Star Art

Just a quickie for anyone whose interested:

You can now see naked copies of the art from the covers for OrphansHand and Journey of the Star Plague Journals on my deviantART gallery here.

Go check ’em out 🙂

Book 2!

The second instalment in The Star Plague Journals is now available on Amazon (click the cover image to the left). As mentioned in Sunday’s post, you can only get the Kindle edition for now. Watch this space for the physical edition.

His Staying Hand, out now. Buy it people… 😉

Antici…pation

I’m absolutely useless at the self-promotion thing (probably why I’m not currently sat typing this in my west wing library, whilst the tiger quietly mauls the Gautier rug) let’s have a bash.

…Drum roll… fanfare (fireworks)…

As mentioned in previous posts (I think?) I’ve been tied up of late in furious edit mode. His Staying Hand, the second instalment of The Star Plague Journals nears completion. It was actually quite exciting putting the final touches to the last chapter (I know, how sad am I?) before I began the onerous task of compiling and formatting that is necessarily part of publishing your own Kindle book.

Whilst I go through the final ‘i’ dotting and ‘t’ crossing I wanted to share the cover with you (below) and also offer a short sample from the book itself here. I hope you enjoy both!

I’m anticipating the book will be officially available on Amazon in Kindle format by this time next week, with the physical edition to follow. This will include an aside that I’m publishing separately in the e-format, hence the delay on the doorstop version. So apologies to those of you who like your literature old school, I beg just a little more of your patience. For the rest of you: not long to wait.

Watch (as they say) this space…

Da da-da da da daarrr!!!

*With much pomp and ceremony…

Ladies and Gentlemen, it with great pleasure that I present to you: my book.

The work is entitled The Orphans Revolt (no, that’s not a grammatical error), for those of you that might have missed that. It’s the first part of the Star Plague Journals (of which part two I am currently penning). I have included links to the side for both the UK and US editions (at the top of my menu bar, on the left of your browser window), as I seem to get a lot of traffic on this site from across the pond, for some reason. (Thank you to any of you swinging through – it’s always nice to feel appreciated!)

For anyone feeling particularly lazy as they read this, the links are as follows:

For the Kindle editions, go here for the UK version, and here for the US.

Those of you without an e-reader, or who are simply feeling flush, can go here for the UK edition, or here for the US.

(It’s worth noting that the paperbacks, because of the nature of the service Createspace offer, are rather expensive. So I really would recommend the Kindle edition, unless you’re a genuine old-school bibliophile.)

For anyone who is an Amazon Prime member, my book is also enrolled in the Kindle Select program, making it available to lend for free over the next 90 days – go check it out! Tell your friends! Tell the guy that always stands in front of you in the coffee shop. The more the merrier (but then I would say that).

All that remains for me to say, is ‘enjoy’.

PS. Please do keep an eye out here for news (and previews) of part two across the coming year. I’ll also be posting conceptual artwork as and when my brain decides its needs visuals to sort through something, and or I need a break from the keyboard. Speak to you all again soon.
