This pretty neat The Final Version novel page has been brought my attention. It has been going a few years and contains some good observations and facts about the book by readers. I’ve copied and excerpt below.

• It is difficult to pin point when WWIII occurs, however, whatever destructive device was used left buildings standing. This leaves the remaining survivors (who have converged on a few remaining city’s world wide) have whole buildings to live in to themselves. To benefit for this arrangement occupants seemingly have to adhere to the consistent surveillance/monitoring. It echoes Blade Runner and Aeon Flux in chapters, with hints of The Thing and Mad Max in others.
• Denton visits every continent.
• Given it is set post WIII the future appears quite habitable (excluding the wastelands and industrial areas). State Side while the rain beats down there are while plastic pavements/side walks and Neon lights have made a come back.
• It’s a ‘kitchen sink’ book as it has so much in it. However, it’s pulls off bringing the sci-fi elements, (not limited to) A.I, cloning, cryogenics and Robotics together with the historic chapters and the events that are touched on subtly which include the discovery of DNA, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, Anastasia’s disappearance, Spanish Conquistadors encounters, painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio’s fate to name a few.
• Religion is outlawed and practised by underground sects. Notbaly the MJ and King sect.

It’s the fifth anniversary of Blood Hunger this year, so I thought I ‘d reflect and look to the future a little. Sometimes the way forward, is sometimes the way back. I had the privilege of meeting both Steve Crisp and Les Edwards who have produced some of the best, paintings, book cover and film concept work in the world and pick up some pointers.

Here’s a collection of the latest and some previous promotional material for the top ranking Kindles scifi The Final Version, vampire horror Blood Hunger and zombie chiller Dead Pulse. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some great models and makeup artists over the years including J. Nash and German painter C. Schreck, Welsh photographer Catrin Arwel and Juliland. IMG_0896

The Final Version novel promo

Get you hands on The Final Version or Dead Pulse today.

So that’s it for this year. Thank you all for following my blog, reading my film comments  (they are not  reviews, everyone has their own taste like women/men, wine and music) and reading my news. To-date this blog has had 49,997 hits.
Next year the 2nd Editions of my top 40 ebooks Blood Hunger (#13 unlucky for some) and Dead Pulse (#39) will be released.
It’s been a great year for my scifi The Final Version, with it reaching #12 in the Cyber Punk ebook chart.
The music video I directed (packed with scifi references, see how many you can spot) has had 3,550 views to date, be warned it gets a little bloody towards the end -check it out here:
Thank you all for following my blog, reading my books and watching my videos – I really appreciate it. Be safe, have a fantastic seasonal time and have a very merry Christmas.

In time for my favorite time of year, early I know but we’ve already put the Halloween decorations up in my home! 

The rights to both vampire thriller Blood Hunger and zombie chiller Dead Pulse have reverted back to myself. After this Halloween the novels will become unavailable.

They possibly may be resurrected in second editions depending on publishers. While the first editions satisfy, in retrospect their not as polished from an editing standpoint as I would have wished but no use crying over spilt milk. Still they’re entertaining horror travel reads. Even the industry’s big players are feeling the pinch and its difficult for the most seasoned authors to earn a crust so I’m not holding my breath for the novels to be picked up.

All is not lost in a shallow grave my sci-fi novel The Final Version is being well received. Again thank you for reading, thank you for your support and have fantastic Halloween.
