Lovely touches of humour …

8 February, 2017

I’ve just finished Rusalka. Loved it! All the stories gripped my imagination, forcing me to read on in anticipation. Your brilliant descriptive style, with lovely touches of humour, brought each character and situation to life so vividly for me. My favourite was The Rusalka Ritual itself, followed by most of the others, but particularly A Picnic at Knowles, with Dracomagon’s golf game! It’s a long time since I picked up a fiction book to read – other than a play – and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Keep them coming! D Henty

I received this lovely review of my first short story collection on Monday morning. What a wonderful way to start the week!

Have you read it yet? If not, it’s currently just 99p / 99c at most online stores this month.

If you have read this book of mine, I would really appreciate a review of it if you have time!

Have you seen my VERY short video about it at You Tube?

99p at
Amazon UK
99c at all the European Amazon sites as well as
Barnes & Noble

Although I have requested that Amazon US reduce the price to 99c, the lowest they seem to be able to get it is $1.22.

The Rusalka Ritual …

15 December, 2016

Five tales set in fantastic locations; an arid canyon, a smoke-wreathed ale house, a moonlit sea, a haunted inn and a golf course …

Five tales encompassing human emotion; expectations disappointed, self-sacrificing love for the unlovable, will power that overcomes dark enchantment, bravery in the face of evil and fear of the unknown in hum-drum life …

Five narrative voices ranging from a young child, a redeemed murderer, a strong-willed young woman, damsels awaiting rescue and a retired banker haunted by death …

Available at Amazon UK, Amazon US, iTunes, Nook, Kobo, Page Foundry and Scribd
