What would you do if someone demanded you write the best story of your life, to be judged online? That your life depended on it.
Four well-known authors receive an email telling them they are responsible for a suicide. Their antagonist makes it clear she is out for revenge and they have no option but to comply. Their task is to post the best story they can imagine online and await judgement. Filled with guilt, anxiety, and even a few murderous tendencies, each writer weaves their tale and hopes for the best. It’ll be the competition of their lives. Who’s story will win? Will anyone survive?
If you enjoy tense, fast-paced horror, then you will love Kevin J. Kennedy and J.C. Michael’s You Only Get One Shot! Your shot is now. Read You Only Get One Shot today.
Praise for the book:
"Kennedy & Michael's _You Only Get One Shot_ is quite a clever noir narrative, blending several gritty tales together into one unforgettable "escape by your wits" premise that will keep you turning the pages in terror till the twisty end is brilliantly unveiled. Gleefully disturbing and darkly terrifying to writers like me, this is such a clever and diffuse story, with the same puzzling torment of the SAW movies, but all the grit of a pulp crime novel. If you have this book in your hands or on the screen right now, you better buy it right away, because you only get one shot..."
Michael A. Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award winning author of Play Dead
"You Only Get One Shot gives all new meaning to a publishing deadline! Quite entertaining!"
Weston Kincade, author of the 'A Life of Death' series.
This was a fun story. Scary as heck for an author to read. Would I dare to say I didn’t enjoy it? Probably not. Good thing I did!
Willow Rose, author of the Emma Frost and Rebekka Franck series
This edition promises a mix of styles and horror sub-genres — giving readers the eerie chills of dread, bloody ritualistic horror, the terrors of technology when it develops a consciousness of its own, insanely creative and trippy bizzaro and the desperation love wracks on the heart.

Welcome to the carnival!
Enjoy the sweet smells of the cotton candy and candy apples. Listen to the calliope music as you wander among the many stalls, to the screams of children enjoying the various rides. It’s all been designed to take your money, but you already know that. What you are not aware of, however, are the strange goings-on of the carnival world after dark. Do the carnies want more than your money? Does the fortune teller know more than she tells you? Are some of the games more dangerous than others?
Explore your worst fears, and perhaps gain some new ones, in these twisted tales of what really goes on at the carnival after dark!
