MARISSA FARRAR - WOMAN IN HORROR!


http://marissa-farrar.blogspot.com/


"Perhaps my need to write about the paranormal came from a desire to try to explain the unexplainable, though sometimes the horror in our lives isn’t in the paranormal. It can be in the abusive husband (Alone), the child dying of an illness (Underlife) or a controlling regime (The Followers). Don’t expect to find tons of gore in my books, I prefer the subtlety of the psychological." Marissa Farrar

 Marissa Farrar is my Woman In Horror today! I met Marissa back in the days of the old Vamplit site. A lot has happened since then. Marissa has branched out to publish her own books and is doing a great job. She has many loyal fans, myself being one of them. She truly loves her job. Would it not be wonderful if everyone could share her joy.

On her website, http://marissa-farrar.blogspot.com/, she not only gives links and cross links to other writers, but also has advice about marketing, in particular the Kindle KDP Select pros and cons. Read the great things she has to say, and find the links to her books.

Marissa is not only able to write about the Dark side of things, but she has a great talent with finding the human and, at times, romantic elements involved with even what appears to be the worst of the worst of life. And of death. 

Marissa's great novel Alone, the first in the Serenity series, is now up for free on most ebook sites. Don't wait too long and miss your chance to get this super read! 


Book Description

Book One in the Serenity Series.
.
Caught in a violent and abusive relationship, Serenity thinks there is no escape. On the day she fears her life can get no worse, she meets a stranger, Sebastian, who shows her the possibility of a different future. 

Only Sebastian has a dark secret; he is a vampire.

As Serenity's life takes a terrifying turn, she finds herself drawn into a world she never knew existed; one of murder, love and immortality.

Book Description

February 23, 2013
Ever since Lexi Harding’s four-year-old brother was snatched from his bed, Lexi has been afraid of the dark.

A reporter on her school newspaper, she is nervous about taking her editor’s assignment of heading into the old copper mines near her school – especially when she hears that eight miners went missing exactly one hundred years ago and today is Halloween.

Only the promise of being able to spend the evening with the mysterious and sexy Dylan Turner gets her to say yes. But when Dylan’s camera catches an eerie figure in one of the tunnels, and one of the group is dragged away by something unseen, Lexi has to wonder if she and Dylan will make it out alive.

Please note: 'Be Afraid of the Dark' is approximately 10,000 words in length or 40 print pages. It is not a full-length novel. This story is suitable for those aged 16+, but contains scenes that some younger readers may find frightening


Marissa's Amazon bio:

Marissa Farrar is a multi-published fantasy and horror author. She was born in Devon, England, has travelled all over the world, and has lived in both Australia and Spain. She now resides in the countryside with her husband, two children, a crazy Spanish dog, two rescue cats and six hens and ten goldfish. Despite returning to England, she daydreams of one day being able to split her time between her home country and the balmy, white sandy beaches of Spain.
Even though she's been writing stories since she was small and held dreams of being a writer, her initial life plan went a different way.
In her youth, inspired by James Herriot, she decided to become a vet, and would regularly bring home new pets to her weary parents. Upon discovering her exams were never going to get her into a veterinary degree, she ended up studying Zoology. Once she completed her degree and realised she'd spent the majority trying to find time to write, she decided to follow her dream of being an author. Seven years later, she was published and two years after that she was able to say goodbye to the day job.
However, she's continued to collect animals!
Marissa is the author of four novels, including the dark vampire 'Serenity' series. Her fifth novel, Underlife, a dark fantasy set beneath the streets of London, will be published August 2012.
Her short stories have been accepted for a number of anthologies including, Their Dark Masters, Red Skies Press, Masters of Horror: Damned If You Don't, Triskaideka Books; and 2013: The Aftermath, Pill Hill Press.
