Author & Book Spotlight Hourglass Heights by Ian David Noakes

Friday, April 3, 2015
Gritty, disturbing, depraved and gory, Hourglass Heights inhabits the seedier side of things, and is brutally honest in its execution.

Title: Hourglass Heights
Author: Ian David Noakes
Genre: Horror
Publisher: Austin Macauley Publishers
Release Date: June 30th, 2014 (U.K.). December 30th, 2014 (U.S.)
Editions/Formats: eBook & Print
Burb/Synopsis:

Who is brutally murdering the male residents of the Hourglass Heights apartment complex? At first glance, it would appear that their spouses are the killers, but Detective Marcia Tanaka believes that a serial killer is responsible.

Through the course of her investigation, Detective Tanaka is pulled into a world of Japanese folklore and the supernatural as she explores the darker side of relationships, sex and psyche. She must learn to defeat her own personal demons before she can defeat one that is far more sinister.



"Hourglass Heights combines the mystery and suspense of a supernatural murder investigation with the intense sexual exploration usually found only in erotica. A harrowing and action-packed tale that revolves around my beautiful, but flawed, central character, Detective Marcia Tanaka. I've been told my approach is very direct and, at times, a brutal depiction of the many different and dark ways that people use their sexuality. "

Like most kids who grew up in the small Oregon town of Silver Falls, Toby Hoffman had heard all the scary stories about the monsters living in the neighboring woods of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. Now a teenager, he knows the stories are made up to keep the town’s children from wandering where they aren’t wanted.
Then his best friend, Nate, wakes up covered in blood in the reservation woods, with no recollection of whose blood it is or where it came from. When even more brutal attacks follow, Toby can’t help but wonder if one of the fables he was told as a child might be true. With the help of Rachel, a determined Native American girl who has moved off the reservation and into the house next door, he begins searching for an explanation for the recent carnage. He also develops feelings for his new neighbor, which are put to the test when he and Rachel discover that her uncle may be responsible for the emergence of a legendary monster that does in fact exist.

To make matters worse, there’s evidence that Nate was turned by the beast, and that he has every intention of holding onto his extraordinary new creature capabilities no matter the cost. In order to save Silver Falls from a true scary story, Toby will have to face off against forces he doesn’t fully understand – and his closest friend.

            I am a mother to three beautiful children, they keep me busy. I live in a small town that’s filled with monsters and really nice people alike. I love taking walks around the mountain trails where I live and I love taking trips to the Ocean, especially the South Carolina beaches. The ocean brings me tranquility and refreshes me, but I don’t get to go there often enough. Some mornings I listen to nothing but sad country songs for hours but when I write, I usually buckle down with my headphones and listen to something raw and angry like  Seether,  and Stone Sour.     I can be shy around people but I’m mostly always honest within myself. In many ways, on many levels, I express different parts of myself through my characters. Someone told me once that you are only as old as you feel  and I love that! In fact, I love that idea because personally, have no intentions of ever growing up!  I want to be 18 forever no matter what they do to me. LOL!

Cover Reveal Betraying Innocence by Airicka Phoenix

Wednesday, August 28, 2013
Title: Betraying Innocence 
Author: Airicka Phoenix
Genre: YA/ Horror Romance
 Publisher: Fire and Ash Publishing 
Release Date: Oct 31 2013
Edition/Formats it will be Available In: eBook

Roseanna - Ana - French was happy with her life. Sure she had to move to a strange new town and live in a creepy new house that had inexplicable cold spots, but she could live with that. What she couldn’t deal with was the relentless tapping inside the walls at night, the sinister shadows in the halls or the spirit crawling its way beneath her skin. 


Airicka Phoenix is the best-selling author of the Touch Series with short stories in Whispered Beginnings: A Clever Fiction Anthology and Midnight Surrender Anthology. When she's not hammering away at the
keyboard, she can be found banishing pirates or crawling through the attic looking for lost treasure with her kids. She loves baking, gardening and reading. She also likes to travel and take pictures of everything she comes across. When asked, Airicka describes herself as a sarcastic basket case that has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate, old movies and really bad jokes. She loves to laugh, make friends and write. If she could have one wish granted, it would be to spend one day as a fly-on-the-wall inside Stephen King's mind. If she could have two wishes granted, she would ask for a castle dedicated entirely to her overwhelming collection of books.

Review The Thirteen Hallows by Michael Scott & Colette Freedman

Tuesday, December 4, 2012
Title: The Thirteen Hallows
Authors: Michael Scott & Colette Freedman
Genre: Fantasy/Horror/Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Tor/Macmillan Audio
Release Date:Dec 6 2011
Edition: Audio
Source: Macmillan Audio
Rating:

The Hallows. Ancient artifacts imbued with a primal and deadly power. But are they protectors of this world, or the keys to its destruction?

A gruesome murder in London reveals a sinister plot to uncover a two-thousand-year-old secret.

For decades, the Keepers guarded these Hallows, keeping them safe and hidden and apart from each other. But now the Keepers are being brutally murdered, their prizes stolen, the ancient objects bathed in their blood.

Now, only a few remain.

With her dying breath, one of the Keepers convinces Sarah Miller, a practical stranger, to deliver her Hallow—a broken sword with devastating powers—to her American nephew, Owen.


The duo quickly become suspects in a series of murders as they are chased by both the police and the sadistic Dark Man and his nubile mistress.

As Sarah and Owen search for the surviving Keepers, they unravel the deadly secret the Keepers were charged to protect. The mystery leads Sarah and Owen on a cat-and-mouse chase through England and Wales, and history itself, as they discover that the sword may be the only thing standing between the world… and a horror beyond imagining.





Do you believe in coincidence or fate?  

Can you tell what is real and what is a dream?  Or are they one in the same?

Are there other Realms or just the human realm that we live in?  And if there are other Realms, what kinds of Demons exist there and why are they interested in the human realm?

I was hooked right a way to "The Thirteen Hallows".  There are 9 cd's to tell the story, and I listened to the first 7 in one sitting on my way to Denver!  In my opinion this book has a little bit of everything that makes and interesting story...Murder, mystery, history, realism, conflict, fighting and yes even some sex...

The first chapter had me begging for more.  I thought I was getting to know one of the main characters....and Bam! There are two murders right away....and it never stops...I enjoyed how the story was told getting up to the climax, and how the history of the Thirteen Hallows was explained.  I think Michael Scott and Colette Freedman did a wonderful job at mixing myths and history in the story, and tying up all the loose ends, but also leaving the story open for Owen and Sarah to have some great stories to come.

I would definitely recommend "The Thirteen Hallows" to anyone who enjoys a great and exciting story!
