Featured Author - Scott Nicholson

Over the past several weeks tons of books have been FREE on Amazon for a limited time.  I'm unable to keep up with the onslaught of free books being offered because a lot of them are only for a day or two.  So, keep in mind that anything I list here as free may have already run its course by the time you read this.  If you want it for free, be sure it says free before you one-click.

I'm a little late to the game on this one, so instead of featuring only one of his books, I'm going to feature Scott Nicholson as an author today.  He has been listing books for free off and on for a few weeks.  If you don't feel like searching the whole of Amazon for the huge list of his books you can go to his website to find out what is currently free.

Scott recommends keeping an eye out for freebies from J.R. Rain and Aiden James.

Dark Continents Publishing just released the paper collection Monster's Ink, with 13 of Scott Nicholson's uncollected monster, zombie, and horror stories.

For those of you out there who don't know who he is, pay attention.  Especially if you like horror/paranormal.  He's a master and scholar of the genre.

Scott emailed me the info for his new Amazon release, Chronic Fear, a little while ago and I'm just now getting around to posting.  (Sorry, Scott)


Chronic Fear is the second installment of Scott Nicholson’s chilling Fear series, which began with the harrowing Liquid Fear. The story picks up one year after the notorious Monkey House trials, from which the tiny handful of survivors have scattered in the wind. For while the unwitting human guinea pigs are still alive, the experimental drugs to which they were subjected continue to wreak havoc on their emotional stability. World-renowned neurobiologist Dr. Alexis Morgan knows first-hand the horrors of the sadistic experiment: her husband, Mark, was one its victims. As a result, he is plagued by unpredictable bouts of rage and paranoia. Dr. Morgan’s research into the drug leads her to suspect presidential candidate and U. S. Senator Daniel Burchfield of plotting to gain control of the drug for his own purposes, a power play that is sure to result in countless casualties unless she and three Monkey House survivors can outwit the shadowy figures behind the conspiracy—if they don’t lose their own sanity first.

If you're looking to start at the beginning you can start with Liquid Fear


When Roland Doyle wakes up in an unfamiliar motel room with a strange man’s wallet in his pocket and a woman’s dead body in the bathroom, he fears the worst…and that’s before he finds the vial of pills labeled "take one every 4 hrs or else." Or else what? Ten years ago, Dr. Sebastian Briggs’s clinical drug trial for a cutting-edge fear-response drug went horribly wrong — or did it? It’s true that one trial participant died and five others were left with no memory of what happened to them. But now several interested parties, including a major pharmaceutical company and an ambitious U.S. senator, are willing to back Briggs’s continued research. All he has to do is recall his five surviving "volunteers," whose addiction to a mysterious drug has left them largely at his disposal. They will do anything necessary to keep the pills coming and to stave off the creeping phobias, intense sexual impulses, and all-consuming madness that lurk on the edges of their minds. It’s easy enough for the good doctor to lure the survivors back to the remote Monkey House, where the original trials took place. But when the pills finally run out…that’s when the real show begins.
