Kate is academically brilliant, but trapped in a dead love and a dry career. And she has an unbearable secret. Horrific and inexplicable accidents at a Viking burial site near Repton, England, bring her face to face with unreason and touch the raw nerve of terror within her. But running is not enough.

Haunted by the malevolent spirit of a long-dead Viking madman, who pursues her, seeking her out for a consummation at which she can only guess, Kate cannot escape. The haunting is relentless and exists only to harm. In Chicago, an innocent man discovers how much. In Dover, thousands die. 

Kate can only keep running. Thrown together in Madrid with Michael McLaren - B movie director - the descent into madness begins. Soon, others are trapped in the same web of terror and together they are thrust back 1200 years into 9th century England to face the Northman. 
Or whatever it is that confronts them. 

For behind the dead Northman lies something with limitless power, infinitely more dangerous - an ancient evil from the dawn of time bent on erasing mankind. 
It may mean ultimate conflict. Ultimate sacrifice. For them all.

For young Gabriel, the walking dead are merely the memories that haunt the eyes of those old enough and lucky enough to have survived.

Zombie Day Care: Impact Series - Book 1
UK Link
B&N Link

"He had dozed off, feeling safe and exhausted, in the middle of nowhere. He laid his head back just for a second, listening to the madness on the satellite radio. America has fallen! Russia has fallen! The Middle East has fallen! He fell asleep.  His eyes snapped open. A shuffle of dirt caught his ear. He wiped the drool from his mouth. The rearview mirror showed nothing. His heart raced. Something was out there. A flicker of movement caught his eye in the side view mirror. He jerked out of the way just as a hand clutched for his neck. He scrambled through the passenger side door and rolled outside." 

The Facility is what the Washington D.C. officials call it. It is a day care for zombie children, tucked deep in the east coast hills. Is there a cure for the zombies? The children of the undead give them the best hope. There are those who think the zombie threat is harmless...and those that don't.

Handmaiden's Fury
Her body, her breasts, her mouth, - None of them belong to her.

Keiri is a Handmaiden of Rydia, one of the Priestess/Temple whores devoted to the Goddess of Passion and Lust. As such, she is a slave to desires which can at times overwhelm her, even as they provide her with strange powers. 

Her body is a tool for her Goddess, to be used for the pleasure and temptations of others. In this novella, Keiri services one of the most powerful and dangerous men she knows, all the while seeking a dangerous secret. He leaves her hungry for more- a deep hunger that can only be satisfied by the tawse of her master, Sire Mattias.

But Keiri stumbles into darkness she never knew was there. Strange assassins pursue her on the streets, and soon, they seem to be seeking her out. What are these strange, inhuman creatures who seem immune to her Goddess' gifts? And what do they want with her?

Now, Keiri and her enigmatic master must delve into secrets which span half a continent. But can they do so while remaining true to their vows to serve their goddess-without giving in to forbidden desire?
The Herald of Autumn
Mythology lives.
It breathes.
It walks the land.

Tommy Maple is a fae- the Herald of Autumn, one of the last of his kind. Every year, with the dawn of fall, he awakens, to again wander the land. Wherever he goes, red leaves and cold wind follows him, and wherever he goes- he hunts. In this young adult fantasy, there are things unseen in the world of men, strange fairy tale things that live in the cracks between places. It is Tommy's place to hunt them, protecting us from the darkness that we cannot see.

As the Untold Age dawns, he is one of the few fae creatures that remains in our world. Creatures borne and breathing stories, fairy tales and magic, and now their age is at an end.

This Autumn , however, is different from those in the past. Tommy awakens to the taunting of an age-old enemy, and is powerless before him. Soon, a sinister tale unfolds- a story that spans centuries and the entire continent, and ends with horror -laden, one bone chilling point.

The Untold Age isn't coming- it's already here.

It's fae harbingers walk the land.

Now Tommy faces a horror unlike anything he has ever faced before. But soon it is obvious that even the last fairy tale cannot stand against the cold horror that comes, and Tommy learns that perhaps, the end is in fact inevitable. Soon, he and his kind may be only mythology.

The Untold Age comes.

LZR-1143: Within (A Zombie Novella)
UK Link
B&N $0.99
No power. No news. No windows. 

No help.

No hope.

In this 20,000 word novella, set in the infection-ravaged world of Bryan James' frightening and sobering universe of zombie mayhem, a normal night shift becomes a surreal test of courage, strength, and selflessness as an unknown illness takes hold of the country. Inside a reinforced bank office building, insulated from outside news for hours, the men and women inside work obliviously, unaware of the rising tide of horror. 

As society outside crumbles, the power fails. Phone lines are down. Communication is impossible, and those trapped within know nothing of the world without. 

Outside the single locked door, an incessant pounding punctuates the oppressive darkness of this modern catacomb, as the employees trapped inside struggle to understand what is happening.

But soon, they will be fighting to merely survive as they come face to face with the threat that appears from where they least expect it: within.

LZR-1143: Perspectives
B&N Link $0.99

In a world overrun by the living dead, every victim has a story. These are some of those stories. This collection of six short stories from a world ravaged by the LZR-1143 virus tell the tale of six different people, all of whom fell victim, in different ways, to the deadly plague. 

From the pilot of a commercial aircraft, overwhelmed in midair, to the lonely soldier stranded high above a world of the undead, the six characters each face their own fears and mortality in different ways. 

This 20,000 word short-story collection features a unique selection of characters from the original zombie novel by Bryan James, LZR-1143: Infection, and from the recently released sequel, LZR-1143: Evolution. Each character appears only fleetingly in the longer novels, but each has their own unique thread in the LZR-1143 storyline, all of which are exposed in these short excerpts from their final hours alive. 

The collection includes The Pilot, The Boy, The Inmate, The Fry Cook, The Subway Passenger, and The Sniper. In The Pilot, a commercial aviator sees his last flight end in a way he never could have imagined. In The Boy, a family trip is cut short, and a lonely homecoming is not at all as he anticipated. We see the surprising genesis and true identity of a traveling companion in The Inmate, while The Fry Cook reveals the final moments of a teenage fast food worker. In The Subway Passenger, we learn that in the case of zombie apocalypse, you’d probably rather be aboveground. And in The Sniper, the surprising truth that there are some fates that cannot be fought, even with a fifty caliber rifle.

Voices from Beyond: Volume 1 (A Horror/Dark Fantasy Short Story Collection)
UK Link

Voices from Beyond Volume 1 is the first volume of short stories written by J. Thorn. The set contains six titles, including "Ten Days," the 2009 New Author Short Story Contest winner.

The Island of Death
UK Link
It had seemed like a simple plan to Jason. Invite a college buddy and two hot chicks from the swim team on the adventure of a lifetime, a boat trip to a deserted volcanic island in the Caribbean. There they would dive the wreck of the pirate ship, the Belladonna, lounge in the sunshine drinking mojitos and have sexy misunderstandings involving bunks and nudity. Throw in a scary story about a voodoo curse and some undead pirates and the girls would be queuing up to take shelter in his manly arms.

The only problem with the plan? The curse was real. 

The Island of Death delivers a racy adventure where the body count and tension mounts to a bloody climax that will leave you breathless.

Bloo describes the book as "the bastard child of The Deep (starring the sexy Jacqueline Bisset and the always awesome Robert Shaw) and John Carpenter's The Fog. Four kids on a beat-up dive boat that find a treasure and have to fight for their lives as modern-day pirates, a voodoo curse and nature itself try to kill them. I wanted to write a book that was constantly moving at a fast pace with no fat, a lot of physical action, chase scenes, gun-play and hellaciously strong, sexy women. I wanted an 87-minute movie that doesn't waste your time. That's The Island of Death."

Pact of the Banshee
UK Link
When the Banshee returns to the village woods and terrifies the villagers with its nightly screams, the cycle of murders start again. Young Sean Collins sets out to find and destroy the menace, but will he succeed when his friends and family turn against him?

The Landlord
UK Link

Forever Fifteen (The Lucia Alberti Series)
UK Link $0.77
B&N Link
Lucy Albert is not your ordinary maladjusted suburban adolescent. Born into the era of the Black Plague in medieval Italy, Lucy is chosen as a mate by the sinister vampire Sebastianus against her will. Struggling to survive in a modern world she cannot identify with, Lucy isn't looking for attention.

Welcome to Forever Fifteen, where a lonely girl seeks refuge in a world awash in everyday brutality, a world where only blood and death can sate her hunger. Journey into Lucy's past as you experience the terror of the Black Death and the harsh reality of womanhood in the Middle Ages. Enter Forever Fifteen, the fast-paced thrill ride that is redefining vampire horror.

Though the plot of this female-protagonist driven novel has similarities to Twilight, Forever Fifteen is NOT recommended for children because of gore, violence, and erotic content.

Trapped - A Novel of Terror

It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal.

Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.

But Martin didn't come back. And neither did Sara when she went in search of him.

Then the laughter stopped.


The group soon began to realize that this deserted island wasn't so deserted after all. And perhaps Martin's ridiculous story had more truth to it than anyone thought.

What's the most horrifying thing you can imagine?

This is a hundred times worse...

Everything Howls
As an early winter whiteout blankets the small town of Keme, a series of grisly murders paints the fresh snowfall in ominous tones. There's a savage killer on the loose, but is it man or beast? With every new clue Sheriff Aaron Bishop uncovers, another reasonable explanation goes out the window, and with each new body discovered another suspect is eliminated. An old Algonquin Indian claims to know the truth and how to end the bloodshed. But his truth is the stuff of legend and his answer too barbarous for Aaron to even consider.

Human No Longer
Jenny and Jeff Sanders become victims of a bizarre crime; leaving Jeff dead and Jenny in a temporary coma. She returns to her children. With Jeff’s death she must move back to her childhood home, a haunted farmhouse, in Summer Haven, Florida, where once they destroyed a family of vampires.
Jenny has no appetite. She’s edgy. Her eyes hurt. She thinks it could be trauma or grief. Until one night she can’t resist the night woods or the overpowering urge to drink warm animals’ blood–and accepts the truth. Her attackers were vampires. 
Now she’s becoming what she once reviled. She can’t abandon her children but must find a way to live in the human world. At night she hunts, in the day hides what she’s becoming and attempts to fit in.
Then townspeople begin dying. Like years before. With her blackouts, she fears she may be the killer, or is it her vampire attackers? For they've found her and demand she joins them–or her family will die. She resists until they kidnap her children. Then she has to find a way to outwit and ultimately destroy them. ***
