The time is tomorrow. A meteor storm has allowed monsters of every order to run free across the planet. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, demons and other atrocities are the new bad guys on the block. To contend with this prevalent threat, various law enforcement agencies have created special divisions to deal with the monster epidemic. LAPD has created Monster Vice, and its senior cop is Dick Pitts -- a specialist in monster extermination. On a daily basis, Pitts stakes vampires, executes werewolves, and exorcises demons. When his partner is killed, he is assigned a new partner named Curadel -- who is in fact Dracula -- a greatly misunderstood Dracula through the ages and a Dracula who has become a cop to help humanity deal with the vampire plague. Now, Pitts and Dracula must team up and fight a Grand Master - the most powerful vampire in the world - who is hell bent on transforming every child in Los Angeles into a bloodsucking killing machine. Pitts and Dracula create a special platoon of 'fang warriors' -- their mission: to find the Grand Master and shut down his evil plans before the streets of LA are flooded in a sea of blood.

Do you believe in fairies?

For thousands of years they have lived with us in our fables and in our forests. They have crept from beneath beds to frighten our children and tormented our travelers unmercifully on the road at dusk. They have infested our gardens and spoiled the milk in our barns and smashed the crockery in our kitchens. They have bewitched and bedeviled young lovers and drugged us and caused our sleep to be filled with fantastic dreams.

In the summer of 1921, photographer John Warrick is invited to Browning Grange to witness an unusual phenomenon. Spurred by the imagination of two charming children and the seductive allure of the children’s aunt, Warrick embarks on a search for the fairies at Browning Grange in hopes that capturing their image on film will prove once and for all that fairies are real.

Warrick soon finds himself embroiled in an electrifying mystery. For something lives in the shadows of the hollow deep in the forest at Browning Grange, something with plans of its own.

The Fairies at Browning Grange, a 20,000 word novella, is a mystery charged with scenes of electrifying sensuality and is therefore recommended for mature readers.

Baby Dolls Don’t Die. . . Sometimes is an anthology of two short stories and four poems. In the first story, “Baby Dolls Don’t Die. . . Sometimes”, fifteen year old Adam Eubanks is forced to deal with the birth of his newborn sibling and the exposure of his mother’s mental fragility, which in turn exposes the mind of a killer cloaked in the body of a teenaged boy.

“Eve’s Story” is a first-person narrative of the Fall of Man as told by Eve, the wife of Adam. In her rendition, Eve attempts to explain why the Fall happened and in doing so, hopes to gain empathy for the role that she played in it while shedding light on God’s infinite love for His creation.

And finally, slotted between the two short stories are poems entitled “Behold, the Lamb,” “Peace,” “I’m Just Sayin’,” and “What is Happiness?”

"Oh, how I wished I could’ve told her what had happened. How I wished I could’ve let go and allowed the tears to spill. But I knew that if I had cried, Mama would’ve asked me what the matter was. And if I had told her the truth, she would’ve said that I was lying. And if she thought that I was lying . . . well, you know the rest.

Still, I wonder . . . did she know?

Did anyone know?

Didn’t everyone know?""

Lucy Green Eyes is based on the true-life story of Merlene McDaniel as told from her eyes growing up in the segregated South. Although Merlene spends much of her early years dodging the stinging switches of an overly-strict grandmother, yearning for the embrace of a part-time mother, hoping for a smile from an oncoming stranger, or running from dirty old men, her inner strength allows her to ride on the wings of endless hope, and we can't help but ride along.

Twisted Flash Fiction Volume 1 - An Anthology Of Really Short Stories by Raechel Faulkner



Rating: 5.0 Stars with 1 vote

Category: Contemporary, Short Stories

Price: FREE (Save $2.99) *Price subject to change at any time*

UK Friends Click Here!

Twisted Flash Fiction (Volume 1) is a collection of ten really short stories - and we do mean really short, as each of these short fiction stories is just 500 words (which qualifies them as micro fiction).

That means you can read these modern short stories whenever you have just a few spare moments - on your coffee break, on the bus on your way to work, while you're waiting in line at the bank or supermarket, and so on. So if you're looking for a very short story to while away a few minutes, Twisted Flash Fiction is exactly what you need.

"A collection of short, quick, and satisfying tales that will give you a surprise, a laugh or a smile, but will definitely leave you wanting more." Katie Darden

Even though each very short story in this collection is succinct, they all have a little twist at the end (hence the name - Twisted Flash Fiction).

The full list of all ten flash fiction stories is as follows:

Gowned And Bagged
All Tied Up And Nowhere To Go
50 Grades Of Shea
Highflier
Maison Dietre
Not Suited For Modern Life
Foresight
The Computer Virus
Framed
Now UZI Me, Now You Don't

Our personal favorites are Gowned And Bagged, and Now UZI Me, Now You Don't, but we'd love to hear which yours are.

Note: although these short stories are not sexually explicit, they do contain dark humor and mature themes (e.g. violence, murder), so they are not appropriate for people under the age of 18.

Look out for another collection of really short stories (with a twist) soon!

Church has become boring, religious, and/or irrelevant for many people; while God is none of the above. Why is there such a difference between the perceived church and the real God that the church proclaims?

The early church was unscripted, alive, powerful, unpredictable, life-changing, and world-shaking. Our church services today are usually scripted, predictable, polished performances that seem to be making little impact in our society. Why?

This book compares the early church that we know about in the book of Acts, and church as we know it in America today. Why was the early church powerful and life-changing? Why is it less so today? The answer may surprise you.

Breathless is the first book in the Blue Fire Saga, a paranormal romance series set at a small college in present day Connecticut. There are currently four books in the series.

Weston College freshman Leesa Nyland has been fascinated by vampires since she was three years old. That's when her mom started acting weird, insisting sunlight hurt her skin because she'd been bitten by a one-fanged vampire.

But fascinated doesn't mean Leesa believes. Any more than she believes in blue fire, people who live for centuries, and kisses that can kill. But when her beloved older brother suddenly disappears, she is forced to consider all these and more. She also has to figure out what to do about her mysterious new boyfriend. She knows Rave likes her a lot--so why won't he kiss her?

As Leesa draws closer to finding her brother, she faces some gut-wrenching decisions. Should she risk her mom's life trying to "cure" her? Should she continue seeing Rave, after he reveals his dangerous secret? And most terrifying of all, should she make the ultimate sacrifice-give up her humanity-to save her brother?

Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and the Republican Party have established their manifesto on the driving issues of this election cycle clearly outlining what would be the conservative portfolio of solutions. But their broad church appeal may not bring the connection they want with the voters. The approach they plan to take in solving these issues will have staggering implications to the immediate future of the citizenry of our own country and the world. The fundamentals of the conservative approach could bring a new war to the Middle East and revive old ones at home. As one team whose goal is to gain control of the realpolitik and seize on the growing apathy resulting from the current administration, they have an uphill battle. This book examines core issues from their ticket and relates the concepts to every day Americans. Are their proposals suitable for the whole country? Can they connect their big ideals to the average citizen? Will they fail, just as they claim the current administration has?

In a slow orbit around the sun, just beyond Mars, a mining colony known as Rosetta houses thousands of Consortium citizens who mine the valuable ore Humanity uses for space travel. Over the last three years, Rosetta has grown exponentially, from a tiny mining colony, into an economic behemoth that threatens the delicate balance of power between The Consortium and Coalition - two nations who are still healing from a devastating nuclear war that turned Earth into a hellscape of hopelessness and despair. Rosetta is advertised as a second chance for Consortium citizens - a dream life advertised as "Better living through space." But for many, that dream is a nightmare of debt slavery and brutal living conditions.

After a prominent scientist for The Consortium dies in an apparent suicide, Jim Meade is hired by the victim's family to find out what really happened to their father Dr. Sanjay Sinjakama. There, Meade finds himself caught up in a power struggle between the diabolical CEO of Nebula Mining Dimitri Koschei, and Lazarus Rincon, the charismatic leader of a vicious cult.

With the assistance of his friend and confidant (the beautiful Emeline Hunan), Meade races against the clock to find Sinjakama's murderer and prevent a catastrophic disaster that might mean the end of all life on Earth.

During combat operations on Mindon-2, the plan goes horribly wrong. Casualties mount on both sides. The men and women on the raid find themselves in a merciless crucible that threatens to change them forever.

A deadly influenza virus rages out of control.

There is no easy-fix vaccine. No eleventh-hour containment. Only death.

With no workforce, power plants are unmanned so there’s no means of communication; police and fire departments have collapsed so no one is safe; looters are scavenging everything from big-screen TVs to canned peas.

When Dr. Taeya Sanchez finds herself unceremoniously dismissed from an emergency medical facility in New York, she decides to steal the hospital’s armored van for a midnight escape.

Unfortunately, Rick DeAngelo, a driver for the hospital, has already stocked the van for his own getaway.
Thrown into an unfriendly alliance, these two must pick their way across the dangerous wasteland of America in search of a safe haven. And as the miles roll by, they discover that the living should be feared much more than the festering corpses out there.

Vampires like they're supposed to be, evil

If you want your Vampires with teeth, not sparkly, this one is for you


Hooker, heroin addict, victim, Lucinda Taylor lived her life at the mercy of evil men. After her pimp leaves her for dead she is turned by a passing vampire. Satan's plan for the undead is to spread like a plague, striking at the innocents of the world and turning them toward evil. When Lucinda's master is destroyed she becomes a free agent. Now she has the power, and she uses it to strike back at the evil men who tormented her in life, while making sure that they do not rise again.

Crime boss George Padillas is dying of cancer. His power and money make no difference to the merciless disease. His choices for the afterlife unappealing, Padillas decides that the unlife of a vampire is the best way out. He has a plan, using as his instrument the priest who is chasing Lucinda, to become a free agent vampire.

Lucinda must avoid the attentions of the FBI agent, the priest, the ancient vampire, and the one she killed who rose again, in her quest to take down the crime boss of sunny Tampa. While at the same time controlling the vampire Hunger that pushes her toward evil.

Vampires in the tradition of Bram Stoker, merciless killers whose function is to feed, and feed again, The Hunger is a different take on the vampire genre.
