News of a new product coming soon.

I am delighted to announce that the box set of the first three Newdon Killers books is coming soon. As a bonus there will be an extra short story.

The short story is an unusual look at an ancient Greek God in a modern setting. I wrote it as a submission to an anthology. The anthology never materialised. It was great to write, very different from my usual output. I’m sure that you will love it!

Autumn is here, a great time to get reading.

Good evening to you all. It is now autumn, the children are back at school and it appears that I may have a tiny more time to write. Huzzah!

So, what’s happened since the last blog? Death Dolls has been published to great reviews. You can see it on your favourite retailer, www.books2read.com/deathdolls1 it is reduced to 99p for a few days, so grab it while it is hot!

I am writing the third book in a trilogy. It is super exciting to be writing as it is so different from the Newdon Killers series. I love both series, but it has been a big decision to not release any of the trilogy books until they are all ready to go. We have all waited for the next book in a series before, with no firm idea of when it is coming. That can be frustrating, and I wanted to avoid that.

This series is to be called Limbo Island Trilogy, The first book starts with Marcus Lennon getting ace results in his school tests. His parents, Nancy and Damien reward him with a day out wherever he likes. He chooses the local museum as there is an exhibition about Japan… Maybe I’ll drop more teasers but for now that’ll do!

In November I am going to attend a Crime Writing Masterclass in Cambridge. As a fibromyalgia warrior, I know that this day is going to be exhausting for that day, and further days after. So for the couple of days leading up to it I’ll be resting even more than normal. That’s life living with chronic illness’, but hey we have to try and live a little!

That’s all for now; I love to hear from readers so don’t be shy to leave a comment or drop me a line!

Best Wishes

Hello!

Welcome to my first blog post. 

I love to hear from my readers. Trying to think of a way to connect more I realised that a blog has been staring me in the face. 

I'd love to chat about books we've been reading and other things too. 

Firstly - school holidays! It's the time of year that as a parent I fear to start with, but by the end of the six weeks I'm sad to see the hols close. I bet that I'm not alone in this! Our eldest son, Reuben, starts a new school in September. We are so excited as it's going to suit his needs down to the ground. The youngest starts nursery every afternoon, so not long until he joins the academic calendar merry-go-round. 

Books... As you may be aware, Death Dolls is only a week from release now. I can't wait to be able to share it with you all. The book has had smashing feedback from beta readers and ARC readers, so I'm feeling pretty positive. I somehow said that if I sold 2000 copies then I'll get the Death Doll tattoo! Of course if that happens, the day will be photo-documented for your amusement.

Other books that I have read recently. 

Some They Lie by MK Farrar - 5 stars from me. 

This is the first psychological thriller by the author. She is better known for her romance books. I kept thinking about the story after reading it - a sure sign that it's a belter. I hope that Marissa writes more books in this genre, as I will read them for certain.

When I talk about books from other authors, I will have read it and my comments on it true to my opinion. I have nothing to gain from a review, apart from hopefully helping readers find more great books. 

As this is my first blog, I don't want to overwhelm with too much content.

Please feel free to get in touch. 

Cheers! 

Simon
