March 2016 marked three years into my indie author career, and the 23rd of August marked three years since I was featured in The Surrey Advertiser, with my debut novel, Endurance.
My time of self-publishing horror and thriller novels has been a real blast; I simply cannot complain about my experience with self-publishing what so ever. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed writing numerous stories for people to read, I’ve loved hearing what people think of my stories, I’ve been both stunned and thrilled about seeing sales across the world, and I’m excited for what’s to come.
I thrive on entertaining people and I love nothing more than getting lost in my own imaginary world, surrounded by people who I do not know but care about tremendously; and then left to observe this universe, and tell you what is happening.
My love for writing will never change, so there is a lot more to come from me – I hope you don’t mind?
Late July, early August of 2016, I decided to self-publish my fourth novel, Deception: A Love of Lies.
It’s my latest psychological thriller, based on an obsessive dog walker called Billy. He loves nothing more than to observe ‘his’ woodlands with his springer spaniel, Ella. But during these ventures into his woodlands, he notices an attractive lady from afar. Check out the synopsis of Deception below, and feel free to order it on Amazon now – you can begin reading in seconds on Kindle & eBook – getBook.at/DeceptionTJBlake
“Through the stark and leafless trees, I see her.
I remember the first day I saw her; an instant attraction. I think she’s beautiful. She has such pensive blue eyes; they remind me of a blue sky right before the sun descends. Every time I see her I want to talk to her, I want to get to know her, and I want to be her friend.
She usually completes the lower woodland walk in six minutes and forty-two seconds; she misses the deeper woodlands and goes home, I believe.
I walk down the road at the same speed as her. She reaches the crossroads at the bottom of the road, looks both ways, and then jogs across into the garden of a house. I stop walking and concentrate on which house is hers.
I can’t stare too long but I am intrigued already, I will come back.”
I guarantee that once you read my new thriller, you will not be able to look at passing dog walkers the same!
