     It is with great pleasure that I am finally able to announce that today, I have signed a significant publishing deal with Amazon Publishing.

     Although the details are private at the moment, I can say that the project will be a trilogy based on British history, though as yet it does not have a finished title. The finer details are of course confidential but I would like to say that I am VERY happy with the deal and the professional way that all the people at Amazon have conducted negotiations with both myself and my agent, James Wills of Watson Little.
     It will be a few months until the first release but with a team of professional editors and cover designers on board from Amazon Publishing, the finished product will be up there alongside the best in the world with an amazing storyline to capture people's imagination.
     In the meantime, I will see if I can release an interim book (probably Roman IV) for all those who can't wait that long. (That needs to remain flexible so please be patient.)
     Hopefully this will be my breakthrough year and obviously, I would like to thank every single reader who helped me on my way. I would also like to thank the naysayers, for even when the going got tough, your doubts and criticisms made me stronger. Without all of you, supportive or critical, none of this would be possible.
     Thanks again to everyone concerned, every single one of you.
     Best regards
     Now, where's that champagne?

Face Book Advertising

     It now seems very likely that in 2015, any promotion of any product on face book pages will be deemed as advertising and will be removed by face book or possibly charged for. 

     Now, I don't mind paying for promotion as it's only fair, and have done on several occasions when a new book is actually released, but many of my posts are simply snippets, information about the next book, sales ranks or updates about my writing journey, that sort of thing. If these are also removed, as now seems likely, it will be very difficult to keep you wonderful people who enjoy the books abreast of what is happening.

     Therefore, I will probably start using this blog site more  to update the readers. If you want to be kept in the loop, get some freebies etc, please hit the follow button below.

      Alternatively, you could send me an e mail and I will add you to a mailing list.  As soon as release dates are announced, I will send everyone an e mail.

(no spam, I promise)

My E mail is -

My very best regards

For my Wife

I wish I was a wealthy man,
a multi-millionaire.
With cars and gems and wads of cash 
and houses everywhere.
My windows would be diamonds,
my floorboards would be gold.
My ceilings lined with dollar bills, 
a wonder to behold
I’d pay my bills with rubies,
my paintings would be rare.
The only mess you’d ever see
are sapphires everywhere.
But even if my life should change 
and all my dreams come true.
The money would mean nothing if
the cost was losing you.
So when I am a millionaire
The richest in the land
I’ll bin it in an instant, 
to forever hold your hand.
