Fran Dorf Announces New Release

Saving ElijahAuthor Fran Dorf is pleased to announce the release of her drama, Saving Elijah.

Part ghost story, part family drama, and part psychological thriller, Saving Elijah tells the story of Dinah Galligan, who while keeping a desperate vigil over her comatose son, Elijah, meets the mysterious Seth Lucien in the corridor outside the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. A vain, outrageous spirit with a surprising connection to Dinah’s troubled past, and a master seducer’s awareness of her secret fears and regrets, Seth claims to know the future and tempts Dinah with a Faustian bargain: her son’s life for the use of her body. What mother wouldn’t willingly accept the trade?

Originally published in hardcover by G.P. Putnam & Sons, Saving Elijah was released in eBook in July 2012 by Fran Dorf’s Evolution Press. It is available for Kindle through, and Amazon UK.

“Like the best ghost stories, Saving Elijah is chilling to read, yet it’s impossible not to go on.” – Wall Street Journal

Book Brief: Sin

by Shaun Allan
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Thriller
105,000 words
Dead, dead, dead. Say it enough times and it becomes just another word.

What would you do? Could you kill a killer? Does the death of one appease the deaths of a hundred? What about that hundred against a thousand?

What if you had no choice?

Meet Sin. No, not that sort of sin, but Sin, crazy as a loon (you ask Sister Moon), and proud of it. Sin locks himself away in an asylum and, every so often, gets violent. That’s only so they’ll give him those nice drugs, though. The ones that help him forget.

It’s a pity they don’t work.

Sin, you see, has a serious problem. Well, it’s not so much his problem, as ours – yours, mine and everyone else’s. People die around Sin. He doesn’t like it and there’s nothing he can do about it. But someone else knows, and Sin has to stop them… and himself…

Flip and catch…
