Simon Janus- The Scrubs

James Jeter, the notorious serial killer with a sixth sense, holds court inside London's Wormwood Scrubs Prison. He's the focus of the "North Wing Project." Under the influence of a hallucinogen, Jeter can create an alternative world known as "The Rift" containing the souls of his victims. Pardons are on offer to inmates who'll enter The Rift. Michael Keeler has nothing to lose and little to live for. He's sent into The Rift to learn the identity of Jeter's last victim.  It's a mission where the guilty can be redeemed, but at a price...

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
It’s a very vivid tale, which I think will stick with people long after they've finished reading it.  I hope they'll fall in love with Michael Keeler, a damaged hero, who gives everything to redeem himself while combating a vile antagonist. 

Q: Why did you go indie?
The book had originally come out in paperback with a short print run.  The feedback from readers and reviewers was great and I wanted more people to enjoy the story, especially as it is the first book in a trilogy.  

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
James Herbert is my all time favorite horror writer, but I would include Dean Koontz, David Morrell (especially for his short fiction), Stephen King, Shaun Hutson and Mort Castle.  I could go on all day, but I'll stop there.  :-)
