His studio has become his refuge and his prison - a place of boundless imagination and lonely isolation. Brian Archer, creator of a series of successful graphic novels about a vengeful supernatural being called “The Highwayman,” has become a recluse after the adoration of a female fan turned to rage and violence.

But all that changes when he meets a renowned and beautiful illustrator, A.J. Hart, who carries emotional scars of her own. Their work together is fueled by the unrequited passion they share and a mysterious bottle of black ink that arrives one day at Brian’s doorstep.

The impossibly dark liquid has mystical properties, making their characters appear so real they eventually come to life, reigning terror on those who mean them harm and if not stopped—threatens to unleash an apocalypse on all mankind. Brian must break free of his self-imposed exile and solve the mystery that allowed these terrible creatures into the world.

Ink by Glenn Benest & Dale Pitman

INKThe creator of graphic novels becomes the object of an enamored stalker and his home becomes his both his refuge and his prison. Brian Archer creates supernatural characters, some good, some evil. His world is dark, edgy and it is said he brings his characters to life, could it be possible that he truly has? Only his faithful dog, Deke, knows what Brian is dealing with, knows fact from fiction, but is his protection enough to save Brian’s fragile mind?

Thanks to meeting the woman who is saving his soul, making him face his fears and the world, Brian is learning to live again, to leave his self-imposed prison. But has A.J. angered his stalker or perhaps his characters?

Ink by Glenn Benest and Dale Pitman digs through the murk of a dark psychological thriller and strips our senses bare as we watch the horrors that play out in Brian’s life. Are they real or perceived? Has Brian’s mind finally crossed the veil between reality and fiction or has he given life to the characters he has created? There is more going on than meets the eye…

With more twists than a dried grape vine, this tale will take you through the dark corners of the human mind, and the dark alleys of intrigue and evil machinations. Will we be returned to sanity with answers to our questions or will we be left wanting more? Do you like mysteries that make your skin crawl? Do you like the big build up to the meat of the story before starting that dizzying spiral to the end? Take a look at Ink.
