Passing Time by Ellie Garratt

Hey gang! I'm unbelievably excited to share the cover of the upcoming release of one of my favorite author-bloggers. Not only is the cover gorgeous, but the stories sound outrageously creepy and cool.

Hope you'll put Passing Time on your calendar, and check out Ellie too, if you don't already know her. She's truly a fantastic blogger and a gifted writer.

Passing Time: Nine Short Tales of the Strange and Macabre

Nine dark fiction stories that may just give you nightmares.

A man lives to regret Passing Time. A father will do anything to save his son in Expiration Date. An author finds out her worst nightmare is back in The Devil’s Song. A woman gets more than the claim fee when she takes out vampire insurance in Luna Black. 

In Dining in Hell, the Death Valley Diner becomes the wrong place to stop. 

A serial killer wants to add another file to his collection in The Vegas Screamer. In Eating Mr. Bone, an undertaker could meet an unfortunate end. A con man meets his first ghost in Land of the Free. And will truth finally be set free in The Letter? 

Publication date: 11th February 2013
