SYNOPSIS: What can humans do in a secret world where they are sorely overpowered and outmatched? How do they stand up against the things that bump in the night? The answer is simple: they cheat. And in a world of shadows where might makes right, humans must rely on their ingenuity to survive.

The hero, humanity’s champion for light and order, is dead. The Supernatural and Paranormal Defense Organization, an international covert ops agency assembled to fight against the powers of darkness, just lost their field commander against the forces of Satan. Now, their former Special Projects Director, the angelic Jayda Marie Lafayette, must spearhead the search for the hero’s killer: his brother, a newly turned and blood-thirsty vampire named Frederico. And if she doesn’t get to him first, the Devil will turn him into a weapon capable of single-handedly destroying the human world.

AUTHOR INFORMATION & LINKS

A1 When I was in 3rd grade, the other kids were trying to decide whether to be actors, racecar drivers, or astronauts. I decided that I wanted to be an author. My answer to the age-old question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” was always the same. I wanted to write books. When I wasn’t trying my hand at writing, I was watching movies. I was always trying to satisfy that primal urge: storytelling. Almost 15 years later, I decided to try to sit down and write a full-length novel for myself, just like all of the people that I idolized. Spies vs. Monsters is the culmination of a childhood’s worth of dreaming.

Now, at 25, I live in my own dream world that is conveniently packaged in one bedroom of the house that I share with my sister.

PAPERBACK

Why Spies Vs. Monsters?

By Aaron C. Richards

            The idea for my own book series came to me as these things usually do: through the observation of various works of other authors. It usually happens that while I’m looking at the work of some publicized creator, whether reading or watching, a question occurs to me. I take my viewing very seriously…perhaps overly so. I understand that there are movies that the viewer isn’t mean to over-analyze, but I can’t help myself. That tendency has only increased as I’ve gotten more serious about my own writing. And when you find a number of films or books approaching the same idea from the same direction and having the same problems, you find yourself a niche to fill. That’s where Spies Vs. Monsters came in.

There are a number of popular series out there about secret government agencies that fight monsters. The idea in itself is nothing new. But one thing that I noticed, whether they be fighting super villains, monsters, demons, or something else, the agency in question tends to have a corresponding monster of their own that does the fighting for them. They recruit similarly powered individuals to make a stand, instead of humans. It makes sense, from a brute force standpoint. If you’re not physically strong enough to take on your enemy, recruit someone who is. But the idea never sat well with me.

I never liked the idea of a “neighborhood watch” agency. The agency that presses the panic button and then waits for the real heroes to show up has always struck me as very nearly useless. As if the heroes wouldn’t notice the enormous car-throwing bully wreaking havoc in their cities. At best, the secret agents are there to escort the good monster or superhero, and they are likely to die as nothing more than glorified luggage-handlers. The mundane everymen are swept aside in favor of the far more interesting lantern-jawed supermen. They’re discouraged, even chastised, for trying to fight outside their league. Nothing for us normal folks to do when Superman shows up except pull up a chair and watch the freaks do battle. Nevermind the fact that now there are now two enormous car-throwing brutes rampaging around the city instead of just one, and they’ve found a reason to fight each other. The possibility of collateral damage is completely ignored, in favor of watching the awesome grudge match.

The idea for my own book came to me when I considered what would happen in my hometown if a hostile alien shoved his way amongst us with plans to conquer the world. If Superman showed up to defend my tiny little town and told us to stand back, he’s got this, the people here would be outraged. And every one would show up to do something, even if there was nothing they could do. Because the bottom line is this: if something is that important to you, you find a way to fight back, even if the best you can do is spit on the tyrant‘s shoes as they walk by. And Spies vs. Monsters is exactly that: humans doing the best they can to find a way to fight back.

Super powerful characters are often interesting, but only if there is a reason for them to be there. There are also characters like Batman, Iron Man, and the men from Independence Day, that had no superpowers. They just did whatever they could with what they had. Spies Vs. Monsters is a story about humans, for humans, by a human. And if the monsters have anything to say about that, they should know: humans fight dirty.

Welcome Back Author Reece Bridger on His Tour With BUAN THE PERFECT MORTALS!

BUANEBOOK

Title: BUAN: The Perfect Mortals
Author: Reece Bridger
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Length: 458 pages
Release Date: September 2014
ISBN-13: 978-1909482029
Imprint:Mythossmall

SYNOPSIS: During a ceasefire of a war that has taken more lives than could be considered just, there are shadows of betrayal and deceit lurking in the rays of the morning sun. Something is lingering on the horizon, and it’s hell-bent on destruction, despair and death.

Whatever it may be, it’s driven the Goddess to some very desperate measures.

Life for the Harmon siblings has been hard enough, but now they face responsibilities that they never asked for. They never asked for power. They never asked for a world of monsters. They never asked to come face-to-face with demons, the corrupted of their own people, or their own mortality.

But that is just what they will have to do. They are the chosen heroes of Cornelia, the final hope for order and sanity, the last line of defence against the darkness.

They are the Buan.

Author: Bob Dixon
Genre: Horror/Psychological Thriller/Dark Fantasy
Length: 308 pages
Release Date: September 2014
ISBN-13: 978-0692284537
Imprint:darkfeedsmall
SYNOPSIS: Being a teenager is tough enough,
but try it when you have schizophrenia and
psychic abilities that make all of your imaginary
friends real…

The odds are against Mouch—he’s locked up in
Talsom Mental Asylum; his only friends are a
sock puppet and his shadow. Worst of all, he
suffers from amnesia; his earliest memory is of
being found alone in a mall wearing nothing but a pair of polka-dotted boxer shorts, a pair of fluffy white bunny slippers, and a hat made from a newspaper.… and covered in a generous amount of blood. When an elderly gentleman visits him and reveals that Mouch is not crazy but is actually a psychic, Mouch does what any rational person would do—he runs for the door. Once outside of Talsom, Mouch soon finds himself thrust into a battle against a sinister movement of dark psychics who threaten to destroy the entire psychic community.
