Well folks, The Brotherhood was released on the 20th May. I hope anyone who buys it will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I'm delighted to say I've already received quite a lot of feedback and have received a 4 star review from author Cathy Geha which is published on Library Thing.com. If anyone is interested, if you've read the book, you can review it and post the review on Amazon. All the feedback I receive helps me to understand where I am going right and where I am going wrong with my writing. It helps me to move in a direction that the readers of my books will enjoy. I'd love to hear from other bloggers and receive tips from them on how best to move forward with my blogs. I would really enjoy a personal connection with the readers of my books. I have started my third book in The Tadhg Sullivan Series and hope to have it out by the end of the year. Talk to you all again soon.

Hello everyone! It's been a while since my last blog. I am studying hard at the moment. I'm doing a third level course in Irish Culture and Heritage Studies. I am enjoying the course but at times it is a bit hectic trying to study, write and play music. I have started my third book in The Tadhg Sullivan Series. The second one The Brotherhood is available to pre order and due for release on the 20th May 2015. My family have had an opportunity to read the book and believe it to be even more exciting than the first! There are a lot of twists and turns in the story and I feel the reader really gets to know Sullivan on a much more personal level. Once again the story is affected by my own personal experiences in life and by the society that surrounds me. I tried to make the characters and the situations that they find themselves in as believable as possible and would love feedback in this regard from anyone who reads the book. Sullivan's character may be flawed, yet he is equally as heroic as a lot of the straight up, hard boiled detectives we encounter.Politics once again rears its ugly head in this novel. I find it hard to avoid as it is another big driving force in my life. I hope anyone who buys the book will enjoy it and please feel free to get back to me. Thanks everyone for their support in the past and in particular Kem, Peter, Troy and all at Tirgearr. Daithi
