Hey folks, a bit of shameless advertising here - but where better to do it than on your own website. Gunboy is now 99p/99c on Amazon up until February 1st, you can still pick it up on Kindle Direct for free and of course the paperback for £8.99. All the King’s horses and all the King’s men, cannot put the country together again...
In 2038 the Government rules from York after losing control of Southern England to anarchy. Now after 30 years of gangland law; Evan Bell has fou
Hello, gentle readers. When I started the book in 2013, it was because I didn’t know if I could write a book. It was a worthwhile question to put to myself. In 2015 I was about to self-publish, and my editor Siobhan recommended it to my now publisher Gary Compton. I don’t think I can ever thank her enough for this chance. Now the date has been set. I will be published on March 7th (that’s this Tuesday) for everyone to read - or not. And that is a terrifying prospect. I expect
I've just written the closing chapter of Gunboy's sequel, 'Disconnect' (Working Title). And it's the first book I've written from notes to novel without a screenplay in between. The difference? Well to start, I realised I can't read when I'm writing. I took a break mid way through and enjoyed Stephen King's Dark Tower, and it screwed me up. When I went back to it, I found myself emulating the great Mr. King in the way a four year old emulates Ironman. I now have two terrible
Drum roll... Te Dah! This is the artwork from legendary artist Jim Burns. Honoured to say the least. I thank Gary Compton my publisher and Siobhan Marshall-Jones for having faith in the book in the first place. To think my name now shares a list with Phillip-K-Dick blows my mind. Here's the cover he did for PKD: Anyway, dear readers the book looks good to be coming out early next year. No date yet, but my last round of editing starts next week and I've been told to dust off m
Very excited to announce Leighton Evans is joining Tickety Boo Press with his Cyber-Thriller, set in a divided Britain, (very apt in the current aftermath of Brexit and the disintegration of the political opposition) where politicians grind the country between the cogs of their machinations.
An idealist, lost in war torn streets, a cybernetic enhanced soldier at odds with his mission and a child who knows nothing but murder, must stand together to United a Kingdom.
So, back to it. Point 7 - Contributor Copies. This will outline what you (as the author) get out of this deal. For Free. You should at least get one digital copy pdf/mobi/epub.

It may also offer you a discounted price should want to purchase more. However, depending on the size of the company etc. You may be offered a stack of books, you k
I've back peddled. After two weeks of deliberation and questions, alterations and confirmations I have signed a contract so the GunBoy gets published. It's just over three pages long, has some long words but nothing I needed to look up (thankfully). I'll break it down, point by point over a couple of posts so you don't need to hang about reading me waffle on all night. At the top, you get a paragraph explaining who is whom in the rest of the document. It's pretty standard. I
Okay, I had a whole self publishing thing to post but if I post it I wouldn't be telling you guys what's really going on. I said last week that I'd declined the option to be published, I did. What happened next was unexpected, I was offered again. I put my cards on the table, after all I have a self publishing strategy all in place I've even paid for a cover (see above). I wasn't expecting any of this. They say flattery can get you everywhere, or anything. I've never been one
Do you remember 2013? I won't hold it against you if not. It's been twenty four years since. This is a bit of a retrospective. I hope you'll lend me your patience for a tad. You see, I was there. At the start, in London. Carrying nothing but my handmade made sign and lose change in our pockets. Remember coins? Can't say I miss them. Anyway, my sign was a gold middle finger and the words "WTF WTO". I was young and stupid. I wanted my voice heard. If you were alive in 2013 or h
