Who will survive?

Darcy was a perfectly normal teenage girl, enjoying the summer after completing her A Levels with her boyfriend Alec. Until the night strange creatures begin falling from the sky, infecting people and transforming them into crazed, animalistic cannibals.

Having lost everything in one foul swoop – her parents, her home and all future plans – all Darcy can do is try to protect the people she does have left. Together, she and Alec, along with her younger sister, sarcastic best-friend and Alec’s alcoholic father, set off on a journey to find somewhere safe in a world where everything is different.

However, when they do finally discover a haven, a place to call home again, along with a community of fellow surivors, can they remain? And who will survive?




A Word from the Author

Author M L Sparrow pictureThe Demon Inside was the first book I ever published, though it wasn’t the first I wrote, and I’ll admit I was wholly unprepared and naïve about the kind of advertising I would need to do. Looking back, I’m not sure what I was thinking, but being so excited about finally publishing my book, I hadn’t even considered the need to advertise!

The last two years, since The Demon Inside was published, have been such a learning curve. I now know which paid-promotions are worthwhile and which are just a waste of my limited funds. I know that professional (often expensive!) covers are a great investment. And I know that the best form of advertising are reviews, reviews, reviews!

I’ve met some amazing authors and bloggers who have all helped and encouraged me and I’m happy that I’m now in the position to do the same for other self-published authors in need of a little advice.

The sun has broken through the inevitable hole in the Earth’s atmosphere, and the only survivors are those underground during the event. Seven young people, led by a girl in a wheelchair, her nerdy high school attendant, and a boy with Down Syndrome, meet in the ruins of a private school in their hometown of Marion, Massachusetts. One finds a portable radio in a ruined basement, and the group hears the plea of the one station still broadcasting. “Please come to Rockport.” So begins a journey across the length of the state, in hopes of finding the one parent who may still be alive.




A Word from the Author

Author Buddy Cushman pictureRosy is in her wheelchair, Matt is her nerdy attendant for the summer, Home Slice has Down Syndrome. They are underground in an aquarium when the sun burns through the Earth’s atmosphere and cooks the entire, 24-hour rolling planet. They make their way to the burned surface, miraculously find a way to keep Rosy’s chair charged and, after discovering their families and homes and everything they knew is gone, find their way to the ruins of a school in their hometown of Marion, Massachusetts. There they meet up with four younger boys, and when one of them discovers a still working portable radio in the ruins of a basement the group scans the dial and finds just one station still broadcasting – WANN in Rockport. That leads the group of seven on a journey across the state, and along the way they are joined by a family hiding in the underground Tube, and later, an alcoholic scientist who has given up on life. It’s just possible, they all come to believe, that one parent remains alive – in Rockport. This is a story of hope in a seemingly hopeless world, and faith – faith in each other, and , eventually, faith in miracles.

Know More

At birth Attila was saddled with a name he could never live up to. At age 7 he was forced into a body he could never excel in. At age 14 he chose to commit actions he could never atone for. Unfortunately, much like his namesake, the rules and expectations of others weren’t something he gave much attention to. Unfortunately for those others who wanted to force them on him that is. Especially since at age 21, he got the ultimate “reset”. If only he can find the “On button” for all his new abilities.




A Word from the Author

Author Michael Shaffer pictureImagine for a moment yourself in your current life. You’ve worked hard all your life, striving to get ahead, become better. For some of you this has been a relatively short amount of time. For others, decades. You may even be in your evening years, well into retirement. You may or may not be successful, but you’ve always tried your best. Yet you’ve always felt you were being held back. That there was something preventing you from being your full potential.
Then an asteroid from nowhere swings past Earth, showering it with a weird dust over the span of a week. A couple days after the dust starts falling, you get ravenously hungry. You eat and drink everything in sight. Even things that you might have been deathly allergic to, you devour without thought or issue. You swell to three-times your size. A fat blob that can barely move. Then the hunger passes and you all but pass-out in your bed.
Two weeks later, you wake up. Not only is the fat gone, but you have the body of a twenty-five year old you, only in top physical condition. All injuries gone as if they never existed. All scars gone. Perfect eyesight. Only it isn’t just top. You are now ten to twenty percent faster and stronger than pretty much everyone else. Not only that, your mind moves around problems with ease. To say nothing of that haunting music you hear/don’t hear that seems to guide you.
Quite a few of you reading this have often thought “If only I had the knowledge I do know when I had the body of when I was younger.” Now you do. What are you going to do?
