Maybe Misery by C.S. Bailey
26 July 2014 19:52 (GMT)Maybe, Misery by C.S Bailey
I wasn't quite sure what this book was about before I started and it starts off quietly enough. Talon is a man who wants to cure cancer but ends up, well certainly NOT curing anything.
The story is non-linear. We go back and forth to particular points in Talon's life, told in the first person, as a diary. It took me a bit of reading to get the hang of this, but once I actually paid attention to the dates at the top of chapters, I could follow it easily enough. It felt as though Talon was speaking directly to me
I didn't really like Talon as a man. Whilst he wanted to do good, he was a swearing sex addict, who didn't care about most women. Once I got into the story, it was very addictive reading, fitting all the pieces together.
On the whole, an enjoyable, gripping bio-thriller.
Robert Rankin's 65th birthday treat 27th July 2014
26 July 2014 11:24 (GMT)As mentioned on Robert Rankin's facebook page:
"It will be my 65th birthday on 27th July, so I would like to give you some presents. My son Rob has kindly set this up. But it is complicated.
Prepare for confusion.....
From the 27th July 8.00am till the 31st July 8.00am
On amazon uk and amazon.com
Web Site Story will be free
The Cornelius Trilogy will 99p/99c for 32 hours.... Then go up to £1.99/$2.99 for 32 hours.... Then go up to £2.99/$4.99 for 32 hours before returning to normal price....
All other books, those published by FAR FETCHED BOOKS (except Snuff Fiction and Nostradamus) will be 99p/99c for the duration.
Amazon can only set the promotion up on Snuff Fiction and Nostradamus for a shorter period.
Well that should cause untold amounts of confusion... As it always does. But I hope it makes some sense.
COULD YOU PLEASE SHARE THIS POST WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE
Happy birthday from me."
I looked up which ones were the "Far Fetched Books" ones and that includes the Brentford Trilogy books. Those are the paperbacks I've vowed never to get rid of as I've read them so many times, but for a pound each, I might just be tempted to spend a £6 to get them on kindle.
Alana Woods' book reviews: Counterpoint by Paul V Walters
20 July 2014 07:44 (GMT)Something wicked this way comes … and, boy, is it wicked.
Counterpoint is the final book in Paul V Walters’ Jonathan Savage trilogy and it doesn’t disappoint. In fact it ramps up a dozen rungs or so on the ladder delivering a non-stop fireworks show, burst after pyrotechnic burst.
The main players from Final Diagnosis and Payback unite to meet their varied ends. The villains are villainous, the heroes are real and, given what’s happening in our world, the scenario is all-too-terrifyingly possible.
The pace never slackens and the words flow effortlessly to create scenes easily conjured into images.
A really good finale. Thanks for the entertainment, Mr Walters!

"Run, Run, Run" (a crime thriller) is FREE today and tomorrow
28 July 2014 15:26 (GMT)<<< A #1 Bestselling Thriller on Amazon UK >>>
Run, Run, Run by Mark Capell is a crime thriller, a novel that never lets up, taking an ordinary couple into a life they could never envisage.
After giving evidence against a gangster in a murder trial, Dan Thompson is whisked away into the Witness Protection Scheme. But even that can't protect him and his wife, Sally.
Somebody knows their new identity - somebody who shouldn't.
Frank Tong is an artist who finds inspiration for his paintings from the violence of his criminal life. When his brother is put away for murder he wants revenge.
And Frank has a mole in the Witness Protection Scheme.
Dan and the pregnant Sally have no choice. They have to flee. They go on the run from both sides of the law.
They must learn to lie, steal, shoot and fight to survive.
They can't use their credit cards, cash machines, mobile phones - anything that will give away their location. They must constantly look over their shoulder. It's living life like a criminal - a difficult task for two law abiding people.
What will it take to return to a normal life? How far are they prepared to go? What will they sacrifice for their freedom?
Run, Run, Run by Mark Capell is a crime thriller that will have your heart racing and your mind buzzing.
...Sometimes the best way to get justice is to run away from it...

Free for 2 days - Underneath the Draconian Sky
22 July 2014 10:16 (GMT)Dale M. Chatwin presents his debut novel: When 1107 is hired by saloon proprietor Sylvester Claproot to exterminate a group of escaped residents from the Bachman Gardens Institute for the Criminally Insane, it all seems like a run of the mill extermination: capture, torture and kill. He soon finds himself plunged into a brutal world of sexual lust, unhindered violence and where the fringes of sanity are lost to the winds of time. At the heart of this dark tale is the story of one man's acceptance of his own demise and his journey into a chaotic world where he is forced to chase his death across a brutal dystopian landscape. It is a novel that will keep you reading until the Sun scars the horizon.
Part of a special 5 day promotion, only 2 days left so treat yourself to some top quality FREE literature!
In the end, there is only insanity.
