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?

The First Fear Audiobook and an appeal

Hi folks I hope you’re well this balmy October. Just a quick update, I have some news to share regarding the audiobook edition of The First Fear and there’s some sad news coming from the SFF writing community.

Audiobook in the works

First off, after a few months of searching I’ve finally discovered a narrator I really like to do the audiobook version of The First Fear. I’ll be revealing more next month but I’m hoping for a late January, early February release date.

In other news I’m still waiting for The First Fear to be reviewed for the SPFBO competition so technically I’m still in the running! As for the writing side of things I’ve not made as much progress as I’d like and after several read throughs I’ve decided to rework what I’ve done so far for Sundered Crown Book 4. Getting the first draft right first go is a rare thing so I’m not too concerned.

The SFF Community Coming Together

Lastly, there is sad news in the SFF author community. A fellow SPFBO author Brandon Barr is in the final stages of terminal leukaemia, and sadly does not have much time left.

The community is rallying behind him and his family and is using its influence and reach to try and ensure that Brandon’s wife and children are looked after following his passing. To that end a GoFundMe campaign has been set up for him so if you can, please donate anything you can spare.
