The Books

Perfect WorldPerfect World (Book #1)

It is the year 2115 and the world is very different. With climate changes, natural disasters and war shaping the landscape, England has become a nation made up of several super cities and wasteland in between.

Eric Rawlins is a genetically engineered superhero created by the London Security Agency (L.S.A) to defend and protect the city against both national and international threats. With his superior abilities, celebrity status and beautiful girlfriend, Eric appears to have the perfect life. However, it is an illusion created by the L.S.A in order to control him.

Eric’s nemesis is the charismatic Adam Larimore. The only son of billionaire business tycoon Victor Larimore, Adam is gifted with a genius level IQ as well as the same longevity as Eric.

When the actions of the L.S.A throw the two of them together Eric finds himself questioning everything that he has ever known as well as discovering the true course of events that led to Adam turning to a life of crime. As they become closer Eric realises that the L.S.A may be the real threat to London. But can he trust Adam or is he part of Adam’s plan for revenge against those who have wronged him?


New Era

New Era (Book #2)

Eric Rawlins is a broken man. Still reeling from the L.S.A’s betrayal and then the death of his lover, Eric is struggling with his new responsibilities in north London. When a proposition from the Government heightens the stakes, Eric very quickly finds himself faced with a choice that could change the destiny of the entire country.

Eric knows that he has to step up and become the hero that those closest to him are convinced that he can be, but a deadly confrontation with the L.S.A’s new special agent leaves his belief in tatters.

Meanwhile, unknown to Eric, Adam awakens to once again find himself a pawn in Ivan Williams’ play for power.


 

AdamAdam (A companion novel to the Perfect World series)

Adam Larimore is on a mission of self-destruct. After learning that he was genetically engineered for the sole purpose of inheriting his father’s empire, Adam has been determined to ruin his father’s life and in the process his own. When Ivan Williams, the man soon to become the Head of the London Security Agency (L.S.A), approaches Adam with the offer of a business partnership, Adam discovers the appalling truth behind the technological and genetic advancements that have come to shape England. His relationship with his father is at breaking point and when events take a devastating turn, Adam finds himself pushed further than perhaps he wanted to go.

New Era and What’s Next

It’s been nearly three weeks since New Era was released and I thought I would post this quick update on the series and also what will be next from me.

First of all I would like to thank everyone who has purchased New Era or read it on Kindle Unlimited. During the run up to release Perfect World was on promotion for free and I was amazed that it got to number 1 in one of its categories! So again thanks so much to everyone who downloaded it during the promotional period and made this possible.

I haven’t stopped writing since New Era was released. The next novel I am working on is the long-awaited sequel to Demon’s Blood. I am tentatively aiming for a January 2019 release for this. Over the next few months I’ll be posting more details about the release and also the cover reveal. I’m also working on the next instalment of my Perfect World series and hope to be able to release that in the earlier half of next year too! So a lot going on behind the scenes!

I am also aware that I am quite behind on my reviews, but I am working through these every day so there will be more reviews posted in the coming months. Submissions will hopefully reopen in January, but this will be confirmed later in the year.

Thanks again to everyone for your continued support, its truly appreciated 🙂

Perfect World #2 Title Reveal

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.

Perfect World #2 Update

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 🙂
