New Release & eBook Giveaway! Sweet Tooth by Philip Ellis

One of our new releases in December is the fabulous collection of short fiction written by Philip Ellis. 'Sweet Tooth' is Philip's debut anthology which consists of 16 spellbinding stories. Each short fictional tale is just as brilliantly crafted as the next and leaves you itching to turn the page.

"Everybody wants to be loved; it is the nature of the beast."
Sweet Tooth dives under the skin of the twenty-first century animal to bring you tales of love, loss, desire and revenge. An unearthed diary yields terrible secrets; a lonely young man tells a lie that spirals out of control; a trip to Italy goes horribly wrong for two lovers, and a little girl hears screams from the house next door...

At times funny and poignant, at others chilling and provocative, 'Sweet Tooth' becomes as addictive as crack and each new story brings yet another fix.

Word Count: Approximately 26,000
Warnings: Contains offensive language, violence and references to m/m sexual encounters.

As a brand new indie ebook publisher who is just starting out and beginning to attract new talent, it is tough to find the authors who truly support our ideals. We were incredibly lucky to find Philip and rumour has it that there will be more from him in 2011!

Independent Review
This book is well worth the read. After every story I was keen to read the next, personal favourite 'The Girlfriend'. I found this book addictive as I wanted to know what the next story was going to be like in comparison to the last. A definite must read. Looking forward to reading more by this talented author.

    I have read a lot of short stories in 2010 so it's hard to name just one favorite. However, I will name 'Chicxulub' by T. Coraghessan Boyle. You can read my review of it here:

    Thanks for the giveaway!
