David Wood and I had been working on a new Jake Crowley book, called SANCTUM. This is effectively Jake Crowley 0, taking place before the events in BLOOD CODEX. You can read it any time, but it’s also a great way to start the series if you haven’t yet. It’s a novella, but a fairly big one, about half the size of a full-length Crowley novel. We were planning to release it later this year, but with everything going on in the world right now, we decided to boost it up the schedule and put it out right away. So it’s out now! Here’s some details:

A quiet English village harbors a dark secret.

Trying to escape his past, veteran Jake Crowley takes a teaching position in the village of Market Scarston. But his slow rehabilitation is interrupted when a group of students are apparently attacked by Black Shuck, the legendary demon dog, and Crowley attracts the attention of a secret society dating back to the days of the Roman Empire.

See how it all began for Jake Crowley and Rose Black in this prequel novella, SANCTUM.

Here’s a page all about it with all the links you might need. If any links are dead, they’ll be updated as and when the book propagates out through the system. If you haven’t given the Jake Crowley books a go yet, this is a prime starting point. They’re a little bit different to my solo stuff, more action/adventure fare. If you do give it a go, thank you! And please pass on the details to anyone you think might like it.
