Hurray! Happy publication day to us, @TiborJones 🥂 Our very first kids fiction book makes its way in the world today. Cover is thanks to the absolutely marvellous Thy Bui (check her out on Instagram: thycup246) And the words are very much a team effort! 📚📚📚

Bulletproof is out on Kindle and in Kindle Unlimited tomorrow. Ready for Milton’s twentieth adventure?


Project Cowshed before…

Queues for fuel? Nope. (Sorry. I know that’s a little smug…)

Just seen the cover for the second Afterschool Detective Club novel - @BenMMantle is a very talented man. Can’t wait to share it.
