I have just finalised the editing on a 15,000 word Novella called SALIGIA. In it, you will find a series of short stories with a common theme (The Seven Deadly Sins) and character. I wrote it as a device to introduce the Tauran Demon Pantheon, mythology linking the Urionverse and in order to link the stories within Sudden Dearth to the legend of Urion and his Belt.

SALIGIA will be published shortly on Smashwords and will be FREE. In this way I hope people who do not know the Sudden Dearth books will gain some background and an inkling of what they might expect pruchasing Sudden Dearth itself.

Just remember that SD is available right NOW on Smashwords and the link is:

At last, Sudden Dearth has been published on Smashwords. You can find it at:

A huge thank you to my wife for her formatting skills, and patience of course. Also to all of you who have been free with your advice, comments and encouragement.

The cover art, courtesy of Diggory Steele-Perkins, is awesome.

I can now say I am a self-published author.

Here is an update on the whole Sudden Dearth Saga. Apart from the fact that it's my birthday, I've had a great meal, loads of pressies and am sat in front of the fire with an ice-cold Gin Tonica - chilling, big time.

So, SD is now ready for the big test. SDII is on the Editor's Table and SDIII - A Leap Of Faith is close behind. SDIV - El Juego-The Game is on a re-write as I didn't like where it was going, and the story needs me on board. I will begin posting SDIII here shortly.

As soon as SD is accepted format wise for SW, I will let you all know. Thanks for lsitening and those who made comments - it's all been helpful, and please keep up the process for the next books.

I will be back in the swing of posting very soon.

Smashwords Part II

At last! Yep, I have finished the edit and last spellcheck, so it's an upload tomorrow and if no more delays Sudden Dearth should be up and running on time. Just need to make sure the artwork meets the necessary demands from SW in terms of title and size.

Once it's up, I'll let you all know. Next will be the turn of A Guiding Light, we'll see how long that one takes...

Well, my extremely long and drawn-out journey to publication on Smashwords appears to be almost here. My long-suffering wife has taken the formatting out of my hands and has done a much, much better job than my previous attempts.

So, for those who have kept the faith, I can truly say that before the end of the month, Sudden Dearth will be available on Smashwords.

Please feel free to sound the trumpets, clash the symbols or whatever is necessary to prepare a relatively unsuspecting world...
