Hello my Freaky Darlings,
For Immediate Release:
Coming this September from Fox Spirit Books
Burning by Joan De La Haye
Cover Art by Dave Johnson
From the author of psychological horror Shadows, taut murder mystery Requiem in E Sharp and the post-apocalyptic Oasis, Burning is a fiery tale of magic and dark desire.
Marcie Grove is a lonely witch. After a full moon ritual she decides to do something about the abysmal state of her love life. Making use of a powerful spell to cure her sad state of affairs, she puts her own life, as well as her coven, in danger when her apparent success brings forth a dark power with explosive and deadly results.
‘This is not the first time I’ve read a book by Joan De La Haye and although she might not be a writer that everyone is familiar with, I am hopeful that it will change soon.’ – Killer Aphrodite on ‘Requiem’
King Wolf & Other Stories by Steven Savile
Cover art by Ben Baldwin
Steven Savile has written for Doctor Who, Torchwood, Primeval, Stargate, Warhammer, and other popular game and comic worlds. His novels have been published in eight languages to date and have sold over half a million copies worldwide. He has won multiple awards for both original and tie-in fiction.
The death of a beloved children’s writer, Hoke Berglund, draws Jon Sieber into a world he cannot hope to understand – a world filled with Hoke’s creations, including the vile Mr. Self Affliction who is the cruel master of this place. In a landscape where angels are beautiful women and the by-blows of nightmares people the mythical Forgetting Wood, Jon, heir apparent to all that Hoke created, falls for Kristen, the writer’s daughter, but cannot let her secret remain secret.
“If there are secrets, as in the Grimm’s fairy tale nightmare of “The Fragrance of You,” there may well be good reasons that such things are hidden. In some cases, the wistful protagonist learns, you need to just take such gifts on faith; it isn’t necessary to understand everything around us. Some things we can just be grateful for, and enjoy as long as they last.” SF Site
LAUNCHING AT FANTASYCON 2014
11 am Saturday 6th September
Breed by K T Davies
Cover Art by Ewan Davies
A new novel from K T Davies historical martial artist, adventurer and author of the superb novel ‘The Red Knight’.
After Breed, a Guild Blade of small renown, is chased by a dragon, tricked by a demon, almost killed by a psychopathic gang boss and hunted by a ferocious spider-like arrachid assassin life really takes a turn for the worst.
Sentenced to five years bonded servitude to a one-handed priest magician, Breed must find the hammer of the ancient hero known only as the Hammer of the North within a year and a day… or else. And so, with only a drug-addicted vagrant, a rat-faced child, and a timid priest for back up, Breed sets out for the mighty city of Valen and the tomb of the Hammer.
What could possibly go wrong?
I’ll give you a clue.
“This is a smashing debut, and a very refreshing and exciting read. Davies is one to look out for, and I wait with interest to see what she does next.” – Starburst on The Red Knight
