My latest book, out on 1st June 2021, is Guardians at the Wall, an historical dual timeline action and adventure novel set at Hadrian's Wall.

In June 2020, Arthur Rex Brittonum, was published - the fifth and final instalment in A Light in the Dark Ages series. This is part two of my re-imagining of King Arthur, and follows on from 2019's Arthur Dux Bellorum.

Guardians at the Wall

Guardians at the Wall has now been proof-read, beta-read and copyedited, and will be finalised in early May ahead of a planned 1st June launch. It might be released earlier if ready – I’m looking at Friday 28th May as a possible early release date.
I’m in the process of arranging book blog appearances in June. I’ve decided to not go wide and just put it out as an Amazon exclusive in Kindle e-book,

Topics Mentioning This Author

Tony Flood You may like to read GUILTY WIVES which is a unique story that takes a group of fun-loving wives from the ultimate in luxury to a nightmare existence behind bars after they are accused of murder. James Patterson comes up with the worst kind of betrayal.
You may also like to check out my new crime thriller STITCH UP! - KILLER OR VICTIM? which has received glowing endorsements and reviews. The Sun newspaper's Stuart Pink says it has "a riveting plot and electrifying double twist" while author Francis Wait says it is a MUST for everyone who likes Peter James and Jeffrey Archer thrillers. Best wishes, Tony Flood, author of celebrity book My Life With The Stars - Sizzling Secrets Spilled!, fantasy adventure Secret Potion and spicy crime thriller Triple Tease.

Linda Oliver Hi Tim

Many thanks for this. It's a great offer. The weather's set to turn cold, so this weekend's an ideal time to burrow into an engaging page turner!

Hi Rebecca, nice to e-meet you too! must get on this site more often, but I am making more time to read. Can I push a pdf review copy of my first novel on you?

Tim Hi to my friends! Just a quick update to say 'thanks' to my beta readers for their feedback on the first three chapters of DEVIL GATE DAWN. I've made some changes and have now finalised it. I've also submitted it to Amazon for consideration for their Amazon Scout promotion programme for first novels, whereby readers vote by nominating books on the programme they like, and after 30 days Amazon choose the most popular and publish them! I'll let you know if I'm selected...
