The Summer Sale is already in its third week and this week book 1 in the Sundered Crown Saga is on sale for just 0.99p/c.

First in a series: The Kingdom of Delfinnia is plunged into darkness after its royal family is assassinated. When Luxon emerges as the first wizard in a century, he’ll have to join a band of noble allies and fulfill his destiny as the prophesied hero. Perfect for fans of Raymond E. Feist!

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

A realm torn asunder by civil war will give rise to a hero. The Kingdom of Delfinnia is in chaos. After Assassins kill the king and his family, the barons now battle one another for the crown. Unknown to them, one heir yet lives. As the civil war worsens, dark things begin to stir in the vast Eclin mountains.

Horrors long thought destroyed have returned and led by an ancient evil begin to march upon the war-torn kingdom. Meanwhile, in the mage city of Caldaria and as all hope seems lost, a young man named Luxon will discover his powers. The first wizard for a century, he is the man who will one day be known as the Legendary and the hero will give the realm its greatest king.

Sent on a quest to find the hidden heir, Luxon teams up with the legendary monster slayer, Ferran of BlackMoor, the deadly yet beautiful Witch Hunter Sophia Cunning and the noble Knight of Niveren, Kaiden of the Marble shore.

Together they travel the realm battling deadly monsters, assassins, and the most feared enemies of them all, the servants of the dark lord Danon himself, the evil N’Gist cult.

The Heir to the Sundered Crown is a heroic fantasy tale filled with action, battles and magic that will ignite the imagination and set the stage for an epic confrontation between the light and the darkness.

The First Fear on Sale for just 0.99p/c

It’s sale time again folks, this time my epic fantasy The First Fear is available to buy for just 0.99p/c from Amazon, Apple, Nook, Kobo and more retailers.

Here’s the blurb to entice you into getting yourself a copy. If you love creative world building, super powered beings and plenty of action this is the book for you!


The Supreme rules the world.

For years beyond counting the people have lived in fear and served her will while she reigns with an iron fist. Her servants the Venerable Chamber and her feared Hollowed stalk the land hunting those who may have the Power to challenge her. The Empowered Ones.

Once, they defended the world from all terror using their abilities to harness emotions into supernatural abilities. Now only a few remain, but hope is not yet lost.

Elian, a young man living at the edge of the Imperium discovers he too possesses the Power with devastating consequences for both himself and the people he loves. Forced to flee from the Supreme’s most deadly agent The First Fear, Elian encounters a ragtag band of rebels known as the Liberators and a group of Gifted led by the charismatic Empowered One, Vavius who believes that the key to overthrowing the Supreme lies in the ruins of the ravaged lands of the once mighty Kingdom of Aeranyth.

Can Elian survive long enough to develop his newfound abilities and help them turn the tide against the Supreme or will he die trying?

Release Date pushed back to December

Hi all, I’m afraid I have pushed back the release date for Voyage for the Sundered Crown to the end of December.

For my own sanity and to ensure the book is as good as I can make it I feel this is a necessary move. The new lockdown in the UK and other issues and pressures has made things tough on the writing side of things.

Those of you who have pre-ordered the release will automatically be changed to the new date. Thank you.

The October Update! Cats, Voyages, Vikings and Monsters!

2020 has felt a bit like a perpetual Halloween for many thanks to the pandemic that is impacting all of our lives.

Get the Nightblade for FREE!

This year’s festivities are likely to be very muted compared to other years (much to the dismay of my wife!). As the Nightblade is the spookiest book I have, it’s available for free from today until the 20th of October.

Meet Merli the Cat!

Elsewhere we have a new addition to my household! Meet Merli, the kitten. She’s a playful little critter who has brought a lot of fun during these rather depressing times.

Betrayed.
Hunted.
The Liberators defiant stand at the city of Asta has sparked the fires of resistance in the downtrodden people. Slaves, serfs and even members of the aristocracy have risen against the regime and flock to the Liberator banner.
As conflict spreads across the world, the Supreme’s gaze is fixated on Elian more than ever. Reeling from his mentor’s betrayal and battle with the First Fear he is hunted relentlessly by Hollowed and Venerable Chamber Seekers.
The only person who can help Elian is a mysterious Empowered One–who he’s not even sure he can trust. Terrible secrets await. Secrets about himself. Secrets that could herald the end of all things.

Temple of Arrival is the second book in the exciting Empowered Ones fantasy series. If you like action, sprawling battlefields, and power enhanced heroes, then you’ll love this series.

-Reviews for Temple of Arrival-
‘The Temple of Arrival is a fantastic sequel to The First Fear. From the opening chapter, we’re thrown right back into the action as Elian and the Liberators, along with their Gifted allies, battle the forces of the Supreme.

‘Just like the first book, the action sequences were gripping as were the plot twists. We learned a lot more about the origins of the Power which really set the scene for the dramatic closing chapters.’

‘If you’re a fan of well written fantasy with interesting characters and settings, then check both of these books out.’

‘A very strong sequel to the first novel which grips the reader from the outset. Usually the second book in a series is weaker than the first – however I would go as far as to say that this one is even better than the first novel.’

‘Matthew’s ability to world-build is amazing and you can see all of the different literary and fantasy elements in this book – coupled with his capacity to shock the reader and provide plot twists at every turn.’
