Straight off My Bookshelf: "Sunken Park" and "The Selkie Secret"

Image
Hey all! I know many of us like to spend Sunday afternoon reading. So here are some suggestions straight from my own bookshelves and eReader. The first is Sara Brooke's newest release, "Sunken Park" which once again demonstrates her wonderfully twisted imagination: Some places are bad to the core. Behind the locked gates of Sunken Park, there is a terrible secret that spreads darkness over the once-natural beauty of the trees and lakes. There is an evil that is powerful and hungry, seeking to extract its revenge on anyone who dares to tread on its land. Looking for some rest and relaxation, several college students decide to spend the weekend at the park. But they're about to walk into a nightmare that will affect each of them differently. As they struggle to survive, the mystery begins to unravel. There's no place to hide from the horrors of Sunken Park.  Of course "Sunken Park" is available at Amazon and Barnes

Interview with Horror Author, Sara Brooke

I discovered the works of Sara Brooke last year after a mutual friend on Facebook posted a link to her new (at the time) novella, "The Bed." Always on the lookout for something different to read, I downloaded the book based on that recommendation (proving once again that word-of-mouth really is among the best forms of advertisement). I immediately loved Sara's writing-style, not to mention vivid imagination. After then reading "Ghost Swim," "Still Lake," followed by "Kransen House," (my favorite so far) I was completely hooked on wanting to pick up even more of her work. I would call her style a cross between Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Bentley Little with just the right amount of eroticism mixed in. She has a lot of new projects on her plate, which she discusses in this interview. Read on for more. :)   Photo courtesy of Eugenio Wilman TA: First, thanks for taking some time away from your many projects to do this. Now as I under

An Interview with Horror Author, Gary Lee Vincent

I've ran into author, Gary Lee Vincent at several horror conventions over the years. Last year as I was taking a break from being at my table and walking around to see what everybody had, I finally picked up a copy of Vincent's "Darkened Hills" (which so far I very highly recommend if you're looking to not be able to sleep for a few days) and even got a cool little wooden coffin box out of the deal . He was also gracious enough to answer a few questions after a busy weekend at Horror Hound. The interview below talks of his published works along with where you can pick them up and his experiences as an author published on an indie publishing press.  TA: First off, thanks for taking the time to do this after such a busy weekend. Can you tell us about the first story you've ever written and/or that moment when you knew you wanted to write for a living? GLV: In 1991, I started writing music and had originally thought I might enjoy pursuing a care
