Four action-packed stories , e-book & paperback.
The Dancing Boy
You are about to be taken to Afghanistan and discover the tragic story of a young boy sold into sexual slavery to a Taliban warlord and trained as a dancing boy.
The army had no use for Tom Gillet after he'd lost a foot in Afghanistan. If it hadn't been for a young Afghan kid called Shafiq, he would have lost his life. With his life turned upside down, and suffering from PTSD, Gillet's family life crumbles. Then, from an ex- army pal he discovers that Shafiq has been sold into sexual slavery to a Taliban warlord. Seeking one final fling Gillet grabs the opportunity to start his own personal war, and returns to Afghanistan in the hope of finding the boy. With his PTSD worsening, and betrayed by those closest to him, he begins to uncover the horrors of Bacha Bazi. Then a dramatic change of events take place when he receives news his son has been kidnapped by Al Qaeda and taken to the UK. While searching for his son he reveals the extent of sexual slavery present in his country and countless others.

Greed is good, if you live long enough to enjoy the money.

Trouble is, she doesn't like to lose, and those who pose a threat have a knack of meeting an untimely death.

Gaspar And The Fantastical Hats
Gaspar The Thief

Gaspar And The Fantastical Hats is currently free for Amazon Kindle. This humorous fantasy novella (28.5k words) has an average rating of 4+ stars (from 19 reviews) on Amazon US and is likely to appeal to fans of Terry Pratchett's Discworld. It is currently in the top 100 free fantasy on Amazon Germany. It's a prequel to Gaspar The Thief (126k words).

"It's a fast moving, humorous read. Very imaginative and off the wall. Good characterisation and dialogue. If you like Pratchett you'll like this story."

"There's the humour of Pratchett and a bit of Lieber's Mouser in Gaspar. Having read just about every author in the field, I don't have a lot of patience with authors who sacrifice good tight story telling with over worded thinly veiled preaching about the author's particular religious or political views. This is why I found Lindsay refreshing as it reminded me of pure story tellers like Lieber and Howard."

"I loved it! Totally charming. The characters have charm and personality, the plot (and plotting) is fun. It is witty and inventive. It's a 'visual treat' in the descriptive sense. Oh, and the cover - wonderful! A delightful read."

Life, Love, and Surviving High School
Claire makes an offer about Brent that Becca can't resist....

Becca's in high school, but she hasn't been on the same page as her best friends since just before the start of middle school and she doesn't know exactly how things got so different. Not different in some edgy, gritty, she's-a-rebel way. More of a Yes-she's-a-dork way. Which makes it all the more amazing that while other friendships have crashed and burned all around them the four of girls have managed to stay Best Friends Forever. She doesn't need to share in her friends' spotlight. Becca's happy to follow along in the shadows, as long as she's not totally cast aside.

She's definitely not ready for guys. In fact, she just wants to skip right over high school and jump straight to twenty-two. By then she figures she will have gotten through her first date, first kiss, passed her driver's test, taken the SATs, filled out all those college applications, somehow survived living in a dorm and gotten her college degree without all the anxiety and drama.

Instead, just after silently deciding to not even think about guys and concentrate on school work for the next four years, she is instantly mesmerized by Brent, a seriously great-looking senior who also happens to have a long-time girlfriend, Claire. Not one to be the "other woman," Becca imagines creative ways for Claire to be out of Brent's life.

Meanwhile, Becca forms a strictly friends-only relationship with Colt. Becca and Colt turn out be good partners when it comes to studying, taking pictures for the school newspaper and working on a term paper together.

But when one day Claire makes an offer about Brent that Becca can't resist, that changes everything.

Ms A. Scott meint:
The Years 'The Years' by Alexis Scott is a 'faction' novel - some would even call it the 'non-fiction novel' (see Wikipedia). The first chapter outlines, in graphic detail, the facts of Bloody Sunday on January 30th 1972 when fourteen men - many of them teenagers - were shot dead and twenty seven injured by British paratroopers. The rest of the story is part fiction, with fictitious characters but as impeccably researched as a history book. Told in the forceful language of Derry's streets, The Years is a roller coaster ride down forty years of the town's history. Francie, released from jail after a long sentence, is trying to come to terms with the changes peace has brought, as well as dealing with what he did - and didn't - do on Bloody Sunday.
Meanwhile, the unnamed paratrooper who killed a man on Bloody Sunday, is having to return to the nightmare he left behind decades earlier.
A deeply-moving and thought-provoking story, The Years is also a thundering good read. This is one of the best accounts you will ever come across of what really happened on Derry's Bloody Sunday but it is more than that: it is about personal responsibility and forgiveness.
Alexis Scott was born in Derry and was a teenager living there at the time of Bloody Sunday. She moved to Scotland in 1973 and trained as a solicitor there. Her other books include 'Eating Wolves', 'Hidden Histories', 'Deaconsbank', 'Affairs of State', 'Tough Times', 'Cuisine Americiane' and 'Martyrs and Other Stories'. Her first novel 'Eating Wolves' published in 2003 was praised by John Carey in the Sunday Times in October 2003 ('I prefer the novels that aren't on my Booker shortlist').

Sangre (Daughters Of The Rose Moon)

“Valeria, he told me he loves me” She gave a proud smile in acknowledging that miracle “We made love” Blissfully recalling those moments of magic “I left him sleeping in bed and went into the bathroom” Visibly showing Valeria the bane of despair, she pulled up her pink cotton tee shirt, “Then this, Valeria”.

Having to see Sangre’s flesh for what it is, Valeria placed hand over mouth, “Does he know?”

Sangre hated to admit the truth to anyone, but had to tell everything to Valeria, “When the sun rises” Inhaling the air, as if courage were in the wind, “He will”.

Valeria knew Sangre better than anyone. She’d seen the tears and fears of this young woman in all its’ vividness. Event of this night was the last thing she ever wanted Sangre to have to deal with, “My heart is with you, dearest one” Placing Sangre’s smooth hand in her wrinkled one, “Get some sleep and things will be as they should be in the morning”.

“I just wanted….” Sangre looked downward in a pause and said a trio of words she never thought would come from her lips, “…To taste life”.

“And, you have, sweet Sangre” Valeria stood up and lifted Sangre upward also. She softly spoke to her, “Rest your eyes and your mind”.

“You are right, Valeria. Everything will be as it should” Sangre hugged her and rested head on Valeria’s shoulder, “I love you”.

“I love you, Sangre” Returning that hug and letting her go gently, Valeria traced both thumbs along those tear stained cheeks.

Sangre nodded and retreated upstairs to her bedroom for rest and a smidgen of solace.

Wishing to wash away the fiasco under a shower head, Sangre turned the silver knob to release a stream of warm water.

Closing her eyes as that liquid splashed against skin, she thought about Brian. His kisses, kindness and smile gave Sangre pause in her decision to leave him sleeping.

Wondering whether things could ever be normal between her and any man, suddenly was answered in a most unusual way.

Placing her hands forward against the white shower tiles, she began to second guess herself.

Holding head down and slowly opening eyes, Sangre’s choice was crystallized, as a stream of crimson color swirled down the shower drain…end of excerpt

**************

Brian fell in love with a dream.

Yet, this dream was a nightmare, for this woman was not what she seemed.

Her name was “Sangre”.
