99¢ Sale: J.C. Michael - Discoredia

Discoredia by J.C. Michael is a fantastic story. John F.D. Taff calls it the "Ballroom Blitz from Hell." Bracken MacLeod says it's "a literal trip into the abyss."

The reason that Books of the Dead picked up the title is because it was totally original, and unlike anything I had read before. That being said, somehow the antagonist reminded me of Richard Straker Stephen King's amazing story 'Salem's Lot.

And right now, the ebook is on sale for 99¢ from AmazonAmazon UKSmashwordsKoboiBooks, and Barnes & Noble.

Here's the synopsis:

As the year draws to a close a mysterious stranger makes a proposition to club owner, Warren Charlton. It's a deal involving a brand new drug called Pandemonium. The good news: the drug is free.
The bad news: it comes at a heavy price, promising much but delivering far more. Euphoria and ecstasy. Death and depravity. All come together, at Discoredia.

“In “Discoredia,” J C Michael unleashes upon ordinary, unsuspecting characters a fiendish plot that only maestros such as Bentley Little and Michael Slade could rival.” ~ Dean Lombardo, author of Space Games

“Discoredia will take you on a crazy ride to hell and back, if you’re ballsy enough to take on this awesome book.” ~ Claire Riley, author of Limerence

“Fantastic. Epic. I’ve done a lot of drugs, and wrote my share of stories, but never have they both danced together in the darkness such as in Discoredia.” ~Mark Matthews, author of On the Lips of Children

Terrill was the most ruthless of vampires, but over the long centuries of his existence he has evolved into a Golden Vampire, renouncing violence, able to walk among humans and in sunlight. What he didn’t know––what no one knew––was that the evolution was directed by forces bigger than himself.

Terrill and others of his kind have evolved into a higher form of vampire, but another type of vampire has emerged, too. Shadow Vampires can walk in sunlight, for they carry the darkness with them, in their souls and their bodies. And they are determined to destroy everyone in their way, especially the Golden Vampires… who are the only ones who can stop them.

"If you like your undead to be more Fright Night than Twilight, Duncan McGeary's Vampire Evolution Trilogy will be your cup of gore." ~ Steve Perry, New York Times Bestselling Author of Men in Black, The Mask, and Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

The most powerful and feared vampire disappeared at the height of his powers and passed into legend. Most vampires think he’s dead. He is not dead. Terrill has gone into hiding to evade his bitter enemy’s wrath, and has vowed never to kill another human. But one night his vampire nature reasserts itself, and he kills an innocent young woman.

Instead of running, he sets out to make amends. His quest for redemption goes terribly wrong, and Terrill finds himself reduced to hiding in woodsheds and caves. Soon both humans and vampires are chasing him. His only hope lies in the most downtrodden of men and women, and in the mercy of a girl who has little reason to forgive him, and every reason to hate him.
