New cover for dark fantasy eBook, Alive

I’m really excited to officially reveal the new front cover of my eBook dark fantasy short story, Alive.

Feast your eyes on the new book cover!

Dark fantasy short story Alive T. J. Blake

It’s a massive improvement on the last cover for Alive and truly echoes the darkness, fear and suspense of the story.

This amazing cover wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the talent of Jordan Baker from The Bakery Creative. Thank you for helping me and well done for doing a fine job!

Dark fantasy short story

Although it may seem biased of me to say, but I love Alive. It may only be a short story, but it’s one I really enjoyed writing and re-reading. I read it recently and it had me on edge.

Here’s what other readers are saying about Alive:

Read the whole book continuously… ‘Alive’ is a dark fantasy. I must say I enjoyed the book very much as I’m addicted to dark fantasy stories. I love his writing style and I’m a happy reader.– Amazon.com

Read this short story whilst I was on holiday in Cyprus and loved it! The afternoon passed by so quickly as I couldn’t put it down, a great little page turner. A creepy story line with a great twist, would highly recommend.– Goodreads

Download Alive for free from Amazon on Kindle from 12th-15th of Jan!

Alive will be free to download on Amazon for the weekend – starting tomorrow the 12th of January, and lasting until Monday the 15th.

Once you’ve read it, I’d love to hear your thoughts, so why not leave a review too!

My Latest Microfiction 12 Word Story – ‘Missing’

What can you do with 12 words? Write a story! Check out my 12 word story, ‘Missing’.

I really enjoy microfiction and flash fiction stories. Isn’t it amazing what you can do with just a minimal amount of words?

In just a few words, you can paint a picture inside someone’s mind, you can convey meaning or several meanings, and you can tell a story.

My latest miniature story ‘Missing’ is a 12 word story that I wrote and tweeted for the website and online community 121 Words.

Now, take a look at the story below and see what you think it is about. It may or may not be what you believe; and that’s the beauty of it.

Books by T. J. Blake and what’s to come 

My writing journey began with my debut release, Endurance (2013), a gory dystopian horror-thriller novel.


After my fast paced debut came my suspenseful mystery thriller, The Author (2014), which was closely followed by the second gory book of The Endurance Series, Endurance: Apocalypse (2014).


I then took a year gap whilst I finished my last year at university. But as soon as I fnished, I was back and I decided to release a tense dark fantasy short story, Alive (2016).

After Alive, I released my latest novel, Deception: A Love of Lies (2016) – this book has received wonderful reviews from readers across the globe!


I’m always working on new book ideas, my latest includes a brand new horror!

My next book to be released is the last instalment of The Endurance Series – which is currently due for release later this year.

To find out more about my books and what’s to come, take a look at Books by T. J. Blake.

My 2016 year review and what’s to come! 

Although 2016 has been a terrible year in many ways, it has also been a great year for many. 

Brexit, Trump, celebrity deaths – we all have our reasons for hating 2016, but there are also reasons for people to look back with pride. But the amount of celebrity deaths has been shocking for this year! 

Whether your year has been made by personal achievement, a heartwarming story in the news, or from something as simple as the release of a film, TV show or song, embrace it. 

For me personally, I’ve had a year full of ups and downs, mostly ups, and in terms of my writing it’s been very satisfying. 

Deception: A Love of Lies Goodreads T. J. Blake

My psychological thriller, Deception, has not disappointed. It has received nothing but praise, and has an average rating higher than my other books across Goodreads, Amazon and Barnes & Noble ; which I’m extremely proud of. 

There was also the release of my short dark fantasy story, Alive, which I’m very happy with because just like Deception, it’s a genre I’m not used to. 

For you reading this right now, try something new for next year. If you want to try something new and it’s out your comfort zone, just do it, you have nothing to lose. And who knows, it may pay off!

Roll on 2017 I say, and roll on the final book of my book series, The Endurance Series, coming in the New Year! 

Happy New Year everyone!

Check out my short dark fantasy story ‘Alive’

I wrote this short story for a university assignment in my final year. I’ve let the story stew a little over the past year or so, and I’ve even had some spare time to try and extend it into a full length novel. But with my other commitments to working on my upcoming novels DECEPTION and Endurance: Recovery, I feel that Alive is probably best (at the moment) to remain as a Dark Fantasy short story.

I’ve priced the book at the lowest price I could list it for, and I am hoping that many people will be able to read my short story, and give me their opinion on my brand new eBook. This story is different to my normal books – The Author is a mystery thriller novel which plays on literature, writing and story telling (a book within a book novel); The Endurance Series is an action-packed, fast-paced, dark, creepy, apocalyptic and dystopian book series; DECEPTION (set for release in the summer of 2016) is a thriller novel based on a lonely prowler and avid dog walker; and my brand new short story, Alive, is a dark fantasy about a woman who has left her family – whom believe her to be dead.

Creative Writing: Illusory Waters

Afternoon everyone.

I thought I would let you all know that I have now added another Creative Writing piece to my sparkly new Creative Writing page. This new entry is a short story of mine, which was previously called The Metaphorical Truth, now called Illusory Waters.
I changed the name simply because Illusory Waters is much more appropriate, and I think it sounds much better!

If you have a spare five minutes, then please, have a read of my new short story Illusory Waters.

Further amendments to my blog

What have I been doing with all of my Saturday morning? Well I’m feeling a bit ill, so I thought why not stay in and do some work on my blog; before knuckling down to write some more of DECEPTION.  

So, what have I done? Well, I came across a piece of work which I wrote in my first year of university. At the time I think I received a 2:1, but reading back I’m not sure how I got such a good mark!
Anyway, I went through it, made a couple of changes and now it’s available to read on my blog as an article. This brings me onto my first change to the blog, my new page – the’Articles‘ page – where I can now upload articles I write or find lurking within my computer. You’re probably wondering what my article is about? It’s about how technological development has impacted our language. The article covers a basic overview of how technology has adapted, as well as looking into how it has changed people’s writing and speaking capabilities, or has it? – How has technology affected the relation between speech and writing?

I’ve also created a ‘Creative Writing‘ page, which basically merges most of my creative pieces together. These pieces currently include my Flash Fiction, ‘Poem Attempts’ and Short Story Nightmare.
On this Creative Writing page, I have added something pretty nifty. Everyone loves a poll (I know I certainly do) and when we see one on a website, it’s hard not to vote, right? This is why I have created a poll for my Creative Writing page. By going to this page and scrolling to the bottom, you can find the poll and place a vote!
It’s a basic question, it’s not political and it isn’t going to impact anyone’s life, but I would like to know which of my Creative Writing pieces you enjoyed most.

Those are my two major changes to the T. J. Blake #Author blog, feel free to have a nose!
