Grab EASY MONEY #Free Today!

Easy Money: Book #1 of the  Deadly Reality TV Series by Sea Caummisar

On Sale #FREE – Download NOW
51Cg95vRX6L

What would you do to earn ‘Easy Money’?
There’s a new reality TV game show that pays contestants to hurt themselves. How much pain would you endure to make some quick cash? Would you shoot yourself with a nail gun for $10,000? There are plenty of contestants willing to go on live TV to make a quick buck. Would you watch the show? The ratings are looking good. ‘Easy Money’ becomes the most talked about show on television.
Follow Damon Dahmer, the executive producer, as he creates such a bizarre television show. Damon is not only making good television, he is also struggling with his own inner needs to watch people in pain. Slowly, Damon pushes boundaries to find what is acceptable and what is not. Throw in his own revenge vendetta, and Damon’s personal pain show viewings, and you get the first book in the series of ‘Deadly Reality TV’.
Is the real horror what people are doing to themselves? Or is it the man that Damon reveals himself to be? Maybe it’s just scary that people are actually watching the show.
Viewer (reading) discretion is advised. Not for the faint of heart. Recommended for 18+ due to some violent content. Warning: There are some bloody scenes

I was looking for something a little different, and I am so happy that I found this new series! Fans of Matt Shaw, Sam West, Jon Athan, etc. are going to die for Sea Caummisar!
As a ‘viewer’ of EASY MONEY, I was screaming for more while cringing and ‘watching’ through my fingers. Episode one sucked me in, and even though episode two (the show, not the book), was kinda lame for us sickos, the finale made up for it and blew me away!
The ending of the book was so twisted, I did not see that coming! I’m hooked! I can’t wait to read the next two books – PAIN FOR GAIN, and HURT BANK.

I killed a man so it is only right I am put to death…


The execution was scheduled and the last meal consumed.
The coolness of the poisons entering the blood system
slowed the heart rate and sent him on the way to Judgement.
He had paid for his crime with years on Death Row waiting for this moment –
now he would pay for them again as the judgment continued…

Matt Shaw,  author of Sick B*stards, PORN and 2016: A Year of Horror and Pain, is giving us a #FREE DOWNLOAD of this short, psychological horror.  HURRY! Limited Time Offer!!

No Sugar, No Spice, Nothing Nice

2017 marks the 8th Annual
Women in Horror Month!

wihm8-logo-nogrrl-black-xl

This inclusive and positive movement is open to everyone, just as the horror genre should be.

Women in Horror Month (WiHM) is an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries. Whether they are on the screen, behind the scenes, or contributing in their other various artistic ways, it is clear that women love, appreciate, and contribute to the horror genre.

WiHM celebrates these contributions to horror throughout the year via the official WiHM blog, Ax Wound, The Ax Wound Film Festival, and with the official WiHM event/project database in February. This database—in conjunction with the WiHM social media fan base—actively promotes do-it-yourself annual film screenings, blogs/articles, podcasts, and any other form of creative media with the ultimate goal of helping works by and featuring women reach a wider audience.

Christmas Shopping by Angel Gelique

A tale of Christmas mayhem…

picsart_1481165928793

All Jilly Carson wanted to do was get a little Christmas shopping done with her best friend, Peyton. But when Peyton can’t meet her at the mall, Jilly finds herself feeling anxious and alone as her mother’s cautionary words echo in her head:
“Don’t talk to strangers. Don’t put yourself in that position again. You remember what happened last time….”
When a tall, blonde-haired stranger begins to stalk her, Jilly does everything she can to avoid him.
Feeling scared and vulnerable, she finally decides to leave the mall.
But the blonde-haired man won’t let her flee quite so easily….

 

Download a little bit of horrific holiday fun from Angel Gelique this season and help prepare yourself for the joys of shopping – the crowds… the Christmas music… people in general… ugh! Shoot me now! 

17 year old Jilly Carson just wants to get a little shopping done and be left the fuk alone in the process – too bad the blonde haired stranger can’t take any not-so-subtle hints!

A game of cat & mouse ensues – and there is definitely some blood splatter left on the trap! 

You can get this eBook for FREE (all formats) at Smashwords,  and it’s available FREE for Kindle Unlimited subscribers, or just $ .99 on Amazon.

ZAC’S HAUNTED HOUSE – A Visual Novel by Dennis Cooper

CINEMATIC LITERATURE

Dennis Cooper has broken the cool people’s internet with Zac’s Haunted House.
It’s part of a “cycle-in-progress of novels” inspired by visual artist Zac Farley.

#ZHH DESCRIPTION

Dennis Cooper’s tenth novel, [#ZHH], bears all of the earmarks of his legendary and controversial work – intricate formal & stylistic play, disturbing content, an exploration of the borderline between fantasy and reality, concern for the emotions and dilemmas of youth, etc. – but it is both something unique in his body of writing and possibly something of a world’s first in the novel genre itself.

Instead of gathering materials from language, sentences, and the developmental character and narrative possibilities allowed and restricted by written fiction, Cooper has turned his characteristic inventiveness on the animated gif, employing gifs’ tightly wound, looping visual possibilities, nervous rhythms, tiny storylines, and their status as dismembered, twitching eye candy to compose a short novel of unexpected complexity, strangeness, poetry and comedy.

“Zac’s Haunted House” is as fun and eerie to explore as its namesake attraction, and, the more closely one searches and decodes its carefully detailed sequences and construction, a deep and fraught fiction puzzle.

AVAILABLE NOW as a FREE DOWNLOAD or to VIEW ONLINE
