Thanks for inquiring, Carl! If you like to read ebooks, please check out SECTORS. It's the start of a series I've begun. SECTORS is a dark world full of robots, werewolves , vampires, zombies, and a cannibal.

I am hoping to bring Twilight Zone type settings in the books. :)

RAISING RILEY and DARK PLACES OF REST are free to reads and I think I have included the links on my page. If you have trouble, let me know..

You can find my other books on AMAZON.COM, if you wish.

Take care,

Brick
