Schism: A Psychological Thriller
« on: November 01, 2011, 08:04:34 AM »
From the award-winning author of The End of the World comes a dark and disturbing new psychological thriller, Schism.



You can check it out here in the U.S. and here in the U.K.!

Overview:

As a boy, Horatio Higgins was ignored by the other children, but that didn't stop him having lots of friends...friends only he could see and whom he'd regale with tales of his fantastical exploits. Eventually, though, his parents became concerned at the inordinate amount of time their son appeared to spend talking to himself and took him for treatment which, in time, proved successful...almost. One friend remained. Unfortunately it was the spiteful one.

Years later, living alone in his tiny London flat, Horatio's loneliness is mitigated only by his acid-tongued friend and the company of what he affectionately refers to as "my wife". After losing his job, however, his life begins a rapid downward spiral...that is, until he meets a sweet, impressionable young woman named Nore. As their relationship lurches unsteadily forward, Horatio finds himself struggling against a riptide of conflicting realities he's ill-equipped to cope with. Can Nore save him from himself or will she, too, be dragged into a world where the line between fantasy and reality becomes increasingly and perilously blurred?

Weaving together dark humour with shocking, unsettling twists, Schism is sure to stay with you long after you've turned the last page.

Warning: This book contains Adult Subject Matter.

Thank you so much, Heidi! Greatly appreciated.  :)

Next up is a bizarre short story called "A Familiar Face" which I hope to have out in the next couple of week or so. It involves two old ladies and a human head in a jar. :o It's part of an upcoming collection which I plan to have ready by early next year. Thanks so much for your interest!
