That Which Dwells Beneath – Now Available


My third author-published short story, That Which Dwells Beneath, is now available on Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, Nook and via direct sale.

Here’s the description:

Detective Elliot Winter believes an innocent man may hang, framed for murders he didn’t commit. He’s convinced the condemned knows too much, and even if the man escapes the hangman’s noose, powerful people want him dead.

On the grounds of the abbey at the edge of town, the catacombs conceal terrible secrets. There are whispers of murder, ritual sacrifice, and worse. Winter cannot abide a world where such crimes are allowed to go unpunished.

In a race against time, Detective Winter risks his life and sanity to unravel a conspiracy concealing something far more sinister than even he can imagine.

That Which Dwells Beneath was first published in Lovecraft eZine, December 2014 (Issue #33).

I hope you enjoy the story, and look for more soon!

Orchid Album for Mac Preview

Track your orchid collection on your Mac – Coming Soon!

Last month I announced my plans to bring my iOS and PC app, Orchid Album, to the Mac platform. Development is progressing well, so I thought I’d give you a quick look at the progress so far.

The Mac version is much the same as the PC app, with printing, enhanced search capabilities, and data transfer to and from the iOS version over WiFi. The app will be localized into all the languages supported by the iOS and PC apps, including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Orchid Album for Mac will be available for purchase directly from my website. It’ll be available for download as a free trial version, with similar limitations to the free PC version. The full feature-set can be unlocked via purchase. I’m also considering releasing the app on the Mac App Store.

At this stage I’m aiming to release the app within the next few months, barring any unforeseen development hiccups.
