Chapter 4: The Three Pigs

There’s no doubt about who’s in charge around here. Anyone who fucks with the Dark Queen doesn’t just get executed – that’s just the beginning. But in certain communities around this city, there are some that think they’re the ones in charge. Not necessary above Her Eminence, just rubbing shoulders with her. And if youContinue reading “Chapter 4: The Three Pigs”


Chapter 3: Collection

“There’s a lot of dangerous men in this city. Half of them ain’t nearly as dangerous as they think they are – they just know how to talk the talk, and survive long enough to keep on gassing. But there’s one bloke who’s really bloody dangerous – to himself as much as the rest ofContinue reading “Chapter 3: Collection”

Chapter 2: Shoes and cigarettes

“As powerful as Her Royal Highness may be, she can’t be everywhere at once and she won’t concern herself with the little things. Every dictator has their lapdogs, and putting them in an official uniform don’t make them any less detestable. The people might think the police are there for our protection, but those ofContinue reading “Chapter 2: Shoes and cigarettes”

Chapter 1: A Royal Guest

Once upon a time. That’s how these stories start. Except that’s a load of bollocks, innit? They happen all the bloody time. There’s always something going on in this city, all these bullshit agendas at work. Everyone’s their own hero, and someone else’s villain. And there ain’t no ‘Happily Ever After’ neither – just theContinue reading “Chapter 1: A Royal Guest”

Mark your calendars. Wandless Day is coming. For reasons I’ll explain on the day, October 14th is Wandless Day. To mark the first iteration of what will hopefully become an annual event, I’m running a few activities that may be of interest – including two opportunities to win a paperback copy of Wandless.

Still writing, but not writing writng

Those who are signed up to my newsletter already know this, but wanted to clarify what’s happening here as well. Firstly, the newsletter will soon go monthly rather than fortnightly. You’ll get one in two weeks on October 6th, and then on the 6th of every month. There may be the occasional bonus email (I’mContinue reading “Still writing, but not writing writng”

Could I ask you a favour?

I’ve recently learned that if a book has 50 or more reviews on Amazon, it gives said book more ‘weight’ for the site’s algorithm. Or, to put it in plain English, it shows up in search results more often. I’ve said before that reviews are important for indie authors like myself, and this is justContinue reading “Could I ask you a favour?”
