Beyond Doubt

by Claire Voet

Previously published under the title of The Other Daddy A World Away.

(Updated version 2017)
Two teenage girls have mysteriously disappeared from the small Scottish Orkney island of Eday. It is as if they have vanished from the face of the earth without trace. The island is in turmoil. Eight years later in Cambridgeshire, seven year old Callum Thompson is trying to cope with his parents’ recent separation. He begins to act strangely -constantly talking about his ‘other daddy’ and his new friend – Jeremy, whom nobody else knows about. At first his change in behaviour is blamed on the fact that his parents – Louise and Jack are now living apart, but as time goes on, Callum’s problems becomes much more disturbing and there is cause for concern. Is this just a case of a little boy with emotional problems or is this something more sinister? Jack wonders if his son is having some kind of encounter with the spirit world, but Louise is sceptical. Meanwhile after a successful trip to an old stately home in Hampshire, where paranormal activity is caught on camera, Dr Andrew McGregor returns to his parapsychology unit in Cambridge to find himself faced with a new challenge. It doesn’t take him long to realise that Callum Thompson’s case is far more than a paranormal investigation. Could it be that Callum is remembering another life? But what is the link between Callum and Eday, who is ‘the other daddy’ and who is Jeremy?

The Stubbs: a twisted romance

by D.S. Black

“A sweet, twisted romance.”

The Stubbs flashes back to a time when style and morality were flipped on their heads. Wild hair bands ruled the airwaves, Baby Boomers were only forty, Vietnam Vets were still in their thirties, and neon scrunch socks were all the rage.

Join nineteen-year-old Jackie Stubbs in a nostalgic, erotic ride back to the â??80s. She’s a guitar prodigy battling drug addiction, sexual awakening, and a violent ex-boyfriend who’s on the run and out for blood. And the only person who can save her is the new love of her life – if time doesn’t run out.



The House of Twelve

by Sean Davies

Twelve strangers wake up in a strange house with no memory of how they got there, and barely any recollection of who they are. They quickly learn that there is no way out, scarcely enough food and water to go around, and eerie music plays constantly in the background of every room. There is nothing to explain their mysterious incarceration except for a few scattered clues, a strange clock with twenty-four numbers and one single hour hand, and a leather-bound sheet of rules that makes their situation all the more fatal.

The House Rules:

Rule one: No escape. You can’t leave, plain and simple. Try to escape and you won’t like what you find on the other side.

Rule two: Make what you have last. Whatever food and water you currently find in the house is all that you will be provided with during your stay. No more will be given to you under any circumstance.

Rule three: When the music stops, someone must die. The music you can all hear in the background will cease between the hour of twenty-three and twenty-four; when this happens someone must die. Failure to comply with this rule will result in everyone’s death.

Rule four: Only one, and only when the music stops! One death, and only one death, must occur in the allotted time between the hour of twenty-three and twenty-four. Again, failure to comply with this rule will result in everyone’s death.

We hope you have a pleasant stay, and don’t forget: Redemption is the key to escape.



W. W. Jacobs: The Complete Supernatural Stories (20+ tales of horror and mystery: The Monkeyâ??s Paw, The Well, Samâ??s Ghost, The Toll-House, Jerry Bundler, The Brown Manâ??s Servant…)

by W. W. Jacobs

William Wymark Jacobs (1863-1943) was an English author of short stories and novels. Although much of his work was humorous, he is most famous for his macabre story “The Monkey’s Paw” (1902) and several other ghost stories, including “The Toll House” (1909) and “Jerry Bundler” (1901). “The Monkey’s Paw”, a tale of superstition and terror unfolding within a realistic, Dickensian setting of domestic warmth and coziness, is a felicitous example of Jacobs’s ability to combine everyday life and gentle humour with exotic adventure and dread.

What would you do if someone demanded you write the best story of your life, to be judged online? That your life depended on it.

Four well-known authors receive an email telling them they are responsible for a suicide. Their antagonist makes it clear she is out for revenge and they have no option but to comply. Their task is to post the best story they can imagine online and await judgement. Filled with guilt, anxiety, and even a few murderous tendencies, each writer weaves their tale and hopes for the best. It’ll be the competition of their lives. Who’s story will win? Will anyone survive?

If you enjoy tense, fast-paced horror, then you will love Kevin J. Kennedy and J.C. Michael’s You Only Get One Shot! Your shot is now. Read You Only Get One Shot today.

Praise for the book:

“Kennedy & Michael’s _You Only Get One Shot_ is quite a clever noir narrative, blending several gritty tales together into one unforgettable “escape by your wits” premise that will keep you turning the pages in terror till the twisty end is brilliantly unveiled. Gleefully disturbing and darkly terrifying to writers like me, this is such a clever and diffuse story, with the same puzzling torment of the SAW movies, but all the grit of a pulp crime novel. If you have this book in your hands or on the screen right now, you better buy it right away, because you only get one shot…”

Michael A. Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award winning author of Play Dead

“You Only Get One Shot gives all new meaning to a publishing deadline! Quite entertaining!”

Weston Kincade, author of the ‘A Life of Death’ series.

This was a fun story. Scary as heck for an author to read. Would I dare to say I didn’t enjoy it? Probably not. Good thing I did!

Willow Rose, author of the Emma Frost and Rebekka Franck series
