Book Signing

Michael Cross signs his new book Freedom from Conscience - Deliverance from Evil.

Saturday September 20, 11.00 at The English Bookshop, Lilla Nygatan 11, Gamla stan


    'Vincent, a charismatic older man, is on a quest; he seeks revenge for a horrific tragedy he suffered years earlier. His lust is only satisfied through making mankind into his prey. Melanie Lindberg is a research psychologist who has left her violent past behind and lives an idealic, although unconventional, life with her loving family.
    Melanie and Vincent's paths intersect when he rips her away from those who care for her...desiring to make her his own. Will she succumb to Vincent's mesmerizing charm and become his loyal companion in terror or will she have the power to resist him? This epic battle of wills reaches a surprising climax which will forever change Melanie's life.'

Freedom from Conscience - Deliverance from Evil by Michael Cross

Book launch - The Year in Stockholm

Book launch The Year in Stockholm

In his new book, The Year in Stockholm, the author Kim Loughran shows us Stockholm in a new and different way. Through the four seasons we get to know the city and the people who live here. He tells us about the beauty of the islands that it is built upon and the surrounding water. But he also tells us about the inhabitants and their daily life and curious habits.

With an abundance of beautiful photos this is the perfect book for anyone interested in Stockholm.

Kim Loughran was born in Australia. Since then he has lived in many countries and he is now a Swedish citizen. His previous book The Year in Sweden has been, and still is, a great success.
Meet Kim Loughran Tuesday 24 June from 17.00 at The English Bookshop, Lilla Nygatan 11, Gamla Stan
