There’s only one week to go until Blood Worth by D. B. McKenzie releases and you can pre-order digital copies now from Smashwords, B&N and Amazon! This supernatural urban fantasy holds its cards to its chest right until the very climax, with a surprising twist ending that none of us saw coming!
Follow young Devon as he goes on the run from his homophobic father, arriving in the quaint rural town of Sudbury where, in order to survive, he has no choice but to sign up as a donor at the Centre, an unusual corporation that gives cool hard cash for small blood donations. Devon soon finds himself in the middle of the strange goings-on, caught between two aggressive donation recipients whilst a dog–no, it’s definitely a wolf–lurks in the neighbourhood and seems to be stalking him. His co-worker, Tara, quickly becomes his friend, and together they start to unravel what is happening behind the scenes at the Centre.

The pills only help if the monsters aren’t real. Sadly, Devon McKenzie figured that out a little too late.
Running from his homophobic father and a mental diagnosis he’s unwilling to accept, Devon finds himself in Sudbury where the people are friendly, the parks are quiet and a looming shadow cast by the local Centre taints the idyllic village life.
Unfortunately for Devon, the Centre is his only hope of maintaining his new-found freedom.
Selling his blood to an organization that no one seemed to truly know anything about wasn’t very high on his list of things to do but after signing a contract, Devon finds himself as bound to the Centre as the poor souls that came before him.
The contract promised money and security, it didn’t say a thing about dead donors, a mysterious shadow dog that was definitely a wolf, or the return of horrific visions that Devon thought he’d buried when he’d left the psychiatric institution that his parents had sent him to years ago.
As the Centre’s secrets continue to grow, Devon begins to realize that Sudbury isn’t the quaint little village he believed it to be. Monsters linger behind every gentle smile and the more Devon digs, the weaker his grip on his sanity becomes.
With another donor’s life hanging in the balance, Devon finds himself in a race against time to figure out what the Centre is truly hiding before it’s too late for all of them.
But the only truth that exists in the quiet town of Sudbury, is that what you see isn’t always what you get and a few drops of blood may be worth more than humanity could possibly imagine.
