As the blood red sun sets over the Chicago skyline, vampire writer – and real life vampire – Andrew Bloodsworth makes his way into WOLF 99.9 FM, an all-night radio station hosted by the beautiful Bella Donna, Goth queen of the airwaves.

As Bloodsworth reveals how he first became a vampire and the dark secrets and desires of the undead, listeners call in to talk to the undead writer. Most of the listeners are vampire and horror enthusiasts who are overjoyed to talk to a real life vampire, but OTTO – the Opposition To The Occult, a religious right organization – is also listening to the radio show — and they’re upset.

If that wasn’t enough, tabloid TV host Harry Winger, who features equally outrageous guests on his program, wants Bloodsworth to appear on his show. Plus, The Amazing Kreskin, the world’s foremost mentalist, has just had a premonition of imminent disaster.

What will happen next? Tune in to find out!

Author Website

When a series of man-made and natural disasters strike the USA, altruistic rock star Dante Benedick (aka “The One”) must travel back through time to rescue the world and the love of his life. He will have 168 hours to attempt to stop the suicide of Isabella Bellwood, the President’s daughter, which may alter the course of history and prevent the Great Destruction.

Whispers about Out of Time

“Let me start right off by saying that Connie Wilson presents what I call ‘matter-of-fact’ horror. She writes solid, declarative sentences rife with dark undertones. No fancy description for Connie. No sentimental musings. No soft emotionalism. Just hard-edged documentary-style storytelling. Jolting objective sentences made all the more disturbing by their cool directness. Frankly – and I consider myself well-read in the shock genre – I have never encountered a style such as she displays. Connie Wilson’s dark talent is unique, and readers will stagger away from her icy tales, stunned and groggy.” – William F. Nolan, Author of Logan’s Run and Nightworlds
