Waiting.

I like to think I’m a patient man. My wife might tell you otherwise.

Writing this book has been an exercise in patience, and I’ve learned a lot of techniques during this process that has made me less inclined to knee jerk into something else (and by god, when the time is right, I’ve some great ideas for some new series.)

The hardest part, has been this last part. Perhaps I came into it being a little naive, perhaps my experience having TV scripts edited set me up to see things differently, but I honestly thought the longest process would be the cover design, not the editing.

The cover went through a dream, thanks to Sean Strong,  but the edit has taken longer. That’s because I had no idea what a huge task fixing my mistakes would be, and also the level of detail that my editors would be working to. I’m so grateful that they are. Without the work being put in now, the book would not be anywhere near what it’s shaping up to be.

It’s really hard for me to sit on my hands and wait, so I’ve not. I’ve cracked on with book two, Shadow of Malice, and I’ll be premiering the first chapter of that at the end of The Regulators.

More importantly, we’re getting closer to nailing down a release date. I can’t wait to do that, and finally share with you all the story of The Regulators.

Until then, sit tight.

The Regulators

I’ve been a little quiet of late, because I’ve decided to take a change of course. For the time being, I want to concentrate on novels, and as such, I’ve been writing my debut novel. At the time of writing, it’s 263 pages long, and 65953 words long, and it’s not finished. Not even close.

This is very much a first draft, but I am delighted to share with you all now, a snippet from one of the earlier chapters. I will be sharing more with you in the coming weeks, prior to self publishing this online.

Again, this is just a first draft, not edited in anyway, and in all probability won’t be anything like this come the final thing, but it’s a good way to introduce the characters and the concept. I hope you enjoy.
