Today I released new covers for The Benevolent Deception and The Assyrian Contraband, which led me to overhaul other aspects of my marketing. This included updates to the back cover blurbs for the books and my website content. I certainly feel the covers bring a fresh look and better align with the techno-thriller, espionage and action adventure aspects of the stories. I hope you like the new style.
The Assyrian Contraband is a prequel novella to The Benevolent Deception and features Simon Ashcroft before he was embroiled in an international conspiracy of cyberterrorism and global chaos. I’m giving the novella away for free to anyone who signs up to my mailing list in either Kindle, ePub or PDF format.
My mailing list is infrequent, predominately to announce books as I release them and for the occasional news or competition. I’d be honored if you join, as it allows me to engage directly with readers like yourself who are interested in my books.
On other news I’m about two-thirds of the way through The Benevolent Conflict and aiming to get it out by the end of the year. So far I’ve written an action sequence on a train journey through Western India, and shootout in the slums of Mumbai, and a terrorist bombing in Abu Dhabi. Simon, Casey, Conner and Peri are all converging and their interactions may not be what you expected. I’m certainly surprised by what’s happening and I’m writing it!
I’ve recently been interviewed by fellow author, Andrew Warren, on his website. If you are interested in gaining some insights into the mind of a thriller author like me, please check it out.
That’s all for now. More news as I progress further into The Benevolent Conflict.
