LISA MCCOURT HOLLAR - WOMAN IN HORROR!

Lisa McCourt Hollar is my Woman In Horror today! As you can see below, Lisa is a busy lady. She is not only an author, but she formats, edits, is the Children's Books Director at Visionary Press Collaborative, and is the President there.

I am honored to have edited some of Lisa's books and have read other books she has written,  so I have a great idea of what her best work is. In my humble opinion at any rate.

Lisa has come a long ways in a relatively short time, getting better with each story. Good writing comes with experience. It does not jump on the scene immediately and take hold. She has evolved to the point where her ducks are all in a row. Her best work is yet to come, even after 48 books.

Her best book? Reawkening, a fantasy/horror tale. This superb tale is doing very well.


Book Description

December 1, 2014
Francine has not only discovered that there is a paranormal world around her, one that includes angels, werewolves, witches, and evil spirits, (along with a few good,) but that she was born into that world. Why was this kept a secret from her for the last 16 years? What happened to her parents when she was 3? Did they really die in a tragic car accident, or was it something more? And what is with this new hunger she has?
 
5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book January 1, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book. If you are into the supernatural and like vampires, werewolves, a good plot and some great twists this is a book for you. I could not stop reading it once I picked it up. Two thumbs up for Lisa McCourt Hollar. I look forward to reading more by this author! 
 
5.0 out of 5 stars Mythological Variation January 11, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I love reading paranormal/supernatural books, especially when the book changes or does something different to the typical myths that we all know so well. It was great to see that instead of a vampire being created by an exchange of blood, it was three bites. Not only that, I loved that the author acknowledged the bond this creates between sire and newling/child (however you prefer to see it)! I even liked how a werewolf existed and there was not a natural "you are the enemy" between the werewolf and vampire just because of what they were. It was wonderful to see how a supernatural being could be more than one thing at a time - Francine who is a born witch (and doesn't know about her power) gets turned into a vampire to save her life. The first time she is bitten by Hunter (ironic name for a vampire, I know and I love it!) she sees a glow that she associates with vampires (thank you Twilight) and Joseph (an angel) makes a remarkably hilarious comment related to Twilight. I won't spoil the whole story, so take a peek because I think it's worth it. I look forward to the next book in the series.

As you can see, her fans love this book. I loved it too when I did the edits. The best part? There is more to come.
 
Dreams Of The Damned is another wonderful tale, a very original Zombie story.

Book Description

April 6, 2014
The undead cross paths with a psychopath. Dennis is haunted by his failings; his mother, father and wife were killed by the zombies that have infested the world and they blame him. Locked in the basement, his family haunts his dreams and even his waking hours.

Brought to you by the author of The Second Wave: A Post-Apocalyptic Tale, Dreams Of The Damned takes the reader deep into the apocalypse where all your worst nightmares will come true.
 
5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Read For Zombiephiles! May 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A few sidenotes first...I think this is the beginning of a new series - at least, I hope so because there are a lot of loose ends leading to even more questions. I also think the author should consider re-releasing this story as a full-length novel. There are a LOT of characters, action scenes and plot twists within these 44 pages. The author could simply flesh it out more (no pun intended) and easily fill another hundred pages just by extending the existing scenes.

As for the story, it is excellent. There is a great mix of characters. There are several elements of other genres woven into the horror of this apocalyptic struggle for survival...and BEST OF ALL, readers will be shocked by this new breed of zombie!

Definitely in the Top Ten Of Zombie Stories for 2014!
 
5.0 out of 5 stars Very exciting May 17, 2014

This one was a great tease for a reader as the story doesn't give up everything until near the end. stick with it as it hops around a bit. it will come together very nicely for you in the end and it is absolutely worth the read. I read this one all at once and sadly it ended all too soon but it was a great read.
you have multiple characters in this story and each has their own point of view. it is a little non linear which worked out very well in the story. the apocalypse is well under way and zombies roam the Earth eating people but the people are sometimes just as bad as the zombies, or possibly worse. each survivor has their own little story and backstory and those stories mingle and come together in a great way.
 
                                                           *    *    *    *
 
This is another story that will have sequels. I love series when the stories are this great.
 
Sam, a story of a Zombie goldfish and his friend is a definite classic. I loved this the first time I read it and like the extended story even more.

Book Description

September 4, 2014
Sam is dead. Tommy, his best friend, wants him back. Sam might only be a goldfish, but he is the only friend the neglected boy has. When Mama Tasha casts a spell to bring Sam back to life, things get a little strange and Sam develops a decidedly, un-fishlike appetite.

Extended ending included.
 
5.0 out of 5 stars Scary fish! May 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
My husband suggested I read this and I'm glad I did. Sam's a zombie fish but it's not a virus that brings him back; it's voodoo. That alone made me take notice. If you want a quick scare then Sam is it! Sam is well written and held my attention from start to finish! Good job, Ms. Hollar!
 
5.0 out of 5 stars Rather poignant, in an eerie way March 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Admittedly, I offered to design the cover in exchange, I read the story. I'm not into Zombie fic, but a Zombie goldfish piqued my curiosity. It reads like a story you would tell your child before bed, including a voodoo style rhyme. If your kids are Wednesday and Pugsley Addams, of course! I found myself feeling kind of sorry for Sam and young Tommy. There are diabolic hints of a sequel. Would be interesting to read what else is cooking in Lisa's deviant mind! :D
 
 
                                                                 *    *    *    * 
 
Sam is quite the goldfish.
 
I think everyone can see that Lisa has tales of horror for everyone as well as some for young children. Mosey over to Amazon and check her tales out. I guarantee you will love her stories.
 
Lisa McCourt Hollar is a Woman In Horror!
