Bullies Inc.
The Book Your Parents Don't Want You to Read
By Steve DiMarco
"I was surrounded by their hate, their brutalities against those different, those weaker. I bore witness to their daily PDA's - Public Displays of Affliction. And what were the adults, our supposed guardians doing about the situation? Zero, zilch, absolutely nothing. I could no longer stand by and watch these Bully terrorisms continue unpunished!"

Thus begins this wicked, dark comedy; our teen protagonist setting out to rectify these wrongs by recruiting others to take part in retribution against the culprits. This is the story of BULLIES INC.

"Bullies Inc. is a gripping emotional thriller that, once read, sets you off on a quest to find others who've read it because an experience this bold can not be kept to yourself."

- Thom Ernst, Film Critic and Producer/Host, Saturday Night at the Movies

The Vampires of Juarez
By Alan Scarfe
An eccentric English journalist is in El Paso. One morning at dawn he wades across the Rio Grande while filming a white Siberian tiger that has come to the
river to drink. He is kidnapped in Juarez by the tiger's owner, a drug lord who forces him to impersonate a mysterious go-between in exchange for his life.


"Fast-moving, eloquent, funny and at the same time profoundly violent and distressing . . irony saves it from insupportable sadness and instead creates a fresh and captivating story. Another terrific novel from Alan Scarfe." 
- Susanna Raule, Cut-up

"Scarfe's vampires are nothing like the classic literary and cinematic archetypes. They are neither romantic nor troubled spirits. They are pitiless, arrogant and vulgar, without immortality and unafraid of the sun." 
- Vito Tripi, Word Shelter

The Revelation of Jack the Ripper
By Alan Scarfe
How could a perfectly normal, upper-middle-class father and reasonably successful man become the Whitechapel fiend? Why did the carnage begin and why did it stop? Written in Jack's confessional voice, Alan Scarfe's break out novel is both thought provoking and disturbing as it delves deep into the mind of Jack The Ripper. 
  
"Amongst the finest books on historical crime ever published. I shall read it again and again."
- Christopher Berry-Dee, editor, The New Criminologist
  
"I confess to having been a murderer only twice in my lifetime. First when Dostoevsky allowed me into the mind of Raskolnikov. Second when Alan Scarfe allowed me into the mind of Jack the Ripper. A candidate for one of the best murder mysteries ever!"
- Warren Allen Smith, author of Who's Who in Hell

"One is continually nodding, 'Yes, that's how it must have happened!'"
- Christopher Michael di Grazia, Ripper Notes

They Don't Run Red Trains Anymore
​By Heidi von Palleske
A model walks into a life drawing class and changes the life of a young artist forever. For the first time she understands inspiration, obsession and love. But it comes at a great cost...

"The writing is superior. Not a cliché anywhere. So intelligent in every observation, so much insight in every reflection."

 - Helen Weinzweig, author of Basic Black With Pearls

"Sex, suicide and the nature of art. This is a learned and interesting muse of the nature of art, but grounded with the narrator. Evocative images.

A successful and ambitious piece of work"
   - Writers' Federation Of Nova Scotia


"Wow, what a book! Strange dichotomy. Exciting, it jumps out!"
     - James Bacque, author of Other Losses
