EPISODES OF VIOLENCE-AVAILABLE NOW!

FROM DAVID BERNSTEIN

Amber had been looking forward to college life. She loved high school and was certain college would be even better, especially since she pledged one of the sororities on campus. At least that was what she thought until the night her soul was fractured, waking the darkness within her. Unable to cope, she returns home, hoping to heal.


Unfortunately, her hometown is wrought with brutal violence. People are being slaughtered in random fashion. The police are clueless. Despite the surrounding chaos, she is still determined to thrive. However, when the violence shows up at her front door and rips her life apart, she realizes that the darkness within her is the only thing that will keep her sane and alive

FEATURED PROMOTION

MUSE

BY LCW Allingham

Terra Desmarais's success as the next big artist in NYC is absolutely inevitable. Her patrons, the associates, Mr. Black, Mr. Silver, and Mr. Green can practically taste the raw talent dripping from the enigmatic trailer park prodigy's dollar store paints.


As the artists around her crash and burn, Terra is only concerned with her strange and compelling paintings. She seems to want nothing of the fame, the money, the sex or the drugs. As greed exposes the true nature of the associates, their artists discover that inspiration is a living thing, and it is hungry.

DARK LIT SETS SAIL WITH 8 PIRATE ADVENTURES!

DARKLIT PRESS SETS SAIL ON KICKSTARTER WITH DARKLIT SAILS: A GROUNDBREAKING PIRATE HORROR ADVENTURE SERIES BY MARGINALIZED AUTHORS


DarkLit Press proudly announces the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for DarkLit Sails, an exhilarating series of pirate horror adventures written by underrepresented and marginalized authors. This daring voyage into the world of dark literature promises to captivate readers with spine-tingling tales of high-seas terror, all while championing diverse voices in the literary landscape.

Underrepresented and marginalized authors have long struggled to find their place in mainstream publishing, but DarkLit Sails aims to change that narrative. By providing a platform for these talented storytellers, DarkLit Press is committed to amplifying voices that have been historically overlooked in the industry.

"We believe that everyone deserves to see themselves reflected in the stories they read," says Andrew Robert, Founder and CEO of DarkLit Press. "With DarkLit Sails, we're not only offering thrilling adventures but also fostering inclusivity and representation in literature."
