Just a quick reminder, that The Truth Finder is free today on Amazon Kindle. It’s the last day! (28 Aug 2017)

The Truth Finder is a young adult fantasy novel, about life on Earth in the fifth millennium, where some people have developed special gifts. Those gifts put them in danger of being exploited by those in power. The Earth is mainly contaminated and there are only a few areas that are habitable. It’s a dangerous place to live.

More short stories on Kindle

I published, Pebble on a Beach, back in 2010 in paperback, but I’ve recently revised and re-edited it and it’s now available on Kindle for £0.99 or $0.99. Of course if you have Kindle Unlimited it’s FREE.
In this book of short stories for adults, you’ll find stories of crime, ghost, sci-fi, and much more. Many of the the tales explore human courage and strength while others tackle human frailty. There are more than twenty stories for you to enjoy.

I’m going to revise/tweak this cover in the next month and the new paperback version is on it’s way.

If you read this short book I’d be grateful if you could leave a short review. It really helps authors.

Book Review: A Crazy Act in Uganda by John M.W. Smith

This is written as a story told by Dr Callum MacKenzie about his time in Uganda. He has been paid a lot of money to eradicate a smallpox epidemic, but all is not as it seems. There are plots and counterplots. It is not a safe place to be and more than one person has a love of killing.

The book is written in a compelling way so that you don’t want to put it down.
I highly recommend this book. Enjoy.

A Crazy Act in Uganda costs £7.33 in paperback from Amazon or in Kindle format 99p. The link is here.

Book Review:The Very Worst Riding School in the World by Lucinda E Clarke

This is my five star review on Amazon.

This is a short autobiographical book about the author who has a passion for riding. Her then husband buys her two horses and she acquires two others to look after. When one of her daughter’s friend’s mother offers to pay for a riding lesson, the idea for a riding school is born. This is the first book in a series and I can see it will appeal to children and young adults who are horse lovers.

Book Review: Temptation by Tom Benson


The following is a copy of my five star review from Amazon.

This is a book of excellent short stories in a variety of genre. My favourite one was, Bewitched, which reminds us of how women were persecuted as witches in the past, but this is no old hag. The question is what will her persecutors do and will she find an escape?
All the stories are good, as you would expect from this author. This book is well worth a read. Highly recommended.

Do you like dragons?

This is the story of Desdemona, the dragon without any friends. Will she learn how to make friends? Will she find out who is important to her? Here’s the first page to read.

Once there lived a fine dragon, whose scales were blood red. She stomped over the land making the earth tremble and she gobbled up tree branches and shrubs as she moved.
Sometimes when the town of Wrex was quiet and all the little people were fast asleep she would pop her head over the city walls and roar.
“ROAR!”
Then the people would run out of their homes screaming and screeching. Desdemona, for that was her name, would watch the little people running in all directions, frantically trying to find out where the noise was coming from, and she would laugh.

Desdemona is only available to read in paperback format (at the moment) and is £8.99 from Amazon. Here’s the link.
