81% discount & giveaways

 

OFFER OF THE WEEK
81% OFF
 
Hi all! Did you take advantage of the audiobook codes last week? Thank you if so - I hope you enjoy listening, I think Stephen did a great job. A few reviews in have been very positive, so doubly thanks. If you've listened, or have read the first trilogy, the follow-up trilogy is now on offer for a few days starting with an 81% discount. Just click on the image above!

Any Office Space fans here? I stumbled upon Loudermilk on Amazon, which takes Ron Livingston's office-clenched goof and adds angst and alcoholism, and makes for an enjoyable watch. That's my recommendation of the week! Take a look at the following giveaways and titles, and enjoy the rest of your week :)

Two students will compete. Only one can win...


Jada Breaker is on track to graduate from Station Alpha when her best friend is murdered in a terrorist attack. Now, all Jada wants is to stop the violence between her home and Planet Earth - and there's only one person standing in her way.

Sticks and stones do break bones, and words will surely hurt you.

Staring down the barrel of a loaded 9mm is a wake-up call, especially when it's your husband's finger on the trigger. Brooklyn James's only thought is to take her baby and run. It's better to end up on the streets than suffer one more day beneath her husband's hand.

Post-apocalypse, zombies have now been put down and the human race is rebuilding. The last exhibit of that horrible time tells her story. "I don’t know how it happened. All I have are the stories he left me with…" A tale of betrayal, recovery and life after the zombie plague.

Vampires on a murder spree. A hitman out for revenge. How hard can it be to kill the undead?

While Joe Coffin served his time in prison, someone spilled his family’s blood. But when the massive hatchet man takes out the killer, something about his vengeance feels completely off. He never expected his suspicion would reveal corpses sporting the marks of a ruthless vampire.

Get to know me a little
I live in the UK, by day working for 3dtotal Publishing in Worcester and by night weaving my worlds. A borderline introvert, though the truth is I just tend to prefer my own company! So it's a good job I enjoy writing. I believe in socialist values and support Nottingham Forest. I have a cat named Phoebe. My favourite books have been The Shining, Virgin Suicides, Middlesex, His Dark Materials, the Dark Tower series, and books by Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins. I studied Philosophy and Creative Writing at Glamorgan University, and try to incorporate moral and philosophical elements in my own writing. My next book is Neon Driver, and for this, I will be diving more into the psyche and the murky waters between right and wrong. My last book was The Risen Part 2, a first-person narrative exploring an apocalyptic Wales from the viewpoint of a not-quite human girl called Ffion. I write listening to synthwave or soundtracks like Blade Runner and Last of Us. My last gig was Arcade Fire. My top 3 movies are The Shining, Donnie Darko, and Killer Klowns from Outer Space (ha!).

Suspense recommendation & free books

 

Grab it free!
Hi all. I have an easy reading recommendation for you this week - Lullaby by Daniel Barnett. You can check out my review here! Spoiler, the sun has disappeared, and strange goings-on are a-foot, wrapped around get writing. 
 
On the personal side, it's hard to believe it's almost September. Where has the time gone? Adventures to South Wales aside, we've been tucked inside working from home, wondering where the summer sun is. I'm sure my youthful summers had blue skies. There'll be a small break in emails for a while as we move house and deal with all that excitement, and then it'll be back to the grindstone, and back to the writing.

Speak soon!

REVIEW: Lullaby by Daniel Barnett (Nightmareland Chronicles #2)

See now, how to describe this without doing my own indie community a disservice? But this nagging thought really does ring true - reading Barnett is like reading a professionally produced title; something that has been through the wringer and honed with the help of an army of agents and editors. It's easy, colloquial, the best mix of POV and stream of consciousness, spotted with action, filling rivers of long paragraphs where each is a mini-journey.

"Mariah thought of those fleeting moments out in the desert when he had almost seemed awake. The warning squeeze of his fingers on her stomach before she found the plane. The long stare after she woke from her nightmare. The name, his daughter's name, whispered longingly in the dark."

This is book 2 in the Nightmareland series, and the sun is still gone. Night reigns. John and Mariah are fleeing across the desert, (sans Gunslinger) but this is very much Mariah's chapter - her emotional journey as she struggles to get to grips with her own changing body in a world turned upside down. Her chance to find strength, both emotional and physical, instead of relying on John. It's a good decision, artistically, as it allows her character to grow and become one that shares this story, rather than being part of John's. Not that she was secondary in part 1, but this feels more.

"Which side of the aisle had they been on? Mariah wondered. And who got the window? Probably the boy, she decided. Yes, they would have given the boy the window. She could tell it was a boy because of the red sneakers and the Spiderman pajamas. She could also tell he was still breathing. She covered her mouth and moaned."

It's horror in the vein of Joe Hill, threaded with paranormal elements, in good All-American settings. With unsettling images and an unflinching narrative, the characterisation leads the way, so much so that you can almost forget the lights have been turned off. But how can the moon still be visible without a sun? This is one of the mysteries I can't wait to resolve. The biggest negative? The whole series isn't ready to go right now!
