LIQUID FEAR FOOL'S GOLD RUSH! Giveaway and Tour

LIQUID FEAR: A Mystery Thriller
By Scott Nicholson

When Roland Doyle wakes up with a dead woman in his motel room, the only clue is a mysterious vial of pills bearing the label “Take one every 4 hrs or else.”

Ten years before, six people were involved in a secret pharmaceutical trial that left one of them murdered and five unable to remember what happened. Now the experiment is continuing, as Dr. Sebastian Briggs wants to finish his research into fear response and post-traumatic stress disorder. He’s backed by a major drug company and an ambitious U.S. Senator, but he also has a personal stake in the outcome.


Only by taking the mysterious pills can the survivors stave off the creeping phobias, carnal impulses, and madness that threaten to consume them. But the pills have an unexpected side effect—the survivors start remembering the terrible acts they perpetrated a decade ago. They are lured back to the Monkey House, the remote facility where the original trials took place, and Briggs has prepared it for their arrival.
Now they are trapped, they each have only one pill left, and cracks are forming in their civilized veneer.
After the pills are gone, there’s only one option. “Or else.”


Read about it at Haunted Computer or view it at Amazon, BN.com, or Smashwords.

What’s Your Liquid Fear? (Sen. Daniel Burchfield)
By Scott Nicholson

How far will a politician go to secure his power?

For Daniel Burchfield, whose eyes on the White House, there is no limit—including the taking of American military lives in Afghanistan in order to stir up turmoil that he can exploit to advance his career.

Burchfield’s original interest in the Halcyon drug is almost noble and fitting for his role on the Senate health subcommittee, because the drug is ostensibly designed to treat post-traumatic stress disorder. However, the drug works by suppressing memory, which can lead to dangerous side effects.

But it’s Halcyon’s twin, Seethe, that has Burchfield excited. The secretive substance was synthesized during fear-response experiments, and it opens up a mental Pandora’s Box—fear, lust, rage, the most primitive responses. And every successful politician knows you don’t manipulate reason, you manipulate emotion.

Then Burchfield himself is exposed…

Liquid Fear. A little drop will do.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
