Tesco Chart, Signings, and Book No.2!

It's been a while since I've last blogged, but it's been a busy few weeks!

Most recently, ORIGIN has been released in Tesco superstores nationwide, and is currently at position 23 in the Paperback Chart! Exciting stuff, and just two places behind The Lord of the Rings!

Also, my second novel has just been bought by Headline Publishing, with a potential release date of October 2013 - great news!!! I can't say much more about it at the moment, but it will be an extremely fast-paced action conspiracy thriller in the same vein as Origin. I will post more details as and when they are available!

I have also been doing various book signings around the north of England, and it's been great to get out there and meet readers. It's been a real pleasure so far, and I'm looking forward to all the others that are lined up over the next few weeks - Manchester Waterstones (8th December), Harrogate Waterstones (5th January), York Waterstones (12th January), Sheffield Meadowhall Waterstones (19th January) and Leeds Waterstones (26th January). If you can make one, I'd be delighted to meet you!

Below are a few pictures from the book tour so far:

In addition, I was also interviewed last week for BBC Radio Wales' book show, 'Phil the Shelf', with Phil Rickman. The show was broadcast on Sunday (2nd December), but is available from BBC iPlayer until 9th December. The show is about 'apocalyptic fiction' and is very interesting - my piece starts at about 4mins 40secs:

Right, now I need to get cracking on book number two!
