Seventh Star Press is proud to welcome Brick Marlin to its author family with a fascinating horror/cross-genre series of three books titled Transitional Delusions!
The first book of the series, Transitional Delusions, introduces readers to the small town of Woodbury, which wears a dark shroud, a past in which speaks of a stranger who once called himself the Pied Piper ridding out a rat infestation long ago. Executed by the king, a selfish tyrant, who could not fathom the thought of another stealing his spotlight, the Piper swore vengeance.
Tonight, decades later, the shadow out of the sky, the evil entity of the Pied Piper returns. It cleaves into the flesh of each and every child, possessing them, using them as puppets, moving their strings, making them not only slaughter their parents, but each and every adult.
And the horror does not cease there; a living, breathing terror that spreads into the next town of Hampshire, leaving Woodbury a crimson stain on the map. Repeating the same dread, the entity swoops down, opens up fresh wounds, invading the population and, of course, snatching up the children as his followers.
Dean, Wendy, and her husband Shro, as well as a few others including a Christian woman named Martha who has joined their group, embark on this dreaded tale of survival as they shove their way through this story fighting not only the possessed children, still chasing them at full throttle.
With the Lord in her heart, a reloaded shotgun resting in her arms, Martha decides to go after the shadow out of the sky and its followers…
Other titles in the Transitional Delusions series are: Westersphere and Slader Corp. The first book will be released in Summer of 2014, with subsequent titles at the end of 2014 and early 2015. The books will be released in trade paperback and all eBook formats.
"I wanted to work with SSP because I truly believe they are one of the very best small presses out there, lead by an owner who goes out of the way to promote and work extremely hard for authors," Brick said about coming aboard the press.
