2024 news

My publisher, Brigids Gate Press LLC, are releasing two new titles by me this year. In May (21st), my dystopian/cyberpunk novella SIN:THETICA is set to hit the market, followed by another novella written in collaboration with fellow Brit author Beverley Lee, which is called A Light of Little Radiance and is a gothic vampire saga set for release in November.

The preorder link for SIN:THETICA is as follows: and an ARC is available on NetGalley & BookSirens for reviewers wishing to get early access on that.

More news on 'Radiance' will emerge when the publishing process is further down the line, but for now here's the early stage art for the cyberpunk title which is currently in development with illustrator Alexander Way-B.
