Awesome Fantasy Book needs your vote … now use your vote wisely (remember Brexit and Trump!)

My book Blood On Borrowed Wings has been nominated for a prestigious March / April Group read.

It’s on Goodreads in the ‘Grimdark Fantasy’ Group.

Please follow the link below to vote in the poll – it would really help book sales, exposure and help me out massively.

Vote for my book on Goodreads here.

In a world where so many imbalances can be caused by a  misused vote, please take a minute to do something positive. It won’t change the world – but for just a  moment of your time, it might change mine.

Thanks for reading.

Book Launch

Hello all.

It’s been a long time.

Just thought I would hurl a preliminary post out there to see if any of you are left and this blog site is still active?

I have finally finished my novel and will be launching it on Kindle in the next week or so. Follow this site for updates and more information.

Let me know if you are still out there (short / sarcastic / caustic / insulting comments) and watch this space…..

 

Thank you

 

The clique of geek – Science-fiction

Do you have to be a geek to enjoy science fiction?

Is there a stigma to the genre?
Is the news right? Is the geek economy in turmoil (at least I think that’s what the newsreader said?)

My hair is neither lank or dyed black, I even wash occasionally – yet I have chosen to write a science fiction book.
Why?

Simple.

It chose me.
The story and characters emerged and told me where they needed to live, and when.
They told me to forget any illusions of literary credit or note, credibility or ease of marketing. They flew me to a saturated market and kicked me out of the zeppelin.

In short, they screwed me over.

I have exacted my revenge by putting them all through the wringer, I’ve killed a few of them off. Maimed them. Dangled a love interest to get their hopes up, then dashed them on the rocks of hubris.
(And let me tell you, dangling a love interest can often get you into trouble!)

With them all put to rights, I am hoping to soon stop cringing when I talk of the genre of my book. To quell any embarrassment or misplaced concern…and if I can’t?

Well I can always hop into a time machine, onto a dinosaur, into a black hole or bestride a BMX with a hoodie wearing telephone addict and escape.

I mean any escape is good, right?
