Middle age can be murder …

At least that’s how it seems to former crime journalist, Wilhelmina Chance, whose near-fatal accident has given her a strange side effect … she sees ghosts.

After a messy divorce sends her fleeing back to her hometown of Mystic Notch, nestled in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Willa finds herself haunted by the tenacious ghost of the town librarian who insists Willa solve her murder.

Luckily, she has lots of help, including a quirky cast of small-town characters, the cat she’s inherited from her grandmother, and her best friend, Pepper, who claims her herbal teas can work magic.

But just when Willa thinks she’s discovered who the killer is, she finds out that things are not what they seem in Mystic Notch, and the case takes a strange turn that has Willa adding even some of her long-time friends to her suspect list.

Can Willa find the real killer in time to keep the magical balance in Mystic Notch on the side of good, or will evil prevail?

Dark Recollections (Adrian’s Undead Diary Book 1) by Chris Philbrook

For the first time, the internet phenomenon is now in print!

Beheading a zombie isn’t easy in a world where you’re more afraid of the living than the dead.

Adrian Ring’s simple life is thrown into chaos when the world is ripped apart by a plague of undead and legions of desperate survivors. Retreating to Auburn Lake Preparatory Academy, Adrian attempts to rescue friends and family on the way while dancing around his impending insanity over who and what he left behind, and evading maniac survivors. He saves his cat Otis, but shoots his mom. Pretty successful, all things considered.

Dark Recollections is the first part of Adrian’s own story of how he survived after “That Day.” Told through his eyes as he talks to his laptop, affectionately named ‘Mr. Journal,” and through short stories that entwine with his tales that bring forth dark visions of a world being eaten alive by an unimaginable evil. Adrian’s Undead Diary is an eight part epic about a solitary, guilt stricken man that didn’t think he deserved to live, but realizes very soon that he survived, and suffered for a reason.

It’s a great read for anyone. The stories are well written, characters build carefully and every detail is covered. People, this is what a great book looks like! Stop reading this review and start reading the book! -Frank D of

I don’t even think one needs to be a fan of zombie fiction to end up a fan of AUD; because Chris’s talent can’t be pigeonholed into one limited, literary genre. His true talent lies in weaving an enduring, sweeping story that does exactly what it’s supposed to do… pulls you in, engrosses you, evokes emotion, and leaves you satisfied (if not a little bit sad) when it’s over. In the case of AUD, for me, the zombies are just a bonus! -Wendi Haegle

The AUD Saga:
Book One: Dark Recollections
Book Two: Alone No More
Book Three: Midnight
Book Four: The Failed Coward
Book Five: Wrath
Book Six: In the Arms of Family
Book Seven: The Trinity
Book Eight: Cassie

The Little Pink Pill: Perception can be a tricky thing by K. L. Smith


“….Brilliant book. Couldn’t put it down. Never saw the twist coming at all and usually I can spot them a mile away. I noticed at the end that the author has first hand knowledge of brain trauma so really knows what she’s writing about. Highly recommend this book!…”

“…Wow what an unusual book! A real page turner with a twist that blew me away!..”

A dark psychological tale from the author of ‘Flight of the Cuckoo’.

Flynn was on a bus in London that was attacked by a suicide bomber. He lost his fingers in the explosion and gained left frontal lobe damage to his brain, leading to symptoms of aggression, violent mood swings, blackouts, suicidal thoughts, and psychopathic tendencies.
His doctor determines that the left frontal lobe syndrome has left Flynn with symptoms similar to schizophrenia, which develop into a secondary personality during times of stress.
Flynn and his wife refer to this secondary personality as ‘the other one’.

However, after he is given a little pink pill by his doctor, an antipsychotic pill normally reserved for schizophrenics, his moods level out to the point that he can function almost normally again, apart from the fact that the pink pill leaves him feeling emotionally numb.

He is relatively content with his new life, after all, thanks to the pink pill, he can’t feel enough to care anyway.
Until he decides to stop taking the pink pill in an effort to feel things again.
He wonders if he can fool everyone around him into thinking that he is still taking the little pink pill, whilst in reality starting to live a double life.

After a chance meeting with another patient, he befriends Sid, who also suffers with schizophrenia. The two embark on a sometimes humorous journey of twists and turns in an effort just to stay in what they believe to be a state of equilibrium. The only problem is, neither of them know if what they perceive is real or not.
Especially when experiments with LSD get thrown into the mix.

Flynn also has a worrying eye on the news, as more and more people seem to be going missing, and he can’t be certain if he, Sid or any of their ‘other’ selves may have played a hand in it.

Please note this novel contains strong language.

The Uncanny Valley: Tales from a Lost Town (The Uncanny Chronicles Book 1) by Gregory Miller and John York

The Uncanny Valley…

“…is a macabre serenade to a small town that may or may not exist, peopled with alive and dead denizens who wander about the hills and houses with creepy fluidity. Told by individual inhabitants, the stories recount tales of disappearing dead deer, enchanted gardens, invisible killer dogs, and rattlesnakes that fall from the sky; each contribution adds to a composite portrait that skitters between eerie, ghoulish, and poignant. Miller is a master storyteller, clearly delighting in his mischievous creations.”
