News and Project Update


News - 6th May 2018


Curious and Camping is an erotica novel which features two young men going on holiday together on a voyage of discovery. When they set off it is ostensibly to hook up with girls. Sexual adventures are on the horizon.


Amsterdam Calling and Ten Days in Panama are the first of my books to be published in paperback. I will produce more titles in paperback in the coming months and highlight the titles here in my news updates.


A few introductory offers for anybody who happens this way and uses Kindle:


A Life of Choice - Part One is reduced to 99p (and the equivalent in other currencies), and will remain at the low price.


Highland Games - 1  of my erotica novella series is 99p.


Beyond The Law: Formation - the first of the trilogy is 99p.


Humour: An Anthology of Poetry is 99p.


All my titles have Amazon-preview/buy option buttons. You are taken to your local Amazon - no commitment. There is an alternative universal link on my websites using BookLinker.


My prices continue to range between £0.99 / $0.99 and £2.49 / $3.49.

Credibility comes before financial gain.




- Codename: Nightshade is a standalone thriller which is an extension of the Beyond The Law trilogy.


- Czech Mate is a thriller, based in Scotland and the Czech Republic. The story is in the early stages and will be due publication in 2018.


- One Man, Two Mission: and other stories will be my next collection of twelve short stories of mixed genre.


- Quiet Night Inn: and other erotic stories is my next collection of short stories in this genre.


I'm also working on stories for inclusion in the next collections by the Indie Author Support and Discussion group. The books the group produces raise funds for charity.
