April Newsletter

Hello from the North West!

I hope you're well and enjoyed the fantastic weekend weather. There's not been a cloud in the sky here, which is unusual on the edge of the Peak District. As usual, this is my monthly musing.

Books I've Been Reading

Sadly, this is a rather short list, I just don't have the time these days with all the writing. Recently I finished Unnatural Causes by Dr Richard Shepherd - he's a pathologist and this is an outline of his work history. Looking forward there's Black Summer by MW Craven coming soon and Dead Inside by Noelle Holten. I read an early ARC of the former and it's great and I've an early copy of the latter too.


Well, there's some stunning stuff on TV right now. Series 5 of Line of Duty and series eight of Game of Thrones have been keeping us entertained. Other stuff we're enjoying is Sex Education on Netflix (a surprisingly good story of teenage angst)and another surprise has been the sometimes gruesome Santa Clarita Diet.

A New Book

Gray 5, titled Pity The Dead, will be out on May 20th. It would have been a week earlier but I'm in Germany at an exhibition and one thing I learned from launching The Nudge Man was not to do so when distracted by another event (it was my 50th when Nudge came out).

In this latest installment, Gray discovers that junkies are dying but nobody really cares. There's a brutal new gang in town, replacing the bunch Gray arrested in 'Bury The Bodies' and Gray is trying to find his way in. I'll drop you a line around the launch with all the links.

Special Offers

I've several special offers running right now:

- The Konstantin box set (three books) is a ridiculous £2.99 / $3.99 or free on Kindle Unlimited. Pick it up HERE.
- The Gray four book box set is also free on KU HERE.
- The Eagle's Shadow is the first in a series about the Roman invasion of Britain which started not too far from Margate. It's 99p / 99c. find it HERE.
- The Nudge Man is down to £1.99, and is HERE.

As always, please feel free to drop me a line, I'm happy to talk. Otherwise, have a great week and all the best.

The Dog

You may recall me mentioning Mack, our dopey Wire Fox. Here he is (below) again...

All the best.
