Monday Mutterings - an Update

I have a busy time ahead in the next week - the approaching arrival of CARLYLE'S CROSSING from Total E-Bound, publishing NEVER TOO LATE when the rights revert to me, and the necessary promo work on both.

Then I remembered this morning that I have to revise for self-publishing another short story whose rights have reverted to me - THE CAMERAMAN'S TALE from the no longer available Hearts Of England anthology. And next month I will have to start thinking about UNDERCOVER BLUES for Manifold Press...

All this over and above working on several stories and trying to cope with other demands... Not easy. And at times, not as much fun as writing usually is. What can I say - I like challenges, but hate deadlines... It doesn't help that all my various projects/tasks have formed a log-jam in my skull that will take mental dynamite to shift.

Sooo, while I'm attempting to get my head organised, CARAVAGGIO'S ANGEL is taking a slight sideways step, while GREYMALKIN has moved back a bit. Between you, me and the gatepost, this irritates the hell out of me. I was enjoying working on both stories, and when Real Life and other pressures intervene, it pisses me off.

CARLYLE'S CROSSING will be available for Pre-Order from Total E-Bound on August 2nd.
NEVER TOO LATE will be re-released on August 1st from Kouros Books, and be available from All Romance e-Books and from Amazon as fast as I can manage it.

Sunfire And Shadow - the Sequel!

Sunfire And Shadow - once War Trail - has been re-released!

This sequel to Sunfire, the epic High Fantasy co-written with Terri Beckett, is now available at All Romance eBooks and at Amazon


At Kherin's birth in faraway Khassan, a seer prophesied, 'He will make the mountains to dance, and bring change to a great nation.'


Rythian and Kherin have gained one victory over their enemies but the threat of invasion from Tylos is ever-present. Their enemies within the tribe gain new allies and treachery is brewed. The Mage of Tylos schemes to take Kherin prisoner – his captive daemon must be bribed with blood.


Emri and Syth know the price their husbands will have to pay but the survival of their people is at stake—Tylos is amassing a vast army to crush the D’Shael once and for all, and every man, woman and child in the tribe must play their part in the coming battle.


When the unholy might of the daemon enters the fray, Rythian’s god and Kherin’s goddess summon their mortal weapons to a different conflict. It is time for the prophecy  to be fulfilled.
