It’s a Halloween miracle!

We couldn’t let Halloween come and go without delivering the horror goods, so we’ve done it. We’ve written the horror nastiness that might just make Halloween 2016 a night to dismember. Let me tell you a little about our new novel, The Clowns.

This book is our love letter to the very direct horror of the 70’s and 80’s, the kind that wore its heart (and lungs and intestines) on its sleeve.

Some books play coy with their horror elements. This book leaps straight for the goddamn jugular. Every October, I binge like crazy on this kind of stuff, books and movies alike. Hopefully you do, too.

We’ve wanted to write one like this for a long time, but a weird thing happened on the way to the meatgrinder. We outdid ourselves. I really love the characters in this book, and I think they give the novel great depth. It’s horror featuring people worth caring about, and I’m so excited to unleash it upon the world.

I know what you’re thinking: Finally, an old school, creepy clown novel for the rest of us! Indeed.

Preoccupation: A quick and haunting read

Rating: 5/5

Genre: Paranormal Suspense / Literary Mystery

I don’t read a lot of short stories, because best case scenario, they leave me wanting more. (Worst case scenario, there’s not enough time for anything to really happen, so they seem kind of pointless.)

BUT… I’m a sucker for a ghost story. And I am so glad I read this one.

A grief-stricken girl answers a house-sitting ad. Something about the house on the beach is off, or is it all in her head? The writing style is frenetic, almost disorienting at times, which absolutely adds to the atmosphere of the story.

I don’t want to say much more for fear of giving anything away, but if you’re at all a fan of paranormal suspense, give Preoccupation a read. And then rejoice because the story continues in The Devastation Agency, which I am downloading to my Kindle. Right. Now.

Your Name, In Fire: Funny, sweet, and full of suspense

Rating: 5/5

Genre: Paranormal Suspense / Urban Fantasy

This is not just “good for a new author” good. This book is GOOD good.

Your Name, In Fire is full of endearing characters: Connor, the adorable nerd. Wendy, the new girl with secrets. Not to mention the wide range of supporting characters. Liza Jane with her snarky ‘tude is probably my favorite. Even the villain, while not likable per se, is something new — or at least something I haven’t seen 1000 times before.

The cleverly structured plot is built for maximum suspense. It’s so well paced… one of those books that sucks you in early on and doesn’t let go. I kept saying, “Just one more chapter…” And then I’d blink and realize twenty minutes had gone by, and I’d blown through not one, but four more chapters.
