New Book Cover!

*puts on ominous voice*

The time has come.

It has arrived.

On a shelf near you.

*cough* *cough*

As promised, gentlefolk. Another exciting moment in the life of the Adventures of Alan Shaw series. Not only was the second book (Old Haunts) published just a few weeks ago, but now the first book has had a long-awaited makeover.

Guaranteed to look even sexier than a sexy thing while adorning your book shelves. I share with you, the new covers side by side for the first time!

 

Now THAT’S a series!

What can we spot in there?

Alan looking badass. London skyline. Airship. Automaton. Creepy villain. A few cogs thrown in for that Steampunk feel.

Oh yes. It is fair to say, my friends, that I’m feeling pretty good about those covers.

But what do you think? Feeling their mesmerising awesomeness compelling you to read? Eager to find out where that airship’s heading? Intrigued by what lies beneath that villainous shadow? Let me know!

 

Thanks for reading!

Old Haunts Update!

Hi everyone,

So my latest novel, Old Haunts (The Adventures of Alan Shaw book 2) has been out in the world a whole week!

It’s an odd thing as it seemed to take aeons to be released and now that it’s here time is flying once more.

I mostly wanted to say thank you to everyone who shared, commented and of course bought the new book. You have no idea how much your support means to me and how extremely helpful it is to have people spread the word to their own circle of family and friends.

A few folks have said they’re waiting to catch me at one of the events on the Tour Dates page so that’s something to look forward to. Scarborough Sci-Fi convention at the end of April is always a highlight of my authoring year with so many fun and friendly people there to meet and re-meet (our group came only a point away from winning their annual grand geek quiz last year. So close!)

So, Old Haunts has been doing well and held a pretty high Amazon ranking for the first few days of it’s release. That’s great for a little indie author like me and I’m very pleased with it. A few people have even got back with reviews already! And they’ve all been very kind and made me feel, as always, like telling Alan’s story is worthwhile. It also helps me get over the next hurdle…

I should probably write the next book! Eek!

While I have plenty of ideas, I’ve barely touched Alan’s third outing. After finishing Old Haunts I worked on a couple of novellas that have been scratching away in my head. Now they’re done which is great but I really need to get back to Alan, now. I just need to find a name for a very important character and then I’ll start, honest 😁

Anyway, thank you all again for your constant support. I feel very lucky to have you all

Thank for reading!

(This blog post was typed thumb-wise on my phone so apologies for the lack of pictures etc 😊)

Old Haunts is here!

Gentlefolk!

It is with great pride and excitement that I can now officially say Old Haunts (The Adventures of Alan Shaw 2) has been unleashed!

AS2 3D

My fourth novel with Inspired Quill and second book in my Steampunk adventure trilogy, Old Haunts is already selling like hotcakes with lots of folks having pre-ordered after reading book one.

I feel very lucky to have such enthusiastic readers. I really do appreciate you all.

For those of you who haven’t picked it up yet but would like to, you can buy it directly from Inspired Quill or from Amazon.

You can also help out by doing two simple and quick things:

  1. Share it! Likes are lovely but shares really help to reach new readers
  2. Rate it! Hitting some stars on Amazon or Goodreads is super helpful

Also don’t forget that if you send me a pic of your book and your location, you can join the Readers Gallery and World Map! It’s just a bit of fun, but fun it certainly is 🙂

Thank you again, everyone, for all your support. It means the world to me that my little novels are out there in the world.

 

As always, thanks for reading.

Embrace The Weird!

He may not be educated, he may not be rich, he may not even be a very nice person most of the time, but when the chips are down, Alan always has a quip up his sleeve (and probably your Nan’s silver spoon set, too).
