Screams You Hear

Murder and madness infect a small town

For sixteen-year-old Ruthie Stroud, life on tiny Hemlock Island in the Pacific Northwest is an endless sea of boring green, in a place where everybody knows everybody's business and nothing ever happens. Then her world is ripped apart when her parents divorce and a new man enters her mother's life. But worse is yet to come.



When she drifts ashore on the mainland, hideously burned, Ruthie has a harrowing tale to tell. It begins with the murder of a family. It ends with her being the sole survivor of a cataclysm that sweeps her little island. As a detective attempts to unravel Ruthie's story of murder and madness, only one horrifying conclusion can be drawn: whatever was isolated on remote Hemlock Island may now have come to the mainland. Is Ruthie safe? Is anyone?

"Talk about creepy, psychological fun! This book is a nonstop thrill ride" BOOK FIDELITY

It has been 8 years since the country cowered in fear as the serial killer christened The Crucifier wreaked bloody havoc.

Jane Parkes had always considered her ability a fine line between a gift and a curse. She calls it The Shadow World, a place where she can see through the eyes of killers and help bring them to justice.

Her desperation to prove herself led to a basement confrontation that she wasn't prepared for. As a result the Detective that had allowed her to work on the case lay dead alongside the killer.

She put away her ability to see inside the minds of monsters for 8 long years, but now someone else has taken up The Crucifiers' mantle. Someone is killing again, only this time The Shadow World is a two way street and he wants to play.

Sucked into a desperate race for survival Jane is going to learn that sometimes when you stare into the darkness, someone stares back.

A message from the author

Please read before downloading

In October 2014, I decided to write a little book inbetween the Snatchers series (a little tradition of mine) and began writing a story about a father and son that were trying to survive in the Zombie apocalypse. I called it Dead Dayz

In December 2014, I decided to ditch the first draft and concentrate on a new Snatchers book, Snatchers 5: The Dead Don't Yield. I didn't like the finished Dead Dayz, but some individuals who had read the book liked the father and son story, so I decided to incorporate it into the fifth Snatchers book.

The story was about David Johnson and his son, Harry, (Paul and Kyle Dickson), and I saved the best bits from the Dead Dayz book and put it into the Snatchers book.

The following you are about to read is the original Dead Dayz book. If you have read the Snatchers series, then this book still has many parts/chapters that you haven't read before, but the story will certainly be familiar. And if you haven't read the Snatchers series before, then everything I have talked about doesn't matter.

Dead Dayz was initially a standalone novel, before it was dissected for the Snatchers 5 book that was eventually released in February 2015, and it seemed a shame to leave it sitting on my hard drive in its original form.

The Vampire Extinction: Greyson Undead (Book 1)

The Vampire Extinction: Greyson Undead is an exciting new paranormal series that will take fans of Twilight, The Mortal Instruments, The Vampire Diaries and A Shade of Vampire on a thrill ride unlike any other...

Greyson Black hated what he was: a monster. Forced to feed on the blood of humans, he'd been condemned to a life of darkness and murder to survive. Though others like him celebrated their fate, Greyson cursed it. Unlike them, he had a conscience, one that prohibited him from feeding on innocents. Instead, he chose to kill only those he deemed deserving. Those the world would be better off without.

Despising the vicious nature of his kind, Greyson lived a life of complete solitude. An empty life without anyone or anything to live for. But of that all changed the day he met Alex Lockhart.

The only human he'd ever encountered who didn't fall victim to the trap of his allure, Alex made him feel alive again for the first time in decades. She caused him to feel a dangerous emotion: hope.

A violent encounter threatened to tear at the thread of happiness Greyson clung to, and forced him to choose between letting Alex die and enslaving her to a life like his. A life spent in shadows. A life of bloodlust.

But would changing Alex even save her?

Dark forces lurked, stalking and conspiring against all vampires. Killing them systematically and intent upon exterminating every last one of them.

Will Greyson and Alex survive the hunt or will they fall to the vampire extinction? Find out in this riveting first installment of The Vampire Extinction series, Greyson Undead...

Resurrection: A Zombie Novel

From prize-winning author Michael J. Totten Welcome to a world turned to ashes. Annie Starling is missing her memory of the last eight weeks-the most devastating in history. It started in Russia and went global in a matter of days, the most virulent virus the world has ever known. It's stripping its victims of every last thing that makes them human. And that's just the beginning. The other survivors are no less dangerous than the infected. She meets Lane, who stops at nothing to assert power and control over everybody who's left; Kyle, who dreams of building a new world upon the ruins of the old; Hughes, who lost the ability to feel after burying his family; and Parker, who threatens to tear himself and his companions apart. And when her memories finally return, Annie discovers a terrifying secret that could change everything-but she can't tell a soul what it is. Praise for Resurrection "For fans of "World War Z" and "The Walking Dead," Michael J. Totten's "Resurrection" is the novel you've been waiting for." - Scott William Carter, author of "Ghost Detective" "In the tradition of "The Walking Dead," Michael J. Totten delivers a must-read with "Resurrection." Action packed with a wicked twist, this is one book I couldn't put down." -Annie Reed, author of "The Patient Z Files" ""Resurrection" dragged me in from the first page, with fast-paced, suspense-filled action and multi-layered and totally believable characters. Painting a vivid and gritty picture of a post-apocalyptic Northwest, Totten puts us into the minds and emotional struggles of a group of mismatched survivors forced to band together for protection even when they're on the verge or ripping each other apart. He also wrote one of the scariest passages I've read in any horror or suspense story...so be warned if you're afraid of the dark, or water, or both." - JC Andrijeski, author of "Rook"
