LocalGodsAvailable now from author Mark Hurst, Local Gods

We’ll call him Pete Collins. It’s the name he’s using for now and is as good as any.

The good folk of Little Baddington have a few secrets of their own, and Pete Collins is about to find out how this little hamlet has remained untouched by the outside world, the type of bargain it’s struck for that privilege and with whom.

MountainFastArriving 24 June from writer S. J. Shank and Carthago Nova Press, Mountain Fast

Hungary, 1468. At Kuszkol, the old-timers say, shadows walk and men go mad. But sixty years after the remote mountain fortress was first abandoned, it is attracting soldiers once again.
The bishop’s messenger András carries a letter for the new commander. On his party’s northward journey, he downplays the old tales. Yet he cannot explain why the castle’s beacon should burn the night before their arrival. Nor why, once they arrive, the garrison is missing. Nor can he explain the mysterious charcoal figures they find etched on the walls.
By the time they settle down for their first night at Kuszkol, András faces an even more pressing question—why is he speaking in his dead wife’s voice? Available for pre-order now in eBook and paperback, you can guarantee your copy here.

CrimsonCobblestonesOut now from author Marie LeStrange and Crimson Cult Media, Crimson Cobblestones

In the shadow of Benjamin Franklin’s elite circles, Philadelphia 1739 is gripped by a series of grisly deaths, weaving a tale so dark it can only be whispered along the gaslit cobblestones. This masterful Gothic Thriller is a mesmerizing blend of historical nuance and chilling suspense, where love intertwines with deceit, and murder stains the street.

At the center of this mystery is Charlotte, a young woman grappling with the violent loss of her mother. As the city’s cobblestones run crimson with blood, she finds herself ensnared in a nightmarish realm of depraved cults and dark magic, uncovering a labyrinth of secrets that could spell doom for both she and her new enigmatic lover– Ben.

With echoes of ancient incantations and the sinister plot of a Luciferian cult lurking in the shadows, she must navigate a world where the occult and her own haunted past are inextricably linked. Available now in eBook, with other editions to follow, you can grab your copy here.
