The Revelation Room Re-launch

Today, I’m delighted to be able to show you the new cover for The Revelation Room, and share the first chapter with you. The book is going to be re-launched by Bloodhound Books next week:

Book Description:
Ben Whittle’s father, a private investigator, has been taken captive by a cult whilst investigating the case of a missing girl. When Ben receives a desperate call from his father asking for help he is drawn into a dark underground world.

As Ben retraces the last known steps of the missing girl he discovers his only option left is to join the cult and rescue his father from the inside.

The leader of the cult, Edward Ebb, is a psychopathic egocentric who uses his position to control his small group of followers in The Sons and Daughters of Salvation. When he initiates Ben into the group it soon becomes apparent how sick and twisted Ebb is.

Ben must find his father and the missing girl, but the odds are stacked against him and time is running out.

Can Ben rescue his father and the girl and escape with his life?
And what is the gruesome secret concealed in the Revelation Room?

The Revelation Room is the first in a new series of psychological mystery thrillers.

 

To give you a taster of the book, here’s the first chapter:

Chapter One

Geoff Whittle stood in a tree twenty feet above the ground and stared at death. Death stared back at him in the guise of an automatic rifle with sunlight glinting off the barrel. A man wearing bright yellow overalls levelled the weapon at Geoff’s head. Geoff propped his long-range camera in the fork of two branches, wrapped his arms around the trunk for support, and tried to make contact with God for the first time since his dog had got run over when he was a kid.

A short fat man accompanying the shooter asked, ‘Who are you?’

Geoff searched his mind for lies. Terror shut down his imagination. The man with the rifle had shoulder-length brown hair and a goatee beard. He also had a nasty twitch in one eye. Continue reading

The Whittle Investigations to be re-released!

I’m thrilled to announce that Bloodhound Books have offered me a 3 book deal that includes the re-release of The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused, as well as the publication of the third and final book in the series.

The re-releases will happen in June and August, and will see both books with new covers. I am currently planning the third book, and hope to write it in the summer.

I’m really happy with this development, and it means that all my books to date will be with Bloodhound. Both The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused have been unpublished from Amazon, but will still be available to Kindle Unlimited users until May.

 

All the best,

Mark.

Exciting News!

Today, I’d like to share with you the wonderful news that Bloodhound Books have agreed to publish my third novel, The Abattoir of Dreams. This is such a massive opportunity for me, and a great chance to reach a bigger audience. Bloodhound Books was the first publisher I’ve approached with any of my work for a very long time. The reason? I simply love everything about them. Not only are they extremely approachable and helpful, they have an excellent track record with the works in their care. They actively seek out unknown authors, and specialise in the darker side of fiction – my preferred genre. Also, they don’t follow trends, and prefer individuality. Bloodhound owners, Betsy and Fred, focus on publishing the fiction which they enjoy.

I couldn’t be more pleased about this association. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support, especially those who bought The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused. And special thanks to those who have taken the time to offer help and advice, especially Maggie James, Maxine Groves, Heather Osborne, Mel Comley, Louise Mullins and Cassie Adland. And, of course, Bloodhound Books!

As always, many thanks for reading,

Mark
