New releases – out now in paperback and ebook
by James Quinn
A raunchy, blasphemous, provocative and funny story about Simon – a fundamentalist preacher and atheist, a marriage guidance counsellor and adulterer – whose life becomes very complicated indeed.
This Freshest Hell
by Natasha Ewendt
Dark secrets shared …
Dark spells invoked …
Death desired and
death defied …
Goth Maggie and misfit Lily are best friends for life – and beyond.
This gothic exploration of human capacity for evil and the purpose of existence should be read to an alternative music soundtrack.

A 5-star rating and review from a reader on Amazon.com
"Not for the fainthearted
This book is POWERFUL - two unflinchingly honest tales that build upon the raw strength of human endurance. Sneddon has a way of grabbing his words and punching them into shape. Very impressive. I look forward to seeing more from him." - EBAB, 15 April 2013.
