My first book is free on Amazon today

The Lying Scotsman Kindle front cover pdf-jpgThe Kindle of THE LYING SCOTSMAN is FREE on Amazon from the 27th-28th November. It’s book 2 in The Mug Trilogy of third-person memoirs. The words were triggered by Mug’s entanglement with … let’s call him Michael. Mug was a recently divorced woman in her late forties. Michael was a complex, enigmatic Scottish baggage handler eleven years her junior who was hiding shocking secrets from the world.

Mug began writing a truthful book about their unusual story planning to give it to Michael for Christmas. When she let him read the first few chapters, he threatened to drive off a cliff. Nevertheless, she continued writing her book. After eventually discovering the truth Michael had been hiding for years, it was Mug who wanted to die. The purpose of her book then changed. It became her attempt to make sense of the bizarre events unfolding as she wrote it, and to help her and Michael deal with the aftermath.

It covers her experiences as a teenager at the Isle of Wight Music Festival in 1970, the same year she follows a guru.

Dramatic events follow on from the evening they first meet at a party, where David is attempting to commit an extremely public suicide. Whether you were around during that decade or not, you’re bound to enjoy this nostalgic Slice of the Seventies. Narrated by Tracey Norman, the audiobook is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

My latest book, THE TROUBLE WITH LIAM, is a powerful psychological thriller set in Ireland and Sheffield. It tells the life story of Liam O’Sullivan in all its twisted glory. The book begins with tales of Liam’s challenging childhood in Dublin and follows him through tragic events which change him into a misogynistic, controlling, ultimately lethal bully living in Sheffield. Liam thought he could do as he pleased … until he was taught otherwise. Prepare to be shocked in different ways throughout the book. If you’re not a fan of thrillers or reading books containing violence, sex, and swearing, please avoid The Trouble With Liam. If you enjoy lashings of dark humour, situations to make your eyes pop out, thrills of every kind all wrapped up in a gripping, dramatic storyline, please read on. I’m currently writing the next two books in The Trouble series.

Below is an arty photo of me when I was in the thick of narrating and sound editing Book 1 of The Hostile. I also narrated Her demonic Angel before deciding to leave narration to the professionals so I’d be free to write more books. Narrating two of my own books has given me huge respect for all professional audiobook narrators.

Happy listening!

Today I finished writing the first draft of The Trouble With Liam

It usually takes me approximately four months to write, edit, layout, produce the cover artwork and publish each of my books. A year has passed since I published my twelfth book, Confronting The Hostile. With a dozen books under my belt, I decided to take my sweet time writing book thirteen, but I’m happy to announce I’ve just finished working on the first draft of The Trouble With Liam. I’m excited by how it’s turned out. My latest book is a dark psychological thriller set in Ireland and Sheffield. It follows the dramatic events in the life of  Liam O’Sullivan, an Irishman more attractive on the outside than the inside.

I would have probably published this book by now, but I spent a couple of months helping my best friend, Kathleen Kelly,  to publish her first book, called 11. I edited it for her, laid it out for Kindle and paperback, and produced the cover artwork. It’s just received its first five-star review on Amazon and Kath couldn’t be happier. I’m also happy because the publication of 11 means I’ve been able to return to working on my own book.

I’ve already produced two possible artworks for the book cover that I’m reasonably happy with but I might work on a few more before deciding on the final version. As a former graphic designer, I always enjoy working on my book covers. I also love working on all the drafts that follow on from the first, so, with a cheery wave, I’m off to start working on the second draft of The Trouble With Liam.
