Hello, my Freaky Darlings!
Congratulations! You survived another week of whatever the fuck is going on in the world at the moment. And to help you get through yet another week of global insanity, I have some dark and twisted reads for you.
First up, I have some crime and punishment for you. This promo ends on the 4th of August. There are over 20 authors of the thriller variety participating in this one, so there should be something to thrill you. Just click this link or the image below and pick your poison.
Secondly, but certainly not least, may I present The Gulp by the fabulous Alan Baxter.
Strange things happen in The Gulp. The residents have grown used to it.
The isolated Australian harbour town of Gulpepper is not like other places. Some maps don’t even show it. And only outsiders use the full name. Everyone who lives there calls it The Gulp. The place has a habit of swallowing people.
A truck driver thinks the stories about The Gulp are made up to scare him. Until he gets there.
Teenage siblings try to cover up the death of their mother, but their plans go drastically awry.
A rock band invite four backpackers to a party at their house, where things get dangerously out of hand.
A young man loses a drug shipment and his boss gives him 48 hours to make good on his mistake.
Under the blinking eye of the old lighthouse, a rock fisher makes the strangest catch of his life.
Five novellas. Five descents into darkness. Welcome to The Gulp, where nothing is as it seems.

That’s it for this week. As always, happy reading, and thank you for being a Freaky Darling!
