The Bringer - Samantha Towle

Bio: Samantha Towle lives in Yorkshire with her husband Craig, children Riley and Isabella, dog Max and cat Murphy. She loves music - all music - and dreams of a day when …. now that's another story. Her first book, 'The Bringer' was published by Night in May 2011. Her second, 'A Single Bite' will be published later in the year.

Death is sad, love is agony.

Max was her next job. She got his name just before he died and it was for her to lead his soul to heaven. She was a Bringer. Then Max started pleading, but not for himself, for his son, James. Would she look after him, would she comfort him as he grieved for the loss of his father? James was a sensitive young man. He would take his father's death hard. Well, Bringers don't do that sort of thing; their exclusive role is to usher souls to heaven. They are not allowed to get involved in earthly affairs. However, when she saw James, she felt something she had never felt before – an emotion, a shock. She was a Bringer. Bringers do not have emotions. Yet she couldn't help herself. She found herself being drawn inexorably towards James and his life, against every instinct she had ever had, against every law of the universe. And she fell in love.

For a Bringer, that is a terrifying fall.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
It’s different to other ‘angel’ books out at the moment. It’s full of twists and turns, and I think readers will identify with Lucyna, and her naivety when she finds herself in falling love with James.

Q: Why did you go indie?
It allowed me to retain creative control over my novel.

Q: Who are your favourite authors in your genre?
I have many favourite authors covering different genres, but Charlaine Harris is my favourite in my genre.
‘Many times I felt a tear coming on, but this is certainly no slushy Mills and Boon romance. This is a solid, rock you to the core, epical storyline and I urge you to read it. Highly Recommended. 5 Stars is the maximum, but I would definitely give The Bringer 105 stars.’
‘The twists are not in any way predictable, that is the beauty of the work. Samantha Towle leads you and invites you in wonderfully written prose, and a writers voice that lingers like good music in the soul, you are smiling, anticipating ... perhaps very sure that you have cleverly deduced the ending. You will in all probability be wrong. I had the rug pulled from under my certainty, and she did it without flinching.’

  1. I've read The Bringer - it kept me up at night, flipping the virtual pages of my kindle. Loved it :)
