Here is my first book Trailer: for Ordo Lupus and the Temple Gate. Let me know what you think!
Yes, they are coming; book trailer videos for some of my books.
I haven’t decided which, but probably the Ordo Lupus series, Iron series and Attack Hitler’s Bunker!

On the Eiffel Tower viewing platform, Georgina had cut a hole in the safety fence with wire-cutters – big enough to climb through. She stared into the distance with a look of defiance in her face as she shouted:
“Don’t stop me!”
An ex-M.I.6 agent is walking his daughter to school when a slit in the sky opens up and something grabs her. Her mangled body is found but the death is unexplained.
