“The Rescue” – a brand new FREE short story!

“Your brother ain’t here lass,” the man spat, stepping towards her. “And this time you are going for a swim.”
There was a snap and a shocking blur of motion as an arrow tore from the thick summer foliage behind the girl and embedded itself in the approaching man’s thigh. The missile buried itself in the muscle so hard that it knocked him off his feet and he screamed in agony as the excited dogs began barking and straining at the ropes that tethered them to the big cart.
In contrast, the great brown bear in the cage looked on in silence.
“My brother is here, lad,” Marjorie hissed, eyes moving from the fallen man to his stunned companions. “And so are his friends.”

Knight Of The Cross-pb-eb-des2

I’ve got some spare copies of my novella Knight of the Cross here, just hanging around smoking and drinking cider and acting like unruly teenagers so I thought I’d try and find them a good home.

Happy Easter – FREEBIE again!

Happy Easter/ spring/ rebirth festival to everyone, whatever your leanings or faith! How better to celebrate the day than reading about a knight of God banishing ancient evil – topical eh, since today is all about nature seeing off winter?

Knight of the Cross is again FREE on Kindle today so if you missed it last time, get your copy now. I believe this offer is open WORLDWIDE, check your local Amazon page to see. Don’t forget the audiobook (available from Audible and iTunes) is only about £3 if you like that format.

If you like a bargain, keep your eyes open because both Wolf’s Head and The Wolf and the Raven will be on sale this month, around the middle and the end of the month. I’ll post about it nearer the time.

Have fun rolling your painted eggs!

Another new review with a GIVEAWAY!

Here’s another fantastic review of Knight of the Cross, this time by Stuart S. Laing from The Review blog group. If you leave a comment after the review you’ll be entered into a giveaway to win a signed copy of the paperback. What are you waiting for?!

“One aspect of this book which is wonderfully refreshing is how McKay uses modern folklore, created by the Internet generation, in such a way that it feels like genuine legends from the medieval age. Just as our ancestors once gathered around their fire-pits in roundhouses to tell stories through the long, dark winter nights, the Internet has become its modern equivalent where 21st century folklore is spawned and spread until it becomes familiar to many. ”
