The Tunnel Runner

Entering the tunnels is easy, but Ripley and Gabriela soon discover that reaching the surface again will be the greatest challenge they have ever faced... 

The Tunnel Runner is a tale of urban adventure and social discontent that plunges the reader deep beneath the city of Brisbane.

Come and explore the world on the other side of the street.

Lighthouses Launch

What a great day we had yesterday in Byron Bay for the launch of "Lighthouses: An Anthology of Dark Tales". It started off raining and finished with a huge storm later in the evening, but the weather was perfect for the launch. Five of the authors (Linda Brucesmith, Danielle Birch, Alice Godwin, David Dolan, and Cameron Trost) were there with family and friends, and one of the local volunteers from Byron Bay Lighthouse Friends and Volunteers joined us. Thank you to everybody who came along to buy a copy of the anthology and chat with the authors.

Don't worry if you couldn't make it. You can now purchase your copy of the anthology from our online shop.

Merry Christmas from the Black Beacons Team!

Well, what a year we've had here at Black Beacon Books. This year saw the release of two chilling titles, "Subtropical Suspense" and "Vaudeville and Other Nightmares". The former was launched at Black Cat Books in Paddington, Brisbane, and just today, we were informed that this wonderful bookshop will be closing down in January, 2015. This is terrible news for Brisbane bookworms, but it is not all that surprising. Independent bookshops are doing it very tough in the age of internet shopping. Here at Black Beacon Books, we have sought to support local bookshops, but this is quickly becoming impossible. So, this Christmas, we are urging you to support independent bookshops and publishers before you lose them! Black Beacon Books can't survive without you.

Do you want to keep independent publishing alive? Do you want great stories by talented authors for 2015? Yes? Then click HERE and buy one of our titles this very instant. That will be your Christmas gift to us, and even more so, to yourself.

Merry Christmas and thank you!
