Darkness of the Void
The Void, the strange other-space that allows interstellar travel, holds a dark secret, a truth that the Imperial Conclave dare not share. Without its mysterious power, the hope of humanity will fade, its colonies once more isolated amongst the stars. So a price is paid, a cost that holds an Empire together. 
 
A stranger holds the future of the Conclave in his hands but knows nothing of his destiny, his importance disregarded by those around him. A chance encounter with a ragged crew reveals his power, but the machinations of an ambitious Vanguard officer mean that humanity is blinded from the true threat... a threat hidden in the darkness of the Void. 
 
On a remote colony, two children are hidden from their exiled father. In an attempt to protect them, an aging priest sends them away but has scant resources to ensure their safety. On another planet, a savage is sacrificed to appease the Conclave, but in doing so a truth is revealed that will haunt those who discover it. Fates have entwined the futures of the savage and the children, but who can they trust? The drunken pilot or the naive monk; the prisoner of war or the serving soldier; the ambitious officer or the held-back investigator; the powerful robot or the exiled rebel?

The Time Watch
Bungling time travelling adventurers Jack and Joe are being hunted by the Time Watch, the self appointed guardians of time, which is precisely what they don't need whilst they are preoccupied with something as mundane as trying to save the human race. But their past (which, complicatedly, is also their future) finally catches up with them. Joe has to convince the Time Watch that meddling in the natural order of all things timey is actually a good thing, while Jack has to escape from a rather primitive form of the virtual world known as the Game. And at the same time, our heroes need to save the Earth from an alien invasion. Here are some spoilers to whet your appetite: Joe loses a shoe; Jack is snapped in two; aliens use cloaking devices for reasons that are unclear; time travelling makes your hair turn grey; the old man has a past... but will anyone reveal his real name? 
 
All this and more in.... The Time Watch!

The third part of the Jack and Joe trilogy - available now on Amazon Kindle
Clocking Out
Jack and Joe, Scunchester's third best private detectives, accidentally stole a time machine and since then business has been booming. Well, alright, perhaps not booming but they've at least been able to make ends meet. To be honest, the bottom had fallen out of the detecting business so they'd branched out as amateur archaeologists. Hired by Scunchester's premier dirt-scraper Xavier Hunt, the brothers use their time machine to get hold of the pick of historical artefacts direct from the source without having to do any of that messy digging. 
 
So when Hunt challenges them to recover the fabled sword Excalibur from the mythical King Arthur, what could go wrong? The answer: just about everything. Follow our heroes as they steal, lie and cheat their way through history. In the meantime, Alyssa's life is in grave danger, two old men really want their time machine back and a robot with a headache is having an identity crisis. It'll all make sense by book three... 
 
Clocking Out is the much delayed sequel to Craig P. Kelly's first book Time Gentlemen. He may have ignored some loose ends and imagines he'll be getting letters about this.

Available now on Amazon Kindle.
