This short story is told in two parts.

Part 1: Mike and Captain

On the Coast, Mike runs into an old Sea Captain and they form an instant bond. Mike learns of Captain’s boat, his son and daughter-in-law. Captain is desperate to get off Carolina Beach, but there is a problem (and it is a big problem) the town is swarming with zombies. Mike decides to help the old man fight his way through the hordes in order to gain safe passage on his boat.

Part 2: Mike and Myrtle Beach

Alone again. Mike finds an old motel on the South Carolina coast and decides to call it home. While rebuilding his life and motel he meets some new friends, fights off countless numbers of zombies, and settles into his new life by the sea.

Mike woke up, and lay on the couch for a moment trying to figure out where he was – dream world or real world. He smelled fresh food cooking.

“You okay?” Captain asked from the doorway.

“Yeah, just some bad dream demons,” Mike replied, sitting up and placing his feet on the floor. He sat there a moment and stared at the roaring fire, trying to let the nightmare fog clear in his head.

“I know all about those. I have breakfast made. Sausage, oatmeal, nothing too grand. Come on when you’re ready,” Captain replied, as he made his way back to the kitchen.

Mike stood up and stretched, and made his way out into the hall. When he was in the small hallway, he saw not only a packed duffel bag, but an ancient wheel chair. It looked like it’d rarely been used. On the side table near the door were three pistols and extra ammunition. Captain looked like he was prepared not only to leave, but to handle his business if need be. Mike smiled and made his way into the kitchen . . .

That’s it for the posts, but that’s not it for the story. This short story releases tomorrow – 9/1/2017 along with the Mike Beem Chronicles. Would you like a free copy of either one of them?

Killer Treads

Bob paused for a moment. “Wait, how do you know I have a garage? How do you know my name is Bob?” The phone line went dead as the money evaporated from his hand. A second later he heard a large bang in the garage. Something had just crash landed on the floor.

He put the phone back in its cradle and went downstairs to investigate. With a cautious ease, he opened the door that led into the garage, and flipped on the light. In the corner where he wanted to put the treadmill, there it sat, gleaming in a pool of light, all shiny and new.

Bob looked around the room, but there was no sign of a break in, no sign anyone had been here. The place was locked as tight as he had left it . . .

He hopes he is only dreaming, because all of this seems a bit too real.

5. Need to Feed: Another year. Another massacre looming. When the sun rises on the Old West town of Saltwater Junction this town will face head on two fierce predators. Vampires who stalk you in the sunlight and werewolves that transform with the sunrise. This short story rewrites the legends and all you’ve ever known about these creatures of the night. Where do you go when there’s no place left to hide?

Mike walked into the house on feet that felt like lead. He tripped and slipped down the hall, a human zombie, fearing the worst, knowing the worst, but refusing to accept it. When he reached the back door, he pushed it open, and crumbled to the floor.

At least ten zombies were bent over in a crude circle, chomping, gnawing, and devouring his family. He wanted to cry, wanted to scream, as he stood up and raced into the backyard. He started bashing zombie skulls, and only paused his assault when he saw one of the zombies was wearing a red devil mask complete with horns on top of its head. The Satanist looked up at him with eyes glowing gold.

Mike stumbled backwards, dropping the tire iron, and into a bar filled with Satanists wearing red devil masks. They looked at him with glowing gold eyes. He turned to run and found himself sitting inside a truck cruising down the coast, but the ocean wasn’t the ocean he had come to love and know. The water was blood red and it seemed to scream as it crashed onto the shore, like it was alive and determined to swallow him whole.

Mike slid the truck to a stop just as he tumbled off the couch and onto the floor. He stood up, and looked around the cold living room. He was somehow back in his house, and the place looked fresh and clean. He heard noises from the kitchen, smelled fresh coffee brewing. He made his way into that room, and saw his wife standing by the stove, wearing a dress and apron, cooking breakfast. He walked over and reached out for her, but when he touched her skin it felt lifeless. She turned to face him with dead grey eyes and that’s when he saw she was nothing more than a rotten zombie, face and body covered in maggots, blood oozing from the many bites she had sustained in the brutal attack that took her life. She reached out for him with a hand that was squirming with bugs, and as he backed away, he began to scream.

Tuesday Promotions (8/22/2017): Nightlight Tales (Demon Energy)

5 out of 5 stars – Terrific plots and plenty of chills and thrills

13 tales of terror.

13 tales that will have you reaching for the nightlight before you go to bed tonight.

Demon Energy

A man lay on a bed.

His dreams were vivid and strong–evil things done by evil beings haunted those dreams.

His soul felt lost, departed.

He wasn’t himself.

How long had he been this way?

How long had he suffered in this torment of a hellish nightmare?

He wasn’t sure.

A distant knock on the door.

No, it wasn’t a knock. It was pounding. It was the sound of breaking. The door shattered inward. He managed to turn his sweaty head, brown hair matted to his skin, face covered in a thick sweat, body covered in cuts and bruises–all self-inflicted by his fingernails and his own fists.

He felt his soul losing again. The demons were crawling around inside of him, pushing his soul back to the shadows. He had no choice but to watch. He was a passenger inside his own body.

The demons raised him into the air, levitated him for all to see. Then his small skinny frame started to spin like a pig in a roast. Spinning violently around and around and around and around, and then he stopped. He was now sideways, and looking at the crowd who had come to take him away. He hung there like a limp rag doll. His blue eyes were not his eyes. Those two orbs now belonged to the thousand demons who tormented him . . .

The stories in this chilling collection are as follows.

1. The Man from the Road: A man suddenly appears on a road. He’s lost, confused, no clue as to how he got there. He starts to walk and stops suddenly. There’s a bonfire in a field nearby.

Mike pulled his truck up to the curb, unlatched his seat belt, and fell out of the cab onto the ground. He stood up and looked at his house, as Trivium screamed out a metal beat from the cab of his truck. He then looked up and down the street, twice more to be sure he wasn’t seeing things. Zombies, those things from the TV shows and movies he loved to watch, littered the streets in all directions. They were all around him, and as he stood there several of them tried to attack. He grabbed a tire iron and whacked both of them in the head, shattering their undead skulls, splattering blood all over the ground. He made his feet start moving and hurried up to his front door, which was hanging slightly open. He pushed it inward and what he saw stunned him.

Blood.

So much blood.

Gallons and gallons of it.

Dripping from the light fixtures.

Splattered on the walls.

The ceiling.

The hallway floor.

Five zombies lay dead, a rolling pin and cast iron skillet covered in blood and hair lay scattered near them. Mike looked from the dead zombies to the trail of blood leading to the back door. He saw one of his kid’s shoes and one of his wife’s laying in the blood trail.

13 tales of terror.

13 tales that will have you reaching for the nightlight before you go to bed tonight.

Sandy and The Stranger

The drag strip/abandoned road was nearing its last run for the night. Two competitors were left. Sandy in his black Chevy Nova, and Larry in his Ford Mustang. Both cars were powerful machines, filled with horsepower, ready to eat asphalt.

The burnout was first, a momentary tire spin in order to soften those rear tires. Then both men backed up their cars, revved their engines, and waited with hands gripped tight on the steering wheel. Their eyes were focused, straight forward, bodies pumped and full of adrenaline.

A brunette girl with more chest than brains stepped up in front of them, raised a flag, and then waved it.

Hungry engines roared, pistons pumped and popped, exhausts sang their perfect sound, as the cars blasted off from the starting line in the moon-filled night.

Down the road they went, side by side, cars so evenly matched that neither one could pull away from the other.

The finish line loomed, racing towards them at a blinding speed . . .

The stories in this chilling collection are as follows.

1. The Man from the Road: A man suddenly appears on a road. He’s lost, confused, no clue as to how he got there. He starts to walk and stops suddenly. There’s a bonfire in a field nearby.

“That’s a long time to be on your own.”

“It is, Captain. It truly is,” Mike replied and turned back to the window, as a gust of wind lifted up a pile of snow and tossed it across the ground.

“Do you need anything before I turn in?” Captain asked, using his cane to stand up. He tossed his cigar into the fire and stood there a moment warming himself. “We can talk more in the morning about how to get to my boat. Let the brain rest a bit.”

“I’m good,” Mike replied, turning around again. “I do appreciate this. Not many options out there this warm and inviting.”

“Think nothing of it. My house is your house. Good night. Blankets are in the hallway closet along with a pillow or two if you need them,” Captain replied, and exited the room.

“Good night,” Mike replied, and turned back to the window. His mind still churning, trying to figure out how to get down to the boat without getting both of them killed.
