Potholes and Magic Carpets is a contemporary character-driven novel. It looks at the dramatic incidents, challenges, and temptations in the lives of four couples of varying ages, professions and sexual persuasions, all linked by blood or friendship. The negative, selfish, sometimes violent natures of several characters in the book wreak havoc on the innocent. A tale of not so simple folk. The page-turning action in Potholes and Magic Carpets takes place in rural Kent and London. It’s published on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions.
The Kindle edition of my paranormal crime thriller, Random Bullets, will be free on Amazon tomorrow, 25th May until 27th May.
After shooting and killing his nephew, a gunman runs amok in a London park. What drives Edward to commit such atrocities? Who will survive yet another of his moments of madness? Set in Jersey, Cornwall, London, Manchester and places not of this world, Random Bullets is a contemporary crime thriller with a paranormal twist.
‘Action-packed, thought-provoking, a real ride. I couldn’t put it down,’ ‘crime with a twist,’ ‘An insightful look behind the many faces we wear, and how burning resentments can take you into madness and murder,’ ‘This is a very well thought-out book.’ ‘Kinetic — really zips along at a pace. I was really drawn in.’ These are just a few of the reviews Random Bullets has received; 23 5-star reviews across all Amazon sites so far. Your review would also be much appreciated.
I was interviewed in February 2016 by two BBC Radio 4 producers as part of their Analysis programme on Inheritance. They’d heard that Random Bullets deals with the divisive subject of disinheritance and its aftermath, something I’ve experienced personally. Published in November 2015, Random Bullets is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions. An audiobook edition of this favourite book of mine is in production. Audiobook versions of two of my other books are already available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

An excerpt from RANDOM BULLETS http://amzn.to/2btTrAC.
Each book in The Hostile series of paranormal crime thrillers can be read as a standalone. The series consists of The Hostile, Holiday for The Hostile and The Hostile Game. I’m currently writing book four, Confronting The Hostile.
Book 1. THE HOSTILE. (published in 2016. 192 pages) http://amzn.to/2pAHALo
In a rundown area of Manchester, inside the bathroom of a terraced house overflowing with children and dysfunctional parents, a powerful entity befriends young Serena with disastrous results. This unlikely enigmatic force not only dramatically affects introverted Serena’s life but also threatens the well-being of everyone she knows, especially those people who’ve earned the strange girl’s displeasure. It soon becomes clear that nobody should ever upset Serena … if they know what’s good for them. After reading The Hostile, you’ll never look at D.I.Y. in the same way again.
Available on Amazon as a Kindle and paperback. The audiobook is available on Audible, Amazon and iTunes.
Book 2. HOLIDAY FOR THE HOSTILE. (published in 2016. 208 pages) http://amzn.to/2fJTSg0
Serena, plus her unusual friend and partner in crime, Tile X, reluctantly find themselves suffering a family holiday at her eccentric grandfather’s hovel in Ireland. Who will manage to escape intact from their dramatic holiday from Hell?
Available on Amazon as a Kindle and paperback. The audiobook is in production.
Book 3. THE HOSTILE GAME. (published in 2017. 179 pages) http://amzn.to/2oYlsqC
In The Hostile Game, Manchester-based Serena, now eighteen and pregnant, finally discovers the reason why Tile X befriended her seven years before. She doesn’t like what she hears. Mayhem ensues, with a retired Irish police superintendent becoming more involved than perhaps he should have.
Available on Amazon as a Kindle and paperback. The audiobook is in production.
Each of my ten Kindle editions on Amazon is £0.99 or equivalent currencies. They are always free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers. The paperback versions won’t break the bank either.

Here’s a review of Potholes and Magic Carpets on Amazon. Thank you to whoever wrote it. I think they’re American because of the way they spell humour.
“I absolutely LOVE Ms. Mutter’s writing style. Her descriptions are captivating to me, as a lifelong fan of all things “British”, I enjoy her humor and the clarity with which she delivers her characters. I feel like I know them well by the time I’m well into each chapter. This title is on my Christmas list for myself! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME! Thanks for sharing your wonderful talents!”

In other news, I changed the cover of The Lying Scotsman today and have spent the last week shortening the book, although it still is 400 pages long. My writing style has naturally evolved since I started writing The Lying Scotsman, my first book despite being book 2 of The Mug trilogy. It’s the book that first made me want to concentrate full-time on writing.
I wanted to revise the entire book, so I did; one of the benefits of self-publishing. I also used a greyscale image of the original cover, without the text, inside the book, as it would be a shame to waste it. The changes I’ve made will probably go live on Amazon in a few days. It took a while before my improved cover of Random Bullets showed on Amazon, but today I noticed the new cover is up there. I’ve also revised the cover and text of the paperback version of The Lying Scotsman and hopefully the new version will also soon be on Amazon.
I have to put the finishing touches to my hour-long talk about my books that I’m giving on 24th January at Oldham Coliseum. My daughter is arriving for Christmas on 21st December before she and her husband fly off to New York on Boxing Day to relive when he proposed to her two years ago on the lake in Central Park. Who says romance is dead? Her husband could teach The Lying Scotsman a thing or two, ha!
Merry Christmas and a Happy 2017 to everyone!

The Kindle edition of my brand new thriller, HOLIDAY FOR THE HOSTILE, is FREE on Amazon today, 6th December.
Holiday for The Hostile, second book in The Hostile series, is a gripping contemporary paranormal thriller with a splash of horror. It was published on Amazon in Kindle and paperback editions on 1st December 2016. Serena, plus her unusual friend and partner in crime, Tile X, reluctantly find themselves suffering a family holiday at her eccentric grandfather’s hovel in Ireland. Who will manage to escape intact from their dramatic holiday from Hell?
Readers tell me they think Holiday for The Hostile is superior to book one, The Hostile, the paranormal thriller I published 8 months before its sequel. My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to ensure book three in The Hostile series is even more exciting than the first two. No pressure.
Here’s a snapshot of what a few of the readers who’ve read it say about Holiday for The Hostile:
“Ms Mutter has carved out a new niche for herself. And from where I’m standing, she’s way out in front … With some books, you get an idea where things are going and where they’re likely to end. Not this one. Every chapter was a surprise with new characters and situations and a bunch of wonderfully inventive deaths.”
“It has plenty of scary bits so if you don’t like scary bits then maybe it’s not the book for you but I personally can’t wait until book three is out.”
“The action moves to Ireland this time with lots of unforeseen consequences. With two guardian ghosts looking out for Serena, acting almost like Bill and Ben at times, there really are some light-hearted moments. The end is a total surprise. Was expecting a skeleton in the family closet, but it turns in a completely different direction, keeping you on your toes and guessing.”
“Excellent. The story got deeper & you get to know more about Serena and Tile X drops a deep hint! Really looking forward to more. Joy tells a good tale.”
