It’s offical. My latest creation, Inspector Clinton Trump – detective genius – is now exploring the darkest corners of the Amazon, as he tries to solve the murder of a butler who’s been drowned in a bowl of his own mango chutney. What this means in plain English is that ‘A Very Funny Murder Mystery’ is now available to pre-order for the bargain price of £3.99 / $3.99 before it’s 29 November 2018 publication date.

To help the inspector with his enquiries, please view the book & blurb at your local Amazon store here: A Very Funny Murder Mystery We thank you for your cooperation.

30 October – New Twitter

With one eye on the 2020 US presidential election, my novel ‘We Have Lost The President’ has changed his Twitter username from @IamTheNovel to @PresidentNovel. In addition, @WeHaveLostBooks (which was, indeed, a little lost on Twitter, now its series has ended) has been taken into custody by Clinton Trump Detective Genius and been transformed into @ClintonTrumpDG – his personal Twitter from where he will issue his brilliant views on the world and berate anyone who awards him fewer than five stars on Amazon. So, make sure you’re following both accounts as they will bring news of special offers and competitions in the coming months.

26 October – Introducing…

Detective Inspector Clinton Trump: star of my new comedy murder-mystery series set in the quaint English village of Upper Goosing in Brokenshire. And he is, of course, a self-proclaimed genius! The first book in the series, ‘A Very Funny Murder Mystery’, will be available to pre-order from 1 Nov 2018, when we’ll reveal the very funny cover!

5 July – We Have Lost The … What?

No plans yet to write book six in the series (there’s another series to come before that – a murder-mystery spoof). But I’m having some fun on Facebook asking for suggestions for a title. However, as all the previous titles have ended in words beginning with ‘P’ or ‘C’, that’s the key criterion. I’ve suggested Coconuts, Pandas, Chocolate & Pumpkins. If you want to visit my Facebook author page and see this post and others, click here. So, come on – share your brilliance and let me know your ideas!


12 June – The Great Disappearing Review Trick

Hmmm. Like a literary murder-mystery, Amazon is slowly, but surely, bumping off my good reviews. Five- and four-star reviews go missing in the night … never to return. I have no idea why – all my reviews are genuine – but Amazon is very much a law unto itself. Funnily enough, it’s never the one-star reviews that meet a sticky end..!

P.S. If you’ve enjoyed my books but haven’t reviewed them, visit my author page here and you can click on the appropriate book and leave a review. Thanks!
