Spotlight: Painless by Marty Thornley + giveaway

Genres: Adult, Horror, Psychological Thriller
The debut psychological-horror novel from author Marty Thornley is a page-turning ride, a front row seat to a clinical trial gone horribly wrong.

For Greg Owens, this was supposed to be a chance to end years of back pain and escape his reliance on pain pills. If it all worked out, he could maybe even get back the life he left behind as the pills took control.

Instead, as the patients are cured of their physical pain, they encounter a different sort of pain building inside them – obsessive thoughts, depression, self-destruction. The side-effects grow worse, and the suspense ratchets tighter. The patients want answers and violent revenge, setting them on a collision course with a crazed doctor, determined to protect his life’s obsession.

What readers are saying…
“…most definitely a recommended read, though it’s probably not the best choice for those with a weak stomach.”

“Gruesome and twisted. Awesome!!!”

“OMG this book. Holy heck the gruesome descriptions of blood and gore and guts was SO RAD. I found myself cringing and fidgeting and yes, even feeling a bit nauseous in some spots – but totally in a GOOD WAY! Painless was exactly what I wanted in a super-unique, creepy, shocking horror-thriller.”

About the Author:
Marty started writing short stories as a teenager, inspired as much by favorite books and movies as the environment and characters that define the South Shore of Massachusetts. The pull of the movies dragged him first to film school and finally to Los Angeles, where he poked at the outskirts of the industry with screenplays and short films.

As his interest in a film career fizzled, he rebuilt himself bit-by-bit as a programmer. He spent the next decade building websites, finally realizing that something had been lost. His stories were collecting dust in the back of his brain while he sat through conference calls and code reviews.

So he returned to the woods of New England and the calming darkness under the trees. He returned to find the things that crawl in the undergrowth and turn them into words on the page. He dusted off one of his screenplays and turned it into his first novel. In the process, a dormant storyteller was awakened and is now seeking the next blank page to fill.

  3. Hey, where can I order cannabis supplements for pain? Just like fish oils, cannabis seeds are a great source of Omega- 3 and Omega- 6. These Omegas are unsaturated fats. Or maybe CBD?

  4. The pain is terrible. Maybe you should try CBD? I once wanted to take care of my health and my friend decided to help me by sharing this site where I ordered CBD gummies. This helped me to normalize the sleep process and get rid of anxiety. You can also take a look there for yourself.

  5. Are you sure about the safety of this supplement? People say that they are made from synthetic substances to lower the water level in the body. It can badly affect the kidneys. I fear similar side effects, therefore I prefer natural medicine. You can check out and read the blog on this topic. Most of all I liked the effect of weed with medical card It gently soothes the nervous system and relieves pain. Now I can train more efficiently and more calmly in relation to eating restrictions.
