Thanks Sue W. I think you will enjoy A FACE TO DIE FOR.
I took a look at all your fav authors and your long wish list and I can't believe that we both like so many of the same authors and books! And our TBR lists are equally as long. Many of the authors I've met and know quite well through The Romantic Novelists' Association. Val Wood lives quite near me and we're good friends. I adore her novels too.
I'd love to know what you think of my books, as you are clearly such an avid reader of the romantic novel. Please also take a look at my other published Kindle book THE SECRET.
Btw, I'm sure you will enjoy Jackie's "Tainted Tree". I did, very much.
Best wishes and happy reading,
Jan

Thank you Jan, have we really got similar tastes? yes, I've read all of Val Wood books to date! I met Lesley Pearce when she lived in my home town [my name to fame hehehe] and I have a signed book I won from Freda Lightfoot that I treasure.

The Secret, yes I have that waiting to be read. Thanks Jan x

All of my stuff that I have put out myself is under £2 or under $2 (except Now Watch Him Die in the US and the hard copy stuff that isn't self-published). Now Watch Him Die is a double bill I did for FIDO Publishing with two stories in, both are speculative horror suspense. One story is about weaponised zombies, the other is about a psychic detective playing a torturous game of cat-and-mouse. The psychic detective can connect to murder scenes by touching the murder weapon, but he is trapped in a house filled with hidden medieval torture devices and execution weapons hidden in the fixtures and fittings. Every time he touches one he goes on a mind-shredding trip into the painful past. Action and plot, but also quite violent.
The Ghosts of Sector 376 more zombies in a story that asks the questions "can zombies see ghosts? can you haunt the undead?" An experimental story with no dialogue, accepted by a publisher who never paid and optioned for a graphic novel/comic book. I think this is only 77p!
The Practical if you like Victorian villainy, secret societies and anarchic anatomists in search of the next carve up this is probably your gladstone. For less than one of the Queen's pounds, guv'nor, strike a light!

Words to the Wise: Book One (The Awakening)
Words to the Wise: Book Two (Towards Darker Climes)
I have perceived tears in rain from a cloudless sky as I tread the plains of a slowly perishing world. The Earth laments; its groans infest the winds; its pleas plague dreams that slowly unravel the horrific truth of my past. Society scorns me; god reveres me, but still my reflection haunts me. Know me, for I am he who navigates the nightmares of humanity ... I am The Wanderer.

Hello everyone ;-)

ABIDING EVIL is a supernatural horror thriller, but not a gore-fest.

A sleeping menace is roused deep in the darkness of the forest.
For decades it grows, biding its time, reaching out to tug at the ordinary lives of those living beyond the shadow of the trees.
Their children begin to disappear.
Unaware and unsuspecting of the danger, a group of families, friends for many years, journey to a newly re-opened hotel. It stands alone in a clearing a mile or more within the forest boundary.
For some this will be their last reunion.

In 18 ✭✭✭✭✭ reviews (Amazon UK and US), Abiding Evil has been described as:

"AMAZING, ENTICING, WITH WONDERFUL IMAGERY"
"A SUPERB READ"
"BEST BOOK I'VE READ IN AGES"
"A TRULY TERRIFYING EVIL PRESENCE"
"I CAN'T RECOMMEND THIS BOOK HIGHLY ENOUGH"
"THE BEST HORROR I HAVE READ IN YEARS"
"AN INCREDIBLY SPOOKY READ"
"EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK WAS SPOT ON"
"SUPERB HORROR, WONDERFULLY WRITTEN"
"I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!"
"THIS NOVEL TOTALLY BLEW ME AWAY"

Enjoy ;-)

When time is short, why not read something short? Midnight and Holding, my short story collection, is a mix of humor, pathos, and serious observations in approximately 12,000 words.

Check it out and see if it suits your taste.

Rubies and Other Gems - A woman's trip back in time puts her present problems in perspective. (This is the short that inspired my novel of the same name.)

The Shed - A newly erected garden shed is the catalyst that reconnects a driven executive with his wife and children.

Harvey's New Suit - A woman buys her husband his first new suit in years.

Rainbow Years - A carefree youth calls to mind a woman's own dreams and desires.

Mad Dogs and Fishermen - A humorous account of an innocent suggestion taken to extreme.

Midnight and Holding - A parent's rite of passage.

All my works are under £2 at the moment. This includes my genealogical novel, Tainted Tree - a young American adoptee's quest to find out about her English family in Surrey and the West Country.

A Bottle of Plonk - a cheap bottle of wine gets passed from one character to another - and one situation to another - without being consumed.

Harry and other heroes - a dissertation on children's fiction - a non-fiction dissertation on children's writing through the 20th century, and a comparison with the first four Harry Potter books.

Also five short stories - you'll find details of them on my author page.

From:
DON'T LOOK DOWN
Thriller
Barbara Scott Emmett

`Hello?' A sleepy, vague and irritated voice answered at last.
`Paul? It's Lauren.'
`Uh? Who?'
`Lauren. Your sister. Lauren.'
`Oh Lauren. Oh! Lauren! What you ringing me at this time of the froggin night for?'
`I'm in a spot of bother.'
`Espotta--? Where?'
`It's not a place, Paul, it's a situation.' Lauren leaned her brow against the cold metal of the phone booth and closed her eyes.
`I thought you were in Germany visiting Katti.'
`I am. But listen. Listen. Some weird things have been happening. I was kidnapped.'
`Are you on drugs? I always suspected Katti of--'
`Paul! Shut up and listen.' Her voice was urgent but low. `It's not a joke. Katti's been kidnapped as well.'
`You're winding me up.'
`I'm not!' Tears sprang into Lauren's eyes. Why wouldn't he take her seriously? `Two men grabbed me and took me to some chalet somewhere. I don 't know where...'
She realised she didn't know where she was now, either and a wave of misery engulfed her. `Paul, it's the truth. I was kidnapped but I escaped.'
`Oh yeah, like you do.'
Lauren groaned. `This is not a joke, Paul. Please. I'm in a service station somewhere. I just wanted someone to know. In case I go missing again.'
`How will I know if you're missing again? I didn't know you were missing the first time.'
Frustrated, Lauren forced a long breath out through her clenched teeth. `I'll find out where I am and ring you back,' she said, biting back her anger. `If, after five or ten years go by, you chance to wonder why you haven't seen me for a while, this will be the last place anybody ever heard of me. Okay?'

Hi, I'm thrilled to be totting up some good reviews already for my latest novel A Face To Die For.
This romantic novel was such fun to write... mostly set in London in the swinging 1960s and into the 1970s, is all about the fashion business... and begins as young graduating art student, Annabel Spencer is about to leave art college. Told from her viewpoint, it follows her eventual rise to fame as a fashion designer... how a strikingly beautiful girl whom she meets for a brief period at college becomes pivotal to her success and how these two women's careers and love lives become uncannily and fatally entwined.
It tells an intriguing love story hampered by loose morals, drug taking and emotional conflict - at a time when anything risqué goes - and frequently does. This novel reveals the scandal and glamour of a fascinatingly decadent and revolutionary period in modern history.
Please take a look...

Shadowland

Shadowland is a story of historical fiction set in Dark Ages Britain.

`I have lived more years than I can remember, probably more than the sum of all your years combined. Kings have called me friend and brigands have sworn to burn the flesh from my bones even if they have to search all seven halls of the shadowland to find me.'

On the night of midwinter's eve, a storyteller takes his listeners back to the Dark ages and a tale from his youth.

Deserted by its Roman masters, Britain has been invaded by the Saxons at the invitation of Vortigern, traitorous leader of the Britons. Now, as the tribes unite to reclaim their land, one man must rise to lead them and become their true and only king.

Fancy a bit of 1960s nostalgia? My latest novel A FACE TO DIE FOR is now out on Amazon Kindle, and has already received some excellent reviews.
This romantic novel ... mostly set in London in the swinging 1960s and 1970s, was such fun to write. It's about a young graduating art student, Annabel Spencer (told from her viewpoint), as we follow her career and eventual rise to fame and fortune as a fashion designer. But how could Annabel have known that a beautiful girl whom she met for a brief period at college would become a famous top fashion model, and as such, would soon become pivotal to her own phenomenal success? The plot twists and turns as these two women's careers and love lives become uncannily and fatally entwined.
It tells a fascinating and sometimes shocking love story, hampered by loose morals, drug taking and resulting emotional conflict - at a time when anything risqué goes - and frequently does. This novel reveals the scandal and glamour of probably one of the most decadent and revolutionary period in modern history. Well worth a look...
Best wishes

20 Years After The Zombie Apocalypse
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
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.

Both of the above books are available together as The Zombie Apocalypse

His team have been tasked with securing a disabled military facility in a far flung uninhabited area of space.

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 ultimate alternate history"

Hi all,

Please check out The Destiny Fog, a unique speculative fiction novel.

Borne and Trieste are young lovers from radically different backgrounds, on a world shaped by mysterious entities known as the Guardians. These guides established a stable and prosperous path for humanity to follow, but are now gone, and the world faces its greatest crisis in history -- a catastrophic volcanic eruption has led to famine, disease, and war. Borne is wounded on the field of battle and struggles to survive. Trieste, torn in multiple directions, must choose between following her heart and following her sense of duty. And the leading adherents of the Guardians struggle to keep global society from collapsing entirely.

Rated 5 stars, but only £1.98 on Kindle!

Cheers
A.A.
