Time for tea

me in cup of The Hostile tea

Why not settle down in … I mean WITH a nice cup of tea and THE HOSTILE, book 1 of The Hostile quartet?

In a rundown area of Manchester, inside the bathroom of a terraced house overflowing with children and dysfunctional parents, a small but 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 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 DIY in the same way again.

The Hostile is a “refreshingly original” contemporary paranormal crime thriller. “Compelling, strange, and wonderful.” Each book in the 4-book series can be read as a stand-alone. The other books in this “bizarrely captivating” quartet are Holiday for The Hostile, The Hostile Game, and Confronting The Hostile. The Hostile Series Box Set is also available.

Afternoon tea with author Jacqueline Ward

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday’s ‘Afternoon Tea with author Jacqueline Ward’ event. It was held in the perfect setting of Alexandra Park’s Conservatory in Oldham. Jacqueline gave a reading from her psychological thriller, Perfect Ten, then enthralled the audience with an informative talk about her career and the publishing industry. I’m looking forward to reading my signed copy of Perfect Ten.

It was lovely to meet Jacqueline for the first time and to reacquaint myself with Phaedra Patrick and Dan Forrester. (Thanks for the lift home, Phaedra. Much appreciated.)

The event was part of Oldham Library’s annual Bookmark Festival. A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
