I was glad to see a new rating and review for my novel The Author on Amazon (Kindle Edition).
‘ The book introduces you to its protagonist, Ryan Milligan, an author whose wife and children disappeared four years previously. He moves to a new house, soon feeling that something is not right. There are weird neighbours, strange dreams, women are murdered in the neighbourhood. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Amazon plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.
With The Author, T. J. Blake has created a horror story that requires your concentration. The story provides you with the present, excerpts from the author’s ‘Killing For Your Love’, and Ryan’s dreams and/or nightmares – not necessarily in that order. It is easy to distinguish the book excerpts, harder to separate nightmare from reality. I couldn’t help considering if Ryan had lost his marbles. The Author is not an easy read, comprises interesting turns, the brutality towards the end is a little exaggerated. T. J. Blake seems to be an author with real potential.
3.4 stars ‘

I have come to the decision that if my next novel Endurance: Apocalypse (Endurance 2) receives positive reviews and you all enjoy it, then I will expand the original plan of just two Endurance’s into a possible 3 or 4 book series.
I have begun planning Endurance 3 but I will only continue to extensively plan once I am happy with Endurance: Apocalypse and that it is released.
I should also mention that I plan to also write a new Supernatural Horror, which I hope to have available to you all before the end of 2014.

The Author is completely different to my first book Endurance.
Endurance was the kind of book where the ideas came to me quickly. I had many ideas for it and I wanted to make it different, which is why I wrote it in the style of horror with segments of sci-fi and dystopia, and a fast paced narrative.
The Author however is intricate. Creating the plot was like piecing together a puzzle. It has many twists and turns like Endurance but the story is told in such a different way. The Author is told in the 1st person narrative, from the view of the main character (who happens to be ‘The Author’, Ryan Milligan). The Authoralso takes more time to introduce the characters in more detail and the setting.
I also thought it would be interesting to tell a story which had another story to tell throughout, called ‘Killing For Your Love’ meaning that it gave me the opportunity to try adding the concept of a book within a book idea.
The Author builds up slowly but once it gets right into the story, that’s when the book becomes dark, twisted and creepy.
I don’t want to reveal any spoilers of the book so I won’t say too much more. But I will leave you with a little teaser (below).

” As I turn to enter, I hear a noise inside. I pause to listen again. Silence. I take the key to the front door from my pocket and slowly insert it and unlock the door. I gently push the door, which creaks the more it opens.
Then I listen; no more sounds are heard. I step inside. The house is so cold… the door under the stairs catches my attention. It’s standing ajar. the door under the stairs catches my attention. It’s standing ajar. It creaks and I stare as I walk slowly towards it. The handle is cool to the touch. I yank open the door… “

Whilst settling in and writing his new novel, ‘Killing for your love’, he realises things are not what they seem…
“My new house is only a mile away from the home I used to live in with Tan and the kids, but now I feel like I’m in a different world. I can’t help but feel like I’ve been here before and done this before. There’s a presence here, I can feel it. There are things happening in this house that aren’t normal. I’m threatened by the lack of control I have over them.
There’s one room where I feel it most, and as I stare at the door leading down into the basement, it begins to creak open.” “
