Bargain eBooks #193:

Half-Inch by McCarty Griffin

Price: $2.99

Where to Get It:

Smashwords (all eBook formats)

Pammy has had enough of Bobby, her abusive drunk of a husband. One lovely spring day, she decides to kill him, despite the fact that they will soon be divorced and he will, at least in the eyes of the law, be out of her life for good. Indulging in homicidal daydreams for years has led her to devise her own perfect and completely bizarre plan.

What they're saying about it:

"Half Inch by McCarty Griffin is a short novella of a marriage gone terribly wrong. But, it's Bobby's deficit personality, his abusive nature, his lack of human capacity for true emotion that drives Pammy to the point of breaking psychologically. That's when her inner voice takes over, driving Pammy to make plans and come up with contingencies to remove Bobby permanently from her life. And, to her inner voice's delight, it's about time."--Smashwords Reveiwer

"This particular line from Half-Inch sets you up for the enthralling pages you will become immersed in. Pammy is a woman on the edge; she may just take a leap that many wouldn’t dare to even attempt. I found myself glued to every word and thought Pammy had or felt as if this was a true life situation. In fact, is feels as though the plot was pulled from a nightly news broadcast. As a lover of horror and crime dramas, this is right up my alley and I would love, yes, love to see this amazing short story become a full length novel. In 67 pages, I was truly amazed at the quality, depth, and extreme emotion it contained. If you haven’t had a chance to read this fabulous story, you should."--Smashwords Reviewer

Monster Story by McCarty Griffin

Genre: Urban Fantasy, Horror

Price: $4.99

Where to Get It:

Smashwords (all eBook formats)

Christy McCauley has returned to West Virginia at last, but her homecoming quickly turns into a surreal nightmare. In the deep hollows and woods of rural Augusta County, something unspeakable is slaughtering people in the dark of night. Authorities don't know if its human or animal, or how to stop it. Christy and her friends only know they must hunt it and destroy it, before it kills again.

What they're saying about it:

"I liked that McCarty went the route not often taken. Because this isn’t a werewolf story to me, it is exactly as the title states: a monster story. The “were” is just as feral and horrifying as the “wolf”. In some ways more, because as humans, I think we have a hard time seeing anything that looks like “us” as monsters and Christy and friends spend a lot of time wondering about the moral ramifications of dealing with what they are dealing with because of that."--Smashwords Reviewer

"McCarty Griffin is the new alpha in the werewolf pack and she has the story to prove it."--Smashwords Reviewer
