About the Book:

So I was just trying to do my job when some weirdo cut through the bar wall with a laser, tied me up with ropes of light and kidnapped me. That was about the most normal part of my weekend. Since then, things have gotten weird. Turns out the whole kidnapping introduced me to the Shadow, the tangential dimension to our own where emotions are as physical as a blade and just as dangerous. Things live there, dark and terrible creatures with teeth made of hunger. The people who go there are worse. Gifted with strange, often bizarre abilities, they have their own agendas and uses for the Shadow. Unfortunately, I found myself at the centre of those agendas, hunted and courted by the different forces hiding the in the shadows. Finding my own path forced me to confront my own demons and led me to the unlikeliest of allies. Now, I just need to figure out how to use my own power before it drives me insane.

Author's Note:

Slide The Scales From My Eyes is my current 'big' novel. I'm currently working on submitting this to publishers, so any input is extremely welcome. It's based on a unique fantasy setting I've developed based on an emotional dimension to the world. It's the first of a planned series of urban fantasy novels that I hope will really stand out against the rest. As an aside, when writing a review, please tell me when you grind to a halt.
