MISTS OF PAPOOSE POND - A NOVEL BY BLAZE MCROB - IS OUT!


http://www.amazon.com/Mists-Papoose-Pond-Blaze-McRob-ebook/dp/B017DMCFHI/ref=sr_1_1_twi_kin_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1446299733&sr=1-1&keywords=mists+of+papoose+pond

Mists Of Papoose Pond, a novel by Blaze McRob, is out for your reading pleasure!

I had a lot of fun writing this novel. The toughest part of telling you what it is about is that I want no spoilers. This is a complex tale, not from the angle of reading it, but from the fact that there is no one dominant fear, no single monster, no single antagonist or protagonist. Everything comes together to create the whole. Nothing about any of my story people and creatures has ever been portrayed by any other author in the manner I wrote this tale. Nothing.

What I will say is that this is a horror/adventure/end days/and more novel. It is a roller-coaster ride of emotions. There are no slow, boring stretches contained within. Every chapter ends in a cliff-hanger and the next begins on a roll.

You will shake your head and wonder where I dug this up. My story people tell me what to write and I listen to them. This is what they told me to pen.

I hope you enjoy this Dark tale as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Amazon book description:

 
What does the future hold?
Where will it begin?
On a mountaintop?
At the bottom of the sea?
In a spaceship?

Or perhaps in a cabin by a pond enveloped by mysterious mists.
Mysterious mists that secrete forces of nature…
And good and evil.
*
Ed Hageman wants nothing more than to relax at Papoose Pond, but that's not to be. As the ultimate battle between good and evil shapes up around him, creatures are not what they seem. Many twists of fate, and much shock await not only Ed and his companions, but those of you who read his story.
Prophets of yore were not all-seeing after all. Gods and devils are not how holy books described them.
Blaze McRob spins the tale.
Blaze McRob untangles the legend.
Blaze McRob finds the meaning in the Mists of Papoose Pond.

QUARTER MOON HAUNTS



http://www.fridayfrights.ws/
https://www.facebook.com/groups/fridayfrights/


This is my Friday Frights tale for this week. The theme this month is Witches, Goblins, Ghosts and Ghouls. This tale took on a mind of its own. Enough to where it will become a novel in 2016. I hope you enjoy it.

 


Quarter Moon Haunts



     The old farmhouse seemed like such a pleasant place to rent. No one is around for a mile in any direction. The road it sits off of isn’t paved, but it’s passable enough. In most weather, that is.

     But heavy snow adds a whole new complexity to the situation. This year, the snow has fallen to twice the normal levels. And the cold: the temperatures have hit all time lows for January. A solid week of twenty below zero.

     This area of Sussex County, New Jersey has many homes constructed in the late 1700’s. Mine is one of them. Sure, it has charm, but the plumbing then and the plumbing in this day and age are miles apart. My water pipes all froze. Were it not for the fact that I filled the tub with water and filled old milk jugs with water as well before the deep freeze, I would not be able to bathe or have drinking water now. And, I have plenty of canned goods.  Country folk know how to survive.

     The wind whistles through the cracks present throughout the house. Pretty much, I live in the living room. That is where the fireplace is. I have an ample supply of wood. I won’t freeze.

     Sitting in my recliner in front of the fire, I watch the flames swish around with their patterns of color creating a dance of allure and mystery. At night, the fire is my only light, the power lines having blown down in the first day of the tremendous storm to hit this area. No matter. I am a writer and can write by hand on a tablet as well as on a computer. Later, I’ll transcribe what I have written. For now, there is no need for a computer.

     Solitude. Yes, I definitely have it here. A single man living within the majesty of no constraints on his time is in a heavenly place, but . . . but something is not quite right. Even now they call to me: voices; soft, but insistent.

     I’m not daft. The voices are real. Even before the storm, before the isolation, the voices were there. But, they were not as close, nor did I get as near as I do now to where the center of the ethereal pleadings fall upon my ears. 

     My writing pad and pen are put to the side for now. Closing my eyes to remove any visual interference with my thoughts and with what I am hearing, I allow myself to come under the spell of what creeps through the room, feeling the touch of what is beseeching me, tasting the agony of what happened so many years before, and absorbing the aroma of hatred and a need for revenge.

     The pressure forces itself upon me as it always does, driving me crazy, pulling me to where it wishes me to go. No way can I resist the force.

     I put on my heavy clothing and boots and venture out into the cold. The snow has stopped falling, but the chill in the air is horrific. Aagh, I dread this trip , but I have no control over it now.

     The damned wind nearly knocks me off my feet as I trudge across the huge porch, new snow drifts having formed since the last time I had to make this trek. Fuck, just once I wish I could simply venture outside and do what I have to do, but no, Mother Nature says otherwise.

     Forcing my way through the snow and wind, I make it to the outhouse. The door opens easily. It shouldn’t. There should be a wall of ice greeting me, barring me from entering, but there never is. The double seater is always ready for me, wanting me to get in easily. Why?

     I sit down quickly, not wanting the jewels to freeze, merely wishing to attend to business and get back inside, but leaving the quarter mooner is not as easy as entering it. A pressure, somewhat like some wonky sort of force shield, keeps me away from the door when I’m done, and the voices talk to me with words I do not understand. And yet . . . and yet, every time I venture out, the word recognition appears to become easier.

     The words, the pressure, follow me back inside the house. I toss a couple more logs on the fire and grab a cold beer from a chest filled with snow. Hey, a man’s ‘gotta have some way to relax, doesn’t he. Yes, I stocked this place up good for the winter. Back in October, I started my winter prep. I’m set ‘til Spring. At least I hope I am. The way this winter is going, it might be a long ways off.

     A crescendo of voices surrounds me, speaking into my right ear first and then my left. But  . . . but the languages are different, and the mixture digs into my brain, a cacophony of sound driving me to the very limits of what I am able to handle. The beer drops out of my hand, spilling onto the floor, and I jerk about in the recliner attempting to understand what is happening to me.

     My chest is assuaged by a force so powerful I am afraid the end is near for me, pushing down on a heart that is already engorged to its limits and beating wildly, and I am powerless to take control of the situation.

     The force, or maybe it is more than one, and I wrestle for what seems hours, but who can keep track of time in a situation like this? My strength wanes and . . .



                                                       *    *    *    * 



     I come to, lying on the floor, soaked in my sweat, and freezing because the fire has gone completely out. An odor permeates everything in the room, one that I know well, but it’s impossible! That can’t be! But it is.

     The fucking shit house! I am smelling the defecation from the old quarter mooner. It’s . . . it’s in the room. But how? I crawl to where my logs are stacked and light a match. The burning sulfur-laden sliver of wood shows me what I suspected but which I still can’t believe. It sits in front of the door leading to the porch. How does an outhouse just up and walk inside?

     Cautiously, I start up a fire and stand by it to warm up. I’m chilled to the bone and need to raise my temperature so my brain can function right. Yes, that’s it; that’s what’s wrong. This is all some sort of hocus-pocus caused by hypothermia. Get warm; move about; that’s what I have to do.

     The outhouse is my total center of focus right now. I can’t take my eyes off it. Unless I’ve gone completely over the edge, the damned thing is staring back at me, or . . . or, is something inside waiting for me?

     It wobbles from side to side. Voices, the same as before, come out. But this time I understand them for what they are. The door is flung open. An old Dutch guy, looking like he came out of one of Washington Irving’s tales, is seated on the wooden throne, staring at the roll of toilet paper in his hand with some sort of amusement, as if he wonders what it is. A dark skinned hand reaches over from the other side and snatches it out of his hand. The door slams shut once more as they fight among themselves for something they are confused over anyway.

     This is my chance to get out of here. But how? The only door is blocked and all the windows are sealed shut by thick ice. And where would I go anyway? Everything is still shut down due to the storm. My clothing is still wet. I would freeze to death before I got to anyplace safe.

     Yeah, right. Even if I did run off, then what? Would I run down the road shouting, “Beware, the shit-house is coming, the shit-house is coming.”?

     Damn, I am going crazy! A Dutch ghost and what appears to be a Native American one fighting over a roll of ass-wipe. And I’m caught up in the center of it all. Isolation and the cold have taken their toll on me. My tale remains by the side of my recliner. It pales in comparison to what weaves through my house.

     The outhouse door slams open and the Dutch ghost comes flying out. The Indian ghost sticks his face out and shakes the roll of paper in our faces. Pulling his pants up, the Dutchman looks at me and says, “Don’t just stand there. Lets get that paper thing out of his hands.”

     He runs to the quarter mooner and tries to pull the door open, but the Indian locked it. I rush to the other side and open up the other door-this is a deluxe model-and run inside and grab the paper.

     What the hell am I doing? I’m taking sides in an argument between two ghosts who tried to kill me just a little while ago.

     The two of them go at it tooth and nail for awhile until they wear each other out. I shake my head, not quite knowing what to do but knowing now that I’m not going anywhere. Laughing out loud, I say, “You guys are too much. Have a beer.”

     They stare at me as if I’m crazy. “What is this beer?” the Indian asks.

     I laugh. “Your little Dutch buddy knows what it is.”

     Popping the top, I hand him the bottle. I guess ghosts can drink beer. If not, I’ll find out in a hurry.

     He takes a swig and smiles at me. I hand his partner in crime one. He takes a whiff of what I’m offering him and breaks out in a huge smile. These guys are in my camp now.

    Going into the dining room, I grab a couple of chairs and bring them in to the living room, and motion for them to have a seat. I grab a beer for myself, slide into my recliner, and sit between them. The spirits are happy. They enjoy the warmth from the fire and the taste of the cold beer as well. I don’t know how many beers we drink, but when I wake, the sun is high in the sky and my partners in crime are long gone, and so is the outhouse. Stepping outside, I see it is back where it belongs.



                                                     *    *    *    *



     Spring finally comes and my pipes thaw. Power has long been restored, and I have been able to restock my dwindling supplies. My landlord arrives one day and tells me I am the only tenant he has ever had that lasted out the winter. I smile at him when he goes on and on about how strange people are, complaining about seeing ghosts and all. But he smiles the most when I tell him I want to buy the old house for twice what it’s worth.

     The house and surrounding woods are beautiful this time of year. Every night, I sit on the porch swing and bring out a cooler laden with longnecks. Side by side we sit, as we all tell our tales to each other. I learn a lot about the old Dutch and Native American customs, and they get to understand what makes me tick as well. I publish their stories and create quite a name for my historical friends.

     Many a reader immerses themselves in the tales of Mike VanTassel, and Running Deer. They are legends in Sussex County now. Those are the names I sign when I autograph their books.

     But most importantly, every evening when their spirits emerge from the quarter mooner, we share some beers and swap some tales.

     They are my friends . . .

DR. TERRY SEGAL WRITES GREAT CONTEMPORARY WOMEN'S FICTION AND MUCH MORE!


http://www.amazon.com/Dr.-Terry-Segal/e/B00PG6R6BY/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0

Dr. Terry Segal writes great contemporary women's fiction, as well as writing in the non-fiction, self-help genre. She is also a great artist.

I know I write mainly in the horror genre, but that doesn't mean I don't read other genre's besides my own. Terry's books have an interesting thread running through them. She is much more positive than I am. I like having friends like that. They enable me to view the world in a different light. I met Terry through my wife, Terri DelCampo. As a matter of fact, Terry attended our wedding. Thank you very much for coming, Terry. My wife and Terry have been friends for quite some time now. I'm glad they met and connected, or I would have not been privileged to make Dr. Segal's acquaintance.

Below, I have Terry's Amazon bio and links to her books. If you're looking for uplifting stories, Terry Segal is your lady.

Go Terry go!

Amazon bio:

She holds a Master of Arts Degree in Educational Psychology from California State University-Northridge, as well as a Master of Arts Degree in Theatre from the University of Miami, Florida. A licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for nearly 30 years, Dr. Segal believes that magic happens when blocks are removed, balance is restored and dreams hidden in the secret heart are revealed.

Terry loves to hear that people want to befriend her characters, and creates them to allow readers to wrestle with their own thoughts and feelings about issues presented in her books. She hopes that her writing will foster compassionate understanding of differences as human beings, as well as forge unique bonds through the similarities.

Dr. Segal is also the author of the self-help book, The Enchanted Journey: Finding the Key That Unlocks You. Her poetry and prose have been published and two of her plays have been performed at the Atlanta One-Minute Play Festival. She writes a weekly Enchanted Blog.

HIDDEN CORNERS OF MY HEART is contemporary women’s fiction. Janna Wolfe, devoted wife and mother, alters her predictable life when she engages in an innocent flirtation with the young, French pastry chef at her bakery. Sexual chemistry ignites, days pass and Janna begins to lose her balance on the emotional tightrope of fidelity. She’s compelled, as if under a spell, to explore her awakened passion. Spiraling out of control, Janna consults a Brazilian psychic, wisdom cards, her closest friends and her journal. Janna must tame her unbridled passions or risk losing all that is sacred to her.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Terry Segal creates intriguing story lines, and very human characters involved in believable relationships. Janna's struggles and her temptations felt all too familiar. I think any woman who has been married for awhile, and has grown bored, complacent or/and tired of feeling invisible to their husbands would love this heartfelt read. (For sure, the women I know!) Who wouldn't welcome an Antonine into their otherwise hum drum life? I was so sad when the book ended. I especially miss Janna and her best friend Kathy. I hope they return soon in another book. I highly recommend this book to all looking for a little escapism from our all too real world.

Congratulations Terry Segal, well done! Ivy Tobin 
 
 
 
 
 
 The Enchanted Journey, a book of practical magic, sweeps you away on an odyssey of self-discovery.

Arming you with a treasure map that includes nuggets of research, case histories, and individualized exercises, she sets you on a path that highlights tranquil living and more meaningful experiences. With a light-hearted, conversational approach, Dr. Segal inspires you to do battle with your Critical Dragons. She grants Enchanted Keys at each of the ten gateways that unleash the healing powers of Altered Perceptions, Connection to Nature, Humor and others, designed to recapture your lost sense of wonder.

"You may need more than one key to unlock your magic, but with a perfect alignment of notches and grooves, doors to undiscovered possibilities fly open. I dare you to choose ENCHANTMENT..."

RUSH HOUR - BY THOMAS BROWN - IS THIS WEEK'S SCARY SUNDAY TALE!


http://penofthedamned.com/2015/10/20/rush-hour/

What do we have when we take the bleak existence experienced by so many inhabitants of this spinning orb we live on  and combine it with the reality of impending doom? We have Rush Hour, by Thomas Brown. Horror authors tend to capture the reality of blacks, grays, whites, and different shades of such interspersed within their writing. Thomas Brown does it better than most. This story reminds me of George Orwell's great classic 1984 in this respect. Thomas' great prose paints the perfect canvas.

Go to the link above and read this great story for free. While you're at the Pen Of The Damned's website, read more of Thomas' great stories.

Katie lives with her soulmate, whom she met online at Thanksgiving and married in April. Together they share their lives with their three children and two leopard geckos. After suffering an especially bad spill on the bunny hill in 1989, Katie became an amputee in 2011, giving her the much needed time to pen her first novel, Sugar's Dance. With the release of Sugar's story, Katie discovered the unfilled need for disabled heroes and heroines! Her stories are about empowering people with special circumstances to find the one person who will love them because of their abilities, not their inabilities. Katie has a slight addiction to Twitter and blogging, with a lessening aversion to Pinterest now that she quit trying to make the things she pinned.

THE DEATH MAIDEN JOURNEYS ( SLAYFUL STORIES BOOK 2 ) - BY MELANIE MCCURDIE - IS NOW UP!!


http://www.amazon.com/Death-Maiden-Journeys-Slayful-Stories-ebook/dp/B0165XQT3W/ref=la_B016C68GYC_1_1_title_0_main?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1445481834&sr=1-1


 The Death Maiden Journeys ( Slayful Stories Book 2 ), by Melanie McCurdie, is now awaiting your reading pleasure. Melanie has burst upon the scene quite recently. Not as an author - she is involved with a rather dynamic group of talented authors and they have been putting up stories on a website for quite some time now - but as an author on her own  as well. I told her a while back to do it. And, she listened to me. Bravo, Melanie. She now has three books up on Amazon. I'm proud of her.

Enjoy a new, bold author, one who pushes the boundaries with her tales. Everything Melanie writes will find a home in the dark recesses of your soul. She is a thinking person's author. I like that. There is nothing boring about my friend, Melanie. Meet a new favorite author, and a new friend. Look into her tales.

Book description:


 She begins as Lilith, a human who has her own way of bringing torture and desire to every life she touches. Killing at will and with no regret, She slowly evolves into Death Maiden and devolves into the human condition as she grows with greater skill, crueler.

As She comes to mature, so does Her understanding of the world around her, and so does the knowledge that all life is fleeting, even when you are the one dispatching it. I invite you to enter Her world.

Enjoy your journey and remember, Death Maiden does not spare.
 

Format: Kindle Edition
Once again, the author has nailed it with this chill-inducing book! If you're looking for a dark tale that will make you want to leave the lights on at night, then look no further! While the majority of us wonder about and fear death, Melanie McCurdie's book brings those fears to the surface in a masterfully horrifying way! Don't buy this book unless you're the type who loves and can handle a truly blood-curdling, soul-chilling tale!

HALLOWREAD 2015 IS THE PLACE TO BE ON OCTOBER 23RD AND OCTOBER 24TH!



http://hallowread.com/events/

https://www.facebook.com/events/333657856823977/

http://hallowread.com/


HallowRead 2015 in Historic Ellicott City, Maryland, is the place to be on October 23rd and October 24th. This is always a super occasion and fun is had by one and all. Go the links above and find out about all the events taking place there. You won't be sorry. There'll  be a hot time in the old town on those two nights!

Hallowread is a book festival and mini-con for authors and fans of Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Steam Punk and Horror.

Multi author event with various activities throughout the weekend including Writing Workshops, Ghost Tour, SteamPunk Author Tea, Author Panels, Book Signing, Paranormal Investigation, the new House on Haunted Hill attraction at the ruins of the Patapsco Female Institute. Hang out with your favorite authors in the haunted and historic town of Ellicott City, Maryland!
Local Maryland author of dark urban fantasy, Rachel Rawlings, had a crazy idea. Create a book convention for genre fiction and hold it the weekend before Halloween. Haunted and historic Ellicott City has always held a special place in her heart so there was no other place to take her convention. The town welcomed her and HallowRead with open arms. Each ticket sold helps raise money for the Ellicott City Partnership- a coalition of residents and business owners for the betterment of the town. HallowRead and the other events held in the historic district raise money for projects like rain barrels which help reduce the sediment and contaminants running into the Patapsco River and fund grants for projects like Paint Main Street which helped small business owners get a much needed fresh coat of paint improving the moral and over all appearance of the town. One ticket, whether it’s a $10 House on Haunted Hill attraction admission or the full monty ticket makes a difference for the town and the wonderful people who call it home, something Rachel is extremely proud of.
