I have a poetry anthology called "Finding the Light" now available on Kindle. I think it is a thought-provoking book and I hope you thinks so too.

Danny Lancaster - ex-paratrooper, private detective, optimist, hero

Henry had lunched at the restaurant several times before but it wasn't really his scene. The food was as good as a foul-mouthed celebrity chef could dream up but he preferred proper portions. And the place was a little too showbiz for his taste.
At the next table was another familiar face he couldn't put a name to, some rent-a-quote MP who fancied himself as a wit and social commentator. Tweeted about everything including his breakfast. Henry recalled the man appearing on Question Time when they couldn't find anyone better at short notice.
As he looked around again his eyes flicked to a blonde in a dress that was too short and a size too tight. Henry thought he knew the woman's face but couldn't recall whether she was the one in the soap opera or the cop show. She looked older in the flesh.
Henry recalled frequent pap pictures of her suffering wardrobe malfunctions as she fell out of some fashionable club in the early hours. These were usually followed by pictures of her looking pale and remorseful as she arrived at or left The Priory.
Henry wondered who her PR man might be. The guy was good.

Operation Neurosurgeon: You never know ... who's in the OR - here's the Indie Book of the Day 'verdict:'

"Author Barbara Ebel creatively uses medical facts by deeply embedding them into the storyline and at the same time keeping the readers hooked. Operation Neurosurgeon stars a character whose single mistake can cost him a career but everything is not over yet, or is it? Barbara Ebel has managed to keep the suspense & mystery alive, till the very end. An enjoyable read & recommended for those who prefer detailed descriptions with logical plot progression."

Outcome, A Novel: There's more than a hurricane coming ... An ~84,000 word medical/drama/general fiction novel.

Hurricane Ivan roars into the Gulf of Mexico as Karen Puno and her dog scramble to evacuate a barrier island in Florida and a teacher with liver disease is placed on an organ transplant list in Indiana. But fate is not always kind. It's not the hurricane which causes Karen's coma and subsequent organ donation. Nor is it responsible for her battered dog who escapes the crushed metal pile into the blowing sand and gusty wind.

As divergent lives and a homeless dog come together after Karen's accident, they impact each other in permanent, intense, and heartfelt ways. Perhaps fate is kind after all.

Hello everyone

Just want to say thanks to all those who picked up a free copy of SUMMER in LONDON during the two days promo. A total of fifty was down loaded!!!!!!!!! Thank you and I would appreciate a review. The book already has two 5* with the following reviews:

"This is a fascinating read. I felt like I have gone on the the journey. I would recommend this book to parents who want to develop their children's mind." frankie

"I downloaded this book a long time ago on my iphone and now I have finally finished it. I enjoyed reading it and couldn't help but laugh at some of the characters. They remind me of myself when I was growing up. They are mischievious and very smart. I can relate to the book in more than one way. I grew up out of London but I too spent my summer holidays with my friends doing all sorts but got in trouble and I was always at my friends houses or they were at mine.

Chapter 6 - The London riots, brought back memories of last years riots and it was impressive how the children helped the police. The last chapter brought tears to my eyes because it states on the copyright page that it is a true story. The books starts off slow but it grew on me and I found it interesting. The author is correct when she said the book is for any age - loved it." VICKKY

God bless

Murder In Dordogne (Robbie Cutler Diplomatic Mysteries) - the latest diplomatic mystery, set in the Dordogne region of southwestern France. Your weekend escape, to a romantic honeymoon ... interrupted by a murder or two!

"As with Mr Shepard's previous books, this book is packed full of well-researched and fascinating historical information about wartime Europe. Set in the beautiful Dordogne region of France, the book focuses on a murder mystery back in WW2 and allows the author to provide a wealth of detailed information about how French Resistance workers operated, the risks they took, the dangers they faced, the betrayals they encountered. I found this information, and the WW2 characters involved, totally absorbing."

The Kindle version at just £1.99 offers a saving of £7.00 compared to the print version. 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 - Gaspar stumbles from adversity into catastrophe. From a funeral ship to a poisonous seductress, from a goblin army laying siege to an ancient border fortress to a mischievous wood-wight, there's no end to the trouble he can get into!

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

Danny held out the Kalashnikov. Bob's eyes were wide with a curdling mixture of fear and excitement. "I've never done anything like this outside of a fairground when I was a kid," he said.
"Win anything?"
Bob shook his head. "Just a goldfish. It died two weeks later. My mum flushed it down the loo."
"Okay," said Danny. "Now concentrate. It's easy."
Bob's eyes followed the gleam of live rounds as Danny hooked the banana magazine against the lip of the receiver and snapped it home. "Like this," snapped back the cocking handle, "like this," and clicked on the safety catch, "like this."
Danny handed to rifle to Bob who braced to take the weight and looked suddenly surprised.
"It's light."
"A kid could use it, they often do. Okay, pay attention. Don't fire unless you absolutely have to. If you do, remember the key is speed and aggression."
"Speed and aggression," Bob mumbled.
"Right," said Danny. "You have a full mag and the safety is on." He leaned forward and flicked a lever. "That's single shot." He clicked again. "That's full auto."
He tapped the front and rear of the weapon. "Foresight, backsight, line those two up with your target. Makes a hell of a noise and tries to pull upwards so make sure you hold her down tight or she'll climb up off your aiming point."
Bob nodded dumbly, gripping the AK tightly, fearful of moving his hands in case he touched anything.

"Right, when you need to, click off the safety, select the fire option and squeeze the trigger."
"What happens then?"
"You spray and pray."

Here's a taster of Tainted Tree when Addie Russell, adopted American girl gets the first opportunity to read letters received my the man who left her a house in Surrey and brought her to the UK. What is Addie about to learn about the past?

It was after two o'clock before Addie settled herself in the study again and revisited the moment of the revelation of James' loss of his wife, Penny and son, David. How did he feel at that moment, she wondered. Not like me, for I always knew I'd lost my real parents. There was no sudden catastrophic pain, just a gentle sorrow - a wish that I might have known them.
On balance, she decided it was not even fair to compare James' possible emotions with her own. For had she not had the love of two good people and the happiness of a normal childhood, which could easily not have been the case.
Her emotions now were in fact not very different from those on one occasion in her childhood, when she wanted to try the fancy foods at a party Joan and Tony were having. The table was covered with dishes of all shapes and colours. There were cheeses and sausages, salads and fruit, cheesecake and other delicious foods that she had tasted and liked. But there were also foods which she had never tasted - olives, green and black, asparagus tips in butter, smoked salmon and anchovies. She asked excitedly if she could have some and was overwhelmed with disappointment when she was refused.
`Not tonight, honey,' Joan had replied. `I don't want to spoil the table. Tomorrow, I'll let you try some of the bits that are left over.
Addie went to bed excited at the prospect of trying out the unknown flavours. And Joan was as good as her word. The next morning, Sunday, she produced a plateful of the leftovers and allowed Addie to try them out. But she had forgotten to include the olives. Addie was too young to know the name and asked for the cherries. Joan produced strawberries and Addie stamped, shook her head and shouted, `No. No. Cherries. Green cherries.' Joan patiently found some grapes and presented them to the child. Addie screamed in rage and frustration, and the tantrum ended with her removal to her room and a cessation of any further discussion. It was a couple of years before she discovered the correct name, and her first taste of an olive was a great disappointment, for she had expected it to be sweet. But the bitterness of the olive was a minor disappointment compared to the banishment to her room without knowing the taste of the unknown fruit.
And for a moment, now, Addie smiled at the memory of the triumph as she held the olive in her hand, her eight year old mind thinking - now at last I shall know.
