Exciting news!

The free days will be the 12th and 13th of June. Don’t worry, I will announce it again closer to the dates and again as the event begins. Use the social network links on the left to follow me to make sure you get the announcements! You don’t want to miss out.


This is the final release version of the book, re-edited and repolished, featuring extra material and proper content pages. If you have previously downloaded Astronomicon: Voyage of the Elysian or Astronomicon: The Discovery, then you simply have to get this one.

Astronomicon: The Beginning is out!

Astronomicon: The Beginning - Front CoverA first novel is rarely going to be an author’s best work and, like most authors, my writing skills have improved with each novel. This isn’t usually a problem but as my first three books formed a series I can’t just forget the first one or two, leaving my future readers to just jump in part way through the overall story. That left me with only one solution – a revamp and repolish. So now, after many weeks of work, I am relaunching the first two books (Voyage of the Elysian and The Discovery) in a shiny new single volume.


Both have been re-edited, enhanced and augmented before being merged. It gave me opportunity to include more of the details from the original planning and enhance the dialogue (not my strong point back when I wrote Voyage of the Elysian). On top of all that I also sorted out exciting new front cover art.


The result, Astronomicon: The Beginning, is a much more worthy start to the Astronomicon series and is even more enjoyable than before. Buy it now in your local Amazon site:

The Beginning (Front cover art)The finished book has just been uploaded to Amazon, so it should only be a matter of hours now.


This is the culmination of weeks of intensive work to revamp Astronomicon: Voyage of the Elysian and Astronomicon: The Discovery into a single volume. A great deal of editing, proofreading and polishing has resulted in book which is almost 5,000 words longer than the old volumes added together.


Anyone who has already read the first two books will find a lot of material in this new book that they have not previously seen, both in terms of plot and background material. Soon after the book is available for sale, I will be announcing one or more (is one ever enough?) free download events so that my existing readers don’t have to pay again to get the latest version.


I will post Yahoo links as soon as I have them.
