This year, Pocket Fiction will be host to the entire run of my novel Noctis Point. Each episode will be produced sequentially, taking me through to September. Coinciding with this, I will be releasing Noctis Point later in the year as a Kindle book. 

If you have a few minutes to spare, it'd be great if you could leave a review at the iTunes store! Every review helps! You can leave a review by viewing the podcast in iTunes itself, and clicking on Ratings and Reviews. 

Even though I'm serialising Noctis Point, Pocket Fiction is always looking for submissions! If you're an author, or you know an author, and you have a piece of fiction you would like to hear in the weekly podcast, drop me a line!

Each track is also available as a podcast through the iTunes store; on Tumblr; and on YouTube
