She’s Out, and She’s Not Playing Nice…

It’s release day!

The Visionary“You’re just as weak minded as everyone else. Just as easy to control.”

After generations of freedom from the administration’s rule, the slum women find themselves facing a census. But as officers try to list and tag them, their efforts are met with violent resistance.

Maeve needs to keep Faith safe, and hidden, but she has another demon to battle. Powerful psychic Corinn, the girl nobody wants, is playing deadly games, and no one’s safe from her influence.

Maeve’s learning to fight back, but her powers aren’t the only thing being unlocked, and she doesn’t have long to decide who to trust.

You can continue the Paper Duchess series by buying your copy at Amazon, iTunes, Nook, and Kobo, and adding it on Goodreads.

The Visionary Reviews


Cover Reveal: The Visionary

The Visionary

The Visionary is the third book in The Paper Duchess series, and continues the story of Maeve and the struggles of the resistance in the dystopian and oppressive city of Falside.

The Visionary returns to the slums, to reconnect with Maeve and her much-changed life. With the resistance in tatters, everyone is busy fighting their own demons, and Maeve’s comes in the form of a young psychic named Corinn. Maeve finds herself fighting back with the only weapon she has, as she seeks to protect herself and her adopted daughter from enemies on all sides.

Designed and created by Ben Farrow, the cover features another of his unsettling miniatures which he builds and photographs himself.

This is What Followed… Preorder News

AfterMy first short story collection has gone on preorder on Amazon.

‘After’ is a collection of post apocalyptic shorts, exploring the lives of those left behind after millions of people across the world simply disappear.

The blurb:
The end has already come. This is what followed.

People began to disappear. The first few could be explained away, but as the missing posters began to plaster every wall, every fence, every lamp post, they became impossible to ignore.

For those left behind, it was a matter of survival. Some opted out, unable to find a place for themselves in this new world. Others struggled on, trying their best to reclaim the lives they once had. And some people thrived.

This is a collection of their stories. The survivers, the deserted. Those still clinging to hope, and those who have abandoned it.

You can preorder your copy here.

Paperback Proof of The Matching

The Matching Paperback ProofMy paperback proof of The Matching arrived today, and it looks fantastic.

Releasing a book is always an amazing experience, especially as I’ve been dreaming of becoming an author since my childhood, but a digital release doesn’t quite live up to holding an actual book in your hand.

I’m hoping to have the paperback checked and put on sale to coincide with the digital release on June 10th. So whether you love your electronic gadgets, or you’re more old school and enjoy the smell of a real book, you’ll be able to continue with the series in just a week’s time. I’ll see you there…
