whatever it is you celebrate, do it with a book!

WHITE PICKET PRISONS

xmassale-wppDetective Mark Baker is an honest cop and an all-around good guy. After a chaotic night, Mark starts to reexamine his role in the system he no longer believes in.

That’s when an ominous letter arrives from his estranged sister. She sounds distraught, suicidal. Her words send him on a mission to a small Midwestern town, uncertain if he’ll find her dead or alive.

Valley Mill is a quiet little utopia. Everyone gets along. There’s zero crime. On the outside, it’s exactly what Mark thinks society should be. But what Mark discovers behind the pristine fences and closed doors is far worse than anything he could have imagined.

And he learns very quickly to be careful what you wish for…

GRAVE WAX

George Morey would do anything to save his wife from certain death and has tried every treatment known, from chemical to homeopathic to prayer—all to no avail.

So when the local witch requests unique ingredients from the town’s gravedigger, George complies without question—willing to sacrifice his own past to secure a future with the woman he loves… more than life itself.

WAITING OUT WINTER

Nick and the boys return from the summer’s last hunting trip to find the streets empty, the beachfront and park abandoned, and the windows of their own homes boarded shut.

The hunters have become the hunted, in an apocalyptic plague that pits man against beast—very tiny beasts. And Nick is determined to keep his strength, courage and family alive during what could very well be the last winter of their lives.

I’ll have to find him a special treat while I’m gone… Meanwhile, enjoy the special treat he’s given all of you: my entire ebook library reduced to 99¢ until I return…
