brother-frontThe day has finally come for Brothers! There have been a few delays with this particular book, but we are thrilled to announce that it has finally been released.

This debut novel from Marlena R. Smith is a tale of love and loyalty between brothers-in-arms – though it isn’t without its dark side. To give you a better idea of what to expect from this book, here is the blurb.


They see us only as numbers, as less than them, created to be Soldiers made to fight in their war. But we are more than that, we are brothers, we gave ourselves names.

Some of us will live through training, but some of us will die. Soldiers are there to be killed, whether from their tests or because we fail in our mission. Soldiers are there to kill, fighting in a war we didn’t ask for.

But even amongst brothers there are secrets. There is something that they are not telling me. My brothers tell me I’m special, but I just don’t see it. Soldiers are there to kill and be killed, so why am I so important? Brotherhood will be put to the test as we battle to be the best. I am a soldier, I was made to fight their war, I cannot lose.

Brothers is available from Amazon, our Etsy Store, Smashwords and other good retailers.

Not only are we celebrating the release of Brothers today, we are also getting excited about the next book in the Mysteries of Stickleback Hollow. All Hallows’ Eve in Stickleback Hollow is set for release on 20th March and is the latest instalment in the life of Lady Sarah Montgomery Baird Watson-Wentworth, and here to whet your appetite for the next cosy mystery is the brand new cover and the book blurb.


When her parents die from fever, Lady Sarah Montgomery Baird Watson-Wentworth has to leave India, a land she was born and raised in, and travel to England for the first time. Finding it almost impossible to adjust to London society, Sarah flees to the county of Cheshire and the country estate of Grangeback that borders the village of Stickleback Hollow. A place filled with oddballs, eccentrics and more suspicious characters than you can shake a stick at, Sarah feels more at home in the sleepy little village than she ever did in the big city, however, even sleepy little villages have mysteries that must be solved.

It’s all Hallows’ Eve in Stickleback Hollow and the annual ball at Tatton Park is being held. It’s Sarah’s first formal engagement since leaving London, and she isn’t looking forward to it – especially when the people she thinks of as friends are not invited. The veil between the spirit and living worlds is at its thinnest, and evil forces seem to be lurking everywhere.
