Stone Faces by Brent A. Harris (Note: This story does not tie in to the events of A Time of Need, despite similarities.) The lime-green school bus squealed as it slowed along the circular drive reserved for field trips and tours. Rattling, the bus hissed to a halt on the cracked concrete. Gaius lurched in […]
While our website hasn’t reflected it, we have made many changes and updates coming into the new year. We are working on some exciting projects and humming along here behind the scenes. We are starting strong this year by having four books in various stages of production as we hit the new year, and we […]
It’s been a busy year for Insomnia with the release of our first two books, The Vanishing of Katherine Sullivan, and Fields of Broken Steel. We are very proud of all the hard work done by our editors, authors, and cover designers this year, since we had a lot to do, and everyone put forward […]

In today’s world of self-publishing authors have been provided unprecedented access to powerful tools which allow them to cut out the middle man and go straight to print.

We are in the stages of finalizing our contract format and getting the contracts out to our short-story contributors. We have also been preparing our novel contract because we […]
