GOAL 1: My good bud, David Barber's taken his long-awaited plunge into the eBook world with his hard-hitting collection of short stories, FROM A CROWDED MIND Vol. 1 (what a crackin' cover too!).  It includes some of Dave's best online shorts with several new ones.  I've read it and it's a beaut.  Back of the net!

Grab a copy on Amazon UK or

   GOAL 2: It's cool to see that Nick Quantrill's second novel, THE LATE GREATS, is being very well received. His first, BROKEN DREAMS, is a cracking noir look at Hull through the eyes of P.I. Joe Geraghty.  In this latest jaunt, when Geraghty goes searching for the lead singer of a reformed band, the shit hits the fan big time.  In off the bar!

GOAL 3: I got an email the other day from Maxim Jakubowski, the editor behind THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST BRITISH CRIME series.  I was was honoured to be in Volume 9 last year alongside some stellar names.  For Volume 10, Maxim would like to use my short story, FISTS OF DESTINY, from my eBook MANCHESTER 6.  To say, I'm well chuffed is an understatement. Get in! ;-)
