Jax is Back!

And at last! Jax Marlin - To Catch A Marlin is out.

In the tail end of the 24th Century, Special Inspector Michael Pedroni pursues Jax Marlin,
a beautiful and elusive vigilante. It’s a wild cat and mouse chase that will take him from Earth
to the Bacchus Dome and beyond.

Jax Marlin is not your average criminal. She seeks out evil-doers and law-breakers,
doling out justice in whatever way she sees fit. But lately, she finds she’s been gift-wrapping
criminals specially for her favorite copper.

Four of the world’s leading criminals are lining up to form an alliance. Jax is determined to stop them.
Hot on her heels, Inspector Pedroni finds himself questioning the difference, if any,
between her justice and his. More than that, he wonders why, when he’d had her in his grasp,
he was unable to slap on the restraints and bring her in.

Available only on Amazon Kindle.

There you have it. Stay tuned for more exciting stuff as I get set to re-release the short story collection, plus additional stories that were never published.

Cheers, and I do hope you enjoy!

I Missed A Whole Year!

Wow. I did. Where the hell did 2016 go? Seriously.

I spent most of last year in a sort of weird fug. Aimless, adrift, muttering WTF many times to myself (and not in the abbreviated way). My writing, for the first half sort of fizzled and disintegrated and I sat in a daze wondering what to do next. All my contracts with the publishers had come to an end. My books were back at me and just sitting there staring at me.

It had been an goal of mine to re-edit the Lancaster Trilogy for some time, so I started tackling them in order. It consumed most of 2016. When I wasn't doing that, I went back, headfirst and with blinders on, back to my painting. I painted and painted and it kind of revived me. Focused me on what to do next.

Self-publishing, the ultimate goal.

The latter half of 2016 was me just diving in and ploughing on. Mapping out a plan, a course of action, checking off my to-do list and (amazingly) getting through. It gave me hope that 2017 was going to be the year I take flight and publish on my ownsome.

And now here we are. 2017. January is almost done and I've checked off more stuff on that list. One of them, to re-release the Jax Marlin - To Catch A Marlin novel with a shiny rebrand and teeny title change. As of this morning, I'd checked of yet another item on the list: Upload Marlin to Kindle. Check!

So there you have, folks. In a few days, my book will go live again! Stay tuned. 2017 will be a rollercoaster ride!
