BizPR.co.uk – UK Author T. J. Blake Releases New Psychological Thriller, Deception: A Love of Lies

“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.”

An insight into my novel ‘The Author’

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 similarly to 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 Author also takes more time to introduce the characters in more detail and setting the scene early on.
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… “

Reviews from readers

“Dean Koontz meets Stephen King” – Amazon review

“I liked the mystery of Ryan’s missing wife and children and didn’t expect the twist in the end.” – Amazon review

“Once again, I found myself getting lost in another novel by T.J. Blake. The Author, Blake’s follow up to his debut novel Endurance, is full of twists and turns that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat–or bed, or wherever readers read.” – Amazon review

“I am not going to talk about the story because I feel that to give away too much, even of the smaller details would take a huge amount of enjoyment out of the book as the discovery of how it unfolds is one of the most enjoyable aspects.” – Amazon

“Movie Material!” Free-eBooks

“Best book I’ve ever read!” -Free-eBooks

The Author now available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Waterstones.

New Amazon Review For The Author

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 ‘

Overall it is a very positive review and one that I am happy with. Thank you to whoever took the time out to not only read The Author but to also review it.
