NEWS & EVENTS

Since Tales From The Perseus Arm went 'live' on Sept 1st, 2013, there has been a lot going on - and I like it that way. Check back here for updates on my current projects and announcements regarding new ones. 
 

Remember, I'm NEVER 'too busy' for friends, old and new, so don't  
hesitate to get in touch if there is something you'd like me to do for U2.

The Closest Thing To Crazy

2016-Aug 2017

The Closest Thing To Crazy - my Opus Magnus in that, uh, 'other genre' that I do occasionally -  was finally finished in August 2017. Those of you who have an entirely logical interest in such things will no doubt have read it by now. Everyone else is best left confused.... Quite a few people seem to think it's astonishingly brilliant. I don't disagree.

Huntingdon Writers' Group Website

Dec 2016 - now

Huntingdon Writers' Group asked me to take over as their webmaster after their old website crashed and burned so I built them a brand new all singing all dancing website at www.huntingdonwritersgroup.com  Development is ongoing!

Huntingdon Writers' Group debut.

5 July 2016

Went to Huntingdon Writers' Group's 'Bring and Read A Sample Of Your Work Night'. Due to a "mix-up" with manuscripts, I ended up reading them a somewhat raunchier excerpt from "The Closest Thing To Crazy" than I had intended ...
Not sure HWG will ever be the same! Hope they recover soon.

TalesFromThePerseusArm.com goes Live!

3 July 2014

Since Perseus began, I've been dying to build a website for it, to pull all the disparate strands together in one place and begin to build a webspace as big as the ideas that began the Perseus project in the first place. Well, that process is now under way. Small steps to start with but Rome wasn't built in a day. Watch us fly, Daedalus. We're using heat-proof glue! Check us out at  >TALESFROMTHEPERSEUSARM.COM.

It's Official!

I'm delighted to be able to say that my collaboration with SGA Publishing has now moved forward to the point where I can proudly and excitedly announce that, as of today, I am officially their "Preferred Artist". How cool is that!

Finished the artwork for the cover of C.M. Martin's Natira, Child Of The Clouds. It is expected this will be available in print format on Amazon within a week.

And now for something completely different?

October 01, 2013

A different sort of Anthology is now in the process of being compiled, for release in 2014, bringing together new works by already published authors almost all of whom will be working under pseudonyms for this project - for reasons which will soon become apparent.

I have been asked to contribute Artwork reflecting the overall theme - and permission to use a sculpture by Rune Olsen for the coverwork is being sought. This too is going to be fun!

Two new book cover commissions received.

September 30, 2013

I now have requests for two book-covers from my very dear friend Cynthia Martin.

  • Her brilliant novel 'Child of the Clouds'  - previously only available in Kindle Format - requires a concept cover to go into print for the first time, and

  • She has a new erotic fantasy novel underway and has asked me to do the art work for that too.

 

It will be an absolute pleasure as her work is a joy to read.

Tales From The Perseus Arm Vol 2/2a

Sept 08, 2013

It's official; there is too much content already submitted for Vol 2 of TFTPA. So there will be two new volumes, hot on each other's heels, next year. 

  • I will be doing the Artwork for both volumes.

  • Excitingly, I will also be submitting a short story to the Anthology within that same time-frame.

Clan Leader published.

February 18 2014

Delighted to collaborate with AMOK PUBLICATIONS for the first time and create the cover for Jack Byrne's second novel. It's a really steamy m/m vampire love story that makes Twilight look like kiddies' TV. Read it!      
                                                                                                                                                  BUY
