Today I’m proud to help fantasy author – KB Benson spread the word about her brand new box set – Call of the Sirens. Here’s the blurb:

Lightfall on Swoon Reads

untitled-1

Stuck inside because of COVID-19? Need a distraction? Check out this brand new book by M.A. Phipps and Rebecca Jaycox. So what’s it about? Let’s take a read:

Luna has always been told she’s crazy. That’s why she’s spent the last year in a psychiatric ward for teens—until a mysterious doctor takes her away to a school in Egypt for children with special abilities. There, she’s forced to question if she’s actually insane or if there’s more to her troubled past than she thought.

Caleb is a Dark Nephilim who’s been chosen to go undercover as an exchange student at the Light Nephilim school in Alexandria. Once there, his mission is simple: find a way to free his grandfather, Alexander the Great, who was entombed after trying to take over the world.

When Luna and Caleb cross paths, they’re drawn to each other, but with eons of prejudice standing between them, can they overcome the divide between the Lights and the Darks? Or will the trail of secrets and lies they discover tear them apart?

Sounds intriguing AND for a limited time you can pick up a free copy on Swoon Reads. 

Enjoy the book and be sure to rate, review, and comment on the site.

Shades of Black – Now in Audio!

Shades of Black Audio cover

Shades of Black is a story I wrote originally for anthology that never happened. An idea conceived by Misha Burnett – Sins of Elsewhen. The concept was a series of horror tales set in alternate timeline.

I grew up in London in a outer suburb of the city, Barking, where the air was not great. I’ve had asthma since I was four-years old and probably Barking’s poor air quality contributed to it. But at least the local factories were controlled. I knew my history and knew that in 1956 Parliament passed the Clean Air Act otherwise air quality in London would have been a whole lot worse.

So, for my Sins of Elsewhen story I imagined a world where the Clean Air Act never passed due to an unscrupulous businessman called George Weeks. Read my story on ebook or listen to this wonderful new recording by the perfect narrator for the job, Londoner, Paul Winter.

Now available on Audible or if you would prefer you can pick up a review copy from Story Origin.

Shades of Black – New Release!

Shades of Black Kindle

In 1952 London experienced the Great Smog. Around 4,000 people died and 100,000 became sick. It was this that led Parliament to pass the Clean Air Act of 1956 which paved the way to cleaner air and was an important milestone in the protection of the environment. But what if the Act was never passed? What if a young and unscrupulous politician and businessman had blocked its passing? Meet George Weeks … A cautionary tale of a world that might of been.

Now in ebook (various venues) – just 99 cents.

I wrote this story originally for an anthology that didn’t happen — Sins of Elsewhen – horror stories for an alternative reality. I later tweaked the tale and added it to Sins of the Gods, but decided that with the dismal state of today’s environment that this was a good time to share my original tale with the world.

Pick up a copy today on Amazon, Kobo, or Apple (coming soon to other venues) for just 99 cents.
Or hop over to Story Origin to pick up a free review copy.

Another Cup of Tea – Now on Preorder!

41gxvpke-2bl

Four years ago I published a little book of silliness called TEA AND DARK CHOCOLATE. It was a passion project that I created for my mother, who wasn’t so fond of some of the darker themes in my fiction. She adored it.

Sadly my mum passed away at the end of 2018 so when I put together this new collection I found little pockets of poignancy sneaking in among the silliness.

In any case I hope you all enjoy it. It is now up on presale on Amazon and will be available also on all other outlets and what better day to release a humorous collection but April Fools Day.

Preorder your copy today or if you’d like a sneak peak at the book join my ARC review team over at Story Origin.  

Also in honor of the presale TEA AND DARK CHOCOLATE is currently on sale for just 99 cents.

Who likes puzzles? A few years ago at Archon, Joey and I ran a successful panel about puzzle construction. This year we’re back, but instead of learning about puzzles we’re running an interactive puzzle event, ESCAPE FROM ARCHON. It seems the Plutonians have got news that the people of Earth do not take the planet as seriously as they should, so they’re journeying to Archon to help educate the Earthlings.

Come join is in Madison C/D at the Doubletree at 4:00 pm to help save planet Earth.
