THE NINTH CURSE
"If you like fast-paced paranormal romances heavy on the magic, you'll enjoy Gillenwater's The Ninth Curse" - Water Lily, Long and Short Reviews
"...a gripping and spine-tingling paranormal romance." - Christina, Romance Junkies
His blood for a cure. It's a cruel and deadly bargain…
Nine curses. Nine weeks to live. Joel Hatcher has inherited more than a family legacy. It’s a time bomb that’s ticking down to the inevitable: his own death. But the curse won’t die with him. Unless he can find a way to break the cycle, his younger brother becomes the next victim. In the throes of the third curse, the Painful Pox, Joel makes a last-ditch decision to seek the help of a young spiritualist.
One look into Joel’s suffering eyes, and “Madame Eugenie” finds herself torn between doing the right thing, and fulfilling her most secret wish—bring her husband Adam back from the dead. Joel’s cursed blood is the missing ingredient in her resurrection rituals, and Adam’s spirit whispers seductively that there’s only one way to get it: steal it. As Gen and Joel unearth his family’s past to track down a cure, they come closer to each other, and to a horrible truth. To live, Joel must lose everything. Including the woman he has grown to love.
THE LITTLE BLACK BOX
After the suspicious suicides of several student test subjects, Paula Crenshaw, research assistant and budding telekinetic in Paranormal Sciences at Blackridge University, suspects they may be connected to a little black box designed to read auras. Professor Jonas Pritchard, the head of the department, doesn't believe his precious experiment could be causing students to drop like flies.
But when her best friend almost dies after her encounter with the black box, Paula is certain there is a connection. She pulls her cute, but sloppy, office buddy, Will Littlejohn, into the mystery, and they get closer to the truth behind who might be financially backing the project and why. Haunted by memories of a childhood accident, which she believes she caused with her untamed psychic abilities, Paula finds herself lured to the black box and its mysteries.
A science fiction short story collection of three flash fiction works.
Skyfall. A miner confronts a devastating future.
Time Travel. A failed engineer tinkers with a matter-energy transporter, which he plans to step into for the first time.
Torch. A man attempts to escape from a futuristic prison.
