The chief of a small village in Africa was taken and thrown into the world of slavery. Weak, hungry and dehydrated; he was forced to continue walking until they met up with a buyer that was in the slave business. Beaten and frail, the chief only had a little bit left to live for, which was slowly being taken away from him. Among his only possessions left was a small wooden pendant beautifully crafted with intricate designs, which was stolen from him by the man who purchased him. He performed one last incantation, offering his spirit to his god, before he collapsed to the ground – dead.
All of those who had a hand in his business would be haunted by his spirit for as long as they lived.
Around a decade or so later, after his parents died, a young man named Richard discovered his mother’s box of personal belongings. Feeling like everything in it was junk and would be tossed out along with the house, he noticed a small antique necklace within the box that he preceded to try on. Richard never planned or could guess what would happen next!

From the best selling and multi award winning author of “Gated” “Asylum” and “Abra-Cadaver” comes a new Horror/Thriller/Murder Mystery to read with the lights on.
They were the best of friends. Four teenagers thrown together on the set of the TV show “Reaper”. It was a late night guilty pleasure of the eighties, a slasher loose in a land of endless fashion victims. But a shadow loomed over the show when a fatal accident claimed the life of the stuntman who wore the Reaper mask.
In a time before the internet and ravenous social media the death was covered up by the studio and only those involved ever knew what really happened as the four young actors were torn apart and sent their separate ways.
Now the eighties show is being resurrected, a second life on the cult convention circuit. Faithful fans who never let the show truly die have garnered enough interest to bring the cast and crew back together.
An isolated mountain top luxury resort seems like the perfect location for a secret meeting to discuss the rebirth of a classic away from prying publicity seeking eyes. Everyone here as their own reasons for coming, the faded pop star, the unemployed actor, the desperate for money and those just seeking to reconnect with lost friends.
The invitations are sent, the rooms are prepared, the phones are of the hook and the do not disturb signs are hung. Lights, Camera, Murder.

A cautionary tale about the consequences of environmental pollution…
They are part of our daily lives. We watch them from our kitchen windows and backyard decks as they scurry over the branches of our tall oak trees. We laugh at their antics as they furiously bury and unbury their precious acorns. Yes, they are part of our lives and, though, sometimes a nuisance, we generally enjoy and tolerate them.
>>>But what happens when something goes wrong?
What happens if some outside force causes their DNA to explode, creating a whole new species? What happens when that species begins to distrust and fear humans?
Brooke Davis, her daughter, Tessa, and their intrepid dog, Petey, are about to find out.
The Night of the Sciurus, A Western Michigan Tale of Terror is a story of environmental horror by multi-award-winning and USA Today bestselling author, Linda Watkins.
Secrets come to light in this supernatural mystery, sending one teen on a journey that will change his life – forever.
Rockport is a small, seaside town. After the new girl’s body is found beneath the iconic, Mermaid Cliff, a group of teens will hunt for the killer or become the next victim. The town is thrust into the national spotlight, forcing an investigation into the town’s darkest secrets.
The townspeople have always preferred to stay out of the spotlight. They have their own traditions and secrets. The most intriguing part of Rockport, however, is the Legend of Mermaid Cliff. It’s not a science fiction story of vampires or werewolves. It’s not a fantasy tale of magic or superpowers. The Legend of Mermaid Cliff is a reminder; a reminder to the townspeople of their sinister past.
One boy, Mark Parker, swears to avenge the death of the girl found murdered beneath the cliff. Mark recruits the help of some friends and begin to unravel the mysteries of Rockport. The events that transpire during the investigation send Mark on a path that will make him question everything he ever knew.

I found this in the horror section, and i immediately downloaded it. Very strong!” Damien Dork
