Free Kindle Promotion – ‘The Secret’

Hi Everyone,

My free Kindle promotion is back on ‘The Secret’.    Get it for free starting Monday the 24th through Friday the 28th.    If you missed it the first time, here’s your chance.

‘The Secret’ is a light-hearted paranormal romance that leaves you with a smile.

Vince Campbell isn’t like other recent college graduates. While they hit the bars on Friday night, he loads up his Civic with ‘Have you seen this girl’ posters and heads out to neighboring towns and states. While they mingle on the dance floor, he searches shelters and morgues. While other guys are looking for a one-night stand, he thinks of only one girl. His entire life: past, present and future, could be summed up as a relentless search that began the night of the Sadie Hawkins Christmas dance during his senior year in high school. That was the night that Katrina Watson vanished without a trace in the labyrinth behind the old Thornton mansion. That was the night a part of him died.

The only lead the cops ever had in Kat’s disappearance was the reference in her diary to some secret she intended to share with Vince the night she vanished. Only one problem – no one had any idea what that secret might be. Not even Vince.

According to urban legend, Kat wasn’t the labyrinth’s first victim. It took the Thornton’s twin boys over a hundred years ago. What kind of mind designs a three-dimensional labyrinth? How can the perfectly trimmed grass and hedges that line its paths never need tending too? Why was the stone wall around it, built to keep people out? Could Kat’s secret have shed any light on the mystery, and more importantly, did it have anything to do with the disappearance of Vince Campbell himself some five years later?

Just how smart are we?

I saw this on the AP Wire out of Kentucky…

A guy got his 1968 Camaro stuck in the mud.   After countless attempts to push it out with the help of his “crew”, he got this great idea.   One of his buddies pulled up behind the Camaro in a 4WD pickup to push it out.   To keep from doing any damage to either car or truck, the owner of the Camaro slid between the vehicles, sat on the front bumper of the pickup, stuck out his legs and braced his feet against the rear bumper of the Camaro.    The last thing he yelled before both knees blew out was, “Gun it!”

Sometimes I wonder how we made it this far.   J/W

Free horror and paranormal romance for those who dare….

Hi Everyone,

It’s almost over but there’s still time to get Kindle versions of two of my books ‘Eleven Till Midnight’ and ‘The Secret’ for FREE.    Time runs out at midnight on the 30th.   I’m hoping that a few of you might give them a try and post a review.

‘Eleven Till Midnight’ is dark horror at its best.

An atmospheric anomaly felt simultaneously around the world causes a brief disruption in communication and electrical service. After a tense moment everything appears to return to normal. That is until a metaphysical change begins to slowly emerge in everyone. First come glimpses of alternate lives, dreams of different pasts and potential futures so real that they conjure feelings and memories that extend well beyond the moment. But visions of the familiar are only the initial symptoms of the transformation. Minor hemorrhaging signals the onset of the final stage – an awakening to merging realities that is quickly followed by a violent and inexplicable death. As man’s reign comes to a horrifying close, our primary characters must cope with the visions of what could have been as they spend their final moments in a desperate fight to reunite with those they love.

‘The Secret’ is a light-hearted paranormal romance that leaves you with a smile.

The Best New Horror Series on Television… and the winner is

If you haven’t seen it yet – you should.   I’m talking about the Sundance series ‘The Returned’.   If you’re tire of any of the following in a horror series:

1) Twenty-something models playing high school kids

2) Shows where just about every dam character is either a vampire, wolf, ghost, witch or zombie

3) Terrible scripts with forced action that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever

4) Shows where the kids are somehow wiser and more intelligent that their parental counterparts

5) etc…

…then you love ‘The Returned’.    Why is it that we (USA) have such a hard time producing a realistic and believable horror show?   Shows where kids are kids – not perfect, stylish symbols of what will never be, but real life, kids with the imperfections that we can all identify with.   Why is it that our shows appear to value special effects over storyline and acting?

‘The Returned’ is a wonderful show with incredible acting.   To put it quite simply – how would you react if your deceased brother or sister of 5 years suddenly showed up on your doorstep – looking and acting exactly as they did the day before they died?   How would they respond to the news that you and your parents buried them 5 years ago?   What would society do?

Don’t let the subtitles scare you off – if you don’t give this show a try you’ll never know just how good television can be when people actually care about what they produce.

Looking for a good read… well I’ve got a couple of new books for you!

If you’re in to apocalyptic thrillers then check out the sidebar on the right.

Ferryman has been out for a few months.   If stories of viruses and survival gets your blood flowing, then this one will surely get you puckered up.

Eleven Till Midnight just came out.   If a dash of SciFi on some home-cooked horror get you salivating, then break out the knife and fork because I’ve got a steaming hot plate for you.

It’s been too long.   Time to start raising some hairs again.   Until we meet on the page.  J/W

Holloween in Hard Times…

You know times are tough when this happens:

On the good side of the tracks…

The first house I went to gave me a stick.   I peered at the old-fart through the eye holes of my Chucky mask.   His response, “Now move along.”

The second, third and forth house on the street had the drapes drawn, lights out and a sign posted at the foot of their sidewalk.  ‘Move along’.

At the fifth house, a scantily-clad young lady answered the door.   I’m only eleven so I’m too young to know what she was supposed to be – but she reminded me of the models I see in my dad’s magazine.   She gave me a big, long hug and then dropped a single wrapped caramel in my bag.   I think she said, “Now move along.”  I’m not real sure because I think I was staring at her boobies, when she pushed me aside for this older kid.

At the sixth house a wrinkling old woman gave me a green apple.   “Now it looks like you have some work to do.”

I heard it was even worse on the “other” side of the tracks.

Instead of giving out apples – they just handed out razor blades.

 

The city came by this morning and asked if they wanted me to sweep up all the discarded candy.    I told them that my dog has already volunteered.

Have a spooky-good time.  J/W
