The Eyes in the Dark
Tales of Crow Book 1
by Chris Ward
For Jun Matsumoto, a school trip to the remote study camp of British Heights is hardly his idea of a good time. Akane Yamaguchi, the love of his life, hates him, and he’s rooming with Ogiwara, the school bully.
Things get even worse when most of the students become violently sick, and Jun and a handful of survivors are left cut off from civilization as the snow closes in. Soon the power has gone off, and a strange, birdlike creature begins terrorizing the guests.
As the students group together with the other remaining guests, suddenly their understanding of danger turns on its head.
There are creatures out in the woods, and they’re hungry for human flesh…
The Eyes in the Dark is the first in Chris Ward’s Tales of Crow series, an exciting blend of horror, fantasy and dystopian science-fiction with a heavy dash of black humour.

A new way to bring new voices to people who love to read.
Authors’ cooperative venture changes the publishing world — again
iAi to be a symbol of quality and professionalism in publishing
A group of writers, marketers and designers unaffiliated with publishers have banded together to create their own publishing model, “Independent Authors International (iAi).”
The new organization, whose members hail from across the U.S. and around the world, aims to support and legitimize the independent author movement, and bring new voices to readers throughout the world.
Recently developed technologies like e-readers and print-on-demand make it now possible for individual writers to publish books without the resources of a large commercial publishing enterprise,” says iAi spokesperson, Scott Bury.
The iAi co-operative will help professional authors by bringing together the skills and services that a commercial publisher offers, while leaving the authors in control of their work, at a fraction of the cost, and with a much more responsive and personal touch.”
The iAi’s goal is to help its members produce quality, professional works recognized by literary agents, publishers, booksellers, and readers. The group is a democratic, cooperative organization controlled by its members.
Membership is granted by invitation of existing members. The group vets prospective members to ensure they meet the professional writing, editing, and marketing standards of the iAi.
To receive the services of the organization, members must contribute their editing, production, or marketing skills to other members.
The iAi currently has 10 authors and publishing professionals from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Israel and the Philippines. The iAi website at http://iauthorsi.org/ has information on the organization’s goals and principles, a list of members, books that meet iAi criteria and links to sites where these books can be purchased.
