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, Douglas Jackson, Ben Kane et al.

My first book in the Forest Lord series, Wolf’s Head, was set in medieval England and it’s a fast-paced, violent retelling of the Robin Hood legends. It hit the number 1 spot in the UK “War” chart, reached the overall Kindle top 20 bestsellers list and is available on Kindle, audiobook and paperback from Amazon here:  http://smarturl.it/2636

As I write, in June 2017, Amazon Publishing are just about to put out the final novella in the series, The Abbey of Death. I think my take on the Robin Hood legend is quite different to anything that’s been done before – check out the reviews to see for yourself.

In total, including my two novellas, Knight of the Cross and Friar Tuck and the Christmas Devil, I’ve sold over 95,000 books in the past four years with hundreds of five star reviews for them.  As a working class man from a little village in Scotland, I’m honestly amazed at how many people enjoy my books.

Thank you all so much for reading!

AGENTS

In my first few years as an author I’ve been part of Amazon’s KDP panels at the London Book Fair and Academy event in Edinburgh, featured in Amazon’s monthly newsletters, been interviewed on local radio, and appeared in the Daily Record, Evening Times and Daily Telegraph.

As of Jun 2017 my sales are just about to hit 100,000, including audiobooks, and I’ve twice been awarded Amazon KDP’s ‘Kindle All-Stars’ payment.

I’m more than happy to continue publishing my work myself via Amazon, but if you can help me out with foreign translations or anything else, feel free to get in touch! Like any writer, I’d love an agent to push my work onto the next level.

      I’m working on the second book now, it’s roughly half finished, so I’m hoping to have it ready for about the turn of the year. Stay tuned…

    1. Thank you Chris, much appreciated! I’ve been told by a few people they thought it got better as it went on – I think it’s probably because it took me almost three years to write. I improved as a writer as I went. Hopefully, that bodes well for the next book (which is ALMOST finished)!

      Please, if you get a minute, leave a review on Amazon, it really helps. 🙂

      Thanks again for taking the time to post,
      Steven.
