Halloween Month – Amor Maldito By Simone Beaudelaire

Today I have Amor Maldito by my friend Simone Beaudelaire.  Also a small excerpt for you to get a taste.

Amor

 

 

Description1

Evening in South Texas. The citrus scented breeze fans the palm fronds. Lovers linger in the growing darkness, hoping to steal a moment alone.
But their solitude is about to be shattered as legends of the Border come to life to claim new victims. Tragedy, love, terror and myth merge in this trio of tantalizing tales… 

 

Excerpt2

Yesterday, in class, he’d noticed she’d drawn his name on her notebook and put a little heart around it. That was all the invitation Ethan Miller required. He’d been eyeing Yesenia Morales for weeks, wondering if he dared ask her out.

The pretty Mexican-American girl had been his tour guide when he’d arrived on the campus of The University of Texas- Pan American three months ago, freshly out of the Marine Corps and ready to use his G.I. Bill money to pursue his goal of becoming an engineer. From the first time he’d seen Yesenia, he’d been possessed by an attraction the likes of which he could not remember ever feeling, in all his twenty-two years of life.

As he sat in an uncomfortable seat in the recital hall, staring at the black velvet curtains covering the empty stage, he remembered the day. He’d driving around the campus for over an hour looking for parking, and had been reduced to using the Wal-Mart across the street. Muttering and grumbling in the heat, he’d jaywalked across the busy road, earning the ire of drivers, who honked, receiving a one-finger salute in response. At last he’d arrived, drenched with sweat and far from certain about his overall freshness, at the student services building, where his frustration had melted like a snow cone in the sun. A soft, girlish voice cut through the crowd, though the speaker was invisible.

“Okay, it’s time to go. I’m not waiting for anyone else. Hello, everyone. Welcome to The University of Texas- Pan American. My name is Yesenia, and I’ll be showing you around today. This is the student services building, as you might know. You can pay your bills, sign up for financial aid, and meet with advisors here. If you’ll follow me, I’ll show you the rest of campus.” The crowd parted to allow the young woman through, and at the sight of her, Ethan was instantly enthralled. Yesenia was not just pretty, she was gorgeous. She had shimmering black hair, pulled into two girlish braids. They hung over each shoulder, tied at the ends with little flowers.  She was tiny, not quite five feet. She was also slender, but had lovely curves, revealed just a little in a skimpy sundress that countered the blistering South Texas heat. He’d looked into her big brown eyes as she passed him, and was lost. Those eyes made him want to do something stupid, like write poetry.

Halloween Month – Red Sky: Rising By Ben Archer

Today I have Red Sky: Rising by author Ben Archer.  A friend recommended it to me and I’m looking forward to reading it.

BEN ARCHER

 

Description1

Humanity’s gone. People are still wandering around in these soulless husks, but all the beauty inside―love and compassion―has long since died. Now our dark, divided world is nothing more than a trophy to mankind’s failure. And all Hayden Flynn wants is to be left alone. However, when an ancient evil rises from the ashes, he realizes things could always be worse. …much worse.

Now, toeing the line between the living and dead, Hayden will use his elevated senses to prepare for the ultimate hunt.
Our salvation will rest on the weary shoulders of one man and a seemingly innocent girl, Quinn Merrin, that crosses his path.
Is it destiny or divine intervention that brought them together? Either way, Hayden and Quinn will stop at nothing to find him, even if it means leaving a path of bodies and blood in their wake. Because, after all, what price is too high for salvation?

Halloween Month -Portrait Of A Girl By Will Macmillan Jones

Today I have Book Two of the Mister Jones Mysteries, Portrait Of A Girl, by my friend Will Macmillan Jones.

Portrait

 

Description1

 

Does lightning ever strike twice? It would seem so for the unfortunate Mister Jones. After a harrowing encounter with the paranormal in The Showing, once again he again finds himself in mortal danger on the borders of that shadowed world.

An antique painting holds a strange fascination for him – and others. What does the girl in the portrait want from Mister Jones and from the others who become entranced by her beauty? And can she be stopped before she unleashes her ancient evil into our modern world in a lake of blood?

‘Portrait of a Girl’ is the second in the collection of Mister Jones paranormal mysteries.

An early reviewer of the book described it in this way:
This is a great read. I literally devoured it in less than 24 hours. If you liked The Showing… it’s better. Spooky. It reads a bit like Sheridan LeFanu or Guy de Maupassant. Awesome. Classic horror short story, except this isn’t short. It’s a full novel. Just wanted to clarify, it READS like a classic horror short story. Tight, spare and invoking tons of imagination.
