The Dancing Boy

When ex-soldier Tom Gillet returned to Afghanistan to search for the boy who saved his life, little did he realise what he was about to walk into. Beyond the corridors of official power, he entered into a maze of corruption, betrayal so vast that it threatened not just his life, but everything he ever cared about.

My books are what self-publishing is supposed to be about -- something truly different than what you get from traditional publishing. Gary, the Four-Eyed Fairy and Other Stories and The Brubury Tales Try a sample.

Gaspar The Thief

Gaspar The Thief is a new humorous fantasy adventure by British author, David A. Lindsay.

There's no reviews on Amazon yet, but it's received three 4 Star reviews at Goodreads, plus it's neither a short story nor a novella - it's a full-length novel of 126,000 words. Here's the blurb:

Follow the adventures of Gaspar, a freelance thief who stubbornly refuses to swear fealty to the Thieves' Guild.

Cursed with a special affinity for calamity and mishap, and a talent for snatching defeat from the brink of victory, our hero blunders from one misfortune to the next, yet somehow always manages to survive to tell the tale.

Accompanied by his long-suffering companions - Hubris, a spellbroker who refuses to pay his dues to Wizards' Hall, and Marna, a feisty thiefess with a quick tongue and a quicker temper - our unlikely hero encounters looming retribution and imminent catastrophe at every step.

From a sinister funeral ship to a scheming seductress; from a puzzling murder to a gang of merciless ship-wreckers; and from a goblin army laying siege to an ancient border fortress to a mischievous wood-wight with a penchant for table legs and floorboards, there's no end to the troubles he can find!

Told with an appealing mixture of seriousness and humour, this is an exciting romp based in a fantasy world where anything can, and usually does, happen!

The Assassin's Wife
#16 in UK Books > Crime, Thrillers & Mystery > Political

✭✭✭✭ 4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully spellbinding!, December 7, 2011
By D. Williamson "Hooked on Kindle!" (Moncton, NB Canada) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME) Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Assassin's Wife (Kindle Edition)

The Assassin's Wife was a "sit at the edge of your seat" thriller; and I could not believe it was only 99 cents. When I start an exciting book I end up finishing it in the one sitting and this was what I did with this novel, and it was so worth it. Meg Coles was a teacher married to a wonderful husband for 10 years and never really knew who he was until his murder. What she goes through to stay alive is thrilling and unreal. Loved it!! Will be looking for a lot more of Roger Weston's books.

Whatever you preferred format, paperback or kindle
and if you are fond of complex psychological drama and vagaries of human frailty
then
HIDING THE ELEPHANT (Simon Grant Mysteries)
and its sequel
LOCK UP YOUR DAUGHTERS (Simon Grant Mysteries)
are for you.

Or, you can have them both in a single volume in Kindle format
Double Trouble (Two Simon Grant Mysteries)

Well...

Cuentos ... it has vampires and creepy stuff in it

and

Eco Station One is an easy, funny read.

Both books have earned a fair share of 4 and 5-star reviews...

I'm proud to recommend my book and here is part of my latest review (filling my heart with pride and appreciation).
THE FAT BAG stuck between a rock cake & a hard plaice
"... I just felt so good reading about the frustration in a human to human way and in plain English. Ms Barley's riveting honesty was not only inspiring; it was hilarious. Things I never dared think about my up and down weight were written in a way that made it all seem okay to say. I live this book as many of us over 50 women will admit. I doubt I'll ever take weight so seriously again. And yet, the painful comedy offers some good sense. First of all, it clearly defines addiction. The only difference between food addiction and any other addiction is, the monkey on our back is fatter".

And in my own words: This is real life humour, and many individuals will relate to the continuous journey depicting the drama in a tale that spans 25 years of yo-yo dieting - punishing and suffering for a cause and a battle that is never won.

I describe it as Bridget Jones' Diary-esque (big baggy knickers sadly appropriate) given my dry wit bordering on the ridiculous, with a spattering of sarcasm, moans, groans and self-pity thrown in, but in observational dramas that add the sometimes unexpected funny aspect to ordinary life.

"I've lost weight hundreds of times; I just can't keep it off " is a familiar cry, and I have been struggling since my teens. Now, in middle age and STILL battling the bulge, I've put these dieting diary entries together and the fat bag title is a play on words that resonates throughout the whole book, which includes chapters entitled "This Little Piggie Went to Town", "Mind Over Platter", "Not All Menus Are Created Equal" and "My Cup Runneth Over"!

Please don't be alarmed if you don't find any dieting tips or reasonable advice within the pages, but if it's an easy read and slice-of-life humour you're after, curl up in a chair with a cuppa and a plate (or packet) of biscuits and get stuck in!

Going Down by Steve Martin
This novel follows a young man's journey into the dark world of a tough young offender institution as he is sentenced to two years' imprisonment. It is a savage world in which he will either sink or swim.

For those who sink, the consequences are dire but - for those who learn to swim - the damage is far greater!

This novel will take you into a world that is seldom seen. Written by an author who spent several years in a young offenders' prison, the novel has the power of an accurately portrayed and vividly displayed world of violence, nihilism, dark humour and despair.

Burn in Starlight has just hit the "shelves", at the bargain price of only 1.32.

What's it all about? Well, it's a sci-fi, vampire, erotic, horror story set about a giant colony star-ship en-route to populate a new world and, well...

...you'll have to read it to find out what happens.

OR

If you don't fancy that one, you could give my I Be Done Seen a try which is a measly 77p

It is a short whimsical tale about the abuse of science, the last of a kind, the first of a kind, and a man's dilemma.

When the famous big game hunter O'Ryan gets a call saying his services are required in mainland UK he is intrigued.
When he learns what his quarry is to be he is astounded - this is no fox hunt!!

Hi, If you are looking for an action thriller, "Climate Control" is going to be free from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th July.

Mark Langham, whilst working for the Weather Research Section at N.A.S.A., developed a satellite-based system capable of calming the extremes of weather by influencing the earth's magnetic field. He got the idea from the changes in the weather seen when electrically charged particles from solar storms hit the field. He could not however, have foreseen the circumstances which now throw the world's weather into the turmoil "Climate Control" was created to ease. Mark must now regain control of the system....before it is too late.

It is an easy read for the beach as I've just come back from hols and three people I spoke to downloaded it and read it. They all liked it very much.

I hope you enjoy it.

Hi - try my friend's book THE ILLUMINATI KID CAN SAVE YOU - it has everything, literally, and it's a bullet of a read - life changing (and challenging) stuff . . .

The Illuminati Kid Can Save You

"The Illuminati Kid can save you.

This is the story of Warren James, the Illuminati Kid, the mighty schoolboy nemesis of the elites, and the story of the Truth. Take a paranoid sprint through the world of conspiracy and the truth of who and what we really are. Through the dark and twisted tale of Warren you'll hear about the tyranny, the conspiracy, its roots and the impact it's having on us right here and now; and about the way out, the exit, the end of suffering - ENLIGHTENMENT. It's all here (unless, of course, it's simply the fantasies, the rantings of a madman) and, according to our seemingly deranged narrator, it can save you.

"Strap in and listen damned hard or else you'll suffer and die at the hands of the psychotic, satanic and paedophilic elite . . . "

Enjoy your transformation and heightened paranoia . . . "
