For fans of Stephen King, Michael Koryta, and Lawrence Block. In this haunting new horror thriller featuring a down-and-out detective, solving the case of a lifetime and tracking down a dangerous killer is only half of the story.

But when he wakes up after a blackout binge with a bullet in his arm and no memory of how it got there, he’s thrown headfirst into a supernatural murder mystery. Now, four teens are dead at the hands of an elusive madman, and Lunsmann may be the only hope for justice. Purchase at


 "My Mother's Pain"
by Fae Bidgoli

My Mothers Pain

My Mother’s Pain explores the progressive nature of cultural abuse and the tragic decisions women bound to such conventions must make in the name of love, often denying and even sacrificing their true selves. This is also a story of healing, rebirth and reunion. Twenty-five years ago, Jennifer Thompson made a decision that would change her life and hopefully protect her unborn child.

A phone call from her daughter shatters the stitched-together memories of lost love and her mother’s pain that make up Jennifer’s fragile reality. Hours later, Jennifer sits in her car in front of a small house in Erie, PA. She has driven from San Francisco, but she doesn’t know where she is or why. Purchase at
