The Escape – out NOW on Kindle!

My short story, “The Escape” is now available as a Kindle Single, for just 99p/99c (if it’s still showing as £1.99/$2.99 then hold off for a day or so and the price will come down)*. It can be read as a stand-alone tale but for my regular readers it is best enjoyed between The Wolf and the Raven and Rise of the Wolf.

All he wanted was a quiet drink…FINAL

My final Forest Lord novella, The Abbey of Death is in the final polishing stage but is just about ready to go. It clocks in at over 30,000 words so a fair bit longer than either Knight of the Cross or Friar Tuck and the Christmas Devil. Look out for it soon, and find out how Will’s time as a Benedictine monk pans out!

Finally, don’t forget Wolf’s Head is FREE for Amazon Prime members in the USA for a time, so tell your friends about it!

* As “The Escape” is part of Amazon’s Kindle Singles program I don’t have control over the pricing the way I usually do, so it might be more expensive in places like Canada and Australia. Sorry!

New Forest Lord short stories!

Beer Booty!

I’m having a little celebration tonight because I can tell you Amazon’s exclusive Kindle Singles Programme will be publishing two of my Forest Lord short stories! (Friar Tuck and the Christmas Devil was of course in the Singles Program). First out is “The Prisoner”, a novelette which features Robin and Little John taking a rapist to Nottingham for the sheriff’s justice with, of course, a little twist. That will be out sometime this month.

The second, “The Escape” is about Little John getting into a bit of bother with (ironically!) some drunk Scotsmen and should be out early next year.
I’m also just finishing up the final Forest Lord novella which is titled “The Abbey of Death” and sees Will Scaflock as an unlikely monk. The title will give you an idea that things aren’t as peaceful as he expected when he left behind his farm in Wakefield to become a clergyman…Look out for a cover reveal soon.


Don’t forget, you can get another FREE short story, “The Rescue” by signing up for my email list.

“The Rescue” – a brand new FREE short story!

“Your brother ain’t here lass,” the man spat, stepping towards her. “And this time you are going for a swim.”
There was a snap and a shocking blur of motion as an arrow tore from the thick summer foliage behind the girl and embedded itself in the approaching man’s thigh. The missile buried itself in the muscle so hard that it knocked him off his feet and he screamed in agony as the excited dogs began barking and straining at the ropes that tethered them to the big cart.
In contrast, the great brown bear in the cage looked on in silence.
“My brother is here, lad,” Marjorie hissed, eyes moving from the fallen man to his stunned companions. “And so are his friends.”

“The Rescue” – my new FREE short story

The short story (“The Escape”) that I was giving away for free to readers subscribing to my email list is no longer available. It’s gone off to pastures new and will be republished elsewhere within the next few months along with the other, brand new, Robin/Little John short story I just finished recently (“The Stapleford Prisoner”).
It means I have nothing to offer new subscribers to my mailing list.
That sucks, right? I mean, where’s the incentive for people to join?
So I’ve written another one!
“The Rescue” is set in 1325 and follows our heroes (not Robin or John this time) as they attempt to save a friend in mortal danger…
I will send it out to current subscribers within the next few days and everyone signing up from now on will get “The Rescue” instead of “The Escape” as a freebie.
Please share with your friends, and sign up here to get your copy if you haven’t already joined my mailing list:

And don’t forget, the fourth and final Forest Lord novel, Blood of the Wolf is out on the 14th of October, pre-order available NOW for Kindle and paperback versions at the link below!
