THE MAN WHO BROKE THE WORLD is coming April 27th!

I know it’s been a while since I last posted, but rest assured I am still alive and in command of most of my faculties. And to celebrate that fact, I’m finally releasing the fourth and final book in my Miles Franco series!

The Man Who Broke the World will be available all the usual places on April 27th (with a special new release discount, as always). Here’s the blurb:

BrokeWorldprint_polaroid_5Freelance Tunneler Miles Franco could only watch helplessly when his friend, ex-detective Vivian Reed, was banished to the space between worlds. Now he means to get her back, whatever the cost.

But he can’t do it alone. Only one woman has the skill and smarts to help Miles tear reality asunder. Trouble is, she once tried to kill him — and nearly succeeded.

Even worse, Miles’ old nemesis won’t work for free. She wants the only thing a woman like her cares about.


And if Miles wants her help, he may have to sacrifice his city to get it.


Don’t forget: if you want to be the first to know when the book is released (and ensure you get that sweet sweet new release discount, you can sign up for my mailing list here:

The Man Who Walked in Darkness has a release date!

News time! After much delay (entirely my fault), the sequel to The Man Who Crossed Worlds is nearly here. The ebook edition will be available June 21st 2013, with the paperback soon after. Woot!

The sequel, titled The Man Who Walked in Darkness, follows freelance Tunneler Miles Franco as he deals with the aftermath of the events of The Man Who Crossed Worlds. Here’s the blurb:


Miles is back for another round of hardboiled pulp action in the two-fisted sequel to The Man Who Crossed Worlds.The Man Who Walked in Darkness

Freelance Tunneler Miles Franco is having a bad time of it. He’s facing a trial that could see him spend the rest of his days in prison. Hallucinations of dead men haunt him day and night. And to top it all off, one of his bandmates has been poisoned by a toxin from another world.

Miles doesn’t take kindly to people killing his friends. Now he’ll have to walk the darkest road he’s ever been down. With corrupt corporations on one side and fanatical interdimensional gangsters on the other, he doesn’t hold out any hope he’ll come out of this alive. But he has a promise to keep.

And Miles will burn every last world to the ground if it gets him answers.

The Man Who Crossed WorldsThat’s not all. To celebrate the release of the new book, the first Miles book will soon have an all new and updated cover and paperback version. And keep an eye out for a special price on the Kindle edition of The Man Who Crossed Worlds in about a week.

And remember, if you want me to email you as soon as the book is out so you can get your grubby little hands on it, sign up for my New Release Mailing List.

Catch you all soon!

Update: The free promotion is now over! I’m still gathering data, but so far I’m very pleased with the results. If you missed out, sorry about that.  But you can still grab it from Amazon for just $3.99!

Yeah, so the title of the post says it all.

My no-holds-barred pulp/noir/crime urban fantasy novel (say that 10 times fast) The Man Who Crossed Worlds is totally free for Kindle on Amazon for the next two days (until 11:59pm on 24th January Pacific Standard Time).

If you don’t have an actual Kindle but still want to read, get yourself one of these fine Kindle apps for your iThing or other gizmo.

Go. Run. Download.

US (and anyone living in a country without a dedicated Amazon store, like New Zealand):

Update: The Man Who Crossed Worlds is currently sitting at #1 in the Fantasy > Contemporary category in the Kindle store, and #3 in Science Fiction > Adventure. Cue excitement. I’m collecting data as and when I can over the course of this promotion, so if anyone’s interested I’ll be posting the results a few days after it has ended.

Peace out, y’all.
