"The Journal of James Halldon".

There is a place where nightmares are real. It is a dark and terrifying place, hidden from the world we know by borders that only the most unfortunate of souls will ever cross.

James Halldon woke up in the dark, alone, without any food or water, without a clue where he was, and with no memory of where he came from.

It only got stranger.

James has somehow found his way to The Corridor, a midnight place that no human should ever see and the prison of a creature that has destroyed entire worlds. Somehow James has to learn to survive.

But he is not alone. The lost souls of others who have drifted into The Corridor, and died, also haunt this world, and they have been waiting a long time for someone to come along.

The Journal of James Halldon is a dark sci-fi novel that follows Halldon's struggle to survive whilst trying to understand the strange, dark, and terrifying world in which he is trapped.

If it's dark when you wake up, and you can hear growling, then close your eyes and maybe it will go away.

But maybe it won't...

The Art of Falling Apart, by Mark Dawson. (Still free?)

This contemporary thriller will appeal to Quentin Tarantino fans! If you've read Dawson's The Black Mile, you know you're into a compelling, well-written read with this one - which is free today!

From Amazon reviewers:
"Dawson writes beautifully and handles a complicated, Pulp Fiction style narrative with a confident touch."
"I particularly enjoyed the interesting timeline."
"Dawson takes us into the hidden world of a modern rock band."

Already translated into multiple languages, Mark Dawson's previously best-selling tale of sex, drugs (and rock and roll) makes its Kindle debut.

A story of greed, duplicity and death in the flamboyant, super-ego world of rock and roll. Dystopia have rocketed up the charts in Europe, so now it's time to crack America. The opening concert in Las Vegas is a sell-out success -- but secret envy and open animosity have begun to tear the group apart.

The lead singer, Vid, is on a roller-coaster of self-indulgence and egomania...Jared, the lead guitarist, resents being shouldered out of the limelight...Spin, the warm-up DJ, just cannot resist dangerous extra-marital adventures...nor can their manager, Alex, resist the lure of personal gain that greed and duplicity could bring him.

Then one of them dies, in an apparent accident, and there begins to unravel a chilling saga of dark emotions, cynical manipulation, and murderously ruthless self-interest.

Whether you are a vinyl junkie or you watch the pop world in fascinated horror, you will find The Art of Falling Apart as bewitching as the world it depicts.
