When Phoebe McBride returns to Bonneville for her twentieth high school reunion, she tells herself it’s the best way to confront what has haunted her since her senior year. There was one boy who never lived to see graduation, and in a way she blames herself for this tragedy. Now a child psychologist, Phoebe is determined to face her demons by going back, but those demons may be fresher than she realizes.
When she arrives at the school there are only three of her old classmates present—a bad boy turned writer, a fallen football hero and a popular girl whose life isn’t all she’d thought it would be. Bonneville isn’t even set up for a party—it’s set up for detention. Tables are aligned and her old P.E. teacher sits waiting. He always hosted detention back in her school days, but now he thinks he’s here to accept an award for all his years of service.
Soon the guests discover gruesome keepsakes waiting on their chairs. Horror and paranoia sink their claws into the class of ’96 as they are forced to revisit the worst memory from their youth, and ultimately pay for their past.

Coming from Grindhouse Press this June.
Kim White is a very popular cheerleader. She’s pretty, healthy, and comes from a well-off family. She has everything a girl of sixteen is supposed to want. And she’s sick to death of it.
In search of something to pull her out of suicidal thoughts, she decides to lose her virginity, having heard it’s a life-changing event. But Kim doesn’t want to do it the same way the other girls do. She seduces one of her teachers, hoping to ruin his life just for the fun of it. This starts Kim on a runaway train of sadism as she makes every effort to destroy the lives of those around her. But soon simple backstabbing is not enough to keep her excited, and she nosedives into sabotage, violence and even murder.
When Kim finds out she’s pregnant with her teacher’s child, a new madness overtakes her, and she realizes there’s only one thing that will satisfy her baby’s hunger . . .
Kristopher will be appearing at the following conventions, signing books, greeting fans, and generally loitering.

The editing stage will begin soon. Until then, be sure to check out the other great titles by Grindhouse Press.

Artists come in all varieties.
As an undertaker, Harold considers himself an artist, and the human body his canvas. His expertise is bringing the appearance of life back to clients for their wakes. But when his ex-lovers start arriving in body bags, Harold believes he’s receiving a message to create a new masterpiece.
Rutger and Kandi also make their art with flesh. The duo found fame in the golden age of pornography, releasing huge hits in the 1980s and living extravagant lives. Now under the pressure of a new market, one that craves more vile and taboo movies, Rutger hires Kandi once again, this time to create the most shocking porno imaginable. They even draw in two curious teenagers, Toby and Jessica, whose cabin vacation has landed them in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Attracted by all of these creations, a mysterious red dust surrounds these unique artists, bringing their worlds together.
Soon they’ll all learn that art truly does imitate life.
