Michael (with Aaron Patterson): Michael did the unthinkable to save Airel from death, but now he must live with the choices he has made--both good and evil. Tortured by his past and haunted by what he believes might be his future, Michael seeks redemption--but will the past prove to be too strong? How can he break free of it and be the man he longs to be for Airel? If only he had never... Airel. Michael's one true love. He had forced her to drink in new life only to find that old wounds and deep scars do not heal overnight. Can she truly forgive Michael, can she truly love him? And can he accept that forgiveness? Or is it all for nothing, and has he gone too far already? As the darkness of past choices closes in on them, chases them, intercepts them, coming at them from everywhere at once, how can their love possibly survive? 

Airel (with Aaron Patterson): All Airel ever wanted was to be normal, to disappear into the crowd. But bloodlines can produce surprises, like an incredible ability to heal. Then there’s Michael Alexander, the new guy in school, who is impossibly gorgeous…and captivated by her. Somewhere in the back of her mind, she can hear the sound of pages turning, and another, older story being written. It is the story of an ancient family, of great warriors, of the Sword of Light, and the struggle against an evil so terrible, so far-reaching, that it threatens everything. Airel knew change would be an inevitable part of life. But can she hold on when murder and darkness begin to close in and take away everything she loves? Will she have what it takes when the truth is finally revealed?

“It takes rare talent for a man to write a novel from a male POV and have it published to great critical and commercial acclaim. But it takes a miracle for that same male, or in this case males, to write a novel from the POV of a teenage girl and have it turn out as incredibly as did the new StoneHouse YA by Aaron Patterson and Chris White, Airel. From the first sentence, I felt compelled to dive into this young woman’s story and just as importantly, I felt like I personally knew her, which means I laughed, stressed and cried right along with her. A beautifully written and crafted fiction about teenage innocence, faith, loss and love. A must read for teens and adults alike.”
--Vincent Zandri, International Bestselling Author of The Remains, The Innocent, and Concrete Pearl.

The Marsburg Diary. Set partially in late Victorian Europe, partially in the modern day American Midwest, follow Harvey Marsburg, son of the late William Marsburg, as he reads through his deceased father's long-lost diary. At first, Harv is annoyed at the peculiarities of his father, irritated that he has to uncover old wounds by reading this old book. But he finds to his amazement that his father might not actually have been mad. In fact it appears that William may have been nearly 150 years old when he died in 1977. Now his body lies decomposing in a Yorkshire mausoleum, but his legacy lives on. Harvey reads cryptic notes from the executor: May your father rest in peace. He deserves it. Something watches him from the darknesses of his house as he reads the diary with growing interest. Plus, there are two other books in that old trunk that the foundation sent. One of them, he could swear it, is calling to him...

The Wagner DiaryThe Airel Saga Diary Books continue right where they left off: with ol' Harv stranded in the middle of the woods in Illinois. He's not sure, but something just isn't right. Weird cabins appear and then disappear, cornfields are ready for harvest in the spring, something's chasing him, and--oh yeah--he's out of ammo. Anything else would be uninteresting, after all. If the Marsburg Diary had you asking questions, The Wagner Diary will answer lots of them, with a healthy dose of fresh mystery as the rules of time and space are bent, twisted, and broken. Find out why Kreios has a Book in the first place, see more of the mysterious Haywood, get a fresh glimpse of William Marsburg and his motivations, and of course, discover why Herr Wagner has "always hated Falkenhayn." Will Harvey Marsburg get to the bottom of the Book, or will what chases him prevail? This is a novella that will keep you turning the digital pages, eager to find out what happens next to ol' Harv, Guardian of the Book of Kreios, a quirky, sometimes hilarious, reluctantly fearless, chainsmoking, soda-swilling, doughnut-munching unlikely hero.

K [phantasmagoria]: How far is too far? If a man is pushed past breaking and all bets are off, what are the rules then? K is a man severely damaged by life, by circumstance, by a past he can’t remember and probably by the meds his government-mandated psychiatrist has him on. He struggles violently, trying to make sense of his bipolar hatred for God, for people, for all the stupid assumptions, for himself. Is he going crazy? He sees the most horrific visions, a phantasmagoria that is slowly wrecking him. Day and night. And it can only be explained by the idea of precognition…until even science fails…and whatever barrier there is between this world and the next is destroyed by the unexplainable. This is a chilling and sinister story packed with lies. Some of them may be true...
Strongbox (a digital short): The Strongbox is safe. There is light. The walls are cool and sleek, and they keep the darkness out. Thea knows there are things outside that want to come in, and destroy. She does not know why. She knows only her fear. Then, one day, the door opens and she us pushed out. Into the darkness. There are sounds. And something is coming for her.

Yes, Dear (a digital short): A man and woman arrive finally at the country house after journeying all day from London. She tells him to get the kettle on and stoke the fire; it’s cold and the snow is deep. She’s accustomed to bossing him. She’s used to his response to everything: “Yes, Dear.” But what destiny has pent up comes swiftly, without warning…and the works of a life produce consequence.

Coming soon: Amethyst (a digital short). Rosewood, Florida was a peaceful little town just off the Gulf coast until January 1st, 1923. Then Frannie Taylor claimed she'd been attacked, and for six days it became a black and white war zone. Five were murdered in the purge. Sam Cooper was tortured and then shot. For what? Whatever dark motivation that was behind the massacre remains forty years later, and a simple blind man, Mario Laforest, is right in the middle of it. He's a criminal inmate at the Rosewood Sanitarium. But is he really so insane just because he refuses to speak the word "Amethyst?"
