Human Remains : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: Go on a heart-stopping chase in this quick suspense. You will be intrigued and on the edge of your seat the entire time!  

Human Remains is an exciting thrill ride.


HUMAN REMAINS is a captivating zombie novella that is sure to have your spine tingling! 

Excerpt: “You can’t be a little pansy ‘all’ your life,” his father spat angrily, before slipping the pint of whiskey out of his back pocket and taking a long, deep swig. A low, satisfied moan escaping his lips as he pulled the bottle away slowly, almost regretfully.

His father then opened a small metal locker in the adjoining wall, and when he reached deep inside and began pulling, a metallic rasp accompanying the movement, out slid a long stainless steel table, on top of which lay something covered by a sheet.

Michael knew instinctively what it was. It could only be one thing, the thing he dreaded the most – cold, dead flesh and big lifeless eyes staring into him, as if seeing him despite the lack of life within the pale, sallow flesh. His dreams had been filled with them ever since he was a kid, for he knew that the day had to come and he had known for a long time.

The time was upon him.

Michael began to cry and turned away shielding his face, but his father grabbed him roughly by the back of his hair, and pulled young Michael’s tear-streaked face towards the sheet-covered form atop the cold steel slab, positioning his face over the clearly defined face beneath. “Now stop it,” Michael’s father screamed in his ear. “You keep cryin’, and I’m gonna ‘give’ you something to cry about alright!”

Incarcerated : Free Kindle eBook

Editor’s Note: Looking for a quick read? We’ve found a zombie story that may be short on length but long on action and entertainment!  

THe gruesome story will keep you on the edge of your seat! 


Book Description: Bill Sanders is an innocent man on death row being wrongfully accused of killing his wife. A new inmate enters the prison with a bite mark on his hand that triggers a zombie outbreak inside and outside of the prison. How will Bill choose? Should he should stay secure in the prison or get back his freedom amongst a zombie apocalypse?

Fans of Max Brooks will love INCARCERATED! 

Author’s Inspiration: A friend of mine is a corrections officer at the prison in Pittsburgh. He would tell me stories of the violence that took place on a daily basis by the prisoners and the danger he had to experience. This gave me a good vision since I have never been in jail. Months later I was watching Stephen King’s “The Stand” on Netflix. There was a scene where one of the villains (Lloyd Henreid) was trapped in a prison cell and there was no one left alive to get him out. I had a cool scene pop in my head of zombies reaching through the bars and immediately started writing.

Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Dylan McDermott

James Straka

  


I’m a big fan of horror whether it’s on television, movies, or reading a good Stephen King book. When I write, I try to cram in as many scary scenes as possible to create a piece of writing that people will find difficult to put down. I live in Monroeville, PA with my wife Julia and our daughter Jillian. Our house is minutes away from the Monroeville Mall, where “Dawn of the Dead” was filmed.

Favorite Food: My favorite food would have to be either Mexican or pizza.

Favorite Place to Write: I write in a spare bedroom that my wife and I converted into an office. I love sitting at my desk and drinking a hot cup of coffee while listening to some 80’s glam metal. For some reason this relaxes me to write more than sitting in silence.

Favorite TV Show: My wife Julia and I are big fans of “The Walking Dead”, “American Horror Story”, True Blood”, and most recently “Bates Motel”.


The Drayton Chronicles : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: Evolution happens over a long period of time. Here’s a collection of stories that document the evolution of a vampire. Thank goodness it won’t take as long to read. 

I could keep reading tales of Drayton if there were more to be had.


Book Description: Drayton once believed he was a vampire. He doesn’t know what he is. Or why he has lived for thousands of years. He takes not his victim’s blood but the silky essence of their soul during their last breath. Often mistaken for the Angel of Death, his victims sometimes ask for forgiveness. Sometimes he delivers. After all, he is not without sin. See how he came to be who he is today in THE DRAYTON CHRONICLES. 

Author’s Inspiration: Drayton started out a single novella after I’d gone to a theatrical presentation of Dracula. It seemed to me that if a vampire did exist, would it evolve like a human, moving from animal instincts to compassionate awareness when given thousands of years of immortality and unmatched power. And, if so, what would he look like?

Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Djimon Hounsou

From the Book: An angel. Of course, he was the Angel of Death. Blake hadn’t thought it would be so literal, an actual boy coming for him, but then again this was his first time dying. Somehow he pictured Death wearing a black cloak riding a fire-spitting black horse. Big fangs. The stink of death preceding him like a rotting corpse. Turned out Death was a boy with a respectful disposition. Who would’ve guessed?

Loose Ends : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: We’ve found a cozy paranormal mystery that had us wanting more. It’s a quick read but full of action and intrigue. So get it and see for yourself! 

Loose Ends is spooky, funny, and left me wanting more!


Book Description: Mary O’Reilly, a former Chicago cop, has a secret – she can see dead people. As a private investigator, it’s great skill to have when you’re trying to find the bad guys. As a fairly new resident in the small town of Freeport, it can lead people to some incorrect and fairly outlandish conclusions. This time, when she’s investigating the murders of five little girls by a serial killer, it can lead to her death.

Readers who love Dearly Departed in Deadwood, Ghost Whisperer, and A Hidden Witch will enjoy LOOSE ENDS. 

Author’s Inspiration: As a freelance writer for a local newspaper, I was given the assignment to write the feature article for the Halloween section. Imagine my surprise when I met with many people who had ghostly experiences of their own. Five years and hundreds of stories later, I knew it was time to write my own story.

Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Emma Stone

From the Book: She turned in her bed and looked up at him. He was dressed in gray, a Union soldier. His uniform was riddled with bullet holes and thick, red blood slowly seeped from each opening. But the blood dripping on her bed was not coming from those oozing apertures. No, the blood dripped from the stump where his head used to be.

Plunk. Plunk. Plunk.

She watched as the blood pooled on the comforter.

“Crap, this is going to stain!”

She closed her eyes for a moment and then pushed herself up in her bed. 

“Look, I’ve just had a really bad day and I can’t deal with you tonight. Okay?”

He paused… and straightened. After contemplating her response for a moment, he shrugged his shoulders, turned and slowly shuffled out of the room.

“And try to keep your blood off the new tiles in the kitchen,” she called after him.

Depending on what scene I’m writing, I will listen to Celtic music, New Age Music or good old Rock and Roll.

A Soul To Steal (The Sanheim Chronicles, Book One) : Free Kindle Book

Editor’s Note: We got chills from reading this supernatural thriller! Check this one out if you want a good heart racing read! 

It has both the twists and turns of a clever whodunit and the edginess of a supernatural thriller.


Book Description: Two reporters on the trail of a serial killer discover he’s not the only monster haunting their town. A gripping supernatural thriller featured on USA Today, A Soul to Steal combines mystery, suspense and urban fantasy. Readers have praised it for its intense plotting and riveting characters.

Those who enjoy Stephen King, Jim Butcher, and Joss Whedon will like A SOUL TO STEAL.  

Author’s Inspiration:  In third grade, my class was shown the Disney cartoon version of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” I never fully recovered. Since that time, I’ve been a huge fan of the Headless Horseman. When I wrote my first novel, I wanted to bring the character back in a way that didn’t rehash Washington Irving’s classic. 

Ultimately, I created a trilogy of novels (the third one hasn’t been released yet) that incorporates the Headless Horseman into a totally different mythology set in the modern world.

From the Book: Change is inevitable, but there are times in life when we must make a stand. I intend to do so. My medium is the one best understood by every being on this planet, from the lowly maggot to us—fear. 

I will be the thing people fear. And for all time, my name will send a shiver down everyone’s spine. It will become synonymous with the creeping darkness. 

Today is the first day of October. By the end of it, five women, five men and five children will be rotting in the ground. You cannot stop me, just as you cannot stop change. I am night. I am cold. I am flesh rent and torn. I am steel. I am the harbinger of fall: I am death.

You can call me Lord Halloween.

Rob Blackwell

  


Rob Blackwell has only ever wanted to be a writer. He graduated college and became a journalist, eventually working his way to become Washington bureau chief of a national newspaper. In his spare time, he started writing novels, finally putting those stories that had been rattling around his head to paper.

He is the author of two novels, “A Soul to Steal,” and its sequel, “Band of Demons.” He is currently working on the third book in The Sanheim Chronicles trilogy and the start of a new urban fantasy series. He lives in Virginia with his wife and two children.

Favorite Music:  I am currently obsessed with what’s called “Epic Trailer” music. This is music that’s been used for movie trailers but isn’t included in the actual film. It’s usually grand, sweeping and perfect for listening to while writing. Honestly, I enjoy it so much I listen to it in the car, on my bike, etc. It makes me feel like I’m living in a really cool movie.
