Short Story Bonanza

Do you like short stories? Mine are aimed at adults, but are not ‘adult’ short stories. They’re aimed at people with busy lives, who want to read a complete story as they have a cup of coffee or pass the time on a journey. Both books contain multiple genre, so if you like variety, these books are for you.
This weekend both e-books of short stories, Pebble on a Beach and The Mermaid, are free.

Here’s a link to Amazon UK for Pebble on a Beach. and for The Mermaid.

Here’s the USA link for Pebble on a Beach and for The Mermaid.

This is the last of my freebies for a while, so I hope you download and enjoy. Free 22-24 September 2017.

Just a reminder that all my e-books are free on Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited, all the time and if you purchase the paperback then you can have the ebook for free.

The Truth Finder free today

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.

Why not grab a copy!

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.

The Body in the Snow by Christoph Fischer – Book Review

the-body-in-the-snow
This is a beautifully written book, with well crafted characters. Beth, the lead police officer, investigates the murder of a young woman, who is found dead in the snow. Beth is not the perfect police officer, but in spite of her flaws, she is persistent in her aim to find the killer. Her friendship with Bebe, a singer and suspect, is not best practice, but from both sides it is rather endearing.
There are only three houses in the hamlet where the murder is committed and they are cut off by heavy falls of snow. Bebe, Dora and Ian and Christine have chosen to live in this isolated hamlet for various reasons.
The reader doesn’t have to deal with gory details of the murder. The key to this book is the puzzle of who was where, when and what could be the possible motive to kill the victim. Alongside the investigation is Bebe’s determination to arrange a comeback for her singing career, in spite of her inefficient manager.
I really enjoyed this book and would certainly recommend it highly.
