Amazon have now implemented their "matchbook" programme, which means anyone buying the paperback version of a book gets the Kindle version at a reduced price, set by the author/publisher. It seems to me if someone is paying extra for the hardcopy they shouldn't really have to pay again for the ebook, so if you shell out for... Continue Reading →

Wolf's Head has been selling incredibly well for the few months it's been out, topping the UK Kindle "War" chart, the overall "War" chart, and even breaking into the "Historical Fiction" top 20 which is...beyond words really for a debut self-published author. But I noticed the chart placings were starting to dip a little after three... Continue Reading →

About the Author
My name is Steven A. McKay and I’m a writer from Old Kilpatrick, near Glasgow in Scotland, heavily influenced by the likes of Bernard Cornwell, Doug Jackson, Anthony Riches, Robert Low et al.
My first book, Wolf’s Head, is set in medieval England and is a fast-paced, violent retelling of the Robin Hood legends. I think my take on the theme is quite different to anything that’s been done before. It is available worldwide NOW on Kindle, and paperback from Amazon.
The second book in the trilogy is coming along nicely and should – all being well – be available not too long after Wolf’s Head…
