The Monster Man of Horror House

by Danny King

1771e-addtogoodreadsblack

Local oddball, John Coal is the town oddball. Old, crotchety, pungent and solitary, he lives in a scary old house that is almost as rundown as he and sees out his days shuffling around the streets harvesting his neighbours’ skips for scrap.

The local kids take great delight in plaguing him morning, noon and night but they’ve chosen the wrong old coot to mess with because John Coal is no ordinary man. He knows where the bodies are buried. He’s been to the outer limits. He is a keeper of dark secrets. Murder, monsters, demons and bi-polar vampires, he has seen them all and lived to tell the tale.

Now, if he is to rid himself of his woes he must dig into the deepest recesses of his past and use these terrible experiences to convince his tormentors he’s not just an old man to be pushed around.

He is John Coal – the Monster Man of Horror House.

 Spooky Short Stories

by Kathryn Meyer Griffith

1771e-addtogoodreadsblack

Four contemporary spooky short stories:

Ghost Brother…
So what happens after you die? Do you go to heaven, or hell? Or do you go to a special place fashioned just for you based on the life you’d lived in the real world? Based on how you treated people? What you did to them?
And do ghosts exist? Do they roam the earth and plague the living, persuade them to do things they shouldn’t do?
Two brothers and their tale follow; their journey through life and death.
Do you believe in ghosts? Some do.

Running with the Train…
Sarah has always been lonely. Searching for a love she’s begun to believe will never come. Her family and friends depend, need her…but they can’t give her what she wants. True, eternal love. Like the wolves have.
So she goes on an adventure of a lifetime to the Grand Canyon; rides the train from Williams to the South Rim and sees these huge wolves running alongside in the evening twilight; scurrying unbelievably below on the Canyon’s ledges among the trees. She’s told there are no wolves but she hears their haunting cries. No one else sees or hears them. Just her.
Has her loneliness made her crazy?

The Banshee and the Witch…
What would you do to live forever, stay young forever? To find true love again?
And if you were a white witch with the magical powers to make it happen…and the secret of how to do it, would you?
So when the banshee comes calling for you one rainy dark night you’ll do what you have to do to get what you desire the most. More time.

Too Close to the Edge…
Artist Penelope had been looking forward to going with her husband, sister and brother-in-law to see the Grand Canyon…even though she was terrified of heights and, when she got there, couldn’t bear to get too close to the edge. She watched people balancing on one foot, acting foolish, taking photos, oblivious of the death waiting below them. It scared her.
Especially when a woman relates a story of a small child that fell into the Canyon the day before. Over the edge.
Then she sees a young girl go over the rim and no one will believe her.
For there was no child that had died–that day anyway.
Was she seeing things that weren’t there, or was there another explanation?

Cold Blood

by Donna Ansari

1771e-addtogoodreadsblack

As the winter holiday season descends on New York City, vampire Emma Hammond is anticipating celebrating with Tammy and David, her witch and werewolf roommates. But when an odd Christmas ornament unleashes waves of the undead from her neighborhood graveyard, Emma finds herself as an unwilling shield between ravenous zombies and an unsuspecting city. Even worse, despite having everyday dealing with supernatural creatures, Emma finds that she has an unnatural aversion to the shambling dead, and must get to their source and stop the invasion before she’s forced to cancel her holiday party!

(Fields of Elysium #1)

by A.B. Whelan

December 12th 2012 by InMotion Capitol 

 

Summary:

How can love mend a heart full of

hate?

Small town girl, Molly Bennett, moves to Los Angeles

where she becomes an outsider while attending Beverly Hills High School. It

seems life cannot be any more dreadful. Then one day after school, something

magical happens. On a secluded hike in the Hollywood Hills, Molly chases her

disobedient mutt and only friend into a hidden cavern. She stumbles upon a

strange glimmering gateway that transports her to Arkana, a planet that is the

cradle of an advanced human race. There, teenagers navigate amazing flying

vehicles, compete in perilous games for glory, and possess supernatural powers.

While Molly tries to wrap her mind around this unbelievable discovery, she meets

the alluring and mysterious Victor Sorren. He is a Sentinel Apprentice, whose

hatred toward people from Earth is beyond understanding. Yet every time Victor

unpredictably saves Molly’s life, his heart draws closer to hers, no matter how

much he tries to fight against it. It further complicates things that their

growing friendship is strictly forbidden. Earth people are prohibited in Arkana,

yet Molly continues to cross through the portal to Arkana to see Victor. Torn

between their double lives, they go down a dangerous path, from where there is

no return and multiple endings.

 

Fields of Elysium is a suspenseful romantic tale full of

forbidden secrets, danger, deception, and the never-ending fight for true

love.

and purpose again.

Victor tries to convince Molly to move to his village

A. B. Whelan

 

I’m a Hungarian born American writer, who was lucky

enough to travel Europe, Africa, and The Middle East and live in Ecuador, Crete

and Italy. I graduated as a computer engineer, thus if anybody

tells you math and literature can’t walk hand in hand, don’t believe them.

*smile*

 

I’m the author of the Fields of Elysium saga, which I

like to call a young adult romantic fantasy. The first book of the series was

inspired by amazing movies like Dirty Dancing, Avatar, and Twilight and earned

praise from prestigious review companies and readers. I’m currently working on

book three and four, and planning to write two more novellas to finish the

series, dedicated to two very interesting characters in my story, Victor Sorren,

the byronic hero, and The Prophet, the mysterious leader of the Arkanians.

COVER REVEAL

SECTION 51 and DEPARTMENT 51

PROJECT SOLSTICE SERIES

Section 51 book cover-final LG

Adult Science Fiction by VG Harrison

Section 51 (Book #1) will be released November 12, 2013

Empath Ava Frost is searching for her triplet brother, Ian, who’s disappeared without a trace. When she learns he’s been murdered and his death covered up, she also discovers a terrifying secret that could endanger billions of people across the planet…

Skinwalkers, vampires, and werewolves – the entire supernatural world, in fact – are the result of breeding between humans and aliens who crash-landed on earth thousands of years ago. Now, Section 51 is a super top-secret facility dedicated to splicing alien genes with human ones to create an unstoppable army of soldiers.

Determined to hunt down her brother’s killer, Ava inadvertently becomes the target of Colonel Briggs, the megalomaniac in charge of Section 51. He has plans for Ava’s unique abilities…plans that would give him the key to world domination. And if she doesn’t unravel the mystery Ian left behind, Briggs will splice it out of her as well as her last surviving brother.

 dept 51 book cover - final LG

Department 51 (Book #2) will be released November 12, 2013

Ava Frost has spent the past three months mourning the death of her brother, Ian, but now she’s facing criminal charges from Department 51 – charges that could put her in federal prison for the rest of her life unless she accepts their “work-release” deal.

She can hardly stand working for the organization she blames for the death of her brother, yet while on the Department 51 base, she makes a chilling discovery… a sentient, complex computer program called Ian 2 has been imprinted with her brother’s anagrams. More shocking, the computer is linked to her brain, sharing the same organic metal as her cybernetic implant.

Department 51 wants her to disable Ian 2, but when an alien craft threatens the Earth, Ava discovers her brother’s computer program may be the only key to deciphering the invaders’ intentions. Can she use Ian 2 to stop the alien invasion? Or will she be forced to save herself when a band of supernaturals try to remove her implant and Ian 2 can’t reach her?

About the Author

Science ficiton has been my love since I was a little kid who purposely tried to stay up at 11pm to watch Star Trek. When Star Wars hit the scene, I would’ve given anything–even pay a total stranger–to watch it everyday at the movie theatre. Of course, my parents would’ve yanked me out of my seat by the scruff of my neck. But…my all-time favorite is Alien 2. And here I thought Alien wouldn’t be topped.

So what does any of this have to do with my writing and me? Well, I’ve been writing for a few years now and even though I watch a lot of sci-fi, I don’t read it nearly as much of it as I do paranormal. So, it made sense to combine the two and come up with my Project Solstice series.

Between the day job, family, and enjoying life as a North Carolinian implant, I’m catching up on episodes of The Walking Dead, Dr. Who, and Teen Wolf (it’s a guilty pleasure–honest). Of course, it helps when you own seasons of Firefly, Stargate, and Battlestar Galactica on DVD. As for Defiance, I’m really trying to get into it. So far, so meh.

I’m so ready for some alien reading!

I just can’t ever get enough of otherworldly beings.  Just picture this!

alien soldiers photo: Alien soldiers Chris Lazzer alien_soldiers_by_chrislazzer.jpg

This is what I envision when I think of aliens coming to Earth. Very disturbing, eh?

So, do you believe in aliens? Do you think they are watching us or may already be among us?

One thing I feel for sure. If they do come, I don’t think they’ll be bringing us the cure for cancer or anything good. They’ll come for food (meaning us!) or for our resources.

Just sayin!

Beasty Blitz

I admit it. The first thing that attracts me to a book is its cover.

The cover has to cause a reaction, whether funny, visually dazzling, or I have to know what it is intriguing.

The Beasty Series has me thinking how awesome these characters would look on the big screen.

Then I dug deeper and discovered these are about a cursed man, spirits of the dead that possess people and walk among us, and a woman with a broken heart and the weight of the world on her shoulders.

Sounds like a Blockbuster!

Great news too!

I have a fun giveaway.

For seven days he has no choice but to roam the earth as a vicious animal, until he meets a woman who can change it all.

Luna Grace has a hatred for everything Gabriel Slade stands for, but she doesn’t even know what he looks like. When a chance encounter reveals feelings Luna never knew she harbored, it stands to reason that she would run.

Can Luna overcome her hatred and break the curse? Or will Gabriel’s temper keep her from realizing her true feelings, dooming him to remain the beast forever?

Release Date October 1, 2013

Meet FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.

She’s cursed. He’s damned. Together, they make one hell of a team. Emma Monroe is a Siren, cursed by the gods and bound to earth to atone for an ancient failure. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now that she works missing persons cases for the FBI, it could be just a rescue away. Unless her new partner leads her astray.

Special Agent Zack Armstrong just transferred into the San Diego Field Office. He’s a werewolf, doing his best to beat back the demons from his dark and dangerous past. As a former Black Ops sniper, he’s taken enough lives. Now he’s doing penance by saving them.

Emma and Zack’s very first case draws them deep into the realm of the paranormal and forces them to use their own supernatural abilities. But that leaves each of them vulnerable, and there are lines partners should not cross. As secrets are revealed and more women go missing, one thing becomes clear: as they race to save the victims, Emma and Zack risk losing themselves.

Welcome to My Monday Minis.

This is where I review very short stories and flash fiction.

For today I’ll be telling you about The Devil’s Walk

by Brian Harmon

The Devil's Walk

goodreads-badge-add-plus

Carl Delsh is dying. He’s lived a long time and he’s ready to join his love who went 20 years ago.

His granddaughter and great granddaughter sit vigil as his time draws near.

In one of his last lucid moments, he tells his granddaughter, Amanda, about the tall man with long white hair who murdered his best friend Lonnie so many years ago.

This would be the perfect story to tell late at night, sitting in the woods, surrounded by trees, and the only light comes from the sputtering fire you sit around.

You’d be looking over your shoulder, squinting into the darkness.

Did something linger in the dark? Is someone peering back at you?

You’d be waiting from someone to yell Boo! You’d just want the suspense to end.

That’s how this story unfolds. Slowly gaining momentum and building in suspense.

This is not a ghost story. It’s a cautionary tale. And a really creepy one.

The Shadow’s Son by Nicole R. Taylor

Series: The Witch Hunter Saga #3

Publication date:  August 1, 2013

Genre: NA / 17+ Urban Fantasy

Synopsis:

I am the oldest vampire alive and I am the most feared. Wherever I walk, death follows. The downtrodden have the fiercest fire inside of them. Those are the  vampires I want by my side. The pain they have been through only fuels  their thirst for blood. Those I would ask to kill for me, simply because they bask in the glow of their true nature. The nature I created in my  own image. We are each our own devil and this world is our hell. I was the first of six and now I am the last. My revenge has only just begun. You better start praying, because I’m coming for you first.
*
When a mysterious stranger from Aya’s past shows up in Ashburton it’s not  all good news. Tristan, a man she saved almost a thousand years ago,  brings a warning that will affect not just her, but her new family. Regulus is coming. To protect Zac, Aya has to destroy the best thing that has ever happened  to her. She has to pretend that their love has been a lie. But, is it  really the right thing to do? Aya travels to the other side of the  world with Tristan to learn the secret behind Zac’s blood and to hunt  down Regulus before he can find them first. Tristan is her way into the  Roman’s circle, but she might just find that both her quests are more  linked than she ever thought possible. Heartbroken again, Zac must  surrender to the darkest places inside himself if he ever hopes of  coming back. Even if that means aligning himself with his greatest  enemy. Even if that means turning his back on everything he’s worked for and walking away from his brother, Sam. Lovers are torn apart,  friends are pitted against each other and families are splintered. But,  what they find buried under the streets of London will change everything they’ve ever known about their world. Something that should have been  left alone.
But, what Regulus does is the most unexpected of all.

The witch she has been hunting for thousands of years, Katrin, has resurfaced and marked a young, annoyingly arrogant vampire by the name of Zachary Degaud. Unless she does something, he will die a slow and painful death. He has given her an opportunity to end the witch, but does she want to help him or leave him to his fate?
Zac will get under her skin like no one else has and she just might find herself making the ultimate sacrifice before he is gone forever. They will both have to choose sides and look deep within themselves before the end. But, what Zac learns about himself, will surprise him most of all.

I’ve wandered my afterlife believing that I was the monster my maker told me I was. It was the only thing I knew. Not even my brother, Sam, could convince me otherwise. Not until her. Not until Aya. She walked into my life like a hurricane of destruction and nothing would ever be the same again. None of us could have known what would happen next. What fate had in store…
I finally grew a heart, only to have it ripped out. Now, I will stop at nothing for revenge. Zac’s afterlife is just going from bad to worse. He grew a heart only to have it torn out by the founding vampire, Arturius. Nobody is sure what he wants, but Zac doesn’t want to know. He’s more interested in finding a way to end him for good. But, it might just be that he’s after Gabby, who’s harbouring a secret of her own, one that Arturius would do anything for.Aya’s past will come back to haunt Zac in ways he never thought possible and what he finds out will alter everything he ever knew about her. He will uncover a deadly secret that should have remained buried. A secret Aya has fought to keep for thousands of years. One she has killed for.
In the end, who’s secrets will betray them to the one man who wants them all dead? Aya’s or Zac’s? They’ll need to figure it out sooner rather than later, because death is not an option.

My tease for today is from Extinct by Ike Hamill

Extinct

A black shape up the street caught his eye. The falling snow made it hard to see past the end of the driveway, but that black mass hadn’t been there before, he was sure of that. Robby kept shoveling, but kept his eyes trained on the shape.When he flicked the shovel to throw the snow, his hood pulled to the right, blocking his vision. When his hood came back to center, the shape moved closer.

Robby backed towards the garage door. He had closed the big door so more snow wouldn’t drift into the garage. The path to the back porch sat under a foot of powder. The black shape shifted, right before his eyes. It moved to the end of the driveway. It stood tall in front and trailed off towards the back, like a…..

Cover Reveal - SOMEONE ELSE'S SKYE Banner

I love doing cover reveals

It’s always exciting to finally see it and to discover if it is anything like you imagined it would be.

With Someone Else’s Skye, Men of Brahm Hill, Book 1, I kind of figured it would be a sexy hunk of manflesh.

What’s really great is we get to see a face.

I don’t mind book covers that reveal some yummy abs and low slung jeans. Believe me!

But it’s nice to see a bit of the chiseled face too.

Now, I’m wondering what color his eyes are, and I swear, I was expecting him to open those eyes and gaze at me at any moment.

This cover art is amazing and so life-like I swear he’s going to look up!

So, what color do you think his eyes are?

He looks deep in thought. What is he thinking about?

SOMEONE ELSE’S SKYE

Men of Brahm Hill, Book 1

 

Coming October 1, 2013

Kane, Brethren Guardian and one of the few Natural Shape-Shifters left in existence, survived the bloody battle of Brahm Hill but lost two of his closest friends. For all of his good-natured sarcasm and eye-popping good looks, Kane finds himself unable to completely forget about that night, so he seeks comfort in the one thing he is truly good at . . . sex!

This shape-shifting bad boy believes in having a good time—a very good time, usually involving some mingled heavy breathing with a sexy Dhampir in a tiny closet somewhere. But when he’s sent into the freezing tundra of the Northwest Territories to investigate a troublesome supernatural being on the loose, he ends up crossing paths with a woman who almost instantly drives him insane with want . . . because she doesn’t seem to be falling for the shifter’s charms.

It’s completely inexplicable.

Skye Matthews has a job to do, and she needs to be focused on that, not spending all her time rebuffing the advances of this way-too-cocky and handsome stranger. Yet, there is something irresistible about this self-involved playboy that Skye can’t seem to stay away from. And when the unidentified Kane is sent to investigate takes an unnatural interest in her, protecting her becomes the Guardian’s top priority.
