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

CUSTOMER REVIEWS FROM B&N

“….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.

Emerge: The Awakening: (Immortals of Indriell Book 1) by Melissa A. Craven

2015 International Book Awards Finalist!!
Allie Carmichael has always believed life is simple.
You’re born. You live. You die.
She has no cause to believe that equation works differently for her, but there has to be a reason the world treats her like a pariah.
When an unexpected move to Kelleys Island brings Aidan McBrien crashing into her life, Allie is thrown by his reaction. He doesn’t shrink from her touch. He doesn’t stutter or make a quick exit. He smiles and welcomes her into his circle of friends, who aren’t exactly comfortable with Allie, but they seem to get her in a way most people don’t.
Finally, Allie has a real shot at normal and rides that high right up to her sixteenth birthday when she wakes in agony—an experience Aidan insists they have all faced. She struggles in ignorance, uncertain of what is real and what isn’t. When she emerges, Allie is different. She has always been different, but even among her extraordinary friends, she and Aidan are special.
As Allie struggles to maintain her tenuous grasp on the power that threatens to overwhelm her, she worries she will lose herself in this strange new world. A dangerous world where she will have to fight tooth and nail to defend the power and freedom that is her birthright.
…only Allie hates to fight.

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 zombie-guide.com

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

Dark Recollections is the first book in the AUD series. It covers Adrian’s journal entries from September 21st 2010, to December 1st, 2010. Intermingled with his personal diary entries, book one also contains the short stories Phil’s Story, McGreevy’s Report, and Soccer Mom.
