The Island: Fallen Earth, Book 1

The fever struck hard and fast, rising out of the slums and claiming victim after victim. At first, reports trickled across the wire in small segments relegated to the final seconds of the broadcast news. Lost among stories of failing economies and political bickering, few noticed what proved to be the birth pangs of a monster. Within months, the disease dominated the news as thousands died and infection rates soared.

William Hill knew his chances of avoiding the virus sat squarely between slim and none. With experts predicting a global pandemic, his choices boiled down to not if, but where he would die. While the rest of the world built barricades and set up distribution points for food, he chose a simpler end. The island had been one of the last and best times with his father. He couldn't think of a better place to spend his final days.

He wanted sun and sand, fresh fish on the grill, and cool nights by the campfire. He wanted feel-good days filled with oldies on the radio, days when he could hoist the sails and run before the wind. He didn't set out to make enemies, but he did. He didn't plan on becoming humanity's last hope for survival, or watching over an old woman and an eerie little boy, either.

To William Hill, the island seemed as good a place as any to die.

He just didn't realize how good.

Square: A Mystery Thriller Suspense Novel (Episode 1) (Square series)

The first novella in a brand new revenge quadriology.

They beat him.

They broke him.

They stabbed him.

They murdered him.

If they did that to your loved one, would you forgive them? Or would you get Square?

Tony Green was recently released having served a four-year prison sentence for murder. With the support of a loving fiancee he attempts to prevent the next generation from following in his own footsteps. But old habits die hard, and the allure of the underworld is hard to resist.

Although Tony may be paying back his debt to society, he is about to discover other debts are not so easily repaid.

From the writer who brought you the Blood Memory series and Z-Minus comes this tale of revenge, retribution and regret. If you were denied justice would you dispense your own?

SQUARE. Let redemption begin.

Interview with the Author

Q - So, what makes the Square series so special?

A - At the time I wrote Square, every week there seemed to be a story in the news about some young hooligan having murdered an innocent bystander, or someone who stood up to bullies but got punished for it. Often the deaths were by accident, or a sudden release of anger in a fit of rage. The murderers were invariably sent to prison for unbelievably short terms.

Seeing that made me angry, so I began to write a story. But as I kept writing, and the characters kept speaking to me, I realised the murderers themselves were also victims - if not of a crime, then of society. At its heart, Square is about change and redemption, and explores the question that if we are denied justice, is it right that we seek out our own?

The story became a psychological suspense/thriller with a sense of mystery and a series of twists that keep the reader guessing.

Q - What made you decide to give the first book away free?

A - I wanted to gift a free book to everyone who enjoys the horror genre. I'm a new writer and it's great knowing that someone out there is reading and enjoying my novel. There's no greater feeling than that.

By the way, there's also a special free gift at the end of the free book for mystery fans... :)

Q - Can readers get the whole series in one go?

A - Of course. I've bundled all the episodes up into one complete season at a hugely discounted rate here: http://www.amazon.com/Square-Mystery-Suspense-Complete-Season-ebook/dp/B00NA8Q0PI

I have also written many other books. Readers can check them out at my author profile on Amazon.

Thanks for reading!

Q & A with the Author

Q - How would you describe The School of Exorcists series?

A - The School of Exorcists is a mix of teen and YA romance and adventure, sc-fi and fantasy, with lots of paranormal bumps along the way. I've always enjoyed reading books aimed at teens and young adults, especially coming of age series best sellers, they speak to my own inner teen, so you'll find lots of this throughout the series.

Q - Why did you want to write paranormal romance and adventure novels?

A - I love thinking about love and reimagining my own teenage years, making them much more exciting! This series has been ten years in the writing and Ruby Carmichael and her paranormal adventures and romance can now be released for others to immerse themselves into. I wanted to write young teen and young adult books that engaged and excited readers of all ages and I hope The School of Exorcists has achieved that.

Q - What does it mean to you when readers buy your books?

A - I get a huge smile on my face, it great to know people enjoy my writing. Paranormal romance and adventure books can get a bad rap, too much Twilight and not enough action, but I will always enjoy this type of writing, and if I never sell another book and the best seller list isn't for me, I will still write paranormal books because I love them. The School of Exorcists has so many stories to tell, lots of undead, plenty of ghosts and magic by the bucket load. The School is going to keep me busy for years, and I hope readers will enjoy this journey with me.

A Lonely Death: A Pearl And Derek Mystery, Book 1

A short murder mystery with ghosts.

Derek Quill is an elderly gent who can see the ghosts of murdered people. With the help of his ghostly friend, Pearl, he finds out who killed them.

In his first investigation, Derek meets the ghost of Eric Malone. Derek knows Eric from his schooldays. Eric bullied Derek mercilessly back then and now he's asking for Derek's help. Derek soon discovers that Eric never changed his bullying ways and there is more than one person who could be a suspect.

For a Ghost-Free Time, Call

For a Ghost-Free Time, Call is an episodic supernatural adventure set in the emerald city of Eugene, Oregon which follows a young man, who-since he was a boy-has had the irritating ability to see ghosts all around him. In spite of this so-called "gift," he found a way to cope and a few less than legitimate ways to make a little money on the side. But a con that started out as a way to make a quick buck will soon become a terrifying reality check about the world he thought he understood...

"Eugene is teeming with ghosts and for some stupid, God damn reason, I'm the only one who can see them."

At the young age of nine, Jared developed the unnatural ability to see the lingering spirits of the dead, and beyond its initial novelty, all it's ever done is piss him off. After having to grow up rather quickly on his own, Jared took something that would have easily driven most people insane and found a way to use his unwelcomed gift to his advantage. He studied and took notes from the most prevalent movies and television shows, and armed with every mainstream supernatural trope and cliche he could find, started his very own--more or less legitimate--ghost removal service. With years of hit-or-miss cons and a number of temporary solutions to combat the most crippling aspects of his "gift," Jared finally found a way to live a "normal" life and a way to fit in with society. However, one day, while working a routine job for a rich mark, Jared will be confronted with his own lies and a glimpse of the truth behind the world around him and his abilities.

For a Ghost-Free Time, Call is a supernatural thriller written by up and coming Pacific Northwest author Sean Kelly (author of "The Drive Home: A Tale of Bromance and Horror" and co-founder of Emerald Inkwell, A Pacific Northwest Publishing Community) and is the first story in an episodic series brought to you by Emerald Inkwell. Every city has their supernatural annoyances, but that doesn't mean you have to put up with them. Instead, for a ghost-free time, just call.

Alien Species Intervention: Books 1-3: An Alien Apocalyptic Saga (Species Intervention #6609)

Warning*** This series honestly reflects the brutality of our world. If you are a sensitive reader, this is NOT for you.*** Contains violence.*** ( NO violence towards animals).Alien Species Intervention #6609, is an alien apocalyptic saga spanning 200 years from the Prohibition to the distant future. It encompasses tender love between divergent species, political downfalls and acts of unspeakable violence. When you think you've figured it out . . . WHAM! You won't see it coming. Thriller, horror, science fiction and fantasy all in one, the series is a gripping psychological exploration of how the inherent greed and evil of man is dooming planet Earth and its inhabitants.

In Baby, the prequel to the Species Intervention #6609, Netty is a naive teenage farm girl given in marriage to an older brutal opportunist disguised as a prominent citizen during the Prohibition years in Sussex County, New Jersey. After years of enslavement, Netty flees into the night from her rapist husband, traveling back to her parents' farm, where she rescues an enigmatic and damaged creature named "Baby" with whom she falls in love.

Netty and Baby find happiness and fulfillment until a handsome Italian stranger, Wil, comes into Netty's life, creating a tense love triangle made more fraught by Netty's struggle to hide the bizarre and wondrous changes to her body caused by loving Baby. Baby's miraculous healing powers on the nature around them can't be ignored either. The heart-rending and astonishingly brutal climax to their story comes as all three face challenges that ultimately lead to transcendence and the discovery of a new world that promises resurrection.

Echo

2033. One hundred years have passed since the birth of Baby's miraculous offspring, Echo. The United States has evolved to a point of politically driven economic collapse.

An abused mother escapes with her two sickly children, Scotty and Abby, from the tenements of Short Hills to the farmland of Sussex County. There she unites with a Latino family who has provided a loving home to Jose, a young Costa Rican boy who has been traumatized by murder and kidnap.

The two families find themselves the subject of the psychotic attention of Armoni, a soul damaged beyond redemption, as their lives become entwined with Echo's, who is intent on thwarting the efforts of the heinous people who prey on the lives of other creatures. And as the insidious miscreant, Armoni, tracks them down, bringing brutality and violence to all, Netty recruits a heartbroken Abby to mount a mission to rescue the wildlife of Earth before despicable events bring on the specter of Armageddon.

In Armageddon Cometh, the third book in the Alien Species Intervention #6609, Abby plans to abduct the wildlife at the Big Cat Sanctuary under Netty's guidance by enlisting the help of the charming Italian yacht captain, Cobby, even though this leads to the exposure of hidden changes to her body. Despite her love for Jose, she draws closer to the charming Cobby when Jose departs on his own mission to find his adopted family.

At Bird Key, young Scotty embarks on a romance with the troubled rich girl, Chloe. As strange connections and revealed identities collide with political intrigue and murder, a traumatized Chloe and Jose scramble in a frantic dash to escape, wildlife and all, to Tampa Bay. Joining them are Kenya, a sassy and striking pregnant black girl, and Peter, their trusted attorney, who has been left scarred and emotionally ruined by their nemesis, Armoni. In the climax and chaos of the escape ahead of cops and devastation from the sky, it soon becomes clear that Scotty might be the mysterious "One" as foretold in an omen.

Warning: Alien Species Intervention #6609 contains violence that a sensitive reader may find confronting.

Darkness surrounds Jack Teach while a bar of swampy moonlight drifts through an open window, streaking across his face. He lies in a semi-unconscious state. Slowly, his nervous system reminds him of the pain coursing through his body. The smell of infection is nauseating. Breathing causes him exhaustion, and his eyes barely stay open. How did this happen? he wonders, absorbed in pain and regret. What in God's name was I thinking? Outside the world is dark, frogs are burping, and something is moving.

Where is she? It hurts so much.

The author on the Ordo Lupus and the Blood Moon Prophecy series:

My own family's roots, uncovered over ten years, had led me to one Guillaume; a Chevalier (Knight) in 13th Century Languedoc, France; my earliest ancestor. Simultaneously, I had pursued a theological interest in the Cathars, first through reading a number of books about the Knights Templar and Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code and later, an interest in Monsegur and the Rennes-le-Chateau, near where the lost treasure of the Cathars is said to be hidden.

Around the same time I was starting this work, my interest in the paranormal became focused around reincarnation and lycanthropy (werewolves and vampires). I have always loved old Hammer Horror films and particularly the work of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. I have also always been interested in luck, and the constant battle between good and evil, light and dark, and yin and yang; who isn't? My own luck seems to run in phases of waves; periods of days or even weeks of good luck, followed by periods of very bad luck. I decided that my main character, as well as being physically imperfect, must have some kind of rare interaction with luck and the forces of good and evil.

From there, I developed the idea that luck might have something to do with the effect of the battle between good and evil: that in fact both Satan and God might both have one hand on the tiller of luck.

I knew the main character would be flawed physically and yet have strange psychic powers but only when I wrote a scene in a graveyard, Highgate Cemetery, did I know that he would also become a Secret Agent and later an amateur sleuth.

Yet another theme is Witchcraft. I have long been interested in the influence of Gurdjieff and Mdm. Blavatsky on modern western ideas. I also make frequent references to the Malleus Maleficarum - the witch-hunter's bible - and wicca, particularly Gardnerian wicca.

The final theme I wanted to get into my novel was the Gothic. The themes of murder, werewolves, vampires, blood, death, eroticism, sex and the paranormal are all things that I like in a novel. My influences are Kate Bush, The Mission, Lord Byron, John Keats (The Eve of St. Agnes is a particularly favourite poem of mine) and, to some extent, Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.

Apocalypstick

A Kindle Top 100 Free Book in Anthologies and Short Stories

If a man's behavior suddenly and inexplicably changes, it is probably because of a woman. Or rather, the man's perception of a woman. The two stories in this book explore the dark paths set by male leads and the warped lens through which they view the opposite gender.

Killing Tiffany Hudson: This post-apocalyptic science fiction tale follows a heroic, but guilt-ridden young man, mutated by an alien plague. Contrary to his policy of avoiding cities, he battles his way into a monster-infested Manhattan to rescue a young woman from an imminent, and probably very messy, death.

Finding Home: Part paranormal horror, and part psychological thriller, this creepy story puts you in the blood spattered shoes of deeply disturbed man on a quest for the perfect home and family, as he tries to escape the control of man bent on his destruction. Can he ever find the "normal" life he so desperately craves, when the man he is fleeing only exists in his head?

The Trinket Box

When he finds a vintage cigar box hidden in June's old dresser, he begins to obsess over the odd collection of knick-knacks contained inside it -- but his journey to remember the past will take a horrifying turn for the worse.

The Child of Mystery (Chains of Darkness Book 1)



The clock is ticking, and time is running out...NOT ALL THINGS BOUND IN CHAINS SHOULD BE FREEDTime for Melinda is fast running out. Time for her to make her escape. And time to make a daring rescue.

From the Publisher that brought you popular short story series Witching Call, Hostile Hearts, Earthbound Angels, The January Morrison Files Psychic Series, Ralph's Gift, Children of Time, Chains of Darkness, Tropical Storms and Friend Zone...

The only thing fifteen-year-old Melinda has been thinking about ever since she found out that she was betrothed to a man twice her age was how to escape the madness of the cult she had been trapped in. But escape seems easier said than done, especially since Melinda is being kept under the watchful eyes of her Uncle, an Aunt who never seems to sleep, and the Elders.

Melinda has the unique ability to see things no one can, like Angels and, once one Halloween, a demon. Her power also allows her to see a boy named Caleb, who isn't really a boy but has the fading aura of an Angel, get captured by the Elders. Kept in chains and tortured, Caleb's agonizing cries are a constant reminder of why she must get as far away from the cult as she can. She must escape, and soon, but not without trying to rescue Caleb.

Does Melinda have the power to not only save herself, but to save Caleb? And if she can save him, has she saved an angel... or a demon?

EXCERPT"What's with the angel, anyway?" Gabe asks, watching her as she smooths the jagged fringe of her hair.

"You can see them, too?" That's the other reason she likes him so much. When she told him that she could see them, he didn't automatically say that she was crazy, like so many other people did. He merely nodded, and listened. He didn't believe her, not then. But he does now.

"No, but I kinda assumed, after what happened last night," he says, leaving the sentence unfinished. He leaves the bathroom . She keeps snipping, concentrating on keeping her hand steady.

"Um, Melinda?"

"Yeah?"

"Where is he?"

She feels a lump form in her throat, and fights back a wave of nausea as she goes to confirm what she's inexplicably terrified about: the bed where Caleb was curled up on is empty. The silvery aura, the wall of flames--she doesn't exactly believe in being able to see the future, but right now, she has a very bad feeling that something terrible is going to happen.

The Hill - Ben's Story (Book One): A Paranormal Murder Mystery Thriller

'The Hill reveals the world for what it is; a place where the impossible is real, and the dead speak with the living'

What if you were murdered? And what if by supernatural intervention you are given the chance to help the police find your killer? This is what happened to rookie police officer Ben Walker after he and his new girlfriend, Liz Mason became victims of a callous and brutal attack by Daniel Boyd, a grudge bearing drop out, and his gang.

Ben's body lay alongside Liz, who was unconscious and barely alive at the bottom of Mill Tut, a Bronze aged burial mound in the beautiful Badock's Wood in Bristol.

DCI Markland Garraway, who at the last moment is brought in to lead the investigation into Ben's murder has a reputation of being a maverick detective who thinks outside the box.

The mystical powers of the ancient burial mound begin to influence Garraway's attitude towards the case and soon he is alienated by his colleagues. Mill Tut, or The Hill as Garraway refers to it, opens up a Pandora's Box of supernatural happenings which infiltrate his waking and sleeping life, creating a host of mental demons which the Scottish detective must learn to deal with.

Daniel Boyd has fled Bristol to evade capture for the crime he has committed. To those who know him, he's vanished off the face of the earth. But can he escape the mystical powers of The Hill?

The power of The Hill does not only affect Garraway. It reaches out to many, including Christopher Jameson, who was born at the precise moment Ben's life ended.

The Hill reveals to Garraway and the others who are affected by its influence, the world for what it is; a place where the impossible is real, and the dead speak with the living.

Reminiscent of vintage King and yet spun in a voice original and confident enough to suggest great things ahead for its author, you'd do well to get in on the ground floor of what's sure to be an exciting career for this weaver of delectable nightmares."

The Blacksmith (Tales from the Graveyard Book 1)

My name is Ainsley. I live among the dead.

Meet Ainsley. Ainsley lives alone, and she likes it that way. Ainsley has some secrets. Dark secrets.

Sometimes, Ainsley feels like the Blacksmith is the only one who will ever understand her. The Blacksmith resides in the graveyard in her garden. You see, Ainsley's heart was broken long ago, and now it's dead. As dead as the Blacksmith's. They belong together.

Then there's Sam: sweet, loving Sam. Ainsley was abandoned by anyone she ever loved, but Sam has always been there. If her heart weren't already dead, Ainsley might even say she loved him.

Not even Sam knows the depth's of Ainsley's darkness...and lately, she's come very, very close to revealing it to him.

But the Blacksmith says no. And what the Blacksmith says, goes.

Contains content that may be graphic to some readers. Mature audiences only.

Praise for The Blacksmith:"The Blacksmith by Susan Shultz is like Dexter with a feminine twist gone dark. Ainsley feeds her dead heart by killing men and eating theirs. Who run the world? Girls. And their apparently insatiable desire for man-flesh. A fun holiday read!" -- Nerdist.com"It wasn't until I read The Blacksmith by Susan Shultz that I thought about a different type of 'scary story.'...It relies on legitimate fears of loss and the flaws in human nature to make you feel uncomfortable. Don't misunderstand--if you like blood, ghosts and sociopaths, The Blacksmith has that for you." -- Volumes of Words"The new book...explodes with images and themes that test the limits of our understanding of love, death, pain and friendship. Shultz channels masterful storytellers such as Shirley Jackson and Stephen King to weave a surreal yet familiar world, as she delves into the psychology of a killer who is torn between her love of Sam and her passion for the Blacksmith." -- Darien Times

About the Author

I'm currently an over the road truck driver, frequently found at the end of a 400 to 500 mile day trying to peck out one to two thousand words on a new book. I'm an Army paratrooper with a background in intelligence operations. I spent six years in Iraq and Afghanistan, in uniform and out. Currently, my greatest challenges are black ice, lake effect snow, and uploading word documents to the ebook format, all equally treacherous endeavors. My greatest hope is to write stories that my readers enjoy.

The 'Vampire' series begins in Tudor England and continues through each novella until present time. EXTRACT FROM VAMPIRE - IN THE BEGINNING 'Tom's mother Martha was sprawled across the large kitchen table, her clothes ripped, and in places, torn completely away; her ageing breasts fell from her laced bodice, flaccid and drooping to the sides of her lifeless body. Her legs were at a strange angle, and her skirts bunched up into a ball at her waist. I could see, even from where I was standing, that she was dead! Martha's eyes were open, staring into nothingness and devoid of life, but it was her throat that caught my attention, it gaped open, and it looked like, what I imagined, the huge black cavern of hell to look like.'

Antioch: Volume 1 (The Circle)

"Armageddon is arrived." Threatened by an unnatural plague that raises the dead, an ancient order of mystics must choose between keeping its secrets and saving humanity. Kind of like Star Wars with zombies. Editor's Review: Antioch is a great fantasy adventure novel with plenty of sword fighting and monsters (zombies), but the heart of the book is its characters, complex story and clean, imaginative prose. From the pious yet conflicted paladin Michael to the loudmouthed but lovable sailor Ditch, the characters in Antioch are multifaceted and unique. There are no stereotypes within these pages, yet through the use of humor and seamless dialog, the characters are relatable and believable. This is a rarity in books even by many seasoned authors. The story begins with slaughter and mystery, then turns to small-town life under the shadow of fear as the citizens of Antioch prepare for Armageddon. Still, questions about the origin and nature of the plague remain and the eventual discovery of the answers is as exciting as the final showdown with death. My only complaint is that the story is left unfinished, and like everyone else who reads Antioch, I have to wait for the rest of the series to discover the final fate of my favorite characters and the answers to all my questions. The writing in Antioch is clear and precise. I can testify that the author agonized over every word, and it shows in the careful phrasing and brilliant imagery of the story. This, in my opinion, is the mark of a not just a great book, but a great writer. Highly recommended for any fantasy fan.
