Love should not survive the horror of night. Love is not for the wicked, yet it finds solace in the arms of a lover. What happens when you love another where racial inequity forbids this courtship? Meet Enoch, a wealthy plantation owner in the southeastern part of the United States. His plantation is a ruse to help free slaves. Enoch uses his merchant ships to transport runaways north to Boston.
It is in the dead of night, Enoch saves Demisha from her lover and master, Franklin Wilshire. A budding romance forms between Enoch, a vampire, and his ebony queen. Two plantation owners secretly go to war. Will Franklin kill the beast or will he become the feast in this wicked tale of adultery, sultry sex, hope, despair, romance, and action. Will Enoch save Demisha from the clutches of Franklin? Will Franklin kill the beast?
The twist, of how the vampire came to be, is like no other ever written. Delve into the pages and get lost in a plethora of emotions. Romance is in the air!
GRIMM & GRAM
Does reality exist beyond the dimension we know? What if the laws of spirituality transcend the comprehension of man's vision of the afterlife? Can you make a deal with the Devil? Gram did!
Phyllis, a grandmother of one, a homicide detective, is confronted with the agony and defeat of death around her 80th year on mother earth. Her only option was to make a deal with the Grimm Reaper in hopes he will spare her life. Little does she know that you must be careful what you wish for. Death comes to those that wait, but if you could kill to save one year on your life would you do it?
A completely different twist on serial killers with a conscience. Grimm & Gram will entertain you until the very end. A slightly cynical view on life, death, and what it means to be alive. Enjoy the read.
"Grimm & Gram is the first book that I read from Shay Mills and if his other books are written in the same mannerism, we have ourselves a modern-day Alfred Hitchcock."
The New England Book Critic, Amazon Review
"Although the story is definitely warped, it is written with style and whimsy. It reminds me of a Ray Bradbury novella."
J. Walker, Amazon Review
"This was such a quirky, fun read! I loved this interesting and original take on the Grimm Reaper mythology and beliefs."
Angela Hayes, Book Blogger/Reviewer (Amazon Review)
" It’s along the lines of Christopher Moore’s “A Dirty Job,” but still remains its own story."
Larry, Amazon Review
"A well written page-turner that I really enjoyed!"
Joshua Shrifrin, Amazon Review
Some people have fantasies about killing someone. Yes, some do. What deters most from killing someone is their ability to feel remorse, but this story breaks that mold!
Vick is tired of his son-in-law’s abusive ways, punk ass mouth, and the way Tad disrespects his wife and daughters. He so desires to teach Tad a lesson. Follow Vick as he provides Tad with a much-needed course in humility that he will never forget.
This dark horse comedy oozes disgusting fun with a gruesome desire to drag on Tad’s death until the very end. Good versus evil is thrown out the window, and it will keep you cheering for the killer while you hold your breath. Darkly entertaining and comical! Join Vick on his comeback journey. Die Tad die!

"This book details exactly what the title says, and it does so by delving into the character's own words as if they were sharing a secret triumph."
Luna Ronin, Author/Editor (Amazon Review)
"Mills’ ability to offer readers a glimpse into the daily struggles of a man who is used to handling those he does not agree with and the tender heart that beats for his loved ones within allows breathing room within the story and gives it the much needed “human touch” just before arterial flow makes a horrifying appearance. "
Kester James Finley, Author
"I really liked this piece. It was a straight forward, neat, organized and descriptive story. Constructed well with a fine tempo, the reader is pulled through the daily struggles of a changed man attempting to keep his cool."
