Rise Of The Reaper: Diary 1

Rise Of The Reaper: Diary 1

After taking a break to write something else (The Septic Circle) and, perhaps, get around the blocked, stuck feeling that was so frustrating, I decided to go back to my first love – my fantasy series. Yes, I still haven’t picked an actual name for the series itself, which may seem unusual, but I never […]

Latest GamingLives Article: A Letter From Skingrad

Latest GamingLives Article: A Letter From Skingrad

My latest article for GamingLives went live today: A Letter From Skingrad. I really enjoyed writing this piece, I’m just sorry that it took me so damn long. I had the idea a few years ago, and scratched out a few sentences, but then the piece of paper just floated around, being lost and found […]

Does Facebook Marketing Work?

Does Facebook Marketing Work?

 No. To cut right to the chase, I’d have to say no, not really. For me, Facebook advertising didn’t work. I know… it’s pretty gutting, really, as it is one of the few easy and affordable routes open to self-publishers, but I just didn’t find it effective. That said, I suppose it all depends on […]

Latest GamingLives Article: Controller Issues

Latest GamingLives Article: Controller Issues

My latest article is now live over at GamingLives. I moan about the lack of controller support for certain games – in particular, Oblivion, which I’d love to play on the PC, but which I don’t fancy struggling to play with the keyboard/mouse.

Lightning Source Vs CreateSpace: Fight!

Lightning Source Vs CreateSpace: Fight!

When you make the decision to take the plunge into the often-intimidating world of self-publishing, one of the most important questions you’ll have to answer (aside from ‘do I write dino erotica or monster porn?’) is ‘who do I use to print the damn paperbacks?’. Assuming you aren’t going down the spare-room-filling route of a […]

The Septic Circle Is Now Available

The Septic Circle Is Now Available

After a long, often painful, process, The Septic Circle is now available as both an eBook and a paperback. The eBook is only available through Amazon, however, for those with an aversion to The Big A, it can be bought from Waterstones.com. To say that I’m pleased is an understatement, but perhaps my biggest emotion […]

Body of Proof

Well, I’ll say something for CreateSpace – they work fast. After Mark spent last night finalising the design for my print cover for The Septic Circle, I got the thing uploaded to CreateSpace (the final thing that I needed to do in order to complete my book setup on their system), and then submitted the […]

Almost There

After royally fucking up and letting time slip away, I was far too slow sorting out my final edit and, therefore, my book won’t be bloody ready for a Christmas launch. What a fucking moron. The biggest retail window of the year, and I had ample time to get it done… and I missed it. […]

TV Viewing – December 2013

My list of TV shows is ever-dwindling, with shows slowly dying off or growing stale, but here is what I am watching at the moment: The Mentalist – Ticking along nicely. I’m still in a turmoil as to how I really feel about the grand Red John reveal, to be honest. It has been building […]

Latest GamingLives Article: Much Obliged

Latest GamingLives Article: Much Obliged

After a break from writing for GamingLives, only punctuated by a piece on the fiendish nightmare of a game that is Lost In Blue, I’m back. My latest article for GL is about my apathetic and shruggy attitude towards the next generation of consoles; about how a decision to buy is made more from a […]
