All 17 year old Noella Snow ever wanted was a normal life.

But normal died with her mother, minutes after she was born. Then again when her father was murdered before her eyes on her seventh birthday. Now she spends her days in quiet misery, an outcast at school, harboring a secret crush on her best friend, Sam.

Noella’s only happiness lies in her dreams, in a world where her father still lives and Dante, a mysterious stranger with a deadly touch, guards over her.

Now those dreams have turned to nightmares as Noella begins hearing voices, witnessing murders she can’t possibly know of, and seeing the monsters from her sleep merging into her waking life.

Noella doesn’t want to return to King’s Point, the psychiatric hospital where she was forced to go after an “episode” two years earlier.

She tells herself she’s better.

But then one night Noella sees the impossible… Dante, watching her from afar, as he has for centuries – nearly as long as he’s loved her.

Is Noella losing her mind? Or is she linked to a hidden world, destined to be normal ForNevermore?

Monstrous

Monstrous by Platt & WrightThey say that behind every comedian lurks a tortured soul…

Yet, comedian Henry Black finally has everything he’s always dreamed of: a thriving career, and a wife and daughter who he loves more than life itself. After years of struggle, he finally has it made.

Until three men force their way into his home, killing Henry and destroying the safe, comfortable world he has built for his family.

But that is only the beginning of his hellish torment. He wakes in purgatory, where he’s met by two men, both offering a choice. Randall offers a chance at heaven. Boothe, however, offers something far more tempting—a chance to go back to his life.

A chance to see if his family is okay.

For Henry, there is no choice. He accepts Boothe’s deal. But with every deal comes a price: his body is twisted to match his sins, and Henry is no longer the man his wife remembered—Henry is no longer a man at all.

He is monstrous.

Thrust into darkness and madness—unable to be with the people he loves—Henry embraces his new form, and his new supernatural abilities, and does the only thing he can: avenge his murder. But as Henry grows closer to the truth of what happened on that terrible night, he grows further from his humanity.

How far will he go to seek revenge?

And is he willing to sacrifice his soul?

From the authors who brought you Z 2134, Yesterday’s Gone, and ForNevermore, comes another dark tale sure to keep you waiting for the next episode.

Dark Crossings 2

Dark Crossings: Volume 2 by Platt & WrightFrom the writers of “Yesterday’s Gone” and “WhiteSpace”, comes the second installment of short stories with killer endings! “Dark Crossings Volume 2” contains six short stories previously published as single short stories, now collected here for the first time in one volume.

Included are six short stories (at nearly 64,000 words) and Author Notes, including:

ARE WE THERE YET–  Jay Stephens is a philanderer on his way to meet a lover. When he runs into some roadwork, he realizes he’s gonna be late. Fortunately, he has his trusty voice-activated GPS system, April. April is reliable, has a sexy British accent, and has always helped him get to where he’s going . . . until now. Jay is about to take an unexpected detour from reality and into the dark realms of “Dark Crossings.”

IF YOU DON’T FINISH READING THIS, EVERYONE YOU KNOW WILL DIE –  Anthony has OCD. He’s convinced that if he doesn’t give into his compulsions, bad things will happen to those around him. His doctor proposes that Anthony avoid giving into his compulsions in order to prove that Anthony’s fears are without substance. But what if they’re not? Anthony is about to take an unexpected detour from reality and into the dark realms of “Dark Crossings.”

WHAT WOULD BORICIO DO? – Boricio Wolfe abides by only two rules: 1) Always use the best ingredients when cooking, and 2) Don’t shit where you eat. The only way a serial killer can keep a (somewhat) normal life is to stick to the rules — especially the second one. Boricio has finally found a job that doesn’t make him homicidal, and is working his way to working in the restaurant of his dreams. All he has to do is keep out of trouble and impress Mr. Jules, a man who owns some of the best restaurants in the state. And Boricio is on the fast track to being a top chef… if he just sticks to the rules. But how long can Boricio stick to those rules when a young kid with an abusive father comes into his restaurant, just begging to be killed? Because nothing sets Boricio off quite like abusive fathers. Should he turn a blind eye? Should he just leave well enough alone? Or should he give the kid an early Christmas gift and kill his prick of a father? What Would Boricio Do?

MONSTERS – 10-year old Sheldon Harrison is afraid of monsters. Every day he has to walk along a long stretch of woods where a Monster is rumored to live. But that Monster isn’t as scary as the bullies which torment him. And the only way to avoid the bullies? To take a shortcut . . . through the woods.

HIDE AND SEEK – It’s just an ordinary day at the park — kids playing with one another, parents watching after their kids, sitters watching their charges, and a host of strangers lurking about. All while young mother, Robin, sneaks off to send sext messages to her lover while she’s supposed to be playing hide and seek with her four year old daughter. But in Dark Crossings, games aren’t for children. And there are no winners.
Warning: Hide and Seek contains sexually graphic language and is intended for adults only.

THE GOOD DEEDS SOCIETY – Something weird is happening in the gated community of Evergreen Walk. People are having dreams in which a mysterious woman appears to them, asking them to do good deeds for one another. Soon, a group calling itself The Good Deeds Society forms, eager to spread word of the Lady and her good deeds. But in Dark Crossings, not every good deed can be taken at face value. And no good deed goes unpunished…
