#1 Bestseller - British Horror, Amazon.comA haunting novel set in the North Yorkshire Moors about isolation, superstition and persecution. Thores-Cross follows the stories of Emma, a present day writer, and Jennet, an eighteenth century witch.Emma Moorcroft is still grieving after a late miscarriage and moves to her dream house at Thruscross Reservoir with her husband, Dave. Both Emma and Dave hope that moving into their new home signifies a fresh start, but life is not that simple. Emma has nightmares about the reservoir and the drowned village that lies beneath the water, and is further disturbed by the sound of church bells – from a church that no longer exists.Jennet is fifteen and lives in the isolated community of Thores-Cross, where life revolves about the sheep on which they depend. Following the sudden loss of both her parents, she is seduced by the local wool merchant, Richard Ramsgill. She becomes pregnant and is shunned not only by Ramsgill, but by the entire village. Lonely and embittered, Jennet's problems escalate, leading to tragic consequences which continue to have an effect through the centuries. Emma becomes fixated on Jennet, neglecting herself, her beloved dogs and her husband to the point where her marriage may not survive. As Jennet and Emma's lives become further entwined, Emma's obsession deepens and she realises that the curse Jennet inflicted on the Ramsgill family over two hundred years ago is still claiming lives. Emma is the only one who can stop Jennet killing again, but will her efforts be enough?'The writing is near flawless. Your voice is crisp and natural, carrying the reader into lives of the characters and the world you have created seamlessly.' – Lauren Grey, author of 'Threads of Time'.'I love your historicals. They feel so real. I can already tell this one is excellent. The back and forth between Emma's modern life and Jennet's 18th century life is tantalizing.' - Laura Emmons, author of 'Seeing Magic' and 'Healing Hands'.'…a wonderful piece of writing.' - Lin Churchill, author of 'Pride'.'Overall I can see this attracting readers of both contemporary and historical fiction. It seems that it will gravitate around characters and relationships so perhaps it may have more appeal to women. It was a pleasure to read, Karen and it's setting up the connection between past and present very well' - Lesa Clarke, author of 'The Glass House'.'Wow, I've never been into ghost stories before, but this is great!' – Lesley Taylor, author of 'Heart-Brother' and 'Changeling'.'Startling but extremely accurate use of language . . . Very emotive and skilfully handled . . . I found your writing fluid and accurate but more importantly, completely enthralling.' – R.M.A., author of 'The Snow Lily'.'This is terrific.' - Chris Bostic, author of 'Game Changer' and 'Fugitives From Northwoods''As always, your writing is impressive and so is your knowledge of boats. You have clearly taken the time to research the area, the herbs and other various concepts within your book, and it shows and makes the story that much stronger throughout. I really enjoyed this book, truly, and I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it. Well done.'– Claire C Riley, author of 'Limerence''I love the way you handle your characters and the way you blend them into the book from the word go but in such a clever way... There is a really nice narrative here coupled with a brilliant flow and pace to it. You have done well and I like this a lot.' – Sean Connolly, author of. British Army on the Rampage. (B.A.O.R)'Very well crafted… a fantastic read' – Annabel Watkinson, author of 'The Year of Us''This is an excellent example of the timeslip genre. Both Jennet's and Emma's voices are realistic and representative of the two different timeframes.' – Lynne Jones author of The Bon Ton Club

The LionheART Guide to Editing Fiction US Edition is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to editing fiction in Word 2010. Karen Perkins of LionheART Publishing House has helped over a hundred books come to publication in the past year alone, and whilst there are numerous comprehensive grammar guides out there, it is not always that easy to pick out the elements that are most useful to us as authors of fiction. There are two options for getting the editing of your novel right: hiring an editor or doing it yourself. This guide is for authors who want to be intimately involved (and in control) of every aspect of their book. I wanted to compile a tool which is simple, easy to use and full of tips to help you decipher the punctuation and grammatical rules and apply them to your own work - without drowning you in information - whilst paying attention to current trends in the publishing industry. The areas I have highlighted are the ones I come across most often when editing and I also detail the method I use when editing and polishing a manuscript for publication.

Dead Reckoning is an historical adventure of piracy, love and revenge in the Caribbean in the Seventeenth Century.Leo is born in Spanish Panama in 1659. When he is twelve years old he witnesses the violent rape and murder of his mother by three of the Caribbean's most feared pirates: Tarr, Blake and Hornigold, and swears revenge at all costs.Gabriella is trapped in an abusive marriage to a ruthless Dutch slave trader, who is in business with the same English cut-throats. She risks all to escape with her life.Leo and Gabriella meet aboard one of the most horrific ships in the Caribbean – a slaver – and join forces against their common enemy. They face a number of challenges as they battle not only the risks of a life at sea, including storm, drowning, and being adrift in a crippled ship, but also repeated attacks by Blake and Hornigold.But their biggest threat proves to be each other. Can they reconcile their hearts in time for the fiercest battle in their quest of revenge, and survive the gallows?Dead Reckoning was long-listed in the 2011 Mslexia Novel Competition."Wow, what a fantastic story. It's a swashbuckler with a sweeping narrative, full of sea battles, drama, revenge, and love""Ms. Perkins is a sensational storyteller, knowing how to grab your attention, and hold onto you throughout""This is an epic pirate adventure, that is wrought with romance, anguish, fighting and revenge.I was immediately drawn into the story of both Leo and Gabrielle, and fell in-love with both their horrific stories. Their lives eventually collide together and so begins a romance like no other.""So enraptured with this story and its characters that I be became a little lost within it's pages"."K. A. Perkins takes romance, adventure and historical fractions to create a splendid tale.""Some might say that it's a Bernard Cornwell type tale of adventure on the high seas, but it is much more than that. Rather than painting pirates as the swashbuckling adventurers that some authors do, Perkins portrays them as they truly were - violent, bloodthirsty, predators. That credibility is a large part of Dead Reckonings charm""Dead Reckoning is an excellent read and I look forward to reading the other books in Ms. Perkins' series""Dead Reckoning is not a fast read. It is a deeply involving kind of story. One must give it full attention to get the span of the plot and appreciate the different characters. There are different plot lines that blend into the story, each one driving the story forward toward a satisfying finish.""I have not read the first book in this series but this book was a stand alone adventure which really took my interest. The writing is very stylish and the pace and characterisation are good.It is an exciting historical tale played out in the Caribbean on land and at sea. The story has obviously been researched very well and gives you a feeling of authenticity in the facts and places, the ports and the mixtures of peoples.There are life or death battles and romance throughout the book and you will be laughing and also moved to tears in parts.The two heroes, Leo and Gabriella have overcome very difficult traumatic beginnings which they manage to overcome, and grow in character as the story moves forward."
