My thriller novel Pestilence (Double Dragon Publishing), is currently being offered in paperback by Amazon.com for just $4.24, a saving of 72% on the normal retail price. If you'd like to try one of my books and haven't done so previously, (or even if you have), this a great opportunity to grab a bargain. I'm not sure how long Amazon will keep the book at this price, but usually, these offers are limited to between 2 and 4 weeks.
Pestilence has picked up some great reviews since its release, and stock are limited, but, even if they sell out, the price will remain the same as long as the offer continues, so it is possible to order at the reduced price, and be guaranteed the bargain price when stocks are replenished.
About the book
From award winning author Brian L Porter comes the thriller sensation of the year. 'Pestilence' leads where others will follow in creating a scare-fest that will terrify, entertain and astound the reader.Pestilence....breathe if you dare!The year is 1958, the place, an idyllic village in the heart of the English countryside. Olney St. Mary has stood in its peaceful rural location for over 900 years. Suddenly however, the peace of the community is shattered when two teenage boys are stricken with a mystery illness. The newly arrived village doctor suspects 'flu to be the cause of their malady. Her initial diagnosis is terribly and tragically wrong!Before long, Doctor Hilary Newton and the residents of Olney are plunged into a nightmare of Biblical proportions as the death toll rises and no cure can be found for the disease that ravages the local population, despite the doctors employing the latest antibiotics available to them. Somehow, this plague is different! Help arrives in the form of a medical team from the outside, but the bodies continue to pile up. Someone, somewhere, perhaps within the community itself, knows the reason behind the pestilence that has struck at the heart of the village, but will the medics learn the truth before it's too late, or will they too join the growing list of names that appear on the roll of death roll in Olney St. Mary?When a mysterious explosion wreaks havoc in the children's playground, followed by a second lethal blast in Olney's makeshift field hospital the sinister and unbelievable truth behind the pestilence begins to slowly reveal itself.Award-winning author Brian L Porter takes terror to a new dimension as an age old horror returns to nineteen fifties rural England. This time however, the pestilence itself appears to have evolved!
`Pestilence- is a multi layered plot at which the British truly excel. The characters, from the rustic villager, quaint old ladies, harried doctors, conniving officials, suspicious military types people the pages of this fast moving thriller. Porter-s economical use of language, the simplicity of words readily evoke both tumultuous and more benign moods. There is one hilarious scene as two entwined lovers fall for each other. The valve radio just happens to play songs which are so appropriate to the scene which through perspicacious attention Mr Porter portrays with aplomb.
The research is excellent, the imagery, the scenes are easily conjured for our minds to create a satisfying mystery. The reprehensible plot hatched by heinous minds is just a part of the mosaic where lives are promiscuously gambled with. Worse lives become expendable as sinister and deviousness individuals would try and use the deaths of too many of the innocent for their own shady ends a decade after the Messerschmitt-s crash to realize their dark intent. Sinister forces are indeed festering malignantly in the background. Lutz Barz

Being wealthy and beautiful doesn’t promise an automatic ticket for happiness. Sometimes you need the angelic touch of someone who needs you as much as you need him… Sometimes it’s hard to tell where one set of wings ends and the other begins.
Claire is alluring, sensual – called an angel by some, though the woman she’s become is anything but celestial. Her heart is filled with pain so deeply embedded she doesn’t want to live any longer…until fate puts her into the hands of the most virtuous man she’s ever met; a man who needs someone like Claire to help him piece together the shattered bits of his own life.
4RV Publishing are now able to accept pre-orders for my forthcoming release Wolf, due for release in June 2011.Wolf is a tense adventure story, beautifully illustrated by Theresa Stites, aimed at readers in the teen/young adult market, but is suitable for readers of all ages.
The gray wolf is now, sadly, on the endangered species list, and I hope that Wolf will go some way towards educating people as to the qualities of this noble beast. How sad it would be if our children and grandchildren one day find that the only way they can see a wolf is through pictures, or a stuffed inanimate animal in a natural history museum.
Living the good life in their cabin close to the forest, Warren and Emma are disturbed to find their livestock disappearing in the night. Tracks in the snow lead them to believe their chickens may have fallen victim to a marauding wolf, and Warren sets out to track down the uninvited predator. What he discovers, as the snow begins to fall and he draws ever closer to his prey, will surprise and delight the reader as the truth about the wolf in the night reveals itself, changing Warren’s life for ever!
“A story full of soul, exploration, nature, and wolfish delight.”
Graeme S Houston, author and publisher

The artifact is revealed to be bogus, and the real purpose of their search is slowly exposed. A menacing background presence, in the form of an old-established London crime family appears, to display an abnormal interest in the goings-on in the ancient town where Christianity laid its roots in England. There, aided by the enigmatic and flamboyant university professor Lucius Doberman, Joe and his team must solve the mystery of Glastonbury before the sinister historian Walter Graves makes the discovery that could cost him and the whole team their lives.

THE HOUSE ON BLACKSTONE MOOR is on both the best sellers and highest rated lists at Smashwords!
This is gothic romance but it goes beyond the vampire theme, it discusses serious issues. one of which is child abuse that is integral to the story.
It also examines human and supernatural evil and the terror they leave in their wake.

Blue Heaven - Link
[Siren Classic: Erotic Alternative Fantasy Romance, M/M]
Take him from Heaven’s Seat. Bring him to me. We will protect his sacred head.
Stryver Zorti’s mission appears simple. Kidnap the Godchild and deliver him to his master. But with the first meeting of the holy man’s azure gaze, desire surges in him to strip bare the God and touch the man within.
Worshiped all his life, the Godchild is shocked by the stranger who dares lay hands on him, even if it is to save him from assassins. With a different name given by his new ally, Blue is freed from the constraints of the holy order for the first time. He revels in the extraordinary experiences opening to him, then in the passion that sparks between him and the hard-edged, oddly gentle Stryver.
But a god does not love, and if discovered, their precarious utopia will shatter, destroying any chance for a future together--that is, if the assassins don’t kill them first.
