The Cursed by Elley Cooper

Two horror tales in one boook inspired by the AMC series Creepshow. Randy and Bill are camping when a mysterious, glowing figure wakes them up in the middle of the night. What was the thing and what does it want with them?

And Maisie, on the hunt for vintage clothes, she visits a flea market where an antique piece of jewelry turns out to be magical...but also possibly cursed.

14 Ways to Die by Vincent Ralph

The Magpie Man is looking for his fourteenth victim. He is a killer that is still at large. And Jess is committed to uncovering him before he can strike again...even if she might be his next victim, just as her mother was his first.

White Smoke by Tiffany D. Jackson (author of Grown and Allegedly)

"Thrilling, chilling and utterly riveting...high stakes tension, a deliciously creepy atmosphere, and characters you really, really hope make it to the end." Karen M. McManus, author of One of Us Is Lying.
