Events, Reviews & Sequels

With the first year anniversary of the publication of The Boy Who Stole Time, I thought it was time to post a quick update on how things are going with The Boy Who Stole Time.

Firstly, and most importantly, I've been really pleased with the 18 great reviews on Amazon (all 4 or 5 stars) but I really need your help - if I get 50 reviews the book will appear in more searches on the site, so please, please, if you've had time to read it, do spend a minute giving the book a quick star rating and a review, even if it's just a few words:

It's also very handy on Good Reads where they seem to be a number of 2 star ratings with no reviews, so I can't tell if people are trolling me or just don't like it (it's reassuring though that there are bad reviews as well as good as it's clearly reaching enough people!) So a quick star rating / review here is also very helpful:

So, there are a few events coming up, which is very exciting.

In my hometown of Gravesend I'm doing two events on at the Gravesham Fringe Festival on 10th and 15th August:

I'll also be doing a reading as part of Forest Hill Library's Summer Reading Challenge around the weekend of 3rd August. There are a number of school events coming up in the autumn terms as well, as well as some potential events at bookshops - watch this space.

I'll also be at Talliston Writers' Circle next week (although that's not a public event, sorry!)

Finally, as a lot of people have asked, I've been working hard on the sequel (which I'm simply referring to as Myrthali Book II or TDPP) but am also writing my sitcom It's All Lies as well. More on both soon...
