Giveaway #1: Signed Copy of Door by Catherine McCarthy

What is an anniversary celebration without gifts?


I’m very pleased to announce the first giveaway of the month. The super talented, multi genre writing author, Catherine McCarthy, is very generously donating a signed copy of her horror collection – Door, and Other Twisted Tales – to one lucky entrant of this giveaway.

About the book:

Botany Bay, 1790 – One by one, a colony of white-skinned pioneers disappear from their camp. Did the legendary rainbow serpent of the Dreamtime, Goorialla, wreak revenge on the ghosts for disturbing its sacred watering hole?

North-east coast of Japan 2011, vicinity of Fukushima Nuclear Plant – Seismic waves on the Pacific Ocean floor cause a catastrophic tsunami. The mythical giant catfish, Namazu, is believed to seek retribution for human greed by creating earthquakes. Could it be to blame?

Door and Other Twisted Tales is a collection of ten, dark portal stories, each set in a different time, a different place, yet woven together by supernatural visitations which result in the death, destruction and disappearance of humans in recompense for their actions.

From Plague – the embodiment of the 14th Century Black Death, to Shams – a contemporary tale of the mysteries of quantum physics and the mind, Door and Other Twisted Tales will lead you on a journey through time and place as the consequences of greed, impulse, loneliness and fear are exposed.

About the Author:

Catherine McCarthy grew up in the industrial valleys of South Wales where she went on to teach in primary education for almost three decades.

Having been ‘shown the light’ by her mother, who had the tradition of oral story-telling down to a fine art, she quickly developed an insatiable appetite for all things literary.

Her books include the middle grade fantasy adventure, The Gatekeeper’s Apprentice; The dark family saga, Hope Cottage; and her collection of portal horror short stories, Door and Other Twisted Tales.

Her most recent novel, a contemporary fantasy, The Wolf and the Favor, is forthcoming.
