Since getting back from the Arctic in June I had one month of finger-blurring progress with a new novel, Oakfield, before August's no-writing regime kicked in. I've been posting chapters as I finish them on my blog. So the plan for the rest of the year is to continue writing Oakfield - aim to have that finished by end of March After that I'll be turning my focus onto the novel I started writing in May - Sunder Gloom - which kind of struck me as a an idea whilst driving back to Bristol from Bath one sunny afternoon and I thought: it would be great to have a sequel to the Bristol based horror story called Living in Flames.
It would be good to reveal the consequences of what happened at the end of that book. You can now buy all of my books from Amazon for Kindle. Click here to shop.

June I locked myself away in a remote cottage in the isolated West Pembrokeshire for a week; lighthouses, storms and writing.
May I was in the incredible island nation of Malta , one of the most incredible places on Earth - left a deep lingering impression on my brain that led to me coming back and writing a novel in 7 weeks The Black Lake - due for release August April saw me riding the Orient Express Pullman. March I relaunched the epic, plot-rich, globe-spanning campaign Shadows of the Quantinex , a vast investigation that allows characters to uncover the truth behind what caused the apocalyptic event known as Yellow Dawn and join a race against time to stop the architects of that cataclysm from doing it again.

Strong, believable characters and a storyline with the thought-provoking twist of the occult. I love this collection of short stories. There is a darkness that lingers with you afterwards, a darkness I enjoy going back to. A compact grenade of sharp tech ideas, inhuman fury, revenge, ancient bloodlines and chilling supernatural horror. My copy of Dog Eat Dog arrived today. I sat down just to flick through it; next time I looked up I was 84 pages in!
Utterly gripping, your best work yet. Without doubt David J Rodger's best to date; I've read Iron Man and God Seed and you can see a real maturity, a strong clear narrative that allows the post-apocalyptic zombie dystopia to bleed through. Some really chilling moments, some great action and a fully-realised and plausible shattered society.
I cannot wait to see more novels set in the world of Yellow Dawn! A likeable and believable central character - Even though he is clearly a genius, he only sees his inadequacies; very human! The Black Lake is your best novel to date. A solidly likeable and believable central character, an excellent portrayal of isolation and mental disintegration, and the horror elements were not clumsy or in-your-face, but fitted with the overall narrative like a glove. Genuinely scary stuff. There's some truly disturbing imagery and ideas here, executed with a deft hand.
I can't wait to put my hands on another of David's novels and same will happen to you if you give 'Edge' a well deserved chance. I have just finished reading The Black Lake and felt a compulsion to write and tell you how good it was. I think this book is fantastic and a must read.
