The snow is back, so I’m feeling kind of dark today. You’d think the thought of a winter that won’t end would be terrifying enough, but maybe the cold weather’s a good enough excuse to curl up with a hot thriller.
Dark Passage (A Terrifying Horror Thriller) by Griffin Hayes. Amazon for $2.99. An illicit drug trial promises to cure the crippling nightmares that have kept Tyson Barrett awake for months, nightmares rooted in the terrible abuse he suffered as a child. Exhausted and near collapse, he jumps at the chance to get his life back.
But Tyson soon discovers a side effect no one could have imagined. Doors are opening between Tyson’s nightmares and the real world–and more than memories are coming through.
Now he must face a terror that has stalked him since childhood or risk losing everything he holds dear.
The mind is full of halls. And some of the darkest passages lead to rooms better left closed.
Bonus: The complete first episode of Primal Shift, a post-apocalyptic thriller.

Zombie Nights by Tom Lichtenberg. FREE from Smashwords.com
Being a zombie, not so easy. That could have been Dave Connor’s six word memoir. “At first he couldn’t remember how he’d ended up in that shallow grave; he just knew it was hell to claw his way out, and that the taste of its dirt would remain in his mouth for the rest of his time on this earth” … Expect the unexpected in this existential resurrection thriller.
Just the title of The Atlantis Gene is evocative. And then you get to the premise, which may or may get you reading it before the end of this sentence. Well, probably after, just because you have to finish reading it to get to…Never mind.
