Today I’m very excited to share with you all the new side project that I have been working on! Never Change is a short story set in my Demon’s Blood universe. It focuses on Thane’s first winter as a vampire and how he struggles with taking human lives. Never Change will be available to purchase on Amazon Kindle from 1st December 2018! The sequel to Demon’s Blood will be published in 2019.
Thane’s arms curved around his back and he felt the younger vampire trembling as he rested his head on Taku’s shoulder. So easily broken, Taku often forgot what it had been like in the beginning. For him things had been different, he reminded himself. He had already known what it felt like to take a life.
With Nagasaki in the grip of a bitter winter, two vampires struggle to hunt in the challenging conditions. When an opportunity to feed from a dying man presents itself, Taku insists that they take advantage of it. Yet his newly turned lover is left feeling devastated by their actions. Seeing Thane so distraught is more than Taku can bear and so he makes a decision to shield Thane as much as he can from the darker side to their existence. However his desire to protect Thane might one day cost him everything.
Never Change is a short story set in the Demon’s Blood universe.
WIP: Demon’s Blood Sequel
My current work in progress is the sequel to my debut novel Demon’s Blood. Determined to save his lover from the demon Kurai’s possession, Thane returns to Japan and begins his search for Takata Koji; Taku’s sire and the only vampire who has the knowledge to save him.
Demon’s Blood was my debut novel and was originally written for the NaNoWriMo challenge.

During the last few months I’ve received many messages asking me when book 2 in my Perfect World series will be released and also the sequel to my vampire novel Demon’s Blood. As well as responding to these messages privately, I would now also like the post this update.
Firstly I would like to apologise to all my readers who are eagerly awaiting the next novels. I feel terrible that so much time has elapsed since Demon’s Blood and Adam were released. It was never my intention to leave such a long gap between publishing. There have been several events in my personal life that have significantly impacted on my writing and I have been unable to work on my novels as much as I would have liked to. Now thankfully things are on the up and I have been able to pick up both novels again.
I’m not in a position to talk about potential release dates yet but I am writing at every available opportunity and hope to be able to give some more detailed updates in the next couple of months.
Thank you all for your continued patience and support. I’ll do my very best to make sure that you’re not kept waiting too much longer!
It’s been a hectic few months since Adam’s release and until now I haven’t had time to post about what’s next from me, although there has been a lot going on behind the scenes!
First of all I want to say a massive thank you to my family, friends, fellow authors, readers, bloggers and everyone who helped with Adam’s release – I appreciate the support so much 🙂
In a few weeks you will see my website and blog merge together to form one site so all things writing, reading, reviewing and collecting are in one place! There may be a bit of email downtime at the end of July so please Tweet me or comment on Facebook if you need to get hold of me during the last few days of July.
I’m currently working on the follow up to Demon’s Blood. It’s very much in the draft stages but hopefully at some point during 2017 you’ll find out what happens to Taku, Thane and Akito!
My other work in progress is Book 2 of the Perfect World series. I haven’t got a release date for this yet but I’ll keep you all updated on it’s progress throughout the end of this year and into 2017.
I’m also going to be taking part in NaNoWriMo again this year and I’m really excited to be re-working a fantasy novel that I first drafted over ten years ago!
So that’s everything I’m working on at the moment! It may seem all quiet but behind the scenes there is so much going on and much to look forward to from me!
Demon’s Blood has an awesome new cover that I’m excited to share with you!
