Well, the Goodreads giveaways that spanned most of January and February are over.
Following half a day of printing and signing letters, personalising title pages and stuffing envelopes, all the prizes are now in the post.

I gave away: Continue reading
Just a quickie this morning, lovely people.
It turns out that so many of you downloaded the opening extract of The Veil it went straight into Lovereading’s Top Ten books of the week – I’m up there with Nadiya Hussain!
So it’s a big THANK YOU from me and a picture of my cats…
(And if you haven’t read the beginning of the story, what are you waiting for? A quiet Sunday morning? 🙂 )
I’m delighted to announce that all my proposed Goodreads give-aways have been approved.
This means that from the 11th to 24th of January I will be giving away six different titles, totalling 42 books! So entering means there’s a very good chance of winning something. Continue reading
The Veil has the honour of being a staff pick-of-the-week on book recommendation hub Lovereading.co.uk – as well as occupying a Book of the Month slot on the same site.
If you like a bit of Sci Fi with your Horror, why not read the free opening extract that Lovereading have made available. Not only will you be hooked, you’ll also give the title a boost and I might make it into the top 10 downloaded books of the week – awesome!
By the way, when you’ve had a mind-blowing experience reading one of my books – do share your thoughts by leaving a rating, review or both somewhere on-line.
It makes a difference to sales and knowing there’s another satisfied customer out there always makes me want to knuckle down and get the next story out there as quick as I can…
It’s 2017. Extraordinary. Astounding.
Or perhaps nothing more significant than flipping a page on a calendar…
Whatever the case, I’m celebrating by giving away a load of books on Goodreads this month. These are some of the titles I’m hoping to share:
So, watch for updates and get ready to pounce – some of these will be signed, out-of-print copies. Meanwhile, wishing you every joy and fulfilment for what is bound to be a year to remember.
Today it’s nothing to do with me. Really.
Apart from the fact that I know some of these clowns personally…
And because of that, I hope you’ll enjoy this excellent one-minute film by Chris Brosnahan. Continue reading
I have two events coming up in November, both in honour of new books. Drop in and say hi if you’re free…
Clown Wars book launch
My friends Simon and Tim at the Big Green Bookshop have made the foolish schoolboy error of allowing Jeremy Drysdale and I to have a secret clown party on their premises. Except it’s not a secret and no clowns are allowed – see below.
Making of that what you will, do join us for tea, sandwiches and custard pies on the evening of 17th November from 7pm onwards. We will read a passage or two from the book, discuss your concerns about the current spate of clown profiling and mingle a bit too.
Signed copies, as you’d expect, but stocks of the physical books are limited.
The Veil book launch
A few days later, on 26th Nov, I’ll be at Sledgelit in Derby with the owner/editor of Horrific Tales Publishing, Graeme Reynolds. We’ll be launching the limited edition hardback of The Veil (ebook and audio versions also available).
There’ll be lots of other cool stuff going on at Sledgelit and many of your favourite genre authors will be there too. Come and see us!
