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
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

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
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.

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.

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. ...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
