"Sunfall: Episode 1, Season 1 is short, but not without impact. Very-detailed, the descriptions will have you visualizing each scene, and cringing at most. Each character appears real, life-like from thoughts down to conversation and makes you hate their upcoming fate. Yet, it still leaves you craving more. Great writing style... Intriguing plot… I do believe these talented authors may have just created something epic. Anxiously awaiting episode two.” -- Natalie Carlisle, author of The Shifted and Finding Keith
It came without warning...
One Sunday afternoon, those who stood in the sun caught fire and turned to ash. Forced indoors, humanity must learn to live in the darkness. Unless, what waits in the darkness catches them, too...
Forced inside a giant retail warehouse, a group of survivors must learn to live with the darkness and each other. A father aims to protect his children from a dangerous new world, whatever the cost. An ex-cop burdened by her shaky past puts her skills to the test when people start dying. A mysterious worshiper attempts to rally the community and seek alternative refuge.
Sunfall is an episodic series that will be released in "episodes" and "seasons", much like a television show. Each "season" will consist of six episodes, and each episode will be anywhere from 12k-20k words. Recommended for adult audiences.

Except for the children. The kids have proven to be quite filling...
