Extinction Point is FREE today and Saturday (last chance)

20 Jul

This is the last chance for you to grab a free copy of Extinction Point from Amazon. I’ll most likely be stepping out of the KDP Select program in the coming month to publish on a couple of other platforms (Kobo and B&N). So, if you know anyone who you think would like a free copy, send them on over to their local Amazon site this weekend.


Also, if you guys get a chance, stop by , the site’s owner and moderator, Michael, has been incredibly helpful with helping me get word of Extinction Point out …

Have a great weekend all.

Paperback edition of Extinction Point now available!

28 Jun


It’s been a long time coming, but finally a paperback edition of Extinction Point is now available. I received the proofs of the book today and I have to say I’m really very happy with the quality.

Extinction Point Paperback


It’s currently only available through Createspace for $8.99 (It’ll be available through Amazon sometime in the next 4 to 5 days). Here’s the Createspace link


Competition Announcement: How would you like to join Emily and Thor on their next journey?

12 Jun


I’m running a competition with Apocalypse Whenever,’s largest and most active group dedicated to the post-apocalypse genre. First Prize is a copy of the sequel to Extinction Point when I publish it later this summer… oh, yeah, and YOU could be in it.

That’s right — whoever wins this competition is going to be written into the sequel as a character and gain instant fame, fortune and immortality (okay, I may be exaggerating that last part a smidgen).

So, if you’re interested in helping Emily and Thor, head over to Apocalypse Whenever and join the fun. Here’s a direct link to the post APOCALYPSE WHENEVER

If you’re not already a member of Goodreads you will have to join; it’s totally free and well worth it.

Good luck and I look forward to you meeting Emily.


Thanks to everyone who downloaded Extinction Point during my free giveaway

11 Jun

This weekend’s free download event over at Amazon was a fantastic success and I’d like to take a minute to say thank you to the almost 13,000 people worldwide who took advantage of the giveaway and downloaded Extinction Point for free. To those who have left reviews after reading the book, I say an even bigger THANK YOU, it is very much appreciated and I love to hear your thoughts. Every review goes a long way to making my books more visible to other authors.

Book two in the series, Exodus, is well on its way and should be released around the end of July or mid-August. So, not too long to wait for the next installment. Exodus will be around the same length as book one (approximately 85,000 words) but I plan on doubling-up the length for the final book in the series, which should be released (conveniently, ahem!)  around Christmas.

Also, make sure you check back over the next couple of days for an announcement of a competition I’ll be running in conjunction with Apocalypse Whenever (’s leading group for post-apocalypse books and stories) … I think you’ll find the prize a lot of fun and very original.

Thanks again.

As you can see (hopefully) I have the mailing list subscription form back up and running over on the sidebar. If you have any problems signing up, just drop me a line at and I can add you manually.


Changes to the blog

03 Jun

Hi all. As you can probably see, I’m making a few changes to the blog to make it a little more user friendly. I’ve hit a snag with the email subscription form so, for the meantime, if you are interested in subscribing to my email list for future book releases, please use the link on the left side of this page.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience. Normal service will be resumed as soon as I figure out what the hell I am doing.

Meet Wolf, the inspiration for Thor

21 May

This is Wolf (A.K.A. The Dude). He’s the inspiration for Emily’s companion Thor in Extinction Point.



This is him 15 minutes and a Ferminator later …




And that was just one side of him!

Black Flagged Redux

11 May

Does the name Steven Konkoly ring a bell with you? Sound kind of familiar maybe? If you’ve read Extinction Point you may remember Emily’s editor was named Sven Konkoly, a nod to my friend and fellow author Steve. He’s just released his third book, Black Flagged Redux, a follow up to his hit thriller Black Flagged. This weekend he’s matching every sale with a $2 donation of his own. Proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. So, if you’re looking for a good thriller and you’d like to help out our nation’s veterans why not pick up a copy.
