First of all, two brief – but important! - messages:
1. Thank you all for helping to make my latest novel, Soul Stealer, a psychological suspense thriller – which I wrote about in my last post HERE! - reach the top 30 psychological thriller category of Amazon UK’s eBooks!
2. Next week to celebrate Hallowe’en at Alphabe-Thursday, you’ll find here the latest edition of “Your Lola Lifeline” – a Hallowe’en special - plus answers to queries from two dear readers! Who are the (un)lucky pair? Don’t you dare miss it!
Now, those dear readers who have already downloaded Soul Stealer will know that the protagonist, Alice, a London-based journalist, travels to various parts of Britain in her search for the truth in this story of the secretive, shadowy world of identity theft, betrayal and revenge.
As I mentioned in my last post, this thriller tells the story of one person’s change of identity to escape “things”. And the relentlessly chilling, life-changing consequences for those left behind, especially those searching for the truth behind subterfuge and ... murder. Does the character in SOUL STEALER escape justice too? Well, … but you really don’t want me to give away the ending, do you?!
But what I can reveal is the background – and inspiration - to the novel that is set in the season of autumn. And something about the main places that Alice visits: the Peak District, Derbyshire; Stonehenge in Wiltshire, SW England, and Lake Vernwy near the Welsh/Shropshire border. Here then are some images (if only these could have been included on Kindle!). So, follow Alice’s journey – as “seen” through her eyes!
1. Stonehenge - Autumn Equinox:
More images: Sarsen stone in the inner circle: 2. Lake Vernwy, near Welsh/Shropshire border:
Firstly, Lake Vernwy Hotel, which overlooks the lake and where Alice spends a night:
and the lake itself: And the jetty where Alice takes a contemplative walk:
3. The Peak District, Derbyshire:
Eastern Peak District Moors in heather, near Curbar (top of page):
Nearby Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, residence of Duke & Duchess of Devonshire (below): More Peak District autumnal scenes: Like its predecessor, THE DE CLERAMBAULT CODE, SOUL STEALER is available on Amazon both in paperback and as an eBook (at just 86p for UK readers – a steal!) with all profits to charity (see sidebar or click
HERE for amazing reviews and further shameless self-promotion!)
So, dear readers, download now onto your Kindle, iPad or palm of your hand. I don’t mind!

And, finally, thank you to all my dear readers who have visited or commented. And to new followers too. Have a great weekend!
