A Christmas welcome!

Updated December 2022

This was one of my first blogs, and was written to celebrate the publication of my first novel. I’ve now edited it substantially so that it makes more retrospective sense.

I hadn’t publicised my website at all when I wrote the original version of this blog, so I said I assumed that people arriving at it over the Christmas fortnight were probably friends or relatives of mine, and I’d bludgeoned them into looking at it!

I thanked them for visiting the blog, and expressed the hope that I’d got them interested enough to read the first part of my book (click here to use my online book reader). If they really were interested, I added, they could click the front cover of Alternative Outcome on this page, which would take them the book page on Amazon.

The cover design that you can see for Alternative Outcome has been slightly revised since I first posted this blog. It’s broadly the same as before, but has better text positioning, and no longer features diamonds scattered on the left-hand side. Some readers told me they thought these were bubbles – which made the book appear to be a more “frothy” affair than I intended.

When I wrote this blog I said I was mulling over the possibility of publishing an earlier stand-alone novel, Escape Sequence, as a follow-up. In the event, didn’t; I felt it simply wasn’t good enough. But since then I’ve published five new books instead.

However, I did massively revise and streamline Escape Sequence, and I still have a lot of fondness for it. I’ve been offering it free to people who sign up to join my mailing list. Maybe I’ll publish it one of these days.

And meanwhile, as I write this new version of the blog in 2022 I’m limbering up to publish my seventh book, and the sixth in the Mike Stanhope series.

    So far, I like it. Just read the first few chapters, then the dogs told me it was time for their walk. Back now, looking forward to settling down to some more over a cup of tea…..
