Crash Is Here!

Crash Is Here!

Crash is out on Amazon today! Amazon US: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LBNI0B6 Amazon UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00LBNI0B6 And as a special thank you for your patience in waiting for Sean and I to finish this book (and for helping us pick the cover design), we’re releasing Crash at a special introductory price of only .99! That’s this week only, though. After this week, it will go back to its full price of $3.99. (Priced lower than our usual stories as it’s not as long as a typical season.) If you’ve been reading these emails or following the blog for any amount of time, you know this is a story I’ve been working on for a long time — since the late 80s! Crash is a story very close to my heart. I talk a bit about its origins in the Author’s Note at the end of the book, though you should read the story first as the note spoils some things that happen! Here’s the back-of-the-book teaser: CRASH Sometimes the ghosts that haunt us most aren’t the dead. It has been nearly a year since writer Thomas Witt lost his daughter in a horrible car accident which nearly killed him. He and his wife are attempting to have another child and put their lives back together. However, he can’t move on. In addition to his daughter, there’s something else missing — specifically his memories for six months prior to the accident. He finds himself obsessively drawn to accident scenes where he photographs the carnage in attempts to reclaim his memories. But what he finds in the photographs may just destroy him. Crash is the...
What’s Your Escape?

What’s Your Escape?

Hey there, Goners, Dave here. Have you ever been carried away by a great short story? Short stories have always served as an escape for me. When I was bullied in middle school, a loser with few friends in high school, and working the midnight shift for years at a gas station, short stories offered an escape from crushing reality. They took me away to other worlds. But more importantly, they inspired me to create my own escapes. They inspired me to write. Whether I was reading Stephen King’s short stories, Robert McCammon’s Blue World, Alfred Hitchcock collections, O’Henry tales, or old sci-fi anthologies that my grandmother had given me, short stories held an immediate magic that even surpassed full length books. These short stories showed me that there was more out there than my own little world. Yes, a lot of what they showed me was made up, but it didn’t matter. These worlds and the people within them helped a lonely boy get through some rough times. When Sean and I started Dark Crossings, they served as a break between our epic serials. And in just two years, we’ve written 18 of these little journeys into the unknown. Dark Crossings: The Collection includes 18 short stories written between 2011-2103. At more than 186,000 words, this is our largest book yet. Part homage to our favorite writers and TV shows like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, and even some of our 80s inspiration, Tales from the Darkside, and part experimentation, these stories have become reader favorites over the course of the past two years. While most of...

Will Cassidy’s addictions destroy her new family with Emma and Jon? Can Milo trust the mysterious Don Bellows? What will happen when Brock Houser launches his own investigation? WhiteSpace is a character-driven, mysterious, sci-fi thriller that would be right at home with superbly scripted TV shows likeLOST, The Killing, and Fringe.

Halloween Free Fear For All: 13 Free Books from Collective Inkwell

Halloween Free Fear For All: 13 Free Books from Collective Inkwell

Sean and I LOVE Halloween. When I was a kid growing up in South Florida, Halloween wasn’t just the one time of year I was allowed to pig out on candy, but it was also when the cool autumn breeze would usually start coming in. One of my favorite memories of back then was checking out horror stories from the library, curling up in a big chair when I got home, and proceeding to scare myself silly. I don’t know if it was the cool air or the ghost and skeleton decorations, but the stories always seemed just a bit spookier, and possible, around Halloween. With that in mind, Sean and I want to share the Halloween spirit and make some of our Collective Inkwell catalog free for two days only — October 31 and November 1, 2012. Included are 12 short stories collected in Dark Crossings Volumes 1 & 2 and the first season of our dark fantasy thriller, ForNevermore. Feel free to share this list and tell your friends. And if you like the stories, we’d love you to leave reviews! So grab a book or few, curl up in your favorite place, and enjoy! Happy Halloween!
