Day 10 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – J. D. Brink

About J. D.

J.D. Brink was not a private detective in the 1940s, but he’d like to have been.

Instead he was born in the 1970s, was a kid at the best time ever to be a kid (the ‘80s), and went to college in the ‘90s. Since then he’s become a sailor, spy, nurse, and officer in the U.S. Navy, as well as a gravedigger, insurance adjuster, and school teacher.

Today (Halloween, 2019) he and his family have returned to his native Ohio, where there aren’t enough cheating husbands, missing persons, practicing witches, or hard-boiled mysteries to keep him occupied.

His fictional adventures take place in the Identity Crisis superhero universe, Endless Dark sci-fi universe, and Thunderstrike Sage fantasy realm, to name a few

Synopsis for Mime

Crime-noir meets ghost-horror in this short thriller. 

Mobster thugs Pauli and Mouse come across a street clown late at night who seems to know more than he’s telling. Maybe too much. 

But you know the best thing about killing a mime? No one hears him scream. 

Then again, by the time this story is over, it won’t be him screaming.

Review for Mine

I love a good short story. Especially something creepy as Mime. The way the story was written, you can really see play in your head like a movie. You have the typical bad guys who think they are tough and scary enough to get their ways. Then you have a mime, an innocent looking mime, who ends up being the complete opposite. I was dying when he was showing that he is not scared at all, and took on these two guys. Again, if you like short creepy stories, this one did not let me down, and I am sure it won’t for you.

About Dark Mistress Aurora

“I’m not a psychic and I’m not a police officer. I do not claim to be special or chosen in any way. I’m just an ordinary woman. For all you know, I could be your next door neighbor.

But I’ve had some experiences, terrifying experiences, and I couldn’t be quiet about them any longer.

There’s this myth that only those with gifts experience the supernatural, but I am an ordinary person, yet I’ve seen many things, some that haunt me to this day..

The things that are evil, whether supernatural or human, don’t wait for psychics to attack. Psychics are strong against the supernatural, they know how to fight them. Supernatural beings prey on the vulnerable, they prey on those who are weak or scared. They may be watching you right now, considering you. You never think it’s going to happen, until it doesn

I share my stores because it is cart hart in, but I write them, so you can’t tell which story is real and which is not. That way, if any people or supernatural creatures want revenge, it will be harder for them to figure out that I wrote about them or what my true identity is.

I write because I like to share and I hope you read, so these terrifying experiences can have more of a purpose than just being scary. I can’t tell the people I’m closest to in real life, they won’t understand or believe me. Talking to strangers is different and maybe we can bond with each other through sharing our stories.”

Synopsis for True Dark Stories

Warning! Read at your own risk! Studying shadow men can cause them to visit you!

“Good and definitely worth reading again. Quick and. scary almost like recounting things that we’ve experienced. Those things that go bump in the night.” A. Ronan

“The little book scared me more than 3000 of Steven King!” Trina D.

“Very Interesting and Terrifying” – Anonymous

“These stories will scare you” – Anonymous

About this book: I’ll never feel completely safe being home alone after I saw a shadow man for the first time.

About this series: This is not just a horror novel or a true life story, it’s also a game. I wanted to write out my real life supernatural experiences, but I also wanted to remain anonymous, so I disguise my identity by writing two fake stories along with every real story I tell.

It’s your job to figure out which story is true and which ones are fake.

Review of True Dark Stories

I love books like this where you have to try and figure out what is truth and what is a lie. The stories are very haunting, and I honestly could not tell what is true and what was false, to be honest. They are dark . . . They are creepy . . . They are . . . Different. I can’t wait to read volume two.
