Had me gripped from the start a concoction of dark and light writing you fall right into the girls mind and get pulled into how she feels you dont want to like her or even understand her but how it is written you really do get pulled into her mind. A excellent short story and a must read.

 

“The N Days” by Author John Murray McKay

This book is about human strength and determination, our sheer will to survive against all odds. I can see this one day being a film, get ahead of the crowd and purchase your copy now!
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GVECIKO

When the world we all knew went wrong and the monsters of our deepest nightmares began to stalk the earth, there was a woman who chose to search out and find Sanctuary amidst the increasingly nightmarish landscape of America. 
These are the N Days. 
Welcome to the story of one Samantha Worthington Day. She is on the run from a demon horde that has torn through the fabled Dreamscape and destroyed everything she ever loved. She is looking for the fabled Sanctuary of America, a place where humanity can find hope, defend that which they believe in, and start rebuilding their shattered world. 
As an added attraction, you too can join Samantha on her perilous journey throughout her experiences by tracking her epic journey with the aid of the GPS coordinates provided within the text of her chronicles. 
She has a long way to go, and her amazing destiny is yet to be revealed. 
Called of Lightning, Called of Darkness, Called of Light! 
Journey and experience the Days of N with Samantha Worthington Day.

Alexander Kavalier – A Living Ghost 

 This holiday season is all about goodwill, peace on earth and loving each other, but what about justice? Revenge?

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant short story 10 Nov 2013
By Mrs. G. Horsfall
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given a copy of this short story as a gift. As I don’t normally read ghost/horror stories I was a little apprehensive about reading.
However, once I started I could not put it down. This is more a story to tempt the imagination than scare; it’s a story of redemption and of good triumphing over evil. You feel Jacks terror at the start and the authors descriptions are so good the hairs on the back of my neck where stood on end, but you understand why Jack takes up the offer and becomes the baddie in the book. A baddie you just have to love.
I really enjoyed this short story and look forward to reading more from this new author; I think he may just have converted me to being a ‘horror’ reader.

Christmas is fast approaching, and I must admit I often struggle to get into the festive spirit. It is true that once we loose our belief in Santa Claus and we start buying the presents rather than just receiving them, that the day looses that magic we once clung to.

Now don’t assume that I am a Grinch, or an Ebeneezer tight with his pennies, I’m not (though my bank balance doesn’t appreciate that). But I find even now a gift I wasn’t expecting is often the one which gives me the most joy, hopefully I have bought them one in return or that situation becomes incredibly awkward. For me the magic of Christmas is still kept in that moment when you realise someone cares, who you didn’t suspect did. The gift itself then becomes irrelevant, but the gesture speaks louder than words or price tags ever could.

So this Christmas I want to give a gift, this isn’t a big gift, it isn’t worth a great deal in monetary value, but it is a piece of me which i offer to you. Simply reply to this post, telling me about your best gift (in box form) that you received at Christmas (or birthday), and the best reply will win a copy of my book, “A Living Ghost”  http://smarturl.it/alivingghost.horror 

Merry Christmas!

 

The season of goodwill is on its way, and everyone is running around desperately trying to find the perfect gift. I thought I would help you all by suggesting some books which many people will love!

Or do you someone who loves horror? Scaring themselves with what might happen in a world of darkness and potential evils?

Then try the “Descent Into Darkness Series”. Thus far the collection includes 2 horror shorts, with more releases coming in the New Year.

 

“Meant” follows the tale of a young woman, trapped in her idea of love and the way her mental state impacts not only her life but that of her ‘enemies’. The story is available free through Titan Inkorp’s website – http://smarturl.it/meant.titan

I am beginning this blog today.

Why have i started it?

Largely because I am aware this is a popular thing for authors to do, (I might as well follow the trend), as well as wanting to get involved with the blog tours which I have seen happening. Curiosity there for you.

But also because I enjoy meeting new people, in whatever form, and this seems a great way to go about meeting people and promoting myself and my work.

 

That all being said, what can you look forward to in my blog? well…

Words of wisdom from me (They don’t happen very often, but when they do I shall be sure to share!)

Extracts/excerpts from my work. I love opinions, so get sharing yours with me!

Pictures which inspire me. Inspiration is key to development.

Reviews of books I have read (old and new).

The odd author interview, I feel that these are interesting and it will mean you have more than just myself here

And finally, writing tips. I have picked up many in my years of writing and from working with writing development agencies, it is only fair therefore, that I give back, and pass these wisdom’s on to you.
