Probably one for the lads (sorry no naked boobies).

Mobsters, Monsters and Nazis
Dan O'Brien

Here's a one-of-a-kind reading experience for the guys that have refused to grow up! Dan O'Brien has teamed up with illustrator Steve Ferchaud to blend hard boiled, dark, detective stories with pulp comics.

Sounds perfect for those cold approaching winter nights, eh, fellas?

Mobsters, Monsters and Nazis follows private investigator Derrick Diamond as he searches for a device that the Nazis need for their nefarious experiments. He's aided by Ava Harpy, a lounge singer at the Yellow Monarch, and as they dive deep into the underbelly of the city, they uncover a sordid plot that is much larger than they could have possibly imagined.

So without further ado let's introduce Dan O’Brien’s latest project: Mobsters, Monsters and Nazis: a collaboration between Dan O’Brien and Steve Ferchaud, who illustrated Conspirators of the Lost Sock Army and the Loose Change Collection Agency

What Dan is revealing today are the sketches for some of the interior illustrations (which will be black and white) of the first issue of Mobsters, Monsters and Nazis. The books will be released as six issues (eBooks) starting on Halloween.

Influenced by film noir, pulp comics, and an abiding love of Lovecraft, it is now available for pre-order so what are you waiting for?

Dan would love to hear what you think of it so far. Visit him at the Dan O'Brien Project or find him on Twitter.

Louise Wise's page turner two-parter!

Eden #1

Her senses were acute to sound, and her brain nagged her to flee, but she remained motionless. The old, old trick: play dead.
Imagine being an astronaut.

Now imagine applying for a mission where you became one of the first humans to travel outside the solar system.

The training couldn't prepare you for what was about to happen--the unimaginable.

Jenny Daykin, her co-travellers presumed dead, became shipwrecked on Eden.

She wasn't alone.

Jenny Daykin, ordinary woman with an extraordinary dilemma: kill or be killed. Surrender or invade. Hunt or Hunted. Love or hate.
Hunted #2

As the only survivors they rely on one another. But he isn’t human and the place she calls home, isn't Earth
Jenny chose love. An emotion only felt by higher species such as you or I. 

But do so-called 'higher species' need to have the thought-process of hope love? Or are such emotions mere survival instincts? Or, even, a disabling thought-process? 

An error of human-kind?

Somehow, Jenny found herself wondering just that as she was forced to quell her emotions in order to survive.

Want a 99c/77p book?

Book back to original price. But it's still cheap!

Do you believe in fairy tales?

I never used to. I always thought our destiny was down to ourselves and the paths we choose. What I discovered is that our destiny is already pre-mapped. 

Let me explain... during the winter of 2013 I became Cinderella. A modern Cinderella.

While I was tending the graves of my parents I noticed I was being watched by a middle-aged woman. She introduced herself as Ellen, and became a thorn in my side ever since. She claimed to be my fairy godmother.

I claimed she was bossy, interfering, insufferable... I could go on, but I doubt you have time.

My ugly sisters weren't real-life people unlike Ellen but my problems: Depression and Insomnia.

Prince Charming was womanising Lex Kendal who refused to take no for an answer. And my glass slipper was Boots--a kitten.

Events caused us all to meet, and our lives became entangled in a way none of us expected.

The story is told from Lex and my own point of view in varying chapters, because, I guess, we both went on a journey in those crazy first months of meeting. And you can read our full story in the novel: Oh no, I’ve Fallen in Love!

Remember though, the nightmare that you have in your sleep is really reality trying to get your attention. So listen to your nightmares. Because you probably don't have a fairy godmother.
