My latest novel, New York Deep, is now available to purchase on Amazon here.
Hello, and welcome to Work in Progress, my blog about the books I write. If you’re looking for Noah’s Ark, you can get that for free here, and if you want to read my third novel, New Dawn, you can purchase it from Amazon here. My second novel, Vessel, is also available to purchase on Amazon here.

Thanks for stopping by!
It’s been over four months since New York Deep was published, and it’s absolutely flown by. I don’t think I’ve ever been so anxious! But, thanks to you, it’s done pretty well. The reviews are mostly positive, people seem to like it—what more can a guy want from a book?
Well, how about an audiobook? Yep, that’s coming out on April 28th. Looking forward to that! To celebrate, I’m giving all of you that haven’t yet had the chance to read New York Deep yet the opportunity to read it for free. You can win it—and a bunch of other sci-fi books—here.
Next on the horizon is something different from me—a young adult book. I’m hoping it’ll be a great read for adults too, but to give you the gist, it’s about a kid who lives on board a faraway space station with his parents and 50 other families. Got any thoughts on anything you’d like to see in it? Let me know!
Check me out! I’ll be doing a live interview tomorrow (Sunday 19th March) with the guys over at Keystroke Medium, and I’d love you all to join me and see what a doofus I really am… All you need to do is click the following link at 2:00pm GMT (10:00am EDT) tomorrow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWiIjpEjZiI
If you have any questions you’d like to ask, either leave a message here or fire one across to Keystroke Medium (http://keystrokemedium.podbean.com)
See you all then!
I hope you all had a great holiday! Remind me never to book a launch during the festive season again . . . the constant fretting made relaxing and enjoying the break pretty hard . . .!
Anyway, not to worry, because New York Deep has settled into a nice groove coming into 2017, and I wanted to thank you all for reading and reviewing it to help get it to where it is. Where it goes next, I don’t know, but I’m feeling positive about it. The launch so far has been more promising than Vessel’s, which did pretty well, so here’s hoping it’ll continue to be good.
What’s coming next? I have a few ideas . . . you’ll soon get to see what I’ve got planned!
Thank you all again, and best wishes for 2017.
My latest book, New York Deep, has now been published. You can get it on Amazon here.
Thank you all for getting involved and helping me produce this work. I hope you all enjoy it!
If you can get your friends and family to purchase and review it too, that would be amazing. The better it performs, the sooner I can write more books!
That’s the title of my next book. New York Deep. It’s about a tunnel engineer called Josh Reed, who discovers a mysterious room beneath Central Park during the excavation of the East Side Access extension tunnels. The CIA get involved, there’s a whole conspiracy—it’s pretty cool. At least I think so anyway!
It’s launching on the 16th of December, and it’ll look like this:
But you guys don’t have to wait that long, because I want to extend an invitation to get hold of a free advanced reader copy so you can tell me what you think of it before anyone else. That’ll be available on the 10th, so if you’d like a free advanced copy to review on Amazon.com, drop me a message at email@example.com or on the contact link top right and I’ll make sure you get one.
I hope you’re all as excited for it as I am!
The countdown begins!
As I type, I sit in wait of my agent’s opinion of my latest novel. I never realised it was possible to feel sick and excited at the same time before, especially not for this kind of duration. Occasionally I forget, but not for long, and the spike of adrena-nausea that follows is more than enough to make up for that brief respite.
What’s it about then? Can’t tell you for now. I want to. I want to post chapters and stuff like that, but if I do, I might as well put a bell around its neck and get it to yell, ‘Leper!’
You see, this is the first book that I’m seriously hoping to put in front of a publisher, and they—understandably—will want to have exclusivity. It’s a shame, because I’ve enjoyed sharing the progress of my works with you all before, but such is the way these things go. As the release gets closer—published or self-published—I’ll begin to share, and for those of you subscribed, I’ll be issuing free advanced reader copies to gather some opinions, but until then, it remains a secret.
Maybe that’ll build some anticipation, maybe it’ll just annoy you. Who knows. I certainly don’t! What I do know is, and this is all I can share for now, is that the book is set in New York and was a real melon-scratcher to write.
I’ll keep you all posted.
I hope you’re all enjoying New Dawn. I’d love to know what you think of it, good or bad. I rely on feedback from people like you to improve, so anything you can share would be massively appreciated.
I look forward to hearing from you.
