Something is terribly wrong in Detroit.
When Chris and Sarah bought an abandoned library to renovate and live in, they expected to be on the ground floor of the revival of Detroit. But unbeknownst to them, the city is about to fall. The devastation begins with a single woman who mysteriously tears off her clothing and starts walking the perimeter of an empty lot. Within minutes, hundreds of disparate people inexplicably join her to form a giant human circle slowly revolving like a hurricane of flesh. Moved by inexorable forces, they twitch and spasm, contorting their naked bodies in a primordial death dance. They’re oblivious to everything, even the unfortunate souls who fall beneath their feet.
Bewildered citizens and authorities are desperate to know what’s causing the bizarre event… at least until it starts to rain.
Chris and Sarah abruptly find themselves trapped in a forsaken city. To survive, they must evade the horrifying illness, find food and shelter in a suddenly primitive world… and have a battle plan for when the circle stops spinning…
The Dead Circle has 342 pages in print.

From the award-winning author of the Outlaw King series comes another harrowing adventure in the grand tradition of Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Charlaine Harris.

Robin Martine has come a long way.
She's not your usual college-age girl. More often than not, Robin's washing a load of gory clothes at the laundromat, or down at the lake throwing hatchets at pumpkins. She lives in an old van, collects swords, and dyes her mohawk blue.

Also, she kills witches for a living on YouTube.
You see, Robin's life was turned upside down by those hideous banshees from Hell. She spent high-school in a psych ward, drugged out of her head for telling the cops her mother Annie was murdered with magic. Magic from a witch named Marilyn Cutty.

After a 3-year warpath across America, she's come home to end Cutty for good.
But she'll have to battle hog-monsters, a city full of raving maniacs, and a killer henchman called the "Serpent" if she wants to end the coven's reign over the town of Blackfield once and for all.

Lightning flashes. Another child disappears…
When Zorka Circus performs, its big top roars with laughter and cheers, but when it moves on, there are fewer children in the European towns it leaves behind.
Circus Security Chief Rurik suspects a killer hides among the international performers, but they close ranks—they’ve always viewed lightning-scarred Rurik as the monster. Nevertheless, he's determined to find the culprit and stop them before anyone else dies and the only place he can call home is ripped apart by the murders.
Into Zorka Circus comes the Skomori clan, despised as gravediggers and ghoulish bloodwalkers. A one-day truce allows bloodwalker Sylvie to marry. Instead, she finds a body. Alerting others will defy her clan’s strict rules, break the truce, and leave her an outcast.
When more bodies turn up, the killer's trail becomes impossible to ignore. Rurik and Sylvie must follow the clues—even if they lead to something unimaginable.

Awesome Indies: Invisible Shores by Oliver Kennett

Awesome Indies: Invisible Shores by Oliver Kennett

For more information, check out the Awesome Indies page Tell us about yourself I’m Ollie, I’m 35, I’m blind and I’m a writer. I have written several short stories in the genres of horror and paranormal erotica. Invisible Shores South America is my first full length novel and my first attempt at non-fiction writing. I’m currently working on a series of thrillers which I’m very excited about. I was bitten by a radioactive mole. What was the hardest part of writing this book? As this is my first attempt at writing a full length book, the hardest part was swallowing that mingled fear and self doubt which mountain climbers must feel before scaling Everest. Short stories are far easier and can be done in a morning, but keeping focus for a couple of months… That is hard. I struggle with a short attention span, I can become almost obsessive with projects and I have worked out the window is three weeks. As this book took several months, all told, over several years, I’m pretty chuffed that I reached the summit and was able to plan that most wonderful of flags on the final page, ‘The End’. What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why? I enjoyed writing all of the book as it gave me the opportunity to return to South America and relive our adventures. […]

Awesome Indies: Ash and the Prince by Katie Doyle

Awesome Indies: Ash and the Prince by Katie Doyle

For more information, check out the Awesome Indies page CHAPTER ONE I stared at the candlewick and pretended to will it to light. Honestly, I probably spent more energy pretending in my magic lessons than if I actually used magic. I didnÂ’t want to though. “Ashley, will you please light the candle?” Mom asked. “I know youÂ’re not really trying.” She sat across from me with her hands folded on top of the table. Her normally blue eyes swirled acid green—something visible to other people with magic—and her blonde hair, clipped back out of her face, moved as if touched by a light breeze. “You know I donÂ’t want to be here.” “And you know you could be one of the most powerful witches in the world if you just put forth a little effort.” “So youÂ’ve told me every day of my life,” I leaned back in my chair and scrubbed my face with my hands. WeÂ’d been in the library for two hours. My butt had pins and needles from the hard chair and my legs were like ghosts. “Why is it so important to you?” She stood up and took the candle from the table. “I want you to live up to your full potential.” It was the same line of BS she fed to me every time I asked. She used to tell me I was going to be the most powerful witch […]

Awesome Indies: The Hidden and the Maiden by Eben Mishkin

Awesome Indies: The Hidden and the Maiden by Eben Mishkin

For more information, check out the Awesome Indies page I have heard so many amazing things about this book. It was one of the first books that was recommended to me for this project and its one that’s I’m so excited to feature. Plus, this interview was very fun to read. Definitely look at the dream movie cast. Eben Mishkin put some deep thought into it! What inspires you? I find a bit of everything inspires me but mostly I’m fascinated by the way modern mythology works: that we are so dismissive of the idea of myth but still live our lives according to mythological structures. I’m continuously interested in the way that story presses in on our lives, that we believe things that patently aren’t so to the extent that it might as well be real. So my fundamental inspiration is the idea that myths still rule our lives and trying to play with that by having the myths come literally true in the middle of what should be normal life. Plus, these days we get comparative mythology, the idea that the stories that govern our lives are descended from common heritages the same way we are all descended from a few common ancestors. I love finding old stories and connections between them. A lot of the joy in writing The Hidden and the Maiden was in researching […]

Awesome Indies: Mermaids Vs. Unicorns by Scott King

Awesome Indies: Mermaids Vs. Unicorns by Scott King

For more information, check out the Awesome Indies page Scott is a friend who bridges the board game/book gap. He plays board games. He takes excellent board game photos for companies and sells a calendar every year. He also is a talented writer of quite a few books in a variety of genres. When I first asked if I could interview him about his latest middle grade title, this is what he sent me. Pizza. The first time I saw the music video for “Take on Me” played on MTV. I always wondered who would win a fight between Conan OÂ’brien and Stephen Colbert. I got stitches growing up because once at a beach house I was jumping between two twin beds singing “No More Monkeys Jumping On The Bed” and I fell and cracked my head open. The only rule I have is butt in chair. But coffee helps. If I have to wear a tie itÂ’s a christmas tie, even if its in the summer. I absolutely hate cooking even though IÂ’m good at it. As a kid my family had a restaurant and when I got in trouble my punishment was to go downstairs and work the lunch line. Gilmore Girls. I donÂ’t think vampires are real but youÂ’ll never convince me that unicorns arenÂ’t. I use a notebook. Then he actually answered my questions 🙂 […]
