The Fume of Sighs

by Stefany Reyes

Fifty shades of payback…

Vampire? Faerie? Shapeshifter?

Kylie Outhwaite is something far worse. A woman scorned.

She’s suffered at the hands of the Pettite men for many generations. Ernest, the great-grandfather. Samuel, the grandfather. Arthur, the father. And now, more than a hundred years after her initial romance with Ernest, she’s involved with Harrison, the son. Involved and charged with settling a centuries old score. If only it were that simple it would’ve been first settled when Teddy Roosevelt was President. Kylie’s two impulses are at war. Which will win? Her lust for revenge? Or the surprising tenderness and love she feels for Harrison?



Reel Horror

by Ernie Garrett

A satirical zombie novel that pokes fun at the genre while also paying homage to it.

Rich Giesecke is a 20-something movie fan from Jersey who gets into an argument with a mysterious Usher, and finds himself trapped in a cheesy zombie film sequel, where the damage done to him is real. The only way to escape is to figure out the story (with help from his friends in the theater) and complete the film. This means not only surviving the action scenes, but also forcing the character arcs to happen, and stumbling his way through the plot-holes.

The content is PG-13 and doesn’t go overboard on gore or profanity, with a tone similar to stories like Back to the Future or Ghostbusters. Story is roughly 60,000 words and moves very quickly, with enough in-jokes, references, subtexts and set-ups for several readings. The product of a lot of work. Currently offered at a discount due to being new to the Kindleverse.
