Latest news and answers to questions about SNAKE EYES

You’ve been asking some very good questions today, folks. Here are ALL the answers:

E-book/Print book

The update on the e-book version is this: having spoken to Bad Moon Books this afternoon, I can tell you to expect this a couple of months after the print version is released. That would make SNAKE EYES e-books available in mid-March!

Review copies

There are a very limited number of physical ARCs, however, pdfs of SNAKE EYES will be available to all those with a genuine interest in writing reviews. Please contact to get your copy.


At the moment, there is only one planned opportunity for a signing. This will be towards the end of January but isn’t finalised yet. I’m trying to secure stock but can’t guarantee it will arrive in time! More on this question later, therefore.

Overseas Orders

Excellent news:Roysays ‘No problem’! Physical books can be shipped or you can wait until the e-book comes out – same choice as everyone else!

When is my next novel coming out?

I don’t know. I’ve written several. I’m just waiting for a publisher to notice.


For far too many tedious reasons to mention – none of them being that I’ve ‘stopped writing’ – I haven’t released a book out for over two years. Added to everything else, this has weighed heavy on me.

But now, finally (well, hopefully not literally finally…), here is the gem I signed a contract for almost 23 months ago. I’ll have to just tell you stuff about the book at the moment because the only place you can even glimpse what it looks like is in the Bad Moon Books advert at Hellnotes!

SNAKE EYES comprises two novellas in a single volume; one Horror/Fantasy and one SF/Horror:

A Trespasser in Long Lofting – An isolated, drought-choked village. A starving community. When something big, red and inhuman crash-lands in a cabbage field, the villagers are divided: is this a scrumptious dragon for the barbecue or a toxic demon to be destroyed? And what if it’s something else entirely?

A Man of Will and Experience – Robert Johnson dreams of spiders, thousands of them. When he wakes, the true nightmare begins: a tube has been attached to his head – to everyone’s – but he’s the only one aware of it. His cosy suburban life unravels into paranoid hallucination as Johnson fights to free himself from the control of unseen forces.

As soon as pre-orders are open, I’ll let everyone know. Dogged reviewers can contact Bad Moon Books but I think most ARCs are already spoken for.

All that’s left to say is Hoo-fucking-ray!
