When do you get your groceries? Think it matters? For Beth and her daughter, it does.
When Beth comes into Better Foods Friday night to purchase her weekly groceries, she finds herself face-to-face with a demon-woman with bulging eyes, and is forced to utilize the only item available in a locked grocery-store, and admits that her elderly neighbor’s warning was spot-on. How will she get her daughter and herself out before it's too late?
The rumor of a demonic old woman who makes people disappear is thought by many to be a back-firing publicity-stunt to draw customers, but Lawrence Herkles doesn’t pay any attention to rumors. He simply wants to rob Better Foods, and to shut his nagging wife up about feeding their family and paying the rent. When a commotion starts inside the store he’s trying to rob, Lawrence decides to take advantage of the opportunity until he too comes face-to-face with the monster who determined he’s the disrespectful man responsible months ago for causing her demise.
Not until the end is Beth’s unusual weapon revealed, yet a common one found on grocery store shelves.

Last Doorway Productions and Black Bed Sheet Books celebrate women in horror fiction again by partnering to bring another chilling, all-female horror anthology, A Scream in the Night 2!
Horror Host Miss Misery (Reyna Young) has for a second time brought together 13 stories that set stellar examples of female voices in horror today and the tales they have to tell, both up-and-coming and already established. The stories therein aren’t for the faint of heart and primarily for adults only who can withstand the explicit carnage and themes! From grocery store mayhem to medical nightmares, from within the decrepit walls of fixer-upper homes and within the trunks of cars and vampire bars, funeral events and macabre dinner parties, the reading journey you are to embark on promises to both utterly terrify, horribly shock, and afterwards leave you screaming for more, just like the first incredible volume!
