Book birthday! The Shanghai Incident has been published!

Thank you so much to everyone who made yesterday's launch a success!

The Shanghai Incident is now in shops across America. I'm very proud of this book and I hope everyone who enjoyed the first will have just as much fun with this one.

I'm hard at work on book 3 now, and very much looking forward to sharing it with you all.

Review from This Kid Reviews Books

Another fantastic early review today, this time from Erik over at This Kid Reviews Books. "This was an awesome book ... The plot is very thrilling, and keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more" It's incredibly valuable for me to get feedback from the target audience, so I've been very much looking forward to hearing Erik's thoughts and I am thrilled to receive such a positive review.

Vlog – Sanrio Puroland

20150614 02 Sorry for the gap between vlogs! I’ve had a busy week. My deadline for getting a new draft to my editor was yesterday, and I’ve also started an excellent new job. Luckily, I made the deadline, and next comes beginning the real work on the sequel! Exciting stuff! Anyway, I’ve finally been able to put together a vlog about going to Sanrio’s Puroland indoor theme park, where everything is pink, pink, pink. Not altogether my sort of thing, but it was fun to go with friends!

Announcement: Three-Book Deal

I’ve been waiting what seems like forever for the official announcement, but it’s out now!
Announcement

Some gloomy photo, haha!

Yes, I’m thrilled to let everybody know that my first novel, Master Diplexito and Mr. Scant, is going to be published in the US by Carolrhoda. This is incredibly exciting for me and I am absolutely thrilled that they wanted not only my little story, but two sequels as well. What a brilliant start to Golden Week for me! I am really looking forward to working closely with Greg to get the book as good as it possibly can be. Launch day seems a very long way off, but I feel like I’ll be in a state of constant excitement until then!
