In this episode… I leave the origins of turkey day alone and simply express thanks instead. I laugh at the cartoons and invite you along. And then we dive into the evil, stupid, asinine event known as Black Friday. And I wrap it up with a touch of wisdom to bring my disgust and rage down.

SURVIVOR’S GUILT

Presumed dead in the tragedy of 9-11, Ryan Kolstad saw his missed job interview that morning as something other than a failure—he saw opportunity. Believing his family would be better off, he walked away.

Under the guise of a new identity, he’s spent a decade punishing those he deems unworthy of the loving families they take for granted. But Ryan suddenly finds himself questioning the lies and rules he’s come to live by… when he finds himself on the other side of judgement.


This novella was originally published as part of the Waking The Dead exclusive, limited edition collection of four novellas (from Thunderstorm — also included were Buried Memories, Crossroads and Grave Wax). This is not my normal subtle thriller style, nor is it in your face horror, this is brutal reality and often consider “crime thriller”.

If you didn’t grab Waking the Dead, are a collector of all editions, or simply don’t have this one, now’s your chance to grab it. Go ahead, treat yourself to one last sweet before you make that dentist appointment to undo the damage of October.

Available at Amazon

(apologies to those in other countries — kindle countdown is only for US stores, please go there to grab part of this deal!)
