Watch out! A cornucopia of Sherlockery is imminent!

A while ago I had a lovely surprise in the form of an invitation from noted Sherlockian David Marcum to write a story for the MX New Sherlock Holmes anthologies. If you haven't come across these anthologies before, they bring together new traditional Holmes stories from all over the world. The anthologies also raise money …

Box set Friday – and it’s launch day for The Sherlock & Jack Chronicles!

Well, if there's an R in the month I figure I should probably release something ūüėČ . ¬†Seriously, though, I've been wanting to put together the three books from the¬†Sherlock & Jack¬†series pretty much since I finished the draft of¬†A Phoenix Rises last summer, so here it is!

A big 12 Days thank you!

Back in May 2017, I joined 12 other writers to take part in a charity Christmas anthology,¬†12 Days of Christmas, with all profits going to the child literacy charity The Book Bus. The premise was 12 stories, each themed according to the carol 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'. The anthology was the brainchild of the …

Cover reveal: Coming soon…Bitesize!

Well, I did say I was finalising another book cover...and here it is! Say hello to¬†Bitesize!

All my own work: reading for a flash fiction collection

I started a new project this week, something I've been thinking about for a little while. As I'm twiddling my thumbs waiting for the¬†Secret Notebook paperback proof¬†to plop through my letterbox, I figured I might as well get on with it. The project is to see if I have enough good flash stories from the …

Solstice Dark, Solstice Light: two charity anthologies

I'm sure time is speeding up because it¬†can't¬†be 6 months since the summer solstice. Then again, waking up in darkness would suggest that it is... Anyway, it's the winter solstice here, and nearly Christmas, and a time for giving, and for thinking of people less fortunate than ourselves. So I'm waving the FlashDogs banner for …
