Halloween Sale

Halloween is here, and for a limited time my Jack Kilborn Trilogy is only $2.99 on Amazon Kindle.

Three terrifying books for three bucks.



It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal.

Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.

But Martin didn't come back. And neither did Sara when she went in search of him.

Then the laughter stopped.


The group soon began to realize that this deserted island wasn't so deserted after all. And perhaps Martin's ridiculous story had more truth to it than anyone thought.

What's the most horrifying thing you can imagine?

This is a hundred times worse...

TRAPPED by Jack Kilborn
It starts where other horror ends



The bed and breakfast was hidden in the hills of West Virginia. Wary guests wondered how it could stay in business at such a creepy, remote location. Especially with its bizarre, presidential decor and eccentric proprietor.


When the event hotel for the national Iron Woman triathlon accidentally overbooked, competitor Maria was forced to stay at the Rushmore. But after checking into her room, she quickly realized she wasn't alone. First her suitcase wasn't where she put it. Then her cell phone was moved. Finally, she heard an odd creaking under the bed. Confusion quickly turned to fear, and fear to hysteria when she discovered the front door was barred and the windows were bricked over. There was no way out.


One year later, four new female athletes have become guests of the Inn. Will they escape the horrors within its walls? Or will they join the many others who have died there, in ways too terrible to imagine?

ENDURANCE by Jack Kilborn
Are you brave enough to finish?



Nestled in the woods of Wisconsin, Safe Haven is miles from everything. With one road in and out, this is a town so peaceful it has never needed a full-time police force. Until now...

A helicopter has crashed on the outskirts of town and something terrible has been unleashed. A classified secret weapon programmed to kill anything that stands in its way. Now it's headed for the nearest lights to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate.

Soon all phone lines are dead and the road is blocked. Safe Haven's only chance for survival rests on the shoulders of an aging county sheriff. And as the body count rises, the sheriff realizes something even more terrifying - maybe death hasn't come to his little town by accident...


AFRAID by Jack Kilborn
Are you afraid of the dark? You will be

Thanks Joe. I already had "Afraid", but at this price and with the other two books I'm getting, I thought, what the hell, and bought it.

By the way, will you ever write an article on finding ones voice in a story and/or some pointers on the craft of writing from your point of view? Your style of writing is unique and I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. I imagine some of your other visitors might be interested in this, too.

Yeah, I'm in for this, if for no other reason than all the helpful tips I've found on this blog.

Also, I was looking for some light reading.

This is an awesome deal, so I blogged and tweeted it! I read Afraid and Trapped, and Endurance is next on my list. Anyone who reads one will want to read them all, so this is an excellent deal!!!

I downloaded and read Afraid and Endurance back when I was first discovering the Guru and his contrarian brilliance. Both are fast and fun. Endurance reads like a Texas Chainsaw/Hills Have Eyes/evil clan flick put to paper. The Ironman references are hilarious, too. Afraid is page after page of non-stop heart-pumping action bleak violence. Pick `em up,

Love the cover! Love the price! Can't read Jack Kilborn! Scares the crap out of me and I read Bentley Little and John Saul.

Have the guest posts ended? Some were great, but we're glad to hear your voice again.

Hey Joe - I caught my thirteen year old daughter reading your novel, Afraid on her Kindle. She said it was well cool.
