The Internet has brought us all closer to together. Strangers are just a click away. But despite all the risks, sometimes love can blossom amid the chaos. Every day, millions of people find the one they were meant to be with, their soul mate, their one true love.

But on the Internet, where anyone can pretend to be someone or something other than what they really are, the only thing more dangerous than trust, is love.

In this sequel to the popular short story OFFLINE, and presented as a transcript of Facebook messages in the wake of tragedy, this time the communication leaves the confines of the Internet world, and we are shown what happens when two strangers connected by burgeoning love, meet each other IN THE FLESH.

Praise for OFFLINE:

“There was not one moment where I doubted that I could very well be reading real transcripts of a conversation between two High School students. Once again, Burke reeled me in, and forced me to read the whole story in one sitting, something I rarely ever do. In a perfect world, Kealan Patrick Burke would be sitting atop the bestseller lists..." - Horror World

"A great, short, and addictive read, Offline is a fantastic introduction to a brilliant author and his ability to write in many different styles. Burke has a very clearly defined voice in the genre, and goes ample distances to entertain the reader. This is a must have for all of you social media junkies out there." - Dreadful Tales

"The story is told through the transcripts of "Josh" and "Mandy's" online conversations on a certain social networking site. This style adds bits and pieces of wonderful "ah ha" moments to the reader slowly, and that really adds to the tension of wanting to find out what is going to happen as a result of this online relationship. The easy chatting style is all too familiar... and the creep factor may be too, but hopefully not. I felt like a voyeur going through someone's chat history at times, and I enjoyed every minute of it." - Horror Drive-In

4.0 Offline: In The Flesh by Kealan Patrick Burke
Stranger danger doesn't get much stranger.Burke delivers the unexpected in this lean, mean, stripped down little shocker of a short story that would translate into one Hell of a radio play.

4.0 In the Flesh, Offline: Part II
This was a nice, short tale, (very few short stories these days are actually short, have you noticed that?), about how different from their online personae people can be. Fun and fast, I recommend this tale to fans of well written short stories.
