Note: The fine authors who so generously donated books would greatly appreciate a review, if you win, on your blog and/or on Goodreads and Amazon. Thank you!

Catharsis by Noorilhuda  (One paperback - International)

Ten year old Daniel has been missing for more than a week.  His family and the police have all but lost hope of finding him alive. Then a strange old man enters the precinct at the 99th Avenue and declares he knows where the boy is - and who he’s with. The lead detective on the case, Aurora Fox, is skeptical. Is the hemophiliac puppet master, Maxwell Caine, part of the puzzle or the solution - and why does he look so dolled up?

Dark tale of a tough-as-nails detective, a curious old man and a persistent district attorney - all trying to catch a pedophile..........a serial killer.

Fear is relative.
What would you do to be free?

Writing this book was a terrifying, isolating and entirely intrusive experience - reading it won't be any different.

The reviews have been mixed, negative at best, but it would be great to have as much feedback as possible as to the story, characters and how it makes you feel.

GENRE: psychological thriller, mystery and suspense
SUB-GENRE: women sleuths, amateur sleuths, women's fiction

Fyrebyrne Island by Ash Oldfield (One print edition - International)

“With a thunderous roar it fell from the sky, all gleaming yellow scales, talons the size of broad swords with fanged teeth to match, wings held out from its sides like sails, magnificent and glorious.”

The time has come for thirteen-year-old Rachaya to embrace her dragon heritage. Not everyone is pleased by her arrival on the dragon sanctuary, Fyrebyrne Island, however, and her mother’s enemies may well have become her own.

Will Rachaya live long enough to take on the mantle of Queen of the Dragons or will her enemies prevail?

Fyrebyrne Island is available in paperback from all good online retailers.

One Two winners - Kindle or PDF - International
Two winners will receive Breathe. Breathe., a mixed fiction collection of dark poetry and short stories, recently published by author Erin Al-Mehairi, garnering a Top 2 spot on Amazon's Best Selling Hot New Releases chart in women's poetry and a Top 20 in horror short stories, both places in which she is still trending. This one has deep soul and courage.

Breathe. Breathe. is a collection of dark poetry and short fiction that explores the deepest parts of the soul. It’s a representation of how life can break us apart and words can heal us. Deep, dark emotions are purged onto the pages awaiting you, urging you to get lost at sea and in the deep, dark woods of your mind. There is a fine line between breathing and death.

In Act One, readers are presented with a serial killer in Victorian London, a Lighthouse Keeper with an eerie legacy, a murderous spouse that seems to have walked right out of a mystery novel, and a treacherous Japanese lady who wants to stay immortal. The heightened fears in the twilight of our minds seep into the blackest of our nights, where we have to breathe in rhythm to stay alive.

In Act Two, the poetry turns more internal and pierces through the wall of denial and pain, bringing visceral emotions to the surface unleashing traumas such as domestic abuse, violence, and illness.

In the short stories, you’ll meet residents of Valhalla Lane whose lives are on a parallel track to collision, a man who is driven mad by the sound of a woodpecker, a teenage girl who wakes up on the beach and can’t find another soul in sight, a woman caught in a time shift pitting her up against the Egyptian goddess Anuket, and a little girl whose whole world changes when her favorite crayon color is discontinued.

Throughout the collection of dark poetry and fiction, readers will be haunted by themes of oppression, isolation, revenge, and madness told through folklore, nightmares, and often times raw, impulsive emotion.

With a foreword by the Bram Stoker Nominated author Brian Kirk, Breathe. Breathe. will at times unsettle you, at times embrace you. Erin Sweet Al-Mehairi, a veteran writer and editor of the written word, offers up a mixed set of pieces, identifying her as a strong, new voice in dark fiction that will tear out your heart, but then remind you to breathe.

Available now on Amazon in paperback and for kindle, Kobo, and more to come.
