Horror

Do creaks in your house send chills rattling up and down your spine?  Are there shadows around your house that you think may be looking back at you?  (Okay, if that's the case, you may want to see a physician).  When you need true, deep fright, check out our Horror ebooks.  All of our authors are masters of horror, and they want you to read their ebooks for free or a very discounted price.

 

Definition of the "Horror Genre": Your primal fears are what authors in the Horror genre seek to evoke.  And, not just evoke, but to make you feel emotions after arousing those fears.  Masters of this genre can even make you feel psychological and physical responses to their stories.  Horror may be getting more difficult to create, because for centuries authors in the Horror genre used fear of the unknown to move their readers.  The unknown, to a certain extent, does not exist anymore.  Our authors in this genre are therefore always seeking the next unknown and the next way to elicit your basest fears.

 

Some examples of bestselling Horror ebooks are Stephen King (The Shining), J.D. Horn (The Line), Anne Rice (Prince Lestat) and Edgar Allen Poe (The Raven,, The Tell-Tale Heart).  As an aside, we could have listed all Stephen King ebooks.  His prolific backlog of bestselling horror ebooks is mind boggling.

Sam's Song: A Sam Smith Mystery (The Sam Smith Mystery Series Book 1)

by Hannah Howe


An audio book of Sam's Song, narrated by Suzan Lynn Lorraine, is now available from Amazon, Audible and iTunes.

Love Hurts. For Derwena de Caro, songstress, female icon, teenage dream, success brought drugs, alcohol and a philandering boyfriend. It also brought wealth, fame and a stalker, or so she claimed. And that’s where I came in, to investigate the identity of the stalker, little realising that the trail would lead to murder and a scandal that would make the newspaper headlines for months on end.

Love Hurts. For me, Samantha Smith, Enquiry Agent, love arrived at the end of a fist. First, I had to contend with an alcoholic mother, who took her frustrations out on me throughout my childhood, then my husband, Dan, who regarded domestic violence as an integral part of marriage. But I survived. I obtained a divorce, kept my sense of humour and retained an air of optimism. I established my business and gained the respect of my peers. However, I was not prepared for Dan when he re-entered my life, or for the affection showered on me by Dr Alan Storey, a compassionate and rather handsome psychologist.

Sam’s Song. This is the story of a week that changed my life forever.

He cowers amongst the embassy staff praying for extraction from the hands of death, fearing his part to play in the epidemic.

The Haunting of Cabin Green: A Modern Gothic Horror Novel

by April A. Taylor

"Unique... claustrophobic... and what an ending...[It's a] sucker punch." - HorrorTalk

"A spectacular read...absolutely gripping. I couldn't force myself to put it down." - The Horror Report

Welcome to Cabin Green, where the setting is familiar, but the story is completely unexpected. This original, terrifying psychological thriller is the debut horror novel from the author of the highly-rated Alexa Bentley Paranormal Mysteries Series. Socially conscious, inclusive, and raw modern Gothic horror that reflects the world around us and takes a close look at the destructive nature of grief. Ideal for fans of raw horror shows/movies such as The Haunting of Hill House (2018) and Hereditary.


Going to Cabin Green alone after the death of his fiancée was Ben's first mistake. His second mistake was tempting fate by saying, "There's no such thing as an evil building." Now he's caught in a nightmare of his own making deep in the woods of Northern Michigan. Even worse, a family history of mental illness makes it impossible for him to know if the ghosts haunting the cabin are real or all in his head.

This modern Gothic horror story takes the reader directly into Ben's hellish experience. Is he crazy? Is a ghost haunting him? The only way to find out is to make it to the end of this deep, dark thrill ride that's filled with more twists than a roller coaster.

This book was inspired by a real-life, spooky green cabin in Northern Michigan that's so well-hidden it can't be found by GPS!

Within this novel, you'll be taken back and forth in time. The time frames are indicated by clear markers. These time jumps provide valuable background information about the main characters and allow you to get to know them more intimately. These jumps are also used as a device to weave a thread throughout the entire book that provides clues about the cabin's sinister secrets. Pay close attention: Can you guess the shocking ending?

Content Warning: This isn't a Saw-type torture story, but it does contain gore, sex, profanity, and deeply disturbing psychological themes. This isn't a fluffy horror story; it's emblematic of the destructive, devastating nature of grief. Readers are taken directly into the main character's experience, which means that feelings of confusion are normal and intentional. Until Ben knows what's going on, readers won't know, either! For mature readers only.

"Unique... the author depicts the grieving process amazingly well. The story is claustrophobic... and what an ending. All of the flashbacks and delusions suddenly make sense... [it's a] sucker punch." - Jennifer Turner, HorrorTalk.com

"A literary treat... exceptionally written and beautifully descriptive... it is written so intelligently that the very plot may leave some who are not well versed in abstract twist endings confused and wanting... artistic, psychological... very progressive. A true modern horror classic." - Amazon Reviewer

"A tale of love lost, terror of the mind, and ghostly haunting, this book takes you on a harrowing journey that keeps you guessing until the end. A great read!" - Goodreads Reviewer

But what really goes on inside Slade House? For those who find out, it’s already too late. . . .

When a deadly virus sweeps the country, Vivian Thomas 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.

While searching for a safe place to go, they pick up a pompous billionaire who may be the answer to all their problems.

Immortals' Requiem

by Vincent Bobbe


There are beings that live a shadow's breadth from our reality. They are the dreams and nightmares of humanity, the ancient seeds of fairy-tale and superstition.

These are the Immortals, creatures of magic that should live forever... and they are fading.

When a horror two thousand years dead returns to contemporary England, creatures long thought lost to myth and legend collide in a scramble for survival that could tumble civilisation back into the dark ages of blood and death.

If you like urban fantasy, ravening zombies, terrifying shapeshifters, scheming vampires, and vast supernatural worlds, you’ll love Immortals' Requiem!

Overview

Immortals' Requiem is a dark urban fantasy in a contemporary setting. The story is a fast paced adventure with strong characters in a vast world and has already won awards. Though there has been a recent trend within the genre towards young adult fiction, Immortals’ Requiem is written for adult audiences (due to scenes of violence, NOT erotica).

Please note, this book is written in the 3rd person from the point of view of various different characters. If your preference is for stories that follow a single character on their adventure then you might want to pass. However, if you are comfortable with multiple character timelines running in parallel that clash together with huge momentum... then you are in the right place!

Content Advisory: This book is intended for mature audiences and contains graphic violence.
