Nightmare Tenant 6-month anniversary Kindle Giveaway

I’m really thrilled to announce that Nightmare Tenant is 6 months old!

To celebrate this, you can get the book for free on Kindle from September 27th to October 21st 2021!

If you’re in the market for a High Rise inspired, Dr Who-esque horror tale, this may well be the story for you! Loads of characters, amazing concept and some pretty Final Destination style goings-on, Nightmare Tenant is nothing if not a fun, quirky spin on the haunted house trope you think you know so well. Hannah R. Palmer

Set in an old tower block, I found the visuals and descriptions were perfect in setting the scene in a place that’s been quickly tarted up! The author did a great job of having a variety of characters from all walks of life, alongside a sprinkle of humour throughout this thrilling horror story!

An excellent read and I can’t wait to see more from this author! Though I’m now put off from ever living in a tower block…Dan Hook

From the moment I read a short preview of this novel a few weeks back via the author’s Newsletter, I knew I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this and devour it as fast as I could. Needless to say, I finished this book in one sitting, it was such a page turner and I was desperate to find out what happened and the pages kept getting turned and that is a credit to the writing of Richard, who has excelled with creating suspense, tension and genuine horror in this wonderfully crafted novella.

I cannot wait for more of Richard’s works to come and will be eagerly awaiting the next book! Fully recommend this to anyone looking for a crisp, engaging and well written horror!Chris Kenny

Richard created an action-packed, spooky tale, a haunted house story but instead of a rambling building, it all takes place in a giant London tower block. He’s created a great, fully fleshed-out cast of characters. Richard does a great job of pulling you into the story using the main family in the story, so we really get a feel for their plight, and the adventure pulls you along to a rapid, scary finale! I will never be able to drive past a tower block again without remembering this story.Victoria Wren

The foreboding cover draws you in – so immediately you know you don’t want to live there. Atmospheric storytelling with everyday people. I’m used to reading about gothic houses, creepy Victorian settings but a tower block with a lift is a whole new experience.Cheryl Bennet

Review: One Road In

*I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review*

One Road In is a stylish and pacy thriller from an author who has a true affinity for her genre. The cast of characters is intimate and close-knit, as is the setting – the anonymous seaside town of Rose Bay which, in the 1990s, hides a dark secret. We follow Sadie as she returns to Rose Bay to confront the past that she’d tried to escape from when an unexpected figure comes home.

The setting is unashamedly the 1990s, and Hannah seeds the time period effectively throughout the very DNA of this story. The alternating viewpoint – split the “present” in 1995 where Sadie confronts the past, and 1990, where the events that Sadie dreads to recollect are set in motion – and this is effective as the story unfolds. There’s a ominous mood throughout the book which I found gripping and had me reading to the last page to find out the true nature of the mystery.

The characters are tight and every one we meet has a meaning. Sadie and her friends Callie and Vedat are forced to confront the past through the events of the book with a growing sense of unease, with a twist at the end that is seeded earlier but the payoff is very satisfying, and the creepy, decrepit vibe through Rose Bay and the history is thick and enveloping. The story oozes tension and dread.

Hannah has an absolute verve and affinity for the thriller genre and One Road In shows she knows the conventions well, producing a taut and gripping thriller story that I thoroughly enjoyed. This is one of the greats and is a high-quality, suspenseful and impactful book I can’t recommend highly enough, from an author whose future work I’m sure to devour.

Rating: Highly Recommended

One Road In is available from Amazon as a Kindle eBook and paperback.

Review: Wild Spirit: Huntress

*I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review*

Huntress up the stakes once again with Victoria Wren’s compelling and highly-readable Wild Spirit series, and with Huntress, everything that was so compelling about the first book – the story, the characters and the world Victoria has created – was ratcheted up another notch in Huntress, which expands and extends the saga that Win Adler finds herself in.

Victoria again impressed me with her breezy and easy-to-read prose that doesn’t shy away from being stylish, and it really brought me along with the story as it pulled me along! There’s some breathtaking moments that shatter the status quo we are introduced to in Huntress, and with a compelling prologue that’s beautifully written and well-integrated into the main story and with an equally exciting prologue that makes your heart do somersaults knowing you’ll have to wait for the next book.

The Wild Spirit universe is a wonderfully crafted and inspired universe and Huntress expands it magnificently.

I also bought the paperback version and once again was blown away by the beauty of the design – quality work that is deserving of such a fine book.
