Cool Hand audio

Cool Hand is now on audio, at Audible.

It will become available at Amazon and other retailers over the next few days – schedules entirely under Audible’s control, not mine.

I hope you enjoy the audio version of Cool Hand.


We have some scheduling problems over this summer. Julia Motyka was going to do Raw Deal before the summer, but that’s not going to happen now. Instead, she’ll go straight into recording Angel Stakes when she’s next available, which is in September. That means Angel Stakes audio should be available in November sometime.


Angel Stakes release date

Hi all


Just one more speech to re-write, one more careful read-through…


I’ll post when I have a link to Amazon.

Update – what’s next – what’s up

Angel Stakes

The re-draft of Angel Stakes has fixed almost all the problems. There are a couple of scenes that need tweaking, some general grammar, pronunciation, British-ism removal etc. I’m reasonably sure that means no more than a couple of weeks before publication.

The offer of a teaser comprising the first 3 chapters is still open, just post a comment here or email the usual contact address.

So what’s up at the moment

I’m on Goodreads answering questions about Sleight of Hand specifically and the Bite Back series in general. Any questions you have? Bring them to Goodreads, please. I’d love to see you there. I’ll be offering a new free short story to anyone who posts on these discussions.

You’ll need to be a member of Goodreads, which is free of course, join at and you’ll also need to join the Urban Fantasy discussion group at

The two discussion threads are and

I’ve already fielded questions about how Athanate bite humans without infusing them, what hobbies I have in order to come up with all the crazy stuff, and how I can write a woman’s PoV book, but I’m sure there’s lots more to come.

If you haven’t already, do please post book reviews on Goodreads or Amazon. If you have, thank you, much appreciated!

What’s next

I’m working on a short story sequel to The Biting Cold, which will probably be called Winter’s Kiss. I’m restarting work on the first book of Bian’s Tale. I’m gathering threads and events that Bite Back book 6 has to deal with.
