BD’s Big Diet Book

A different kind of diet book!

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 – FIVE STAR Reviews

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

Another FIVE STAR review for Access Denied

From Amazon:

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.

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!

Five star review for The Wretched!

Portsmouth By Heather Jennings on 25 May 2017

Very enjoyable read for some one who lives in the area and can relate to the places we are taken to. The fact that this is half fiction (or is it) makes it more of an interesting read.
