I’ve just added a Character Biographies section to the site. This contains information about Eric and Adam as well as some random facts!
Today I’m super excited to be able to share with you some more details about the upcoming second instalment in my Perfect World series.
First up, I’ve been referring to it as Book 2 for months and I can now confirm that the title will be New Era! I chose this title because ‘Operation New Era’ is referenced by Ivan Williams in Perfect World and this operation of his provides much of the foundation for the second novel in the series.
New Era takes place three months after Perfect World. Eric is still living at the Serpentines and emotionally he’s not in a good place. He is still grieving for Adam and he’s also trying to find his own path. He has support from former L.S.A colleague and close friend, Simon Matheson, and Carla Ramirez, the Serpentine’s on-site doctor, however he’s also under pressure to pick up where Adam left off. Eric wants to become a true hero, but learning the truth about the L.S.A and Government has led Eric to question what that even means in this world. Events begin to move faster than Eric is prepared for and culminate in creating a situation where he’s forced to make an impossible decision.
New Era is predominately written from Eric’s perspective, however, there are parts written from Adam’s too. The novel further explores the father-son relationship that Adam believed he had with his godfather, Ivan Williams, and also provides some additional insight into Williams’ own feelings where Adam is concerned. There is also an introduction of a key character who made his first appearance in the companion novel, Adam.
I’ve had a lot of people question why I decide to write Adam before New Era and this was because there are events in Adam that tie into it and had I written New Era first then there would be things that wouldn’t make sense.
New Era is multifaceted, as is the Perfect World series as a whole. It’s an action-packed, superhero series with the added twist of the hero falling in love with the villain. There’s also the common enemy who are the real villains of the story that both Eric and Adam have to face either reconciled together or apart. The Perfect World series also questions what it truly means to be a hero; selflessness, bravery, holding onto your morality no matter what? Or does it involve stepping into that darkness that separates you from the villains for the greater good. Do you sacrifice your own morality and soul to preserve and fight for what you believe in? New Era delves deeper into these questions, thus creating inner conflict for Eric as he is torn between being the person that he wants to be and the person that others would have him become.
I don’t yet have a release date for New Era but over the next month or so I’m hoping to be able to confirm this as well as share with you all the cover reveal and official synopsis!
For those of you who are new the Perfect World series, you can purchase Book 1 and Adam on Amazon US/UK.
I’m pleased to say that I have now completed the second book in my Perfect World series! I’m using the Christmas break to have one final read through before it goes to editing and proofing. Once I have a timescale of how long all this will take I will be able to decide on a release day. Then I can confirm the title, do the cover reveal and post the summary. It’s been a long time coming but hopefully it will be worth the wait 🙂 Thanks again so much for your continued patience 🙂
Hi everyone, as promised here’s a quick update as to where I am with Book 2 in my Perfect World series.
The second book is nearly complete and is probably a month or two away from editing and proof reading. I’m also in the process of designing the cover. It’s in its draft stages at the moment, but I’m very excited about how awesome it’s looking. It captures the theme of the second novel perfectly and I can’t wait to share it with you all. I’m still reluctant to post any release dates as I don’t want to create any disappointment if it ends up being longer than I have said, but I’m really hoping to get a date confirmed by the end of the year.
Once again thanks so much for all your patience and I promise that I’ll try to keep the wait for Book 2 as short as possible 🙂
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!
Perfect World #1 will be discounted to 99p this bank holiday weekend on amazon.co.uk. UK only promotion. Runs from Friday 28th April to Monday 1st May 2017.

I received my print proof of Adam on Friday! I’m really pleased with how it came out, so here’s a sneak preview. There are still some minor tweaks to the spine and back cover so it probably won’t be available to buy until next year.
