Double launch day – a cabinet and a trio!

Today is launch day for not one but TWO books! OK, I'm cheating slightly because one is a box set/omnibus edition, but hey. Here are the books in question! Hopefully you can tell from the covers that they're kind of related. 😉 Both are from my most traditional and probably darkest Sherlock Holmes series, Halloween Sherlock. …

Happy self-publiversary to me!

I only noticed this about half an hour ago (it's latish afternoon here in the UK), but today is my 30-month or 2.5-year self-publiversary!

The Cat Is In The Library? A quantum-inspired short story

So, the Quantum Shorts story competition has come round again. I didn't think I'd manage to write a story for it this year, what with NaNoWriMo and everything, but then Twitter sparked off an idea... Who can't get behind a story featuring cats and libraries? I started off with a spin on Schrodinger's Cat, based …

Penny for the Guy: a story for Bonfire Night

Here's a cheery little story for Bonfire Night. Hope you enjoy it! Penny For The Guy ‘Hooligans, that’s what they are,’ he said, tugging the curtains closed and turning up the volume on the telly.
