People are predictable. That’s what makes them easy to kill.

Acting out of misguided loyalty to his friends, police officer Prosper Snow is goaded into helping them perform a copycat killing, but when the real killer comes after him, it’s not only his life on the line, but his family’s too. Now if he goes to his colleagues for help, he risks being arrested for murder. If he doesn’t, he risks being killed.

Whispers about The Kult

“With The Kult, Shaun Jeffrey hits one out of the park with this creepy, character-driven thriller that starts with a jolt, stays in the fast lane, and plunges into the darkest territory of the human mind. It’s a bumpy ride through nightmare country.” – Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Patient Zero and Punisher: Naked Kill

“Jeffrey, one of horror’s rising young stars, has really hit his stride with The Kult. Part mystery, part police procedural, part horror story, it’s one thrilling ride. Jeffrey had me guessing at the killer’s identity half a dozen times, and the reveal, when it finally came, knocked me over. You don’t want to miss this one!” – Nate Kenyon, author of The Reach and The Bone Factory

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
