New Release – Book #6 of the Treading Twisted Lines series – available for $US 0.99
When privileged Darren Brown stumbles upon a body outside his apartment, the idealistic but naïve student attempts to do right by the victim. Unfortunately, in Oshi Daini, alerting police is not enough to trigger justice …
Darren Brown has a good heart. He also has everything else: an intimidating education, a fine apartment, doting—if feuding and occasionally overbearing—parents, and a bright future. Well aware of his good fortune, Darren is known to be outspoken on radio, a voice for justice. On discovering a body on his doorstep, the student immediately calls the police. Their response appals him and it’s left to Darren to ensure some small recompense for the victim. But Darren has not only caught the attention of like-minded activists and hopeful suitors. His every action is scrutinised. An entire organisation watches.
Darren Brown has been tagged.
Set in the Four Free Areas, a technologically advanced world where Gods watch from rivers and fantastical arts are practiced by wizards and priests, A Courtesy Call is the sixth instalment of the story cycle Treading Twisted Lines with Darren, Maddi, and Kai.

Beth Madden, born in Brisbane, Australia, knew since childhood she was meant to write. She has written several fantasy novels which she aspires to publish both in print and electronically.
Beth received her Bachelors of Science and Arts in 2009, majoring in biomedical science, psychology and Japanese. From mid-2010 to mid-2012, she worked in Kyoto, Japan, as an assistant English teacher. Her experiences there inspired the first stories in the Treading Twisted Lines series and continue to influence much of her writing. She currently works as a court transcriber.
Besides writing and reading, Beth loves music, singing and anime. She currently lives with her younger sister and two cats – Theseus the Destroyer and Fifi the Destructor. She has at present released seven books in the Treading Twisted Lines story cycle (there’s a Book 5.1 in there) and at this point means to write 25 stories in the cycle (not including Book 5.1) and wind it all up with a novel. That’s a fair amount of work she’s set for herself while focussing on various other projects, not to mention working full time, so it may take a while; the very first book in the series, The Chosen Voice, was first released back in September 2012.
While her story cycle is a series and the books are released in recommended reading order, each Treading Twisted Lines story is designed to be an independent read (except for Book 5.1 … people should probably read Book 5 first). The stories, however, are heavily interrelated, sharing characters, settings and events. Treading Twisted Lines was meant to be a fantasy short story cycle, but tumbled from the genre somewhat with the length of Book 4.
