New technology, old grievances, ageless crimes.

When a local girl goes missing, Chris’s world as a news editor runs the gamut when the case collides with a mysterious website in her old haunt, the arts beat.


Chris should be thrilled to get an exclusive on the developing story, a chilling website that invites readers into an abandoned house one image at a time. But a thick slice of office politicking stifles her quest for understanding at every turn. She can’t shake the feeling of that there’s something more than “art” behind it, and feels futility dogging her every move.


Chris watches, helplessly, as the scene is revealed one excruciating image at a time online, holding the town in thrall, but will she be able to solve the location of the mystery house and its horrific significance before her suspicions are proven true?

“Dark and gritty, told with complex descriptions and word-perfect dialog.”

Genre: Crime Thriller
Length: 59 pages
Free post-apocalyptic horrorJam Don't Shake

They seem so innocent: jars of jellies and jams. But the inhabitants of the town of Goodman know better.

An additive in Auntie Goodtimes Jams and Jellies turns good people into rioting murderers when their supply is cut off, the factory burned to the ground, and the National Guard closing in.

Doug is trying to survive in this post-Goodtimes world, sating his addiction with a carefully dosed tablespoon a day of jelly. And, when supplies get low, Doug, like others, finds that cravings can be quelled with the blood of fellow addicts.

Is it really murder when it’s a matter of survival?

Some face Hell on a literal level as others discover it is one of their own making. None were prepared for the reality of their consequences.
