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.

Nightwalk

by D. Nathan Hilliard

Welcome to Coventry Woods,
...a tranquil, middle class neighborhood where trees turn the streets into shady tunnels, soccer moms jog on secluded paths, and backyard barbeques are weekend staples. It's a quiet, urban example of the American dream. Here businessmen are neighbors with radio DJs, young doctors buy their first houses, and author Mark Garrett has been settling in with his lovely new wife and stepdaughter.
But tonight Mark's new neighborhood is going to come with something he never bargained on.
The pits of hell have yawned wide and poured their contents into the midnight streets and homes of Coventry Woods. Everything has gone insane. Shots and screams ring out in the night, while death stalks the darkness in forms this earth has never before seen. Even worse, the only hope of escape is by foot.
Now Mark, along with his stepdaughter and his back-fence neighbor, must flee the neighborhood while attempting to help anybody they meet. And it won't be easy. They will be walking a gauntlet of unearthly predators, as they strive toward a goal they aren't even sure still exists...the outside world.

It’s an offer he can’t refuse: Stan has to deliver the world’s biggest movie star on a non-silver platter, or find himself on the menu instead. He’s forced on a twisted road trip through nightmare America, and his new companion doesn’t mind driving through the night.

Stan only has a few days to figure out this perplexing woman with a monstrous hunger for blood and an all-too-human obsession with fame. Her power seems god-like, but he’s been in tough situations before. Maybe he can at least save his dog. The bigger issue is that to the perfect paparazzo, a star who doesn’t want to be found is as dangerous as any monster.

Surviving The Evacuation, Book 1: London

by Frank Tayell

 

Would you survive the evacuation?


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.

As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The press was nationalised. Martial law, curfews and rationing were implemented. It wasn’t enough. An evacuation was planned. The inland towns and cities of the UK would be evacuated to defensive enclaves being built around the coast, in the Scottish Highlands and in the Irish Republic.

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.

The first novel in the post-apocalyptic series “Surviving The Evacuation”. (74,000 words)

Freshmen (The Felix Chronicles Book 1)

by R.T. Lowe

“Imagine if Voldemort was the Chosen One. A dark and wonderfully disturbing urban fantasy that sets a new standard for those seeking an epic adventure high on substance, grit and originality.”

Reeling from a terrible accident that claimed the lives of his parents, Felix arrives at Portland College hoping only to survive the experience. In time, however, with the help of his reality star roommate, and Allison, his friend from home, he immerses himself in the distractions of college life and gradually dares to believe he can put his past behind him.

But a fateful storm looms on the horizon: In the nearby woods, two hikers become the latest victims in a series of gruesome murders; a disfigured giant embarks on a vicious cross-country rampage, killing teenagers who fail his ‘test’; an ancient society of assassins tasked with eradicating the wielders of a mysterious source of power awakens after a long silence; and a grassroots movement emerges from the shadows to capture the public’s imagination, its hidden agenda as revolutionary and terrifying as the man who created it. Only one man—the school’s groundskeeper—knows that the seemingly unrelated events are connected, and that an eighteen-year-old boy stands in the center of the storm.

The Haunting of Ashburn House

by Darcy Coates

There's something wrong with Ashburn House...

When Adrienne inherits her great-aunt's sprawling, gothic home, it seems like an incredible stroke of luck. She arrives on the doorstep with only a suitcase of luggage, twenty dollars, and her pet cat. Ashburn House is a lifeline she can't afford to refuse.

Adrienne doesn't believe in ghosts, but it's hard to ignore the unease that grows as she explores her new home. Strange messages have been etched into the wallpaper. An old grave is hidden in the forest behind the house. And eerie portraits in the upstairs hall seem to watch her every movement.

As she uncovers more of the house's secrets, Adrienne begins to believe the whispered rumours about Ashburn and its deceased owner may hold more truth than she ever suspected. The building has a bleak and grisly past, and as she chases the threads of a decades-old mystery, Adrienne realises she's become the prey to something deeply unnatural and intensely resentful.

Blood, Smoke and Ashes

by Bradley Convissar

In the Fall of 1955, the state of Nevada used the electric chair to execute a prisoner for the first time.

It was also the last time.

Molly Blackburn, nicknamed Jane the Ripper by the Las Vegas press after killing eleven men while posing as a prostitute, was strapped to the chair without incident. The switch was flipped.

Everything after that went horribly wrong.

Since that day, a copycat Jane the Ripper has appeared almost every decade in a different city, mimicking Molly's choice in victims as well as her methods of murder. She kills eleven men then disappears, never to be found. The similarities between the bodies left behind each decade is uncanny. As if they are all the victims of the same murderer, not a copycat.

But that's impossible, of course, because Molly Blackburn is dead, her execution witnessed by a dozen people.

FBI Agent Jack Shaw, the lead investigator in the Jane the Ripper cases since the seventies, finally catches a break in 2009 when the intended fifth victim manages to turn the tables on the newest copycat . Everyone believes that the horror has finally ended with her capture. Shaw is not so sure, though, wondering if someone else will take up the mantle and kill seven more men to complete the cycle. But when no more bodies with her distinctive markings show up over the next two years, Shaw allows himself to believe that maybe he has seen the end of the Jane the Ripper murders.

As it turns out, what he thought was the end was only the beginning.

His hunt will take him across the country, and even when he thinks he's finally discovered the truth, he quickly learns that not everything is as it seems.

That not every monster is created equal.

That the nature of good and evil is not as black and white as he has always believed.

That not everything that is broken can be put back together.

That not every fractured soul can be saved.

When blood, smoke and ashes rise, no one comes out the same on the other side.

Blood, Smoke and Ashes is a 150,00 word supernatural thriller

Well it’s the only interesting thing on this dumpy island. And besides, Grandpa really got their curiosity up about Hanson House.
