"The trick is not to fear the shadows but to embrace them… Night-time has become a good friend," says Justin.
But for how long?
Twenty-five-year-old insomniac Justin Brooks opens an all-night café. But soon after the opening, one of his customers is murdered.
The fallout from the murder makes his insomnia worse — much worse. He completely loses his ability to sleep.
Strange things start to happen, things that are hard to explain.
His eyes stream when it rains outside. Another café appears out of the fog, out of nowhere. Footsteps follow him everywhere. The dead person talks to him, though he knows it's not a ghost. And a magician waits for him, perched on a high wire, high up in the night sky.
Strange things indeed. But these strange things can't have anything to do with the murder.
Café Insomniac is a highly imaginative story from a unique voice. Nobody who visits Café Insomniac can ever look at the world in the same way again.
"I don't know what's real and what isn't — and which is most dangerous."
Cafe Insomniac will be available for download from 4 September at Amazon, Kobo, iBookstore.
