I am truly astonished, and not a little disappointed, to be honest. I have received a total of ONE submission for this week’s Book Promo Day! Given that this is free advertising, I really don’t understand why authors don’t leap at the opportunity. In future, if I receive anything less than three submissions, the event simply won’t happen that week. Any that have been received will be carried over until such time as three or more entries will be possible.
So as not to disappoint Alex Shaw on this occasion, I have added two books myself! I believe that these will be of interest and I hope that you will understand why I’ve done this.
Cold Black by Alex Shaw
Former SAS trooper Aidan Snow returns in the thrilling follow up to the Kindle bestseller ‘Hetman’.
Now an MI6 operative, Snow must locate and rescue an old SAS colleague before an Al-Qaeda splinter cell can carry out acts of unprecedented horror. But who is covertly funding these new attacks and why?
Veteran SAS trooper, Paddy Fox has lost his job, his wife and his temper. Whilst bitterly job hunting, Fox witnesses a car crash and finds himself rescuing a kidnapped Saudi Royal. Persuaded by MI6 to accept a job as security adviser in Saudi Arabia, Fox travels to Riyadh.
In Kyiv, a director of the Belorussian KGB is gunned down whilst trying to pass shocking intelligence to his counterpart in the Ukrainian SBU. Intelligence, which if verified, sets out plans to commit international acts of terror.
In Saudi Arabia, an entire British Trade mission is taken hostage by a new, highly trained, group aligned to Al-Qaeda. But who is covertly funding this new insurgency and why?
An International Conspiracy
Former SAS Trooper turned MI6 operative, Aidan Snow is caught in a maelstrom involving East, West and Middle East which endangers the world’s supply of oil.
Shade of Evil (Being Part 1 of G1: The Guardians) by Steve K Smy
The 2nd edition with a dramatic new cover, with an illustration by Chris Graham. Some fundamental changes have been made to the novelette’s story, particularly in respect of the Guardians.
A simple man bears a terrible burden, unknowing. Now, that burden is killing him, seeking freedom from his exhausted hulk. Freedom to satisfy its evil hunger. And its food is Humans!
A darkness dwelt there, a vile miasma of misery that gnawed at the very soul of the man. It had been there for years, growing like some parasite, growing bloated with every bit of melancholy that was sucked from him. Worse, it was taking on a life of its own, a substance that should not exist. And the man was becoming something less, something hollow.
Yule Pause and Frosty Claus (The Owl Wood Publications) by Ian Hutson
Yule pause and Frosty Claus is the second of The Owl Wood Publications and tells the story of two dogs, Pipsqueak and Toby, an owl who’s a hit-man left over from the Cold War, four chickens of dubious IQ, several of the bravest pheasant you’ll ever meet – and a monastery populated by little rat monks with little rat tonsures and little rat sandals. Father Christmas gets his just deserts and the rats get the Harrods Christmas Hamper. All is well that ends well, and this all ends well.
No sex, very little violence and none of that “Hollywood style” and only a hint of the mildest of everyday English gentlefolk cussing.
15,000 words or thereabouts allowing for the cold. More words than you could shake a stick at.
The Owl Wood is a real-life tiny patch of woodland set aside in Lincolnshire, England, for owls to nest and do owlish things. Since the miserable little souls have steadfastly refused to nest for the past five years I rather thought I ought to make up some action instead. Blathering nonsense, but fun.
Why not have a look at the others in the series too while you’re at it? There are sheep in the next one. Sheep I tell you, lovely sheeeeeeep.
