Nick Has A Raygun

I first met Tom King the Author of a Once Crowded Sky at Annapolis Comic Con, he was just a guy setting up next to me that was selling a prose novel about Superheroes gone missing from the world.

Read & Rate this preview of my next novel – The Life, the Legends… Of an Englishman

I’m currently working on a novel that is very different to my Paranormal Action Adventure series The Tether Saga, and I want to share a preview of the first ‘roughish’ chapter of the book.

As this work is so different I want to see if I got the tone right, and would love to hear all your thoughts on this. The book when complete is going to be called The Life, the Legend… Of An Englishman, and its based roughly on my adventures that brought me to the USA. You can read and rate the preview by clicking the URL below.
