New Extracts: The Wrong Goodbye, Crown Thief, The Knights of Breton Court, The Dead of WinterBy
Our October new releases will be unleashed on the world in just a couple of weeks’ time. Soon you’ll be able to head on down to your favourite bookstore (or make with the clicking on your favourite online retailer’s website) and grab a copy of The Wrong Goodbye by Chris F. Holm, Crown Thief by David Tallerman and the three-volume omnibus edition of The Knights of Breton Court by Maurice Broaddus. Once you have them safely in-hand (or on-reader) you can scamper off to your reading-cave and devour them without pause, snarling like a cornered wolverine at anyone who dares to disturb your literary reverie.
A few scant weeks later, you’ll no doubt feel the uncontrollable urge to repeat the process all over again, when our November book release – The Dead of Winter, the debut horror/western novel by new talent Lee Collins – hits the shelves.
In the meantime, here are four sets of sample chapters to help whip you into a frenzy of anticipation. Feel free to share them via your social media channel of choice, or embed the widgets on your own blog or website. Just click the relevant links to Issuu.com and then either the ‘Share’ or ‘Embed’ buttons, as required.
The Wrong Goodbye
by Chris F. Holm
The Collector, book two (sequel to Dead Harvest)
Meet Sam Thornton, Collector of Souls.
Because of his efforts to avert the Apocalypse, Sam Thornton has been given a second chance – provided he can stick to the straight-and-narrow.
Which sounds all well and good, but when the soul Sam’s sent to collect goes missing, Sam finds himself off the straight-and-narrow pretty quick.
by David Tallerman
The Tales of Easie Damasco, book two (sequel to Giant Thief)
From the Tales of Easie Damasco…
Meet Easie Damasco: Thief, swindler and lately, reluctant hero.
But whatever good intentions Damasco may have are about to be tested to their limits, as the most valuable – and dangerous – object in the land comes within his light-fingered grasp. Add in some suicidally stubborn giants, an old enemy with dreams of empire and the deadliest killers in two kingdoms on his heels, and Damasco’s chances of staying honest – or even just surviving – are getting slimmer by the hour.
The Knights of Breton Court (omnibus)
by Maurice Broaddus
The Wire meets Excalibur in this stunning urban fantasy.
From the drug gangs of downtown Indianapolis, the one true king will arise.
The King Arthur myth gets dramatically retold through the eyes of street hustler King, as he tries to unite the crack dealers, gangbangers and the monsters lurking within them to do the right thing.
The Dead of Winter
by Lee Collins
