  1. A Long Overdue Check-In

    Posted on

    Why, hello there.

    It's certainly been a long time since we've spoken, and that's totally on me. As life continued to get in the way of this thing that I love, time has slipped past with abandon and little has been happening in the world of Andy Hill Books (third-person narrative, it doesn't sound right but 'My Books' sounds even worse!)

    Around 18 months ago, I lost all of my ongoing work in a hard drive crash... while in the process of transferring my cloud backup provider. It knocked me back and I essentially gave up for a while. However, I have recently picked up my old notes and begun the arduous process of re-writing everthing that I had previously re-written and then subsequently lost. To that end, work is continuing on the 2nd Edition of Darkness Calls, while Vengeance has had to take a back seat while I catch up.

    I have updated the approximate release times on each of the books listed on the website now, and am almost back to where I was before my data was gobbled up by some nefarious technological insect. As such, things are now moving forward once again and I hope to be able to bring you some brighter news in the very near future.

    Until then dear friends, take care. I'll see you soon, in the darkness.


  2. Welcome

    Posted on

    Hello, thank you for visiting my new website.

    After a quiet few years with plenty going on in my personal life, writing has moved itself once again towards the forefront of my 'to-do' list. I'm excited about the future and have several interesting projects in the pipeline - some of which are shown on this new site. Of course, I'll be regularly updating this blog with my progress and future ideas, not just for those of you who may be interested, but also for the sake of my own sanity; a flood of ideas can become overwhelming if not expunged on occasion!

    I felt that there was no better way to symbolise this bright future than with a website overhaul. To this end, I have moved host and redesigned the site to give it a fresher appearance and hopefully a more welcoming air. You can contact me directly through the Contact page on the site, or just head over to my social media outlets (the links appear at the bottom of each web page) and say "hi"!

    I'm looking forward to getting more of my work out into the wild, and hopefully into your hands. Commencing with the publication of a re-edited and partially rewritten second edition of Darkness: Volume One in the next couple of months, then the publication of Vengeance - my first full-length work - later in the year.

    I hope you'll join me for the journey.
