Description:

Not all snow days are the stuff of childhood dreams!!

 

And not all school days are the stuff of childhood doldrums. You must always be careful what you wish for (or rather what you don't). Not all nightmares occur at night, as some things go "bump in the day." Join Teddy in this horror/comedy as he attempts to find reprieve from his chilling holiday woes. And by woes we are not referring to your typical "coming of age" trials of youth. This is a tale about preventing boyhood daydreams from becoming nightmares. What are the yuletide intentions of these menacing snowmen?  Or are these events born from the fanciful superstitions of a curious boy? Either way, Teddy must discern the truth as the line between fact and fiction becomes blurred.  Just remember, sometimes the phrase "Merry Christmas" is nothing short of an oxymoron. To wrap it up? Just replace Merry Christmas with Scary Christmas!

Can you stomach the Fairgrounds?

 

Based on nothing but a modern-day message in a bottle and a secret invention that can measure the ebb and flow of Karma itself, watch as three troubled strangers each takes a leap of faith to find fairness in an unfair world. But things get close and personal as a masked vigilante vows to take Karma into his own hands. But no matter what brought our band of less-than-merry men together, one thing is for certain, common enemies make for strange bedfellows!

In Book 1, get acquainted with each of our three misunderstood adventures as they independently try to make sense of a secret message embedded in a mysterious $2 bill. Who wrote the secret message, and can they be trusted? Each of our protagonists must face their inner conflicts and weigh the pros and cons of endeavoring on such a risky pilgrimage. Is it fate that guides these complete strangers towards a common destiny? Or is it simply a disaster waiting to happen, the wishful and wistful thinking wrought by the telltale imaginations of overzealous dreamers?

Based on nothing but a modern-day message in a bottle and a secret invention that can measure the ebb and flow of Karma itself, watch as three troubled strangers each takes a leap of faith to find fairness in an unfair world. But things get close and personal as a masked vigilante vows to take Karma into his own hands.

In book 2 (conclusion), join our three existential detectives at the point where they meet for the very first time at the precipice of the secret location alluded to in the mysterious message. But they will need to do more than just wax philosophical as they decide to employ their secret invention and start "Project Madcap" to study the very workings of Karma itself. Will they see beyond the Veil of the World's Great Curtain, past the Abyss, and into the very realms of the 6th dimension? Or are their ambitions too lofty, as they would be fortunate to simply get out alive? Things get more complicated when the serial killer Amrak gets involved and takes justice in his own hands. With all three beaten and broken "heroes" in one place and time, let's just hope the whole is greater than the sum of its parts!
