We are not often given to self-aggrandisement, but hope to be forgiven if we remind you of three novels published by members of ninevoices which might solve a last-minute present need or help entertain a self-isolating friend or relative. You may also like to be reminded that you could send one of them (or even all three) as gifts to their kindle/tablet. All you need is to ask them for their kindle address details.

All Desires Known by Tanya van Hasselt. Forbidden desires. A mind in fragments. A shocking act of violence. Written by a novelist whose work has been compared to that of Alan Bennett.
