First Book Project

I have joined the indie authors First Book Project, a non-profit organization that provides access to new books for children of low-income families. I have dropped the Kindle price of my collection, Servants of Darkness to .99. If the book makes it into Amazon’s top 100 I will donate $500.00 to First Book Project. For those who have not read my stuff, please give it a try and help out a good cause. It’s only .99 cents and I promise you’ll get hours of enjoyable reading. I hope you help me reach this goal.

Here’s a description of the book along with some reviews:

A chance meeting at a cathedral's demolition site between a suffering young woman and a stranger morphs from unsettling to terrifying when you discover the stranger's identity. He is simultaneously more and less than he appears.

An injured man lost in the wilderness is haunted by a demon that he might or might not recognize from his past.

Is John Lennon still alive? Deb Stiles thinks so, and when she convinces a young reporter to investigate, nothing in their lives will ever be the same again.

From there you are taken on a dark journey through a skewed world where nothing, not even a lowly can of bug spray, can ever be considered harmless or innocent.

"Mark Edward Hall writes like a master. Stephen King, yes, but also like Stoker, Poe, and Bradbury, yeah, even Shakespeare...all those good guys we've forgotten. He's literate and intelligent and poetic, and compliments the reader's intelligence. His prose is hypnotic and seductive, it’s also visceral, and edgy - you feel your heartbeat change. You question what sanity is. And madness. There are millions of suspense/horror chillers out there. But this author is also literary, he's the real thing.” —Kiana Davenport, award winning author of House of Skin and Shark Dialogues.

“Hall has an uncanny knack for blending vivid, almost poetic prose with visceral images of jaw-dropping horror to great effect.” —Bram Stoker award winning editor, Vince Liaguno.

“Poetic and eerily seductive, Hall pushes you to the edge, until you get lost in the beautiful madness of his creations.” —Midwest Book Review

“Mark Edward Hall is a literary artist, a strong new voice in the horror genre.” —Lloyd F. Richey, Stormdragon

"Hall is an insightful author with the ability to craft a brilliant story.” —Dream Forge
