It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and I apologize, there is so much going on and I’m here to tell you about it.
First, I’d like to welcome some new staff members:
Brandy Yassa — Editor
Deanna Cooley — Editor
Sylvia Stein — Editor
Mark Deloy –Aquisitions
Jeff Brown — Jack of all Trades (No official title but he’s ours, damnit)
Welcome to all of our new staff and I’m looking forward to working with you, creating new nightmares, and giving hope to new authors!
Now let’s get to releases. My goodness! We are rolling out nothing but gold (OK, so I’m biased). Below you can get a glimpse of our current catalog. We have several parties happening at the end of the month so keep reading for more details about that.
Stalker (available now on Amazon.com)
5.0 out of 5 stars “Lightness at the end of a dark tunnel”
Carl is a good man who was dealt a bad hand. He has a stressful job, and he struggles with his wife, Gloria, a successful woman who likes to play games that she may not know how to handle.
Gloria begs for attention from her male clients. She gives them what they desire, and they bury her in expensive gifts, dinners, and sex. They always used the same hotel. She even used her real name. A drunken one-night stand leads her to a stalker who has killed before, and he watches her on a daily basis from her shadows.
Most of the citizens of their small town have reported what Gloria gets up to while John is at work. He shrugs it off as he walks by them, but inside, his heart is black. She killed him and his spirit.
John is at a loss; he doesn’t want to divorce her, but he doesn’t want to have anything else to do with her. Separate rooms make them more distant. He has his life and friends. Then the stalker steps from the darkness, and John has to deal with a different kind of loss.
Collision Course (available now on Amazon.com!)
5.0 out of 5 stars “Read this Thrill ride and be swept away into action, bloodshed and intesnsity”
Wylderness: A powerful, mysterious corporation with the desire to play God. Gerald: An unpredictable sociopath they thought they could keep chained, but who, by his very nature, is uncontrollable. Gwen: a dishonored cop craving redemption, beholden to the company for her recovery.
Gwen and Gerald are polar opposites. He’s Welsh, built like a Rugby player and wired like a lunatic. His interests? Fast cars, dirty hookers and sharp knives. She’s the all-American golden girl who loves hiking, educational TV and the perfect cup of coffee, but has fallen head-first into a bottle of vodka.
When Gwen’s drinking becomes an addiction, she makes a fatal mistake at work, costing innocent lives as well as her career. At the same time, Gerald has lost the ability and the desire to maintain any façade of obedience to his employer.
Be forewarned, Gerald’s exploits are not for the faint of heart, or stomach; even Gwen’s courage has its limits. If you’re ready for a barely controlled, action and horror-filled apocalyptic joyride, buckle up. You’re on a Collision Course. It’s not going to end well.
Granville (available now on Amazon.com!)
5.0 out of 5 stars “A worthy read filled with absolute horror and revenge on a level rarely read.”
Stanley is a typical high school student trying to find his way through the hierarchy of study and popularity. Nobody wants to spend time with him and even his crush turned him down nine times. He spends most of his time alone in the house, cursing his mother and blaming her for driving his father away. He has a preoccupation with all things horror and his love goes beyond just watching the movies; he wants to be the star of the show.
Making masks started as a hobby that soon becomes a practiced ritual and finally, when he has the right mask and slips it on over his head, he realizes that he is transformed. He is no longer Stanley but Granville, a masked warrior who intends to get payback for all the wrongs done to him and he will hold no punches.
The town is on lock down, the people terrified of this hideous killer, all the while he waits and plans his final masterpiece before taking off.
Strigoi: The First Family (available March 30th)
Not all monsters are made. Some are born. And sometimes, history gets it wrong. A freelance writer is invited to an elderly man’s home to witness his telling of the family history to his sons. The patriarch’s reason for requesting a stranger into his home as he shares his tale is a simple one. He wants the young man to write the true history of Family Dracul, to trace the lineage back to the very first member of a family cursed. But, the old man has another agenda. He wants to warn humanity; what happened in the past was nothing compared to what is to come.
“The vampire legends died soon after [Elizabeth] Bathory’s demise only to reemerge in the early 1970s with book after book and movie after movie. If only those stupid humans knew the truth.”
Strychnine (available March 30th)
What if the Zombie Apocalypse was man made, but not the way we think? It wasn’t some virus that started with patient zero resulting in an accidental outbreak. It is true, it was a bio-weapon that when released failed to accomplish what scientists created it to do, and it had an unintended side effect.
And, what if werewolves really did exist, but they haven’t been our enemy for years until one ruthless man bent on domination is turned?
Strychnine is the story of two brothers torn apart by an experiment forcing them fight against one another. It is also the name of a metal band made up of another set of brothers and their girlfriends.
Life for Thorne, his girlfriend, Blaze; his brother, Seminole; and Seminole’s girlfriend, Spaz, is about to be flipped on end as they find out zombies are real, werewolves have always been real, and certain werewolves are mankind’s saviors and its enemies at the same time. After being bitten by a werewolf fighting for mankind’s survival, Thorne unwittingly creates his own small pack to continue the fight over the worst kind of terrorist, one with large fangs and claws.
“Many years ago the Lycans roamed the earth. When they were discovered by your government, a deal was made.”

Zyra Falls, is a latent vampire known as a Stregoni Benefici, who is struggling to survive after. The Red system attacked her again. She has to learn to become a Hunter as well as learning to control her psychic powers. Will Queen Velika take her revenge out on Zyra and the innocent Lugat?
