Brewer and The Portuguese Gold

By: James Keffer

Estimated Length: 11.3 hours

Project Budget: Royalty Share

Word Count: 104786

Language: English

Newly promoted to captain, William Brewer is tasked to serve and defend British interests in the waters off Brazil. But who defines what constitutes Britain’s Interests? Portugal’s former colony is declaring independence, and an independent Brazil might better serve Britain’s economic development. King George, however, chooses to support Portugal’s monarch and his efforts to retain the colony. At the very least, Portugal’s king wants to retrieve the royal treasury that was sent to Brazil for safekeeping during the Napoleonic wars. So British ships are sent to support Portugal’s interests, even when many of the captains— and even more of the crewmen—are more than sympathetic towards Brazil. The age of sail is nearing its zenith: ships are faster, navies wield more influence, and modernizations are improving shipboard life. But Brewer is inheriting a ship whose previous captain exercised brutal control over his men until crew members mutinied against him. No less a personage than Admiral Hornblower is hoping Brewer can restore morale before it’s too late. But it may already be too late, at least for some. And it certainly doesn’t make Brewer’s job any easier when a renegade British officer takes it upon himself to champion Brazil’s cause. Admiral Cochrane audaciously sets out to recruit disgruntled British sailors for the new Brazilian Navy —at a much higher rate of pay! At the risk of starting a war with Brazil, a small fleet of British ships led by Admiral Hardy is tasked with spiriting away a royal fortune in Portuguese gold across the pirate-ridden waters of the Atlantic. It will take the combined ingenuity and skill of Brewer, his officers and crew to even have a chance of accomplishing their mission

Brewer and the Barbary Pirates

By: James Keffer

Narrated by: Nigel Peever

Length: 12 hrs and 48 mins

Release date: 05-20-21

Language: English

It is said that a man is grown by his past, and so it was with William Brewer. Before he took command of HMS Defiant in a hurricane and before he hunted pirates in HMS Revenge, Brewer endured a crucible of fire that molded him into the legend he became.

Fresh from the tutelage of Napoleon Bonaparte on St. Helena, Brewer signs on for a cruise under Captain Bush in HMS Lydia to the Mediterranean to battle the Barbary Pirates. Here, Brewer learns to fight, but he also learns what it means to command men in battle and what it takes to order men to their deaths.

Their enemy is a Scottish renegade who is responsible for the deaths of dozens of his fellow sailors over the years and the selling of hundreds of Europeans into African slavery. Along the way, Brewer is introduced to new heroes and new devils. He also receives sage advice from no less than the Duke of Wellington himself. In the end, Brewer has to use all he’s learned - not to mention going beyond all that - to save HMS Lydia from total destruction at the hands of pirates.

Length: 8 hrs and 28 mins

Release date: 04-10-21

Language: English

The ethereal mists blurred Lucy Finnley’s vision, and the murmurings within the wind made her uneasy. However, she had no choice other than to leave the city and take up residence at the Jack Rabbit Inn on the high moor. As she stepped over the threshold, she was aware of the history, legends, and malevolent spirits lingering within the fabric of the building. At least she could escape the trouble brewing in the rest of the world.

Down below, in the valley, lies Hawks Rise on the Moor. Here many secrets hide beneath the veil of respectability, and it is expected that everyone attends the church on Sundays where the Vicar shakes the still air with his sermons of damnation against the evils of an ancient tribe.

Slipping back in time, Henry Mulberry, heir to Mulberry hall, views the moor through troubled eyes. He is responsible for huge swathes of land along with the tenants. Dealing with Irish squatters, a stone quarry, and mines are the least of his problems. The more pressing issues lie with his wayward younger brother Oscar, his irascible ailing father George, and Abbott Mathew. He has little time to pursue matters of the heart or any other desires.

The hunt continues. Who will win the witches or the witchfinders?

This book may be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

Demonspawn

Galaxii, Book 2

By: Christina Engela

Narrated by: Nigel Peever

Length: 6 hrs and 51 mins

Release date: 09-01-20

Language: English

The ISS Mordrake is in serious trouble. After a skirmish with a Corsair marauder, she is stranded in deep space, far from regular shipping routes, and death appears certain.

But in space, not all things are certain. Not even death.

Adrift and stranded in deep space with no hope of rescue, the ISS Mordrake has six month’s worth of food left, but just less than two weeks of air, and things are looking pretty grim. And, as if there’s not enough on their plate already, something dark and mysterious drifts into their path - an ancient derelict ship littered with the dusty remains of its long-dead crew!

The derelict presents an all-too convenient and timely solution to their problem, offering the desperate castaways the spare parts they badly need to repair their ship. But nothing’s ever really that easy, is it? There’s no such thing as a free lunch out here in the cold empty wastes of deep space.

Resentment, bitterness, and malaise having taken hold of the survivors, this sudden reprieve brings new challenges. In order for the crew of the Mordrake to survive, they have to work together - even though the faceless, cold-blooded killer who murdered the Mordrake’s captain still walks freely among them! Despite a further run of mysterious accidental deaths, they must find a way to retrieve the parts they need to repair their own vessel - no matter what it was on the derelict ship that seemed to want to keep them for itself!

Demonspawn is the second title in the Galaxii Series by Christina Engela.

“This story reminded me of films such as Alien and Event Horizon but Demonspawn could easily stand shoulder to shoulder with them. There were many concepts of the sci-fi genre in this book that were original and put together in a way not seen before anywhere else (this was especially so for the ‘Akx’). It’s an enjoyable read that will leave you wanting more. 5 stars.” (Lee Hall, UK-based writer, playwright, and reviewer)

Blachart

Galaxii, Book 1

By: Christina Engela

Narrated by: Nigel Peever

Length: 10 hrs and 26 mins

Release date: 07-09-20

Language: English

Action! Adventure! Space opera!

Mykl d’Angelo, skipper and owner of the loderunner Pegasus, had fallen on hard times, and he'd just had the worst day of his life in that field. Due a minor misunderstanding, his crew had stolen the "Short Shit" - the ship's only shuttle, leaving him and two others behind to crew the ailing (and now understaffed) loderunner on their own.

As if that weren't bad enough, just a few hours later, the rickety old ship literally lost its stardrive in the middle of the middle of nowhere. To add insult to injury, Mykl's two remaining crewmen were killed in the explosion. Marooned alone in deep space, Mykl d’Angelo counted his blessings, offered prayers to any gods who specialized in miracles, and prepared to await (a) seemingly unlikely rescue or (b) a lingering death.

In the meantime, as though in answer to d'Angelo's pleas, a starship of the Imperial Space Fleet had been dispatched to investigate the mysterious silence of a remote starbase nearby. Rescue takes place, but at a price - taking into consideration Mykl d'Angelo's past service in the fleet and his not-insignificant knowledge and experience of Corsairs, he quickly finds himself re-activated in an advisory capacity.

Proceeding at full alert, the Antares prepared for the worst - that is, the probability that the lost starbase had been attacked and destroyed by Corsairs - space pirates who dominate the space lanes and whose bloody choke-hold on interstellar trade overshadowed the last 100 years of human history.

Seemingly by sheer coincidence, their paths cross with a legendary and fearsome Corsair - a man whose name sent shivers running down the spines of lesser men. Blachart. Blachart the Bloody.

Blachart is book one in the Galaxii Series by Christina Engela.

The world as Irvin knew it had blinked out of existence. Nothing of humanity had survived the cataclysmic "end of days." While the threat of complete destruction darkened the skies, Irvin struggled below. Minute by minute, he strove to come to terms with his loss of identity and feelings of isolation. His only companions and protection were from a small group of cyborgs, and his only hope was to adjust to his new reality and to wait for his family's promised return.

For Jonah, Felicity, and Dante, escaping Earth was easy compared to the labyrinth of existence they were forced to negotiate on the alien planet of Ogzek. They rapidly realized that their view of life would need to shift in a different direction if they were to avoid the many traps.

On Azadin, all the inhabitants desired was a new game of vast dimensions and thrills. The only person capable of delivering such an event was their grand designer Dante, but he was nowhere to be found. In his absence, Emperor Talus decides that nothing could be more exciting than to wipe-out the organics and have a space war.

Legend of Horian & the Dycentian Blade

By: Shah Jalal Jalal

Narrated by: Nigel Peever

Length: 10 hrs and 25 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release date: 18-11-19

Language: English

Publisher: Pro Audio Voices

Publisher's Summary

The Kingdom of Dycentia was tyrannized by the Dragonking. His supremacy unchallenged, no one was able to right the many wrongs, no one was brave enough to even try - until Horian rose from the shadows. How did this hero and his deep sense of duty save Dycentia?

Long ago in the distant Kingdom of Dycentia, storytellers sang the legend of one of their own: a hero the likes of which were only born in forgotten lands, in forgotten times. This Dycentian’s name was Horian, and although his life was cloaked in shadows, the secrets the storytellers sang have been passed down through the ages, known to only a select few and now preserved here so that they may never be forgotten.

The lessons of bravery and duty in Horian’s quest surpass even those of the Arthurian legends. Few could have survived the soul-seething journey he undertook to access the most awesome weapon on the face of the earth. Few could be entrusted with the responsibility of wielding such a sovereignty-seizing sword. However, it was only by wielding the Dycentian Blade that Horian would command the godly powers required to massacre the Dragonking, and to right the many wrongs that had been done.

Language: English

Publisher's Summary

Reluctantly, Sherlock Holmes agrees to assist Inspector Lestrade who is being hounded by an obnoxious nobleman whose jewel-encrusted dagger has gone missing. However, what Holmes initially believes to be a simple theft turns out instead to be his first encounter with a master criminal, who is as ruthless as he is brilliant and whom Watson dubs "The Merchant of Menace".

Soon, Holmes finds himself matching wits with a man who will steal anything - if the price is right. Moreover, this thief will go to any lengths, including blackmail and murder, to achieve his desired goal.

As Holmes comes to understand his adversary, he also begins to realize he can only react to the Merchant because he has no idea where this criminal mastermind will strike next. All Holmes knows for certain is the Merchant seems to specialize in priceless, one-of-a-kind articles. Will that be enough information for the great detective to outwit his foe?

From the British Museum to the Louvre to Blenheim Palace, Holmes finds himself in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. Set against the backdrop of early Edwardian England, the detective and his Boswell encounter an array of luminaries from the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough to a young Winston Churchill.

For fans of Conan Doyle's immortal detective, the game is always afoot. However, this time around, Holmes must try to bring to justice a villain who might well be the next Napoleon of Crime.

Summary

After gaining valuable experience as an aide to Governor Lord Horatio Hornblower, William Brewer is rewarded with a posting as first lieutenant on the frigate HMS Defiant, bound for American waters. Early in their travels, it seems as though Brewer’s greatest challenge will be evading the wrath of a tyrannical captain who has taken an active dislike to him. But when a hurricane sweeps away the captain, the young lieutenant is forced to assume command of the damaged ship, and a crew suffering from low morale.

Brewer reports their condition to Admiral Hornblower, who orders them into the Caribbean to destroy a nest of pirates hidden among the numerous islands. Luring the pirates out of their coastal lairs will be difficult enough; fighting them at sea could bring disaster to the entire operation. For the Defiant to succeed, Brewer must rely on his wits, his training, and his ability to shape a once-ragged crew into a coherent fighting force.

He is content to live out a contemplative life free from the scourges of power and politics that infatuate his peers. But, after answering a summons to the Palace - a sprawling, ever-expanding repository for Ingerval's ghosts - he finds himself at the heart of a dynastic struggle centuries in the making.Funerals are happy occasions in Ingerval, and the King is planning for his to be the most decadent in the country's long memory. He does not know that, unlike every lord before him, he will not return to rule alongside his ancestors. He 

will die the true death, sparking a succession crisis that throws the noble families into chaos. Amidst the violence and intrigue, Syphax alone asks, "What really happened to the King?" The deeper Syphax digs, the more he realizes these events are connected to others dating back to the founding of his father's dynasty.Let the games begin.

Admiral Horatio Hornblower has given Commander William Brewer captaincy of the captured pirate sloop El Dorado.

Now under sail as the HMS Revenge, its new name suits Brewer's frame of mind perfectly. He lost many of his best men in the engagement that seized the ship, and his new orders are to hunt down the pirates who have been ravaging the trade routes of the Caribbean sea. But Brewer will face more than one challenge before he can confront the pirate known as El Diabolito. His best friend and ship's surgeon, Dr. Spinelli, is taking dangerous solace in alcohol as he wrestles with demons of his own.

The new purser, Mr. Allen, may need a lesson in honest accounting. Worst of all, Hornblower has requested that Brewer take on a young ne'er-do-well, Noah Simmons, to remove him from a recent scandal at home. At 23, Simmons is old to be a junior midshipman, and as a wealthy man's son he is unaccustomed to working, taking orders, or suffering privations.

William Brewer will need to muster all his resources to ready his crew for their confrontation with the Caribbean's most notorious pirate. In the process, he'll discover the true price of command.

These are just some of the terrors you will encounter in Haunted Liverpool 30....

On the morning of the vernal equinox in 1899, Holmes is roused from his bed by Lestrade. The inspector has received a report of a girl brutally murdered at Stonehenge.

Upon arriving at the famed site, Holmes discovers the body of a young woman. On her forehead, painted in blood, is a druidic symbol. On her side, also in blood, is a message written in a strange language that neither Holmes nor Lestrade can decipher. The girl was also eviscerated and her organs placed around her body. As a final touch, branches from yew trees had been artistically arranged around the corpse.

Holmes senses a malevolent force at work, but without data, he is powerless. As the weeks pass, he slowly gathers information about the ancient druids and Celtic mythology and begins to assemble a small army of experts to assist 

him.

Expecting the killer to strike again on the summer solstice, Holmes and Watson travel to the Nine Ladies in Derbyshire, the site of another stone circle that harkens to druidic times. While they are holding their vigil, Lestrade and his men are off keeping watch over the stone circles at Avebury and several other locations.

The Great Detective's worst fears are realized when on the morning of the summer solstice, he learns that the body of a young man has been discovered in the eye of the White Horse of Uffington. Like the first victim, he too has been marked with a druidic symbol and his body bears a message. Aside from the symbol and the message, the only other difference appears to be that his body and organs have been surrounded by willow branches.

Realizing full well that a maniac reminiscent of the Ripper is on the loose, Holmes and Watson find themselves in a race against time as they try to locate the cult, identify the killer and prevent another tragedy.

Welcome to Haunted Liverpool 29, another spine-chilling collection of stories by Tom Slemen, a writer who has gained a cult following across the world. In this collection of over 40 sinister yet fascinating tales, Tom Slemen will tell you about the strange Vampire Cult which promised Eternal Life - in exchange for your blood - and soul and of the two mysterious self-styled vampire hunters that took on the cult. You will also be chilled by the accounts of a creepy parasite known as the Grave Worm, which has left cemeteries to seek living flesh because of the rise in cremation.

In this incredible book, you will also hear about the pregnant New Age traveller who turned into a werewolf before the eyes of the shocked and terrified midwives and nurses of a maternity ward. You will be fascinated by the case of two lovers who had known each other over many lifetimes stretching back to the Dark Ages, and you will also be intrigued by the witch who was hounded by doctors because she kept on curing their patients with her white magic.

You will also be enthralled and baffled by the weird case of the warning emojis which foretold death and tragedy on a 

woman’s telephone, and you will be enchanted by the vengeful tale of the League of Blondes. You will be captivated by the account of a weird creature that lives in a well under a Liverpool theater, and you will be shocked by the woman who gave a psychopathic lady a lift home, unaware of the terrifying unimaginable ride of her life she was soon to endure....

In Haunted Liverpool 29, there are stories about time-slips, bizarre bogeymen, ghosts, vampires, werewolves, witches, doppelgangers, occultists, time travellers, shape-shifters, weird killers, creepy dolls, parallel worlds, and there is even an appearance by Jack the Ripper!

An action & adventure mystery thriller

The Killer is the first in a series of three fast-paced fiction thrillers.

A story of espionage, suspense, and terrorism, following Darren/Butch McCann, whose adventures begin amid the bombings and violence on the war-torn streets of 1970s Belfast.

His survival depends on his ability to fight, he learns quickly and fights well. The Provisional Irish Republican Army attempt to recruit him, but he refuses to take sides - until a family tragedy draw him into the ranks of IRA and their cause.

Military training follows and he's found to be an excellent sniper and freedom fighter, but it is one night, and one brutal interrogation, which earn him a reputation as "The Butcher of Belfast", pairing him with his infamous knife, The Killer. 

Following a high-profile kill he's forced to flee Ireland and take refuge in Spain, where he becomes involved with an ETA paramilitary unit at their training camp deep in the Basque country. There, a thrilling and daring raid ensues, and strong alliances are formed with his new brethren.

The Provos, and an old friend, call him back to service. He performs his duty but, a moment of doubt convinces him that his home is now in the hills of Spain.

McCann knows he will always fight against the establishment. But, one British military intelligence agent has other ideas.

For as long as Lottie Fiske can remember, the only people who seem to care about her have been her best friend, Eliot, and the mysterious letter-writer who sends her birthday gifts. But now strange things and people are arriving on the island Lottie calls home, and Eliot's getting sicker, with a disease the doctors have given up trying to cure. Lottie is helpless, useless, powerless.

And then a door opens in the apple tree.

Follow Lottie down through the apple roots to another world - a world of magic both treacherous and beautiful - in pursuit of the impossible: a cure for the incurable, a use for the useless, and protection against the pain of loss.

Welcome to the Mirror Empires, where reality is distorted, and war threatens to engulf the world. It is 1898, and soldiers armed with the latest weapons clash with the unstoppable power of the Sky Lords and their aerial armadas in new and uncharted realms.

Jack never expected to spend his 19th birthday crashing a stolen flying machine into the middle of a war. But when he saw soldiers with bolt-action rifles up against an advanced species, he knew he’d found something incredible. As they storm Khartoum’s fortified city walls, Jack and the soldiers are transported to an impossible version of their own world. One where great cities rise up into the sky and are endlessly circled by flying warships crewed by beings never seen before.

As they set out to explore this strange land filled with violent tribes and vicious creatures, they uncover a brutal regime that takes slaves and technology from every mirror world they can find. Known as the Sky Lords, they are protected by legions of warriors who travel the skies in their flying warships, and they will stop at nothing to destroy the newcomers and retake the city that links the Mirror Empires together.

For Paul and Debbie it was meant to be the happiest time of their lives. A small village wedding in front of their family and friends, followed by a quiet honeymoon in Devon.

Not everyone had been happy to see them together. A woman from their past refused to accept it. Her actions over the previous year had ended in tragedy, and had almost broken the happy couple apart.

Now, away from it all in a picturesque log cabin, Paul and Debbie look forward to time spent alone together.... But she has found out where they are, and she will stop at nothing to make sure that the marriage is over...forever.

But Huntswood Cove isn't just a beautiful Devonshire fishing town, it has its own secret. Recently, people have begun to disappear, only to turn up dead in suspicious circumstances. The locals begin to question what is going on.

Soon everything strange points to the abandoned house in the woods. The house that nobody wants to talk about. To them, it is the place that never existed.

  • Release Date:05/04/2017

  • The book begins with a brief examination of the effect that the stories have had on modern crime literature. It goes on to examine the origins of the character of Holmes himself from his appearance to his drug use and supposed dislike of women. We then move onto a mini-biography of some of the significant characters in the series. Each of the original stories by Conan Doyle is examined in an effort to explain some of the more esoteric aspects and an examination is made of the attempts to form a proper chronology for the stories - as Doyle did not write the stories in strict chronological order. The second half of the book focuses on Holmes's career on the screen. There is a brief examination of some of the more notable actors to have portrayed Holmes and the films in which they appeared. Finally we look at the possible requirements for a definitive screen portrayal of the canon.

The Sensible Necktie and other stories of Sherlock Holmes

Written by Peter K Andersson

Narrated by Nigel Peever

Length 6 hrs 18 Mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date December 2016

Publisher MX Publishing


From the author of The Cotswolds Werewolf comes a new collection of Sherlock Holmes pastiches in the vein of Conan Doyle, revealing for the first time the secrets behind the theft of the hobnailed boots, the mysterious madness of the Right Honourable Wilfred Crabb, the case of the haunted public house, the curious and seemingly supernatural events surrounding a remote hotel on the east coast, and the truth behind the strange disappearance of Cyrus Thicknesse, the man in the sensible necktie. "I must say, Holmes, I am a bit surprised to see you taking an interest in something based on sympathy." "You do not think me sympathetic?" "Of course I do. But you have said yourself that it is the rational challenge and not the human aspect that draws you to your cases. Humans are mere factors in a problem, I think were your words." "Did I really say that? Hm, well, I am an odd sort, am I not?"
