perworldSo far behind the doors of my advent calendar, I’ve brought you free online stories, free ebooks downloads, and free audio narratives. Today I’m hoping to blow your  bloody multi-media doors off with another freebie – a link to an all-action trailer for one of my novels, Perfect World, which was created by my publishers TWB Press. 

You can watch it here.


Grizzled journalist Toby Howitt, a man who shuns violence and conflict, sets out on a mission to interview God. Sources say He’s living in the mansion at Elegant Gardens. But God isn’t the god He used to be, and Elegant harbors a few secrets of its own, secrets that thrust Howitt into the fight of his life to save the Perfect World God created.

And you can download the ebook here.

bbToday on my Halloween countdown I’ll be revisiting another horror novella published through TWB Press. The Black Book was published in 2011 and you can purchase a copy from here.

Crotchety Oliver Capstick is a book reviewer who has the power to ruin writers, which he does with callous disregard for the consequences. He works from his home, an old out-of-the-way house, lives with his cat, Milton, and holds only a tenuous connection to one other human being, the Postman who delivers the tomes he’s charged to read and review. One such tome, a black book, which Oliver tosses directly into the trash, is about to force him to review his own life with the same callous disregard for the consequences.


– Anna Stephens on The Hub Pages reviews this “excellent, creepy and downright disturbing read”. Read the full review here.

– “…an absolutely cracking read written by a truly talented writer”, says DjG, Amazon reader.

– “First things first, AJ Kirby can write. This guy can tell a story. He’s got this sneaky ability to draw you in and before you know it you’re thirty pages in and it seems like you only started reading a few minutes ago.” Craig Jones, Amazon reader

– “I really liked this wee story”, cheers N. Jackson, Amazon reader

– “I highly recommend The Black Book. You won’t be able to put it down.” Marilyn Baron, Amazon reader

hauntingToday is the second day in my Halloween countdown. I promised you special offers. I promised you promotions… Well, here’s one you just can’t miss. My publishers TWB Press are running a special ebook promo on my horror novella The Haunting of Annie Nicol over on their website here.


A grudge is a horrible thing to keep, much less pass down from generation to generation. 

Underachiever John Paul Nicol dreams of living in the big house on the hill, but his dead-end job and gambling problems make it impossible for him to afford the property, until his father dies and leaves him the estate. That’s when his dream turns into a nightmare. Seems there’s an ancestral ghost who doesn’t want anyone to live in that big house, including John Paul, so his three-year-old daughter Annie becomes a pawn in a deadly game of Burn the House Down.

SF Forward

Image4Reviewer Paul Whittle has evaluated and appraised Perfect World for the Big Bookend festival/ website. You can read his artful and insightful commentary here.

And here’s some highlights:

Perfect World is recommended for fans of adventurous science fiction and anyone interested in new novels with contemporary themes.”

“The action is continuous, the narrative entertaining, and the tone urgent throughout, and whenever the atmosphere threatens to become too oppressive, serious matters are often treated with humour.”

You can buy the book from here.

pw picCongratulations to Claire Stephenson of Leeds, who correctly answered my teaser question on the Leeds Big Bookend blog to win a copy of my novel Perfect World. We had a number of entries from Leeds and further afield, but there can be only one winner. If you entered and didn’t win, better luck next time!

The teaser question was as follows: Q: Perfect World partly takes place in a multi-user virtual world which is reminiscent of the virtual world, Second Life. In Perfect World the currency is Credits, but what currency is used in Second Life?

The answer is, of course, Linden Dollars.

Well done to the winner and I sincerely hope you enjoy the book!

And remember, Perfect World is available as a paperback and as an ebook, so if you didn’t win, you can still grab a copy before Christmas.


I’m taking a break from publicising the LVG book today. That’s because behind the door of today’s advent calendar is my guest blog regarding Perfect World, and there’s a competition to win a free copy of the book to boot… Follow this link to enter.
