For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by horror stories. In fact, the first fiction I had ever written was a horror story when I was a preteen. I wrote about my terrible first tale here.
Anyway, over the last few years while writing my various novels for Rhemalda Publishing, I wrote a few horror short stories. If I suddenly had an inspired idea I'd literally stop everything else and write that story. A lot of times that story would be horror. I decided it might be fun to put out three of those stories in a collection on Amazon.
When I heard about Amazon's Kindle Select program where they allow Kindle books to be given away for free for a limited time, I knew I needed to do this. So, starting today (Wednesday, March 7, 2012) through tomorrow (Thursday, March 8, 2012) I will be giving away my horror collection for free.
If you have a Kindle or a tablet like an Ipad (simply download the Kindle app to your device) you can grab my collection for free. If for no other reason, check it out for Steve Murphy's amazing cover. And if you miss this deal, the good news is that the collection is still available for less than 3 bucks. Can you say, "such a deal?"
So, download Death Alarm, give it a read, and if you like what I've written please review my collection on Amazon. To make it even easier, I have provided a link. Also, do me a huge favor and share this deal with your friends and social media. I hope to give away a ton of books.
Here is the cover copy for Death Alarm:
From the author of Tamed and The Light of Epertase trilogy come Douglas R. Brown's twisted tales of the macabre. In this three-story collection, Douglas explores the devastating depths of mental illness, the evil that burns within men who kill, and angels who aren't always what they seem.
In the title story, Death Alarm, Douglas uses his real-life experiences as a career firefighter to explore the consequences when those who go to the rescue become those most at risk. When pure evil battles the noblest of professions, the blood will flow like water from the very hydrants that firemen use every day.
Following the title story is a psychological tale entitled Janitor. Working the nightshift in a run-down factory, Jeb quickly realizes he may not be alone. What does the man dressed in black want with him? And can Jeb keep his sanity long enough to find out?
Closing out the collection is a brutal story titled Skelwaller Lane where sometimes even the most horrible behavior can be justified if only you listen to how the true story begins.
In addition, Douglas, by way of Rhemalda Publishing, has included an exclusive 2-chapter preview of his newest break-through novel, Tamed, where werewolves are sold as pets. Recently called, "the Jurassic Park of werewolf stories," Douglas is excited to give you a peek with this free preview.
In the Death Alarm short stories, Douglas grabs you by your arms.
And then he chops them off. Sensitive stomachs need not continue.
