Long time lurker and first time poster here to the author sectionn of Kindleboards. I thought I'd do a quick post about the book I published on September 18th. Looking forward to making new friends and interacting with everyone here.


Patriots & Tyrants: A Black Shuck Thriller (Declan McIver Series)

"Ian Graham is one of the thriller genre's rising stars!"

- Stephen England (author of Pandora's Grave)

"Ian Graham writes the kind of stories I want to read. Full on, Action packed, adrenaline fueled. Keep your eye on this author, he's going to be a big name in thrillers before long."

- Matt Hilton (author of the Joe Hunter thriller series)

During the fall of the Soviet Union an elite team of operatives were trained on the steppes of Russia. Loyal to the Provisional Irish Republican Army, they were created for a single purpose; to bring about the downfall of the entire British government in one terrifying attack. They were known only by their codename, Black Shuck.

In the years that followed-betrayed from within by the internal power struggles of the IRA-the team members were hunted down. Forced into a battle for their lives, three survived, fading into the turbulent streets of Northern Ireland. To this day, their identities remain a mystery- but nothing can stay hidden forever.


Patriots & Tyrants is a suspense laden, action filled collection of stories featuring characters from the upcoming Black Shuck thriller series that follows former IRA volunteer turned American patriot, Declan McIver.

Can Mossad agent Abaddon Kafni capture an Iranian arms dealer?

Can former IRA volunteer Declan McIver stop a friend from being murdered in Boston's seedy underworld?

Can internationally feared assassin Torrance "AU" Sands succeed in killing a vicious cult leader?

Can Russian soldiers capture Chechen terrorist Ruslan Baktayev in the aftermath of the Beslan School Massacre?

"Ian Graham is gathering together a legion of fans for his gritty stories and it's not hard to see why. I recently met up with him in a new collection of short stories where both our works were featured, and I've kept an eye on him ever since. Here's a writer who won't let you down from book to book. He gets a 5-star recommendation from me."

- Joe McCoubrey (author of Someone Has To Pay)

"An extremely well researched thriller with exactly the right tone and pacing. The narrative and description just draws you right into the story."

- Andrew Scorah (author of Homecoming Blues)

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.
