Excerpt :

My reverie was brought to an abrupt end by my secretary Mona, a rather apt name if ever there was one, who said sharply, “Quit daydreaming, Caper! She’s not worth it.”
Through the imaginary pale blue smoke that ceased to float up toward the damp, stained ceiling, I saw her scowling at me. Mona could be very pretty if she didn’t scowl so much. However, scowling to Mona is like Batman and crime –always battling but neither is far from the other.
“As you did not witness the fair maiden in question, any such comment should be disregarded by the jury, as it’s inadmissible in this court,” I replied, and indignantly stuck the cigar in my mouth for another fake puff. I make no apologies for these actions which I consider medium-cool without the health risks.
Mona sighed, and this was a sign that she was about to lecture me so I made a mental note to shut my ears and hide in my mind’s own version of Narnia until the wicked ordeal was over. “How many times in the last month has this happened, huh? Three or four times. And that’s in the last month! Every time an attractive woman has the misfortune to look at your sorry mug, you get all… all… weird, and then what happens?”
I was not going to answer her. I would not be pulled into her web of lies. I stopped short of putting my fingers in my ears and repeating, “Lalalalala!” Mona doesn’t favour my brand of humour.
“You’ll never see her again! Not even a fleeting glance. That thing in your trousers is not a lucky charm, sunshine!” I thought that was a matter of opinion.
“Is there a point to this or are you just testing your vocal cords?” I mumbled, my mask of Clint Eastwood cool slipping ever so slightly.
She shook her head, and although I looked away, I knew there was some eye-rolling going on there. “And it’s that sort of remark that keeps them away, Caper!”

Synopsis :

The place had a gruesome past that nobody wanted to talk about…
Camp Death is now a great place to spend the summer. Ritchie soon finds a group of outsiders like himself. Teenagers who ignore the organised activities, and bunk off in the old abandoned cabins deep in the woods. The cabins that have a history.
The campfire monster stories were meant to just scare them. Nobody expected them to come true. Then one of the teenagers disappears in the middle of the night.
Something is watching them. It hides in the woods and hunts at night.
Ritchie will have to uncover the secrets of the camp and understand his own problems in order to survive.
Camp Death is Book 1 in a new series brought to you by Question Mark Horror. For fans of Point Horror, Christopher Pike & Nicholas Pine.

Excerpt :

“Where is…” Ritchie was about to say Toby when there, half exposed behind another large rock were some legs. On the ground the soil looked darker. It looked like blood, not that they could know for sure.
“Umph!” Claire made a sound through hands she’d clamped over her mouth just in time.
“Shit!” Ritchie exclaimed. She had been right. There was no way Claire could’ve done something like that, was there? She was so slight of build she couldn’t overpower someone tall and athletic like Toby. Unless she’d distracted him somehow.
“Should we look at the body?” She said, but her breathing became erratic. She didn’t want to.
“You stay here,” Ritchie said. “No sense in both of us having to see it.” Claire went to disagree but gave up. This wasn’t a time to fight for equality. She didn’t want to see it.
Ritchie walked over. With each step more of the body was uncovered until he recognised the clothing. There was blood on the upper torso and all over the face. So much blood. He didn’t need to see anymore. Quickly he retreated away.
“It’s him,” he said and took a deep breath. Suddenly all he could smell and taste was metallic, like blood mixed with what he could only describe as death.
“We should go,” she said, but then as the beam from Ritchie’s phone scanned around, she saw something.
“Stop,” she said. “There’s a door!”
“What?” he turned the phone back. Amongst the wall of rock was a perfectly framed door. A door that was opened.
And that’s when they saw it. Fur. Brown and animal like.
They were not alone.
