‘Calling Grey’ is my first attempt at a thriller type genre of book. It’s a concept I’ve been considering for quite some time, and I finally feel like I have the clarity and direction to execute it properly. Please let me know if you enjoy it.

The head of the lifeless soul came to rest against what had once been the office printer. The viscous and nearly black congealed blood streaked along the floor and wall in stark contrast against to the thick layer of grey dust that filled the skeletal remains of what used to be an insurance office. The creatures face held its savage expression even in death. It's enlarged mouth displaying its glistening dark fangs as its soulless black eyes stared back at Grey.
