What if I told you that the creatures from Lovecraft’s stories are real?

Creatures from another realm, woven into stories at a time where such revelations of truth would have seen Lovecraft locked away in an asylum. To the mere mortal his work is a collection of fiction, but what about the reader, the one who can see beyond the tales and can see these creatures amongst us? That one is the Chosen One.

The one who can release Cthulhu from the depths of the ocean.

What would you do as the Chosen One? Would you open the world to Cthulhu, thus condemning all to death, or would you sacrifice yourself to save humanity?

I was chosen, and now I must decide.

I do not have much time…

13 Victims – Launches 30th March 2021

V.A. Vazquez: My husband loves to speculate about the day-to-day lives of henchmen in action films. Like when they go home for dinner at night, do they have to explain to their spouses that Mr. Big Baddie spent a billion dollars on a laser gun instead of making a larger contribution to their 401(k)s? When it’s Career Day at school, how do they explain their profession to a group of fidgety four-year-olds? Do we see so many British henchmen because they don’t need private medical insurance through their employers? So when I was asked to write a story for 13 Victims, I decided I wanted to write about two low-level drones who get caught up in trouble that’s way above their pay grade.

This is an industry of rejection and to be successful, an author needs to be able to never throw in the towel, no matter the hard road ahead of them.

The Rise of the Great Old One by Jasmine Jarvis – Launches 31st October 2020

The idea for The Rise of the Great Old One came about one afternoon – my kids and I had been listening to the recordings of unexplained sounds from the depths of the ocean (check it out – there are some really creepy ones!). We then began to talk about Cthulhu and what if the creatures Lovecraft wrote about in his stories actually exist here and now; and that he saw them and knew we were going to be wiped out, but he couldn’t say outright “hey guys, don’t want to alarm you but have you seen these monsters?
