DESCRIPTION:

Kevin is an unpleasant man who loses his job.

He finds it difficult to deal with other people. He has those he considers friends, and he theoretically spends time with them, but he mostly prefers to focus on code, alcohol, and good old-fashioned cynicism.

Kevin begins having odd hallucinations. One minute he is finding comfort with a complete stranger, and the next he is in a darkened, pixelated wood. A crowd of things are gathering, yet Kevin doesn't sense danger from the creatures, just anticipation. Something is about to happen.

Before Kevin can get to the bottom of the gathering, he is thrust back into his normal life. The visions, however, do not stop. Soon the dream figures are following him into reality.

Life conspires to keep him in the small town of Deptford, longing for his first love and feeling numb inside. He isn't exactly happy with his existence, but he doesn't have much motivation to change anything. Things do begin to change, however, in strange and horrifying ways.

Author Jeffrey Koval Jr. spins a story of cynicism, introspection, and addiction. As Kevin must overcome the trials and tribulations of everyday life, he will become more and more entranced by his hallucinations. Is he crazy? Prophetic? Or something else entirely?

"Code Junkie" is the tale about an unpleasant man who loses his job.

Welcome to Deptford County.

DESCRIPTION:

Writers never really die; their stories live on, to be found again, to be told again, to scare again.

In Victorian London, a select group of writers, led by Arthur Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker and Henry James held an informal dining club, the price of entry to which was the telling of a story by each invited guest.

These are their stories, containing tales of revenant loved ones, lost cities, weird science, spectral appearances and mysteries in the fog of the old city, all told by some of the foremost writers of the day. In here you'll find Verne and Wells, Tolstoy and Checkov, Stevenson and Oliphant, Kipling, Twain, Haggard and Blavatsky alongside their hosts.

Sage Holdsworth is a gifted painter with a terrible secret. One thing Sage cannot conceal is her infatuation with the handsome and charismatic Dorian Gray. Sage creates a lifelike painting of Dorian and a small wolf pup, but there is more to the painting than meets the eye.

As Dorian unlocks his inherent darkness, a werewolf is spawned that begins killing in the streets of London. The lycanthrope turns to killing Dorian's enemies, but who is the real monster here?

Sage never imagined her passion would give birth to a vicious monster that could cost her everything.

Can Dorian and Sage save their souls? Or will the beast consume them all?

This is the first book in The Wolf of Dorian Gray series:

  • A Werewolf Spawned by the Evil of Man (Book 1)
  • Purgatoryof the Werewolf (Book 2)
  • Lupări: Werewolf Hunter (Book 3)

"Rarely does romance and revenge intersect so pleasurably and delicately, forming a dance of passion and purpose that embraces a soul search and a confrontation between choices of salvation and sin." - Midwest Book Review

"A delectable page turner. An excellent debut by Brian Ference. Full of excitement, anticipation, and rich scenery." - Pavan ★★★★★

"It has something for everyone with action, romance, and mystery." - Rachel ★★★★★

"Ference's debut puts a twist on Oscar Wilde's classic The Portrait of Dorian Gray, adding the dimension of a wild beast. The arrangement smoothly parallels the original...Victorian gentleman Dorian remains stunningly handsome after his youthful self is captured by an exceptionally talented artist in an eerily powerful painting. However, Dorian is not alone in this portrait; also depicted is a wolf cub, and after the painting is hidden away, the wolf is the one to change. A element of intense violence is added to this version, and there are some gender swaps, but the plot of a young man led astray into lusty debauchery remains the same. Passions and betrayals abound. Ference lifts some lines from Wilde's text and adds his own gift for description: 'Flowers, bright in sapphire blue and crimson reds, sang out from every corner of the ornately decorated room.'"
- Publishers Weekly

"There on my desk is the first passionate love-letter which I have ever composed in my life--and it is addressed to a dead girl."

"The wolf had begun hunting human prey. They were plentiful in the dark city streets and provided enough good meat to satiate his gnawing hunger. He was still very careful not to let any who saw him live. To do otherwise would displease the Master. He would only stalk those people that were foolish enough to walk alone in the night."

"The engorged moon hung full and low in the sky like a yellow skull. Misshapen clouds stretched across the floating orb with elongated hands and bony fingers grasping. As they neared the docks, the gas lamps grew fewer and the streets gloomier. The cobblestones blackened as they passed the deserted brickfields. Bottle-shaped kilns spat their outrage with orange tongues of fire into the cooling air. Mangy dogs snarled in hunger and wandering sea-gulls screamed their displeasure at the hansom's passage."
