The dark strain by Gary M. Martin

This book is the second book in the dark series. It can, however, stand-alone. It has its own unique story but connects via the main character of the first book, "The coming of dark". I had not intended there to be a second book after "The coming of dark". The idea came to me years later. This book is more in the way of the superhero in the comic books. But the individuals in this story are [...]

Furtive Liaison by Elskidor Xell

This book is about a friendship between two young girls that develops into love. Since they are born into families that require them to marry and produce heirs, their love for each other seems hopeless. Their commitment to each other and the obstacles they face is the meat of this story, taking these characters through about 30 years of their lives. When I was in the process of rewrites and [...]

Medley of Treason (The Lady of the Water Book 2) by Elskidor Xell

Medley of Treason is the second book in The Lady of the Water series, Innocence Interrupted being part one, and Furtive Liaison acting a prequel tale. This book has a little of everything fantasy: magic, politics, adventure, love, deceit, treachery. Even the characters are a smorgasbord- from the white knight, the anti-hero, to the blood-thirsty villain, from the innocent young women to a jaded [...]

Free For All - Four Things God's Amazing Grace Can Do for You by Lester Spencer

"Everyone needs grace at some point at some point, which means the market for Free For All is anyone with a heartbeat." -Dr. Beau Adams One of the most beautiful stories of God's pursuing grace has to be the Old Testament story of Joseph. (In fact, the splendid Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy believed it to be the greatest story of all time). As a young man, Joseph had a dream in which his [...]

Twists in the Tale - Collected ghost stories and psychological suspense (Let Storm Clouds Pass Book 5) by Raymond Nickford

Although my degree was in Psychology and Philosophy, my interest in the lonely, the outsider and the dysfunctional and their search for love has been inspired more by life and a feel for translating life into character and so into fiction. I suppose my love of the expressive power of language leaves my work hovering somewhere between literary fiction and character observation - characters [...]

Via Baltica by Allan Neil

Written 12 years ago, this is an account of a road trip I undertook to circumnavigate the Baltic Sea in July 2007. I was initially motivated by curiosity about the geographical features and populations of the countries visited, i.e. France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. In addition I had been fascinated for some years by the effects of [...]

The Auchencookie Chronicles by Allan Neil

I was brought up in a small town in the Lothians whose economy relied on mining and papermaking. I left the town many years ago, but have retained a deep affection for the way it was when I left. Nowadays the town is completely different - the mines and mills have long gone and its new inhabitants are a world away from the old ones. Whilst the Auchencookie of the book and its title is not the [...]

A Week in the Life of Chairdog Bongo by Allan Neil

I've always been a dog man, and up until the arrival of a new Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, I'd always had Labrador Retrievers - 3 yellows and one black. It soon became obvious that Jossy (his real name) was a character above and beyond his predecessors, so decided to write about him, changing his name to Bongo for the sake of the book. The story is aimed not only at dog lovers, but I felt the [...]

Lost Connection by Allan Neil

In 1953, when I was just 14 years of age and was walking through a park in Edinburgh I came across a distressed young girl, who transpired to be 12 years old. Worried, I sat down beside her and she poured her story out to me - a total stranger. She was being abused by her mother's boyfriend, a thief who was also her pimp; Mum was 'on the game'. Coming from a secure, if impoverished working [...]

Mother, Me and Mantel by Y I Lee

I am a Christian author, and have written eight books. This book is my autobiography. My aim in writing it, is to share how awesomely wonderful God has been in my life. This is a book I have felt urged to write for a long time. It's not been easy. Remembering the painful times as a child, stirred long buried emotions. Nevertheless, it was certainly a cathartic experience. There are many [...]

Seven Deadly Sinners - Drought, Flood, an Outback Pub - and a Serial Killer by Carmel McMurdo Audsley

Surprising, delightful and fun to read, this whodunit is so well written. From the Texan with the big cigar and his flirty wife, to the overweight coach driver and bizarre young lad with a penchant for collecting butterflies and peering behind doors, it kept my interest to the very end. Now that I know who the killer is, I'm going to read it again and look for clues.

The Sons of Godwine - Part Two of The Last Great Saxon Earls by Mercedes Rochelle

When moving from GODWINE KINGMAKER to THE SONS OF GODWINE, I made a drastic change in POV (point of view) from third person to first person. This is very unconventional, I admit, especially since I started the second book then shelved it for about twenty years. When the time came to pick it up again, I was astounded that it was written in first person. I didn't even remember doing this! What [...]

The Undertaker - Masquerade by Carmel McMurdo Audsley

Good story, well-written and interesting to read about Edinburgh in the 1800s. I like Kate's spirit friend, Davey the coffin maker and James, her erstwhile suitor who were also in the first book 'The Undertaker'. There is a third in the series, and I intend to read it now to see how the relationships develop. There were some great twists in this tale of a woman who disguised herself as a man in [...]

Shadow in Ar'Sanciond by Sarina Langer

Shadow in Ar'Sanciond is the first novella I've ever written, which was exciting and daunting. I knew very quickly when I was writing the Relics of Ar'Zac trilogy that it needed a prequel—so much magic gone wrong that I couldn't explain in the main series!—and since I love a prequel, writing this one was a no-brainer. Relics of Ar'Zac asked what it would be like to have magic in a world where [...]

Tommy's Toyland Nightmare - A Tale of Fantasy and Horror by J.Z. Pinder

I was reading an article online about Madame Tussaud's world-renowned wax museum in London. Couple this with memories of Christmas shopping as a child in Wanamaker's huge department store in Philadelphia and one day I began writing this tale of horror and fantasy. Tommy Perkins stared in wide-eyed fascination at the ghastly scene in the window. A tall man with a purple scar running the full [...]
