A Few Days Away

I had a few days away with the family last week. It was a nice relaxing time as evidenced by my FitBit. Usually, on a workday, I’ll do somewhere between twelve and fifteen thousand steps. For the first two days of last week, I did less than five thousand on each day. Yep, I was Read More …

Bobby’s “Movie” Career

One of the fun things about writing “The Truths We Live” has been coming up with different types of scenes for Bobby’s burgeoning “Movie Career”. If you’ve read “The Lies We Lead” you may recall he filmed an audition with Amber where she played a teenager in her bedroom reading a dirty book on her Read More …

What I’ve Been Up To

It’s been over two years since I last published anything. That was The Lies We Lead. It’s been over three years since I released the second book in the Paul Robertson Saga, A Tortured Soul. So what have I been doing in the meantime, when’s my next book going to come out and what the Read More …

Unforgivable

It’s been just about six months since my last post on this blog, over a year since my last post on the “From Across the Pond” blog and about five months since a post on “The Grumpy Blog”. All of which is unforgivable. I have tried to keep up a presence on Facebook and twitter Read More …

WIPs Update

I’ve set myself a target word count for both A Wounded Heart and The Truths We Live and I’m working towards having a first draft of both finished by the end of 2016. Currently, both books are just under 20% ‘finished’ – if you go by my target. Of course, I’ve never been very good Read More …

Why “The Lies We Lead” Isn’t Everywhere Yet

The Lies We Lead is currently only available on Amazon, but isn’t available on Kindle Unlimited, which some people have told me they think it a bit odd—why give Amazon exclusivity without reaping the ‘benefits’ of the KDP Select programme? The simple answer to this is that I haven’t awarded Amazon exclusive rights to the Read More …

To Sequel or Not To Sequel

Right now, The Lies We Lead is around the 60,000 word mark, putting it firmly in the “Novel” category, although if I were to wrap up the first draft in, say, 10,000 words, it would make it the shortest novel I’ve written in a few years. Kissed by a Rose, Eternally & Evermore and A Good Read More …

Is there such a thing as too much sex?

Is there such a thing as too much sex? Not in real life, obviously, that would be a stupid assertion. I’m talking about in fiction and in particular in erotic novels. Is it possible for a novel which bills itself as ‘erotic’, to have too much sex in it at the expense of plot and Read More …

New WIP – Quick Extract

So, I mentioned on Facebook earlier today that my WIP is currently at 12000 words and I asked if anyone wanted to read a “raw” and “unedited” sample. And, perhaps not surprisingly, the consensus was… “Hell Yeah!” So here it is. This comes with a couple of warnings. 1) Adults only, obviously. 2)It’s unedited – Read More …
