Even if it meant five words, I had to write something every day. So that's what I did. For months, I wrote anywhere from a single sentence to a page a day, keeping the story fresh and moving--albeit lethargically--along. It really helped. By autumn, the wordcount had increased and I was almost back to doing it the way I used to. I finally finished the book I'd been working on for over a year. (less)

Hunters of the Damned!

Hunter Shea is no stranger to my blog. Any time he wishes to stop by, I'm more than happy to have him on. His books are some of the best out there, and I've enjoyed them all. But his newest, Tortures of the Damned, exists on a plateau that's all its own. Intense, fast-paced, and incredible, this book doesn't let up from the moment the story begins. At times I had to close the book so I could t Read more of this blog post »

Description: Twelve year old Joel Olsen loves all things devoted to horror. Movies, comics, books, and of course his true passion, special effects. Being raised by his older sister Haley after the sudden death of their parents Joel is in a world truly of his own. At the launch of summer vacation Joel finds lying bloodied and near death in his backyard a masked man that is the epitome of what he adores. A flesh and blood slasher maniac! When he invites the masked man into his home to recover from his wounds an unexpected friendship is born, but Joel quickly realizes he’s actually become involved in a true to life horror tale that he’ll be lucky to survive.

Angel Board (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated Oct 29, 2012 09:22AM
Description: Someone saved David Barker’s life, but he doesn’t know who—or what—she is. Now he’s haunted by the image of that beautiful, nebulous vision with the features of a woman and determined to find out why she appeared when he almost died. David uses an angel board in hopes of contacting her, and unfortunately for him, he succeeds. This angel has loved him all his life, guarded him and protected him. And she’ll hurt anyone who interferes with that love. David’s guardian angel is obsessive, possessive…and homicidal. Her unyielding love for him will leave a trail of grisly “accidents” and murders as she eliminates all those who want to hurt David. Or love him.
The Lurkers (excerpt) (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated Oct 25, 2012 07:38AM
Description: They’ve lived in the woods and cornfields for as long as anyone can remember. Small, humanoid creatures with sharp teeth and grasping hands. The people in what’s left of the nearby town live in fear. They’ve learned that if they let the creatures take what they want, they won’t be attacked. An uneasy peace has reigned. But no more. The leader of the creatures has decided his kind will be dormant no longer. To survive, they must kill. They will satisfy their unholy hunger with their favorite prey—humans. But some humans—females—will be kept alive in captivity…to breed.

Kristopher’s Recent Updates

“A shot of dread hit Vincent in the chest. Something was wrong. He knew it. Leanne had never been late, ever. If she knew she was going to be, she would have called him. But there had been no phone call, so that meant she wasn’t expecting to be late, which could”
Kristopher Rufty, The Night Everything Changed

“Wha…?” He couldn’t finish. His throat tightened. He felt sick inside. “It’s okay, Daddy. They’re not going to eat you or anything. Not anymore.” She lowered her hand from his chin, and shook her head as if she pitied him for his stupidity. “I didn’t expect you to understand.”
