Classic Horror with a Twist

Isis is a story of a young girl who finds herself in possession of an unusual power. After a tragic accident takes the life of her beloved brother she makes a wish, to bring him back to her. The problem is the wish comes true. This novella is easily read in a couple of hours and perfect for any spooky storytelling opportunities you might have.
Clegg’s style of writing is beautiful but not too wordy. He gets to the point, but you feel captivated and intrigued as though you’re watching the story play out in the screen of your mind.
Douglas Clegg is one of my favorite horror writers and has a multitude of other books. There is also a specific site for Isis at www.isisthebook.com and there is a fantastic online game for the book as well as a trailer that friends are sharing online right now. The trailer has a surprise ending so if you aren’t startled at the end, you didn’t watch the whole thing. Check it out!

Farewell to a friend: Kate Duffy remembered

One of the icons of the Romance genre passed away this week. For those who don’t know her, Kate was most recently an editor for Kensington. But, Kate worked in publishing for many, many years and for several publishers.
I knew Kate. And though her death is such a loss for so many, and to an entire industry, it is her life we will all celebrate and remember.
Kate had a no-nonsense attitude and told it like it is. So the first time she sent me an email telling me how much she loved one of the videos I’d worked on I was so thrilled that I actually kept the email and have it still.
She had a wicked sense of humor, sometimes a dead-pan delivery that I loved. The last time I saw her she insisted that I sit down with her so she could show me how great her Kindle was and all the things she could do with it. Her exuberance for anything related to reading or books was contagious.
Kate will be missed. Kate will be remembered.
If you would like to read a tribute to Kate here are some sites-

A Cozy Murder Mystery with a Hint Of Austen's Splendor

Elizabeth Parker, Jane Austen aficionado, is attempting a retreat from a hectic life at her Aunt Winnie's Cape Cod bed and breakfast. But when the lights go out at a How to Host a Murder dinner party, Elizabeth discovers that the game set for the evening is being played too seriously by one of her aunt's guests. With the local wealthy miser dead, Elizabeth is pressed with the task of clearing her aunt's name and solving the mystery of this random aggressive act. Does Elizabeth have what it takes to unravel a murder mystery? What is the secret behind the Murder at Longbourn?
Tracy Kiely may be a newcomer to the publishing world, but make no mistake: this debut novel is an exceptional example of how murder mystery can intrigue and captivate reading audiences. Kiely's cozy will appeal not only to avid readers of murder mystery, but also to fanatics of Jane Austen's classic novels. The clever allusions to Austen's Pride and Prejudice are found throughout and will bring a smile to the face of any person familiar with Austen's work.
If you enjoy cozy murder mystery or find solace in subtle tales that are in some way informed by the classics of Jane Austen, then Kiely's first novel Murder at Longbourn will be the perfect literary escape.

The Power of Faith and Love Revealed

Visionary Anna Babic is an honest spirit who seeks to spread the message of her faith, but a non-believer Matt Robins, whose faith was ruined as a child, plans to find fault in her life's work. However, in the midst of his trial to prove her wrong, he finds an inescapable urge to share his life with her. Will Matt succeed in challenging Anna's convictions and faith, or will he find her pure spirit irresistible?
The power of faith is unpredictable and generally beyond our comprehension. What happens when a shattered spirit tries to find fault in a blessed seer and fails not only to find flaws in her perspective but also to find love where he least expects it? K. M. Daughters deals with this subject in a new book entitled Rose of the Adriatic, which takes readers back to Daughter's original debut novel, Jewel of the Adriatic.
The story within Rose of the Adriatic can appeal to the tastes of many readers: the concept of a seemingly impossible romance acts as the foundation for the work and will definitely attract romance fanatics, and the faith basis for the romantic connection will likely interest those readers interested in books that serve to strengthen their own faith-based convictions. Also, for those whose faith is currently being tested by trial or for any individual who wishes to provide support for an already strong and growing faith, Rose of the Adriatic is an ideal reading.

Trust is All that Can Save Our Universe

A visitor from another universe and slave to a terrible master, the psychic Kenna has come from a parallel dimension to prepare for an invasion. When she meets werewolf Talon Marshall, she believes that she has discovered her confidant, but she cannot bear to reveal to him the secret of her mission. And, although he wishes to possess her in every way, Talon feels that he must keep his distance for his own sake. Will they learn to trust each other in time? Or will it be too late for our universe?
Dragon Moon, the new book from Rebecca York and the next installment in her paranormal romance series, is an excellent fantasy reading from an accomplished author of over more than one hundred books. No stranger to the paranormal genre, York has been using her talent and knack for creating dimensional conflict interwoven with elements of romance to entrance readers with seductive and engaging stories for some time now.
If you are a reader of the paranormal genre, or if you appreciate romance blended with otherworldly strangeness and fantasy, then Dragon Moon is highly recommended.

In Praise of Those Who Serve

It is not often that the words "military" and "love" are used in the same sentence, unless one is describing the patriotic passion possessed by men and women working in the various branches of the service. It is true that these soldiers have a love for their country and their freedoms (as well as ours), but let it not be assumed that these same people who serve have forgetten the value of the love that can exist between two people. Five authors, Anne Elizabeth, Tara Nina, DC DeVane, Lindsay Downs, and C.H. Admirand, are reminding us that love is an important part of all of our lives through their collaboration on a new anthology of works that deal with the subject of romance as it relates directly to members of Special Operations forces. Operation L.O.V.E. is a collection of five stories that ingeniously blend military action with the appeal of romance.
These five authors have ties of their own to the five branches of the military: each has either family members or friends who have served their country and secured their honor in this way. Each story in its own way relates a trial or experience of love as it pertains to an individual with direct involvement in one of the five branches of Special Operation forces. As is written in the first part of the anthology, the book was collectively written to provide support of American troops, educate, and promote romance on all levels.
Action and drama fit nicely into this memorable collection of stories about love and service. If you or anyone you know is connected in some way to military service, then this anthology will be an appropriate addition to your reading collection. Pay homage to those who have served our country by way of reading this dedication to both their efforts and their characters.
