My latest release, Nightmare Fuse is now available for the Kindle through Amazon.
This is something different for me, a bit of an experiment. It’s a single short story, akin to one episode of a TV show. The idea is that each ‘episode’ will be a self-contained story but with shared characters and possible longer plot arcs.
The set-up is that a new, illegal street drug promises to allow a merging of minds. However in some cases it leads to the users becoming rapped in a shared virtual world constructed from their own worst nightmares.
If you have Kindle Unlimited then Nightmare Fuse is free to read, so give it a go and let me know what you think. Would you like to see more?
My latest book, Zombie Shards is now out.
The book follows the first day of a zombie uprising in a small English town. It’s written as a series of interlocking stories with different main characters. Some will survive, others won’t.
I think that the linked story approach is a good way to tackle a subject like zombie apocalypse. It allows me as a writer and you as a reader to experience a variety of viewpoints and experiences.
If this book proves popular, I’d happily write a second one telling the further stories of these characters and others.
