Will Write For Food
Writing for a living is precarious. When you’re working full-time, the extra money that comes
from selling a book seems huge. Before I took the plunge as a full-time author,
I had a stable job – one I enjoyed – as a games programmer. With a stable job,

Lost Souls, and movie news...
Yes, it's been a while since I last added to my blog. Eight months! And in that time, the final final touches were added to Reviver book 2, which is now called Lost Souls, and the cover is below:     Release dates are a little complicated, as it's being pub...

Reviver Book 2... finished! (ish)
I put the finishing touches to Book 2 last week, you may be glad to hear. All done! Well. Um. Not quite , let's be honest, but it's off to the copyeditor now, meaning it'll come back with a few queries, lots of small fixes, and probably a humungous plot hol...

And the winner is...
    This year Reviver had the honour of winning the Audie Audiobook
award in the Paranormal category, and it struck me how it was very much a
shared honour – author, narrator, production team. Look behind the Audie in the picture above and you’ll see a BAFT...

You've gotta love Google Translate...
The paperback of the Spanish edition of Reviver is coming out in June: The tagline 'la muerte no los hara callar' is based on 'Death won't silence them', which the original UK hardback used. Google Translate renders this into something that makes me smile: ...

Too much fruit and veg is bad for you, says study
You remember the study that suggested the 5-a-day fruit and veg advice should really be 7-a-day? Or even 10-a-day? Well, I just read a study that suggested – using exactly the same methodology – that 7-a-day is WORSE for you than 3-a-day. Yes, THREE a day. ...
