free Dark thrillers for kindleCandy and Cigarettes by C.S. DeWildt

In the face of revenge, innocence is meaningless.

Death is omnipresent to small-town loner Lloyd Bizbang. Today proves no exception. After being attacked yet again by a pair of sociopaths who have targeted him since childhood, Lloyd stumbles upon a sight he wishes he could unsee in the town junkyard. Now as he just tries to live through another day, the bodies are stacking up in the town of Horton, and Lloyd finds himself connected to each of them via the drug-and-drink-addled, unhinging police chief, yet another person who has an old score to settle with Lloyd. A game of revenge and survival is underway, but will there be a winner at the day’s end?
Free horror stories for KindleInk Stains, Volume 7

Decay. The word inspires images of mold-encrusted carpets in abandoned hotels, forgotten toys in the rain, and rusting roller coasters.

Those of us who call ourselves urban explorers are obsessed with it, perhaps because of its profound sense of sadness; if we are still and listen, we can hear the whispers of a brighter past.

This pervasive ghost doesn’t only haunt the physical world; it invades our bodies, minds, relationships, and societies. It is inevitable; we are helpless to stop it.

In these stories, one man is suddenly stalked by the same hooded figure that pursued his terminally ill father, while another stalks the world’s evil at great cost to himself. A woman who’s recently picked up smoking undergoes a monstrous transformation, another reels when she sees her boyfriend for what he truly is, and North Pole elves experience heartbreak for the first time. There are more; fifteen tales in all.
These are the things we lose; we die a little each day.
Some of us just more quickly than others.
Spine: A Collection of Twisted Tales by Steven Jenkins

Listen closely. A creak, almost too light to be heard…was it the shifting of an old house, or footsteps down the hallway? Breathe softly, and strain to hear through the silence. That breeze against your neck might be a draught, or an open window.

Slip into the pages of SPINE and you’ll be persuaded to leave the lights on and door firmly bolted. From Steven Jenkins, bestselling author of FOURTEEN DAYS and BURN THE DEAD, this horror collection of eight stories go beyond the realm of terror to an entirely different kind of creepiness. Beneath innocent appearances lurk twisted minds and scary monsters, from soft scratches behind the wall, to the paranoia of walking through a crowd and knowing that every single eye is locked on you. In this world, voices lure lost souls to the cliff’s edge and illicit drugs offer glimpses of things few should see. Scientists tamper with the afterlife, and the strange happenings at a nursing home are not what they first seem.

So don’t let that groan from the closet fool you. The monster is hiding right where you least expect it.

The Bottle Stopper by Angeline Trevena

Would you kill for your freedom?

Would you die for it?

Maeve was six when they took her mother away, and left her in the care of her Uncle Lou: a drunk, a misogynist, a fraud.

For eleven years she's lived with him in Falside's slums, deep in the silt of the Falwere River. She bottles his miracle medicine, stocks his apothecary shop, and endures his savage temper.

But as his violence escalates, and his lies come undone, she devises a plan to escape him forever. Even if it means people have to die.

Rebekka Franck Collection

Three novels from a multimillion bestselling author. This box set contains the first three books in Willow Rose's popular mystery series about the journalist Rebekka Franck and her friends and family.

- One, Two...He is coming for you:
Journalist Rebekka Franck returns to her hometown with her six-year-old daughter. She is trying to escape her ex-husband and starting a new life for her and her daughter when the small sleepy town experiences a murder. One of the country's wealthiest men is brutally murdered in his summer residence.

While Rebekka Franck and her punk photographer Sune try to cover the story for the local newspaper another murder happens on a high society rich man. Now Rebekka Franck realizes that the drowsy little kingdom of Denmark has gotten its first serial killer and soon a series of dark secrets - long buried but not forgotten - will see the light of day.

- Three, Four...Better lock your door:
It was supposed to be a night of fun, pleasure, lust, and pain for Susanne Larsen when she agreed to meet with a stranger from a chatroom. She met him for dinner that later led to casual, anonymous sex at the hotel room at the local inn.

But someone else showed up in the room, and suddenly it was no longer a game.

Zeeland Times star reporter Rebekka Franck and her photographer Sune are covering the case for the newspaper, and soon they find themselves deeply involved in a story of deceit and ugly secrets.

- Five, Six...Grab your Crucifix:
The Priest is a man with a mission from God. He is to help those possessed by evil to become free from their stronghold. He has expelled demons for years and had great success.

But there is one demon he never managed to cast out. And that demon has now come back to get him.

Rebekka Franck and Sune are on vacation in Northern Zeeland when they suddenly find themselves involved in what turns out to be their strangest case to this date.

Infected 1 - Tales to Read at Home: A Charity Anthology for the Save the Children Coronavirus Response

A collection of terrifying tales set in the very near future... or perhaps it's already here?
From The Introduction by Steve Dillon:
"We live in a time when isolation seems to be the only way to protect ourselves from another infectious plague. Loneliness has become the new norm, it seems, yet we still find ways to pull together in an ever-increasingly world of virtuality.
This anthology was born of a desire to face up the beast that is covid-19, aka coronavirus, aka the 2020 plague; to look in its slavering maw and say ‘fuck you because life goes on, and when you’re gone from this place, the world and its people will be stronger.’

It's an infected apocalypse and we're all (alone) in it together!
ALL proceeds go to the Save the Children Coronavirus Response.
The Leviathan by Sara Clancy

These survivors must confront the darkest secrets of their past…

Beaten, bloodied, and barely alive, the survivors of Black River’s cursed families have been cut off from their bloodlines for violating old traditions. But they continue their battle to end the evil of the Bell Witch and release the town from her reign of terror.

Pursued by the witch’s minions, the group takes shelter in the Leviathan, an abandoned opera house built a century ago. Its corridors exude supernatural power, and they soon discover that the haunted old building was designed for a very special purpose… to trap the Bell Witch within its walls.

But something else lurks within the ancient structure, something they never imagined in their darkest nightmares. And as the enemies close in, one of the survivors must risk their life in a devil’s bargain with this sinister presence.

Or none of them will survive the night…
Ashes to Ashes by Blake Croft and Ashley Raven

Blackburn Manor hides a terrifying and unnatural secret. Evil just got a new address…

After months on the run from an abusive relationship, Linda Green is ready to slow down and start her life over again. Exhausted from ever-present fear and stress, she yearns for the peace that a fresh start can bring. A fresh start she hopes to find at Blackburn Manor.
The lush green trees and serene nature surrounding the manor feel so calming to her frazzled soul that Linda is ready to take advantage of everything this peaceful oasis has to offer. No internet, no distractions. It’s perfect.

Until she sees the faces in the window.

Not one to believe much in the supernatural, Linda shrugs it off as just a feeling. But the longer she’s at the manor, the more the feeling of uneasiness grows. From the creepy old neighbor who watches her every move to the moving shadows and unexplained phone calls in the middle of the night, something is just not right.

She can trust no one. Not even herself.

As Linda begins to uncover the history of the place, she is sure that something strange is going on at Blackburn Manor. Something sinister that hides in the shadows, deep within walls cloaked with secrets.

Something that will stop at nothing to keep those secrets hidden.
