“This is a proper gothic ghost story I really enjoyed… It’s full of atmosphere and properly creepy at times.”

“Wragg captures the classic fantasy spirit of adventure and exploration, wraps it with stabbed backs and cannibals and gifts it to you on a bed of action.”
Ed McDonald, author of Blackwing
“Everyone loves a good mercenary tale, but The Black Hawks offers more besides: a protagonist who’s refreshingly rubbish at fighting, a supporting cast who’d be fascinating if they were just standing around in a supermarket, and an author who knows when to dodge clichés, and when to jump in and splash like a kid in a puddle.”
Nate Crowley, author of 100 Best Video Games (That Never Existed)
“Check out The Black Hawks - it’s full of fun characters, mercenary antics, twists, turns, and contains my favourite fantasy lemon.”
Peter Newman, Gemmell Award-winning author of The Vagrant and The Deathless
“A remarkably assured debut… I can’t wait to see what happens next.”
Anna Stephens, author of Godblind
“A an extraordinary debut that is as humorous as it is dark… Wragg has a winner on his hands here. Highly recommended.”
James Tivendale, Grimdark Magazine
“Highly recommend this book, it’s great fun and really fast.”
Robin Carter, Parmenion Books
This already-highly acclaimed book will be out on 3rd October (pre-order here).
The Waiting Rooms takes place in the very near future where an antibiotic crisis has led to widespread death and a population in peril.

- Christmas In Peppercorn Street (Peppercorn Series: Book 5) by Anna Jacobs (October 2019)
Christmas is approaching but the mood on Peppercorn Street is anything but jolly. Claire is convinced her stalker ex will catch up with her and her young daughter, and Luke is finding that living with his estranged teenage daughter brings its own problems.
When a road accident bring them together, Luke impulsively offers them shelter in his home. Will this Christmas give them the best present of all: a new family? Or will Claire’s ex again cause trouble?
- Remember Me by Amy McLellan (November 2019)
Last night my sister was murdered. The police think I killed her.
I was there. I watched the knife go in. I saw the man who did it.
And heard him laugh because he knows he’ll never get caught.
He knows I have prosopagnosia - I can’t recognise faces.
And if I don’t find the man who killed my sister, I’ll be found guilty of murder.
