It's been difficult holding this in. Elsewhen Press sent me the cover for Million Eyes II: The Unraveller last weekend and I've been bursting to show people. Well, now I can, and here it is. And I absolutely love it, more than the first one, in fact. Elsewhen Press have done a brilliant job (thank… Continue reading The Million Eyes II cover is here!
Sorry for the long gaps between posting, but as my newsletter readers already know, writing has been forced to plummet down my list of important things these past four months. Moving and renovating a house has proven one of the most stressful things I've ever done (of course, it would've been far less so had… Continue reading Million Eyes II ebook coming a little later than planned (but cover reveal and official blurb coming this Friday!)
Million Eyes II: The Unraveller has an official release date! It's coming on Friday 27th August as an ebook, so if you fancy some light reading for the bank holiday weekend... (I say 'light'. It's not really. It's actually rather dark in places – but always good fun 😆) It'll then be released as a… Continue reading Million Eyes II: The Unraveller coming out as an ebook on August 27th and a paperback on November 8th
My name didn't make the cover but it's what's inside that counts 😉 Hi lovely readers. Yes, I know I've been conspicuously absent lately. Unfortunately writing's had to take a back seat thanks to the builder renovating my new house deciding to bugger off mid-project. (That can be a story for another day!) Today, however,… Continue reading “What Happened to 70?” published in Best of British Science Fiction 2020 anthology from NewCon Press
I had planned today to share a few quick updates on where I am with the Million Eyes series, not expecting my publisher, Elsewhen Press, to email me this morning with their release schedule for Million Eyes II: The Unraveller! So I can now officially reveal that the book will be published in July as… Continue reading Million Eyes II: The Unraveller to be released in July!

My lovely newsletter readers will know that I've been using this crazy, weird year to make extra progress on Million Eyes II, the second installment of the Million Eyes trilogy. And it's worked, too. I'm much further ahead than I would've been had Covid-19 not forced a temporary halt to almost everything else in my… Continue reading Updates on the Million Eyes Series
Over the past few months, Million Eyes has received some fabulous reviews from lots of great blogs and publications. My favourite so far has to be the review that appears in Issue 9 of monthly sci-fi and fantasy magazine Parallel Worlds, released this month. Reviewer Ben Potts gives a really detailed breakdown of what the… Continue reading Parallel Worlds calls Million Eyes “a disorienting but enthralling experience” and an “excellent read”

Are you writing a time travel novel? What's your mode of time travel and what are your rules? A couple of weeks ago, Nothing in the Rulebook published a guest post I wrote with tips for authors daring to enter this fascinating yet sometimes dangerous realm. Basically, please ignore the disappearing rule. Read it here.… Continue reading Writing time travel
I'm not exaggerating when I say that last Friday was, hands down, the best night of my life. At Waterstones bookshop in Farnham, Surrey, I launched my new SF conspiracy thriller novel, Million Eyes, alongside my publishers, Elsewhen Press, and surrounded by family and friends. It was a brilliant success in spite of Coronavirus and… Continue reading Million Eyes launched at Waterstones and it was the best night of my life
I've written a guest post for All Things Jill-Elizabeth, just published today, looking at the two camps of people who enjoy conspiracy fiction — the ones who believe in conspiracy theories and the ones who just think it's villain-heavy fun. Head on over if you're a conspiracy fan! Jill also published a review of Million… Continue reading Tin foil hat wearer? Or do you just love conspiracy thrillers?
