Stormforce, a Col Sec giveaway

Image
Due to unforeseen circumstances Ronin will no longer be published through Imzadi which also means that the short story featuring Captain Tony Storm, Stormforce which preceded Ronin will also no longer be given away as a thank you to all those who downloaded Ronin as a pre-order from Amazon.
To remedy this I have published Stormforce myself on the Kindle and as promised it will be free. For the next five days Stormforce will be a free download but after that I will remove it and it will only be available through specific channels which I have yet to finalise.
Grab a copy today before the five day deadline is up of this action packed adventure featuring some of the best loved characters in the Col Sec Universe with a surprise guest appearance from someone special at the end.
Here's the link for Stormforce.

A retrospect.

Image
On Monday morning around 4.30 I became an orphan. Although not unexpected the shock of my Mum passing was still quite profound. She had been ill for quite some time and having to watch her deteriorate from the vibrant woman I grew up loving to the mere husk she became just before she passed was something no one should have to endure. My father passed away thirty five years ago and I was a very young twenty six year old man with a young family just finding his feet in the world. I was totally unprepared for the loss of a parent, and I say that with the full knowledge that no one can be truly prepared for that kind of a loss.  They say you should regret the things you do and not the things you don't do and I can understand that train of thought. If you want something do your utmost to achieve it, if it fails at least you can say you tried. Unfortunately the death of my father left me with the kind of regrets that can never be rectified. I regret never fully appreciating having a str…

The start of something huge

Image
I recently posted about the first book in the Col Sec series, Ronin being re-released through Imzadi Publishing who also published The Blackstar Gambit, book seven in the series. Now all the pre-order links are available for you to purchase the book when it comes out on November 16. Be the first to see what is sure to be regarded as the most action packed sci fi thriller series this decade and be one of the first to get the bonus material from Amazon. This bonus material is a short story which features some of the characters in Ronin. This short story, Stormforce is only available to those of you who pre-order Ronin through Amazon though so you don't want to miss out on this exclusive.

Here are the links to where the book can be pre-ordered.

Cover Reveal

Image
I had some welcome news this week, my publisher for some of the Col Sec series, Imzadi Publishing has told me that they have set a date for the release of the re-edited edition of Ronin which is the book that started the entire series off. Not only have they set the release date but they have given me the date that it can be pre-ordered from. On their website they also mention that all purchases of the book placed through Amazon will receive exclusive bonus material, I know what this material is but I'm not going to give that up just yet, let's keep the suspense growing a little longer. It would be interesting to see if anyone can guess what it might be though, if you have any ideas why not leave a comment.
One final thing they gave me was the new cover art for this book. Now this is something I'm particularly proud of, not because I made it but I did help conceive the idea behind it. The actual work was done by the remarkable Anita Dugan Moore of Imzadi who also did the c…

Jupiter Descending

Image
I've been meaning to watch Jupiter Ascending ever since it first came out in fact I was looking forward to seeing it in the cinema. That was before all the negativity that began to surface about the film. I must admit to being put off seeing it at the cinema and decided to catch it either on Blu ray or wait until it was shown on the TV. I finally caught up with it on Amazon video, I placed it on my Watch list to view whenever I got around to it and because I had a ton of things to do with work and my commitments to writing I kept putting it off. I started watching it a week or so ago but couldn't seem to fully invest myself into it so I decided to wait until later, hoping I would have a change of mind set. Finally I thought I'll do this and see if it was as bad as people said.
With an open mind I gave it a shot.
Was I disappointed?
Put it this way, it had a running time of 2hrs and 7mins and that's 2hrs and 7mins of my life I'll never get back.
One thing I can prai…

Bite the bullet

As a writer I wear many hats, when I wear my writing hat if I wear it jauntily to one side then I'm writing the Col Sec series of sci fi action adventures, if on the other hand the hat is tilted, jauntily to the other side then my other writing persona of Jack Dillon has control and I'm writing either the SI6 series or the ATLAS Force series. I've been wearing this hat constantly now for some time as Jack Dillon has just finished off two books, one for each series which are both now available, and I have just finished off another book in the Col Sec series and am writing another at the same time going over edits for Ronin from my publisher Imzadi, who hope to have this book out soon. Ronin is the first in the series and this will be a brand spanking new edition with all the trimmings you get from a publisher, new cover artwork, new trailer and all the paraphernalia that goes with it all. one of the many other hats I get to wear is that of a marketing professional, although…
