In my last post I told you about Awesome Indies new website http://awesomeindies.net/ and the sale they were running to launch it. Well the bad news is that their sale is now finished. But the good news is that I have decided to keep my two sale books available for the rest of November.
These books have never been discounted before – ever. So, they are genuine bargains. Let me tell you about them.
The two books I decided to reduce are Night Watcher and A Salt Splashed Cradle, and they’ve both been reduced from $4.99/£3.03 down to $2.99/£1.92.
Night Watcher is the first book in my Dundee Crime Series, featuring DS Bill Murphy. The whole series is very popular, and DS Murphy has quite a following. Night Watcher is a story of two stalkers, both with the same target, Nicole, who is rather partial to male company and is not too concerned about whose husband she steals. I’ve already said there were two stalkers – there is the woman with revenge on her mind playing mind games, and then there is the deranged and dangerous Night Watcher. But who kills Nicole? Read it and find out. Link for Night Watcher.
Here are a couple of reviews of Night Watcher:
Night watcher is the sort of novel that keeps the reader glued to its pages, frantically guessing as the plot takes numerous twists and turns. – Alex Gray, Crime Writer
This is a complex and very well crafted tale, beautifully put together -full of a sense of foreboding, and full of menace. – Catherine Czerkawska
A Salt Splashed Cradle is different. It is not my usual crime story. It is a historical saga set in 1830s Scotland in an east coast fishing village which does not welcome newcomers in their midst. This story reflects the living conditions and the morals of the ordinary fishing folk of that time. It starts when Jimmie Watt brings his new bride home to his horrified parents. This is because fishermen are expected to marry within their own community, and Belle is an incomer from the town across the water. Belle, an emotionally damaged and beautiful girl, struggles to find acceptance in the village but she is fighting a losing battle, and when Jimmie leaves the fishing village to sail to the
Arctic with a whaling ship, she becomes increasingly
isolated. With Jimmie gone, Belle falls for the charms of Lachlan,
the Laird’s son and embarks on a tempestuous affair with him. When Jimmie
returns she struggles with her feelings for him and for Lachlan.
The women in the village now regard Belle as a Jezebel who will tempt their men
away. A mood of hysteria engulfs them and they turn against Belle, in an
attempt to force her out of the village. What will Belle do? And will she
survive? Read it to find out.

Here are some reviews of A Salt Splashed Cradle:
There is some beautiful poetic writing and the complex life of the heroine, Belle, had me gripped from the beginning. Some of the loveliest writing is in the whaling sequences -one can feel the cold - and among the whalers she creates some outstanding characters – Eileen Ramsay, novelist
Chris Longmuir's books so far have been mysterious, suspenseful stories concerned with some of the darker depths of human nature. So it's surprising to learn that this latest is a romance. But fans won't be disappointed. Yes, it's a romance but the murkier motives and actions are still in evidence – Bill Kirton, crime writer
A Salt-Splashed Cradle drips with historical accuracy, and even the scenes aboard a whaling ship seem to have been recounted directly from an 1800's whaler, almost as if Chris Longmuir boarded those ships and chopped them free from the arctic ice herself – Tim Greaton
Why did I decide to keep these two books on offer? Well, that’s easy, I wanted to reward my faithful followers and readers, as well as trying to tempt some new readers into my gang. Why not try one or other of the books, or both if you feel so inclined. And don’t forget to tell me what you think of them.
