Rattus New Yorkus by Hunter Shea  (One eBook - International)

Add some screams and squirms to your Halloween season with Rattus New Yorkus!

Deep in the sewers of New York City, the rat population is growing. Dr. Randolph Finch is determined to break the cycle. His new rodenticide, Degenesis, doesn’t kill rats. It sterilizes them from reproducing. But nothing adapts faster than a New York rat . . .
City exterminators and soon-to-be divorced Chris and Benita Jackson think they know how these rats think. They know how rats breed. And they fear that Degenesis has only made these rats stronger. More aggressive. More intelligent. And more ravenous than ever . . .
After a noticeable surge in rat den activity, the Jacksons witness something strange. Without warning, the rats disappear—only to reassemble in a massive lair beneath Grand Central Station. Millions upon millions of them. Working together. Operating as a hive mind. Feasting on the flesh of the homeless below—and planning their all-out attack on the unsuspecting humans above . . .

“How much more fun could this book could be? The answer is none! None more fun!” – Char’s Horror Corner

“All you have to do is buckle up because it is full tilt boogie from the first page to the last.” – Cedar Hollow Reviews

Hunter Shea is the author of over 25 books, with a specialization in cryptozoological horror that includes The Jersey Devil, The Dover Demon, Loch Ness Revenge and many others. His novel, The Montauk Monster, was named one of the best reads of the summer by Publishers Weekly. A trip to the International Cryptozoology Museum will find several of his cryptid books among the fascinating displays. Living in a true haunted house inspired his Jessica Backman: Death in the Afterlife series (Forest of Shadows, Sinister Entity and Island of the Forbidden). An avid podcaster, he can be seen and heard on Monster Men, one of the longest running video horror podcasts in the world, and Final Guys, focusing on weekly movie and book reviews. His nostalgic column about the magic of 80s horror, Video Visions, is featured monthly at Cemetery Dance Online. You can find his short stories in a number of anthologies, including Chopping Block Party, The Body Horror Book and Fearful Fathoms II.

A lifetime New Yorker, Hunter is supported by his loving wife and two beautiful daughters. When he’s not studying up on cryptozoology, he’s an avid explorer of the unknown, having spent a night alone on the Queen Mary, searching for the Warren’s famous White Lady of the Union Cemetery and other mysterious places.

Fyrebyrne Island by Ash Oldfield (One print edition - International)

“With a thunderous roar it fell from the sky, all gleaming yellow scales, talons the size of broad swords with fanged teeth to match, wings held out from its sides like sails, magnificent and glorious.”

The time has come for thirteen-year-old Rachaya to embrace her dragon heritage. Not everyone is pleased by her arrival on the dragon sanctuary, Fyrebyrne Island, however, and her mother’s enemies may well have become her own.

Will Rachaya live long enough to take on the mantle of Queen of the Dragons or will her enemies prevail?

Fyrebyrne Island is available in paperback from all good online retailers.

Child Eater by Tiffany Higgins (writing as Tifanne Messer)  (1 2 print copies - US only)

Plagued by memories of an abnormal childhood, Tabitha devotes her life to chasing the thing that destroyed her life as she knew it. She takes on as many missing children cases as she can, hoping to reunite families so they won't have to suffer as she has. Her mother wants her to "meet a nice boy, settle down and raise a family." Tabitha scoffs at the mere idea. Five year old Alice White is missing. Her room was left in shambles. Nothing about this small town or its haunting woods is normal. Is the "Child Eater" real or merely a story told by parents to keep their children out of the woods. Alice's case strangely parallels the only other missing child case the town has ever reported, but that was thirty years ago. What could they possibly have in common? David Matherson is a local contractor. He just bought a house in town and he and his crew are fixing it up. He wasn't looking to get involved with a woman or with a missing child, but somehow he finds himself in the middle of the mix. Will Tabitha find Alice in time? Can she solve the mystery of the "Child Eater" and bring Alice back home where she belongs?

Tiffany Higgins is an award winning multi genre author of fiction. She’s a wife, mother, and home chef. She loves researching almost as much as she loves writing and has found a way to combine these two loves into her current novel, "Once Upon a Time in Iowa." "I Love the Changing Seasons" won the KART Kids Book List Award for Creative Storytelling in 2013. She also authored two other picture books, an illustrated middle grade chapter book, and a mystery-thriller (under the pen name Tifanne Messer). Tiffany’s love of research and a quest for her own family history led her to her current novel, "Once Upon a Time in Iowa." The characters are based on her own ancestors, who settled in Calhoun township, Iowa in the 1860’s. When she’s not writing, Tiffany enjoys reading from a wide variety of genres, spending time with her family, and cooking. She finds cooking to be therapeutic. She especially loves creating new recipes for her family.
