The Silver Ring
David Beveridge is in the wrong place at the wrong time.
When a gunman storms into a convenience store demanding money, he ends up shooting both the counterwoman and David. Only David doesn't die. Neither does the counterwoman. David is able to bring her back to life with the help of a mysterious silver ring he found earlier that night -- a ring that the darkest evil in the universe wants for its very own.
The Silver Ring is an 18,000-word novella that contains a special afterword and a bonus short story.
Praise for The Silver Ring:
"Robert Swartwood's The Silver Ring is a full-tilt no-holds-barred bobsled of a ride, absolutely engaging and a hundred percent fun. If this one doesn't grab you, it's time to up your Ritalin."
-- Joe Schreiber, author of Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick and Perry's Killer Playlist
"In short, sharp chapters, Robert Swartwood's The Silver Ring launches the reader into a high-flying, fast-paced cosmic adventure in which the fate of the universe rests in the hands of a seventeen-year-old movie clerk. Grounded in the emotional realities of an everyday family, Swartwood infuses his tall tale with the humanity of a young man navigating his way through the emotional minefields of everyday life while trying to be the best big-brother he can be. The Silver Ring delivers light in the heart of darkness, and simple truths from webs of mystery. Have fun!"
-- Gerard Houarner, author of The Oz Suite and A Blood of Killers
