Guest Post and Giveaway: Win The One by @johnmarrs1 @EburyPublishing

One simple mouth swab is all it takes. 

One tiny DNA test to find your perfect partner - the one you're genetically made for. 

A decade after scientists discover everyone has a gene they share with just one person, millions have taken the test, desperate to find true love. 

Now, five more people take the test. But even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking - and deadlier - than others...

A psychological thriller with a difference, this is a truly unique novel which is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Guest Post:

When I first started planning to write The One, I knew that it was going to need a diverse ensemble of characters. The premise has a slight sci-fi edge to it – i.e that we all have a DNA Match out there who’s the person we are destined to fall in love with – so the rest of the story needed to have broad appeal to grab readers’ attention. Therefore it had to be very much character led.
The One follows five people, each of whom discover they have a Match somewhere out there, but they don’t have any idea who it is. That Match could be any sexuality, religion, race, location or age. And that gave me an awful lot of scope to play with.

#BookReview The Hanged Man's Noose by @JudyPenzSheluk @BarkingRain

Buy on Amazon

Small-town secrets and subterfuge lead to murder in this fast-moving, deftly written tale of high-stakes real estate wrangling gone amok.

Journalist Emily Garland lands a plum assignment as the editor of a niche magazine based in Lount’s Landing, a small town named after a colorful 19th century Canadian traitor. As she interviews the local business owners for the magazine, Emily quickly learns that many people are unhappy with real estate mogul Garrett Stonehaven’s plans to convert an old schoolhouse into a mega-box store. At the top of that list is Arabella Carpenter, the outspoken owner of an antiques shop, who will do just about anything to preserve the integrity of the town’s historic Main Street.

But Arabella is not alone in her opposition. Before long, a vocal dissenter at a town hall meeting about the proposed project dies. A few days later, another body is discovered, and although both deaths are ruled accidental, Emily’s journalistic suspicions are aroused.

Putting her reporting skills to the ultimate test, Emily teams up with Arabella to discover the truth behind Stonehaven’s latest scheme before the murderer strikes again.


What I like about reading is the opportunity it gives to the reader to discover new writers, genres and styles. Not all are good, some are indifferent and others could read over and over again.I was given a copy of The Hanged Man’s Noose by Judy Penz Sheluk to review and I am so glad I decided to read it.

This book conjured up so many lovely warm images for me; considering it is a book involving murder you may wonder how that is possible! Let me explain.
I love those Christmas films set in America where there is lots of snow, bounteous Christmas decorations and everyone is warm and friendly. Everybody knows exactly what is going on and there is a general feeling of happiness. That is exactly what happened to me with this book; it enabled me to envisage Lount’s Landing and the people there and every time I picked this book up I escaped into a different reality; that portrayed in the book.
