Paperback writer

Now that Amazon have sorted out their UK distribution, you can now get the paperback version of One of Us direct from Amazon UK. So that means a stable price (£7.99), and normal Amazon delivery options, like free delivery. Or next day delivery, because you're just so desperate to get your hands on a copy.

Flash. And also, Bang.

Well, that's a pleasant surprise: my very very short crime story Search History has won the Flashbang competition. Many thanks to the organisers, Sarah Hilary in particular and also to CrimeFest for the prize, two tickets to CrimeFest 2013. Very much looking forward to that, and I haven't even seen the line-up yet. Will be my first con-type thing.

Nice review for Nowhere To Go, too. Turned out to be a good day.

The Other Room

Want to read a collection of weird fiction that's as good as anything I've read in the past year? What's more, do you want to read it for free?

Well, dear reader, your wishes have come true. Get yourself here and find out how to get a copy of James Everington's fantastic collection The Other Room. If you want to know why you should, read my review of it from last May. Trust me, James is going to do Big Things and if you read it now you can be all smug and 'yeah, of course I was into them way before they released their first single'.

One of Us - Reviews

Lovely review of One of Us over at Indie Ebook Review. Quite apart from the fact that it's very positive (and thoughtful, and perceptive), I really like that the reviewer got it. If you know what I mean.

Update on things previously mentioned - now through to the final shortlist of 10 in the Flashbang competition, and sadly Nowhere To Go didn't win the Spinetingler Best Short Story collection review, but not really sadly as it was a thrill to be shortlisted and Alan Heathcock's Volt looks a truly worthy winner.
