Oh yes, it has been a long time in the making but it’s finally here. The short story collection which I put together and self published before Greaveburn was accepted by Inspired Quill has finally come home. IQ have graciously accepted to reprint the old warhorse of nightmaresthat is Not Before Bed. With new editing, amazing new cover and even some re-hashings and new endings for some of my old...

“But there was nothing. No village or town as far as her eyes could strain. Nowhere for her saviours to come from and take her to; just fields and trees and the weeping arc of the river Greave all the way to the horizon. Just like in the books, Greaveburn was all there was; building and building until streets were foundations, roofs were floors, constantly climbing away from itself. now that Abrasia saw it, her dream of escape crumbled completely like an ancient map in her fingers. The horizon was the world's edge and there was nothing beyond it but mist and falling.

Greaveburn stood alone on this little circle of earth, the river running around and into itself like a snake eating its tail. And Abrasia was doomed to watch the sun and stars trade places for all eternity.”
Craig Hallam, Greaveburn

Stephen King

“Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.”
Simon Pegg

Oscar Wilde

Hi Martin, thanks for getting in touch. I'm afraid that due to Createspace's policies, the book is only available on Amazon.com. The Kindle version will be available early in the new year. Im afraid that since starting work on my novel with my editor, I've gotten a little behind. I'll be sure to let you kbow when it's available.

Thanks for your support.

Craig


Martin Belcher Hi Craig, I wanted to buy your book Not before bed for Kindle, but it is not available on Amazon.co.uk? Is there anywhere else I can get it? Thanks, Martin.
