A snapshot of Joy Mutter’s Books

I’m Jersey-born and lived on the island for 18 years. I worked as a graphic designer for 20 years in Kent. I’m now a full-time indie author living in Oldham. I published my 10th book, The Hostile Game, in May 2017.

Random Bullets is a contemporary crime thriller with a paranormal twist. Set mainly in Jersey, Manchester, Cornwall, London, and places not of this world. It’s my personal favourite. http://amzn.to/2ahXcc4

The books in the Mug trilogy are A Slice of the Seventies, http://amzn.to/2tIIV1s, The Lying Scotsman, http://amzn.to/2c0sEy3, and Straws http://amzn.to/2bD3Dr0. These books are all loosely autobiographical.

Potholes and Magic Carpets is a contemporary novel set in rural Kent and London. A tale of not so simple folk. http://amzn.to/29gA3bE

Her demonic Angel is my baker’s dozen of short stories in various genres. It is also available as an audiobook. http://amzn.to/295kGjn

Living with Postcards is a perfect present from the past. It is my only non-fiction book and is colour-illustrated throughout. http://amzn.to/22qrcH1

The Hostile series is an unusual collection of paranormal crime thrillers, mostly set in Manchester. Each can be enjoyed as a standalone.

My 3 audiobooks in The Hostile series

Step into the ‘refreshingly original’ world of The Hostile and lose yourself in a ‘bizarrely captivating’ read. Each book in The Hostile series of paranormal crime thrillers can be read as a standalone. The entire series could be yours for under £3.00 if you bought all three Kindle editions. This collection consists of The Hostile, Holiday for The Hostile, and The Hostile Game. I’m currently writing book 4, Confronting The Hostile. Each book in the series is available in Kindle and paperback editions on Amazon. They each have an audiobook version on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.
 
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 earn 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 (£0.99) and paperback (£5.50). The audiobook is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. http://adbl.co/2tDHDp4
 
Book 2. HOLIDAY FOR THE HOSTILE. (published in 2016. 208 pages) http://amzn.to/2fJTSg0
Serena and Tile X, her unusual friend and partner in crime, find themselves reluctantly 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 (£0.99) and paperback (5.95). The audiobook, narrated by Alexander Doddy, is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. http://adbl.co/2uhDMOd
 
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. “Another wonderfully offbeat paranormal thriller, mellowed with a delicious dark humour.” Available on Amazon as a Kindle (£0.99) and paperback (5.75). The audiobook, narrated by Alexander Doddy, is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. http://adbl.co/2thKeUz

Here’s a snapshot of what a few of the readers 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 … can’t wait until book three is out.” “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. Really looking forward to more. Joy tells a good tale.”

Dear audiobook lover

There are now audiobook editions of four of my eleven books available on Audible, Amazon and iTunes. Holiday for The Hostile and The Hostile Game audiobooks were both published on these sites in the last few weeks. Alexander Doddy perfectly narrated books 2 and 3 of The Hostile series. He brought each character to life and I couldn’t have been happier with his performance. I’m looking forward to him narrating book 4 in the series, Confronting The Hostile. I’ve almost finished the first draft.

I chose to narrate Her demonic Angel and The Hostile, but I’ve changed my mind about narrating any more of my books and will leave it to professional narrators in future. Narrating and sound editing are extremely time-consuming. My time is better spent writing the books, not narrating them, although I received decent reviews for my attempts.

I hope to add more audiobooks in the next year or two. The next books to be turned into audiobooks will be Random Bullets, Potholes and Magic Carpets, and A Slice of the Seventies.

I’m a huge fan of audiobooks and hope you are too. Happy listening!
