On Friday 19th November, I launched Million Eyes II: The Unraveller at Chandlers cafe and cocktail bar in Clanfield, Hampshire, very near mine and Katherine's new house. It was a wonderful success and another of the best nights of my life. This second launch almost didn't happen. Originally scheduled to take place at Waterstones like… Continue reading Launching Million Eyes II at Chandlers (and how brilliant it was)
Was Jesus really a god? What if the gospel stories are colourful and distorted reimaginings of what actually happened? This is one of the central ideas in Million Eyes II: The Unraveller, a book that also connects the dinosaurs, the Gunpowder Plot and the Bermuda Triangle in a weird, twisty, timey wimey adventure. Million Eyes… Continue reading Want to know who Jesus REALLY was? Million Eyes II: The Unraveller now available as a paperback!
These photos, taken by Galina Varese at Chez Maximka, are wonderful. She's found an image that could be the 'Hooded Man' in Million Eyes II, along with the Gunpowder Plotters and Jesus.

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'.

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

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.
