Plead Insanity (Collision Of Worlds)
by Sandra Giles
5.0 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Contemporary Fantasy

Jared’s unlike any twenty-one year old guy he knows, but then that could be down to his determination to keep from associating with the human population. Not that he doesn’t count himself among humans, no. He’s completely unaware of what he is. To him the term ‘vampire’ is purely fictional, and he really would like to keep it that way. But it’s hard to hide from yourself, especially when you’re fighting a lust that has a tendency of cropping up at the most inconvenient times.
Things become hard for Jared when a murder is committed right under his inhumanly-sensitive nose. He doesn’t witness the murder, but plenty of people believe that he did, because he’s the one who walks in just after the killing has taken place. And if that’s not bad enough, this happens to be the first time that he’s faced with fresh blood. He may be able to resist feasting on hidden blood, but this?

This is book one in the series; Collision Of Worlds.

The second book, Minority Rules, is available to download now. Eternal Sentence will be out September 30th 2012.

Warning: unsuitable for young readers.

by Tim Greaton
4.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Contemporary Fantasy

In "The Santa Shop" he showed us how a raw emotional story can bring readers to a better place. In the epic and powerful "Under-Heaven" he has done it again...times three.

Traumatized by the violent murders of his parents and himself, nine-year-old Nate wakes in a version of Purgatory. With the help of dead relatives from above and below, he struggles to find a way to move on. Meanwhile back on Earth, Nate's sole surviving sister seems to have been imprinted with darkness because time and again she finds herself involved with violent men and dangerous situations. When mobsters follow her and her latest boyfriend down a dead end dirt road, it doesn't seem likely that anyone will escape. The final player in this emotional opus is five-year-old Jesse who places his hope and faith in his drug-addicted father. It isn't until his kidnapping from his Boston school that the pain really begins.

Tim Greaton's "Under Heaven" will pull you out of your world and leave you gasping for breath in his, and the surprising culmination of this entwining story will stay with you for a lifetime. One reviewer says, "Like walking the edge of a cliff that provides a breathtaking view, this book is both scary and beautiful." While another reviewer declares, "Tim Greaton's fans will follow him to Hell in gasoline raincoats...."

You're invited to find out why.
