Fifty/Fifty and Other Stories is a collection of eleven outstanding short stories by Northern Irish author Matthew W. McFarland.
$
In ‘Fifty/Fifty’, a policeman is called out to an attempted suicide on the iconic Forth Rail Bridge. His previous experience with ‘jumpers’ has led to one death and one life saved – his current record is fifty/fifty, but all that is about to change.
%
In ‘Defenestration’, a man is thrown from the twelfth storey of a building in mysterious circumstances. As he falls towards almost certain death, he contemplates his fate, killer whales, flying cats, and the untapped potential of the human mind.
%
In ‘The Burning Bar’, a man enters a burning building to rescue the love of his life, and becomes trapped, as the whole place collapses around him. Will he manage to escape before it is too late?
%
‘What Have You Done?’ deals with the legacy of the conflict in Northern Ireland, as a civil servant comes face to face with an ex-terrorist, leading him to discover how the previous generation coped with living through the worst of the Troubles.

These, and seven other stories, touching on sport, fatherhood, arachnophobia, faith, and cannibalism, make up an exciting collection of short fiction which will leave readers wanting more.

The “Old” Adventures of Hailey and Jared Book #2 by Bon Rose
Type: Collection of Short Stories
Genre: Fiction/mystery/suspense
Price: $2.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon (Kindle)
*
*
Hailey and Jared are best friends who have  gone on several exciting adventures. Originally a series I have put five more of their fun but scary short stories together for Book #2. Each  story has suspenseful adventures that always end with a twist!
*
Even though Hailey is a girl, you’d have to call her a tomboy as she loves  adventures with her best friend Jared, and has no problem getting in and out of spooky situations! She, Jared and her beloved bike Blue manage  to keep their lives pretty exciting and sometimes they are not sure  whether it’s ghosts or just their imagination. You’ll just have to decide which one it ends up being! 
*
Warning: My short stories are for children and the young at heart. If you’re too old to remember your childhood, these aren’t for you! (:

What they’re saying about it:
*
“I’m a huge fan of Bon Rose, and I’ve read just about everything that  I’ve found of hers.  With that said, I was thrilled to find that she put several of her stories in one collection.  My boys now have their  favorite author at their fingertips, all in one convenient place.  She  has two collections so far, and of course they’re still available in the single short stories.  I’m so glad that I found her work, and my boys  will enjoy her stories for many years to come.
