The Real Ghosts of Savannah, Georgia

I know, I know, the title of this guest post sounds like the name of a reality show. When it comes to paranormal activity in Savannah, Georgia though, reality is often stranger than fiction. In fact, a reality show about the ghosts of Savannah has real potential…perhaps it’s time for me to trade in my career as an author and head to Hollywood. Read the rest of this entry

Vampire’s Trill – Book Two Sabrina Strong Series

Vampire’s Trill by Lorelei Bell

New friends, new adventures . . . shocking revelations and harrowing experiences make for riveting reading in this second installment of the Sabrina Strong Series.

Lorelei Bell has created another unique and mesmerizing mystery masterwork that tops its prequel Vampire Ascending in drama, fast-paced action, love, passion, heartache, and devastation. New friends, new adventures, shocking revelations, and harrowing experiences make for riveting reading in this second installment of the Sabrina Strong Series.

Sabrina learns more details – through Vasyl’s recounting of his human and vampire life— of what her role as a sibyl means and how the past and the future will come together. She finally learns what role Vasyl has played in his search for the next sibyl and why she is so tremendously important.

As Sabrina’s partner, Dante, puts himself at risk to help all of mankind, Sabrina learns why newcomer, Bill Gannon, is so interested in her, and she works to protect Bjorn Tremayne from losing it all. Sabrina’s past catches up to her, and she discovers that not everyone is, or was, what she thought. New characters, some kind and trustworthy, and some not, contribute to a captivating story line, and Sabrina finds herself on a journey she never thought possible.

Sudden Death Overtime

Sudden Death Overtime by Steve Vernon

Meet Sprague Deacon – one of the toughest old-time hockey players who ever skated upon a rink of hand-poured ice. Sprague was born and raised and he expects to die here on the Northern Labrador coast. What he did not expect was a tour bus full of vampires – none of whom glitter in the least bit – to pull into his town and begin lowering the population level – one corpse at a time. Sprague and his three best friends – an over-the-hill never-say quit bush league hockey team from Northern Labrador go toe-to-tooth with a tour bus full of vampires in an immortal-stakes showdown of street hockey? For the answer – throw Paul Newman’s Slapshot into a blender with Steven Niles 30 Days of Night and hit frappe!’

Best of all – you don’t even need to be much of a hockey fan to enjoy this yarn.

Neck Deep In Blood

14 July 1789 – Storming the Bastille

Recently I did a guest post over at Bloody Good Vampires, discussing which was more evil; humans or vampires.  In that article I barely began to scratch the surface of humanity’s crimes. As I commence research for my next book, humanity’s innate ability to cause harm to itself becomes ever more apparent.

My next book will be set amid the turbulent and bloody times of the French Revolution. Let’s take a quick look at some facts arising from the French Revolution. Read the rest of this entry

Insatiable For Sin – Book Two Eternal Hunger

Insatiable For Sin – Book Two Eternal Hunger by Francene Carroll

Despite her disturbing experiences in the lead up to her wedding, Lucia Holmes returns from her honeymoon feeling completely refreshed and restored to her normal self. She puts her hallucinations down to stress, and she is ready to forget all about them. She quickly discovers, however, that it will not be so easy to escape her destiny.

As she settles into married life with Aiden, Lucia finds herself changing. She has little patience with her new husband or the frustrations of everyday life. She feels disconnected from everyone around her. When she attacks a man at Desire and attempts to drink his blood, Lucia realizes that she needs to find out what is going on before it is too late.

Her search for the vampire Drake L’amour takes her into a world of wealth and decadence which could not be more different from the mundane life she has left behind. But there is a very dark secret at the heart of this world, and when she discovers it, Lucia has to make a choice between her yearning for glamour and excitement, and her eternal soul.

Fav Friday with Dennis Boyer

My 10 Favourite “Any” Things – Dennis Boyer

ELO – one of Dennis’s favourite things

When Rebeka invited me to participate in her blog she gave me several different options – a guest post, featuring my book, posting an author bio, etc.  But her invitation also included a subtle challenge, daring me to “be brave.”  Well, never one to back down from a challenge (I am super-competitive by nature), that was what I immediately responded to.  The challenge seemed simple enough – post your ten favorite “anythings”.  Should be a snap, I thought.  But as I gave the topic some thought, I began to realize this was indeed a heavy gauntlet I chose to pick up.  It’s pretty hard to limit oneself to just ten things when considering your all-time favorite things.  My first thought is to ignore the heavy stuff – you know my family, my relationship with God, the blessing of being born into a free society…  Instead I’ll present my favorites with the caveat that these are my favorite “frivolous” things.  The things which don’t necessarily have the most depth of meaning, but the simple things I find pleasure in.  Well, here’s my best crack at it – enjoy.

Introducing Fav Friday

Look for the “Fav Fri” symbol on upcoming posts.

This week sees the introduction of a brand new feature – Fav Friday. What’s it all about?

Readers love getting to know authors and generally that happens over time via interviews. As an author I can’t tell you what a chore it can be doing interviews. Repeatedly asked the same questions in a different way again and again.  There are only so many times and a finite variation of ways I can tell you about why I started writing. Trust me folks, nearly all authors would rather be working on their next project then answering interview questions. Read the rest of this entry
