Happy New Year, one and all!
That feels weird saying it in February…
Anyway, good start to the year so far. Had a book signing at Waterstones in Macclesfield just recently and it turned out to be a great success! Sold and signed ten copies, which equalled my result at the WHSmith book signing last November and sold out the number of copies the Waterstones team ordered! Truly great indeed, and I met some new people who took the chance to enter the world of The Saviour. Thank you to everyone who purchased my novel and talked with me on the day, and a BIG thank you again to the staff at Waterstones in Macc.
Now…I ask for all your support again. The voting for The People’s Book Prize for Best Fiction (Winter Collection 2011/12) closes at the end of the month, and needless to say, I’d be thrilled to actually win it. PLEASE vote for The Saviour at the link below:
Also, I have written a brand new short story called The Motivation Prize to promote my nomination for the People’s Book Prize. There’s a text version available to read at DeviantArt and an audiobook version on YouTube. Please check them out on the following links.

And finally, keep following me on Facebook!
I’ve got an actual gig lined up soon (NOT my AWFUL Poems…ON STAGE!!!), at Congleton Library. This is in the works at the moment, so stay tuned! The next update should have news about signed copies of The Saviour for sale on eBay and My Prose getting a bit of a revamp. That’s all for now!
