From Terri DelCampo:

"Check out the trailer for my brand new novel, "James Reborn" ! Beverly Cialone produces my trailers and never ceases to amaze me."

James Reborn is Terri DelCampo's most horrifying novel yet! The book trailer certainly spells that out. I love the choice of music that Beverly Cialone chose. 3 Shades Of Black, by Hank Williams III is perfect. 

Take a look and a listen. I bet you'll love it too.

Book description:

 Meet Sarah Killian, a professional serial killer (for hire!) with a twisted sense of humor.

Sarah Killian is not your average thirty year-old single woman. Foul-mouthed, mean-spirited, and a text-book-case loner. Also, she is a Professional Serial Killer.

In this Crime Fiction / Thriller novel with a twisted sense of humor, Sarah works for T.H.E.M. (Trusted Hierarchy of Everyday Murderers), a secret organization of murderers for hire headed up by the mysterious Zeke. You’ll be surprised to learn who their biggest clients are. Conspiracy theories, anyone?

But a wrench is thrown into the clockwork of Sarah's comfortable lifestyle when, on her latest assignment, she is forced to take on an apprentice, Bethany—a bubbly, perky, blonde with a severe case of verbal-vomit. In short, Bethany is everything Sarah is not.

Will Sarah be able to adjust and work with her new apprentice, or will she break her contract with T.H.E.M. and murder the buxom bimbo?

So if you’re looking for a strong female lead that doesn’t care what you think, in a book similar to the best of Dean Koontz and J.A. Konrath, then look no further than Sarah Killian – Serial Killer (For Hire).

Just don’t call her an ‘assassin.’ You might not live long enough to regret it.

W. J. Howard is back this week with a review of the TV show Preacher. I haven't seen the show yet, but W. J. 's review is rather intriguing. Take a peek at what she says and decide if it's a good match for your tastes. Don't forget to look at the side bar on the left and see what her favorite Best Low-rated Zombie Movies are.

I have another post about W. J. on the way, but that deserves it's own post.

Happy trails, my friends!

Club Blaze, published by Arcane Whispers Press, is in the editing stage now. Zack Kullis, owner and publisher of Arcane Whispers Press, and yours truly, will be co-authoring this bad boy of extreme horror.

Nothing is sacred in this tome. The world is filled with horrific bastards. You will find out about them when you read Club Blaze. This collection of short stories will be novel length. Read a tale or more before you go to sleep for the night. Sleep is over-rated anyway. Make certain you have plenty of fresh linens for your bed because cold sweat will permeate every fiber of your sheets. Your mind will shudder in fear, while at the same time begging that you read more.

Get ready, those who lurk in the dark!

DARKFUSE #1 has six new tales of horror from some very talented authors. DarkFuse is pricing this for free for a short time so get your copy now!

Blaze McRob

Book description:

 The premier volume of DarkFuse's anthology series, featuring 6 original tales of dark fiction.

"She Sleeps in the Depths" by William Meikle

"Better Heard and Not Seen" by Michael Penkas

"Carrion Fowl" by William R. Eakin

"Jaws of Life" by E. G. Smith

"Netherview" by Gary McMahon

"Children of the Horned God" by Christopher Fulbright

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In DarkFuse's first short story anthology, we are presented with six different tales, by six different authors. I found these stories to be unique to themselves (no central theme linking them), which worked quite well for me, as I love being "surprised" by what kind of story I'm getting into.

Notable favorites for myself include: "Better Heard and Not Seen", by Michael Penkas. Childhood fears and intense atmosphere really brought this story alive, and it will be one that I will definitely be returning to! (Admission: I've already read it 3 times now....;) ). William Meikle, a true genius in just about any story he writes, contributes "She Sleeps in the Depths". I am especially a fan of his tales near the water, with a distinctive "Lovecraftian" feel. "The Jaws of Life", by E. G. Smith was another that I really enjoyed. Although it was somewhat predictable in terms of the situation presented, the execution was phenomenal, and really had the power to draw me completely into the tale. I really enjoyed the beginning to Gary McMahon's "Neverview", but it just seemed to come to an abrupt end--without any sort of resolution...

All of this being said, I have high expectations for future DarkFuse anthologies!

Format: Kindle Edition
I'm not a huge fan of mixed anthologies. I prefer one author to write them all otherwise you never know what you're ending up with. Darkfuse's first anthology proves my point. It's definitely a mixed bag of great to bad stories. Fortunately this was gifted to me by a very good friend so I think it was money well spent.

She Sleeps in the Depths - William Meikle - 4 stars
The softer side of Willie Meikle. He's one of my favorite authors and I'd never turn down a chance to read one of his stories.

Better Heard and Not Seen - Michael Penkas - 5 stars
I'd never read him before. This was old fashioned creep you out horror at it's best. A must read.

Carrion Fowl - William Eakin - 3 stars
It was OK, not really my style.

Jaws of Life - E.G. Smith - 3 stars
Ok, but predictable.

Netherview - Gary McMahon - 2 stars
I really like reading Gary's work, but this upset me. This read like the beginning of a novel. It simply ended. I felt cheated. I have a feeling we'll be seeing this one later in another format. I don't like when authors do that and won't support them.

Children of the Horned God - Christopher Fulbright - 4 stars
A mix of SF/horror that I liked a lot.

So do the math and that averages out to 3.5 stars. It's easy to toss that low one out and round up to 4 stars and recommend this anthology. I just hope that Darkfuse #2 is single author or even dual author. I think that would be much more appealing.
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Most short story collections are hit or miss with the stories. However, in this one, they're all quite good! I love short story collections that involve different authors since they're an excellent way to sample different authors in one collection. This collection included two authors that are among my favorites (they didn't disappoint!) and the chance to try some authors that I've never read before (also good!). I recommend giving this one a try - you're sure to find something you like (probably all of the stories!).

Blaze McRob

Book description:

 An Imajin Qwickies® Horror Novella

In an abandoned construction site sits a monstrous pit designed to spawn the tallest building in the U.S., the Chicago Spire. But the pit now harbors something far more sinister…

Detective Aubrey (Brie) Hamilton and her team of retired detectives, the Old Fart Squad, are called in to investigate the disappearance of people and pets who have wandered too close to the gaping hole. When a mother and child come forward with film footage of the pit, Brie, Wiz, Reggie and the others realize that whatever lurks at the bottom is something otherworldly—and dangerous.

Armed with a special weapon, Brie’s team of unsung heroes descends into the hellish abyss and its tunnels and come face-to-face with nightmarish creatures.
Can the Old Fart Squad succeed where SWAT and the National Guard have failed? And what exactly dwells deep within what locals call “The Monster Pit”?
