Birth Of The Mortokai

Birth_of_The_Mortokai

Daniel Welsh was born different—and to Daniel, to be different means to be alone. But what if he’s wrong?

Born an albino with a photographic memory, Daniel Welsh never expected to fit in. Yet, when he is approached by Trinity—a young girl who definitely isn’t human—she reveals a whole new world where he might just belong. Ariest is a place where his features aren’t a disability or the mark of a freak, but rather a trait of powerful mages born of human-faerie unions. His father is a renowned war hero and swordsman, his mother is a human doctor, and that makes him a powerful mage that’ll tip the scales. Magic is real—and so is the threat it brings.

Trinity and her father, a battle mage, aren’t the only ones to have discovered Daniel and his gifts hidden in the human realm.

The Shade have awakened.

Enemies to the fae realm long thought dead have been lying in wait for their moment to strike. Young mages like Daniel are the perfect morsel for their starving appetites and they start their killing spree without delay with the nearest unsuspecting mage boy. Daniel cannot sit idly by while monsters take innocent lives, so he will embrace a destiny he is only just beginning to understand… even if it means losing a life that’s finally worth living.

Birth of the Mortokai is a young adult coming of age fantasy adventure novel. Trigger warning: this novel contains descriptions of albinism, a real genetic disorder that affects 1/17,000 persons worldwide per year.

Scouse Gotic

Scouse Gothic Cover

Melville wakes with a pounding headache – there had been too many hangovers recently, but this felt different. What had he been drinking last night? Then he remembered – it was blood.

Enter the bizarre world of Scouse Gothic where a reluctant vampire mourns a lost love and his past lives, where a retired ‘hitman’ plans one more killing and dreams of food, and a mother sets out to avenge her son’s murder, and , meanwhile, a grieving husband is visited by an angry angel.

Set in present day Liverpool, vampires and mortals co-exist, unaware of each other’s secrets and that their past and present are inextricably linked.

But as their lives converge, who will be expected to atone for past sins?

Scouse - xSGrNZmp

 

 Ian was born and bred in Liverpool but left for university in the 1980’s when the city appeared to be in a terminal decline. After qualifying he worked in London and Essex before finally settling in Shropshire with his wife and daughter.

However a set of circumstances meant that he returned to live in the city once more. What he found was a modern vibrant city. The derelict buildings from his youth had been restored and repurposed. A dock was now a tourist attraction, a church was now a night club, a gaol now a hotel.

It was then that he had the idea for Melville a vampire who had known the city in its prime and had now returned to it. Initially the story of Melville was written as a short story, but the more Ian explored the city the more he realised there were many more tales to tell than just Melville’s. That was when the idea for Scouse Gothic was born.

The first book ‘A Pool of Life ..and Death’ , was very well received and has now been followed by a further two books. Ian continues to spend his time between Liverpool and Shropshire and is currently working on two further projects.

Rosebrook Chronicles: The Hidden Stories

Rosebrook cover-RC-actual

This series of interwoven stories follows the lives of three abused teenagers, desperate to battle past traumas, pursue their dreams, find love and re-establish broken family ties. 

London 1960. Robin is hypnotised by a dazzling moon and it sets him on a quest to seek a better life. Fearful of his future, he puts his trust in the wrong person, clueless of the trap he is falling into.

Dublin 1968. Two Irish orphans are separated by the Church. Six year old Bess panics at the thought of being sent to London. An English family want to adopt her but if only it didn’t mean abandoning her elder brother…
Peter meanwhile, has never forgotten her. Fighting to survive in a brutal orphanage, he risks a dangerous escape to reach the mainland and with the law on his tail, he heads for the Capital to find her.

It is not until the 1970s, the lives of the characters intersect. Struggling to cope in a harsh world, how do their experiences shape them into the adults they become and who among them will be believed?

One politician vows to introduce reforms to protect children. But when his only son is bullied at school, alleged to have committed suicide, he knows there is a lot more tunnelling to do if he is to unearth the evil embedded in society.

With snippets of social history from the 70s to the 90s, this book explores the hidden lives of three ordinary citizens.

These victims never had a voice. 
I wrote this book in order to give them one.

There is even a Book Trailer

Rosebrook Helen-Christmas-2018

 

Helen J. Christmas lives on the south coast with her husband. With a love of writing since childhood, she wrote her decade spanning thriller series, Same Face Different Place, Between 2011 and 2017. This five-book mystery suspense series explores British culture and social history from the 70s to the 90s.

In 2018 she completed Rosebrook Chronicles (The Hidden Stories), a unique novel which gives extra background information to her series. The 16th Century cottage in which Helen lives with her husband (restored in 1991) provides endless inspiration for writing, something she fits around her family and social life. Helen is a self employed web designer and works from home with her husband, Peter, and she enjoys blogging, country walks, photography and cookery.

Thank you Helen, I look forward to reading more from you.

IWFH_cover_web

A bachelor party on a cruise ship. What could go wrong?

When private detective Francie is hired to spy on a groom-to-be as he and his bachelor party set sail for the Caribbean, she thinks she’s landed herself a week of paid vacation. Between lounging in the sun and sipping margaritas, she just needs to–best case scenario–report back that he’s on the up and up, or–the unfortunate, more likely scenario–snap a few photos of her target in compromising positions, buy a box of sympathy chocolates for her client, and then collect her pay along with a nice golden suntan.

Blame it on the island breezes or the alcohol, but within hours of setting sail, Francie’s leisurely vacation gets complicated when she starts making careless mistakes. Like accidentally becoming friends with the groom and falling for his best man.

Can she get herself and her mission back on track, or has she blown her cover and possibly even her career?

Murderland By Pamela Murray @Bloodhoundbook #GuestPost

Murderland By Pamela Murray @Bloodhoundbook #GuestPost

Murderland

MURDERLAND FINAL

When DI Joe Burton and DS Sally Fielding are called to investigate a suspicious death in a care home, it is just the start of their problems.

As further bodies are discovered, with playing cards placed beside their bodies, the Manchester police realise they have their work cut out.

With the press closing in on the case, a criminal profiler is called in to help work out what the killer’s motive is.

With the clock ticking and more victims uncovered, Fielding and Burton must race to track down a twisted killer before it’s too late.

But could the killer be closer to home than anyone ever imagined?

Below Pamela tells us all about herself and her novel Murderland.

20190126_181846

I am from the North East of England and have spent most of my life living in Boldon, a semi-rural village mid-way between Newcastle, Sunderland, and the coastal town of South Shields. The first time I saw my name on a book was when I was 11, but this was not from me being published at such a young age. Everyone moving on from Junior School was presented with a book, and upon opening it there was a label inside which had our name written on it.  I remember being thrilled to see my name in print, as it were.

I began writing in my teens, when my school friend and I used to write stories for one another. The writing continued on and off over the years, but was only reignited within the last decade when the same school friend introduced me to the local writers group she was in.

I had intended to enter journalism after leaving school but found myself going to work in a public library instead, so there’s always been more than a passing interest in books, writing, and literature.

Prior to writing my first novel, Murderland, I hadn’t really written anything for 4 years. In 2014 I  submitted a children’s story as an entry into a Scottish publisher’s annual writing competition.  I loved the story but, sadly, it wasn’t shortlisted and I think this put me off writing for some time.  However, I was tempted to try and write again last year after being made aware of a short story competition run by my local library.  The person who informed me of this was, like myself, a former member of South Shields Writers’ Circle and fellow Bloodhound Books author, AM Peacock.  I was surprised yet delighted to find that I could write again after such a long time away from it, but when finished I found that I had an idea in my head for a crime novel.  By the end of October 2018 I began Murder land, completing it by the end of December.  I’d had an idea for a prequel, so when Murderland was accepted for publication I’d already started work on that.  Bloodline, my second novel, comes out in September, 2019, and I am currently working on a third.  Although each are standalone, they do form part of what has become a DI Joe Burton and DS Sally Fielding trilogy.

When I get an idea for a story I do write the basics of it down, but I mostly start off writing and see where it goes from there.  I think sometimes that I must write the way a person reads a story, not knowing what’s coming next as it’s often a surprise even to me how way the story turns out!  By doing it this way, it seems to add to the excitement of it all.  I also write in a visual way, in that I picture in my mind the action taking place as to get a feel for it and to try to describe what I see as it happens.  I don’t base characters on anyone I know, but as the writing has continued I think that there’s a lot of myself in Sally Fielding.

When not writing, I am passionate about Cinema as I love to be taken on a visual journey and to become completely immersed in a story.  My favourite type of genre is Science Fiction/Fantasy, especially anything that is paradoxical or to do with time travel – thank you HG Wells for “The Time Machine”.  For the same reason I love to listen to audiobooks – or perhaps I simply like the effortlessness of someone reading me a story or showing me moving pictures on a large screen as all I have to do is listen or watch!

I am also passionate about my three beautiful grandchildren, and spend as much time with them as possible.

I have also appeared on TV as a Supporting Artiste in two episodes of the hit crime series “Vera”, and can confirm that the making of a television programme is definitely not as glamorous as people think, but it’s certainly interesting on many levels!

My favourite authors are Kathy Reichs and Ellery Queen, and I think that I must have read every book they’ve ever written – and then re-read them!

Thank you Pamela, I look forward to reading more from you.
