BOOK EXCERPT for Jazzy Book Reviews

Excerpt from psychological thriller The Penance List by S C Cunningham for Jazzy Book Reviews

The moment seven year old David changes from sweet choirboy to psycho killer. Love the boy, but fear the man he becomes.

Heddington Hall School, Berkshire

His beauty was a curse. Even though he knew it was coming, his throat retched every time he heard his name summoned in assembly.

“And lastly, would David Howard report to the Headmaster’s study, directly after choir practice!” bellowed the Assistant Head to the army of three hundred bored, shuffling schoolboys that stood before him.

5* BOOK REVIEW by Rockin & Reviewing Books - The Penance List by S C Cunningham

It always worries me when I fall deeper and deeper into a creepy and sinister plot while vastly enjoying the experience.  I fear there may be something wrong with me to become so enthralled and transfixed on such a twisted and disturbing story.  But in my defense, this superbly penned stunner quickly mesmerized me and held me in thrall with razor-sharp and well-crafted writing.  The storylines were ingenious and compelling, cleverly insightful, and often witty and amusing.

The Penance List by SC Cunningham starts out with a scene to make your toes curl.

5☆ BOOK REVIEW by Dash Dan Books

A Raunchy Thriller I Couldn't Put Down!

A raunchy Thriller that contains Murder, sex, violence, prostitution, secrets, lies, stalking and friendship.

I absolutely loved reading this Taut Psychological Thriller.
It was a tantalising, dark deliciously twisty thriller that built up suspense along the way.

Never quiet knowing when the stalker was about to strike. This book does contain sensitive issues and graphic scene liciously twisty thriller that built up suspense along the way. Never quiet knowing when the stalker was about to strike.

WRITING - How I Build Fictional Characters

BUILDING FICTIONAL CHARACTERS by Author S C Cunningham

When building a fictional character I draw from observations of people I know or have closely watched, it’s easier to write from truth.  Luckily, I’ve worked in a few fascinating industries, where I have been able to study a wide range of characters.

WRITING - Book Signing

I love signing my books, writing a special personal note to the reader.

It is especially easy with ‘The Deal’, because I sense with this book that if someone reads it and likes it, they are a little moon-crazy like me.

If they like ‘The Deal’, they have the courage to believe that there is something else out there looking out for us, and in these senseless troubling times this is a good feeling to have.

If they like ‘The Deal’, I feel that they have a good heart, kind soul and powerful energy. They trust that our knowledge just hasn’t caught up with the science of it yet.

WRITING Book Bloggers, we need them.

Thank goodness for Blogging Book Reviewers... they help connect readers with writers.

And single-handedly keep the book industry turning whilst sorting out the Good, the Bad and the Ugly ... (that western theme tune just whistled through my head, love a good western, met Clint Eastwood once... oh what a man!... a voice!... (sigh)... sorry I digress!).

WRITING Every Author Needs an Author Team

Every successful Author needs a strong Author Team, a book family.

I write hot thrillers and paranormal romance novels, I expected writing books to be a lonely reclusive existence, but I was SO wrong… it’s a team effort. Delivering a book to the world is a job of three parts; writing, editing and marketing. The writing can indeed be pretty lonely. A mushroom-like existence, living in the dark, tweezing through hair-pulling spaghetti storylines, battling with word choices, eating dodgy food, keeping late nights and talking to yourself like a crazy person.

Domestic Violence… a step away from murder.

My pet hate is a cowardly bully, I’m putting this information out there to let victims know that they are not alone; when they are ready there is help.

Sadly, abuse from a partner or ex-partner is very common and can easily spiral out of control, affecting both men and women. What starts out as a seemingly happy healthy relationship can turn into smothering-hellish-quicksand, leaving the victim shaking their head asking ‘how the hell did I get here?’

If you suffer from abuse, or know someone who is, there are many agencies set up to help. See links below.

WRITING Is it ok to have just ice cream for supper?

Is it ok to have just ice cream for supper?

Phew! a great day’s writing, but I get lost in my characters and forget the normal things in life, like shopping, cooking, brushing my hair and maintaining the basics.

Last night, I had ice cream for supper… a whole pot! Is that a bad thing? Is there an ice cream police? Who made these rules anyway?
