My sister takes my books on holiday

My younger sister, Ali Houiellebecq​, always likes to take one of my books to read while on holiday. She admits she’s not an enthusiastic reader but Ali has enjoyed Potholes and Magic Carpets in Jersey last summer.

She read Holiday for The Hostile in Tenerife. She enjoyed Holiday for The Hostile so much she raced through it and even dreamt about it.

She has just finished reading The Hostile Game in Costa Rica.

I’m deeply envious she’s been holidaying in Costa Rica since December and won’t be returning until early March. I’ll probably have finished writing the next two books in the Trouble Trilogy by then. I’ve been writing at least a chapter a day since Christmas. Ali says she will leave the paperback of The Hostile Game in Costa Rica so someone else can enjoy reading it.

I prefer to take audiobooks on holiday rather than paperbacks. They’re easier to enjoy when I’m sunbathing. There are nine audiobook editions of my thirteen books. Two were narrated by me, four narrated by Alexander Doddy and three by Tracey Norman. All are available on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.

The audiobook of The Trouble With Liam will be available in a few days

This evening, I was thrilled to press the ‘Approved’ button for the completed audiobook of The Trouble With Liam, my psychological thriller. It’ll be my ninth audiobook. Once ACX has checked it, the new audiobook should be available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes in 10-14 days. It’ll join my 8 other audiobooks on those sites. Tracey Norman has narrated three of them, Alexander Doddy has narrated four and I voiced the other two. Working with narrators to produce an audiobook is one of my favourite occupations.

Tracey Norman – Actress/Voice Artiste has given a stellar performance as narrator of my latest book. I think it’s my best audiobook to date, although I know some of my books aren’t everyone’s cup of tea because I pull no punches. I write them for those who appreciate them.

Tracey admitted she occasionally struggled not to laugh as she was giving life to my words; those of you who’ve read my books are well acquainted with my dark sense of humour. She’s a top quality narrator and I’m hoping she will be free to narrate The Trouble With Russell in late-summer. It should be ready for her to narrate by then as I’ve already written 28 chapters. I can guarantee she will be struggling to suppress some giggles as she works on The Trouble With Russell. Sorry, Tracey, I couldn’t resist.

Happy Birthday to me!

I’ve had a fantastic birthday weekend with my daughter, Zoe. She’s an incredibly busy editor for a magazine, so I particularly appreciate the effort she always goes to each year to travel hundreds of miles to my house to make my birthday special. I gave her a paperback edition of The Trouble With Liam and await her opinion. I’ve warned her how shocking some of the chapters are, but it’s so far received nine 5-star reviews on Goodreads in its first month, so it appears readers enjoy my latest book despite the shocks, maybe because of them.

THE TROUBLE WITH LIAM was published on Amazon on 1.10.2018. It’s a powerful psychological thriller set in Ireland and Sheffield and tells the life story of Liam O’Sullivan in all its twisted glory. It begins with tales of his challenging childhood in Dublin and follows him through sometimes 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 book in the series, The Trouble With Russell.

High praise indeed

Today is a great day. Why? My favourite author, Mark Tilbury, just posted the following about my psychological thriller THE TROUBLE WITH LIAM on Facebook: ‘If you like your fiction dark and gritty and don’t mind a story that tackles some difficult subjects, then I recommend you go get yourself a copy of The Trouble With Liam by Joy Mutter. I’m almost 20% into it and the damn thing won’t let me go plan my next book!’

I feel almost guilty for delaying his next book, which I can’t wait to read as they are always a winner. I only published my book on 1.10.2018 and I think there’s been more interest in it than any of my other twelve books. I’ve already written the first two chapters of the followup book, The Trouble With Wayne. I think I sense a series coming on.

An excerpt from Confronting The Hostile http://amzn.to/2usapMU

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. My latest book is a dark psychological thriller which 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 happy too, 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 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.

Now I can crack on with finishing writing The Trouble With Liam

For the past few weeks, I’ve been working hard editing, designing, and laying out the debut book by my BFF, Kathleen Kelly. It’s called 11. On Tuesday, Kath came to stay at my house so I could show her how to publish 11 on Amazon using Kindle Direct Publishing. After much swearing and laughter, we solved a few technical issues with her laptop and managed to publish 11, her memoir, on 21.8.2018, which, when the numbers in the date are added up, ironically equals 11 11. It’s available on Amazon in Kindle (99p) and paperback (£5.75) https://amzn.to/2LlGNV2

“11 is a true account of Kathleen Kelly’s life and the mysterious phenomena her ordinary life has touched on. Both the ordinary and out of the ordinary experiences were triggered by one event which led her on an extraordinary journey. This story incorporates Kathleen’s memories, including when a mysterious force spoke to her of change. Inside a warehouse in a town in northern England, a trigger activated a chain of phenomenal truths which compelled the author to share her journey with you. 11’s publication date is timed to perfection … 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 11.”

I was happy to do all the work on her book for free as I wanted her to feel the elation I feel every time I publish one of my books, especially the first one. But, she surprised and delighted me by giving me some cash and presents as a token of her gratitude. My real reward for my efforts was to see her face light up when she saw her book appear on Amazon for the first time.

Kath and I should each receive the paperback version of 11 tomorrow, and I’ll just have to imagine how thrilled she’ll be to hold her first paperback. My heart is beating faster as I so clearly remember how it felt when the postman popped my first paperback through the letterbox. As I published four books within the space of a day or so, I nearly fainted with delight and over-excitement each time I heard a thud on my doormat. The four books were A Slice of The Seventies, The Lying Scotsman, Straws, and Potholes and Magic Carpets.

Now I’ve finished working on Kath’s book, I can concentrate on writing the final chapters of my psychological thriller. By the end of this year, I should hopefully be experiencing that now familiar bubbling excitement as I hold the paperback edition of The Trouble With Liam, my thirteenth book.

Here’s a snapshot of what a few readers say about Holiday for The Hostile: “Compelling, strange, and wonderful”; “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 the next book is out”; “The end is a total surprise. I 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.”

My sister, Alison, engrossed in one of my earlier books, Potholes and Magic Carpets, on St Brelade’s beach in Jersey. She and I spent a perfect, sun-drenched week at our mother’s house in Jersey, Channel Islands. My daughter added to the fun by joining us for the first few days of our holiday. I arrived back home yesterday and am looking forward to finishing writing the final chapters of the first draft of my latest book, a psychological thriller called The Trouble With Liam.

It soon becomes clear that nobody should ever upset Serena if they know what’s good for them. After enjoying The Hostile, you’ll never look at D.I.Y. in the same way again. http://adbl.co/2w2YLIm

The Kindle of A SLICE OF THE SEVENTIES is FREE on Amazon from 30th-31st May

A Slice of the Seventies FRONT cover HendrixA Slice of the Seventies tells the true story of Jersey-born Mug, a troubled girl from a recently broken home. It covers her experiences as a teenager at the Isle of Wight Music Festival in 1970, the same year she follows a guru. The book tracks her tumultuous four years as an art student in Coventry, where vegetarian Mug finds herself living next door to an abattoir and a railway shunting yard with David, a fellow art student. 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. This loosely autobiographical book can be read as a stand-alone without having to read The Lying Scotsman, and Straws, books 2 and 3 in the Mug trilogy.

A Slice of the Seventies audiobook cover JPGAn audiobook edition of A Slice of the Seventies, beautifully narrated by Tracey Norman, is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

Doc Togden said in his review, “I have studied and written about this period of British cultural history and find this book completely delightful. Now you don’t need Dr Who’s TARDIS – you have A Slice of the Seventies.” “A thoroughly gripping read – it will make you boogie.”

The Kindle of Living with Postcards is free from 2nd-3rd May

Living with Postcards is my only non-fiction book out of the dozen books I’ve written. It’s packed with colour illustrations and describes my close relationship with old postcards. Each card illustrated in the book is from my own large collection. I’ve collected over 2,000 of these charming, quirky, historical items since the 1970s. I gave a talk to Full Circle members at Oldham Coliseum about Living with Postcards in January 2017. Living with Postcards is a beautiful present from the past that anyone can enjoy. It is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions and is free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
 
“The author shares her impressive knowledge of vintage postcards in an entertaining and informative style. Brimming with lovely reproductions, it’s never dull. A book to read from cover to cover or just dip into. Certainly, a book to revisit. Living with Postcards makes an imaginative present, even to someone like me who has no particular interest in postcard collecting. I can thoroughly recommend it.”

My daughter sent me the link to this article because she thought I’d find it interesting. She was right. If you click on the link above, you may, or may not, find it interesting too.

I’m a big fan of audiobooks and now have audiobook editions of eight of my twelve books on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Four were narrated by Alexander Doddy, two by Tracey Norman, and two by me. Working with these two talented narrators has been a wonderful experience. I plan to publish more audiobooks in the future and hope to soon be working with Alexander and Tracey again.

I’ll probably continue to publish Kindle and paperback editions as well as audiobooks because it costs me nothing except time to do so. I don’t pay for my covers or for book layout because I used to be a professional graphic designer, so I do it all myself.

I 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.

After shooting and killing his nephew, a gunman runs amok in a London park. What drives Edward to commit such atrocities? Who will survive yet another of his moments of madness? Set in Jersey, Cornwall, London, Manchester, and places not of this world, Random Bullets is a contemporary crime thriller with a paranormal twist.
 
“Action-packed, thought-provoking, a real ride. I couldn’t put it down,” “crime with a twist,” “An insightful look behind the many faces we wear, and how burning resentments can take you into madness and murder,” “This is a very well thought out book.” “Kinetic — really zips along at a pace. I was really drawn in.” These are just a few of the reviews Random Bullets has received; 25+ 5-star reviews across all Amazon sites so far. Your review would also be much appreciated.
 
I was interviewed in February 2016 by two BBC Radio 4 producers as part of their Analysis programme on Inheritance. They’d heard that Random Bullets deals with the divisive subject of disinheritance and its aftermath, something I’ve experienced.

A great start to a Sunday morning

My Sunday morning started off brilliantly after I noticed I’d received this wonderful review of my recently released audiobook of A Slice of the Seventies. It was written by a listener in America. I’m sure the narrator of A Slice of the Seventies, Tracey Norman, will feel as thrilled as I am to read his review.
 
Here is what the reviewer wrote on Audible.com:
 
Overall 5* Performance 5* Story 5*
 
Tom Anderson

How The Other Half Lived
 
“A Slice of the Seventies“ is right in my wheelhouse. Protagonist Mug was a British female and I’m an American male but her era was my era. Despite our different nationalities and gender, we seem to be kindred spirits in our formative years. Mug was the woman I was chasing albeit on the other side of the ocean and the angst she felt throughout “A Slice of the Seventies” was inflicted by guys like me. There was so much for me to identify with – and learn from — in this book that geography and gender didn’t seem to matter. It was a journey back in time written expertly by Joy Mutter and read just as expertly by Tracey Norman.
 
If you even vaguely remember the 1970’s from any global location, this is a must listen for you.
 
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

front-cover-holiday-for-the-hostile-new

Serena, plus her unusual friend and partner in crime, Tile X, find themselves suffering a family holiday at her eccentric grandfather’s hovel in Ireland. Who will manage to escape intact from their dramatic holiday from Hell?

Holiday for The Hostile, book 2 in The Hostile series, is a gripping contemporary paranormal crime thriller with a splash of horror. It was published on Amazon in Kindle and paperback editions in December 2016 and can be read as a standalone like the other books in the collection. Book 1 in the series is called The Hostile, book 3 is The Hostile Game. Book 4, Confronting The Hostile, was published in August 2017 along with The Hostile Series Box Set.

The audiobook edition of Holiday for The Hostile, narrated by Alexander Doddy, is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes along with the audiobook versions of The Hostile, The Hostile Game, and Confronting The Hostile.

Here’s a snapshot of what a few of the readers say about Holiday for The Hostile: “Compelling, strange, and wonderful”; “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. I 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.”

The photo below was posted on Facebook by a reader who was enjoying The Hostile Series Box Set this Christmas. I was delighted to stumble across the photo by accident while I was scrolling through a random Facebook book page. The admin on the page had asked what everyone had been reading over the festive season. It was heartwarming that a reader had taken the time and trouble to compose a photo to illustrate what they were reading. She’d already read and enjoyed two of the books when she took the photograph and said she was looking forward to reading the other two in the collection.

I’ll keep it simple

I’ve just popped in to wish everyone a wonderful 2018.

The audiobook of A Slice of the Seventies went live yesterday

The audiobook of A Slice of the Seventies, narrated by Tracey Norman, went live on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes yesterday. It is my eighth audiobook on those sites and the second that Tracey has narrated for me. She also narrated my character-led novel, Potholes and Magic Carpets earlier this year. I’m thrilled by how perfectly she’s narrated Potholes and Magic Carpets and A Slice of the Seventies, the autobiographical first book in The Mug Trilogy. I hope to work with her again soon as she’s a class act with the best diction I’ve ever heard. Like all my other books, A Slice of the Seventies is also available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback formats.

A Slice of the Seventies audiobook on Audible.co.uk

A Slice of the Seventies tells the story of Jersey-born Mug, a troubled girl from a recently broken home. It covers her experiences as a teenager at the Isle of Wight Music Festival in 1970, the same year she follows a guru. The book tracks her tumultuous four years as an art student in Coventry, where vegetarian Mug finds herself living next door to an abattoir and a railway shunting yard with David, a fellow art student. 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. This loosely autobiographical book can be enjoyed as a standalone without having to read The Lying Scotsman, and Straws which are books 2 and 3 in the Mug trilogy.

Doc Togden said in his review, “I have studied and written about this period of British cultural history – and find this book completely delightful. Now you don’t need Dr Who’s TARDIS – you have A Slice of the Seventies.” “A thoroughly gripping read – it will make you boogy.”

It’s that time of year again

Merry Christmas and a fabulous 2018 from me and my books. I’m busy writing books 13 and 14, but not too busy to be planning to enjoy the festive season with my daughter and son-in-law.

One of the books I’m working on is a standalone crime thriller entitled A Shedload of Pain. It’s set in Southern Ireland and Sheffield. The other WIP is book 5 in The Hostile series. I hope to publish them on Amazon in 2018. Happy reading!

man green sky cover plus larger red textTo celebrate my audiobook of Random Bullets, narrated by Alexander Doddy, going live on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes, the Kindle is FREE on Amazon from 13th-14th November.

After shooting and killing his nephew, a gunman runs amok in a London park. What drives Edward to commit such atrocities? Who will survive yet another of his moments of madness? Set in Jersey, Cornwall, London, Manchester, and places not of this world, Random Bullets is a contemporary crime thriller with a paranormal twist.

‘Action-packed, thought-provoking, a real ride. I couldn’t put it down,’ ‘crime with a twist,’ ‘An insightful look behind the many faces we wear, and how burning resentments can take you into madness and murder,’ ‘This is a very well thought out book.’ ‘Kinetic — really zips along at a pace. I was really drawn in.’ These are just a few of the reviews Random Bullets has received; 20+ 5-star reviews across all Amazon sites so far. Your review would also be much appreciated.

I was interviewed in February 2016 by two BBC Radio 4 producers as part of their Analysis programme on Inheritance. They’d heard that Random Bullets deals with the divisive subject of disinheritance and its aftermath, something I’ve experienced personally.

The audiobooks of Random Bullets, and Potholes and Magic Carpets went LIVE yesterday

I’m thrilled to announce that the audiobooks of Random Bullets, narrated by Alexander Doddy, and Potholes and Magic Carpets, narrated by Tracey Norman, both went live on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes yesterday. They join my other five audiobooks on these three sites. I’m delighted with the performances of Tracey and Alexander. Tracey has the most perfect diction I’ve ever heard, and Alexander puts his heart and soul into narrating Random Bullets, just as he did with Holiday for The Hostile, The Hostile Game, and Confronting The Hostile audiobooks. I hope Alexander will be free to narrate A Shedload of Pain, the thriller I’m currently writing. I’ve reached chapter 17, so it won’t be too long before I publish book thirteen.

The audiobook of A Slice of the Seventies will be available by the end of 2017.

 

 

 

 

 

Once Amazon has whispersynced them, which usually takes them about thirty days, they should both be much cheaper to buy. Unlike my Kindles and paperbacks, Amazon sets the price of audiobooks, so authors have no say in audiobook pricing. I’m all for audiobooks costing as little as possible, to encourage people to listen to them. Once both audiobooks have been whispersynced, if you buy the Kindle of either book, you’ll be able to buy the audiobook for much less money than before whispersyncing. The Kindle editions of Random Bullets and Potholes and Magic Carpets are only £0.99 each, and free when I run a free promotion. Remember, all my Kindles are free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers, and the audiobooks are free with Audible trial.

Serena, plus her unusual friend and partner in crime, Tile X, find themselves suffering a family holiday at her eccentric grandfather’s hovel in Ireland. Who will manage to escape intact from their dramatic holiday from Hell?

Holiday for The Hostile, book 2 in The Hostile quartet, is a gripping contemporary paranormal crime thriller with a splash of horror. It was published on Amazon in Kindle and paperback editions in December 2016 and can be read as a standalone like the other books in the collection. Book 1 in the series is called The Hostile, book 3 is The Hostile Game. Book 4, Confronting The Hostile, was published in August 2017 along with The Hostile Series Box Set.

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.”

Remember, if you download the FREE Kindle of Holiday for The Hostile, you can also buy the audiobook version, wonderfully narrated by Alexander Doddy, for a fraction of the usual price. A great idea for those who sometimes prefer to use their ears rather than their eyes to enjoy a book. Each one of my audiobooks can be bought for a greatly reduced price when bought with the relevant Kindle. My Kindles are usually only £0.99, so it makes sense to buy the audiobook with the Kindle, rather than buying the audiobook at full price on its own.

11 of my 12 Kindle editions are only £0.99, or equivalent currencies, on Amazon, and are always free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers. The Kindle version of The Hostile Series Box Set is only £2.30 for all 4 books in The Hostile series.

Here are four of my latest Goodreads Giveaways

For the past couple of years, I’ve been offering a few of my paperbacks each month as Goodreads Giveaways. All readers need to do is enter the Giveaway to have a chance of winning a copy. I’ve written twelve books, so there’s always something different for you to select. I used to limit the entry solely to readers in Great Britain, but recently I’ve been offering Americans, Canadians, and Australians a chance to win one of my paperbacks, as well as Brits.

I only added my Living with Postcards paperback Giveaway today, so it’s showing on here as non-verified, but Goodreads will verify it in a day or two. This book, in particular, looks so much better in paperback than as a Kindle edition because it’s packed with full-colour illustrations of many of my postcards from my large collection. I’ve been collecting mostly fantasy, comic and novelty postcards since the 1970s and own over 2,000 of these beautiful, quirky, historical items. Living with Postcards is my only non-fiction book. My other eleven books are fiction. They are a mix of crime thrillers, paranormal, short stories, novels, and memoirs.

I’m currently enjoying writing books 13 and 14 simultaneously. One is another crime thriller, whose title I’m keeping under wraps. The other is book 5 of The Hostile series of paranormal crime thrillers.

 

If you enter any of my Goodreads Giveaways, Good luck! I hope you win.

The Kindle of POTHOLES AND MAGIC CARPETS is FREE on Amazon today, 26th September, and on 27th September

Potholes and Magic Carpets is a contemporary character-driven novel. It looks at the dramatic incidents, challenges, and temptations in the lives of four couples of varying ages, professions, and sexual persuasions who are all linked by blood or friendship. The negative, selfish, sometimes violent natures of several characters in the book wreak havoc on the innocent. A tale of not so simple folk. The page-turning action in Potholes and Magic Carpets takes place in rural Kent and London. It’s published on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions. An audiobook version, narrated by Tracey Norman, will be available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes in a couple of months.

 

“I absolutely love Ms. Mutter’s writing style. Her descriptions are captivating to me, as a lifelong fan of all things British, I enjoy her humour and the clarity with which she delivers her characters. I feel like I know them well by the time I’m well into each chapter. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talents.” “I sometimes find that when books have too many characters I don’t always care about them. It didn’t happen with this book. I really wanted to know more about every one of them.” “If you like complex characters and a strong story, you’ll like this book.”

The Kindle of Random Bullets is FREE on Amazon today, 14th September

After shooting and killing his nephew, a gunman runs amok in a London park. What drives Edward to commit such atrocities? Who will survive yet another of his moments of madness? Set in Jersey, Cornwall, London, Manchester, and places not of this world, Random Bullets is a contemporary crime thriller with a paranormal twist.

‘Action-packed, thought-provoking, a real ride. I couldn’t put it down,’ ‘crime with a twist,’ ‘An insightful look behind the many faces we wear, and how burning resentments can take you into madness and murder,’ ‘This is a very well thought out book.’ ‘Kinetic — really zips along at a pace. I was really drawn in.’ These are just a few of the reviews Random Bullets has received; 20+ 5-star reviews across all Amazon sites so far. Your review would also be much appreciated.

I was interviewed in February 2016 by two BBC Radio 4 producers as part of their Analysis programme on Inheritance. They’d heard that Random Bullets deals with the divisive subject of disinheritance and its aftermath, something I’ve experienced personally. Published in November 2015, Random Bullets is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions. An audiobook edition of Random Bullets is in production, narrated by Alexander Doddy. Audiobook versions of four of my other books are already available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes with four more in production.

4 audiobooks in production, 4 on sale

There are currently four of my audiobooks in production on ACX. They should all be joining the four audiobooks already on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes before Christmas. Two are being narrated by Alexander Doddy and two by Tracey Norman. I can’t wait to hear the finished results. I’ve produced the audiobook covers ahead of time and here they are (see above). The covers of the audiobooks already available are below. Here is the link to my audiobooks on Audible.com http://adbl.co/2sEnfTO but they are also available on Amazon and iTunes.

Now to carry on writing chapter 3 of book 5 of The Hostile series. It’ll be my thirteenth book.

Hello, one and all

I popped in here for a brief catch-up. After much messing around filling in tax return forms, marketing my books, and intense concentration editing another author’s book, I started writing Book 5 of The Hostile series today. It goes by the stunning title of Book 5 of The Hostile Series at present, but the final title will come to me eventually.
 
I was toying with the notion of writing an entirely different book, but a few readers have let it be known they are eager to read the next book in the series. I’m also eager to discover what happens next, so, Book 5 it is then. I have far too much fun writing this series to write anything else just yet.
 
The audiobook of Confronting The Hostile, narrated by Alexander Doddy, should be available sometime this Autumn. I know I shouldn’t really say this, being the author, but I can’t wait to listen to it because he brings my words to life in such an enjoyable way. He will be narrating Random Bullets audiobook once he’s finished narrating Confronting The Hostile. I keep him busy.
 
 
 
Another wonderful narrator, called Tracey Norman, is busy working on two of my books, firstly Potholes and Magic Carpets, then A Slice of The Seventies. The audiobook editions of these books should be available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes in a few months.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The audiobook of The Hostile Game has received no UK reviews on Audible.co.uk as yet, which is a shame. Mostly Americans ask for my promo codes; Books 2 and 3 in the series have received 4 5-star reviews each on Audible.com, which is encouraging. Still, it’s early days, as The Hostile Game audiobook has only been available for a few weeks.

An excerpt from Confronting The Hostilehttp://amzn.to/2usapMU

I published my 11th book on Amazon yesterday

Still on a high after publishing my 11th book, Confronting The Hostile, on Amazon yesterday. It is the 4th book in The Hostile series of contemporary paranormal crime thrillers. The first three books in this series are available in Kindle and paperback editions on Amazon. So far, only the Kindle of Confronting The Hostile is on Amazon, but the paperback version should be on there in a few days once it’s passed CreateSpace’s review process.

Audiobook versions of the first three books in The Hostile series are available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. http://adbl.co/2hNyxDM. I also intend to produce an audiobook version of Confronting The Hostile, narrated by Alexander Doddy. He made such a wonderful job of narrating Holiday for The Hostile and The Hostile Game that I’d be crazy not to hire him to narrate book four. I narrated the first book, The Hostile, but I’m too busy writing book twelve to spare the time to narrate Confronting The Hostile.

In Confronting The Hostile, a retired Irish superintendent and his former colleague, a handsome DCI from Liverpool, attempt to rid themselves and the world of their lethal tile masters. Will they succeed in reclaiming their freedom, or will the bizarre killing games continue? Set in Manchester, Liverpool, and Ireland.

Confronting The Hostile is coming soon!

I’ve been busy completing my latest book, Confronting The Hostile, book 4 of The Hostile series. I’ve just uploaded the MOBI and PDF files for Confronting The Hostile onto my Facebook Hostile series Launch team page for anyone in the team who’d like to read it to give me their valuable feedback. Writing Confronting The Hostile has been an even more enjoyable experience than writing the other three. I hope you’ll find reading it equally enjoyable.
 
I’ll delay publishing the Kindle and paperback for a couple of weeks to give anyone who’d like to read it and give me feedback enough time to do so. Once it’s published, I’ll be offering Confronting The Hostile for free for a few days on Amazon so that any reviews anyone in the team cares to write will be for a verified purchase. Reviews of any kind for this book, or any other of my books, will be greatly appreciated whenever they’re posted on Amazon and Goodreads. I know how busy everyone is, which is why I’m so grateful for any support you’d care to give to the launch of Confronting The Hostile. I’ve helped launch at least a dozen or so books for other authors and know that every bit of support is priceless. If anyone would like to join my Launch Team for The Hostile series, here is the link https://www.facebook.com/groups/1694776034176904/

The Kindle edition of A SLICE OF THE SEVENTIES is FREE on Amazon today, 8th August and on 9th August

A Slice of the Seventies is the first book in the Mug trilogy and tells the story of Jersey-born Mug, a troubled girl from a recently broken home. It covers her experiences as a teenager at the Isle of Wight Music Festival in 1970, the same year she follows a guru. The book tracks her tumultuous four years as an art student in Coventry, where vegetarian Mug finds herself living next door to an abattoir and a railway shunting yard with David, a fellow art student. 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. My loosely autobiographical book can be read as a standalone, without having to read the other two books in the trilogy, The Lying Scotsman, and Straws.

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.

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

Yesterday, I finished writing the first draft of book 4 in The Hostile series, Confronting The Hostile. It’s roughly 55,500 words in much the same vein as the first three books and is equally full of surprises. I’ve also changed the cover to be more in keeping with the other books.  I hope to later provide an audiobook of Confronting The Hostile, also narrated by Alexander Doddy.

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!
 

Oh, happy day!

Audiobooks of The Hostile series

I’m proud to announce the publication of the first three audiobook editions in my paranormal crime thriller series, The Hostile. I narrated the first book and Alexander Doddy brilliantly narrated books two and three. You really should hear Alexander’s amazing performance. I hope he’ll be free to narrate book four, Confronting The Hostile. I’m currently writing Chapter 28 of book four and aim to publish the Kindle and paperback of Confronting The Hostile by the end of 2017.

All three audiobooks are available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. If you buy, or have bought, the Kindle of The Hostile, you can download its much reduced priced audiobook on Amazon. The same will eventually be true of the other two Hostile series audiobooks on Amazon. They say it takes about a month after publication before Amazon offers an audiobook discount when the Kindle has been bought. As Holiday for The Hostile only went live on Audible on 26th June, the discount on Amazon should appear around the end of July. The Hostile Game audiobook should go live on Audible, Amazon and iTunes in a couple of weeks, so the Amazon discount should come into being by the end of August.

Authors using ACX have no say in the pricing of their audiobooks. I would have priced my audiobooks on Audible and Amazon at the lower price iTunes charge. I’ve often complained to them about the high prices of my audiobooks on Audible. This is why I welcome the offer of my audiobooks at a discounted price on Amazon when a Kindle is bought.

The Kindle of HER DEMONIC ANGEL is FREE on Amazon today, 7th July until 9th July

Her demonic Angel is my baker’s dozen of short stories. I wrote them in a variety of genres, so there should be something for everyone. Some tales are stranger than others, but all are different shades of dark. Despite its slightly suggestive title, Her demonic Angel is not erotica. To whet your appetite, here are the titles of some of my short stories: Mirror, mirror; The boy they called Dragon; The day nobody gave a damn; An email from Jane; Stuff; Getting rid of the enemy; Skin; Too beautiful; Philately will get you nowhere; In memoriam.

Big News

Thrilled to report the release of the audiobook edition of Holiday for The Hostile, narrated by the highly talented Alexander Doddy. I couldn’t be more pleased with his performance. He put his heart and soul into it. He even tackled the Irish and Scottish accents brilliantly when they cropped up in the story. Book 1, The Hostile, is already on Audible, Amazon and iTunes. As it was released before I’d heard of Alexander Doddy, I narrated it myself.
 
Holiday for The Hostile audiobook is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes, but if anyone wants an Audible promo code for it, private message me with your email address and I’ll email one to you. If you leave a review of the audiobook, I’d be forever grateful as it obviously has no ratings or reviews yet because it’s just been released.
 
Here is a link to the audiobook of Holiday for The Hostile on Audible.co.uk http://adbl.co/2sELKis, and on Audible.com http://adbl.co/2uhDMOd.
 
Alexander has also finished narrating Book 3, The Hostile Game. I finished listening to it today and he’s done another fantastic job. I’m so glad I selected him as narrator. The Hostile Game audiobook should be available on the same sites as books 1 and 2 in a couple of weeks or so.
 
I’m currently writing Chapter 26 of Book 4, Confronting The Hostile. When it’s finished and published in Kindle and paperback on Amazon, I’d also love Alexander to narrate the audiobook of Confronting The Hostile, if he’s not too busy. With his talent, he’s bound to be much in demand.
