My genealogical novel, Tainted Tree, is under 2 for the Kindle, and has 14 reviews, 11 of them five star. Good value for 367 pages (in print format.)

Addie was pretty excited when she arrived on England's shores from Boston, USA. Her relationship with Lloyd had come to an end, and she wanted to put that behind her. Now she was eager to find out about the family she'd never known - her English mother, deceased in her twenties, just after Addie's birth and the grandparents who'd never wanted her. As for her father, well, no-one knew who he was - probably a guy like Lloyd - plenty of charm, but no loyalty. When she arrived at the house bequeathed to her in Surrey, England, Addie had no idea what she was going to find out.

Addie's research spans the 20th century and the book is set in Guildford and the West Country. Currently in the top 100 in these categories:

#89 in Kindle Store > Books > Fiction > Family Saga
#96 in Books > Fiction > Romance > Sagas
#99 in Books > Fiction > Family Sagas

Gaspar The Thief

Gaspar The Thief is a new humorous fantasy adventure by British author, David A. Lindsay. Just 1.99 for Kindle, compared to 8.99 for paperback.

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!

I'm really pleased with the latest review for Death Squad (Danny Lancaster Investigates):

Danny Lancaster, the Afghan war veteran turned private eye, is back for his second outing. Without giving too much away, Death Squad are a heavy rock band from the Seventies (a la Black Sabbath) who are being bumped off one by one by hired killers in very imaginative ways. A sexy and mysterious countess, with bi-tendencies, hires Danny to spy on one of the band members. Danny ends up witnessing a multiple killing spree and the cops put him in the frame. His only chance to prove his innocence is to outwit the police and the hit men to work out who wants the rock dinosaurs dead. Great read, as good as Danny's first case in The Wreck Of The Margherita, if not better - the body count is definitely higher this time round.

The Wreck Of The Margherita (Danny Lancaster Investigates)
"Witty, gory, sexy, educational in parts, it's a fantastic read" -The Sun

Death Squad (Danny Lancaster Investigates)
"Great stuff, with lots of bodice-ripping - by both bullet and basic instinct." -The Sun

The Zombie Apocalypse Contains both Book 1 & 2
20 Years After The Zombie Apocalypse Book 1
Harriette Madyson is the last woman alive. Twenty years ago her world came to an end when a zombie plague engulfed the population of Earth. At the tender age of seven she found herself in a nightmarish situation where the dead literally returned to life. Left with little to use and nowhere to hide Harri now finds herself stalked across the frozen desolate landscape of North America pursued by the former love of her life. All that she has to keep her going is the hope that she can make it home to die in peace.
Survival After The Zombie Apocalypse Book 2
Konnor Roland picks up from where Harriett Madyson left off in the next installment of the Zombie Apocalypse series.
In the last bastion of the old world, Konnor finds humanity's future threatened again, as the machinery of the past they have grown reliant on breaks down.
With little choice, Konnor must enter an old military underground bunker full of danger and death to repair a water purifier before mass panic ensues above ground, bringing an end to the last survivors of the Zombie Apocalypse.

Super Nova - Books 1 & 2 Both Super Nova books available as one volume!
Super Nova
Set over 100 years in the future, Commander Jack Emerick finds him self in a difficult situation.

However when they get there they find something far more sinister than a mutinous crew or terrorist activity that threatens the future survival of all mankind.
Mechanical Jihad (Super Nova) Sequel to Super Nova
Jack and Cantrell return to find themselves in troubling times. Yet again the Mechanicals are plotting against humanity only this time their plans come to fruition. This latest tale in the Super Nova series finds humanity on the brink of extinction as they fight for their very right to survive.

The media describe you as psychic; the medical profession believe you are insane!
Your parents take their own lives as they struggle to live with your strange gifts.
Do you break down; mentally crack under the strain of the horrific visions and media attention? Or do you put your bizarre gift to good use and catch those responsible for their crimes?
Ian Rivers was that child. Now he is out to catch whoever is responsible.

Extinction Theory
Sydney Trent, a mass extinction theorist unfortunately finds one of his darkest theories becoming reality as humanity faces it own possible extinction.

Writing under my humour/paranormal pen name of Melanie Dark:

A spoof. Belief in vampires not required!

Edward Jessop is a vampire with an embarrassing problem - he faints at the sight of blood.

Traditional, Victorian vampire, Edward, has fallen on hard times. Forced to leave his long-term home in a disused crypt, he is offered lodgings with Kevin - a vampire of more modern but less gentlemanly and intellectual persuasion. But this personality clash isn't the worst of Edward's problems. In the midst of these changes, he has developed an aversion to blood.

A humorous novella.

Words to the Wise: Book One (The Awakening)
Words to the Wise: Book Two (Towards Darker Climes)
I have stared into the sinful eyes of God; I have walked between worlds; I have peered into the divided depths of the human soul and have seen the dark Truth staring back. Know me, for I am death, I am despair and I am hope... I am The Wanderer.

Hi

New thriller Double Bind is just out on Kindle.

The back cover reads like this:

In Double Bind, successful writer Raymond Bridges must unravel a mystery that goes to the heart of his being and face apparently irresolvable doubts about his identity.

It's a thrilling journey that leads him to question so much of what he finds in the world around him - even the loyalty of those he knows and loves.

Best wishes

Seb

Jan,

Thanks. Here's one of the early reviews of Double Bind:

5.0 out of 5 stars

'Excellent! A must read

I finished Seb Kirby's new novel Double Bind in one sitting - I literally could not put it down. The storyline and the characters are so compelling that you're drawn in from the start. The whole doppelganger idea was so unique and unusual and Seb used it to great affect throughout the book. Put this one on your must read list if you like a good, tight, well-written thriller with a few exotic twists and turns.'

Best wishes

Seb

Great early 5*reviews, Seb, for Double Bind (Raymond Bridges #1) :-)
Promises to be another top seller for you, I'd say!

Nobody in the Woodlawn neighborhood of Birmingham, Alabama knew who Chuck Brandt really was. They thought he was a leasing agent who rented apartments to immigrants. What they didn't know was that he was a recruiter of spies and a legendary ex-assassin who was trying to start over and live honestly. But his employer, a top secret government intelligence agency knew the truth. They should have known better than to target him. They should have left him alone. The Recruiter

New Goodreads review:
A real action-packed, hold on to your seat read. Enjoyed this novel and the hero that just kept coming back for more...would recommend it to any thrill-seeker.

Only 77p on Kindle!

The Great Detectives (From Vidocq to Sam Spade) - the great detective writers and their famous sleuths, from both sides of the pond! Just whee did the name "Sherlock" come from, anyway? Many interesting details about your favorite writers, and you may discover a new favorite or two!

Here's a five star review:

"A fascinating history of detective fiction, ranging from the memoirs of Vidocq, the development of the detective story by Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Dickens, the cozies (proper British mysteries), Agatha Christie and up through the hard-boiled detectives Phillip Marlowe and Sam Spade. Reading mysteries was one of my first loves - how many of us started out with Trixie Belden or Nancy Drew - and I remember vividly reading Agatha Christie's book "And Then There Were None" (known as "Ten Little Indians" across the pond). It was very interesting to read Shepard's essays regarding the development of detective fiction and I can highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery, so they can understand from whence these wonderful tales arose."

Last Regress

Alyssa Matthews thought she had an explanation for everything. After all, as a slightly sceptical paranormal investigator that was what she was used to doing; researching, observing and explaining.

So when she began writing a paper about a long forgotten case of death by Spontaneous Human Combustion, she assumed it would be a run-of-the-mill piece. Little did she realise that she was about to be plunged into a situation that would not only force her to question her own sanity, but also her scepticism about the nature of the paranormal.

Not to mention the dreams that just wouldn't go away...

These Three Guys

These Three Guys

David is a thirty something slacker, just returned home and looking for work.
Robert is an obsessive stand up comic who needs a driver for two weeks.
It looks like the perfect double act.

At first everything is pretty fine as they tour round the country in their battered VW camper.
But out on the road they discover a secret bunker, a lake of death, squirrel memorials and a hydro-electric pixie cottage.
And David starts to wonder...

Just what are they doing, where are they going and is the joke really on him?

Hi All,

My latest book Burn in Starlight has just hit the "shelves" at a mere 1.32, and I'd welcome feedback from anyone kind enough to let me have some.

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.
