The Devil, the Witch and the Whore (The Deal Book 1)

by Amy Cross

“Leave the forest alone. Whatever’s out there, just let it be. Don’t make it angry.”

When a horrific discovery is made at the edge of town, Sheriff James Kopperud realizes the answers he seeks might be waiting beyond in the vast forest. But everybody in the town of Deal knows that there’s something out there in the forest, something that should never be disturbed. A deal was made long ago, a deal that was supposed to keep the town safe. And if he insists on investigating the murder of a local girl, James is going to have to break that deal and head out into the wilderness.

Meanwhile, James has no idea that his estranged daughter Ramsey has returned to town. Ramsey is running from something, and she thinks she can find safety in the vast tunnel system that runs beneath the forest. Before long, however, Ramsey finds herself coming face to face with creatures that hide in the shadows. One of these creatures is known as the devil, and another is known as the witch. They’re both waiting for the whore to arrive, but for very different reasons. And soon Ramsey is offered a terrible deal, one that could save or destroy the entire town, and maybe even the world.

The Devil, the Witch and the Whore is the first book in a trilogy about a town and its demons, and about the consequences of making a deal with the devil. Contains scenes of horror and violence.

Garden of Fiends: Tales of Addiction Horror

by Mark Matthews

“Garden of Fiends is scary in the realest of ways. What fertile ground for horror. Every story comes from a dark, personal place.” -JOSH MALERMAN, New York Times best-selling author of BIRD BOX  The intoxication from a pint of vodka, the electric buzz from snorting cocaine, the warm embrace from shooting heroin–drinking and drugging provides the height of human experience. It’s the promise of heaven on earth, but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness. The craving to get high is a yearning as intense of any blood-thirsty monster.

The best way to tell the truths of addiction is through a story, and dark truths such as these need a piece of horror to do them justice.

The stories inside feature the insidious nature of addiction told with compassion yet searing honesty. Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental deaths, and some of the most incredible names in horror fiction have tackled this modern day epidemic.

Los relatos que componen el volumen se desarrollan en las habitaciones del hotel. Los huéspedes, por distintas razones, llegan a buscar tranquilidad. En realidad quedarán atrapados en un espacio en el que la frontera entre la vida y la muerte es borrosa, viscosa, putrefacta.

The Ghosts of Jasper Bayou

by Jeff DeGordick

Three hundred years ago, a crew of pirates laid siege to a coastal manor in Louisiana and stole a vast treasure. But as they made their escape, they were sunk by cannon fire, leaving them all to perish in a watery grave.

Now, the manor has long been a museum, attracting tourists to the area. Rumors of a sunken treasure have spread for decades, and most think it’s only that. But six friends know it’s real. One of them manages to get a security job while the museum is closed for renovations, and the six of them move in and plan their heist.

What they don’t know is that every hundred years after the pirate crew perished, their spirits return to the earth to exact bloody vengeance upon the inhabitants of the manor. And as luck would have it, the six of them move in on the eve of the anniversary.

Which is good, because the ghosts of the dead haven’t spilled blood in a century. And they are thirsty…

The Winterlake Haunting

by Jeff DeGordick

They won’t let you leave…

A year after a terrible car crash leaves his mother dead, six-year-old Noel is brought to an old cottage next to a picturesque lake for the winter. His father Walter has fallen on hard times and says they have to live at Winterlake until the money comes in from his contract work.

It was downright suspicious how cheap the asking price was, and sure, there are bullet holes in the walls and bed sheets stained red. But that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with the place, does it?

Except Noel can see and hear things his father can’t. The rattling attic door. The piano that seems to play itself. The butcher in the kitchen who’s all too familiar with a knife. Soon, the old inhabitants of the house don’t seem so dead and gone.

But as Noel tries to convince his father they have to leave, Walter spirals into drinking and depression over his financial situation. The ghosts are delighted at their new guests and their plans for them, and they don’t want them to leave. Which is lucky, because a huge snow storm approaches, threatening to bury Noel and Walter with them…

While the following stories share a “Haunting” theme, they might variously be filed as Horror, Paranormal, Fantasy, YA, etc., or anything else. Our idea is that the story itself is more important than whatever label somebody feels like giving it, and by bringing our work together in collections like this one, we hope readers may find a story they might like. Even if it is not in “their” genre.
