Getting Closer

an Excerpt from “Eternally & Evermore” People have asked me before now about this book’s title. “It’s a bit soppy,” they say. “Where did you get it?” The answer is… long winded. But the best way to show you is with a couple of excerpts from the book, like this one: A new song began, Read More …

A Wounded Heart – Progress Made

So, I’ve picked up and re-started work on A Wounded Heart, the 3rd (and I hope final) book in the Paul Robertson series. So far, I’ve written Twelve and half thousand words. AGM was in the order of ninety-six thousand words and ATS was over one hundred and twenty-five thousand. So that means I’m possibly somewhere 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 …

My Thoughts on Charlotte’s Secret Cover

There’s an old saying that goes, “Never judge a book by its cover.” Thing is, a lot of people do. A book’s cover is so often thing that draws a reader’s attention. Certainly, in the world of paper books on the shelves in book stores and supermarkets, the cover is the thing that jumps off the Read More …

A Few Updates and Future Plans

I was chatting with my PA, Ashley, yesterday (still feels weird referring to her that way. She’s my friend and she helps me out. PA sounds far too ‘official’ for my liking. I’m not important enough to need a PA). She had just finished reading Kissed by a Rose and as well as chatting about Read More …

Bugger it, It’s Back to Work Time

So, the festive period is over, which means for me that it’s back to the office and back to my old schedule. Which for me means less writing. Unfortunately. Over the holiday period, when I stayed in France with my In-Laws, I was happily able to write much more than at any period in recent 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 …

Recent Reviews for “The Big Four Ohhh!”

Continuing this ‘series’ about recent reviews of some of my books on Amazon, there have been a couple of really good 5-Star reviews of The Big Four Ohhh! First up, Ashley said… Wow wow wow !! I picked this up to read as a short story while I was in between novels and Im so Read More …

Amazon Reviews for “Eternally & Evermore”

It should be no real surprise to anyone who knows me or has visited this site before, that it’s been some considerable time since I last posted a blog entry. I’m not going to apologise for that, even though I would have done once upon a time. Frankly, since I’ve finally worked out how to Read More …

Excellent Review for “A Good Man”

Patricia Maia (Facebook, Goodreads, Amazon) has written a really, really good review of A Good Man. You can read it for yourself here. But I’d like to quote some of it if I may. Very well written, very concise, full of various details that makes you live the story as if you were one of Read More …
