A FACE TO DIE FOR my latest fully edited novel is on many levels pure nostalgia... set in a fashion business background in the swinging 1960s... and tells an intriguing love story, hampered by loose morals, drug taking and romantic conflict - at a time when anything risque goes, and frequently does. This novel reveals the typical scandal and glamour of this decadent and revolutionary period in modern history.
A gripping storyline, not to be missed.

Best wishes

Tomorrow Blossoms

When Kate's husband, Ward, locates the son she put up for adoption as an unwed teen, she's understandably wary. What if he looks like his father instead of Ward?

The boy, now a man, is also wary. Who are these people who suddenly want him to be a part of their lives? Where were they when he was growing up, when he needed to feel a part of something bigger? After meeting each other, everyone's fears dissipate.

Then Ward passes away unexpectedly. Although devastated, Kate is thankful he never knew the truth. Facing the rest of her life alone, she returns to work in the company he founded. She's still coming to grips with life as a single when she learns her son was adopted into the family of Jesse, the boy who turned her away as a pregnant teen.

"Having bought this book on the strength of reading Serendipity House I expected it to be a good read. I was not disappointed. It was that and more. Lovely read. I shall be happy to read all other books by this author."

Seb Kirby says:

Just to let readers here know about this review of Take No More - the Murder Mystery Thriller:

'It was a few pages before I realized what I was reading: a sort of modern noir. I walked in the hero's shoes, was privy to his thoughts and intruded on his emotions as he was drawn into the mystery of his wife's death. Kirby's spare yet rich prose, his perfect word choices, made this a work that appeared to be effortlessly constructed. That seamlessness is the hallmark of a gifted writer. Definitely recommended.'

A Bottle of Plonk is free for this Leap Year extra day. The review below says it all:

"I enjoyed reading this unusual story. It was a great idea to follow a bottle of wine around, giving us insights into the lives of the people who briefly owned it! I found myself intrigued to wonder who would get it next and how they would be connected to the previous owners. I liked the way that it all worked out in the end."

THE SECRET is on FREE promotion for ONE day today, Leap Year Day! So grab it while you can!

This contemporary, romantic mystery novel is a wickedly woven web of dark secrets, emotional conflict and romantic intrigue. It has very much a character-driven storyline and is in essence a love triangle, but with quite a hard-hitting difference. It a roller-coaster of a story to keep you glued to your Kindle until the bitter-sweet denouement. Enjoy! Hankies at the ready!

Women's fiction with a time-travel twist. Rubies and Other Gems - the Novel

Lily's life isn't going well. Her husband is clueless; her children are rudderless. It's little wonder she seeks comfort in her dreams, unaware that grandmother's rubies have transported her back through time to a safer, saner existence.

When she learns that her dream lover is not a dream after all, but a real man who lived and died years before she was born, family problems mount. Because she can't repair the damage she's done from the past, she vows to stay in the here and now. She almost succeeds when she accidentally sends herself back in time without her return ticket, the rubies.

"I would recommend this novel as one of those books that moves the reader through the days, months, and years of living, that open the reader's awareness to circumstances that, in this case, may be just a bit unique." Judith of The Book Binge.

Carrie, a successful children's author is receiving threatening letters. As they escalate she meets Jake, a respected entrepreneur and VERY single millionaire. Their attraction is as scary to Carrie as it is distracting from the threats. Once Jake knows what's happening he gives all the support a man in love can give. But Carrie retreats behind a solid wall and stays there until a chance encounter brings that emotional wall crashing down. For how long.......a while, or forever?

Psychotic Memoirs. (Coming out the journey within) by David Forest 135 pages at less than £2.00 or $3.00

It was to be an adventure - breaking with the old and finding out who I - David - really was. What begins as an optimistic coming of age story with promises of new friendships and romance, gradually evolves into the principle character and author (David) loosing touch with the outside world. This is initially through perceived stigma and paranoia surrounding sexuality and culminates in alienation and full-scale psychosis. David completes many milestones in his memoirs. He always wanted to live abroad, learn a new language and become immersed in a new culture and this is made possible with his studies as a law and language student. He explores his newfound home in Spain and in the process makes new friends and aquaintances. With one of these (Alex) he shares a particularly strong, intimate attachment but at this point the experiences have already begun to turn somewhat darker. This leads David to examine the concepts of self and reality, the bonds between people and the very ideas of life and being from a state of altered awareness. Entertaining with elements of humour and pathos the memoirs are at times poetic and poignant and lead to a philosophical and metaphysical journey within the human psyche and beyond. Although David is not alone during his psychological problems, by the end his internal exile is almost complete and the deconstruction of what it means to be a human being (living, loving, hoping, dying) poses many existential questions which we all may face at different stages in our lives.

The Oktober Projekt ( first in the CO8 series) - 98p on Kindle for readers who enjoy fast paced spy thrillers

For Nick Torr, a senior officer in the Secret Intelligence Service's (SIS) Covert Directorate CO8, Operation Salvage was intended to be nothing more than a mundane collection from an SIS agent in Moscow. Betrayed, captured, beaten and tortured, Torr's nightmare has only just begun as Moscow attempts to protect its Oktober Projekt, raising the stakes of espionage to terrifying new heights.

"If you like spy thrillers with an ever twisting and at times complex story line then this ones for you, the plots and twists and descriptive feel make you believe you are really there in the midst of the plot. Could easily make a fantastic film. Best spy thriller I have read in a long time" (Amazon review)

The Fanatic - the second in the series is also available for 97p

A very brief blurb about Tomorrow Blossoms

Woman is apprehensive when husband finds son she gave up as an unwed teen, aware he's not the father. Not until husband dies does she meet son's adopted family and discovers it's the family of the boy who turned her away as a pregnant teen.

"Having bought this book on the strength of reading Serendipity House, I expected it to be a good read. I was not disappointed. It was that and more. Great characters whom I cared about and a switchback of a ride for them all. Lovely read. I shall be happy to read all other books by this author."

Selling for 1.02, The Weeping Empress is an epic fantasy with YA crossover appeal.

Chiyo Alglaeca was happy in her life. That is, until it was all taken away. Forced into notoriety, stalked by a mysterious cult, hunted by the emperor, and facing betrayal at every turn she clings to the only safety she can find: two enigmatic men and the sharp bringer of death, Salvation. The Weeping Empress explores the devastating effects of loss, the hunt for redemption, and the price of destiny. It questions the true meaning of evil and asks what monster is not also an innocent?

Parody Lightfoot and the Bane of Time

Parody Lightfoot (not her real name), 13, her big sister, Anna Banana (mostly her real name), 16, and middle bro, Brian (his real name), 15, battle to work out what they're doing then save planet Earth from the dark forces of Father Time! A humorous adventure ensues with dragons, magical weapons (big swords, small axes, funny little compass-thing), time travel, shape-shiftering, a god or too and some DNA stuff. There is also some head-scratching and some emoticons!

Actually £2.01 but according to a bad SOP at work, you can round this down to £2! (probably not on kindle though)

secret past. Then, as she begins to despair at the lack of clues,
help arrives from an unlikely source.
