The Foreign Desk

by Alexander Clifford

Fact? Fiction? It doesn’t matter. Bumbling journalist Henry Henderson is on his next assignment. This time to the sleepy skiing town of Creleon, Spain. Dispatched by his paranoid boss, Henderson goes on a quest for a weather altering machine that could change the world as we know it. Jolly japes ensue, although a storm seems to be brewing that could be his last on the foreign desk.

Expect to be charmed as you are transported to a time of chummy old-school journalists, clacking typewriters and daring adventure. Inspired by The Grand Budapest Hotel and Stefan Zweig, this novella is an amusing, blustering and heartwarming romp through the mountains.



No Room for Regret: Exiled: to nowhere, with no-one, with nothing (Cullen / Bartlett Dynasty Book 1)

by Janeen Ann O’Connell

Award winning read – Chill with a Book – May 2018 (Pauline Barclay Founder of Chill with a Book Awards – UK)
“Historical fiction at its best.”
“I feel like I’ve made new friends, been on a ship, been forced to the other side of the world and much much more!!
I love the characters, love how it moves between their stories and is written so eloquently. I especially love the smells!!!
If I had more time on my hands I would’ve finished it in one weekend.. it’s amazing!!
The touches of history, distances, images, newspaper cuttings really bring the story to life and make you invest even more.” (Ashleigh Hutton)

“The author gives her characters permission to recount their own convict beginnings, the details of each adding depth to their actions and relationships, so significant to the plot lines that gradually unfold. The inspirational stories of these souls, transported to another world, are revealed in lives truly lived.”

Part of the refuse of Georgian England, dumped on the other side of the world. Is survival conducive to living?

Pendulum: Remember The Notes

by John Carpenter

Music can take you to places where no man can walk, nor bird can fly. For Arnold that place is the distant past.

Arnold has never had a family. Still, he’s always had music to guide him through life. Whilst hiding from his pushy foster parents, he finds a shoddy old piano and some simple sheet music with the words: â??Remember The Notes’ scrawled on the top. He plays the song and gets transported back to when the song was first playedâ?¦ Venice, Italy, 1698.

Here he meets Barty; the eccentric inventor of the piano. An elderly man who feels his invention was just one big waste of the little time he has left. He feels his invention has failed and the people of the era are quick to dismiss it as he struggles to play anything of worth to the patrons. In a night of rage, he destroys the piano, sickened at how it wasted so many years of his life.

This leaves Arnold with no method to return to the modern age and so he must convince Barty that the recreation of the piano is for the good of humanity. However, time is quickly running out as Barty is rapidly descending into the unreturnable grasp of Dementia.
