They are all available from AmazonUK and US, Waterstone’s online, fishpond, The Book Depository and, in the States, Barnes & Noble.Continue reading “My booky-wooks”
Tag Archives: Is death really necessary?
JM interviewed by Big Al for the Indie View! Well chuffed.
“Where did you get the idea from? I’m a flitter and sipper: I pick up a sound bite here, a picture there, a quote from what’s in the news, a bit of interesting history, a dollop of current science, a snippet from my own life. I like my writing to be a rich stew ofContinue reading “JM interviewed by Big Al for the Indie View! Well chuffed.”
Shut the front door!
My first novel ‘Is death really necessary?’ (a surprisingly cheery ecothriller about the death of petrol-based transport and multi-drug resistant tuberculosis) is currently massively discounted down to £1.53on on Amazon UK. Continue reading “Shut the front door!”
Indie writers finally get help with publicity
I’m very excited to be a guineapig on a new scheme by Andy Farrell, which gives internet exposure to indie authors. Here’s a link to the website: ascribeme.com. Go and see what you think.

This just in …
A super new review of ‘Is death really necessary’ by the excellent Ant of SFBooks is now available here : http://sfbook.com/is-death-really-necessary.htm
Well, it’s taken me 3 days (off and on) but I’ve just succeeded (I think!) in uploading The Opus for use with Kindle readers. I shall now unwrap the wet towel from around my fevered brow (well, it was wet when I started – it seems to have steamed dry …) and reward myself withContinue reading “Kindling”
Long time no …
Gosh it’s hard to find interesting things to say about oneself. Especially on a regular basis. This just in, however: Apparently Janek Schaefer used a copy of ‘Is death really necessary’ in his installation for the International Festival held here in Milton Keynes in July of this year. Sadly it didn’t get included in theContinue reading “Long time no …”
