New Release: Doubt Revisited by L. J. Greatrex

Without a doubt, Jimmy Giddion’s previous hacking exploits appear to reap everything he hoped for, until by chance he discovers his adversaries were responsible not only for his parents’ sad demise, but with duping him into taking part. Although he now has the life he craves with his family and new wife, the deep-seated urge to reverse the wrong that had been done overwhelms him. Once again with the help of his friend and confidant Paul Max, they devise an ingenious hacking scam so sophisticated, even our pair of computer vigilantes doubt it would succeed.

  

About the Author

L. J. Greatrex was born one of three siblings in a small village in the Midlands, having only moved around the same village three times with just a small break when living in West Kirby on the Wirral. L. J.’s career began with General Electric and progressed through to the financial sector of the steel Industry, spending the most recent years with a classic car parts company and today as their Financial Health Consultant.

Over many years travelling the globe with family and friends for pleasure, the ideas developed and used in the Hackers series (which includes Conscious Revenge, Payback, Just Deserts and Without A Doubt), have been in part attributed to these experiences; that and a vivid imagination has helped create the characters and situations in these three novels.

  

Excerpt

 With a bottle of Southern Comfort and a jug of hot water, the hacking began in earnest.

It was nearly midnight before the first glimmer of light into the scenario appeared.

“I think I have it,” he said triumphantly. “They use similar methods to the genuine traders but with a subtle difference. When financial transactions are completed for each day, the crafty buggers split the resources into several bank accounts using computer automated timed transfers, which are cleverly divided again by varying percentages, some ending up legitimately for taxation purposes into their company bank accounts, with smaller but still significant amounts moved via Grand Cayman into Swiss bank accounts in the name of Ventniek Associates, who are registered as agents.”

“I can’t believe they trust each other enough to transfer the balances into just one account,” I added, fascinated by how professionally he had established the facts.

“If I dig deeper, I feel sure I will find they have divided the spoils again as not even family leave these vast amounts to be ‘divvyed up’ around a table,” he laughed. “I will download the transactions then check for the final resting place of the money. This should complete the disclosure for the South African Revenue Service (SARS).”

New Release: The Long Walk Home by A.M. Keen

In one single day the entire UK changed, and could never revert back to normality. Bombs detonated in every major city across England, releasing the little known ‘Non Compos Mentis Virus,’ and with it destroying seventy-five percent of the population. However, the virus didn’t kill those who contracted it, but instead infected their minds and senses, turning them in to violent psychopaths that can feel no pain and also gave them a new goal in life; to destroy anyone who does not carry the same virus. Bucky Jackson awakes from a minibus crash that killed most of his school cricket team.

Rescued by his friend Johnny, the remaining kids and teachers seek sanctuary inside a hardware shop in a small, Northamptonshire town. As the days pass, they decide to try for a safe zone at a football stadium a few towns away. With every step danger lurks, not only from the zombies that swarm the area in their thousands, but more so from the handful of people who survived the virus outbreak.

As their journey continues, Bucky is looked to as a leader to help them reach their destination. They encounter killer clowns, hordes of the undead and an organised crime outfit as well as dealing with treachery within their own group. Bucky must learn to unite his team and teach them to rely on each other, as their journey may be longer than anticipated…

 Excerpt 

Johnny took a step toward the factory. “You know, I think this the most scared I’ve ever been. Are you all scared?”

A moment of silence occurred between them. The muted sound of laughter and merriment from the criminals emerged in the distance.

“Terrified,” Bucky replied.

No one answered. Lacey looked to her feet. Aaron looked away.

“Hey, come here,” Bucky ordered. They huddled in a circle, each placing an arm around one another.

“We escaped a car wreck, right?” Bucky asked them. “We escaped the clowns and killed Lawro before he did the same to us. We even escaped from being tied to the tractor. We sat in the middle of five thousand zombies migrating right past us. We escaped the football stadium when it became overrun. Those assholes up there don’t know what we’ve been through. They’ve been playing this game with people who haven’t experienced everything we have.”

New Release: Sir Ockham’s Journey by S.D. Birkbeck

A volcano erupts. In Upoverland scientists prepare to drop into its smoky cone. In Goneunderland rumours spread that the blast has uncovered a mass of luxite crystals. The scramble is on and as the two worlds are about to collide, Sir Ockham Bally-Ping and his team of misfit adventurers find themselves stuck in the middle.

  

About the Author

S. D. Birkbeck grew up in rural New Zealand and worked for several newspapers before settling in London in 1996. Thus far, he has published three books in the Tales of Field Mouse series, and two other books in the Goneunderland adventure series, namely “The Beast of Steaming Forest” and “The Knappler’s Burden”. He has also had success in writing short plays.

 

 Excerpt 

 “Within a heartbeat, the blades had cut the ropes leaving just a thread intact. The drone cut out and spiraled into the volcano. Kate looked up at the torn rope. She was now hanging by a few threads.

“Pol!”

“Give me your hand!”

Kate reached out. Their hands were inches apart. Polly swung away. As she swung back she reached out and grabbed Kate’s fingers.

“Got you!”

But she hadn’t.

Kate’s rope snapped and she fell into the volcano.”

 

“Sir Ockham’s Journey” by S. D. Birkbeck is available in paperback and e-book from Amazon UK. It is also available from Amazon US.

New Release: Feather by A.T. Grant

Elliott endures a long, fraught journey to Scotland with his family. Arriving at a loch-side holiday park, some things are familiar and others not quite right. He and his brother argue over different girls, one of whom has a strange request. A riddle leads the brothers into unexpected adventure, and a calamity from the past comes back to haunt them.

 

Excerpt 

 “Stephanie!” A vision suddenly took hold. It was of her, not Madeleine, standing beside him as he steered the ferry to its destination. Elliott shook his head vigorously, trying his hardest to dislodge her from his mind.

“Whatever is the matter dear boy – you look as though you’ve seen a ghost?” The old lady’s tone was strange, almost mocking.

“S-sorry – just realised I’ve forgotten something,” he lied. Elliott wondered why he was still incapable of sustaining happiness for more than a fleeting moment. Even the view appeared to have lost its sparkle. But he already knew the answer: he wasn’t worthy of it.

The old woman studied him attentively. “You’re quite a troubled young man, aren’t you? Nice, but definitely quite troubled.”

Elliott stared back suspiciously: this lady knew more about him than she should. She was also being quite brazenly personal. He inspected the remaining passengers. Fortunately, nobody else was showing a flicker of interest in what she was saying.

 

About the Author

A.T. Grant is married with two children and lives outside Bath in England. He is a Geography teacher at a state secondary school in Thornbury, north of Bristol. He was inspired to write by completing his Ph.D., which explored young people’s relationship with the natural world. As a keen traveller, he also found that regular month-long expeditions to remote locations provided ideal material for his writing. He has written two other novels to date entitled “The Jaguar” (2015) and “Leopard Skies” (2016).

  

“Feather” is currently available in paperback and e-book from Amazon UK. It also available from Amazon US.

New Release: The Haunting of Hattie Hastings by Audrey Davis

 

Some people just won’t take death lying down … ! (NB: cliffhanger ending).

Part one of a fun-filled trilogy about life, death and letting go.

Hattie Hastings is happily married, even if husband Gary drives her up the wall at times. When tragedy strikes, she is left alone and heartbroken, with only an assortment of family and friends to prop her up.

Struggling to cope, she is left reeling when her deceased other half returns, popping up at the most inappropriate times.

Hattie can’t convince anyone that Gary has returned. Not even best friend Cat – now free from the cruel and controlling Stewart – will believe her.

Why has Gary returned? And what will Cat do when her slimy ex-husband tries to worm his way back into her affections?

The Haunting of Hattie Hastings will make you laugh, cry and count down until Part Two …

Purchase from Amazon UK  or Amazon US.

 

About the Author

Scottish-born Audrey studied journalism in Edinburgh more decades ago than she cares to admit. She cut her writing teeth on provincial newspapers (using a typewriter) and a London-based video magazine (another sign of her advanced years).

Engagement to her now-husband Bill took them to Singapore, Australia and Buckinghamshire, England, before they settled in Switzerland in 2002. Along the way they had two boys, both all grown-up and living in the UK.

Her journey to becoming a published author began with an online Writing Fiction course. It took well over a year but, in June 2017, Audrey published her debut romantic comedy novel, A Clean Sweep. It was quickly followed by a shorter and darker prequel, A Clean Break.

The idea for The Haunting of Hattie Hastings came from nowhere, just a random title that popped into her head and from there grew into Part One of a trilogy. It comes under the same genre, but has some poignant scenes and – hopefully – lots of laughs! Audrey admits to being a worrier, and has always used humour as a defence mechanism, as her friends will attest.

When Audrey isn’t writing, she loves shows like The Walking Dead, American Horror Story and Strictly Come Dancing (a strange mix, she knows). Her interests include cooking (and eating pretty much anything apart from oysters), travelling and going to the gym. OK, the last one is mainly to compensate for her passion for food!

Audrey would describe herself as a ‘pantser’ rather than a ‘planner’, preferring to run where a story takes her and scribble copious notes along the way. She’d love to write a page-turning thriller, but fears her natural tendency to see the comic side of life might be an obstacle.

A master of dreams, a failure at life…

After another botched career attempt, Quinn Carmichael escapes to a remote lodge for a weekend recharge, needing respite…especially from the nightmares that haunt even her days. When a wounded, sexy-as-sin stranger faceplants unconscious on her kitchen floor, there’s something disturbingly familiar about him—as in he’s the boy from her childhood dreams.

But when a fateful misstep brings him face-to-face with the one woman who could have saved him once upon a dream—the one woman he treasures above all else—he battles to keep his distance before he destroys her, too. But he would gladly sell his soul for just one taste.

Love draws them together, destiny will tear them apart

With ruthless enemies closing in, Quinn and Zaire must fight to save each other and those they care for before it’s too late—even if it means they’re doomed to live apart forever.

Excerpt

Quinn tossed the note on the coffee table and wrapped one hand around the warm ceramic mug, absently petting Wolfgang with the other. Dusk took over beyond the wall of windows, made darker by the blizzard. Falling snow hid the skirting tree line. Wind howled at the house corners and turned treetops into jerking puppets. The perfect meltdown location. No phones, no people, no problem.

The lamp flickered and died, leaving her with only the dancing firelight, not that she minded. The power had lasted longer than she expected. Stoked fire, hot cider, and now she had a great excuse to procrastinate reading unhelpful flyers. She sipped her drink and wriggled back on the couch.

Wolfgang launched off her lap, kicking papers everywhere and sloshing her drink.

“Bad cat!”

He scurried into the kitchen, out of sight. A distinct thud followed, which meant Wolfgang was up to no good.

“I should’ve sent you off to the Nameless One.” Quinn shoved the remaining flyers aside and nabbed the flashlight from the end table. “You’d make an amazing hat, and there’d be enough fur left to make a stole, the perfect ensemble to compliment her plastic face.”

She flicked on the flashlight and shuffled into the kitchen, ignoring how the light made all the shadows twist and scuttle on the walls and ceiling. Broken bones might bother her, but the dark never had.

Wolfgang expectantly stood at the back door. He meowed, high and plaintive. Nothing looked out of place. Whatever had made the thud wasn’t in the kitchen. Maybe the wind had blown a loose branch against the house.

“What, you’re a snow leopard now? There’s no fancy feline feast waiting out there for you.”

Wolfgang rubbed his cheek against the doorframe, circled, and meowed again.

Thud. The entire door shook.

Quinn jumped. That was no branch. All the horror movies she loved to watch and ridicule flashed to mind, a lot less funny now. Alone in the woods. Killer storm. No electricity. No connection to the outside world.

Wolfgang’s purr rumbled, and he slid his face over the jamb again. The noise hadn’t spooked him even a little, and animals always sensed evil. Wolfgang had had no problem detecting it in Molly.

She squared her shoulders. No one would be roaming around in a blizzard. An animal had probably knocked the trashcan into the door, and a quick look would ease any worry. At the first glimpse of fur or fang—or red, glowing eyes—she’d go for the door slam.

Pushing Wolfgang back with one foot, she cracked open the door. Wind exploded in, ripping the doorknob from her grip and firing snow and ice into her eyes. The door banged into the wall, and the storm’s full force rushed inside. Quinn scrambled for the knob and stopped, frozen by more than the sudden blast of cold.

A man filled the entryway from threshold to frame, dark as the nightfall behind him. Steam drifted from his bare head. Frost coated his short, sable hair, and even in the flashlight beam, his complexion held an unhealthy blue-gray hue. One hand was anchored to the doorpost in a white-knuckled grip. The other brandished a wicked as sin knife.

She shone the light on his face, and her stomach roller-coastered. Her demon. The one who’d haunted her nightmares years ago and then abruptly bailed, never to return. No matter what face he wore, his death-black, abysmal eyes were unforgettable.

Or were her delusions returning with a vengeance?

“Get out of my way.” His chest heaved, and he lurched forward, the knife pointed at her. His guttural words erased any suspicion that he might be another hallucination. He was too present, too solid to be anything but real.

Merde. He was real.
