Pause, then the bruise time
For a moment the world pauses, freezes in place. When it begins again, all but a handful of people are dead. The few survivors of this cataclysm must first find each other and then work to create a new world in the ruins of the old.
But something else has survived the pause. Something rooted in the darkest heart of every person.

They call it the pause.
For a moment the world pauses, freezes in place. When it begins again, all but a handful of humans are dead. The few survivors of this cataclysmic mystery must first find each other and then work to create a new world in the ruins of the old.
They come from all walks of life in the previous world. And now, after the pause, and in what they will come to call the bruise time, they have to work together and learn to trust each other enough to stay alive.
But one among them holds a secret so terrible, a darkness so deep, that not even the pause could keep it from rising up into the new world.
And now, as they fight to find their way in the bruise time, this secret could mean the end of the new beginning for all of them.
A cross between The Stand and Dexter, "pause, then the bruise time" is a dark, sexy, violent and often comic exploration of the human will to survive and the deepest, darkest depths of the human heart.
