First reviews of Crank Tech One...DESTRUCTION
Here are a couple of reviews for my novel: Crank Tech One - DESTRUCTION. There are more on Amazon.co.uk.
'I really enjoyed this new book from Colin Parsons. I don't usually read science fiction, but was gripped with this story from the start. The characters are realistic and descriptions put you right at the centre of an action packed story. There are a few scarry moments, some violent and some sad, but the plot kept on moving at such a fast pace right to the final page. Great book for all from 8 to 80! I hope there is going to be another high octane adventure with Crank Tech One.'
Sarah Rees owner of 'Cover to Cover' bookshop in Mumbles Swansea UK.
'What a fab read this book is; really enjoyed from start to finish. And what is even better it caters for all ages. So, once I finished reading it I started reading it with my seven year old son, and he loves it just as much. Colin Parsons has a way of keeping the story going well and I hated putting the book down, just as he has done with all his other books; (The Wizards' Kingdom trilogy) and (The Curious World of Shelley Vendor and Katie Hinge) books. Another credit to yourself Colin 5 stars off me.'
These are what make it worth being a writer. Honest and frank reviews.

A double weekend
I'm doing two events on the same weekend in September. On Saturday 15th Sept 2012, I'll be signing my books at Waterstones Cheltenham for the very first time. Which is very exciting. Also, on Sunday 16th Sept, I will be signing copies of my books at the 'PENfro Book Festival' in West Wales. It's going to be a busy weekend, but hopfully an enjoyable one. Check out the website and where-abouts at www.penfrobookfestival.info.
A sneak preview
|This is the new book cover of Crank Tech One - DESTRUCTION, and I wanted all of my fans who have read my other series, to see it first. It will be online on Amazon, Waterstones and all good retailers sites in the next few days, for all to see. I just wanted my readers to get a sneak preview. This is my first venture into Sci-fi. I love it and I think you'll agree that it is a really magnetic cover. The artwork is by Derek Jones, it's a new venture for him too. He has done all the covers on my other books, but this is his first sci-fi project. He wanted a Marvel/DC style finish. What do you think? It's totally different to my other book jackets. Go to my contact page and let me know what you think. Enjoy.|
A new project
I've recently been working on a new idea for a new project. I can't reveal too much at the moment because, it may not take place. If it does, it will be really good for my career. I know I'm being a bit vague, at the moment, but I just want to keep my readers in the loop. If it works out, I'll definitely let you know. Watch this space!

I have read Shelly Vendor for the secound time this month, I love it!!! I can`t wait to read your other books, I want to be be a author one day like you, I think you gave me the final boost up when you came to ables writers day, it was quite a long time ago, but I will always remember it, I still have the mini story we wrote with you, Death-Trap, I think I`m going to extend it and trying put it in my own book.
I have also written a whole book, you were really the one who really inspired me to do that.
