Two Cons for the Price of One






























Hi everybody, and welcome to my June 2024 blog. I hope you're all well, enjoying the faint strains of what I assume to be the sun, and managing to read some good books.


In May of this year, I exhibited at two of my favourite conventions of 2024 so far - the Comic and Gaming Convention in Bournemouth, and the one and only Horrorcon in Sheffield. Both conventions were really well attended and I managed to meet and chat with a lot of really cool readers. Horrorcon in particular was also a good networking opportunity for me, and I spent some time with the other authors there, including the indomitable Killian Gore (Killian H Gore (@killianhgore) • Instagram photos and videos). If you were there and I met with you - thanks for coming along and saying hi.


I'm pleased to say that I'm now on the third draft of my next horror/sci-fi novel, tentatively titled The Cure for Everything. It's coming along really nicely. A few more drafts to go before it's even remotely ready for publishing, but I'm feeling really good about it. If I can get it polished and ready this month, I'll be a happy boy.


I'm also pleased to say that the audiobook version of The Faraway People, narrated by the talented Charles Robert Fox, is COMPLETE!! Yep, you heard me. It's finally done. It should hit Audible in around 2 weeks which is great news. It's been a long time in the making, and so to celebrate, I've created an audiobook page on this website which currently includes a link to the audiobook version of Pale Face and The Raven. The link to The Faraway People will be added real soon.


On the convention front, I'll be exhibiting at the Bristol Comic and Gaming Convention on 27th July, but not before my family and I head to the Download Festival next week (I won't be exhibiting there - just banging my head). If you like a real mix of all the variations of Rock and Metal, then Castle Donington is the place to be this time every year.


I've just finished reading Manhunter by Gretchen Felker-Martin. In keeping with time honoured tradition, I didn't read the blurb and got much more than I bargained for. It really is a unique take on the zombie genre, full of gore, action and some pretty graphic sex scenes. More importantly, it's excellently written. I've just started Rachel Harrison's latest book Black Sheep, and so far it's awesome. This is the second book of Rachel's that I've read, and I can't recommend her highly enough. If you like a snappy, contemporary narrative with some really sharp, witty dialogue, then she just might be the author for you.


Anyway, that's it from me this month, but if you want to ask me any questions or learn more about my work, feel free to hit the contact tab on this web site.


Happy reading.
