You think you know darkness? Think again.

Let me tell you a little about a fantastic project I’ve been lucky enough to have been involved in. It’s called Dark Minds and it is a collection of short stories from many of your favourite crime writers around today. As a matter of fact there are forty of them in total, and in my opinion every one of them has written a fantastic piece of work to help two worthy charities.

These charities are, Sophie’s Appeal and the second Hospices UK. If you want to know a little more about these two charities I’ve created a link to their websites.

Now getting back to the authors, there are some great names in there such as Lisa Hall, Steven Dunne, Anita Waller, Betsy Reavley, Louise Jensen, Louise Ross as well as M A Comley to name but a few. Each and every one has donated a great deal of time and effort for absolutely no gain to themselves apart from the satisfaction they have helped others in their time of need. Now, I must say I am writing this with a great sense of pride as I too have been included in this list but I must say I am far from being in their league and I certainly don’t consider myself anywhere near. But I still feel proud that one of my short stories was selected and more than happy to think I have contributed in a very small way.

However, I must say a very special mention should go out to Bloodhound Books, the publishers of this great book and their staff. If I have only contributed in a small way these guys haven’t. Each and every one of them have worked a great deal to bringing the project to completion. But let me tell you a little more about a gentleman called Fred Freeman and his wife, Betsy. They have been the driving force behind this project from the initial idea, to seeing the book being placed on many bookshelves around the world. Both of them have worked their socks off over many months and rode over many frustrations, which come with a project of this size. So really I take my hat of to these two guys. By the way Betsy is also a very talented writer herself and she has written an excellent piece of work called, By the Water. It’s the sixth story in and I’ll tell you now it’s riveting.

So, if you’re into crime and want a great entertaining read, as well as helping two worthy charities; do yourself, and others a favour; go ahead and buy this book. It really is good.

Take the very best of care all. Type your paragraph here.
