A Gray Life by Red Harvey

When the city falls apart, and humans become something other, three people fight to survive the New World.

Juniper Jones is an empath with a past full of love lost and death. When the city starts to crumble, she feels at home in the darkness. Her job as a prostitute makes for easy living, as she can anticipate her client’s emotions. She never imagines using her abilities to help anyone, until she meets Ashley Heard.

Ashley witnesses her father’s murder at the hands of home invaders and is forced to flee a decaying city. When she meets Juniper, she has no choice but to follow the only adult who hasn’t yet tried to kill her.

Meanwhile, a twelve-year old boy chronicles his experiences as a captive in a deranged man’s basement, all the time wondering about the fate of his friend, Ashley. Together with other captives, he plans an escape. However, once Outside, the survivors encounter monsters of a different kind.

Despite their hellish surroundings, three people manage to briefly connect in their efforts to navigate a strange and harsh New World.

Simone has been a Christian for a long time. Her faith has helped her build a perfectly normal life. After years of struggling against the voices that only she could hear, a normal life is all she really wanted. But when an angelic being approaches her with a plea to intercede between mankind and those who are “other” her eyes are opened to the fact that her idea of God and creation have been far too small.

In the name of safety, the elders have shut out the outside world and demanded a culture of strict conformity. Shifrah’s differences create a mental prison from which she cannot escape–until Donovan rides into town.

The Blood Drinker, Donovan, son of the ancient Prophetess, has come to warn that the demon queen has rallied her army to attack the city. He implores them to disperse across the land, trusting in That Which Is to protect them. The city’s leaders remain adamant that safety is found in the fortress they have built, but, as tensions rise, Shifrah uncovers the gruesome truth of their secret attempts to appease the Bloodless.

Donovan decides to change Shifrah into a Blood Drinker. Combined with her Gifts, she’ll be as powerful as the gods, but she can’t save her people until she learns to overcome her own dark appetites by embracing her dark nature.


List of Thirteen by E.A. Comiskey

Available in Winter 2018

If Jim C. Hines wrote about Gilmore Girls taking a journey through the underworld, it might be a little something like A LIST OF THIRTEEN.

Death sucks, but there’s good beer in Purgatory.

Alice and her adult daughter, Claire, created a “bucket list” of thirteen experiences they would seek out before Alice died from cancer. They never expected to die in a plane crash attempting to cross off number three. Now, mother and daughter are stuck in the underworld, unable to move on to their ultimate destiny until they finish the list, but finding an Irish Pub near the Fields of Asphodel, or swimming naked in the ocean while being pursued by bloodthirsty Aztecs and a smitten Egyptian god is as hard as it sounds. When everything they ever thought they knew is challenged, will faith be enough to carry them through?

A LIST OF THIRTEEN moves between the time after Alice’s death and the time before, allowing the reader to explore the way her relationships evolve and intertwine throughout her life and beyond.


Chasing Butterflies by Rod Martinez

Available on Amazon

Devastation is coming, not just for Palm Creek, Florida – a small town just a few miles from Cape Kennedy and N.A.S.A. – but eventually – it could destroy the entire eastern Florida coast if it isn’t stopped. A predator with mysterious origins and no understanding of its inherent danger is on the prowl with seemingly nothing that can stop it. It hosts a cancer of epic proportions, not only the kind that eats away at your body – it’s also the kind that transforms your soul. Four total strangers from different walks of life will be on a mission, they just don’t know it yet. And the decisions and outcomes of these four unlikely friends will either save or destroy the populace.


Cursed by Red Harvey

Available on Amazon

Imogen can see the future, not that it does her much good. When ancient spirits haunt her, seeking re-entry into the human world, she struggles for answers. Yet, it’s only after the spirits succeed in using Imogen’s body as their new vessel that her real journey to save the Earth begins. Imogen’s gift makes her vulnerable to spirits that desire reincarnation. When she moves back to Graydon, she begins a new life. And Imogen’s new boyfriend, Rafe, seems to know more about her powers than she does… Once another psychic informs Imogen of her impending death, she tries everything she can think of to prevent it, even as she knows her fate is inevitable. Once she’s dead, Imogen’s true test of character is how she can stop the body-thieving demons from destroying all of mankind. “Cursed” is a paranormal horror story fraught with surprises, humor, and old clichés turned on their heads. Readers hunting for a paranormal read with a Buffy-esque twist are sure to enjoy.

Beyond Falcon’s Reach by Jay Northearn

Available in Summer 2018

The story bears a powerful vampire theme with Gothic, medieval and steam-punk fantasy elements. The classic hallmarks of the genre are subverted in two ways: the non-terrestrial environment, and transformation from classic Gothic villain to haunted redemption seeker.

This takes place against the background of an ancient treaty between land-folk and the blood-dependent mountain people, now at a precipice as a new Ice Age converges and a rising evil in Farr City threatens all.

Craving power and near-immortality, Mourde Cullis of Falcon’s Reach produces a mythical blood-elixir under the auspices of a fanatical cult, but after capturing the daughter of a Landmaster the consequences are disastrous. A colourful character menagerie of different origins and outlooks must come together against a sinister, absolutist threat.
