New Releases - December
December has been a bumper month for new releases, with
  • Wrong Number (Live-Fiction 13)
  • The Project (Live-Fiction 14)
  • The Hacker Pack - Five stories featuring the recurring hacker characters Polly and Dexter.
  • Seven Deadlies - Seven stories themed on each of the 7 Deadly Sins.

1 Million Words

During early December, with a flurry of four new releases above, I passed the milestone of having one million words for sale.


It’s a little bit of a cheat in a couple of ways – some of the words are co-written (about 50% in fact) while there is also some repackaging, where stories or books are available in different forms or bundles – about 35% of that 1,000,000 words is doubled up. All those words are available on amazon, while selected titles are also on ibooks and kobo.

On the other hand, the seven figure tally doesn’t count audio. While it’s freely available on itunes, between the Diary of the 17th Man podcast, the Live-Fiction podcast and Warm Honey and Guys Can Read on Podiobooks, there’s nearly 500,000 spoken words out there as well.

Still, it’s something to be proud of in just over 3 years of writing and self-publishing seriously.
