Today's the day!

Finally, THE CROSS AND THE CURSE is available from Amazon and to order in paperback form from all good bookshops.

If you have already pre-ordered the book, thank you! If not, order it now - it would be great to see it get into the Amazon charts! :-)

Once a novel is "out there", reviews are what help readers to decide to buy books so, after you have read it, please take a moment to leave a review on Amazon. It doesn't need to be much, just a few words is enough, though longer reviews are much appreciated! You don't actually need to have bought the book from Amazon (the paperback is available to order from all good bookshops), but if you have, your review will be marked as a "verified purchase".

Goodreads is also great for reviews! Most reviewers paste the same review into Amazon and Goodreads.

Hope you enjoy the book!


  1. Congratulations, Matthew! Here's hoping The Cross and the Curse does even better than The Serpent Sword.

  2. I have just begun The Cross and the Curse and am so enjoying the history of the region I live in. I read for pure entertainment and enjoyment and your books are up there with the best. Good, strong characters, good story, good writing - what more does anyone want?

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a lovely comment, Eileen. Hope you continue to enjoy the book! (And if you want to paste the above into an Amazon review later, that would be great! :-) )
