BotB Results, Daughters and Terrors

Hey Y'all. Happy, happy! Been a very busy week for me, and that actually makes me HAPPY, even if I do feel behind. Always always behind . . . I guess I feel loved.

First up is the Battle of the Bands results: Weed With Willie  vs  Squirrel Revival.

Predictably, The Squirrel wins by a bushy tale; even with my vote for Willie *Toby* and Saint Mac's vote for Wildwood Grass, technically a vote for Weed, which equates to a vote for Willie. You follow the logic - dancing feet may be required.

And also there are the book announcements I signed up for, then forgot to post. Ya know, busy, supposedly. Don't you just love the cover of Stephen Tremp's paranormal novel SALEM'S DAUGHTERS?

Stephen Tremp writes speculative fiction and his fourth novel, Salem’s Daughters, is supernatural thriller. A four hundred year old evil is unleashed when souls of the daughters of those killed during the Salem Witch Trials find a new generation of people to murder at a popular modern-day bed and breakfast.

For a full synopsis and to pre-order a copy of Salem’s Daughters for $2.99 (price goes up to $4.99 soon after release) Click Here.

And what better way to gear up for Halloween than revisiting all our childhood fears? Or instilling them in our own children  bwahahaha!!

Childhood Fears Cover Reveal

It's heeere! To everyone who's been asking me when they can buy a hard copy of The Bear Who Wouldn't Leave, here it is in all its glory.

The best part is that you also get three other awesome novellas! Whether clowns give you the creeps, or you've never quite trusted that scarecrow, there's something to frighten everyone.

If you like it, please give it (or my Bear) a review. Reviews make a huge difference, and to everyone who's taken the time to write one already, thank you so much! You've earned yourself a lot of great karma. The Childhood Fears anthology is available for pre-order now through,,   Kobo,   iTunes,   Barnes and Noble,   Samhain Publishing,

On her blog/newsletter, J.H. Moncrieff is announcing:

Coming next month: all horror, all the time

In honour of Halloween and the release of the Childhood Fears anthology, I'll be blogging about the creepiest stuff I can find throughout October. 

I'm also participating in the October Frights Blog Hop. If you know another writer that may be interested, please send them the link.

Hosting Stephen next Monday!
Awesome for JH that her story is in that anthology. And more creepy stuff on her blog? Very cool.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I like Stephen's cover because I have a thing for black cats. (And I own one.)

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Donna - Stephen's book and story line does look great value - and he's going to be around touring. The Childhood Fears ... look somewhat terrifying ... I'd prefer it - if the bear left .. but good for the Anthology ... and now to JH Moncrieff for hosting the Frights BlogHop .. cheers Hilary

Pat Hatt said...

Some great books coming out indeed. Like the covers too.

Stephen Tremp said...

I LOVED JH's book! It was creepy and exciting and even heartbreaking. I also love her blog as I'm a huge fan of anything spooky, especially if it's Halloween related.

Congrats to Stephen! I am so excited for him.
