Ahoy there and welcome to a very exciting giveaway here at Kendall Reviews. If you’ve been following along – June 1st, 2019 sees the release of my next novel The Stranger. A harrowing sprint through the woods of the campground, this is another tale I’ve written that will hopefully make you feel uneasy when in the forest.
In the lead-up, Gavin interviewed me about the writing of my previous releases, which has been great fun!
Part 1 – Jane: The 816 Chronicles & Invisible
Part 2 – Frostbitten & Left Hand Path
Part 3 – Wagon Buddy & YURI
Part 4 – Dim The Sun & The Girl Who Hid In The Trees (Available Monday 27th May.)
Now – with the impending release of my second full-length novel, we’ve teamed up to offer a very exciting and very special giveaway.
I’ve created 5 black versions of The Stranger. These black versions feature a full black gloss covering with the name simply stated on the front and on the spine. The book itself features the short story The Tooth Collector, which leads into the main novel The Stranger, as well as the exclusive hardcover short story EXCLUSIVE The Creator Awakens, written specifically for the release of the hardcover.
Additionally, I’ve written a brand new foreword which accompanies the standard foreword and have included an interview I did way back in the day when I was first welcomed at Kendall Reviews.
The first four of these books have been spoken for. I possess one, Gavin has one, David Sodergren has one, and my mother and father in law have one. Which means there is one left – one specifically available for you, dear readers!

Ahhh… nothing like the annual summer family camping trip, right?
Malcolm, his wife Sam and their two kids have been staying at the same cabin, at the same campground for years now. Heck, Malcolm’s been coming to the campground since he was a kid.
Miles and miles of groomed trails, hiking, kayaking on the pristine lake. What’s not to like?
But this year… well this year’s different. You see, roof repairs have caused them to have to change their plans. Now they’re staying at the cabin at the end of season, in fact they’re the last campers before it closes for the winter.
While happy to be spending time with the family, Malcolm feels a shift.
The caretaker next door makes it known he hates him.
The trees… move and dance, as though calling him, beckoning him.
Then on a seemingly normal kayaking trip, the family makes a discovery.
YOU TAKE FROM ME
I TAKE FROM YOU
Something’s out there, just on the other side of the fence. Malcolm’s positive it’s just the caretaker trying to scare him, teach the family a lesson.
But what if it’s not…
What if there is something out there?
The Stranger is the second novel from Steve Stred and 9th release overall. The Stranger is another offering following in the footsteps of similar books Invisible, YURI and The Girl Who Hid in the Trees. As Steve describes his works; “dark, bleak horror.”
With this release, Steve has decided to look deeper into what makes humans tick. He confronts two key elements of mankind; bigotry and our environmental footprint.
Featuring stunning cover art by Chadwick St. John (www.inkshadows.com), The Stranger will be a story that will leave you feeling uneasy and have you looking at the trees differently.
Maybe it’s not the wind making the branches sway…
