$FREE on 8/19/2020 – Dark House of Dreams by Joe Pawlowski

Hastur is already overrun by ghosts. Now the conjure woman who resurrected them has awakened a new terror, a deadly, eight-legged one that strikes from the shadows without warning.

Add to this a murder plot, a devastating earthquake, a missing mother, a gang of outrageous villains, and a young boy tormented by demons both real and imagined, and you have the makings of an epic quest through the hidden places of monsters and gods.

It’s a journey that begins with a secret revealed in a charnel cave and ends with a hard-earned lesson learned in a Dark House of Dreams.

$FREE on 6/22/2020 – The Vermilion Book of the Macabre by Joe Pawlowski

From the author of The Watchful Dead and Dark House of Dreams, comes this highly anticipated collection of 16 spellbinding tales of supernatural suspense.

Among them:

• A merchant is kidnapped on a moonlit trail and brought to a sinister lair where he undergoes a hideous transformation at the hands of a hooded figure known only as “The Craftsman.”

• A cavalry general leads a charge that traps him in perilous face-to-face combat with a savage foe. But all is not as it appears, and the general soon learns that “His Greatest Battle” may not be with an enemy composed of flesh and blood.

• A dazzling temptress stands between an aging woman and her happiness, and only a dark deed can rectify the situation. But how much does vengeance truly cost when it comes with the otherworldly assistance of “The Toad Woman?”

And there’s much more.

The sins of her parents are visited on an innocent girl. A mysterious fog settles on a city, leaving its inhabitants questioning whether they aren’t all living false lives. A stranger knocks on a door in the dead of night and the simple twisting of a knob changes a family’s fortunes forever.

All these people lived average lives, until one day they found their realities turned upside down, and recorded by a demonic scribe in an ancient tome known as The Vermilion Book of the Macabre.

$FREE on 4/2/2020 – The Watchful Dead by Joe Pawlowski

Within the shadowy walls of ancient Hastur, reality and illusion walk hand in hand.

A 12-year-old boy housebound all his life, a conjure woman who talks to the dead, an evil slave trader driven ruthless by greed and a war hero whose greatest battles take place in his own mind: all are about to have their lives shaken to the core by powerful forces from beyond the grave.

A tale of murder, magic and madness, The Watchful Dead is a nightmare blend of gothic traditionalism, magical realism and dark fantasy that will haunt you long after you turn its final page.

Readers are calling The Watchful Dead “a ride right off the bat” and “nicely written, with a lyrical quality that kept me turning virtual pages,” and the author “possesses the talents of a classic great writer. “The Horror Fiction Review says, “It’s a gutsy, ambitious, skillful exploration of cosmic/epic dark fantasy that brings something new to both facets of the genres.”

$0.99 on 11/17/2018 – A Murder of Crows by A Kirke

A dead father. A missing Spirit. An ancient manor with way too many locked doors.

Abigail Crowe is willing to accept that no amount of illegal magic will be able to bring her father back from the dead. She's willing to appear proper at the funeral (or at least try). She's even willing to put up with her little brother, William, and his questions about death. But when their mother whisks Abby and her brother south to stay with their estranged uncle, Dr. Edward Crowe, Abby decides she is not willing to ignore the eeriness of ancient Ravenscourt Manor. Screams in the night, an insane gardener, and a murder blamed on her late father are only the beginning.

As Abby breaks the rules to dig deeper into the mysteries surrounding her family's history, she finds that, where magic is involved, things are rarely as simple as they appear.

$FREE on 6/15/2018 – The Velvet Quiet: Volume #1 by Laurel Black

‘The two stared out at the sky. Alex reminisced on what could have been, what he’d already achieved. He thought about Alice, about the lovers he abandoned, the dreams he built for himself. And as the sun kept rising, he couldn't help but turn to Erin then. He titled his chin up, and kissed him once more, their hands still intertwined.

‘Light filled the sky, and just like that, everything faded to white.'

We fell in love within the veil. Our arms caressed our lovers, as we spoke our promises in the dark. We made our vows, and made them ours, no matter what anyone else may think. Our hearts called out to our lovers, and when Death finally comes for us, we'll fall asleep softly, gently.

This short story collection includes His Grey Eyes, Time's Decadence, and The Reaper's Blessing.
