sanity Versus positively insane stuff & Audio.

I’ve been a bit of a hermit. I’ve struggled the past couple of months, for personal reasons I’m not ready to go into – and I’ve just tried to keep myself afloat, just enough to be a good dad and pay the bills.

It’s meant that my writing has suffered. I’ve not had the headspace or capacity to crack on with Netherdei 2 as much as I’d have liked – but as someone dear to me would say (annoyingly) ‘It is, what it is’. I hate that saying, by the way.

It’s been a huge lift for me to see that The Shadow Sect was selected by Audible as a Deal of the Day, which has seen it leap back up the charts to #3 in Audible globally and #13 in US Amazon (all genres).

I’m going to bed now and don’t expect it to climb further, but this is a wonderful, unexpected piece of insanity that is most welcome – and perfectly timed. It really is!

I’ve just seen the audio fly to being US Amazon Best-Seller for Science Fiction & Fantasy (and the sub-genres; Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Epic Fantasy) and Horror.

If that isn’t a wake-up call, I don’t know what is!

I’ve booked a writing retreat. I’d better get myself into gear for Netherdei #2!!

Huge thanks once again, to Joe Jameson, who narrated The Shadow Sect and deserves recognition for his great performance. The Ol’ Mumblecrust is still my favourite!

  1. I’m not one for zombies…but you’ve got me! I hope you’re getting that mental break you need and I look forward to listening to the next Netherdi Book!

  2. Hope things get better for you and that you find a welcome retreat in your writing rather than feeling like it’s something you just need to get done! Netherdei 1 was fantastic work, especially for an up and coming author. This is coming from someone who usually doesn’t enjoy amateur work, I’m pretty critical about most stuff I read. Don’t lose your drive! I’m rooting for you
