The Kindle of my latest book, The Hostile Game, is FREE on Amazon 28th-30th April

 

 

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.

The Hostile Game, the third book in The Hostile series, is a gripping contemporary paranormal crime thriller. It was published on Amazon in Kindle and paperback editions in April 2017 and can be read as a standalone like the other books in this unusual series.

Readers tell me The Hostile Game is even better than the first two books, The Hostile, and Holiday for The Hostile. I’m currently writing book four of the series, Confronting The Hostile.

Each of my ten Kindle editions is £0.99, or equivalent currencies, on Amazon and always free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers. The paperback versions won’t break the bank either. If you enjoy audiobooks, two of my books, The Hostile, and Her demonic Angel, are also available on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes as audiobooks.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening in fascinating company

I mistakenly thought yesterday was Hug an Author Day, which is why I can be seen invading authors Elizabeth Haynes and Rachel Abbott’s personal space in this photo. They each signed a copy of one of their books for me after giving a riveting talk about crime writing to an audience at Oldham Library yesterday evening. They shared a platform with author Daniel Cole, but he wisely avoided a photo opportunity with me. He probably feared I’d crack his ribs. I once hugged Val McDermid at the same venue. She’s never been the same since.

One of my little rituals

True to form, as soon as the postman delivered my newly published tenth book, The Hostile Game, through my letterbox, after examining it and finding it flawless, I threw it on the living room floor with the rest of my books, whipped out my iPhone and shot a few photographs.

 

The Hostile Game has now joined my other nine books on their own special shelf, next to a bronze naked lady sculpted by my brother. Steve had been a prolific sculptor before suffering a severe stroke several years ago.

In four or five months, I’ll hopefully be repeating the process when I’ve finished writing book eleven, Confronting the Hostile, book four of The Hostile series. I’ve written five chapters, but there’s no hurry. I usually write from 11 am until 6 pm each day, so it’s hard not to write a 200-page book every few months, including rigorously editing and designing it. When it comes to writing, I’m a disciplined enthusiast.

Another landmark day

I’m excited and delighted to be holding the first paperback copy of The Hostile Game, book three of The Hostile series, only two days after it was published on Amazon. It’s only £5.75 or equivalent currencies. At the end of April, the Kindle version will join the paperback version on Amazon.

I’m currently writing book four of the series, Confronting The Hostile, which will be my eleventh book. Each book in this unusual paranormal thriller series can be read as a standalone.

I published the paperback of The Hostile Game today

Today, 17th April, I published the paperback edition of The Hostile Game on Amazon, a couple of weeks ahead of publishing the Kindle version. I could also publish the Kindle today, but I’m waiting for some of my Facebook launch team to finish reading the kindle version. I’ve received enough positive feedback from those who’ve already read it to know it’s ready to publish. A couple of them have said it is the best book of the series. I’m currently writing book four, Confronting The Hostile. Each book in this paranormal thriller series can be read as a standalone.

The main reason I’ve released the paperback edition before the Kindle is so that my ancient mother can read it. She doesn’t enjoy reading Kindle books, only paperbacks. I want to hear what she thinks of my tenth book. She should receive the copy I’ve sent her in a couple of days. She has no idea it’s on its way so it’ll hopefully be a pleasant surprise. She enjoyed the other two books in the series. My sister, Ali, is staying with my mother in Jersey for a few days, so hopefully she’ll have a chance to also read it. Ali literally raved about Holiday for The Hostile, book two in The Hostile series, claiming she even had dreams about it afterwards. Naturally, I’m hopeful that there should also be readers, other than my family, who will enjoy The Hostile Game.

The excitement is mounting

As my daughter and her husband recover from yesterday’s long flight to Delhi, then Kathmandu, in preparation for the start of their epic honeymoon trek to the base camp of Mount Everest, I’m designing the back cover for the paperback edition of The Hostile Game. I’ll then be carrying on with writing book four. Could our lives be any more different?

Here is my first design for the back cover of the paperback edition. Any thoughts?

Terry, John, and Robert in my Facebook launch team for The Hostile series have now read this latest book and given me valuable feedback. Zoe has reached chapter 20. Their reaction has been extremely positive and encouraging, to put it mildly. I can’t wait to publish The Hostile Game but I’ll hold off until the end of this month when I’ll be offering the Kindle for free on Amazon for a couple of days. The excitement is definitely mounting.
