'Happier Times' Has A Home

It looks like 'Happier Times', a story written by myself and lovingly brought to life by 'Art Droid Extraordinaire' himself, Mr JT Pegg, will be included in an upcoming issue of 100% Biodegradable.

Here's a sneak peak of one of the panels...

100% Biodegradable

When I bought the awesome new webcomic 100% Biodegradable, I decided then that I MUST at least try to be a part of it.

Published bi-monthly, it's edited and complied by the (extremely nice and very helpful) Dave Hailwood.  The great news is that he's accepted a script of mine named 'Atomic Control.' BOOM!

The other bit of super-fantastic news is that Hardy Lynch (brother of Mr JT Pegg - see above post) is willing to take on the artwork.  DOUBLE BOOM!

2013 - A Summary of Some Success


The year that I finally decided to do something with my assortment of rough stories, ideas and half written comic scripts.

It saw my first ever published story (back in June) and since then I've gone on to successfully publish:-

- 11 Flash Fiction stories.

- 5 Micro Fiction stories.

- 2 Comic scripts.

(See 'Published Work' for the full details.)

However, I won't bore you with the exact number of rejection letters and emails that I've had (needless to say it was a lot - my Submittable account is a wall of red!) but for my first year of trying, I'm pretty chuffed to say the least.

2014 holds more adventures for me, as it sees stories appearing in The METAVERSE Anthology, The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel, Futurequake and maybe even the publication of my first Creator Owned comic COLT-45.

I've also just started to write my first 'book', which will give the expanded story of COLT-45.

However, the project I'm most excited about is 'Next of Kin.'  This is an ongoing comic book series under development with VS Comics and featuring the incredibly talented Dan Cornwell.

Can 2014 live up to 2013?

I for one certainly hope so.

40th Birthday - 50 Word Story

A few months ago I entered a competition running at 50 Word Stories and although I didn't win, my story was recently published on their website.

I'm a bit late putting the link onto this blog as we've only just got back from Centre Parcs, which was my 40th Birthday treat!

Anyway, here it is:-
