My son, a 12 (going on 17) year old boy of reasonable brain capacity and huge Fortnite capacity, arranged... that is to say informed me we were going to the Science Museum in London to attend a history of video games event and by the way you can play them all... oh and...

Tonight is (was, if you're reading this later) Roll20 Dungeons and Dragons. We've on ongoing campaign set in the Lost Lands and are slowly, every so slowly, making our way through a lost city.

Last time out, our Barbarian rushed down a darkened corridor and returned to...

So, first of all, as you'll know, I've got an Omnibus edition of the first three Corin Hayes books coming out on March 26th. You can preorder now, and I really hope you will.

Anyway, marketing and I are strange bedfellows - not that I've climbed into bed with anyone fro...

Phew... and I mean that.

The first draft of A Good Day to Die was done a few weeks ago and now the second, tidy up and check for consistency, draft is also complete. August 6th to October 22nd, not too shabby an effort.

A Good Day to Die - opening lines... not...

On the 6th August, 2018, whilst on holiday and intending to edit my 8th book (now called Rivers of Song and Shadow (RSS) - it was SwordMaster), I was suddenly struck by a chapter and an idea for a new book.

I read Rob Hayes’s book, Where Loyalties Lie, the other week for the #SPFBO and enjoyed it (see the review over on Fantasy-Faction), so when the chance arose to try out Sea of Thieves on the Xbox it was impossible to resist.

Now, I hadn’t seen any videos, reviews or muc...

Welcome to March and a land covered in snow... and that's not fiction.

The UK does get snow, but usually not very much unless you live in Scotland or Northern England. Head south, to where I live, and it is much rarer.

Dickens set a lot of his books in the deep of winter...

Good grief, it has been a while since I posted anything here! 

A lot of my time has been taken up with writing and editing two books... TWO!

The first, "Last Winter Sun" - A-Team versus World of Warcraft (my own elevator pitch line) - is done and almost finished. How can...

You're like me.

I know you are. We're conversing, communicating, talking, aren't we? And you're here, reading this.

But, like me, you've noticed it? It may be that I am getting older. Maybe I am not as tolerant as I used to be? Or maybe I am just fed up with having to pu...
