Guest: The Activation by J. Cafesin

Today I’ve got a treat for everyone. It’s an excerpt from J. Cafesin’s short story collection, Fractured Fairy Tales of the Twilight Zone. This is the campfire story The Activation, one of the stories you can find in the suspenseful fantasy collection.

Author Bio

J. Cafesin lives on the eastern slope of the redwood laden Oakland Hills with her husband/best friend, two gorgeous, talented, spectacular kids, and a bratty but cute Shepherd pound hound. Find her on Facebook, Google+, and Goodreads.

The Activation – Synopsis

Michael still loves the family’s annual summer camping trip. His teen sister, Amy, doesn’t. It’s likely going to be their last year among the ancient redwoods, the majestic elks, and the seemingly glowing round rocks Michael discovers along the bank of the roaring river. The Activation is a cautionary [campfire] tale for bickering children, and the parents who fail to silence them.

Review: Love Gone Mad by Mark Rubinstein

Love Gone Mad by Mark RubinsteinWhen heart surgeon Adrian Douglas and Megan Haggarty, RN, meet at the hospital where they work, neither has any idea of the scorpion’s nest into which they’ve stumbled.

Review: Indigo Awakening by Jordan Dane

Indigo Awakening by Jordan DaneBecause of what you are, the Believers will hunt you down.

Voices told Lucas Darby to run. Voices no one else can hear. He’s warned his sister not to look for him, but Rayne refuses to let her troubled brother vanish. On her desperate search, she meets Gabriel Stewart, a runaway with mysterious powers and far too many secrets. Rayne can’t explain her crazy need to trust the strange yet compelling boy, even though he scares her.

They discover Lucas is running from the Believers, a fanatical church secretly hunting psychic kids—gifted “Indigo” teens feared to be the next evolution of mankind. Rayne’s only hope of saving her brother is Gabe, who is haunted by an awakening power—a force darker than either of them imagine—that could doom them all.
