FREE Halloween Horror


Five miles from the New Mexico border, an earthquake measuring 7.5 on the Richter scale shook the small town of Coyote Pass, Texas at exactly 6 PM causing a blackout. The ground was cracked for miles. A shrouded figure crept out of one of the fissures.

The members of the Cottonwood Pack think the blackout is really cool, especially since it hit on Halloween night. They load two cases of beer and a Ouija board into a minivan. Drive to the abandoned Dark Road Cemetery, hoping to conjure up a ghost or two.

Something much more terrifying is already there.

LONG NIGHT MOON (Book 1 of 13)
Moved by the success of her debut novel, twenty-six-year-old BJ Donovan of New Orleans, Louisiana can’t handle the thoughts of being a one-hit wonder and never feeling special ever again.

Using her position as the executive chef and owner of a popular restaurant in the French Quarter to blend in with the community she embarks on a killing spree, by means of voodoo magic, and uses details of the murders to maintain her best-seller status with an episodic thriller series.

While the body count rises—from her brother’s girlfriend, found mutilated at an abandoned farmhouse, to an undercover cop murdered in a dark alley on the riverside—BJ tries to remain above suspicion as she continues to write the wrongs in her world.

This And That

I'm extending the free period for Captivity and Long Nights Moon, since they are getting a lot of downloads.

Still working full-time in retail. What I do there is physically demanding, tiring, and unfulfilling at times. But, I'm no quitter.

Found an extensive list of places to advertise my free books. Plan to get started on this way before the holiday shopping season begins.

FREE -- Until?



CAPTIVITY
The gruesome discovery of a woman’s corpse in the small tourist resort of Point Jove, Missouri draws Sheriff Josh Wolfe, a widower who enjoys tinkering with his award winning hot rod, into the most perilous case of his career. Hounded by the townsfolk and media, Wolfe exhausts every conventional method for solving the crime.

The investigation comes to a standstill. Then, four more residents disappear. Everyone is convinced Rhone County is harboring a serial kidnapper who chooses his victims by chance. Wolfe believes the people are not only related to one another but are somehow tied to the last surviving member of the county’s namesake.

Time is not only running out for Sheriff Wolfe but for his lover, dissatisfied wife of a homebuilder, held against her will at the Rhone family’s abandoned sawmill where spilled gasoline awaits a lighted match.
