My new book “The Midnight Man” is now available on Amazon in ebook format
I’ve been very lucky to get the following excellent review for my short story “The Y front Stand off.”
Funny and sexy, what more could you want?, 25 Aug. 2015
And then there’s the masterful hero of the story, SCoT-01 who just oozes sex appeal in those Y fronts of his. Move over
You are not going to believe this – I’ve had a second publishing company asking for my Manuscript!
Below is the email I received thursday, as before I have removed the company’s name for fairness sake.

Two companies have called forward my Manuscript : ) I just cannot stop smiling : )
Thank you so much for sending through the first chapters and synopsis of Echoes of a Storm.
I enjoyed what I read and thought it had some obvious strengths. Unfortunately, however, we have decided that it’s not quite what we’re looking for at the moment.
Given the large number of submissions we have received, we are unable to give feedback, but I…‘d like to thank you again for thinking of us.
I wish you all the very best in your search for representation. I’m sorry not to be of more help in this instance.
On the negative side – its a rejection letter. On the positive side – I got a reply : ).
I would have been super super lucky to get a “Yes” letter at the very start, so the letter has not disappointed me, in fact quite the opposite it has encouraged me to keep trying.
I believe in my stories and characters, and I know there is a market for them. I just need to find the man or woman in publishing who thinks the same.
Just a quick post to say that my second novel – “Scions of the Storm” is currently free on Amazon in its Kindle format. it will be free from 4 Jan 15 to the 8 Jan 15 inclusive.
If you do download it, could I kindly ask that you leave an honest review on Amazon, it does not have to be hundreds and hundreds of words…honest : ) I would really appreciate your feedback.
