The Clouds of Escalion is out!

You heard that right. I recently returned from the event Magic Oxygen Publishing were doing, and it is glorious to hold a physical copy of my second book in my hands. The talk I gave, along with my wonderful editor Izzy Robertson at the event, was recorded and with luck I will be posting a link to that in a few days.

The Clouds of Escalion is now available. That’s right, there are two books with my name on them sitting on store shelves.


The hilarious thing about such events is that I leave them so energised for writing the next book that I am trapped in an eternal loop, continuing to write until I die, or mankind runs out of resources, or all the stars go out. Oh well, I can at least enjoy the ride. Go find the book, give it a whirl, and please remember to maintain regular breathing throughout. Human bodies generally need that oxygen thing to survive, and I don’t want anyone passing out and dying before the finale. That would be sub-optimal.


The Adventures of an Author and Editor talk, March 26th

Book launch is almost upon us, folks. On launch day for The Clouds of Escalion, I will be at the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize in Lyme Regis. As well as having a stall and generally being around for book signings and light conversation, I will be on stage for a talk-

The Adventures of an Author and Editor: How to Breathe Convincing Life into a Dystopian Sci-fi Adventure

More information about the event, which is free by the way, is over here. The event will be livestreamed for those in more distant regions of the world, so keep an eye on the link above for a link on the day. This marks my second public appearance as an author, so sort of a big deal. I hope to see some of you there!

The Clouds of Escalion- March 26th, 2016


Ah, the whole family. Soon, we shall have our vice. The Clouds of Escalion will be flying onto shelves on the 26th of March. Last night I performed the final touches; a dedication and summaries. I finally had to decide on a title for the series, something I had been mulling over for a while- and I am proud to present The Dragon Creek Series to the world.

Much excitement. Very reading.
