Horror ALERT!!

Horror fans will love this story too! Another horror to add to my little but ever growing collection, and I have already started another called 'Sliced or Diced: A Real Slasher', but lets talk a little about this one first shall we?

I wanted to create something different than Bloodthirsty Gruesome Tales and Death Bite with purely humans in the storyline and it was then I came up with Hacked Up and low and behold less than 4 days later the story was finished, much to my own surprise.

Here is the synopsis:

Allie Bates longs for the peace and solitude from the strange stalker that had been sending crude and malicious messages and so she leaves her life behind in the city and moves to the country.
Allie moved opposite a strange and intensely dark house opposite, the first of the nightmare soon begin with the strange sounds of screaming.
Rising from curiosity and intrigue she ventures to investigate and then finds herself deep inside a nightmare she wished would end soon.
Will Allie ever be able to escape the nightmare and the constant torture? Or is she destined for death? Who is the psychopathic person that inhabits the house opposite?

And you can buy it here:

Share the new arrival and tell your friends, anyone and everyone who loves a horror will really love this one!!

Happy Reading

Horror Fans Will Love This

Horror Fans will definitely love my new release. Zombies are everywhere and eating the flesh of the survivors.

Death Bite has been released!

Death Bite, I had an idea that writing something with Zombies as the featuring storyline would be a bit like an icebreaker to start my writing getting into the right direction in the horror scene, and so it began. I will admit at first I thought I was going to puke, I put that much detail I gave myself nightmares and my stomach turned over with every chapter that I wrote.
Normally I only write paranormal stories but I felt like having a change, I will be publishing plenty of new paranormal stories in the next few weeks but I need to get over my newly acquired horror bug first.

Author John Hansen drops by for an interview

Today author John Hansen has been so gracious as to drop by and chat with us about his writing experience.
John is the author of the wonderful flash fiction The Reason and also Lobotomy.

Ok, so onto the questions

What genre of books do you write? Can you tell us a little more about yourself?
I have always loved reading murder mysteries, especially Riordan’s Tres Navarre series, so when it would come time to write, I would always write crime fiction – both hardboiled and noir.

I am John Hansen, teenage author of a crime novel, some poetry, and several flash fiction stories including the Lobotomy trilogy. I have always loved to write, especially reading and writing crime fiction novels. Obviously, my passion lies with writing and I hope to become published in the coming years; it is more blind hope but hope nonetheless.

I also own and operate a book blog, so if you need a book reviewed, an author interview, or if you want to guest post, go to . Feel free to follow even if you care nothing about the blog to make this poor author happy. :)

Of the books that you've written, which one is your favourite and why?

I would have to say that my favorite book is my flash fiction (stories below 1,000 words) story, “The Reason”. It’s one of those things that you aren’t sure why you love it so much, you just do. “The Reason” has this easy yet dramatic vibe to it; it really captures and expresses my sarcastic writing style in its flowing sentences. Full of detailed descriptions, rich prose and drama, I find myself constantly re-reading it because I love it so much.

When did you begin writing? Can you tell us a bit about your journey into writing as well as publishing?

I have always loved to write, like most authors will say about themselves. But it was not until this summer that I really took action in writing. I wrote my first crime novel which is undergoing querying right now, created my blog, guest posted on blogs, wrote some poetry and experimented with flash fiction which, by the way, I am very fond of. I self published my poetry and flash fiction to Smashwords, because I didn’t really want to wait months for a response from a magazine and I thought that it would be easier to get my name out there if my work was a standalone, not just another stories amid hundreds of others.

What do you find the easiest part about writing, as well as the hardest?

The easiest part about writing for me is writing dramatic scenes that I have anticipated writing for days. I always love it when I have the chance to write the long awaited scene of the detective realizing that his friend is a murderer. Since I had thought about it so far in advance, when it came to write that particular dramatic scene, my words just danced off the page.

The hardest part about writing is remembering that darn word! I always find myself writing smoothly and happily, until suddenly, though I have a definition in mind, I can’t remember the stupid word that I was about to use. It is always difficult to choose the perfect, evocative word and when I forget the one that I was about to use… believe me, I get angry. I probably forget the particular word so often because I have a tendency to write in my mind much faster than I type and while my brain rambles away, my fingers just can’t keep up.

Which format of book do you prefer, ebook, hardback, or paperback?

This is a very difficult question. I used to be one of those skeptics of ebooks and Kindle reading who stuck with physical copies – though I didn’t care if it was hardback or paperback – but I have to admit that after publishing my first ebook, I am really beginning to like reading ebooks. It is a tough decision, but I think that I prefer ebooks.

What do you know now that you are published that you didn’t know pre-published that you wish you knew?

There are so many rumors floating around about how useless self-publishing is and I will admit that I refrained from self-publishing for awhile under that influence. I wish I knew then what I know now: how bogus those rumors are. In my mind, self-publishing is great! It’s a great way to get your name out there, to become comfortable with promoting your book and in some cases can be used as a platform.

Describe your book in 20 words or less. Help readers connect with your work!

A sadistic father. A dead mother. And a knife…

What’s your writing schedule?

It’s about to be very, very tight. It was already difficult to balance out writing, reading and promoting, but now I have to throw school, homework and sports into that mess. I will, sadly, have little time to write but I will try to fit it in.

What’s your favorite thing about your book/s?

Brace yourself for bragging! My favorite thing about my book is probably my unique writing style. As Jennifer Oberth says, “There is little dialogue but the characters speak to us with every line.” I feel as though I always find a way to write with next to no dialogue but at the same time keep the pace steady and not congested with too much description. I don’t know what it is about my writing style, but I can always re-read my books because it renews my interest each time.

What was the hardest scene to write? and what was your favorite scene to write?

The hardest scene for me to write is always the opening scene. Something within me always urges me to make it perfect. After all, it is what the agent sees, what the reader first sees and sets the tone of the book. The opening scene has to be perfect and I constantly go back and rewrite it. Despite the importance of it, the opening scene is my favorite scene to write as well as it being the most difficult. I am not certain why, but I think that it is because I pour all of my excitement, my ardor, my ideas into that scene because it is the opening of a fresh, new book that I have anticipated writing for so long.

Thank you so much John for dropping by and taking the time to complete this questions. I for one will definitely be on the look out for more of your work!
Ok everyone, I'm sure we can all agree this has been a fab interview and the books sound intriguing!!

New Release: Order of Blood

Order of Blood by Laurie Bowler When I first thought of writing Order of Blood the idea stemmed from Moon Rising which is where the character Hervidor was first written and created. It was due to his cruelty in Moon Rising that I then chose to produce his own story, and in his own words exactly what happened. I feel it covers a lot of information to Nessy’s (the lead character in Moon Rising) capture and how she came to be imprisoned in the first place. Order of Blood covers the entire Tellis family, their sinister intentions and the revenge they lust for towards the Gulon race, in particular Abram, who is Nessy’s father and the leader of the Gulon. The Gulons themselves are a Scandinavian legend and I stumbled across them while I was trying to research on a new refreshing idea to add into my story, I knew from the start of Moon Rising leading into Order of blood that I didn’t want to have werewolves. So, the Gulons appeared on a Google page I was looking at, and I found them fascinating, not all of their traits they are known for have been written into Order of Blood or the Moon Rising series, they have been adapted to fit the theme and to create a brand new race. The book itself is fast paced, with some romance elements attached but it’s part of a horrible plan to ensnare Nessy and to make a believer out of Abram. Hervidor is the most powerful of his own kind, he is the King with many talents that the Gulons aren’t aware of! He is by far the cruellest, most sinister and detestable character I have ever written but the storyline has been an impressive build to see how it all turns out for both races, the fight for survival begins. The plan is executed and many lives are at stake, along with the reputations of the most notorious leaders any race has ever come across. I enjoyed writing this thrilling novel, and it has inspired me to write more on the Gulons, I think they deserve their own series after being featured in so many before. So far, they have been featured in Moon Rising, Sunrise to Sunset and Golden Horizons, and now Order of Blood. They are amazing creatures to write about, and are so different compared to the werewolves clan that are often written about. Here is the synopsis for this novel: Hervidor Tellis is intent on the revenge and humiliation of the Gulons, one in particular; Abram. For centuries, the Gulons have patrolled and ruled the lands around his home, taking the lives and the food from the vampire race and leaving them without choice. Nessy aka Marinette, Abram’s daughter holds Hervidor’s attentions as he makes the daring plan a reality, taking her heart and enforcing the vampire race and the strength of his race, being the king the survival lay heavily upon him and so did their survival against the Gulons. The Gulons ruled by Abram, the greatest pack leader that ever existed, holds the chance to diminish the vampire race to nothing but dust, but then finds his daughter the sole captivating feature in the vampire kings world. Racing to head him off before he can humiliate and kill his daughter for his own revengeful sinister lust, will he find Nessy in time to be able to save her life and the save the future of the Gulon race? All of my novels are only $0.99 and will remain the same price. I wish I could give them away for free, but amazon won’t let me!!!! Sorry!!
