Great to hear from you. I actually have some photographs of dad's research trip with you. I believe it was in Africa wasn't it?
Dad also researched in Belize with the Army, which is easy to say was for Long Reach.
I believe that his research with you went into this writing of "Heraklion Blue" -Now renamed "Congo Blue". This was about 40 commando Royal Marines operating in the Congo to rescue mine workers from a rebel force. The timeline fits too. The new books will be available very soon, and if you want, you'[ll be able to get hold of Congo Blue on amazon and see where the research went.
Knowing my dad as I do and his work- I would even say look out for your name. and the nicknames of the guys under your command.

I hosted your Father whilst he was carrying out research for a book back around 1997-98. He was attached to Alpha Company, 40 Commando, Royal Marines when I was the Sergeants' Major. I was wondering what became of that research and if it ever made it into one of his written works. Would you happen to be able to shed any light on this?

Gary, thanks for getting in touch. The current republication contract deal for the military quartet is in it's final design phase for the new jackets. Once this has been completed, I envisage a 12 week leadtime.
My personal email is

if you have any queries for me I would be happy to answer them in a more timely fashion than on here.
Sam- Somewhere Out There and Broken Sqaure are not under contract and as such have no publication date or plan to publish yet. We are going to gauge the success of "Project Cancelled" of which My father's 4 books are part and from there we will explore bringing out out the last two.

I was wondering if there was a rough time-frame as to when "Broken Square" and "Somewhere Out There" might be published.
I am looking forward to when they do as I currently possess all of Mike's previous books.

Can you give us an approximate publication date for the books that are under contract?

Please put me down for copies of Heraklion Blue & Broken Square. He wrote books you keep and re-read, getting more from them every time.

I am afraid not at this stage.
The aforementioned titles are being published under a new publishing initiative called "Project Cancelled" spearheaded by Roland White the bestselling author of 'Vulcan 607'and 'Phoneix Squadron'.
Dark Rose isn't concurrent with the themes of the project which is aimed at bringing back to life great and well researched military novels. It does of course leave Angel 7 & Dark Rose in the cold a bit, but my priority before those two, is to see the two unpublished books see the light of day, and I should add, the publishing of those is predicated on the success of these 4 reaching good audiences on amazon, So spread the word.

Any chance of dark rose?

You have made my day, thanks for the update!

Hello All, I apologise but it appears my messages have somehow been deleted here.
In summary, new jacket designs for
1. Let Not the Deep
3. King's Shilling
4. Heraklion Blue
are currently being designed, and the books are being prepared for re print on demand, and will be available on all commonly used E:reader tablets.
"Broken Square" and "Somewhere out there" are with the publishers and are being evaluated for potential editing and publishing sometime soon too. But the first 4 are a definite goer for now. Contracts are signed.
