Iron Overload by James Minter

The Indie Book of the Day for 2nd of June, 2014!

Genre: Paranormal, Humor

Jimmy Kavanagh has a genetic condition where he absorbs and stores iron from his diet over and above the body?s requirements (Haemochromatosis). He is unaware of this. As time progresses, with increased ferritin levels he exhibits many traits of storing iron: oxidisation (rusting), becoming magnetised, and having strong bones (excess iron is stored in bone marrow). Through various childhood experiences he realises he is different but doesn’t know why. After a significant event in which he saves Barbara, the woman of his dreams, from possible death he realises he can control his magnetism. His life is further complicated after coming to the attention of the KGB. They are interested in all things paranormal, and the CIA who are determined to stop the Russians. Life for Jimmy is further complicated by Sheila. Her father is Irish though she was born in Australia. Unbeknownst to her she has Haemochromatosis but of course, from the Southern hemisphere her polarity is reversed. Will Jimmy and Barbara live happily ever after? Can he manage to thwart the Russians, and CIA. Since opposites attract does his future lay with Sheila?

Read Sample

He turned his attention to fiction during the summer of 2009. Armed with an A4 pad and ballpoint pen he unleashed a stream of consciousness — some 40,000 words before drawing a breath. The writing experience with such unbridled passion was new to him: a far cry from technical authoring. The excitement of not knowing where it was going but having an evolving story with a host of characters spurred him on. The Hole Opportunity was the product of his imagination and the first in a series of titles to be completed. The Unexpected Consequences of Iron Overload followed a year later. This book, paranormal, spoof thriller, was written to raise awareness of a genetic medical condition, Haemochromatosis, and to raise funds for the Haemochromatosis Society. James has the condition.

Born 1952 in Oxfordshire, UK, James draws on his local knowledge to provide inspiration and settings for his characters, locations for his plots, and the mid-twentieth century for his historic anchors.

He is currently writing book three of the Hole Trilogy — Marmite Makes a Sandwich, Dynamite Makes a Hole, and continues to raise funds/awareness for Hemochromatosis, as well as sharing his experiences of self-publishing and self-promotion with other indie authors via his website, blog and participating in various writing forums.

Fully behind the notion of self-publishing, James is very conscious of quality and professionalism incumbent on all authors to give his readers the best experience he can. To this end he is a Professional Member of the Alliance of Independent Authors.
