Synopsis, book cover and trailer

Thought I'd release the 'Book Cover', 'Synopsis' and the 'Trailer' for my forthcoming novel, "The Ring in the Glass".

I kept the trailer short and sweet for the moment.
Oh well, back to the malaise of editing the novel.


A painting depicting the events of ‘The Temptation of the Christ’, where Satan tormented Jesus Christ in the desert, haunts a young boy—Samuel Morgan. The boy’s prior involvement in the occult: with Alan Wilson, an insane satanic scientist has transferred the Devil, and a demon Beelphegor, inside of ‘him’ with devastating consequences.

Samuel’s mother, Marilyn Morgan, a successful Pharmaceutical director demands help from psychiatrists and doctors in an effort to cure her son: who now suffers from demonic possession. Their help though is ineffective. This drives her to desperate measures. She seeks out a priest, Reverend Stephen Mason, begging him for assistance. Mason agrees, but first, he has to fight his doubts and inhibitions about God, before confronting the demon, Beelphegor: which resides in the boy.

This is not an easy tale to read. It’s a roller-coaster ride of terror—which digs deep into all our fears about the never-ending struggle between the true evil in our world, and the concept of true faith in God…that can only defeat it.

Small Excerpt

As I plod on with my never ending rewrites of my new novel…
hopefully January 2012 it will be complete. I thought I’d better post a small piece of my writing from the prologue.

The priest Mason walked forth; greying hair, skin ageing and drawn: scarred with the many traumas of a hard, bitter life. He was dressed in a long black and white gown, the uniform of an Anglican Priest—clinging to his body like a lover. His eyes flicked to different angles in the church, and he clutched a silver crucifix hanging around his neck tightly.

A large marble cross with the carving of Jesus Christ: erected as a statement to the establishment of the church—was surrounded by hundreds of candles, lit up, as if saluting a holy decree. The priest then spoke: ‘God forgive me. God forgive me.’ He wandered to the Altar where the cross of the crucified Christ stood - pounded into the stone floor of the church. The priest knelt, eyes low, and then he meditated in deep prayer. The head from Christ bowed from on top of the crucifix for a moment…this continued for some time. Before a quiet child’s voice tickled the inside of Mason’s ear.

Writing fancy words comes natural to me…dialogue and a coherent plot is where the real work begins – and that goes for any writer.

Horror Novel

The pictures are of a Jackdaw, a painting of Jesus in ‘The Temptation of Christ’. And finally, a demon called: Beelphegor.

All subject matters are highly linked to my story.

Well that’s all I’m letting on about at the present moment.

I'm using the pictures to give me the "final kick" into getting
my new Novel: 'The Ring In The Glass' finished.

Looks like it'll be October or November time before its finally completed...been a long four years.

“The Daily Show” has disappeared from my TV!

I always enjoyed watching “Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show” that played over here at 8.30pm in the UK on a channel called: “More 4”.

I just read his latest book: “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race”...very interesting.

But for some reason now “More 4” in their wisdom - don’t air “The Daily Show” anymore. So in its place now I've to endure “Celebrity Come Dine With Me", a programme about people who eat and talk about trivial rubbish and “Grand Designs”, a programme about people who build houses and talk rubbish…oh what’s the point!!!
