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

Epic Release Date Face-Off Thingy!
Up until a month ago, two huge movies were vying for the same release date. For a while there it was Superman v Batman versus Captain America 3. Both Warner Bros and Marvel were adamant that May 6th 2016 was the ideal weekend to launch two very expensive flagship movies. In the end, Warner Bros blinked. Dawn of Justice (younger sister of Buffy of Justice) will now be released in March 2016. Another project, almost as highly anticipated as Batman v Superman, has also had to move it's relea...More
Fantasy For Good – Mega Update!
What's going on with Fantasy For Good? It's been a while since I posted to my blog, for reasons that I'll not go into yet. Fantasy For Good, the charity anthology I'm editing with Jordan Ellinger, has not been neglected though. We've assembled a kick ass line up of established legends, modern trailblazers and new talent in an anthology that will appeal to all fans of the fantasy genre. All these great folks are joining us to raise money for the Colon Cancer Alliance. In this update you'l...More
Fantasy For Good – Open Subs Deadline Extension
Apologies for the silence on this blog over the past month or so. I've been travelling the last two weeks and before that the day job reared its time-consuming head and swallowed me whole. But now I'm back with some news on Fantasy For Good, the charity anthology that Jordan Ellinger and I are editing for the benefit of the Colon Cancer Alliance. Previously we announced a reading window for open submissions ranging from July 1st to August 31st (see the guidelines here). We have decided to...More
It's anthology day on July 10th, or at least it is for me.

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

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
