I always have fun writing the Jack Nightingale stories, he’s a great character and the whole demons and devils thing really fascinates me. I don’t really understand why Hodder and Stoughton didn’t want to continue with the series, Nightingale has a strong fan base and I have no problems selling the books. I guess they just couldn’t achieve the sales they wanted/expected, but it seems to me that’s a sales issue and with the right marketing and advertising campaigns they should have been able to grow sales. In a way I’m glad they didn’t continue as I have more control when I self-publish. I can now do whatever I want with the character.

New York Night is the second Jack Nightingale I’ve self-published and I’m already planning the third, which will probably be Miami Night. I’m planning on taking Nightingale to all the American cities that I enjoy visiting!
