Lastnight is done - well the first draft, anyway!

I have just this minute written the final words of Lastnight, the fifth Jack Nightingale novel.

I'm exhausted but very happy because I think it's very, very good!

It came in at a whisker under 95,000 words, which is pretty much as I anticipated. I always knew the ending would work because I wrote that first, more than two months ago!

Like all books it's not completely done as it still has to be edited, but the plot is so tight I can't see there's much scope for changing things around. And yes, there's blood. A lot of blood....

Anyway, I'm off to celebrate with a few drinks. Then I have a Spider Shepherd book to write.

Three FREE Spider Shepherd SAS Short Stories

I'm offering the boxed set of three Spider Shepherd SAS short stories for free over the next three days.

The three short stories are Friendly Fire (where Shepherd is sent on a dangerous mission to a Taliban stronghold on the trail of the most wanted man in the world), Dead Drop (where Shepherd puts his life on the line to help a 12-year-old Afghan boy) and Kill Zone (where Shepherd pursues a murderous Taliban assassin).

I have another three Spider short stories ready to go - one set while he was on SAS selection and two set in Sierra Leone.  I'll publish those as soon as I've finished writing the fifth Jack Nightingale book - Lastnight.

You can get the boxed set in the UK by clicking HERE
