Mysteries and Strange Events by Drew Jones Book Tour and Giveaway :)

Mysteries and Strange Events – Nine Short Stories
by Drew Jones
Genre: Mystery 

Mysteries and Strange Events Volume One brings together an evocative debut collection of nine short stories from the author Drew Jones. They are fantastically wide ranging in subject, and includes Jaguar cars, railway accidents, strange salvage operations, commercial espionage, greed, science fiction and ghosts - and every reader will find a favourite within the book. They will all make him stop, think, and question. This amazing mix is completed with some light humour as the flamboyant sleuth – Mr Theodore Halfpenny, makes his first appearance.

This irresistible book will be your perfect companion as you commute to work, struggle through a long haul flight, or just to keep at the side of the bed after a long day.

WOW.  This is one great anthology of stories.  I used to love to read the old Scary Stories books all the time, and this in a way reminded me of those but in a contemporary way.  I think my favorite would have to be the story about Mrs Mayfield called "Care" and Killing.  I wasn't quite expecting what happened in that one, but by far it was so much fun to read and to see the horrible person get what is really coming to them :)  And a lot of these stories have the theme where evil meets evil but the better evil wins out ... if that makes sense?  My second favorite would be the first story, The Returning 4.2 - of course it's about a car that appears to be driven by no one, kind of reminiscent of Stephen King's Christine, but very different in that it doesn't just punish the owner's haters.  And I would have to say my third favorite would be Journey of All The Dead, a mysterious story surrounding the thousands of miles of old forgotten railways in Britain.  If you are a fan of Supernatural shows or stories, then you must read this - it is fantastic and I cannot WAIT for the second installment :)

My name is Drew Jones and enjoy writing about mysterious and strange events. Some of my ideas are derived from my interest in classic cars, military airfields and the paranormal. I normally write in my study in Wales with my Labrador dog Monty at my feet, and many ideas and plots are thought through on our walks together in the woods. There are lots of ideas buzzing in my head, many involving our sleuth Theodore Halfpenny, who will appear in Mysterious and Strange Events Volume 2 - which I hope to start work on soon!
I have really had fun putting this collection together – so I hope you have enjoyed them too. Perhaps you have read them on your commute to work, on a plane as you travel towards your holiday, or as a quick read at the end of a long day.
As with all authors, I would be grateful if you would leave a review on Amazon – it only takes a second, and is always much appreciated.
It would be very nice to hear from all my readers, so if you would like to contact me personally, please email at:

Hi - I’m Drew Jones, and I live in the wilds of West Wales! I have a wonderful golden Labrador called Monty – who usually lays at my feet while I write in my study. He is great company and many plots and stories are conjured up while we walk in the woods together. I have quite diverse interests including collecting military memorabilia, cars, and British Cinema. These, combined with meeting equally diverse people from my work at a university and in the security business, have all combined to give me a wonderful library of characters and ideas for my stories. In Volume One of Mysteries and Strange Events, I have introduced the character Theodore Halfpenny. I have great ideas and plans for him – so do watch out for him as he will be making another appearance soon. As my work is in the form of short stories, it is difficult to imagine them as a movie – but I think A Sign of Danger might make an exciting movie and Solitude perhaps a more intriguing piece. Not forgetting the wonderful Theodore of course – I think you could have a lot of fun with him in a movie.
