R.I.P. my latest, 'ALT-Reich'

My Nazi-killing alternate reality Wolfenstein-inspired litFPS action thriller novel for Severed Press died today at 9pm, BST, 27/10/2017.

I loved every minute of it.

For a guy who wanted to write novels, but daydreamed about reviewing games for PCGAMER one day, this was the dream opportunity, so thanks to Severed Press for letting me play at being a writer and gamer at the same time.

Bestest fun ever.

Apart from weddings. And anniversaries. And kids.

*cough shit I feel obliged to say cough*

I got to write a whole novel set in a game world and kill a million Nazis while doing it. Doesn't get much better than that.

So, R.I.P. my new novel, ALT-Reich, which will wing its way to my publisher as soon as I've written the synopsis, which I'm off to do right now.

Love you.*

*Unless you're a Nazi.

BLOOD DRUGS TEA available in paperback for the first time

Like I said before, I'm quite happy (happier, in fact) being a hybrid author, but I do have old man hang ups - a novel doesn't feel done, to me, unless it's in print. I know it is, but there's some sense of finality about a print version being out in the world. Like saying, 'Yes, that does make you look fat' to your wife. A thing you can't take back, a thing that'll haunt you forever...

Anyway, to that end, I uploaded 'BLOOD DRUGS TEA', a kind of 90's tribute novel/murder mystery/love story with drugs and tea in it, as a paperback. I'm still playing catch up with all the things I haven't done, but after another week or so I'm back for a final draft of my Severed Press novel. More on that another time.


As always, with my indie releases, it's as cheap as I can manage.

Here's the cover/wrap for this one, and love you, and bye for now.

R.I.P. The Lies of Angels

I don't know when this was born (a long time ago), but I finished today. Date of Death: 18th October 2017. Rest in Peace, 'The Lies of Angels'.

This is my 39th full length story. I wrote it years ago, and always meant to make it what it should be. It was a 70,000 word novel. After cutting 45,000 of those words (none of which were needed to tell the story) and a rewrite, it's a novella, and something I'm proud of.


The Lies of Angels (Sample).

UK Link

This is an indie issue, so it's at my usual novella price of .99c/p.

I'll upload a paperback in the next week or so, and keep that at as reasonable a price as Amazon will allow.

Anyway, that's about that.

Baby Jesus loves you.

.99p/c Sale for a long time...ish

I set all novella length stories and short story collections to .99p/c on kindle.

I'll almost definitely change my mind about this, and then forget what I did, and they'll stay at this price anyway.

I also selected the option for people to be able to share. I'd rather they were read than not. They're older stories, too, and also, I don't give a poop.

Other news after this list of titles in the (possibly) endless sale:
(All links to US Amazon)

Novella length:

Death by a Mother's Hand
The Walls of Madness
Days of Christmas
A Scarecrow to Watch over Her

Short story collections:

Dead in the Trunk
The Cold Inside
Dark Words
Angels in Black and White

Other news:

The DarkFuse novella reissues (Flesh and Coin, Bloodeye, Deadlift, UNIT 731) will all be this price.

Last news:

This, another reissue on the long road to catching up with myself. It's novella length too, and I'm going to put this on for .99.

A sample of 'The Lies of Angels' is available in the 'sample' header, above. 

That's your lot. Love you. x

PIG Audio out now.

The audiobook of PIG is available to download now. Written by Craig Saunders and Edward Lorn, read by Molly King.




A quiet town, the kind of place old folk go to watch the sea roll in and the years roll out. The kind of place guys like the man in the pig mask can make an easy dime, or an easy killing.

An ancient entity...

An inhuman intelligence crawls up the shore and sprawls over Pointvilla. A thing capable of stealing bodies, and drawing minds into one, into it - the MIND. An intelligence pulling Pig Mask inward as others swirl around Pig himself, like he's a planet, a force, and the rest are drawn by gravity.


Ray and Bill are kin. The entity might understand loneliness, and the drive to consume and kill and torment...but it doesn't understand brothers and sisters. It doesn't understand siblings. Some people are tied together by more than blood.

In a town at one with the Mind, survival comes down to brothers and sisters and old dudes with a penchant for good weed.
