SKY BLUE SKY

by

MARK WARFORD

AUDIOBOOK OUT NOW EXCLUSIVELY AT AUDIBLE

Thomas Edward Muir is no drifter. He flies cargo in the islands; he rides motorcycles in the desert. Muir sails and he dives and.., Yeah, he's that guy.

But life is about to kick him in the teeth. He's gonna meet a monster. Pure evil. He's gonna witness the darkest side of human suffering.

And it's gonna rock his world. And he's gonna struggle with that.., 'Cause he's that guy.

From the balmy, indigo waters of the Caribbean sea to the searing heat of the Sahara desert, the face of modern slavery is revealed in all of its repulsive glory. Thomas Muir will be awakened to the horror as karma's unrelenting grasp forces an inevitable and impossible decision: for a decade of grief to be avenged, a descent into madness is assured.

Sky Blue Sky is a first-rate, edge-of-your-seat thriller that scales the highest peaks of entertainment and compassion and love and adventure. At times brutal; at times wildly atmospheric, but always unflinchingly honest.

ALSO AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK, EXCLUSIVELY AT AMAZON

SAYS WHO?

MARK WARFORD

The gripping, emotive, cinematic sequel to Sky Blue Sky.

AUDIOBOOK OUT NOW EXCLUSIVELY AT AUDIBLE

Revenge is grief upended, only with penance served can atonement begin.

From the tranquil moors of southern England; to the Caribbean's steamy shores; to the sweeping African plain, the moral compass is set to spin off its axis. For Thomas Edward Muir, evil is not illusory, it is the debasement of young lives; it is the slaying of the innocent; it is the eradication of family. "Surrender..," he is told, "...is the way of the world." The sequel to Sky Blue Sky subverts and energizes the tired conventions of the modern action thriller with an extraordinary tale born of lands distant and minds altered, and provides the only truly dignified response... "Says Who?"

THEN CAME.., ME?

by

MARK WARFORD

Between celebrity and invisibility; where the most unlikely become the most extraordinary - I think that's worth a closer look.

tcm-WORDS-bglogo-72.jpg

"From deserts to mountains; from the busy metropolis to one-stoplight towns, 'Then Came.., Me?' is a contemporary road movie in its purest sense - grand views of an ever-changing world; a little risk; a little romance; and talking to people that embrace a sense of their own fragile, but critical accountability - which rules out the majority of the media, all members of the religious glitterati, any politician that adheres to a path of self-interest as a pathological birthright, the over-compensated, the under-informed and, of course, bad actors all.

Who's left? I'll show ya...

For most of us, our internal dialogue is both vital and annoying in equal measures, so it’s only fitting that I should be accompanied / plagued / entertained by a nagging conscience in the form of two animated characters, Lord Quest and Mouche. I mean.., why not?”


SUPERMASSIVE SUPERSTAR

by

COMING IN 2019

supermassive-novel-portrait.jpg

If you thought ROCK 'N ROLL was all about the music, you went to the wrong show.

Seven is a lucky number. Well.., maybe.., for some. For a rock 'n roll band like The Supermassives it’s the perennial symbol of chaos and calamity - a winged chariot and the Hindenburg; a spoonful of caviar and a plate of fish 'n chips. From the backstreets of nowhere, to the stage doors of everywhere, Beecher Stowe has a dream and he has talent and he has six musical, misfit mates that want in - at any cost. And then along comes a woman, with her sun-bleached hair and her sun-shaded eyes and her Bardot lips and a secret so intense that it could eradicate the very essence of Rock 'n Roll. 

Plug in to a hilarious, irreverent roller-coaster ride from bedrooms to bars to stadiums to bars to bedrooms. Supermassive Superstar is a novel that transcends decades of volatile friendships and liquid excess and questionable fashion and lethal drugs and kick-ass rock 'n roll, and is responsible "for the single most enjoyable time I've had writing anything."  MW.


Excerpt: Supermassive Superstar, Coming Fall 2019

“All I know is that here and now you can be hated for-

Your money;

Your religion;

Your beauty;

Your ability;

Your opinion;

Your weight;

Your success;

Your failure;

Your accent;

Your race;

Your color;

Your possessions;

Your illness;

Your empathy;

Your compassion;

Who you love;

Who you don’t love;

Your age;

Your friends;

And your vision.

In fact, you can be hated for all that you are.

Of course, the flip side of that list is that you can be loved for exactly the same.”

Beecher Stowe, Musician.

“Between celebrity and invisibility stands you and me. We’re everywhere. And it’s clear we can’t get enough of each other.

Between the ground and the heady altitude of six feet or so above the earth, we manage to spread joy, discontent, love, hate, and every wondrous and evil emotion imagined. It’s a wonder there’s any air left to breathe down here. Thankfully we can be as much of an inspiration to each other as we can be a pain in the ass.

And we’re on the move. Constantly. Wandering. Creating. Building. And destroying. But the magic is there. Everyday. In the heartland. On the open road. In the city and out on the ocean blue. We’re good at what we do and when we decide that something shall not remain so - it very often doesn’t.  And more often than not, one person is all it takes.”
