Lori and I are happy you enjoyed Hostile Ground so much. (And we definitely hope we didn't make any major mistakes...) We'd originally planned to work on "Hostile Ground 2", but due to scheduling issues, the project's currently on hold. I'll let you know if/when there's any progress. (less)

There's an idea for a prequel to Return on Investment (basically, it's 100% from Francis's POV, and we see how he messed up so badly that he ended up in London.) Sequel, I don't know yet, but I'll let you know if something crystallises. :)

Re: Gold - yes. There's "Pure Gold", the sequel in the works. I'm hoping to get to that in 2017, now that I've got some pretty research-heavy books out of the way.

I spent the past months working on re-launching my backlist. That meant re-reading and re-editing something like 15-20 books after spending the whole day editing for the day job, so that was slower than I wanted. I commissioned Tif to do the whole set of covers, and I don't think I've shown them here.



The good news is, after Unhinge the Universe re-releases at the end of this month, the only bo... Read more of this blog post »

“You're my home. I will find you.”
Aleksandr Voinov, Special Forces - Soldiers

“Some men want to win a gold medal, some want a family, some want to be rich, some want to be free, some want to kill other men, and some men want to do the right thing. Me, I only want you.”
Aleksandr Voinov, Special Forces - Mercenaries Part I

“Vadim swallowed, felt his throat too tight to move, then, still staring at the bottle, smelling the desert and Dan, and himself, his hand reached to his side, opened the holster of the pistol. Took out the mag, took the bullet from the chamber, clicked the mag in place again, rolled the bullet between his fingers.

He looked at Dan, sideways, saw the man stare at him, all eyes, dark eyes, and the way the pale desert moon made his face a place of shadows.

He reached for Dan’s hand, opened the fingers and placed the bullet into the palm.

“This is the bullet you’ll use to kill me if I walk away again.” Because if I walk away again, I’ll be in so much pain I’m better off dead anyway.”
Aleksandr Voinov, Special Forces - Mercenaries Part I

Topics Mentioning This Author

“The truth is that banks are the last feudal kingdoms, their rulers omnipotent, divine warlords. Their key lieutenants are 'ronin' (wandering mercenary samurai) who roam financial markets ready to ally themselves to any warlord for a share of plunder. This is not the place to apply the latest management theory.”
Satyajit Das, Traders, Guns & Money: Knowns and Unknowns in the Dazzling World of Derivatives

“That is one thing I am sure of amid my many uncertainties regarding the literary vocation: deep inside, a writer feels that writing is the best thing that ever happened to him, or could ever happen to him, because as far as he is concerned, writing is the best possible way of life, never mind the social, political, or financial rewards of what he might achieve through it.”
Mario Vargas Llosa, Letters to a Young Novelist

“Only soldiers and labouring men can appreciate how glorious it really is to lie late in bed in winter-time. When your life revolves around having to to be at work at seven o'clock in the morning you know everything about that ghastly lep up still half asleep and the rush to put your head under a tap of ice-cold water with the barbarous object of shocking yourself awake.”
Maurice Chevalier

“It is a matter of artistic instinct. In his own thoughts and feelings and way of doing things an actor is worth nothing or he is worth something. If he is worth something then he will try to be worth something more as is only normal in anyone who wants to get on. I can think of no other way to explain artistic development.”
Maurice Chevalier

“It all boils down to instinct, good or bad. Artistic creation must be spontaneous. It comes from the heart; it has to pass through the brain; and still one needs the guts, and good old, indispensable technique, to bring it to the light of day. That, at least, is how I see the process, not that I have ever been able to pin it down very exactly in my own case. You hear a voice inside. You obey it, and produce whatever it told you to produce; and then you wait and see. And oh! The trouble you're in for.”
Maurice Chevalier
