Manna-X FREE went well!

Yes, quite a few people took the opportunity to download Manna-X at the weekend!
I hope I can get a few reviews from them, though it usually comes around to one review per 200 downloads...not a good ratio!
AND Smashwords Freebies are still going well...

Waiting for "How to sink a ship"...

...but while I'm waiting, I'm brainstorming this one...wish me luck!

Kickstarter Project! Illustrated 'Alice on the Outside-In'!

I've started a small Kickstarter project to see if I can get enough interest in an illustrated version of my little children's story Alice on the Outside-In based on Alice in Wonderland.

29 days to go and no backing yet, but it's early days. I already have almost half of the pictures done in the style I wish, a simple, digital, strong lined cartoonish reminiscent of the original Powerpuff Girls.

But I need some funds to give the illustrator so that they will finish the work.

So, if you feel like getting a copy, or just helping me to spread the news, please come and have a look!

Anthologies are Fantastic!

If it wasn't for anthologies, Dani J Caile would have been lost in time with a few unrecognised cracked masterpieces and some collections of short stories.
But anthologies are fantastic! They're the lifeblood of many unknown writers including myself.
I have another novel coming out soon, a wait of almost 2 years, but hey, it's coming out, but before that, here's a short rundown of these fantastic anthologies.

Most Recent Anthologies
These are the ones which are up in the charts at the moment and keeping ol' Dani's Amazon Ranking up above 200k. I also edited 'Baby Shoes'.

Publisher Anthologies
These two anthologies are from my publishers, Line by Lion and Three Fates Press. 'Circuits & Steam' is only available in paperback and it's a fantastic Steampunk collection.

Other Great Anthologies
Here are some which I was able to get into, and these are also great! Unfortunately, 'One Star Reviews of the Afterlife' is out of print, but if you'd like to read the story, I can send it to you :-)

Ironology 2014-2017
There 4 titles are based on a competition which had challenges with elements, and I have tons of short stories in these. They are filled with stories from over a hundred different writers through the years, all 'Iron Writers'!

The Indie Collaboration
I have some stories in these anthologies put together by this wonderful group of writers, all trying to break into the market. These are cool.

Blue Haze - available FREE on Smashwords

Yes, 'Blue Haze' is now available for FREE on

It's been a while since I published anything, mainly because I've been waiting for my new book to come out - which, by the way, is very soon!
60k words of complete insanity about pirates, politics and zombies... "How to sink a Ship (in eight long, excruciatingly terrifying, stinkingly evil nights). Part two of the "How to" series :-) It'll have one FANTASTIC cover!
And you can help me. Yes, you can! You can become a Beta reader! (That's someone who reads the book and puts up a review once it becomes available online). Just put a comment on this post and I'll contact you about it! ...a journey always takes one first step...
