City on the Edge of Tomorrow by Derek Elkins------------

How far would you go to save your son? An autistic boy is taken in the middle of the night by something made from blackness that drags him into the attic and through a portal to a different world. His father is not two steps behind, struggling through an alien landscape where every thought, every whim can be turned into reality. As he searches desperately for his son, he faces an enemy intent on stopping him no matter the cost: an enemy capable of changing his appearance, an enemy who is always one step ahead, an enemy who can turn the very light into darkness.
Among Wolves by Derek Elkins

Among Wolves by Derek Elkins

Among Wolves by Derek Elkins------------

A man, lost in the forest during a rainstorm, finds his way to a cabin in the woods. But are the people in the cabin truly what they seem? And what secrets lie hidden within the lost traveler? When nothing and no one is as they seem, who is trapped as a wolf among wolves? Beneath the surface, the wolf roams.
Deranged Love by Derek Elkins

Deranged Love by Derek Elkins

Deranged Love by Derek Elkins------------

Love is a many splendored thing. It's big and splendored and covered with warts and all kinds of stuff, like emotions and big fluffy hair, like the kind you saw in the Eighties or whatever. For a single price, you get not one, not two but four stories about this crazy little thing called Love. You get the best-selling (at least in the author's mind) story of love, betrayal, and a complete absence of mustaches that is known as "Amish Love Story". In addition, you'll also get that tale of frontier and western glory that is "Prairie Romance". Also thrown in is the story of love in the time of mistletoes, stockings and strange elven creatures known as "A Merry Cliché for Christmas". As a bonus, or incentive or possible bribe, I am also offering a brand new romance, in the same vein as Twilight, Harry Potter and Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, comes a new tale of Supernatural Love between a mortal woman and a creature of the other world, a creature of shadows, a creature that is really bony, dresses like a hobo and smells funky. Yes, it's a "Supernatural Love Story". The story of Audrey and her love for the Boogeyman. Truly a timeless love story or at least a story that can't be timed with a normal watch.

Shuffling around waiting for the living to fall in your hands is for the birds. The real up and coming zombies these days have an advantage because they've learned to embrace technology.

Prairie Romance by Derek Elkins

------------

This is a parody of prairie romances. I've only included the first chapter because I don't want to write another one unless someone really wants me to. I don't mind because they amuse me, but if you want more of the same, you'll need to let me know through Amazon or, better yet, through Bardandbook.com. Jolene, who just lost her father, is being pressured by the Mayor to either sell him the dirt farm or marry him. After rejecting the Mayor's advances, she is saved at the last minute by the handsome stranger known as Hank.

------------ Author's Notes

This is my fourth parody and I'm starting to wonder if these are doing any well or I should move on to stranger pastures. I like writing the parodies, but I have other things I'm working on as well. Oh well, here is a parody of prairie romances I came up with after reading an article that sais that most Christians that read fiction, primarily read Amish or prairie romances. I've definitely got something else in the works for February and I've got to finish the novel I'm working on as well, only five chapters left. Plus, my book Life Unworthy of Life is coming out in a few months and I'll probably pressed for time on promoting and stuff. Hey, if anyone ever wants to chat, let me know, comment on one of my stories and we'll set something up.

A Very Merry Cliché for Christmas by Derek Elkins

------------

I was watching the Hallmark Channel and found that most every Christmas movie had some serious clichés in common. I thought to myself that I could do just as well or, at the very least come up with a decent parody of the genre. So, I wrote a parody of a Christmas story. In it, we find Holly Clause, a Big City executive being called back to her small hometown because of the death of her mother. Soon, she is pairing off against the town's grinch, one O. M. Potter. The sparks and insanity begin to fly as Holy comes up with a scheme to win back Christmas from the old miser.
