**The robot/80s sitcom character romantic fiction idea is mine.  You heard it here first, folks.

New novel – Available now!

My new psychological thriller is now officially available!

(Cue blurb…)

Life isn’t funny anymore for stand-up comedian Nick. His support group doesn’t like him, his girlfriend doesn’t like him, and his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder definitely doesn’t like him.

Wanting to be taken seriously as an actor, Nick lands a role in a film and meets up with an incarcerated criminal in order to get into character.

Enter Gideon Matthias.

Gideon is a force of nature possessing brawn, brains, and an almost preternatural gift of perception. A man who beats a fellow inmate to death while describing the emotions they’re feeling.

Nick finds Gideon both dangerous and fascinating, and is deeply affected by his philosophy that everyone is a victim of their own minds.

As Nick contends against the invisible enemies in his mind, Gideon contends against the very much visible enemies in the jail – one of which he has crossed too many times.

The two men fight to survive in their respective arenas until Gideon decides to take action. He seeks out his new friend, and their paths cross as Gideon seeks revenge for the past.

A past that Nick wasn’t even aware of…

 

Victim Mentality is available at the introductory price of £1.99/$2.99 (ebook only, paperback to follow).

So, y’know, buy it!  Then I can afford to write the next one!

By Angelo Marcos

She limped along trying to ignore the searing pain in her shin. The blood had congealed, so she was no longer bleeding.

She used a branch as a walking stick, leaning onto it so as not to aggravate the wound.

The bucket she carried seemed to grow heavier, feeling after a time as though it were filled with boulders. She had twice felt as though her shoulder had dislocated.

The merciless sun beat down, reminding her of the thirsty children awaiting her return.

She’d walked two miles.

Two more to go.

The Artist – New cover reveal!

So I’d been toying with the idea of changing the cover for my first novel The Artist for a while now, but due to writing, stand-up comedy, bits of acting here and there, and, y’know, ‘real’ life it’s been something that had kind of fallen by the wayside.

Well, if you hadn’t guessed by the blatant title of this post, I finally got round to changing it.

I got in touch with the great people at The Cover Collection and have now got a brand new cover for The Artist.

So, without further ado, here it is!

I really wanted a simple, clean cover which hints at crime rather than beats the reader over the head with it (if you’ll excuse the pun…)

A basement cell is also pivotal to the book – this is after all where The Artist’s victims get filmed being dispatched – and I love the fact that the title sli-i-i-ghtly steps down along with the stairs.

So what do you think?  Let me know in the comments!
