Fables Freebie!

The fabulous Crime and SF news and reviews site Murder Mayhem and More  is running a giveaway on Facebook for a Fables and Fabrications  extract as below!   *Note – you need to go to this Murder Mayhem and More page to enter!

FABLES & FABRICATIONS by Jan Edwards is out this week. To celebrate its publication, we have an exclusive prize-draw competition to ‪#‎win‬ an‪#‎ebook‬ edition of ‘Midnight Twilight’ – one of the 14 tales of mystery, mirth and the macabre included in this anthology.
Who is the distant figure who drives his sled across the arctic snowscape in the midnight hour? Is he man or myth? Find out in the bitter chill of isolation in ‘Midnight Twilight’
Like and/or Share the post over at  the Murder Mayhem and More page and you’ll be in with a chance to win.

In Fables & Fabrications, Jan Edwards leads us through a world where nothing is as it seems, from the arctic wastes of Norway to a fun-filled evening at the fair. Shape changers, ancient spirits and crafty cats all play their crucial parts in stories that unsettle and disturb the reader’s perception.

Chosen from Jan’s back catalogue of horror and dark fantasy, these stories are collected here for the first time in one volume, enhanced by a sprinkling of verse. ‘Midnight Twilight’ is just one of these tales – and it’s one you could win…

This is a worldwide draw. Competition closes midnight 6 May 2016.
Good luck! Come back and check on May 7th and 8th to see if you’ve won.
