Thanks to everyone who downloaded Extinction Point during my free giveaway

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 (Goodreads.com’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.

Changes to the blog

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.

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

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.
