Well, I finally bit the proverbial bullet and decided to follow many of my writing buddies into the world of e-Publishing.  I carefully selected five of my best received stories – previously published online at various webzines – and rewrote them, leaner and tighter than before.  Then, I added one I’d been hesitant to submit due to its controversial subject matter, about terrorists hitting my home city.  After a few ‘teething problems’, MANCHESTER 6 was (re)born.

I’m quietly confident that it gives the reader good quality crime fiction, with a few added bonuses.  Thankfully, it’s gleaning many favourable reviews too!

Check out the blurb, read the reviews, or even order a copy!

Oh, ‘n’ did I mention it was part of a series?  Namely, THE MANCHESTER SERIES. Look out for THE COPS OF MANCHESTER… coming soon…

Thanks must go to Ganglion Press for providing me with a helpful platform, and also to my agent, Nat Sobel for giving me his blessing to break from the ongoing crime novel.  Nat’s not only a true gent, he’s also a legend in the industry and I’m honoured to have him representing me.

Lastly, check out the trailer for MANCHESTER 6…

Ps. Don’t forget, my regular blogging and crime fiction news can be found at…

    And a marvellous collection it is too. Even with the dodgy geezer on the front cover 🙂

    Seriously, the cover looks great. And now you’ve done it once, can’t wait for the next volume in The Manchester Series. And neither can Ganglion Press.

    That was a male model, I’ll have you know… ‘WAS’ being the operative word! 😉

    Thanks, Lil.
