The first reviews are through. Six so far. All five star

Here is one of them:-

5 of 5 stars An Exceptional Read

The Owl Goddess, along with her colleagues and family, lands on a planet in a spaceship. You wouldn’t expect a classical mythological tale to start this way, but this is exactly what this is, and that’s certainly how it began.
This exciting tale looks at an age-old story from a different angle, one smartly positioned to explain how that myth came to be in an exceptionally plausible style.
I knew the myth when I started reading The Owl Goddess, now I can see how it was possible for it to be a partial fact, not just a myth.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who knows and loves mythology, adventure, and twisted reality presented in tightly written verses without any fluff.
The eBook is live on Amazon, £2.99. To get it click here: myBook.to/OG
And the paperback is now at the proper price of £11.18. I hope you like it 

Doppelganger - Re-release

This is a re-release of a story that was initially published by Melange Books. It also appeared in the following anthologies: Curious Hearts and Bedtime Shadows. So don't buy it if you've already bought those. Otherwise get it here: myBook.to/Dop

When Christine wakes up in a sumptuous white room with silken hangings, she assumes she is in heaven. But she soon finds out that this is not heaven but some strange alternative version of her life. Who is the Christine who inhabits this other world? And how is she ever to get home?

Terry Tyler’s Review of Doppelganger

I’m a big fan of Terry Tyler and therefore am particularly delighted to receive this fab review.Here is the link to Terry’s blog:

 They say there are angels who walk the Earth.”

The story is beautiful, heartbreaking, and haunting.”

“I truly believe that if you buy just one book this year, it should be this one! One of the most beautiful novels I have ever read.”

Domingo’s Angel has an overall rating of 4.8 stars on Amazon.

 The audio version is narrated by Gary Furlong, a professional actor with a beautiful reading voice. His rendition made me cry when I thought I had read the story so often it could no longer move me.

NEW RELEASE 16th December
An Open Letter to Stephen King and Other Essays

A collection of popular essays, magazine articles and blogs about life, the universe and everything.

This is my first non-fiction publication and is something of an experiment. I'm releasing it just as an e book to start with, but if it's well-received I'll also put it out as a print book.

The essays deal with Spain, women's issues, writing and just general snippets, including some autobiographical anecdotes. Well, you wanted to know about the escapology, didn’t you?
