Mirror, Mirror: A Short Story

IceCubesHey guys, consider yourselves lucky this week because I’m posting a second story to the blog today. This one is an idea I’ve been kicking around for a while. I’ve been having thoughts about developing it into something longer, but I want to post the original piece up anyway because I think it works really well. 

In other news, I’ve just finished Stephen King’s Mr Mercedes, and I really had a good time with it. I’ll probably be posting some of my thoughts about it in the future.

My big eBook Freebie is still running until tomorrow, so be sure to click here for details and grab some free books for the kindle. More info about upcoming books soon. Until then, enjoy my latest story, Mirror, Mirror.

EDIT: Unfortunately, as this story has been published elsewhere, I’ve had to remove it temporarily. Sorry – Owen.

2014 Kindle Book Freebies

Morning folks,

I’ve been opening up the blinds and letting a breeze blow away the cobwebs in here this week. 2014 started out as a bit of a tough year, but now the worst of it is out of the way, I’ve been able to get back to writing. I posted a new short to the blog yesterday, so if you missed that be sure to take a look. Today I want to keep the ball rolling by telling you about my Kindle Store Freebies.

I like Amazon’s KDP Select programme, and I particularly like being able to set free days. It’s a joy having some of my fiction listed on Amazon, but for most short pieces I’d probably set the price lower than Amazon’s minimum of 99c if I could. I try to balance things out by using all of the free days Amazon provide me with, after all, most of those works were published for free here before they went on sale. With life getting in the way, I haven’t scheduled any free promotions this year at all, and so I’m making up for it with a big Free Promotion on all my books ending Saturday!

Grab them from the links below:

The second Timewasters story arrived later in 2012. For my next adventure, I wanted to tell a totally different sort of story. I tried to really explore a different side to the characters than I had in Christmas Past.
Harbour has strict laws against time travel and ignorance is no defence. But when Annie and her friends are put on trial for their crimes, they suspect the prosecutor might have another agenda.

A Christmas Present

time trial book coverToday is December 25th, that means a lot of you reading this will be celebrating Christmas with  me today. I’m in the UK, so it’s 6 in the evening here and Christmas is almost over, but a lot of you have almost the entire day left and I hope you have a great time. 

I don’t need much of an excuse to run an eBook freebie, but Christmas is always a good time to give, so if Santa brought you a kindle this year then you might like to know that you can download one of my stories absolutely free today and tomorrow. 

Time Trial is a science fiction story about three reluctant time travellers, imprisoned on a planet where time travel is strictly forbidden. You can buy it here: /
