    Erebus - The Blurb

    It's time for me to start nailing down the blurb for Erebus. As there is a substantial mystery component to it, it's quite tricky to give too much away without giving spoilers so a lot of what has to go into it is more thematic than actual facts, but give enough for a potential reader to...

    Some Review Analysis

    Was just thumbing through my audible reviews, and it occurred to me there is some interesting analytics that can be taken from it. The empirical stuff first. Much like on the main Amazon page, (and Audible, I understand, IS Amazon) it operates off a 1 - 5 star system. The primary difference...

    Great looking fan films and kick starters

    Book copy editing services

    I have re-released my book on Amazon for the last month and a half and am pleased to be getting great reviews with one reoccurring negative theme: The dreaded editing. I have, so far, made more than enough off of it to be able to run it through a professional editor and am quite happy to...

    I am half way through the first draft of my second novel which forms what is best described as a 'sidequel'. The first book is a science fiction that covers around 300 years of time, objectively and follows the adventures of one set of characters. (subjectively, due to the nature of their...
