#Stranded by Stuart James #BlogTour @BOTBSPublicity @StuartJames73 @Bloodhoundbook

I am super excited to be kicking off Blog Tour today for Stranded by Stuart James. Which is out today.

A family trapped. A psychopath on the loose. Let the game begin…

What could be more innocent than going on holiday?

As a family drive along a quiet country lane on their way to the airport, they meet a stranger standing alone in the middle of the road.

Steering them along another path, he tells the driver, Ben, that a tree has fallen and there’s no way through.

But as they make their way along the diverted route, they come across a coach blocking the road.

Getting out of the car Ben goes to investigate and is horrified to find the passengers tied to their seats.

Then a discarded phone starts to ring…

If Ben calls the police, everyone on board will die.

Let the horrific game begin…

My Thoughts

Holy smoke….Stuart is on fire with this jaw dropping nail biting read. Having read all of the authors novels, each one gets better and better. But this one…..wowsers. I cannot begin to tell you how freaking awesome it is. The author doesn’t give you chance to catch your breath with all the twists and turns and OMG moments. Even on the very last page. Which I so wasn’t expecting it totally blew my mind.

Stranded will have you on tender hooks from start to finish. When we follow a story that starts off with has a family holiday. But nothing is never what it seems with Stuart James. Throw the movie Speed and Shuttle into the mix and you have Stranded. It will certainly chew you up and spit you out.

I love a story that is dark and twisted that pulls you sideways. With some unexpected twists…. WOW WOW WOW. I couldn’t put it down I found myself totally addicted. I felt like I was watching a movie.

The characterisation is brilliant you can feel the tension and the emotion. I even had a lump in my throat with one scene. Stranded is without a doubt a white knuckle ride of a read. A story that is brilliantly told. My absolute favourite book by Stuart who has totally smashed it.

This is a must read for thriller/horror fans. I cannot recommend is book enough giving it all the stars.

Massive thank you to Sarah Hardy for inviting me to take part on what is going to be an epic tour.

Author Bio:

I have always loved scary stories, especially ones that shocked me, left me terrified, looking under my bed or in the wardrobe before going to sleep.

There was just a fantastic buzz whenever I watched or read something that took my breathe away.

I remember going to my nan’s house in Ireland as a youngster with my mother and sister, on the West Coast, staying in a cottage, surrounded by miles of fields and my family sitting around the table in the kitchen at night telling ghost stories. Going out and exploring derelict farmhouses in the middle of nowhere. I remember clearly the field at the end of the road was supposed to be haunted by headless nuns.

My cousins often remind me of the great times we had, frightening each other and running for our lives whenever we’d see something that didn’t look right.

This is why I love nothing more than to tell a story.

I started writing three years ago, penning The House On Rectory Lane which has just won The International Book Award in horror fiction. I got the idea from something that has often seemed scary to me. I know that a terrifying story has to be something that you’re frightened of doing, something that makes the hairs stand on the back of your neck, something that fills you with dread, yet also with excitement.

To me, the thought of going to a house in the middle of nowhere, upping and leaving a busy town and moving to the country is something that scares lots of people and me: the seclusion, the quiet, the darkness. That’s what inspired me to write my first novel.

My second thriller is called Turn The Other Way, which was a world wide number 1 best seller and stayed at number 1 for 19 weeks in the US.

I have multiple stories running, past and present. A family who want answers from the surgeon responsible for their daughter’s death. A young woman looking for her parents after they go missing from a party. A couple driving home and hearing screams for help from the back of the van in front of them. A serial killer on the loose in North London, dragging victims off the street.

I’m so grateful when people not only read my thrillers but also take the time to get in touch and leave a review. To me, that is the greatest feeling, hearing from people that have enjoyed my work. I know then that I’m doing something right.

My third thriller, Apartment Six, was published in January of this year and was a number 1 hot new release on Amazon for 4 weeks.

Stranded goes on pre-order Monday October 12th on Amazon and is released October 19th.

I’m 47, married and have two beautiful children. Currently, I’m a full-time plumber but would love nothing more than to make a living from my writing. I hope I write stories and people continue to enjoy them for years to come. That would be completely amazing and a dream come true.
