The Front Cover of “It’s…’Kind’… of Magic”

I always love this bit. Pat Currier, who put together all the Sid covers is on board for the Magical Modernity series too, and he’s finished the cover for It’s… Kind… of Magic.

I’m getting quite excited about this new project, and I’m 10K words into the sequel, Steroids and Sorcery. I’m almost certain this is going to be a four-book series. If it goes well, there’s scope to set other stories in the world (a bit like Pratchett did with the Discworld series, but without the popularity). Having said that, I’ve got some other projects on the go, and I want to write in other genres.

Anyway, here’s the cover. I hope you like it.

I didn’t hear no bell

I didn’t expect to write another blog post, but…

Life stuff got in the way for a few years: a couple of house moves and going back to school and all that. However, I did sneak another novel in, but just sat on it.

And then, a few months ago, this selling-books lark took off. Below, are the Amazon rankings for the three books over the last two years.

I went from selling next to nothing, to shifting several hundred a month. On Amazon, all three of the chronicles have been number one in comedy-horror. The Great Right Hope has also been number one in horror parodies and satires, regularly duking it out with American Psycho for top spot. It’s been top five in Dark Comedy and top ten in British horror. It’s highest Kindle rank to date has been 2512. This year, every month has seen an increase in sales. Long may it continue!

So it’s time for the next novel, first in a fantasy comedy series. I’m hoping I can piggyback on Sidney’s success. The new novel will hit the shelves at the end of the year. Details to follow, shortly.
