Cover Reveal: Scar Tissue and Other Stories

At the beginning of May, my Patreon reached its first goal of $100 a month! That means that, as soon as I’ve finished writing the last few stories, getting them edited and getting it all formatted, all my supporters will be getting a free short story collection from me! (The rest of the world will be able to buy it a week or so later.)

Once those final three stories are completed I’ll release a Table of Contents to whet your appetite. In the meantime… TA-DAAAA! This is the cover! Designed by me, using Canva. 🙂

Scar Tissue and Other Stories will contain several stories that have appeared in print elsewhere, along with stories, poems and photo art that were written just for this collection!

Stories include Lost and Found flash fiction, stories set in the worlds of some of my novels, Holmes♥Watson fiction, Holmes+Watson epic besties fiction, and one of the few non-genre stories I’ve written, which gives the collection its title.

If you want to get a free copy of Scar Tissue and Other Stories when it comes out, and get access to other books, works in progress and other exclusive content, you can support me on Patreon for as little as US$1 a month.

Release day – Baker Street Irregulars: The Game Is Afoot

It’s finally here! The official release day of Baker Street Irregulars: The Game Is Afoot, the second volume of alternative universe stories reworking Sherlock Holmes and John Watson as everything from computer programs to mythical characters.

Some stories are fantasy, some historical, some SF, some contemporary. One or other (or both) may be alien, artificial, genderswapped or anthropomorphised.

The stories are a giddy selection of possibilities. My own story, The Problem of the Three Journals’ shifts them only slightly, to be a pair of contemporary Australian hipsters running a cafe in Melbourne and solving mysteries together.

You can see more at the publisher, Diversion Books or buy Baker Street Irregulars: The Game is Afoot at one of the following online stores.

Or add it to your Goodreads list for later!  Baker Street Irregulars: The Game is Afoot

An audio book will be along eventually, too.
