Sales up again...

Two weeks after Amazon started listing the books again, sales are creeping up again - not quite at their June levels, but respectable (1000 sales in the past couple of weeks). Still really no explanation about why the books were de-listed, but once the Society of Authors intervened on my behalf, within 24 hours, four of the books were back on sale, and then the fifth was reinstated as well a few days later. I guess I'll never know what really happened.

Putting this behind me, it's time to restart work on the next series with the first book When the Children Come, which I hope to release for Xmas. An early professional reviewer pitched it as being somewhere between Birdbox and Bodysnatchers, but with more science fiction behind it, and written in a Lee Child style. Not bad...

New front cover for Eden's Revenge

Well, given the problems with Amazon over the original front cover for Eden's Revenge, the artist (John Harris), agent (Alison Eldred) and I decided to design a new front cover in any case, shown below. This third book opens on the planet Esperia, where the remnants of humanity are overseen by the Assyrians, who live in a 'pyramid-ship'. Well, a picture paints a thousand words, so, here it is (thanks John & Alison):
