MILK-BLOOD is a tale of Urban Horror based on a true setting, and is what happens when a social worker and writer visit the inner city of Detroit.

“Milk-Blood is a discomforting story of real inner city horrors, told by characters so real they pop off the page. Add the supernatural mix to the story and it really grabs you by the throat. Very much recommended!” ~ John F.D. Taff, author of Little Deaths and The Bell Witch

The cover design is by Kealan Patrick Burke from Elderlemon Design, and the editor is Richard Thomas from Dark House Press.

The story you are about to read is entirely true. I know there was a disclaimer that called this a piece of fiction and that any resemblance to an actual person, living or dead, is entirely coincidental. It has to say that. So now if you are damaged while reading the story, I am no longer liable.
