I’m pleased to share that I’m taking part in the enormous free horror book giveaway going on today, Terrify Your Tablet! This is an event organized by the amazing folks at Horrorsmith Publishing where a bunch of authors and pubishers have made their horror and dark fantasy books free for a single day this Halloween!
As part of this, you can also grab a FREE copy of my book The Seeking! A science fiction horror with monsters set around Halloween, it’s a perfect read for this time of the year.
Each Seeking, the magic that protects the town of Carra must be renewed, which means the children of the Exalted Family must go into hiding. Whether through disguise or bribe, through trusted friends or perfect hiding places, every child of the Priest family must avoid capture for the full day of The Seeking.
When things go wrong with the renewal, it’s up to seventeen-year-old Dahlia, the middle child of the Priest family, and her girlfriend, Bisa, to escape Carra and find the magical beings responsible for the protection. They must learn who would require such a cruel game every year and if the protection of the Gray People is really worth such a price.
The Darkest Lullaby is an anthology full of suspense and horror. You’ll not want to miss this heart-pounding collection if you loved Survive the Night by Riley Sager, works by Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Joe Hill, or American Horror Story.
Six authors come together to bring to life thrilling and heart-pounding horror stories of nannies and their wards, creating something unsettling that will haunt the reader long after they’ve finished reading!
A governess is plagued by nightmares of her own death each night—but are they mere dreams? Atrocities of the past collide with the future for a nighttime nanny. Secrets surrounding a castle are murderous for a caregiver. A failed witch’s apprentice must take up her late aunt’s babysitting shift at a terrifying house. For one babysitter, discovering the truth about a local house, and her ward, comes with a hefty price. An unsuspecting young woman gets more than she bargained for when she takes on a nannying job… for a doll.
“It is not every day you come across stories that have been marinated in suspense, cooked in gore, and finished up in an intriguing fashion that creates a horror story. […] The notable aspect of this collections the way each author takes the ordinary and pushes it to the edge of reason in such a manner that will make the reader question the very essence of logic when attempting to solve these puzzles.
The Darkest Lullaby is a horror masterpiece in its purest form.”
A crew of women sail the dark waters of the Adriatic Sea. They have no past, no future, and live only in the present.
We follow Jaq, a woman who serves as part of the crew on the Scylla. They pull a sunburned man out of the ocean. Jaq’s girlfriend, Lily, becomes smitten with the man and leaves Jaq for him, blatantly showing off their relationship to the entire crew. Jealousy grows within Jaq as the man brings bad luck to the ship along with terrible memories she had long forgotten.
A story that weaves dark folklore and wicked fantasy into a horrific tale filled with heartbreak, loss, and the enigmatic mystery of the crew’s existence. I was instantly drawn in to this surreal and disturbing world.
This is the first I’ve read of Knowles’ work and I look forward to reading more from her!
This book releases on November 14th from Brigid’s Gate Press. Make sure you pre-order your copy and prepare for a beautifully written sapphic tale of dark folklore.
A dystopian sci-fi that blew me away. I fell in love with our four main leads. I came to know them so well, I knew their dress, their habits, and their personalities. My heart broke for them and the horrible situation they find themselves in, caged and forced to have no free will. Even though I didn’t agree with their actions all the time, it made sense for them. It was understandable considering all the trauma they’ve been through.
An absolutely incredible first book in a three part series, I was drawn in from the first few pages. Once I hit the halfway point, I simply couldn’t put it down! This is the first time I’ve had the privilege of reading Auerbach’s work, but it certainly won’t be the last. With familiar dystopian elements such as genetic engineering, a vague war between nations, and forms of recruitment that include kidnapping, as a fan of dystopian novels, this book was a joy. The Sin Soldiers contains hallmarks from some of my favorite dystopian sci-fi novels such as Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451, and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.
Needless to say, I can’t wait to read the next book!
I’m excited to share that for the first time, you can get the entire Stolen series collected into a single book. Coming in at over a thousand pages, this new release includes Stolen, Broken, and Chosen from the Stolen series. It also includes a short story featuring Mawr, the Living Statue, titled “Protector of Dreams”.
The Stolen Series can now be picked up from your favorite online retailer for slightly less than buying the books individually. Step into a fantastic world with unforgettable characters.
“The writing style is so unique and gripping that the reader will quickly lose track of time while being immersed in the complexities of this enchanting new world.”
