Bad Magic FREE

Book Launch:

Bad Magic by A.M Sterling

A new psychological thriller published by Wombach Press.

Bad Magic is a dark tale of kissing cousins, reunited at a family funeral. Fuelled by alcohol and lust they squabble over an inheritance, with deadly consequences.

A gripping thriller set in the sleazy, corrupt world of the art trade, Bad Magic is a compelling story of obsession and murder. A sexy, transgressive and very promising debut novel.’
Tony Glover, author of the Kitty Lockwood novels

A. M. Stirling has had a varied career as a freelance photographer, an artist with several national and international exhibitions to his name, and an academic.  After harbouring an ambition to write fiction for far too long, he completed an MA in Creative Writing at Newcastle University in 2012.

Bad Magic is his first published novel. He lives in Newcastle upon Tyne.

A.M. Sterling will be signing copies of Bad Magic at the event, which will also be available to purchase.
