A New Cover for The Ghost of Normandy Road (Haunted Minds I) (2018 update)

The Ghost of Normandy Road was released in 2015. I liked the original cover, so I have kept the same artwork here, however, I though the font could be more prominent, so I have worked with Angie Alaya of Pro-EBook Covers, and this is the result.

I trust you like it – the ebook version has already been updated, and the paperback will be updated imminently. There’s even an audiobook version in the works, so stay tuned.

My new book, the fifth of the Haunted Minds series, is released on 30th July 2018. Keep updated on that, here

NEW RELEASE: Dawn of the New Breed

dawn_cover_final_with_text_rz

This Saturday, 19th November sees the official release of the prequel in the Tale of Vampires Series. Fans of Marcus, Rocco and Juliana will get to see the true origins of the story’s head vampire, and how she came to be one.

The book is in two parts, the first being a historical piece detailing a time of war between England and Scotland, and a love that was forbidden. This sets the scene for what happens next, and as those events unfold, it is then over to part two to work as a contemporary vampire novel that fits into modern day.

As a story, it was ambitious but I feel I have achieved what I set out to do. I would go as far as to say that Dawn of the New Breed is my best book. As to where it fits into the series, it precedes Murderous Little Darlings (which is the official first book in the series) but fans can see links through to the current latest story, Reunion of the Blood.

Now that its release is upon us, we can have fun trying to predict how it will all end. For now, you can discover how it began.

Releasing 19th November on Amazon, Nook, Kobo and Apple iBooks. But you can put in an early order for the paperback here

Reunion of the Blood now released + Win a book news!!

rotb_cover
A vampire contemplating her doom, or next plan of attack?

Reunion of the Blood is the fifth story in the Tale of Vampires series, and it was officially released this week on Monday 25th April 2016. As some readers will have observed, I do pay tribute to certain people in the dedication part of my books. Such people are made of friends, family, authors, and of course, fans, without whom the books would not have an audience.

One of the reasons I started writing was to actually see if I could do it. People around me believed that I could, so my jumbled notes about martial arts eventually became my first book, and whilst I planned to do a follow up, for some reason, I started to write fiction.

A book cannot be forced out of you. Like martial arts moves, it is not so much a case of ‘I am throwing a punch’, it is more like the punch is happening through you – a force of nature, if you will. Writers, I believe, are a force of nature. Those writing in the hopes of getting a quick buck are unlikely to realise their dream. And I know some quality writers out there that may not get the financial rewards they deserve.

But for those that stay true, and try to write the very best book that they can, they will find their audience.

When I outlined my vampire series, looking back, it was rather ambitious. Seven books detailing the lives of a group of vampires. Could I really do it? Now that I have completed book five, it is astonishing to me that I have gotten this far. But I think the series has its own set of fans, and it has been a joy to write.

So I hope you will give book five a try, and do check out the earlier books in the series too.
