Flash Gordon Rewatch – Chapter 10 – The Unseen Peril

I wish I could say I cunningly named my new novel, Glitch Mitchell and the Unseen Planet after this chapter of Flash Gordon and then timed the rewatch so that the two lined up nicely but I didn’t. Still, let’s just pretend I’m that organised and settle down to watch Chapter 10.   At the end of last week’s chapter, […]

Glitch Going Wide

Up until now my ebooks have only been available on Kindle. Amazon offers various promotional incentives for being exclusive to them (primarily the ability to easily run price promotions and inclusion in their subscription service – Kindle Unlimited), and I wanted to be able to try them out. For my next release, Glitch Mitchell and the Unseen Planet, I’ve […]
