FAQs

I get a lot of emails, and a lot of them ask the same things. Rather than have to wait for ages to get an answer from me (it’s like getting blood out of a stone sometimes) I’ve set up this page to answer the most common questions I get.

Will you blurb/critique/edit my book for me?

Sorry, no. I refuse to blurb or critique anything without reading the whole piece of work, and I just don’t have the time to do that right now. Please don’t email your work to me at this moment in time. Thanks. If the position changes in future, I’ll update this answer.

What’s happening with ISOLATION?

ISOLATION has stalled. Unfortunately, as is often the way with these labour of love projects (i.e. projects where there’s no cash involved and everyone’s working for free), they have to take second place to other contractual obligations. And there are too many contractual obligations right now… You can, however, read a novella adaptation of the original screenplay which is now available as part of LAST OF THE LIVING.

Updated: 28 September 2014

Can I get THE COST OF LIVING and ISOLATION in print?

Yes. Both novellas (and all of their associated short stories) are available in a paperback collection called LAST OF THE LIVING. Click here for more information.
