"Damn! That was fascinating, Jeff. An interesting story, well told. Thanks for sharing." ~ Matthew McNash


The Creepy series is a one of a kind combination of true supernatural occurances, mixed with a variety of supernatural short stories. Creepy contains The Rumblin' and Murdoch's Eyes. Best of all, Creepy includes some of the author's real life supernatural experiences... absolutely true ghost stories. 

Don't forget to grab a copy of CREEPY: BOOK 2, which has 3x's more creepy stories! 

"I was around ten years old when I had my first supernatural experience. Thirty years later, my ghosts have returned and they are creepier than ever. I've seen full-bodied apparations, felt a dark presence practically breathing down my neck, and everyday I work with a ghost who seems more curious than anything." ~ Jeff Bennington

The following true stories are all inside CREEPY:

The Shadow Man
The Ghost Named Earl
Someone in the Basement

These ghostly experiences have influenced my writing and allowed me to truly capture the essence of fear and suspense that you'll discover in my fiction. If you enjoy creepy tales from Stephen King, you'll love my heart pounding, short stories too. 

"With the author using horror as a psychological special effect, Murdoch's Eyes packs a fearsome punch. A killer of a short story thriller!" - Michele Tater, The Couch Tater Review

"Murdoch's Eyes is a wicked, twisted little tale. A thrilling paranormal both well written and with some truly freaky characters. I don't think I'll ever look at anyone with green eyes the same again." - Jen Wylie, Author of Sweet Light

"Reading the reviews of this book, I wondered if it was all it was hyped up to be. Reading it - I discovered it really was. The violence is beautifully executed, the plot is perfect in its speed and intensity and the characters are wonderfully written. Jeff Bennington has written a stunning story here. Ten out of ten." - Michael Wilson

"Very interesting story, Jeff! I don't think I would've gotten much sleep either." - Neal Hock, The Bookhound's Den

***If you like ghost stories you'll love REUNION, an Amazon bestselling ghost story that takes place twenty years after a school shooting, with a twist that willl kick your....well you get the idea. 

**** Be sure to check out TWISTED VENGEANCE and CREEPY 2

You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey from Perception to Knowledge, Peace of Mind and Joy
You Have Chosen To Remember – James B. Cisneros
Genre – Self-Help
Rating – PG

Free until 25 November 2012
The awareness, peace of mind and joy that you are yearning for – is available to you now.
Anything real that has been obtained by religious leaders or spiritual gurus is also obtainable to you. In fact, awareness, peace of mind and joy are not so much obtained as they are realized and remembered. All knowledge resides within you now. Nothing that is given to one is withheld from another. God does not play favorites. God loves all, equally and always.

Love is all you are, it is your foundation. People are taught, and have the perception that they must build on their foundation to experience peace of mind, success and joy. How and what you build on your foundation is up to you, it is your free will. However, if you simply extend what you truly are, you will create more beauty than anything that could or has ever been built. Your base, your foundation, is perfect and you need not add nor subtract anything from perfection.
There are many paths you may choose to take in order to realize awareness, peace of mind and joy in the present moment. The journey will be as complicated as you choose to make it, or as easy as you allow it to be.

Look within, and move towards those paths that offer you peace of mind and joy, and are in alignment with your true self. Do not concern yourself with the paths others may be trying to force upon you, or what others say is the correct or acceptable way to grow. Within your heart, there lies a memory of your true self. It is this memory you search for, and it is this memory you will remember. All truth lies within you. You may have temporarily forgotten this, but you have now chosen to remember. 

You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey from Perception to Knowledge, Peace of Mind and Joy is an incredibly inspiring book filled with simple, yet very effective, strategies for remembering your true self, and embodying awareness, peace of mind and joy - in your day to day life.

Bob Dukes, diffident hero of the "Our Man in Mazita" series, is a recently appointed and inexperienced diplomat working for Her Majesty's Britannic Government in the early sixties on the island of Mazita off the East African coast. As well as learning his new duties he is faced with the task of being a single father to his three children. 

Bob's first official task is to organize a dinner for his boss, the Governor Designate of Mazita, who wishes to establish cordial relations with local bigwigs drawn from the many different cultures. Add to this minefield a reluctant first course and you get what the first reader called, a "Witty, pacey, and altogether delightful story."

Katie Penryn spent an enchanted childhood on the coast where her father was a diplomat. If people like Bob Dukes, she promises many more of his adventures.
The Volunteer
The Volunteer – Barbara Taylor Sissel
Genre – Mystery, Suspense
Rating – PG13
4.1 (43 reviews)
Free until 25 November 2012
In the fall of 1999, psychologist Sophia Beckman is compelled by the court to give testimony on behalf of a death row inmate that results in his sentence being overturned. Haunted by secrets from her past, she avoids the media spotlight as much as possible, but soon, other prisoners' families come seeking her assistance. One family in particular, the wife, children, and brother of Jarrett Capshaw, is especially insistent. Forty-one days ago Jarrett's request to die was granted by the State of Texas, and he became a dead man walking, a man they call a volunteer. 

Jarrett's crimes were unusual, involving the theft of precious Mayan antiquities. Murder was never part of the plan, but murder is what happened. He pulled the trigger, and as little as he feels prepared for it, as much as he struggles with matters of the soul, he's ready to die. It is the only way his family and the families of his victims will be free to move on. While Jarrett labors to find the words to say good-bye to those he has loved, Sophia finds herself drawn into a relationship with his wife and oldest son. It is Jarrett's family she can't resist and there will be a price to pay.

 But not even Sophia could have foreseen the outcome when the brutal truth is exposed, the unalloyed facts that, incredibly, will deliver Jarrett's fate straight into her hands. 

The Volunteer is a story about families, how they are made, and how in one single, horrifying instant, they can be broken. It is a story about mothers and the lies they tell to protect their children, to keep them from being hurt. But what happens when the truth comes out anyway and nothing and no one is spared? Sometimes the truth has the power to break your heart, and in Sophia's case it will also endanger her freedom and threaten everything she has ever believed about her life.

Many ghost hunters will recognize the chilling paranormal tales about Dudleytown, Connecticut that are woven into Dark Entry, a terrifying work of horror fiction. Hidden deep in the woods of rural Connecticut lives something sinister, an ancient supernatural terror that would claim as its own anyone that crosses its path. A scary story of suspense, murder, and ghosts, Dark Entry is a page-turner best read with the lights on.

Dark Entry is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places and incidents in the work are either products of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events or locales or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

This is the beginning of an atypical romance.
When artist Nate Wilson falls in love, he falls hard. The problem is, he’s only been in love once, and the girl of his affections is his best friend, Emi Hennigan. In high school, the two bonded over painful breakups, and swore off a relationship to save their friendship. Thirteen years later, Nate has had more than his share of emotionally-unfulfilling, sexual relationships with beautiful women to distract himself from his true romantic feelings. 

When a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity takes Nate away from his friend and his comfortable lifestyle, he is forced to reflect on the distinct void that Emi’s absence leaves in his life. To Nate’s surprise, Emi has a similar experience; but as the friends embark upon their journey toward happiness together, destiny reveals other plans for Emi.
