Major Spoilers Patreon and more!


So, I’ve been away from the blog for a while.  I doubt you’ve all been waiting with baited breath for my latest missive – one has to be realistic.

I have, however, been busy, beavering away at a new novel for Candy Jar.  They’re celebrating the Brigadier with a new series of linked novels, and mine, the third, is called The Day of the Matador.  Can’t say more than that, other than the first draft is complete, has been hit over the head with the editing hammer, and is having a lie down for a week or so before I take a butcher’s knife to the structure and give it a good hiding.

As a result, I haven’t had a chance to do much in the way of other writing.  I did manage to squeeze in a submission to this anthology which was a huge amount of fun to write, and is, how can I say, disgusting!  The submission process is ongoing, so we’ll hopefully find out whether it is loved or no soon.

The other writing I’ve done has revolved around reviewing comic books for the fantastic Major Spoilers site.  Owned/managed/wrangled by the indefatigable Stephen Schleicher, Major Spoilers has been around for just over twelve years and is one of the premiere comic review/discussion/coverage sites out there.

Not only that, but Stephen manages a large network of podcasts, dealing in RPG gaming, comic book and pop culture discussion, comic book reviews, comic book creator interviews and heaps more.

Major Spoilers relies on community input and funds.  Like many other creator owned sites, Major Spoilers has a Patreon running, which covers all the costs of a very large site with an extremely extensive catalogue.  I’ve signed up at the $5 level, which gives me access to bonus tracks, behind the scenes pre-show chatter and the satisfaction I’m helping an entrepreneur keep not only his dream alive but give it the chance to grow and expand to cover more news, more reviews and more podcasts!

Dare I suggest you show your support by signing up?

You can catch all my reviews here and there will be many, many more to come over the coming months.

While the Day of the Matador percolates on my hard drive, I’ve been sketching out ideas for some new writing efforts.  I hope, more as an experiment than a grand design to rake in tonnes of filthy Amazon lucre, to self-publish a novella in the next month or two.  I’m working on the edits and will begin looking into covers etc.

Otherwise, there are two other novellas I have in the pipeline, and possibly a collection (maybe self published) of my better short horror fiction efforts from the last few years.  We shall see.
