Not me, obviously, but my blog. Five years I’ve been doing this now and what a lot of changes I and it have gone through in that time.

Author Interview: Peter James on The House on Cold Hill
Ladies and gentlemen, dear readers old and new. I am very, very delighted and proud to present you with my very first author interview and it is with one of the most celebrated writer’s of crime. A few weeks ago, I was requested to read and review the book The House on Cold Hill by crime writer Peter James. The book was released last week. Here, I present my Q+A session with the writer.

Book Review: The House on Cold Hill by Peter James
I seem to be attracting requests for review for commercial work these days; that’s why I am reviewing this book several days before its official release. An interview with the author will follow so please check back.
Peter James is a well-known writer of crime and science thrillers, and though having looked up his bio it seems he has dabbled in the supernatural before, but nothing quite like this. Continue reading “Book Review: The House on Cold Hill by Peter James”
Autumn 2015 Goals
I know some of my regular readers partake in the Top Ten Tuesday. I think it’s a great idea, but I have stopped shy of introducing the feature here because I’m concerned about getting sucked in a little too much when I have work to do. Sort of inspired by this week’s prompt, I’ve decided to compile a list of three goals for me to achieve before the Winter Solstice on 23rd December 2015. Continue reading “Autumn 2015 Goals”
Dead Heat now on Smashwords Premium
Good news! Following on from yesterday’s bold submission of the first three chapters and an outline of Salmonweird, I received news overnight that all is fine with the Smashwords submission of Dead Heat and the brom-zom-com is officially part of the Smashwords Premium scheme. Continue reading “Dead Heat now on Smashwords Premium”
Speculative Submission for “Salmonweird”
I did it, I bit the bullet. Despite that my supernatural-crime-comedy novel/la is not yet complete (21,000 words strong though despite only starting a few months ago), I submitted a speculative application to a literary agent calling for submissions through Facebook. Continue reading “Speculative Submission for “Salmonweird””
Dead Heat Zom-Com Hard Copies – OUT NOW!
I’m very pleased to announce to you today that my zom-com Dead Heat is now available as hard copy editions as well as previously available mobi, pdf and epub files (available through Amazon and Smashwords).
Corporate team building days can be fun and when three friends: Jim, Mike and Tony are told this year’s event would be the Dead Heat zombie race, where they would be chased by aspiring actors of mixed talent pretending to be zombies, they thought it would be worth it for a day out of the office.
Dead Heat Print Copies
After an anxious couple of weeks of waiting for my proof copies of Dead Heat, to be published through Amazon CreateSpace, they have finally arrived. At first glance, they look very good but I will make some changes to the text – I had forgotten to take out the navigation chapter section and it’s pointless keeping it in because there are no page numbers (which need to be inserted anyway). Continue reading “Dead Heat Print Copies”
News on Dead Heat – And a Special Request
Last week, I had a 5-day free download period on my horror-comedy novella Dead Heat in an attempt to boost rankings and get a few more reviews on Good Reads and Amazon in a hope of more sales. I guess you can say it was fairly successful – over 100 copies were “bought” during the free trial period and some 15 Kindle Online Lending Library accounts accessed it (not sure whether I get royalties on the KOLL, the Amazon page is not clear on that). Continue reading “News on Dead Heat – And a Special Request”
I Have a New Blog – Random Reviews!
Do you like to read independent reviews of drinks, restaurants, food, days out, or entertainment media? Do you get fed up with reading endless and meaningless three-word reviews on Amazon, or sick and tired of picking through fake reviews on the internet? Never fear, because I have started a new blog dedicated only to reviews. Continue reading “I Have a New Blog – Random Reviews!”
