Tigers on the Run originally started as a novella called The Tales of Jasper Brunswick.  This was meant to be a filler release between books, to ease me back into writing on the whole.

I guess this means someone's nemesis is going to play a pretty big role in this story.

I'm a tad superstitious when it comes to announcing things - even though this has been in the works for a while and I've been dying to spill, I never feel confident to do so until the contracts are signed and the ink dry.  JUST IN CASE.

So I have some news today.  Dreamspinner Press are publishing Tigers on the Run, the third book in the Tigers and Devils universe, looking at a September release (possibly).  But that's not all, a character will be getting their own spin-off novel through DSP's YA imprint Harmony Ink.  That won't be out until next year, as it still in the works.


It's such a relief to have work coming out.  It's been a long spell between releases, and quite honestly I was suffering from a block I thought would never be released.  So to have a new book, and the next started (and to feel good about its progress) is nothing short of amazing.

Will have more details as they come, including some hints of what can be expected from the further adventures of Simon Murray and Declan Tyler!

The best three words ever spoken, until "final edits done".

One more sneak peek from the playlist - one character uses this to tease another when a night out goes horribly wrong.

I had hoped this time would come again, and it finally has.  My life is like this Coke ad from when I was a wee'un:

The drought has broken!  I am writing!

Not only am I writing, I have just hit the 67000 word mark!

And it hasn't even been two months!!!!


I am nearing the end - it is so close I can almost touch it.  So I must endure.

More information soon, hopefully.

But I'll leave you with a song from the playlist from the MS - don't worry, it's used ironically.  The playlist is so 1980s it excites me no end.  Every song is like an acid flashback to me.

I didn't even know this was ready, but the Tigerland audiobook is now live!

I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with the first audiobook.  The American accent was just wrong, but no disparagement meant to the actor.  This time around we have a guy who has one of those 'cultured' Australian/British hybrid accents - which kind of fits Simon anyway.  At least from the snippets I have heard so far.

It's strange hearing your words said out loud by someone else.  It's the first time you hear someone interpreting your tone and your characters.  It is alternately nervewracking and blindingly exciting.

So I got a little too excited and hit the 'publish' title early.  This just happens to coincide with the launch of my new look website, which was done by the lovel Ann Somerville because I am a luddite.

But here is a little Tigers and Devils short... and for the first time, from the perspective of Declan Tyler himself.

It's available in MOBI, PDF and EPUB format for absolutely nothing!  It will also soon be available on Amazon Kindle, but for the price of $0.99.

Hope you enjoy it! There may be more to come.

I was thinking of this as my new bio:

Sean Kennedy is a procrastinator, a hider, and writes far too infrequently for his own liking.
It probably comes from living in the
most isolated city in the world, but hey,
we have quokkas so it all balances out in the end.  Sean is extremely happy that
Twin Peaks
is returning to our television screens, but there will be blood if Cooper and Audrey don’t end up together.

Why do I need a new bio, you may ask?

Because things may be happening.  I don't want to jinx myself, but I've finally been writing for the first time in a very long time.  And it feels good.  It could be crap in the end, but at the moment it feels noice, diffuhrunt, uneweysyooal.

It's been half a year since I last posted, and I'm not going to make the usual excuses / promises that I always make.

I have been suffering horrendous writer's block.  But that may be changing.

And lately I've been doing some fact-checking.


No special reason?
