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.

The Haunted Cabin : A tale of paranormal suspense and ghostly threats

by Michelle Dorey

Meryl was warned...

Her best friend, who happens to be psychic, told her not to go to that cabin with Jordan.
“Not only is it isolated, in the middle of nowhere, but it has a dark history. Two people died there tragically!”

But she’s determined to support her boyfriend Jordan, in his grief. The cabin is now his, bequeathed to him by his favourite uncle. Besides which, Meryl and Jordan are old hands at roughing it in the forest.

Right from the start, the paranormal makes its presence known. A door creaks open on its own, even though the bedroom was locked when she first tired it. That room is a shrine, perfectly intact and there’s a diary—a twisted tale of treachery and deceit. Unexplained noises, cryptic messages left for her, fleeting glimpses of ghostly entities and the eerie sense that she’s being watched.

She is.

The ghosts have been waiting for revenge.

Don’t read this book at night, especially if you’re alone. A chilling, frightening story of ghosts and thrilling supernatural suspense.

However, giving it to them would mean the death of someone you love.

What would you do?

When The Chinese arrive in Ridge Manor, Florida; Sheriff Wayne is the only one who knows they are coming. He tried to warn the rest of the town, but no one would listen, and now it is too late.
Joanna Marks has just come back to town after ten years on the run from her parents who did not want her to have the child she was carrying at only sixteen. The sudden death of her husband and father of her child forces her to come home just in time for the invasion.

As the days pass in the small town, now heavily invaded by soldiers, Joanna and Wayne both realize something is off with this invasion and with their invaders. Why are there so many of them, especially in their little town, and why is the highest in command settling at City Hall? Why are there no airplanes in the sky, tanks or bombs going off? Where is their military and how could they invade the entire country so quickly?

Each step closer to the truth is more terrifying than the last, and Joanna finds herself moving further from the world she knows and soon she dives into a world she did not know existed.

˃˃˃ This exhilarating new novel serves up a double dose of nail-biting, chilling suspense, twists, and shocking revelations as only Willow Rose can. This is determined to terrify you. No one is more addicting than the Queen of Scream.

The outbreak began in New York. Soon it had spread to the rest of the world. People were attacked, infected and they died. Then they came back. Nowhere is safe from the undead.

Bill Wright broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees, he watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead.

He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach safety he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth about the outbreak, a decades old conspiracy and his unwitting part in it.
