“I’ve been married so many times, they should revoke my license,” says NY model, and reluctant pilot Lalla Bains.

Running her dad’s Crop-Dusting business in Modesto, California she’s hoping to dodge the inevitable fortieth birthday party. But when her trophy red ’58 Cadillac is found tail-fins up in a nearby lake, the police ask why a widowed piano teacher, who couldn’t possibly see beyond the hood ornament, was found strapped in the driver’s seat.

Reeling from an interrogation with local homicide, Lalla is determined to extricate herself as a suspect in this strange murder case. Unfortunately, drug running pilots, a cross-dressing convict, a crazy Chihuahua, and the dead woman’s hunky nephew throw enough road blocks to keep Lalla neck deep in an investigation that links her family to a twenty-year old murder only she can solve.

Here’s the set-up:

If you’re a fan of supernatural fiction then you will be captivated by this true story about a spiritually sensitive girl and the path that led to her possession. Part one of a two-part series, Saving Mary is the story of a modern-day Mary Magdalene—the woman from whom Jesus cast out seven demons.

Deidre Daily is drawn to anything seemingly spiritual, desperately seeking a spiritual existence. But inside this vibrant girl hides a terrified child who sincerely believes she has married the devil. Through a series of spiritual encounters her fear turns into reality, and she ends up possessed.

Deidre’s fascinating memoir relays her story from childhood to adolescence: invisible eyes leering at her from the corner of her bedroom, horrible nightmares tormenting her, and her desperate attempt to find God—only to end up possessed. It is a candid account of possession from a first-person perspective. This dark memoir brings to light an intricate world of deceitful spirits hell-bent on manipulating and damaging an innocent girl’s life, not only through her dreams, but also through seemingly every-day encounters.

Travel with Deidre into the mysterious world of spirits, ghosts and demons. Awaken yourself to a world that isn’t supposed to exist; a world that’s as intriguing as it is sinister. And then emerge as a new person—invigorated, aware and intent on living in the light. Saving Mary; Not just another story about a girl and her exorcist.

Readers join their journey as they create new lives for themselves in the midst of grief, loss, significant change, and the pressures of societal expectation. The result is an artful narrative of discovery set within the sparse beauty of the desert landscape.

One-Night Stan’s

by Greg Sisco

4.8 stars – 16 Reviews
Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

WELCOME TO SCUD CITY — THE WORST TOWN IN AMERICA

Scud is the kind of cesspool that’s heaven if you want good drugs, dirty sex, and a nightly brush with death, and hell if you want anything else. And of all the decaying brothels and meth-spas in the city of dead dreams, One-Night Stan’s is the last place any distinguished human would set foot, the kind of sleazy strip club where the floors are linoleum, the air is cigarette smoke, and the night isn’t over till somebody’s a corpse.

Over the course of one excruciatingly long night, two college students stumble across an orange duffel bag stuffed with hundred-dollar bills and they find themselves the target of a coke-fueled night club owner, a vicious nymphomaniac stripper who gets her jollies slicing extremities off others with a butterfly knife, and a Russian bouncer who once ripped a man in half “the long way.” As their wild night goes progressively off the rails, their paths cross with an unprofessional and strangely hostile FBI agent who has arrived in town on the trail of a serial killer–a serial killer who has been carving up dancers on a cross country tour of seedy strip joints, but who may have just stumbled into the wrong club.

MEET THE LOCALS

Jeremy: The kind of futureless twenty-something who spends three nights a week at nudie bar hating the present and crossing his fingers he’ll end up in a new city one day, he doesn’t exactly have the judgment necessary to steal $250,000 in blood money.

One-Night Stan: Stan just wants to be Frank Sinatra, but he never will be. He’s a classless night club owner with anger issues and one hell of a coke problem who will never reach the level of coolness to which he aspires.

Ginger: This whackjob probably stepped out of a propaganda horror film warning teens about sex. An employee of Stan’s, she’s a seductress who can only get her rocks off inflicting pain on men, and she hasn’t been satisfied in weeks.

Caleb: The best and worst friend a college kid could ask for. When a group of sex-crazed gymnasts want you to come with them to sacrifice a dog to Satan, he’s the friend who threatens to physically harm you if you say no.

Leonard: A city like Scud demands an owner like Leonard, a handsome scumbag with his hand in the pockets of every politician, gangster, and law enforcement official in a ten mile radius.

Russian Bob: It takes an expat from Russia to work as a bouncer at One-Night Stan’s. One of the local legends about Russian Bob is he once killed a cop with a stapler for stepping on his foot.

And More — Between a quietly depressed stalker-nerd, a woman whose not above screwing and killing strangers for quick buck, and a jaded serial killer with an unlikely day job, there’s no shortage of characters to be met in Scud City.

Watch Me Disappear

Here’s the set-up:

Lizzie knows it isn’t right to eavesdrop, but is it really eavesdropping if her neighbor Maura makes all of her phone calls on her parents’ pool deck in easy earshot of Lizzie’s backyard? And of course it’s wrong to go snooping around on someone else’s computer, but is it Lizzie’s fault that Maura keeps her computer turned on (and logged in to Facebook) all the time?

Lizzie’s father has moved the family around every few years to advance his career, so she has never had a chance to develop the kind of “BFF” relationships she thinks most kids have. She’s bracing herself for another lonely year at her third high school when Maura gets sick of watching her little brother when she could be partying. Thanks to Maura’s plotting, Lizzie becomes everyone’s new favorite babysitter, and seeing her opportunity, Lizzie breaks her strict parents’ rules and uses Maura’s computer to create a secret Email address and Facebook account. She is quickly friended by Missy, a fellow transfer student as eager for a friend as she is. Things are looking up for Lizzie until Maura’s ex-boyfriend Paul sets his eye on Missy. Caught between her new best friend and the neighbor whose friendship promises instant popularity, Lizzie doesn’t know what to do–because she’s fallen for Paul, too.

WATCH ME DISAPPEAR was a 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarterfinalist.

Here’s the set-up:
This is a quick, simple story, (wordcount 1788), about the concept of time and how we perceive it. Gork wanders through the Sands of Time, in his dream, where he searches out the Creatures of Time: Itbee, Ustubee, and Yetubee, in the hope that they can answer his questions, questions we all ask ourselves: Where did I come from? Where am I going? Why do I exist?
“…The Dream Begins” is the prelude to the forthcoming book “…Time Dreams”. It’s like the cartoon before the movie starts, and is meant to stimulate thoughts about life and existence.

Before I start, I must point out that I’m a spellweaver, not a storyteller. I’ve been nagged into doing this, and I’m still not completely convinced it’s a good idea. I’m not about to attempt to pen any long epic tome detailing all my adventures. I’ll leave that to someone better suited to the task. What I am going to tell you is how I became the cursed werewolf I am, how I met Angela of Troy, and how I got tangled up in the biggest adventure of them all… (Benjamin McConnell, Silver Shroud Werewolf)
