The Book Bazaar / FREE: Delusion and Dreams
« on: June 06, 2013, 12:55:06 PM »
My new book, Delusion and Dreams, is now available on Kindle! It's a collection of short stories.

Here's the blurb:

"Twelve stories of betrayal, greed, revenge, deception, dreams, and courage.

We all struggle to find our way. What you see isn't necessarily all there is. This collection takes you into the grey area, because the world is never just black and white.

Life is all about perspective. One person's delusion is another person's dream."

The Book Bazaar / Coincidences by Maria Savva
« on: July 27, 2012, 12:43:03 PM »
My latest release is the 2nd edition of my very first novel, Coincidences.



Here's the blurb: Secrets, lies and coincidences abound in this story of a young girl looking for her father. Alice, now twenty-one years old, is determined to find her father who left home when she was just a baby, despite a warning from her mother that she should not look for him. Her mother's secretiveness over the subject is because of the guilt she feels about keeping the truth from Alice. It will take all of Alice's courage to persevere in her search. There are doubts and uncertainties at every turn. Coincidences is a story about following your dreams and staying on the path no matter how difficult the circumstances may become.

This book will be FREE to download from 23rd-25th September! Enjoy :)

The Book Bazaar / The Dream by Maria Savva
« on: July 21, 2011, 12:25:15 PM »
Hi, I'm very pleased to announce the release of my latest novel.  The Dream is a paranormal, time slip novel containing elements of mystery and romance.  Here's the blurb:

Lynne cannot shake her feelings of dread; her dreams tell her she is making a terrible mistake, she must not marry Adam. But, how can she believe the dream? Lynne and Adam have shared their lives for three years now. She is certain she loves him. It is not that love, which her dream warns against. It doesn't matter that she loves this man she will soon marry. If she marries him, the voice in her dream says her soul mate will die. Her true love will perish. Soon, Lynne's world is transformed and becomes almost unrecognisable, except for the déjà vu. Time doesn't seem to mean much anymore, and things are not quite as they seem. As her world spins out of control, Lynne must sort out what's real and what isn't to fulfill her destiny.

The Book Bazaar / Cutting The Fat by Jason McIntyre and Maria Savva
« on: February 01, 2011, 06:02:27 AM »
My new novella, a murder/mystery, co-written with author Jason McIntyre is now available on Kindle for just $0.99

It started off as an impromptu online novel.

Here's the blurb: Nestor Maronski is the world's most notorious book reviewer, meticulously crafting his scathing critiques every week for the Daily Post. The massive Maronski fortune allows vile-tempered ol' Nessie to become a puppetmaster in countless other arenas, all of which are dedicated to his passion for desecrating the careers of independent authors everywhere. Now a myriad band of such wronged writers has glommed upon one scary idea: kill Nestor Maronski...but only after he's made to suffer

If you want to find out more about the book and how it was written, here's a link to an interview Jason and I did on author Darcia Helle's blog: http://quietfurybooks.com/blog/2011/01/cutting-the-fat/

The main character, Nestor Maronski, can also be found on Twitter and Facebook :)

The Book Bazaar / Pieces of a Rainbow by Maria Savva
« on: December 27, 2010, 05:49:13 AM »
My short story collection 'Pieces of a Rainbow' is available on Kindle for just $0.99/£0.72 until 1st Jan.

'Pieces of a Rainbow' is a collection of seven short stories, each one based on a different colour of the rainbow. You will find a full spectrum of emotions within the stories. Some are sad, some uplifting. There are not always happy endings, but the tales reflect the real world, and the forces of nature at work in our lives; sometimes beyond our control. The stories are diverse in style, and the characters, although fictional, are true-to-life. There is something for everyone in this inspired collection.

The Book Bazaar / A Time to Tell by Maria Savva
« on: December 27, 2010, 05:42:14 AM »
Here's the blurb:
Set between the 1950s and the late 1990s, "A Time to Tell" is the poignant story of Cara, from her dramatic attempted suicide to her roles as a smitten eighteen-year-old, unmarried mother, wife, widow and grandmother, and her final, passionate reunion with the man she has always loved. It is also the parallel tale of Cara's prodigal son Benjamin and his daughter Penelope, whose unhappy relationship with her father has led her into marriage with a man whose own dysfunctional family have turned him into a person who at first seems strangely attractive, but turns out to have a dark and terrifying side...Rich in colourful characters and pertinent social themes, "A Time to Tell" is an eventful and often disturbing tale of the pain and pleasures of family relationships.

Here's a link to a book trailer i made for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4U24Y1pqU88
