Made with love.
That’s right, my latest book is available to purchase for the low, low cost of nothing at all!
Just like all of my other books, The Godhand is now available for FREE on Smashwords! It will also be available on Smashwords affiliates (Apple, Barnes & Noble etc) within the next day or two.
The book will also be available via Amazon within the next few days. Due to their restrictions, it will cost $0.99 on their platform. This is unfortunately as low as I can set it with them.
The book is set in August 1972. A handprint a hundred kilometres across sitting in the Iraqi desert has just been discovered. On the other side of the world, three people unknowingly work to uncover its mysteries. Richard, an atheistic geologist, seeks fame and glory. Gary, a computer translation specialist, seeks to right the wrongs of his past. And Elaine, an investigator at NASA, seeks to uncover the truth. Together, they will discover the secrets of The Godhand… and humanity will never be the same again…
The book is my first foray into the Alternative History genre, and I can honestly say that I’ve never done so much research in my life!
Another first for me was writing the majority of The Godhand on my phone. A pro was definitely easy access even in the middle of a busy workday. A con, however, was auto-correct. No, Apple, the rocket was not about to ‘lunch’…
Well, enough of me prattling on! The Godhand is FREE and available now, so there’s no reason not to head over to https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/992411 to check it out!
Enjoy, and look forward to my next book!
That’s right, it is almost time!
The Godhand, my ninth book, will officially launch on Sunday, the 24th of November, around noon CAT.
This book, like all of the others I’ve published, will be available for FREE on smashwords.com
The book tells the story of a mysterious hand-print which is discovered in Iraq. This hand-print measures hundreds of kilometres in diameter, and its origins are a mystery. The story follows the exploits of several individuals across the world whose fates are inextricably linked to the hand-print.

Hey guys, girls and lizard people who have secretly infiltrated our society, I have good news!
The first draft of The Godhand is complete!
Yes, I know, I have previously stated that Son of Man is coming first, but plans change.
The new plan is to release The Godhand in all its glory on November 24th, 2019.
Son of Man, meanwhile, will probably be finished early next year.
Once these two books are out, I will start working on The Chronicles of New Eden 3!
The Godhand, for those of you who don’t know, is an alternate history novel set in 1972. It deals with the ramifications of a satellite taking a picture of a massive handprint in north-western Iraq.
Like all of my previous releases, The Godhand will be 100% FREE. No hidden costs, no paygates, no scary men coming to break your kneecaps.
Until the release, I will be periodically providing information about the world and characters, so stay tuned!
Hello all! As you can see, reports of my demise at the hands of an enraged hermit crab were mercifully untrue!
I am alive and well, and I’ve been working hard on several upcoming projects.
Son of Man is taking a bit longer than I had planned for due to the nature of its story. It is a very different book from anything I’ve written thus far in terms of setting and tone, so it has taken some time to get it right.
It should be released before the end of the year, with The Godhand following soon after. After that, I will begin working on The Chronicles of New Eden 3 and The Beggar Chronicles 2, due early to mid 2020.
That’s all for now!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, there is a very angry hermit crab asking for a rematch…
