The Bastard Princess (The Elizabeth of England Chronicles Book 1) by G. Lawrence

February, 1603.
In Richmond Palace, London, the last Queen of the Tudor dynasty, Elizabeth I, is dying.

As Death hovers at her elbow, waiting for her to obey his call, the aged Queen looks back on her life, and on the trials, victories and sorrows which brought her eventually, to the throne of England. Not quite three years old when her mother, the notorious Anne Boleyn, was arrested and executed on charges of adultery and treason, Elizabeth became a true princess of the Tudor era, in a time when the balance of power, politics and passion were fragile… and the cost of failure was death. Her childhood and teenage years were fraught with danger as competing factions and ideologies sought to undermine and destroy her in the bid for power at the Tudor court.

This is the story of Elizabeth Tudor, last daughter of Henry VIII, and her journey to the throne of England. Told from her own mouth… the tale of the Bastard Princess, who would, one day, become England’s greatest Queen.

Hamlet – Prince of Denmark (Wisehouse Classics Edition) by William Shakespeare

The Analects (literally: “Edited Conversations”), also known as the Analects of Confucius, is a collection of sayings and ideas attributed to the Chinese philosopher Confucius and his contemporaries, traditionally believed to have been compiled and written by Confucius’ followers. It is believed to have been written during the Warring States period (475 BC–221 BC), and it achieved its final form during the mid-Han dynasty (206 BC–220 AD). By the early Han dynasty the Analects was considered merely a “commentary” on the Five Classics, but the status of the Analects grew to be one of the central texts of Confucianism by the end of that dynasty.During the late Song dynasty (960-1279) the importance of the Analects as a philosophy work was raised above that of the older Five Classics, and it was recognized as one of the “Four Books”. The Analects has been one of the most widely read and studied books in China for the last 2,000 years, and continues to have a substantial influence on Chinese and East Asian thought and values today. They were very important for Confucianism and China’s overall morals.

FRY (The McBride Vendetta Psychological Thrillers Book 1) by Lorna Dounaeva

IndieReader.com’s Best Indie Books of 2013

‘A Breakneck Roller Coaster Ride’

She acts like she’s your new best friend, but is she really a deadly enemy?
When Isabel Anderson nearly runs over mysterious Alicia McBride, she is ridden with guilt. She helps Alicia get a job at the supermarket where she works, and soon, Alicia is acting like her new best friend. But then strange fires start to break out all over the small seaside town of Queensbeach, including at the caravan park where Alicia is staying. Isabel suspects Alicia knows more than she’s letting on and grows increasingly nervous when her friend Deacon invites Alicia to stay with him. But it’s Isabel the police suspect.

Determined to confront Alicia, Isabel bursts into her room and sees the word ‘FRY’ branded across her back in capital letters. From then on, she sees the word “FRY’ everywhere she goes: in graffiti, on toilet walls, even on car registration plates. Then her beloved cat, Fluffy, disappears and Isabel is convinced Alicia is behind it. She puts up posters all over her neighbourhood, but as fast as she puts them up, someone takes them down. Soon, a whole spate of fires is breaking out and Isabel must stay one step ahead of the flames and the police. In order to survive, she must question her own innocence, her sanity and the very fabric of her morality. Can she win back Deacon? And will she ever find Fluffy?

FRY is a very British fast-paced psychological thriller.

The Characters
Red-haired Isabel Anderson lives on a diet of tea and takeaways. She’s a junior manager at her local supermarket but she lacks ambition and her greatest passion in life is for shopping. She drinks too much, smokes too much and spends too much. She is also fiercely independent and lives alone with only her cat, Fluffy for company.

Deacon Frost is a good-natured but slightly opinionated doctor. He is well-built and used to work as a bouncer. He now lives in a beautiful beach house overlooking the sea. He ought to have everything, but he’s been single for many years.

Alicia McBride is new in town and dresses like a bedraggled orphan. She has an aura of wide-eyed innocence, but does something darker lurk beneath? What brings her to Queensbeach? And why now?

The Setting
Queensbeach is a fictional English seaside town, out of season. With all the tourists gone for winter, it feels a bit like a ghost town. The sky is almost permanently grey, making it the perfect setting for a chilling psychological thriller.

The style
FRY is a psychological thriller written in a conversational British style. If you like female led crime thrillers, then this is book is for you. It has romance, but there is also an intriguing mystery that will keep you guessing right up until the very last page.

Top of the free kindle download charts
At its launch, FRY was number one for free English language psychological thrillers on both Amazon Canada and Amazon Germany.

Joe Coffin Season One Episode One (A Vampire Suspense and British Gangster Series Book 1) by Ken Preston

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 realizes, and his wife might not be as dead as he believes.

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

Praise for Joe Coffin
A fast paced, gripping, story line makes this book a real page turner.

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

There’s so much crap out there that it’s sometimes difficult to find the diamonds in the muck. Ken Preston’s Joe Coffin shines bright and bloody, and I’m glad to recommend it.

Written in serial form, there are four episodes in Season One, each available individually or as a complete set at a significant price saving.
