The first novella in a brand new revenge quadriology.

They beat him.

They broke him.

They stabbed him.

They murdered him.

If they did that to your loved one, would you forgive them? Or would you get Square?

Tony Green was recently released having served a four-year prison sentence for murder. With the support of a loving fiancee he attempts to prevent the next generation from following in his own footsteps. But old habits die hard, and the allure of the underworld is hard to resist.

Although Tony may be paying back his debt to society, he is about to discover other debts are not so easily repaid.

From the writer who brought you the Blood Memory series and Z-Minus comes this tale of revenge, retribution and regret. If you were denied justice would you dispense your own?

SQUARE. Let redemption begin.

Interview with the Author

Q - So, what makes the Square series so special?

A - At the time I wrote Square, every week there seemed to be a story in the news about some young hooligan having murdered an innocent bystander, or someone who stood up to bullies but got punished for it. Often the deaths were by accident, or a sudden release of anger in a fit of rage. The murderers were invariably sent to prison for unbelievably short terms.

Seeing that made me angry, so I began to write a story. But as I kept writing, and the characters kept speaking to me, I realised the murderers themselves were also victims - if not of a crime, then of society. At its heart, Square is about change and redemption, and explores the question that if we are denied justice, is it right that we seek out our own?

The story became a psychological suspense/thriller with a sense of mystery and a series of twists that keep the reader guessing.

Q - What made you decide to give the first book away free?

A - I wanted to gift a free book to everyone who enjoys the horror genre. I'm a new writer and it's great knowing that someone out there is reading and enjoying my novel. There's no greater feeling than that.

By the way, there's also a special free gift at the end of the free book for mystery fans... :)

Q - Can readers get the whole series in one go?

A - Of course. I've bundled all the episodes up into one complete season at a hugely discounted rate here: http://www.amazon.com/Square-Mystery-Suspense-Complete-Season-ebook/dp/B00NA8Q0PI

I have also written many other books. Readers can check them out at my author profile on Amazon.

The Child of Mystery (Chains of Darkness Book 1)



The clock is ticking, and time is running out...NOT ALL THINGS BOUND IN CHAINS SHOULD BE FREEDTime for Melinda is fast running out. Time for her to make her escape. And time to make a daring rescue.

From the Publisher that brought you popular short story series Witching Call, Hostile Hearts, Earthbound Angels, The January Morrison Files Psychic Series, Ralph's Gift, Children of Time, Chains of Darkness, Tropical Storms and Friend Zone...

The only thing fifteen-year-old Melinda has been thinking about ever since she found out that she was betrothed to a man twice her age was how to escape the madness of the cult she had been trapped in. But escape seems easier said than done, especially since Melinda is being kept under the watchful eyes of her Uncle, an Aunt who never seems to sleep, and the Elders.

Melinda has the unique ability to see things no one can, like Angels and, once one Halloween, a demon. Her power also allows her to see a boy named Caleb, who isn't really a boy but has the fading aura of an Angel, get captured by the Elders. Kept in chains and tortured, Caleb's agonizing cries are a constant reminder of why she must get as far away from the cult as she can. She must escape, and soon, but not without trying to rescue Caleb.

Does Melinda have the power to not only save herself, but to save Caleb? And if she can save him, has she saved an angel... or a demon?

EXCERPT"What's with the angel, anyway?" Gabe asks, watching her as she smooths the jagged fringe of her hair.

"You can see them, too?" That's the other reason she likes him so much. When she told him that she could see them, he didn't automatically say that she was crazy, like so many other people did. He merely nodded, and listened. He didn't believe her, not then. But he does now.

"No, but I kinda assumed, after what happened last night," he says, leaving the sentence unfinished. He leaves the bathroom . She keeps snipping, concentrating on keeping her hand steady.

"Um, Melinda?"

"Yeah?"

"Where is he?"

She feels a lump form in her throat, and fights back a wave of nausea as she goes to confirm what she's inexplicably terrified about: the bed where Caleb was curled up on is empty. The silvery aura, the wall of flames--she doesn't exactly believe in being able to see the future, but right now, she has a very bad feeling that something terrible is going to happen.

Joe Coffin Season One Episode One (A Vampire Suspense and Gory Horror Series: Episode 1 Book 0)

". . .delivers gore, scares, pathos, and even some laughs in a bloody bundle that is much greater than the sum of its parts."

-David Dubrow, Gingernuts of Horror

"This was genuinely the best read I've had in a long time and I cannot wait for more from Joe Coffin!"

-Alli, Amazon review.

Get ready. Joe Coffin is on his way. And he's mad as hell.

Joe Coffin is fresh out of jail, but going straight is the last thing on his mind. The sickos who murdered his wife and child are still out there, and he's going to get revenge.

The problem is, Joe Coffin is in much deeper than he realises, and his wife might not be as dead as he believes.

Violent, gory, profane and explicit, Joe Coffin is for mature readers only.

Interview with the author:

Q - So, what makes the Joe Coffin series special?

A - A few different things, really. I love vampires but I'm not interested in the sparkly romantic types crowding the bookshelves at the moment. In writing Joe Coffin I wanted to go back to the idea that a vampire novel should be full of gory horror, and that the vampires would be nasty and almost indestructible. But I also love British crime movies, and I thought why not pit my vampires against a British gang and throw in a gutsy female journalist as well, with a sprinkling of humour amongst the brutal action.

So yes, the Joe Coffin books are a mix of genres. The other thing to bear in mind is that they are written in episodic format, much like a TV series. That way they remain tightly plotted and fast paced.

Overall, the Joe Coffin series is written to keep you turning the pages - and I've made sure there's never a dull moment.

Q - What's with this Season One in the title?

A - Again, it's the TV series format. I love Netflix and Amazon Video, and I binge watch my TV shows now, instead of how I used to watch them, one episode a week. I wanted to reflect that idea in the books, and I hope you will want to binge read all four episodes in each season of Joe Coffin.

Q - What order should I read the books in?

A - You need to start with Season One and work your way through. If you don't start at the beginning you won't have a clue what's happening in the later books, as the story is tightly tied in together and progresses as you read on.

Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?

A - If you like modern horror, or vampire novels, I think you will like this series of books. Even if you're on the fence about the horror aspect, but enjoy violent crime fiction, I think you may well love these books. And they are lightning fast, with smart dialogue and great characters, and a hero you will love in mob henchman Joe Coffin.
