it’s not coming alone… ‘The Wraith’ #Horror #Suspense #Thriller @bryanalaspa @SDSXXTours

The Wraith
by Bryan W. Alaspa
Genre: Horror, Suspense, Thriller
***FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING THE MAN FROM TAURED COMES A COMPANION
NOVEL EXPLORING NEW DIMENSIONS OF HORROR***
The tiny town of Knorr, PA, is one of those places where the walls
between this reality and others is very thin. It draws people from
all over the world and sometimes things slip through from our world
into others while sometimes things slip from other worlds into our
own. Nightmare things.
During World War II an experiment was done using a steam engine to see if
entering another dimension could create instant transportation of
goods and men from one place to another. It unlocked a nightmare from
another dimension and only agents from the agency IDEA were able to
stop reality from unraveling. The train, known as The Wraith,
disappeared along with the scientist who built it.
Now, in present day, a young man hears the distant sound of a train
whistle. The rundown train station at the end of the wooded path is
somehow regenerating. Plus, people in and around Knorr are acting a
little stranger than normal.
The Wraith is coming back, but it’s not coming alone.
Will Knorr survive?
Will the universe?

A utopia for some, a dystopia for others ‘Metrofloat New York’ #ScienceFiction #thriller @wqbelle @SDSXXTours

Metrofloat New York
by William Quincy Belle
Genre: Science Fiction
A Post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi thriller.
Several hundred years in the future, Earth is a different planet. Antigravity
has been invented and “flying” has given way to “floating”:
giant platforms with cities remain above the growing surface
temperatures as enclaves of the privileged. A global pandemic has
wiped out 80% of those on the ground, and a virulent, flesh-eating
disease, necrofasc, has left most with artificial body parts. Insects
are the main food staple. A utopia for some, a dystopia for others.
Metrofloat New York, a futuristic city of thirty million, is run by an oligarchy
of five rich and powerful people. An unknown assassin, working from
within the system, attempts to seize control and declare himself
dictator by methodically removing all rivals. Detective Matthew Heart
of the Metropolitan Police must deal with his partner, a cyborg
policewoman, his unofficial family, a transgender woman and her
one-legged daughter, and a mysterious assailant bent on taking over
the world by killing anyone who stands in his way.
William Quincy Belle is just a guy. Nobody famous; nobody rich; just some guy
who likes to periodically add his two cents worth with the hope,
accounting for inflation, that $0.02 is not over evaluating his
contribution. He claims that at the heart of the writing process is
some sort of (psychotic) urge to put it down on paper and likes to
recite the following, which so far he hasn’t been able to attribute
to anyone: “A writer is an egomaniac with low self-esteem.”
You will find Mr. Belle’s unbridled stream of consciousness floating
around in cyberspace.

by Kathleen O’Donnell

Claire’s a rich widow on a mission, who partakes with abandon from the
pharmacy stored in her Prada purse. Rob’s an aging,
hygiene-challenged porn star and reality show celebrity.

Stuck on the same flight, bound for the same eccentric town, she hates him
on sight. She thinks she knows all there is to know about him but is
dying to find out more. He’s disinterested but somehow still sees
right through her. But they’ve both got big problems. Hers is in
the Louis Vuitton carryon in the overhead. His is in his pants.
To Claire’s dismay, Rob turns up everywhere she goes, yet they form
the unlikeliest of friendships. He cares for her in ways she’s
never known before. He could be the best thing in her life—or the
worst.
In a place full of secrets, including their own, they
help each other find answers they didn’t even know they were
looking for, yet some questions linger. What happened to Rob’s
first wife? What happened to Claire’s husband? Will they live
through the answers?
The Last Day for Rob Rhino is a dark,
tragic, and funny novel about the bonds of family and friendship. If
you’d love a Gillian Flynn, Paula Hawkins, or Stieg Larsson novel
with a humorous twist, this would be it.

Todd’s influence as a D.A. has kept her from prison, but her sanity
remains on a knife-edge.
A therapist with an agenda

before—one that might help explain Preston’s own misdeeds.

When Preston’s absent husband, Brendan, suddenly turns up and tries to

lure Walker as the sacrificial lamb ‘The Palm Reader’ #Thriller #Suspense @notlrealty @SDSXXTours

The Palm Reader
Jackson Walker #2
by Christopher Bowron
Genre: Thriller, Suspense
“… fantastic characters and a truly spellbinding plot—the best book in its genre
I have ever read.”
Susan Keefe, TheColumbiaReview.com
A gripping thriller, which excels in unusual twists and turns,
explorations of family heritage and truths, and one man’s ongoing
journey as he explores new connections and threats to his
life.
Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review
Jackson Walker once again faces his demons in this
haunting sequel to Devil in the Grass. Now
working as an investigative lawyer for Peter Robertson, Jack teams
with Janie Callaghan to solve the disappearance of a sleazy client
specializing in taboo pornography. Meanwhile the evil head of the
Church of Satan weaves an intricate web to lure Walker as the
sacrificial lamb in an Everglades Black Mass ritual.
Christopher Bowron has always loved a great story, and possesses a unique
gift of the magic to tell one. He can be described as a “thriller writer,
with a mysterious undertone,” who can take his readers on
believable journeys to the sharp edge of reality and the
paranormal. The use of seat belts is optional while reading his
work, but you may need to buckle up and hold on tight from time to
time.
Christopher’s roots are Canadian, and his two children make the fifth generation of
his family to live in Niagara-on-the-Lake Ontario. His other
home in Southwest Florida, in an area of everglades and ocean,
provided him with ammunition for his imagination. This inspired his
love of writing, and became the backdrop in the creation of his first
published, best-selling novel. “Devil In The Grass” and
soon to be released sequel “The Palm Reader.”
He is fortunate to be able to live his own personal great story, which includes
graduating from Brock University with a Bachelor of Arts in History,
creating a wonderful family and life, running a successful real
estate brokerage, having the opportunities to enjoy fine wine, sports
and getting away to do some salt water fishing in Florida whenever
possible.
