Earlier this week, I had an opportunity to “sell” to a lady at a train station a copy of my book, Access Denied. She said she loved true stories and I warned her that people had told me that once they started reading it, they couldn’t put it down. She bought a copy of it right in front of me and downloaded it instantly to her Kindle.
The next day, I saw her again. “Oh my God! I couldn’t put it down!” She told me. There’s something very nice, very rewarding, about hearing that directly from the reader.
Access Denied – Available, autographed, and in eBook form, from my bookstore. Also available from all other good online bookstores.
Mind Blood is a brilliant little book of short stories – some had me thinking… One or two made me giggle and a few were quite impossible not to question if it could happen to you… or has it yet to happen?? So many little twists and lots of blood – my poor brain has had to have a holiday!! Well done to David for a book I can pick up again and again to quench my thirst of little short stories without having to leave the light on but keep me awake thinking… Drip Drip drip… Is anybody there? It’s just a book… Let your imagination run amok with this little gem of a book. Go on. I dare you.
This one doesn’t tell you what or how to eat, but rather gives you the experiences of more than a dozen different diets, allowing you an insight into each to enable you to choose the diet that’s right for you!
Based on real-life experiences, detailing the highs and lows of each diet, with a scoring mechanism for each, this book gives practical help and advice, along with some humorous tales, on a variety of diets and dieting.
Available at all good online bookstores in eBook and Paperback formats.
Unlike other diet books, this is an amusing, encouraging and refreshing approach to one man’s journey through the minefield of diets available. It details his frank, honest experiences of the diets and highlights some pros and cons of each to give you a better informed opinion of which would best suit you. I will be using this as a reference guide in my own quest to lose weight and get healthier and I hope to achieve the same success. – Kindle Customer
The Deeper Roots of Evil is already attracting some great, FIVE STAR reviews!
“After reading The Roots of Evil, the first in this sequel, I was eager to find out what was going to happen next in the creepy village of Ropely and the wonderful people that reside therein. My favourite being Dotty Dingle, a batty old lady with her shopping trolley who is rather central to the continuing saga. The author initially draws you into this book by concentrating on the characters and the personal relationships that arise between them, very cleverly making you form an emotional attachment to them before one by one they reach a grisly demise. Who will be left? What atrocity will happen next? Throughout the book you’re gripped with the notion that something dreadful is about to occur, so you have to keep reading but you’re scared to turn the page as you don’t know whose grim termination you’ll discover!! Exciting and horrifying in equal measures. Another page-turner from the amazingly gifted David E Gates. I’m already looking forward to the next in the series…” – Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 April 2020

“Fascinating to read about trees and how they can scare. The writing would sometimes set a tranquil mood then suddenly there would be a fright injection! Loved the story, and much praise for the author’s – David E Gates – imagination.” – Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 March 2020
“Incredible. I love horror books but this took gore to another level! With an engrossing story line and some shockingly brutal but brilliant content I could not put this book down. Finished it in 2 days but did not want it to end! Absolutely brilliant and would highly recommend but definitely not for the faint hearted!” – Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 August 2017
“The result of a fertile imagination and a very slightly twisted sense of the macabre, this is an enjoyable romp through a “Hammer-Horror” fest for the noughties……a novel that’s easy to pick up and get straight to the very heart of the story. Set in a small village (of the damned!) packed full of residents where underneath that wafer thin veneer of respectability lurks a grimy layer of secrets best left unsaid….until they come face to face with those secrets and the fate that awaits them. Highly recommended indeed!” – Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 March 2015
Most incredible audio book I’ve ever listened to. Planned to listen to an hour at a time, ended up listening to it all at once! Couldn’t drag myself away. Heart-breaking story, an emotional roller-coaster! Listening to the failures of the CMS [CSA] was almost unbelievable. To know it’s a true story made me angry and heartbroken for DAVID. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Access Denied by David E. Gates is available at Amazon in eBook, Paperback and Audiobook formats, at Smashwords in all other eBook formats, and at all good online bookstores.
An amazing and shocking story! This is a true example of real love and affection of a father to his child. I enjoyed this book a lot. Would definitely recommend it and make sure to have some tissues on hand because it gets really emotional.
Thank you David E. Gates for this great book and looking forward to read more of your stories.

Eric Barber works his way through the conditions of his father’s will, to secure a future fortune. But, in a remote village, the sins of lust, greed and envy of the inhabitants are disturbed by strange occurrences and disembodied evil that give way to shockingly graphic violence, intense horror and gore-laden revenge!
Such a good read. Spooky and a real page turner! Once I started it I couldn’t put it down. I love horror books and this one was fantastic! The fact that it is also set near where I am from makes it all the more creepy!
