regular visitors to my site (Hi Mum!) will have noticed I've made a few changes around here. The major one being that I switched my Wordpress Theme. The old Grey backdrop with white text was getting somewhat tired, and it's not conducive to reading. So I searched for something clean and black-on-white and found Accesspress Lite, which I really like. The banner is nice but not yet clickable, and there's some back-end weirdness to overcome to get it to work. In general though I like the change and...More
This blog has been very quiet recently and for good reason. I've been working on a secret project that might well be my highest profile release ever, if I ever finish it. To say it's been a challenge is understatement of the year, but I'm getting on top of it and making inroads now. In the meantime, I wrote a new short story! Last year I was invited by World's Collider contributor and Pax Britannia creator Jonathan Green to write a story for his forthcoming anthology, Sharkpunk. This brand ne...More
A Whirlwind Launch Week (updated)!
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

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
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...More
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…)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...More
