Rumors of a deadly book have been floating around the dark corners of the deep web. A disturbing tale about a mysterious figure who preys on those who read the book and subjects them to a world of personalized terror. Jesse Wheeler–former guitarist of the heavy metal group The Rising Dead–was quick to discount the ominous folklore associated with the book. It takes more than some urban legend to frighten him. Hell, reality is scary enough. Seven years ago his greatest responsibility was the nightly guitar solo. Then one night when Jesse was blackout drunk, he accidentally injured his son, leaving him permanently disabled. Dreams of being a rock star died when he destroyed his son’s future. Now he cuts radio jingles and fights to stay clean. But Jesse is wrong.

The legend is real–and tonight he will become the protagonist in an elaborate scheme specifically tailored to prey on his fears and resurrect the ghosts from his past. Jesse is not the only one in danger, however.

By reading the book, you have volunteered to participate in the author’s deadly game, with every page drawing you closer to your own personalized nightmare.

The real horror doesn’t begin until you reach the end. That’s when the evil comes for you.






Will Haunt YouWill Haunt You by Brian Kirk

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Brian Kirk is a man that writes like no other. His horror is psychological, complex, and freaky.
One man’s dark secret will come to light, and his life and that of his family will be on the line.
WILL HAUNT YOU is original and mind-bending. Not your typical horror novel, this one will turn your brain upside down and spin you right round, baby.!

4.5 stars!

(Alien Agenda Publishing) 5 Quick Shots w/ Jackson R. Thomas

Jackson R. Thomas is a lonely member of the Night Audit Club. Working for a motel on Route 1, he’s hiding away in eastern Maine, writing freakishly horrific stories for Alien Agenda Publishing. His latest is the vicious, yet deceptively titled, PARADISE, MAINE.


Q: What’s Paradise, Maine about?

JRT: A person known as “The Watcher” is living in the woods and attacking unsuspecting victims that get “placed” at a cabin overlooking the coast. It’s a very rough story. Not for your sometimes horror reader. This one is a splatterpunk book. If you like modern literary horror, you do not want to go near this one. I think it’s much more Edward Lee than say, Stephen King.

Q: How does it compare to your previous book, The Beast of Brenton Woods?

JRT: I don’t really know how to answer that. That one was a werewolf book, this one is probably even more violent, and I hope, frightening.

Q: Alien Agenda Publishing’s motto is “Creating Horror with Heart”.  From what you’re telling me, it doesn’t sound like you got the memo. Is that fair to say?

JRT: Well, I mean, I’m not going to say it’s a heartfelt story, but there is a bit of good in there, too. You just have to look a little harder to find it.

Q: What part of Paradise, Maine was the most challenging to write?

JRT: I wanted to write a harder book, but I still wanted some characters that you liked. I don’t mind writing people for you to hate, but I hope I succeeded at giving readers a couple of people to pull for.

Q: Who was your favorite character in this book to write?

JRT: The Watcher. I know, he’s the bad guy, but is he really? Well, yeah, he is, but I think you’ll see it’s a bit more complicated than that.

Q: What’s next?

JRT: I’m working on the sequel to The Beast of Brenton Woods.
