My book release promo photo taken back in October 2021

Wow, has it really been one year since The Buddha’s Bone was published? How time flies! Want to celebrate with me? Well, you certainly can – by grabbing a FREE Kindle eBook copy on Amazon UK, Amazon US, Amazon CA or Amazon AU. If you read it, please do leave a review: I’d love to hear your thoughts. Remember, the freebie promo is only until 27th October, so download yours now to avoid disappointment.

In terms of my book babies, The Buddha’s Bone is my ‘middle child’, caught between my debut novel, Gods of Avalon Road and my recently released book, The Blue Man. Much like a middle child, it has had to work hard to be seen and heard; though in the past year, my second novel has fared quite well. I’ve had over a hundred sales, mostly hardcovers with eBooks a close second and the dozens of free downloads this week will hopefully bring my book to new readers too (hi new readers, hope you enjoy my book đź‘‹).

So, what’s next for The Buddha’s Bone? Well, since you’re here, I’ll let you in on the exciting news… once Book 3 of my Belfast Ghosts Series horror novels is finished, I’m going to start writing a sequel for Kimberly’s adventure in Japan. Yep, some readers have mentioned how they would like to know what she gets up to next, especially after the dark psychological journey I put her through (I don’t go easy on my main characters, do I?). I have currently outlined a synopsis for the sequel and I’ve got a working title ready, so you can look forward to more news on this in 2023.
