Splashdown Darkwater Announcement: Winter by Keven Newsome

Today it is my great pleasure to announce to you our first title from Splashdown Darkwater. Drumrolls please!

by Keven Newsome

Winter Maessen didn't ask for the gift of prophecy. She's happy being a freak - but now everyone thinks she's crazy. Or evil.
Goths aren't all the same, you know. Some are Christians.
...Christians to whom God sends visions.

Students at her university are being attacked, and Winter knows there's more than flesh and blood at work.
Her gift means she's the only one who can stop it - but at what price?

... or view it in its natural environment at

Winter is now available for pre-order at

Are you ready for the chill?
