Hello ...

I’m Mark Stay.

I’ve been working in bookselling and publishing since 1994, and as a screenwriter, novelist and co-presenter. I have accrued some considerable experience in reading, analysing and critiquing other writers’ works.

I’m the author of The End of Magic, co-screenwriter of Robot Overlords, co-author of the bestselling novel Back to Reality, and co-presenter of the Bestseller Experiment podcast

I have a TV series in development with Moonriver Content that is so top secret that even mentioning the title would be a dead giveaway.

My fantasy novel The End of Magic is available now and some amazing people have said some very nice things about it…

I co-wrote ROBOT OVERLORDS with director Jon Wright for Piers Tempest’s Tempo Productions. This was selected for the 58th BFI London Film Festival, and is available now on DVD/VOD/Blu-Ray.

I also wrote the novelisation of ROBOT OVERLORDS, which is published by Gollancz and is available now.

That’s enough about me – now – how can I help you?
