Something In The City – an exclusive free book
Love a bargain? Get Something In The City, an e-book of short stories, FREE when you sign up for my newsletter. (You’ll receive short, interesting updates once or twice a month, and you can unsubscribe at any time.) Not every tale is a crime story – there’s a dash of romance and horror too – but they’re all a great read. The book’s also a whistle-stop tour around England, with settings in sleepy Somerset as well as the busy cities of London, Birmingham and Bristol. These are places I know well, and it’s no accident that they also pop up in my full-length crime thrillers.
You’ll also like “5 minute crime thriller” The Gap, available here for free, especially if you’re short of time. It’s a taster for my Trail series of crime thrillers (which you can order from bookshops or Amazon*. You can also download samples from Amazon* to try before you buy).
Even shorter is The Harbour Festival, a piece of flash fiction performed at a Bristol Harbourside Story Walk on National Flash Fiction Day 2016.
Take a trip back in time
I can’t resist giving you Mr Fripp Takes a Trip, which I loved writing because it draws heavily on my youthful experiences of office life and getting smashed with colleagues on Friday night. I can still picture the concrete-clad wine bar where the action takes place. This isn’t a crime story, just a fast, fun read with a few laughs thrown in.
Finally, although Christmas comes but once a year, Festive Treats* is the Christmas short story collection that just keeps giving, because it’s free on Amazon*. Featuring a selection of sparkling tales from superb British writers, you’ll find I’ve contributed a festive ghost story that’s more heart-warming than chilling.
*I’ve given Amazon UK links above, but all books are available on other Amazon sites too.
