So my second novel is coming along very nicely. I have nearly written the book after that it will then be edited and proof read.

But right now the front cover has been completed and now I will have to work on the book cover myself and when that’s done then I will put it out there for all of you to read.

Back to University today!

Today is the day I had to return to University after a good few months of relaxing and writing my next novel The Author.

I will be doing Poetry and Prose with some dramatic writing for the stage and radio in my Creative Writing course, and Sociolinguistics in my English Language part of the course… So maybe I will stop writing novels and become a poet? I certainly do not plan to, my poetry is probably as appealing as watching paint dry and as creative and poetic as the language that people on the Jeremy Kyle show utter… but we’ll see.

I may even post some of my poetry on here, to see what you think.

Been writing for hours!

Today I have been working on my next novel ‘The Author’ (COMING SOON!)

I have spent 7 hours on it today and I have only written 10 5×8 pages, (That is the size of an average novel) which isn’t really a lot but I am getting to the critical and difficult stage of the novel. It is spicing up and becoming very dark, gory and twisted now! Very exciting, can’t wait to finish it and get my second novel out there for hopefully all of you to enjoy 🙂

Just a reminder don’t forget about my debut novel Endurance which is available on Amazon for paperback and Kindle.

A note to reviewers, I am still looking for reviewers to read and review Endurance so if you are interested then please let me know. Thanks!

3 Star review on

So I see there is a 3 star review on which is really accurate, precise and really encouraging. It is the exact type of honest reviews I am looking for and 3 stars is great. 

Branded as a ‘Fresh new Dystopian idea’, and concluding with ‘All in all a decent read. Blake has a lot of potential and should continue to write to improve his skills.’ 

Thank you for this great review I will take it on board for my future releases. 

If you are interested in fast paced horror, suspense and mystery novels then Endurance is for you. Go find it on Amazon on paperback and eBook!!
