To celebrate the summer and winter solstice, I’m pleased to announce that Glimpses, my first collection of short stories, is free to download on Kindle from 21st – 25th June 2018.
Glimpses allows the reader a peek into the lives of everyday people who are about to have life lead them on an unpredicted path. From a mysterious deadly iPad app, to a hole in a fence that is not all it seems, to a strange lipstick that appears to have a life of its own, Glimpses takes the reader on a roller coaster of a ride full of twists and turns.
If you are a lover of shows such as ‘The Twightlight Zone’ and ‘Black Mirror’, then you’re in for a real treat with this first collection of short stories.
Here are three five-star reviews already in for Glimpses.
In his introduction, Roberts describes a childhood fascination with The Twilight Zone and Tales of the Unexpected. His enjoyment of tales with a twist plays out in this debut collection of 28 short stories that I’d lump together into the broad category of speculative fiction. The stories range from sweet (Last Train to Aldwych) to sinister (Lipstick), from humour (Blackout) to horror (Needles). The wide variety makes this an easy and enjoyable collection to read in one sitting or visit when time allows. Highly entertaining. – D Wallace Peach
Beautifully dark and yet made me smile so much. Fabulously written. Couldn’t help but stop, take a moment and really think about each story. Smile and continue. Loved it. The Truth App, I Believe in Father Christmas, What if Summer Never Arrives, Ticket to ‘Where?’ and The Fence, are my favourites. Considering they are short stories, the images conjured are exquisitely detailed. Bravo, I say! – Dawn Shepherd
Glimpses is a delightfully twisted set of short stories inspired by author Roberts’ blog. If you follow his blog, you may recognize a few of his terrifying tales reminiscent of stories in the sci-fi genre of Twilight Zone or Outer Limits peppered with a dash of horror. “The Truth App” is the piece de resistance in this collection of 28 stories. Roberts’ biting wit and deft tale-telling will have you reading on the edge of your…well, your reading device! A great read that will have you begging Roberts for more! – Terri Webster Schrandt
Reformatted by David Cronin, Moyhill Publishing, the inside of Glimpses has a brand new look.
