$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 4/26/2020 – 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.

$0.99 on 4/7/2020 – WORSHIP THE NIGHT by Mary Vigliante Szydlowski

Her mother’s death freed Lea from a lifetime of emotional, physical, and verbal abuse—sexual repression and frigidity; only to make her the helpless prey of erotic fantasies and diabolical nightmare terror. Alone in her mountain cabin retreat, Lea’s body, her very soul, are subjugated by a phantom from the depths of Hell, who demands that she worship at his evil shrine.
To transform the demon into the flesh-and-blood lover she craves, Lea is forced to commit heinous crimes, until she finally realizes that only the ultimate sacrifice will satisfy her Master’s lust!

$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.”

$FREE on 1/30/2020 – Stories: An Anthology of Short Paranormal Suspense Stories by Tomi Farrell

Divining the difference between reality and the fantastic may not be as simple as it seems. Because the world you think you know may not actually exist…

STORIES is a collection of six short stories loosely based on legends and folklore. Each is set in a modern context, giving the reader an unusual take that yields interesting insight on these traditional tales.

The Snow Woman: a spirit in Japanese folklore who traps people in snowstorms, then uses her icy breath to leave them frost-coated corpses.
The Slit-Mouthed Woman: a figure from Japanese urban legends who, mutilated by her husband, returns as a vengeful soul.
Mare: an evil spirit from Germanic and Slavic folklore that rides on people’s chests while they sleep, bringing on nightmares.
Doppelgänger: the double of a living person that sometimes appears when death is near.
The Bell Witch: a poltergeist that haunted the 19th-century Bell family in Tennessee.
Ondine: the supernatural heroine who tells her husband, “I shall be the shoes on your feet…I shall be the breath in your lungs,” with the caveat that, should he deceive her, he will die.

Each story ends with a twist the reader may not see coming…

$FREE on 10/31/2019 – The Art of Dying Well: Part 1 by Jodi Ralston

In a world where fairies enslave mankind, the undead roam the unsettled prairies, and supernaturally-strong women protect men against both threats, Rede Russell, Jr., seeks escape in the recently opened wild lands thousands of miles to the far east.

This journey means months of mind-numbing isolation and physical hardship seasoned with the occasional threat to his life and freedom. A fair trade for a young man longing to build his own future instead of marrying into one.

But five months into the overland journey, the weary wagon party stumbles upon an oasis of lush grass, fruit-laden orchards, and a refreshing stream—all of which is just a little too inviting for the party’s good.

Despite Rede’s misgivings, the group settles down for an overnight stay: a decision that may cost them their lives. For the magical place isn’t about to let its prey leave, and death may be their only escape.

This is the first in a series of short novels of pioneering adventures, gunslinging imps, butterfly fairies, cosmic horror, and magic stitches.
