The Journal of Jeremy Todd
From Sinister Grin Press
$2.99 eBook / $15.99 Paperback

"I am not crazy.

I’ve had some issues. That I won’t deny. But am I crazy? I suppose that’s going to be up to you to figure out.

This is what happened to me around the time of my high school reunion. This is what I did, and why I did it. The story not only of that reunion and the events surrounding it, the ones you’ve probably read about in the papers, but about the things that happened during high school that make it necessary for things to play out the way they did. This is what happened to me, and to all those kids who thought I was simply a target in school. This is the true story of what they did to me, and what I did to them in return.

Once you've read my tale, I’m sure you’ll agree that I’m not crazy.

And who cares what that judge thought, anyway?"

The Journal of Jeremy Todd, found by Riverview Mental Hospital staff, has now been made public.

What Sleeps Beneath
From Bloodshot Books
$3.99 eBook / $15.99 Paperback

All Ryan wanted from life was to be cool enough for the girl of his dreams to notice him. If that meant he had to break into the town’s abandoned asylum and steal a trophy for the school bullies, so be it. What he didn’t expect was to find a corpse in the basement. 

An old, withered corpse with a wooden stake in its heart… 

A stake he accidentally knocked free… 

Prompted to return by a strange dream, he discovers that some legends are real, and finds himself face to face with an actual vampire. It’s a truly mind-blowing experience, and he can’t even share it with his best friend, Hunter. 

But when Hunter goes missing—the first in a trio of disappearances that rock the small town—Ryan discovers that the cause is even more monstrous than his new “friend.” Whatever happens next, Ryan knows his life will never be the same again—provided he survives…
