Introducing A.C. Davis!


A.C. Davis

A.C. Davis has spent most of her years examining the dark folds and crevices of humanity. She's a people watcher who creates a fictional bio for everyone she watches or meets. She once met a man who was responsible for slaughtering over fifty women nearly two-hundred years ago. Of course his body has long ago rotted away, but his essence never caught on.

Some people she has watched have disturbing secrets they buried so deep in hopes of being forgotten forever. But A.C. Davis sees them and she writes them down to share in novella format for all to enjoy, to think about, become frightened, horrified, aroused, and even entertained by for just a few moments in time.

Available on Amazon:

Jenny's Blue Velvet
by A.C. Davis


Jenny's stuck.

She's tried just about every occupation she can think of and will be digging out of student debt for a very long time, but has nothing to show for it. Her everyday routine feels like a prison. And her marriage? Well, let's just say it's been a little one-sided lately and the money she threw down on the toys from Lover's Erotic Store was well worth it and then some.

Jenny decides her next big step is to become a romance writer. Romance books are flying off the virtual shelves, after all. This will be her big break, her escape from the prison, and a way to freedom. Self-publishing is all the rage these days. She'll be a best seller in no time.

When Jenny makes friends with a woman named Cassandra from the gym, she instantly decides that her new friend will make a perfect main character in her upcoming book. After the first chapter, real life begins to resemble the fiction she's writing. Her friendship blossoms, sex with her husband turns into a daily feast, and her job gets more interesting with each chapter written.

Out of the blue, a person who is a close friend with her husband and who is dating Cassandra disappears. As the mystery behind the missing person unfolds, Jenny wonders if she might be responsible for his possible death. And if she is, what will be the consequence? What has this writing business gotten her into?

JENNY'S BLUE VELVET, a novella, is a psychological thriller for adults only due to sexual content.

Still Nights
by A.C. Davis

Sammy's lost.

She's looking for a way out of the dark pit she's swimming in. A former police officer, she spends her days sitting on the couch and nights sleeping with her old partner turned friend with benefits. She shot a kid while on duty. It wasn't intentional. He threatened her and she panicked. But that one mistake won't stop haunting her. It's destroyed her life, if that's what you'd call the daily routine she lived before that unfortunate event.

Sammy has never seen a ghost even though her estranged husband is the famous Walker the Ghost Stalker, ghost hunter extraordinaire. She used to want so desperately to experience what her husband and friends call a supernatural thrill, but that desire ended when her life fell apart. The only reason she continues going on investigations is to spend time with her husband.

One night, Sammy receives a worrisome call. She rushes out in a raging storm to locate her husband and friends. What she finds instead would scare the shit out of anyone. And she regrets ever going on that last paranormal investigation. What has this ghost hunting crap gotten her into anyway?

Fan of American Horror Story? You'll enjoy the novella Still Nights, a horrific paranormal thriller for adults only.

4 Reasons Why Tony Graff Loves Participating in NaNoWriMo

4 Reasons why I love everyone participating in NaNoWriMo
(A guest post by author, Tony Graff)

            It's that time of year again, and once again my wife has kissed me on the top of my head and told me she'd see me in a month. That's right, it November, which means it's National Novel Writer's Month. Where the literary have a planned burst of insanity and creation (I've already gotten more than my daily goal completed) in the thrill run to write 50,000 words in one month. I tip my hat to each of you, and here are six reasons why:

  1. You've mastered a great fear. I have a friend who has told me a brilliant story idea about a SWAT officer who takes over for Thanatos, the Greek god of Death (Hades is the god of the Underworld, not death. He had to point that out to me). It was an absolutely fantastic idea. He had stuff written down and illustrations and research, yet he never made it to the word processor. That still bugs me do this day. How many other stories are remaining untold because of this fear? NaNoWriMo participants have to bite the bullet and write, no matter how it turns out. And that's a leap of faith. I know it was for me, and I didn't even have the help and support of fellow writers to get me on the right track.
  2. You're making a great sacrifice. How many of you are sacrificing your favorite TV show? How about video game? How many already know how many hours of sleep they're going to be losing to get this novel written? I'm waking up at 5:30 every morning just to make sure I have enough time to get my word goal and not sacrifice my grades in college for it. Everyone's looking at you crazy, but you know the sheer joy of getting that idea out there and creating that story. Will it become a NYT bestseller? Does it even matter? You did what you love, and I'll gladly raise a glass to you for that.
  3. You embrace the insanity. So you're plugging along, making headway and maybe even getting ahead. Then, out of the blue comes a thought that becomes dialogue that turns into a completely unplanned seen that is pure brilliance on paper and the moment is nigh unto sacred and only a few get to know about and only you know how enlightening that feels.
  4. You read a lot. Now, I'm just guessing on this one, but I've always heard that great writers are great readers. The two are symbiotic. You've got a long list on Goodreads of stuff you've read and the list of stuff to read is perpetually growing. Every book you've read added a few grains of thought to this moment where it all flies onto paper.
            To everyone participating this year, I salute you, and I'll see you at the other end.

Tony Graff is the author of the recently released Hallow Terrace.

My name is Kora Allred and I am an Isis. I underwent an operation that swapped fragments of my genetic code with genes from a lion. I even have the tail to prove it.

The operation is still a new technology that garners a lot of gossip and glares. There's even an organized group of Anti-Isis who are actively picketing and rallying to make the operation I had illegal. My fiancée, Garret, was never really impressed that I got the operation, or that I display it like a badge of honor.

But, here's the thing: I'm pregnant. Garret's the father. And scientists can't even tell me how my operation is going to affect my child.
