Ginger Nuts of Horror
Sid is trying hard to make things work. His ex has left him to raise their young daughter. He works a grueling and thankless job with people he calls friends but are really just assholes who are little less shitty to him than others. He doesn't drink or do anything really but work and take care of his kid, oh and pine for the bartender chick he sort of dated once. Typical young man's dream, right?
Well, this all changes when the demons pay him a visit. They fill him in on his supreme destiny and it's a doozy. That's when Sid's life really swerves. When he discovers that the people he's surrounded himself with his entire life are not what they seem, in fact the whole world is nothing but a skewed reflection of what he's always perceived. With a stringent time limit and a lot heaped on his plate, Sid embarks on a fast-paced adventure to save the world, or at the very least his own skin and those of his loved ones before the seriously satanic shit hits the fan.
With a steady hand, Wes Southard holds a mirror up to our world so we can see that it's become nearly impossible to tell who the monsters are--the faces all looks the same, the masks are all blank. The Betrayed is a fiery cocktail that takes a shot of Matheson's I Am Legend and a finger or two of Kevin Smith's Dogma and sets the world on fire with the drop of a match. It's a pulp-fueled race against time that's is a lot of fun. Evil fun.
The Betrayed is available via Amazon or contacting the author.
How well do you know the people around you? Your neighbors? Your coworkers? Friends? Family? Sidney Jameson, a young single father just trying to make ends meet, is being followed. They keep to the shadows, quiet and cloaked in dirty brown robes...and they're getting closer. And what they have to tell Sidney is something terrible. Something he never knew about his past. Something he didn't want to know about his future. The war between Heaven and Hell is the world's oldest story. Lucifer turned his back on Heaven, and God eternally cast him and his faithful to the fiery depths of Hell. Everyone knows the take...or do we? There's only a few hours left before his twenty-fifth birthday, and with the aide of The Dark One Himself, Sidney will discover his place in the battle for humanity, and how only he can stop it once and for all. There's only one problem. The rest of the world is trying to stop him. "Chocked full of blood, brimstone, and genuine heart." - Mike Lombardo, writer and director of The Stall and I'm Dreaming of a White Doomsday
