Through the Ages

It’s darkest before the dawn, but is it darker than a vampire’s soul?

For 400 Years Saito Izumi Has Struggled with What It Means to be Kyuuketsuki–A Japanese Vampire!

In Feudal Japan, during an attack on Kumamoto Castle from a horde of swarming y?kai— mythical creatures born from the darkest depths of Japanese folklore—the samurai Saito Izumi will be forever changed. By morning’s dawn, Saito will be kyuuketsuki, a Japanese vampire!

Join Saito in Feudal Japan as she confronts an army of thunder-beasts, ogre-like oni, and the seductive spider-whore jor?gumo. Creatures as diverse as they are deadly. Then travel with the former samurai as she battles 18th Century Spanish soldiers and vampires along the Spanish Main. Stand with her as she wages war against shape-shifting Mexican nagual, fighting alongside the likes of Davy Crockett, William Travis, and James Bowie to defend the Alamo.

In this heart-wrenching collection of original stories are four terrifying tales from Saito Izumi’s centuries of existing—she doesn’t consider it living—that explore her dangerous and deep personal journey to understand the blackest darkness of an inhuman soul, to discover what it means to live and not simply survive, and most important of all, to learn if a vampire can triumph over evil and truly love again.

The Irish Cycle Series – A unique urban fantasy adventure with a mix of mythological and supernatural elements set in contemporary and historical America.


Meet David Miller

Broken World

Follow a group of survivors on a journey that spans eleven books and twenty years as they search for safety in a world overrun by the dead…

When a deadly virus sweeps the country, Vivian sets out for California in hopes of seeing the daughter she gave up for adoption. Then her car breaks down and she’s faced with a choice: give up or accept a ride from redneck brothers, Angus and Axl. Vivian knows getting in the car with strangers is a risk, but with time running out, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to reach her daughter.

The virus is spreading, and by the time the group makes it to California, most of the population has already been wiped out. When the dead start coming back, Vivian and the others realize that no electricity or running water are the least of their concerns. Now Vivian must learn how to be a mom under the most frightening circumstances, cope with Angus’s aggressive mood swings, and sort out her growing attraction to his brooding younger brother, Axl.

While searching for a safe place to go, the group meets a pompous billionaire who may be the answer to all their problems. Trusting him means going into the middle of the Mojave Desert and possibly risking their lives, but with the streets overrun and nowhere else to turn, he might be their only chance for survival…

Ekleipsis

The sun has finally set on humanity…

What happens when we give in to the darkness?

Ékleipsis is a debut short story collection written by Canadian author Tamel Wino, with hints of Chuck Palahniuk’s and Cormac McCarthy’s stripped, vivid writing styles. This gripping book explores the havoc wreaked when ordinary people abandon their humanity to pursue their darkest desires, and questions just how far people will go to follow their baser instincts.

Each story takes a version of a person we’ve known in our own lives and transforms them into something completely unnerving—yet all too familiar.

These dark, complex characters and twisted tales of the once ordinary will change your perception of humanity forever.

She’s determined to find out.
But when people start to disappear, she finds herself in a race against time. 
Trying to use her unique talent to escape the barrier that is closing in around them. Hoping that she can save her companions from the strange creatures that are lurking in the woods.

Tract

The truth has never been this dangerous…or this exciting

Fifteen years ago, John Kimberley walked out of his partner’s office and never looked back. He didn’t want to. It was easier to believe that he was heading for a stellar career and a future unburdened by huge student loans. The career proved to be rich and rewarding. His financial health—likewise. There was that other nagging consideration that surfaced now and then; a nasty little voice that kept whispering that he sacrificed the love-of-his-life for prestige and money. But he knew how to ignore it.

Then a sinkhole opened up in Arizona, swallowing a refinery, one of his employer’s subsidiaries. A significant loss. Certainly, worthy of further scrutiny. For a change, he needs to do field work in a research library where he discovers a list of natural disasters that spans decades. The one thing these natural phenomena have in common, is that they had all targeted his employer’s holdings. A joint venture here, a subsidiary there. His corporate employer sure seems to be the type of business that is every insurer’s nightmare.

Until John finds a pattern and a thread that begs to be pulled. A man who had no business being in Arizona, was caught on the security cameras, and appeared to be casing the refinery. The next step would be to find out what the man had to say for himself. Except he’s off on a field assignment—and heading for Alaska and so is a research team of scientists, aiming to hold field trials of a new product. The project leader is someone who has not been part of John’s life for the last fifteen years. He swore to never speak her name again. But a few days later, when a new tragedy claims many lives, including the man John had hoped to find, he knows that old wounds will have to remain hidden even as new ones open up. And suddenly, he is faced with so many choices, pulled in so many directions that running away is not an option. At least not this time. He knows that there is something terribly wrong with the island…he just doesn’t know how terribly wrong it is to try and find out.


Burning Rains

Rain, rain, go away, DON’T come back another day…..

After a spell in jail for the manslaughter of her abusive husband, all Brooklyn Lewis was wanting was an escape. She heads off to the Sierra Mountains to stay in her parents’ idyllic cabin in the Sierra Mountains where she’s just planning on having some quality R & R.

Cole Denvers – he’s on his annual camping and fishing trip, set up camp on the shores of the Old Ridge Lake and is counting on catching some quality fish

But when the skies suddenly darken and the wolves begin to howl, Brook and Cole realise that the blissful break they were looking forward to is fast turning into an ordeal from hell rather than an idyll of a heaven.

As the nightmarish horrors clash around them, Brook and Cole find themselves thrown together. Now their only goal is to make it home alive, but with acid falling from the sky and wolves haunting their shadows, will the two be able to make it out of the mountains alive? 

Find out if Brooklyn and Cole can survive when the world is falling apart around them in Burning Rains, book one of the Mayhem & Madness Series by upcoming author Sam J. Fires.
