Sunday snippet

Time for a little something from the book I’m currently writing. My request startled her, and I realised Nina dozed off, her head resting on Sara’s shoulder.‘Yes, sorry, it’s in my bag in the bathroom. Give me a moment, please.’ She said, and as soon as Nina left, Sara looked at me, and I swearContinue reading “Sunday snippet”

Iceland – my dream come true

I love to scroll through TikTok and news articles first thing in the morning when we have time to relax in bed. Mark reads his manga comics and peeks over my shoulder when I watch any funny stuff I find. Today, the first thing I saw was news about an Icelandic town evacuated because ofContinue reading “Iceland – my dream come true”

Storms and a hot cocoa

The weather is fickle in Cornwall; we have deep autumn, and that means storms lash the shores with the regularity of the clock. I know some people hate it or even are afraid of it. I understand this completely. Bashing wind and pouring rain drive them mad. For me, it is one of the bestContinue reading “Storms and a hot cocoa”

The book is out and I’m out too

Magic and Medicine is out in the world and I feel so incredibly tired. I don’t know why, but it felt like like a marathon this time. Now I’m sitting and twiddling my thumbs, waiting for recommendations, reviews and, of course sales whilst working in the meantime at my normal doctor job. I once askedContinue reading “The book is out and I’m out too”

Word of mouth–and why an author would beg, bribe and kill for a good street team.

I’m going all guns blazing with the promotion of Magic and Medicine because I believe this book is good enough to be our breakthrough on the market, but yesterday proved what really matters is word of mouth. While I was writing Season’s War, I met reader-turn-friend and artist Reina, and every now and again, weContinue reading “Word of mouth–and why an author would beg, bribe and kill for a good street team.”

The last editing curve … and we cleaned the garage

This weekend is hugely crowded. We released the cover for Magic and Medicine  and I’m trying to promote Season’s War series left, right and centre. The paying job is seriously messed up with me playing the hero, but despite my best efforts, things went to sh… more often than not. Mark, on the other hand,Continue reading “The last editing curve … and we cleaned the garage”

Magic and Medicine – Cover Reveal

ARC OPEN SIGH UP HERE Danger doesn’t lurk in the shadows. It barges in and smacks you in the face. After years of working in the Emergency Department, Sara thought nothing could surprise her, but when the deceased victim of a stabbing opened his eyes and demanded his knife back, she knew her life hadContinue reading “Magic and Medicine – Cover Reveal”

Ups and Downs

Being a writer sometimes feels like you suffer from bipolar personality disorder. Yesterday, I came home from work too tired to even produce one coherent sentence, not to mention writing an elaborate plot for The Royal Inspector. Too tired to do anything but a couple of promo posts, I felt so bad about it thatContinue reading “Ups and Downs”

Sunday snippets Magic and Medicine- ARC open

‘Fuck! How do I combat something like that? Would ice help get rid of that mark? Or should I cut it out or say abracadabra? How can I save her when you aren’t there?’ Nina’s matter-of-fact approach left me speechless. I looked at Adam, who stood before the coffee machine, pretending to figure out itsContinue reading “Sunday snippets Magic and Medicine- ARC open”
