FAQs

Q. When is your next book coming out?

A. This is always changing. Few ways to keep up with it — subscribe to my newsletter, follow me on Facebook and Twitter, or check out my Current Projects page.

Q. How do I contact you? 

A. Twitter is usually best. Failing that, email me using this form — I reply to every email. Unless it goes into my spam folder, of course.

Q. I’m a publisher/magazine and I want to publish something of yours for a huge amount of money.

A. Allan Guthrie of Jenny Brown Associates is my literary agent. Contact him through their site.

Q. I’m a screenwriter/producer/director and I want to option one of your books for a huge amount of money.

A. Talk to Al.

Q. Are your books available on audio?

A. Not yet. Something on my todo list.

Q. Love your cover artist! Who is he?

A. She. My girlfriend does most of my covers. Or she tells me how to do them. If you’d like a cover, ping me an email.

Q. Who handles the ebook and print formatting for your self-published titles?

A. Me. I use Scrivener to output pretty clean Kindle files. I also use it to write my books — an awesome tool and really cheap. Takes a wee bit of getting used to but it’s really powerful. There a ton of good sites out there showing you how to use that to publish your ebooks.

Q. In what order should I read the Cullen books?

A. Ghost in the Machine, Devil in the Detail, Fire in the Blood, Dyed in the Wool, Bottleneck, Windchill and Cowboys & Indians.

Q. Will you write an eight Cullen novel?

A. Yup. I’m probably going to produce them every twelve to fifteen months or so, due to other commitments. The first three books were published eight months apart.

Q. Can I write a Cullen book on Kindle Worlds?

A. No, not yet anyway.

Q. Have any of your books been turned into film or tv?

A. Not yet.

Q. Why are your ebooks only available on Kindle?

A. A couple of reasons. I’ve got books published by Thomas & Mercer, Amazon’s publishing arm, and they don’t aggregate to competitors. For my self-published work, I tried selling on other channels, e.g. Nook/Kobo/iBooks, and nobody bought them. Amazon’s KDP gives you lots of benefits for going exclusive, and it works for me. My books are DRM-free so the files can be bought on the Kindle Store and transferred to any e-reading device using cables and stuff. Really easy, even my dad can do it.
