"I wasn’t afraid of death. If I died, it would be over. My worst fear wasn’t of dying, it was of living. Living, while everyone around me had their flesh savagely torn from their bodies to be shoved into the festering and ever-hungry mouths of zombies. It terrified me, right down to my very core, to be alive while the rest of the world was dead."

During the Second Great Depression, twenty-four year old Orissa Penwell is forced to drop out of college when she is no longer able to pay for classes. Unable to find a job, she moves in with her aunt in Indianapolis. Down on her luck, Orissa doesn’t think she can go any lower.

She couldn’t be more wrong. A virus breaks out across the country, leaving the infected crazed, aggressive and very hungry.

#FrightFall Read-a-Thon 2016

Wow it is that time again for the #FrightFall Read-a-Thon for this year.  Which is hosted by Seasons of Reading

It will take place from Oct. 3-9 which gives us a full week to get as much reading done. I think this year I am going to do some things different on this read-a-thon. I always try to push myself to read as much as I can, and that they are only review books, because let's face it as a reader/blogger I have found myself completely booked with reviews and it seems like I never have enough time to read them all.
So I think this year I am going to go through my list of books and pick out the ones that have just been sitting on my kindle to read. Not sure what I will find just yet but I will update this post with what I find. I think that is going to take me some time to actually find some good ones.

Now the rules to this read-a-thon is you have to read at least 1 scary book. It can be thriller, mystery, gothic just plain anything but it has to be scary. So which we all know t…

Believe it or not, a multi-planetary conglomerate controls humanity. Investutech is its name, and the company's applied research and product development methods would petrify even the maddest of madmen.

To Investutech, no scientific atrocity is too horrific in the pursuit of ultimate profit. In fact, sin is an inapplicable concept.

Only the Flux Facers, a group of face-shifting patriots, are dedicated to overthrowing biggest business. Utilizing every means at their disposal, including body hijacking, they embark on an Investutech-overthrowing mission that reaches from Earth all the way to the afterlife.

This special Necro Publications release includes five bonus Investutech stories, comprising decades of sacrilegious scientific innovation.

Book Spotlight: What's In Your Barn by Lindon King

Image
Title: What’s In Your Barn?
Author: Lindon King
Publisher: Createspace
Pages: 44
Genre: Essay

What’s in your barn… reminds us of who we are as created beings and inspires a purpose filled way of life. We are not deserving of the gift of life or of the benefits it brings but instead we should count ourselves privileged and blessed for God’s unmerited favour. The decisions we make create our path and influence a way of life for others. We should therefore be reminded that the path of life is for every one and comes with no detours; this path is inevitable and takes us all from "the cradle to the grave.
You can pick up your copy at Amazon.


Entrenched in our society is an arguable understanding that socioeconomic attributes determine our intrinsic value or the lack thereof. It should therefore be understood that we are also validated by our abilities and resilience in addressing and dealing with the unexpected intermissions and interruptions that come with this incomparable package called…

Now Aladdin and Cassie's only chance for survival may be to join the mysterious Sorcerer, an immortal warlord, who frightens even the Anunnaki. But there is more to the ring on his finger, the Sorcerer, and his amnes…
