New release: epic arthurian fantasy romance

The epic tale of a woman who will use all her power to protect her son and make him King.

This collection of three books tells the story of King Arthur’s mother, Igraine, the conflict over the future king’s destiny between her and Merlin, and the struggle within a post-Roman Britain to mix past with present, Christianity with paganism, and magic with politics. Igraine is no passive bystander at court but a powerful political player, a wise and influential queen who reflects the strength and tenacity of the women of ancient Britain. Igraine's life has never before been told in detail. This is her story.

The Cornish Princess
The King of Britain is dead, without a male heir. The politics of her country never mattered much to Igraine, until now, when they threatened to rob her of her home. When the witch Merlin tells her destiny will make her queen, a defiant Igraine refuses an offer of marriage from Uther, a rough soldier and unlikely pretender for the throne, but destiny cannot be avoided and the harder she fights it, the more brutal it will be when it comes.

The Prisoner Queen
Freshly widowed, with a child she can’t possibly have in safety and two grieving daughters, Igraine must negotiate the dangerous politics of a court in turmoil, unsure of if she is its new queen or a prisoner. With Uther’s promises not yet kept, and him slipping further under Merlin’s control, to protect her unborn child, her daughters and the home she has left behind, Igraine is forced to make deals with friends she knows are not to be trusted.

Mother of the King
With her son lost and Merlin back at court, Igraine fights for control of the kingdom. Uther is broken by grief, weakening and dying, and Igraine is locked in a conflict with the wizard over the destiny of her son. In this battle there can be only one survivor, and Igraine has not survived the dangers of court to give up now.

If you enjoy epic fantasy adventures like Game of Thrones, with a romantic twist, this book is for you.
Also available as three separate titles on Kindle. Coming soon in paperback.

New crime fiction release on Kindle.

BLONDE, a murder mystery by Stan Jackson. 
Just 99p/ 99cents for launch!
Under suspicion following his girlfriend’s murder, a man turns private investigator to uncover her real killer...

It was a blossoming romance, cut short by a cruel murder. Perry Webster, a university lecturer at York University, is distraught at his young love’s death. But when the police start to suspect he was the culprit, his world is turned upside down.

Working in the local bar, his girlfriend was well-known and liked by many. Who could have killed her? Webster begins questioning the pub locals, to no avail. Yet his actions are carefully followed by the police, and several times he is brought in for questioning.

Just when the trail is going cold, Webster stumbles on a clue. This takes him down a dangerous path, confronting important people in political circles and dangerous criminals in the underworld. It will take all of Webster’s wit and learning to see through the lies that surround his girlfriend’s death.

But, like Webster, the reader is in for a surprise when the true identity of the killer is revealed. Having kicked a hornet’s nest it may transpire that they are much closer to home than he first thought. Can he prove his case and clear his name?

BLONDE is the first in a series of murder mysteries with Perry Webster as private investigator. Look out for BRUNETTE and RAVEN, coming soon.

BLONDE will appeal to fans of traditional whodunnits like the murder mysteries of Agatha Christie and the detective fiction of G K Chesterton. The modern twist will be enjoyed by fans of Ian Rankin, Stuart McBride and Val McDermid.

NEW RELEASE: Irish crime fiction on Kindle.

MURDER ON THE OLD BOG ROAD by David Pearson

Just 99p/99c for launch!

A woman is found dead in a ditch. As the list of suspects grows, a town’s dirty secrets are revealed.

It’s a cold winter evening and rain is sweeping in from the Atlantic when a young woman, having braved the weather to visit her sick mother in a remote part of Ireland , comes across an obstacle in the road. She clears the highway of stones from a damaged bridge only to see the body of a woman in a ditch. With no phone reception, she travels to the nearest police station to report what she has found.

The local Garda waste no time in attending the scene of the crime. The woman is clearly dead, but it needs proper forensics to establish if foul play was the cause. In the meantime, is it not possible that the woman driver was in fact the culprit? She is clearly not telling the whole truth.

A game of cat and mouse ensues when the inquiry is upgraded to a murder investigation. The trouble is, when the victim is recognised as a sex worker, there is no shortage of possible suspects. And few of them, if any, are willing to tell the truth to the police. It will take all of Galway detectives Hays and Lyons’ experience to cut through the web of lies and identify the killer in their midst.

MURDER ON THE OLD BOG ROAD is the first in a series of atmospheric crime fiction titles featuring Detective Inspector Mick Hays and Detective Sergeant Maureen Lyons. The second book, UNEQUAL SHARES, will be released in April, 2018. MURDER ON THE OLD BOG ROAD will appeal to fans of Val McDermid, Stuart McBride and Pete Brassett.
