SAMHAIN - AND - BEAUTY - LATEST STORIES BY LORI. R. LOPEZ - WOMAN IN HORROR!


Lori R. Lopez, a Woman In Horror, is getting a jump on Halloween with the tale Samhain. Also, she has just published Beauty as well. I bought both of these great stories. Reviews to come!




Samhain

Book Description

August 15, 2014
Daren Karl has an aversion to Halloween. When his sister asks him to take his nephew Trick-Or-Treating, he must overcome deep-rooted fears to survive a stressful night that becomes eerily familiar. The secrets of a murky past return to the surface to the point of rocking his entire existence. What is he willing to give up?

From the author of "3-Z", "Next Door", "Horrendus", "Monstrosities" AN ILL WIND BLOWS and more, "Samhain" is another treat in the bag of Halloween goodies by Lori R. Lopez.









Book Description

August 20, 2014
A dormant girl named Beauty, who controls and terrifies the people around her, wants to possess another girl. Quiet, don’t wake her up or there will be Hell to pay!

It was one of those tasteless roadside attractions but with a twist, a fairytale theme. The Ache Family could not have imagined what trouble stopping for food and gas might result in during their very first vacation trip. Let sleeping girls lie. That was what they should have done. Sadly, they never seemed to do anything quite right. Inspired by SLEEPING BEAUTY, presented from multiple perspectives, this humorous horror tale by the author of CHOCOLATE-COVERED EYES and THE FAIRY FLY allows you to peek inside the heads of an average quirky family.

Lori R. Lopez wears many hats, literally and otherwise. She is an artist who designs her book covers and illustrates some of her tomes. As an author she writes poems, short stories, novels, children's books and songs, as well as a humorous-slash-serious column called "Poetic Reflections" at Fairy Fly Entertainment. She is a musician, actress, filmmaker, tree-hugger and animal-lover. A vegetarian, her work often contains themes of conservation, animal rights, and the rights of children. Lori unapologetically takes pride in creatively bending and reshaping the rules of writing when it suits her style.
A horror fan since small, she roamed graveyards as a kid and conducted funerals for dead birds, squirrels, insects and spiders. Lori has received various honors for her novels THE FAIRY FLY and AN ILL WIND BLOWS.
