The Gamblers: a sample

Thank you for visiting my profile. Below is a clickable link to sample chapters of my first novel The Gamblers - a violent and dark slice of British noir fiction. There's nothing to download, you just click the link and start turning the pages. Once you start reading those pages will start turning faster and faster...


If you like it, please leave feedback or alternatively buy the full novel at the Kindle store for a very reasonable sum or for you British Kindlers

Hi Martin,


Congratualtions on the short story collection!  Who's the publisher?  When you do have some more stories keep Noir Nation in mind.  Also We have Bare Knuckles Press that can publish eBooks and print, so keep us in mind for your next collection.  The new Noir Natin website is up  Please leave us a comment!

Hi Martin,


I'm the European editor for Noir Nation, and I would love to get some more stories from the UK for Issue 2  (Issue 1 will be available Sept 1, 2011).  Looking for short stories and graphic stories (comics).  Maybe you have some, and could also help spread the word?  We start reading for issue 2 on Oct 1.


Thank you,
