Jonah Gibson grew up in a one stoplight town in Western Ohio. Nestled among soy bean fields and overrun with turkey flocks, it had six churches, six taverns, and six gas stations. Jonah got his moral sensibilities in one of the churches, and developed his quirky lens for social observation in the taverns—all six of ’em. Then he gassed up and left town. There are those who think he had to leave town, but there is no real evidence to support this theory. He still looks back fondly.
Jonah currently resides on Florida’s Treasure Coast with his wife and a retired racing greyhound named Bean. He writes mostly comedic thrillers, posts funny blog entries, and tries generally to escape the ‘slings and arrows of outrageous fortune’ with as many naps as Bean will allow.

I recently authored two books: Dream Wrecks and East of the Out-Lands. Dream Wrecks is about a troubled artist who disappears while painting on the cliffs of Malibu and ends up in a maelstrom of international crime and intrigue. East of the Out-Lands takes us to twentieth-third-century Southern California where oppressed desert dwellers struggle for survival against a brutal coastal dictatorship.
BJ Hyman was born in Nashville, TN to Joe and Betty Story (yes, her maiden name is Betty Jo Story…how’s that for someone born to write?).
She was first published as the winner of a poetry contest in her local paper in Effingham, IL at the age of 10 and the writing bug never left her. Since then she has had poetry and one short story published in varying anthologies.
She got a B.A. in Theater and studied Music in college because the arts and storytelling have always called to her. She worked in television and radio for over 7 years before spending another 7 as a school teacher of Music and Theater.
She’s written 5 full-length screenplays, one play, and over 25 hour long episodic scripts for television. Day Zero was her first novel.
She currently lives in Columbus, MS with her Commercial Producer husband, Jim, two loving dogs (Wrigley and Sunny) and a 19 year old turtle named Melville.

Drip: A Gothic Bromance
“A hand wearing a fancy watch parted the office blinds, and J.D. felt nauseous with despair: suddenly he knew—even though he could not explain how—that all of his mojo had been permanently taken away.”
J.D. and George: thick as thieves since the fourth grade. J.D., the troublemaker, the stud: the alpha. George, the sidekick, the misfit: the loser. Upon graduating college, J.D. has convinced the only job creator in rusty Middlestop to hire them. BrewCorp, the hot new coffee and retail chain, is offering a vice presidency to the employee with the boldest plan for growth, and J.D. is determined to be the guy. When not sleeping with co-workers, he hatches his pitch for a one-of-a kind data pipeline. He is unbeatable–until George grabs the promotion. Now J.D. wants answers. His quest to find them—and to deal with the monstrous truth—is the subject of indie filmmaker Andrew Montlack’s wry debut novel, which features the same biting satire that made his mockumentary, The Devil’s Filmmaker, a cult classic.
Gideon–a body thief whom Shane thought she had eliminated–escapes from his prison and seeks out the young woman who put him there.
Distressed by his reemergence, Shane, reticent heir to Gideon’s stewardship, seeks to avoid him. Then an angel shows up, asking after the Purging, a plague that eradicated most supernatural beings nearly a century prior. Shortly thereafter, a powerful flu strikes the impervious Shane. Gideon realizes the Purging is back to finish the daemons, taking with it many humans as collateral damage. However, Shane wants nothing to do with him, instead trying to ferret out her own via research, a Heavenly weapon, an alternative rock band, and a trip through Gideon’s heinous past.
Hi, I’m Tim Rees. My background is BBC drama and before that the military. You can read about my life in the army in my memoir, In Sights: The Story Of A Welsh Guardsman, published by The History Press in 2013.
I left the BBC to focus on writing my own scripts and ended up writing the novel first so my story is set firmly on the page – my experience with the BBC taught me scripts are rewritten and change from the original script due to budgets, director’s idea’s and perspectives and then the actors come in with their own ideas on the character they’re playing. Making a film is an intensely creative process and it is a process I love, but after finishing my first novel, which is Raw Nerve, I knew I’d been born to be a novelist first and foremost, mainly because the creative intensity is doubled and my relationship with the characters is so much more real than working on a script where it’s necessary to leave it to the director and actors to flesh-out character.
I realised indie publishing is now at a professional standard and want to be a part of this new revolution. So now I’ve recently republished Raw Nerve to add to Delphian and WTF.
I love the concept behind Diabolic Shrimp! Thanks to Joshua Grant for being a visionary and creating this avenue to give authors a voice and a new forum. I’m looking forward to this new chapter in my journey and I’m looking equally as forward to growing and networking with everyone!
Max E. Stone
The well-meaning and meddlesome Mr. and Mrs. Aden want nothing more than to protect their only daughter, Hannah.
After her childhood kidnapping in Somalia and a final showdown in Italy against the monster responsible, nineteen-year-old Hannah just wants back the life stolen from her.
She isn’t naïve like her mother believes. Frequent flashes of past terrors assure her that the healing process is far from over. At the same time, she’d hardly use her dad’s words and call herself “strong” or “brave.” That description belongs to Melissa Bennett, the woman who almost died saving her.
Melissa doesn’t feel much like the hero she’s being hailed.
While she is glad to have saved a life for once, the one she’d almost taken continues to haunt her dreams and stall her recovery.
Despite her good deed and continuous help from friends and family abroad and Kyle—the father of her little girl—she knows her days of freedom are numbered.
