COMING IN SEPTEMBER:

THE DEAD PENNIES BY ROBERT FORD

After leaving an abusive relationship, Abby visits an old friend on her way to her mother’s in Florida. Hayden’s Uncle Jack is renovating a building into high-end apartments in town, and with the lure of living rent-free in a beautiful loft, Abby becomes the caretaker with the entire building all to herself. Abby hears strange sounds in the building. Shadows move as if they’re alive. Led to believe the structure was previously a school, Abby is told by the last living employee of Harper’s Grove that the building used to be a home for the infirm and unwanted children, the Dead Pennies of society, unfit for circulation.


Abby and Hayden search for the cause of the strange events at Harper’s Grove and find out why the spirits of the dead children won’t sleep until they get vengeance. But there’s also another evil at play—this one of a human nature. Abby’s ex-boyfriend, Nick, finds out where she has run off to. He won’t stop for anything until she’s back in his clutches, but Nick doesn’t expect to come up against the raging spirits of the Dead Pennies.

THE NIGHT PROPHETS BY Paul F. Olson

God Can Touch You Too!
The year is 1989, and in suburban Chicago, the worldwide religious movement known as Universal Ministries is carefully tending its flock. They come by the thousands, young people looking for happiness, searching for peace, drawn by a message of hope and the opportunity to change the world. They come from far and wide to follow their heroes – Reverend Steve, Reverend Bob, and the man they worship most of all, the powerful Reverend Arthur Bach.

But Curt Potter has come to Universal Ministries for another reason. He is on a quest for the truth about his life, about the past. But he could never have imagined what he would find. A place where the shadows come alive at night. A horrific secret at the heart of the church. An unspeakable evil more terrible than his darkest nightmares. Now, with the odds against him and time running out, Curt must convince his friends to join him, stand against the darkness, and fight for their lives, their souls, and their very salvation.
