The eBook version of 'The Dark Road' is now available to buy from Amazon for $3.99.
Already the five star reviews have started coming in! From 'Page Turner' on Amazon:
If you are looking for for a book that has expertly written characters with dimension and a story line that keeps you on the edge of your seat, then this book is the one is for you. Marissa Farrar's "The Dark Road" is not only a story that keeps you guessing, but also adds that unexpected element of "what, WHAT'S NEXT??" "If you think you have if figured out, chances are you don't."
I'll admit that when Sasha. the main character flew off to meet a fiancé who had left a year ago to teach English to students in Cambodia, I'd thought it was going to be a reunion/romance vacation story. Wrong. Prepare yourself. This book takes you on a journey that winds through the desolate country of Cambodia, complete with a storm of cataclysmic proportions, floods, dark of night, a curse, an evil monster/king set upon...well, lets just say, I'm still sitting on the edge of my seat!
And from Maria:
An absolutely riveting story of intrigue, mystery and bravery. Amazing how life does these surprising things to one's life. It is a brilliant book, excellently written that keeps you wanting to read, what I would call a real page turner. It makes you realise how precious life is and how you must not take it for granted, in a nutshell if you appreciate life and of those around you, you will fight for it.
Marissa Farrar has excelled herself, The Dark Road is as brilliant as The Serenity Series. Truly an outstanding piece of work.
Thank you to everyone who has been kind enough to read and review the book so far. It's wonderful to have readers appreciate all the time and hard work from all involved. If you're still not into e-readers, then please watch this space. The paperback will be coming soon!

As WHP is located in the UK, I decided to take advantage of the new KDP Select program and enrol each of these titles. Doing so meant I was able to offer the books for free for several days, and, in the case of The Body Farm in particular, sales continued even after the free period ended. At its peak, The Body Farm reached #13 on the horror thriller list on Amazon.co.uk and continues to sell well.
Once the 90 days period is over on each of these titles, I will be uploading them to Smashwords for further distribution.
The next title to be released via WHP will be Marissa Farrar's The Dark Road. It's in the final stages of proofreading and will be available very soon. As well as being available as an eBook, the novel will also be available as a paperback within the next couple of months.
Happy New Year everyone. With over four million kindle sold in the run up to Christmas, I have the feeling it will be a good one!
