To celebrate the first anniversary of the release of my most successful novel to date, for five days only, you can download Children of the Folded Valley absolutely FREE from Amazon (see link below):
Here is the blurb from the back of the book:
During a journey to visit his estranged sister, James Harper recalls his childhood growing up in a mysterious valley cut off from the outside world, as part of a cult called the Folded Valley Fellowship.
In this seemingly idyllic world, the charismatic Benjamin Smiley claimed to be protecting his followers from an impending nuclear apocalypse.
But the valley concealed a terrifying secret.
A secret that would change Smiley’s followers forever.
Children of the Folded Valley is a gripping and dramatic mystery with a “light” science fiction edge.
The novel has been very well reviewed. Here is a sample of the many raves:
“I don’t usually leave reviews but I felt so strongly about encouraging people to read this fantastic book. It had me captured from start to finish. At one stage in the book I actually thought it was a true story.” – Paul, Amazon.
“The use of re-written religious doctrine to control, govern and frighten is particularly chilling… Full marks to Simon Dillon for this creative and highly readable novel.” – Around Robin, Amazon.
“I was captivated… I didn’t want to put it down and just kept trying to find time to squeeze in a chapter… It just gets better and better as you read it and you find yourself needing to know what happened.” – Hannah, Goodreads.
“Creepy and unnerving. Kept me gripped the whole way through.” – Lucyboo, Amazon.
“I couldn’t put it down.” – Bukky, Amazon.
“Really well written, well thought through, compassionate… Full of empathy.” – Over, Amazon.
“So well written, you could believe it was a memoir.” – Shelley, Amazon.
“A perturbing and very original story… The ending is magnificent.” – Joan, Goodreads.
