Shirley Redmond has a job, a family, and a home; all things to be thankful for. In spite of her blessings, she feels discontent with a day-to-day life lacking in excitement and purpose. But that’s about to change.
When a brush with death gives Shirley a brand-new perspective, she wrestles with the enormity of it. Until finally deciding to change lives for the better – starting with her own. That will be her first mistake.

From the author of Misery and Other LinesDownwind, Alice, and But Worse Will Come comes a new novel of horror. Available in eBook and paperback editions, you can grab your copy here, now.

Now-Its-DarkAvailable now from writer Lynda E. Rucker and Swan River Press, Now It’s Dark, a collection of ten stories

A student’s research into an obscure pulp writer takes on increasingly sinister tones; three friends reunite to fight an evil they thought they’d escaped decades earlier; a woman in a seemingly perfect marriage finds herself haunted by the mysterious absences in her memories of their life together.

In her third collection, Lynda E. Rucker reminds us that mystery lurks even in the most banal settings—a British holiday park, a Moldovan tower block, a stretch of industrial wasteland—but as these ten stories reveal, there can also remain a dreadful beauty amidst the horror. Available now in a limited, signed hardback edition, you can pick up your copy here.
