There's been a lot said about the rights and wrongs of giving books away, but before KDP Select and the opportunity to make my books free, they were all but invisible. Consequently I'm having another one day giveaway, for short story collection 'Show No Mercy' and debut novel 'Convictions'.
'Convictions' generally does very well indeed over two days, so it will be interesting to see how many readers it attracts with a one day only promotion.
If you'd like a copy of…Continue

Paul Brazill's eagerly anticipated Drunk on the Moon series of e-books kicked off earlier than anticipated, hitting the stores yesterday - and it's already racing up the Amazon charts. The first in the series, written by Paul himself, is a humdinger of an opener, introducing werewolf PI Roman Dalton and the mean streets he prowls. Paul's writing…Continue
And, you'll be relieved to know, it's not all about me. (But some of it is...)
On the news front, I heard about Lyrotica: An Anthology of Erotic Poetry and Prose yesterday. I mention it because it contains the writing of the immensely talented Richard Godwin. His debut novel…Continue

Brilliant news for Ian Ayris, whose heart-rending story HARD TIMES - A CHARLIE SPLINTERS STORY was placed fourth in the recent Watery Grave Invitational. Congratulations, Ian - it's a fantastic story. It stays with you long after you've finished reading, too.
BROKEN DREAMS is Nick Quantrill’s debut novel, and it’s a cracker.
It can’t be easy being a PI in…Continue

Been catching up with my reading now that my writing is a tad more up to date. Reviews of Sean Patrick Reardon;s MINDJACKER and Nigel Bird's DIRTY OLD TOWN here, and Josh Stalling's stunning debut BEAUTIFUL, NAKED AND DEAD here.
Tied in with this is the fact that my blog is…Continue

I blogged over at Another Day in the Word Factory about how much I love to write and yet how inventive I can be when it comes to putting writing off.

Less than two weeks ago, I read some stuff that opened my mind to the possibilities and opportunities presented by e-books. I did a complete about face and went from being totally disinterested in them to becoming very enthusiastic about them. Perhaps the most insightful observation made to me regarding this was that I was initially looking at e-books from the point of view of a reader who would far rather have a 'proper' book, and moved to the standpoint of a writer who wanted to be able to…Continue
