The tree appeared in the night. Wes’s perfect family doesn’t appreciate nature like he does, and they don’t care that their back yard has become a site of unearthly mystery.
But Wes cares. He needs to know what it is, and where it came from, because this is no ordinary tree. It’s growing far too quickly.
Then there’s the concerning matter of the pale entity standing by the tree, watching the house, in the dead of night. If Wes doesn’t figure this out soon, his perfect family won’t be so perfect any more.
P.T. Phronk presents a short novel of quiet horror that will make you rethink the things growing just outside your door.
“This short novel has a way of sucking you in and never letting you up for air.” ★★★★★
An old mansion. An apocalyptic storm. Whispering voices in the air. She was right to fear the worst-case scenario.
Amy Burnett has been buried in her work as a security expert. She likes it that way—her dark past can’t invade her thoughts as long as she stays holed up in her office. So why the heck has she ended up at a gothic mansion’s doorstep in the middle of the night?
It’s because Craig Foster summoned her there. Amy’s company built the sealed chamber in his basement, for any worrisome worst-case scenario, but now the safe room has presented a scenario of its own: Craig’s daughter is trapped inside.
It should be a quick fix. After all, what’s the worst thing that can happen when a stranger arrives at a remote mansion on a stormy night? An impossible mystery? A haunting? A visit from the lurking strangers in the woods? Surely not all three—that would require extraordinarily bad luck.
Unfortunately, Amy’s been short on luck lately.
Three Incidents at Foster Manor will keep you guessing until the end with a twist-filled, fast-paced, genre-blending mix of mystery, ghost story, thriller, and cosmic horror that will chill you to the core.
This is a standalone story, but also acts as a sequel to P.T. Phronk’s previous mystery, The Arborist.
It’s free in Kindle Unlimited, or a few bucks to buy. Wider availability coming in 2019!
Stan Lightfoot is the perfect paparazzo. He and his talented canine companion can track down anybody, anywhere. He’s on the hunt, and with the next flash of his camera, Stan could ruin a celebrity’s life and become a millionaire. His work has gone unappreciated by everything from beefy bodyguards to vicious Chihuahuas, but this time he’s interrupted by something new: a vampire.
When she sees what Stan is up to, the fanged woman demands his help in introducing her to her celebrity crush. It’s an offer he can’t refuse: Stan has to deliver the world’s biggest movie star on a non-silver platter, or find himself on the menu instead. He’s forced on a twisted road trip through nightmare America, and his new companion doesn’t mind driving through the night.
Stan only has a few days to figure out this perplexing woman with a monstrous hunger for blood and an all-too-human obsession with fame. Her power seems god-like, but he’s been in tough situations before. Maybe he can at least save his dog. The bigger issue is that to the perfect paparazzo, a star who doesn’t want to be found is as dangerous as any monster.
An unusual blend of horror, mystery, and humor for anyone who likes Twin Peaks, Fargo, or True Blood.
The more things change, the more they want to kill you.
Stan Lightfoot’s mother has been kidnapped by a werewolf. To save her, he returns to his home town—the same place that drove him away after clawing his heart into bite-sized pieces.
He discovers that when you’ve been away from home, it’s not the same when you return. That change isn’t for the better when the small-town charm is covering up deadly secrets. It also doesn’t help that a mysterious fog has blanketed the town and allowed the creatures of the night to walk during the day.
With the help of his new friend Annie and his old friend Paul, Stan will find his mother. He has to. But with his distant past’s mistakes and his recent past’s fresh horrors both standing in his way, Stan will have to give up a hell of a lot to save the woman who gave him everything.
A story about outsiders, insiders, and how things change, Of Moons and Monsters is small-town urban fantasy with a core of painful reality.
Of Moons and Monsters is the surprising sequel to Stars and Other Monsters. You don’t have to read that book first, but you’ll probably like this one more if you do.
An old man—a monster—with power and privilege beyond imagination, preys on the weak, the innocent, the oppressed. One insatiable desire compels him above all others, and he’ll stop at nothing to achieve it.
A timid girl who fears everything—having struggled since the day she was born against poverty, racism, colonialism, and misogyny—must decide to continue living in fear, or fight for what she deserves.
Each owes the state of their existence to factors compounded by the generations—factors that have left them at extreme opposite ends of the social divide. When they cross paths, only one will survive.
Semi-retired from the violent life of a paramilitary commander during The Troubles, Danno Graham has fled from Northern Ireland to Canada with his young family. His new role is to play host to those in the organisation who need to slip away for a wee while to avoid the heat. Now Danno enjoys the best of both worlds: the peaceful living of Scarborough, Ontario, and the satisfaction of still aiding the cause back in Belfast.
Then Farley Duff arrives on the Grahams’ doorstep.
Danno’s teenage daughter, Arlene, is immediately smitten with their brash and charming new houseguest. But Farley’s been hiding a dark side—a most disturbing truth that puts all of Danno’s peaceful new neighbourhood in great danger.
With the code of his people on one side and his new life in Canada on the other, Danno must decide how to set things right—with Farley, with his family, with his neighbours, and with himself. By the time Farley’s gone, no one in the Graham home will ever be the same.
From cal chayce, author of Victor of Circumstance and All the Fine Hungers, comes a riveting new tale of crime and punishment, love and betrayal, and the depths of a killer’s conscience.
Circumstance is a small town full of big secrets. Victor Days tries to avoid drama—he tries to avoid just about everything lately—but today, he’s about to become the talk of the town when his life is hit by a preposterous series of escalating disasters. And it all started with that damn bagel.
Victor needs to find the ambition to fight back against a corrupt cop who wants him dead, a town full of people hungry to be entertained by a spectacle, and an electronics tycoon who wants Victor’s death caught on camera.
A madcap comic adventure with emotional punch, combined with poignant social commentary, Victor of Circumstance shows how a change of perspective could make the difference between living the good life and going down in a hail of bullets.
“Brimming with well-observed critiques of modern life, Victor of Circumstance has some laugh-out-loud moments and satire reminiscent of John Kennedy Toole.”
—Mark A. Rayner, author of The Fridgularity
When Melody stumbles upon an old manuscript her boyfriend wrote, she can’t help but notice the similarities with her own life. But Sunny never finished the story, so she never finds out what happens to the badass character who may or may not be based on herself.
Sunny agrees to finish the fictional tale of a troubled girl in a world gone mad. But before Melody can read the rest, she comes into trouble of her own: she’s becoming unchained from reality, getting occasional glimpses of another world. To fix it, she’ll need the help of a quirky scientist who’s halfway across the country, and along the way to see him, she’ll combat gangsters, get to know her friends better, and struggle to understand the make-up of reality itself.
Unchained Melody is the authorized sequel (of sorts) to cal chayce’s All The Fine Hungers, where Melody, Sunny, and Chuck first fought elite cannibals. Now they’re struggling against more existential threats, in an entirely different author’s world.
An often meta tale, it would be wise to strap yourself in securely before taking the journey, and hold your god-helmet on tight!
It’s been described as erotica by a virgin. But Leonard Delaney describes Sex Boat like this:
When Winston left for a tropical vacation on a boat, he did not expect to be alone. Yet here he is, on a boat, holding the diamond ring he intended to propose to Brooke with, while she’s been held back by her job. Lame. But things start to perk up when a party girl with a dark side and a blue-eyed bombshell with an ocean obsession both express sexual feelings about him. Winston has some choices to make about how to spend his vacation. Meanwhile, a mysterious force from the depths of the ocean has other plans for the boat.
Erotic, exhilarating, sexual, exciting, and mysterious, Sex Boat is a caper that will wiggle its way inside of you and make you reluctant to remove it. Just wait until you see the alarming finale.
Lenny does Harry Potter (though he’d never admit that he’s inspired by anything).
Peter Harrison is not a wizard. He’s just a regular guy, too broke and lazy to escape living in his uncle’s basement. It’s not exactly paradise. So when a case of mistaken identity leads to a white van coming to take him to wizarding school, he’s happy to be whisked away.
He’s also pleased to discover that the teachers are all beautiful women, but when they take a sexual interest in Peter for no reason, his secret is dangerously close to being discovered. Plus, these wizards seem to have a dark secret, and getting kicked out of school will be the least of Peter’s worries if they find out he’s not a wizard.
Motherfucking Wizards is an erotic mashup of explicit sex stuff and badass sorcerers. What superauthor Leonard Delaney lacks in experience, he makes up for in the magic of imagination. This novella is for awesome adults only.
