Praise for Thorne and Cross:

“Put Bram Stoker in a giant cocktail shaker, add a pinch of Laurell K. Hamilton, a shot of John Carpenter, and a healthy jigger of absinthe, and you’ll end up with Alistair Cross’s modern Gothic chiller, “The Crimson Corset” - a deliciously terrifying tale that will sink its teeth into you from page one.” - Jay Bonansinga, New York Times Bestselling author of THE WALKING DEAD: INVASION and LUCID

“Think Mario Puzo meets Anne Rice … Balance is what Thorne does best ... (Candle Bay) is a love story. A mob story. A family drama. A wise combination of creepy, thrilling, titillating, and good old vampire fun ..." -Michael Schutz, Darkness Dwells Radio

“A great combination of strong characters that remind me of my V.C. Andrews characters, wonderful creepy twists, and a plot that will recall Mommie Dearest in an original take that shocks and delights at the same time. This is a full blown psychological thriller worth the investment of time and money.” - Andrew Neiderman, Author of The Devil's Advocate and the V.C. Andrews novels

Book Spotlight: Clockmaker

Today I have another delightful book spotlight, this time for the paranormal steampunk novel Clockmaker by Kristen Brand. Enjoy!


Clockmaker by Kristen Brand



The crew of the airship Sultana is nearly destitute. No one knows this better than its captain, Melek, who’s almost desperate enough to sell her treasured family heirlooms to pay her crew’s wages. Then a reclusive gentleman wearing a golden mask offers a fortune to transport him and a mysterious cargo to Istanbul. Needing the money, Melek can’t bring herself to refuse, even when her instincts warn of trouble.
Now strange noises haunt her airship at night, and deadly warships stalk the Sultana through dark, stormy skies. Melek’s masked passenger refuses to explain his private affairs, and she enjoys arguing with him perhaps a little too much. But he’s even more dangerous than she suspected, and she’ll have to unravel the dark intrigue he’s brought aboard her ship before it kills them all.





Clockmaker is available at:

Book Spotlight: SINthetic

I have a terrific book spotlight for you today, on the sci-fi crime novel SINthetic by J.T. Nicholas. Enjoy!


SINthetic by J.T. Nicholas




They look like us. Act like us. But they are not human. Created to perform the menial tasks real humans detest, Synths were designed with only a basic intelligence and minimal emotional response. It stands to reason that they have no rights. Like any technology, they are designed for human convenience. Disposable.

In the city of New Lyons, Detective Jason Campbell is investigating a vicious crime: a female body found mutilated and left in the streets. Once the victim is identified as a Synth, the crime is designated no more than the destruction of property, and Campbell is pulled from the case.

But when a mysterious stranger approaches Campbell and asks him to continue his investigation in secret, Campbell is dragged into a dark world of unimaginable corruption. One that leaves him questioning the true nature of humanity.

And what he discovers is only the beginning . . . 



Check out SINthetic at:







About the Author



J.T. Nicholas is the author of the neo-noire science fiction series, The New Lyons Sequence.  The first novel in the New Lyons Sequence, SINthetic, is available now.

J.T. was born in Lexington, Virginia, though within six months he moved (or was moved, rather) to Stuttgart, Germany.  Thus began the long journey of the military brat, hopping from state to state and country to country until, at present, he has accumulated nearly thirty relocations.  This experience taught him that, regardless of where one found oneself, people were largely the same.

When not writing, J.T. spends his time practicing a variety of martial arts, playing games (video, tabletop, and otherwise), and reading everything he can get his hands on.

J.T. currently resides in Wilmington, North Carolina with his wife, a pair of indifferent cats, a couple of Australian Shepherd puppies that are in process of destroying everything that can fit into their mouths.

Book Spotlight: Heshayol (The Blood of Dragons: Book 2)

Today I have an extra special treat, with a spotlight on the epic fantasy novel Heshayol (the second book in the Blood of Dragons series) by Joshua Robertson and J.C. Boyd. I also did a spotlight on book one, Anaerfell, which you can check out here: Book Spotlight: Anaerfell by Joshua Robertson and J.C. Boyd. Enjoy!


Heshayol (The Blood of Dragons: Book 2)


by Joshua Robertson and J.C. Boyd




Over a millennium ago, at their father's command, Tyran and Drast sent the Horned God to the Netherworld in hopes of gaining everlasting life. Instead, they sparked a chain of events that led to the near destruction of the Ash Tree and the liberation of the old gods. Now, with the world waning, the two brothers are freed from Anaerfell to travel to the frozen realm of the dead and resurrect their enemy with hopes of restoring balance. Tyran and Drast journey between time and space with limitless magic at their fingertips to face demon legions, forsaken immortals, and the realization that the malevolence of their father is not yet done.

They knew killing a dragon wasn’t going to be easy. Especially not one that was also a god. But they never expected to be punished so brutally, or for so long. Death is no escape when you’ve already slain the Horned God to the Netherworld.


Heshayol releases March 5th. 

Pre-Order for only $2.99 and for a limited time you can get the first book Anaerfell for only $.99. 
  
Available at Amazon:

Interview With Author Thomas McRae

Today I have an interview for you with author Thomas McRae. He's here to talk to you about his writing and his new book, Pimp in the Pulpit Part 2. Enjoy.


Interview With Thomas McRae



Why don't you begin by sharing a little about yourself? 

My name is Thomas McRae and I'm a self-publishing author who has written numerous poetry books and short fiction novels as well. I am also a hard-working young man who is trying to save and buy a nice home for myself and my parents. I don't have any kids or wife but I do look forward to the day I have both just like my buddy Islam Martin who by the way is a phenomenal father, loving husband and a genuine true friend. I only hope when I do find that special lady in my life and we become husband and wife and have kids of our own I sincerely pray I'm half the man Martin is.


Could you tell us a little bit about your latest book?

My latest book is titled Pimp in the Pulpit Part 2 which is the sequel to the first. Both are fictional short novels inspired by my life and the lives of several friends of mine who was generous enough to share some stories about their own families as well. Both Pimp in the Pulpit 1 and 2 are samples of several stories from different sources blended together along with a splash of imagination and creativity.


Who is your intended readership?

My intended readers are anyone and everyone who can appreciate a good and entertaining book filled with drama comedy and suspense. I sincerely believe this book and the original one has all the trimmings in being turned into a Motion Picture film. I only need the right person to read it and see the vision that I see every time I read the books.


Why did you write this book? What was your inspiration?

The reason why I wrote this book is because I like telling stories that are entertaining and hilariously funny. What inspired me was when I was talking to a friend of mine and we both was sharing stories about each other's family. After that I started talking to other friends who had similar or more funnier stories than I. Which led to a vivid imagination and a uncomprehensible story that needed to be told.


What advice would you give a new writer?

The first piece of advice I would give a new writer  is to be patient and focus because your blessing is coming your way. My second piece of advice would be don't allow anyone to discourage you because everyone has a talent and no one has the right to kill a dream or break a soul. And last but not least always give it your all because life is too short to have doubts or regrets.


What did you enjoy most about writing your book?

I enjoyed a great deal first I really like writing things down and rereading it out loud. So I could get a feel of what was going on with the characters and the lives they portrayed and wanted to be. I also enjoyed just being in my own personal headspace living in my own little fantasy bubble and building a story that was not only sincerely entertaining and funny but extremely well said.


What did you hope to accomplish by publishing your book?

My main objective was to expand my horizons and branch out. Most people see me as Thomas the poet which is fine, there is nothing wrong with that but truth be told there is so much more about me I want people to see. And that is why I'm working hard to promote my short fiction novels and any and every book I write from this point on.


What's your next project? Any upcoming book secrets you care to review?

I have so many book projects in the back burner but I'm sincerely leaning towards putting out my newest poetry book I've been working on and its title is fatal impact. Which is going to be a combination of love poems, spiritual poems, personal poems and even a couple of Street Anthem poems. The point of this project is to push myself into a much more deeper and more profound level in regards of my poetry writing. I'm quite certain most people will enjoy this book especially if they keep an open mind.


What is your greatest challenge as a writer?

My greatest challenge as a writer is mostly promoting and marketing myself and trying to get as much exposure as possible. That is one of the tough parts about being a self-published author. But on the plus side you reap the benefits of being independent and self-sufficient at the very least you control what happens with your book and your marketing and you don't have to answer to anyone.




Thomas McRae is an accomplished  poet and author who has written numerous poetry books and short fiction novels. He has been writing since the early 2000s.

Fireside Chat with Travis from the Hell Bent series

Today I have a treat with another Fireside Chat. Our fictional interviewer, Richard Dale, sits down with Travis from the Hell Bent graphic novel series by K Matt. Enjoy!




Fireside Chat with Travis


“Welcome everyone, to another Fireside Chat. I’m Richard Dale, your host. Today, our guest is the genetically enhanced human Travis. Welcome Travis.” Richard Dale holds out a hand in greeting.

Travis’ tail twitches, and he’s clearly appreciative of being considered a human. He reaches forward to shake Richard’s hand. “Hey, thanks for having me here,” he replies with a grin.

“Why don’t we begin with some details of your life. Exactly who is Travis and how did you end up embroiled in genetic experimentation?”

He chuckles slightly at that. “Who am I, you ask…Ask some people from around Hell Bent, they probably know me as ‘that one guy at the comic shop with the tail’. Restaurants see me as a damn good customer. But how would I describe myself?” He shrugs. “I guess I’m just kind of a genetic freak. I dunno. As for how experimentation came into play…well, my sister and I grew up in kind of a shitty home, and I got us both thrown out. See, one of the things we have to deal with back in my hometown is being experimented on if you’re, say, a criminal or a runaway. But lucky for us, we were picked up by this one scientist that sort of adopted us. She had a few things to prove, and we agreed to help her out with it. Fast forward to…” He gestured to himself.

Richard Dale smiles. “So, what are your feelings now towards the genetic DNA experiments you participated in? What are the advantages, or disadvantages, to in essence being part monkey?”

Travis thinks on that one, his finger-like toes flexing a little. “The ones mom did weren’t too bad at all. She did sort of warn Gemmy and I both about some minor discomfort. And I love having the tail and opposable toes. Ooh, and part of the experimentation involved a regenerative factor. I was an X-Men fan as a kid, and always thought that power was kinda cool. On the downside, I tend to get, like, REALLY hungry after I heal from something. The other huge downside of the healing ability is that everyone seems to want to find out how it works. They don’t always ask permission, and when they do, they don’t seem to take no for an answer. But the good points of the experimentation in general? Increased agility, for sure. Plus, it’s kinda nice to know that if I break a leg or something, I’ll be fine in a few hours.”

Fascinating. And what of the difficult situations you’ve found yourself in? I believe you’ve experienced violent run-ins with a serial killer and a maladjusted mage. Do you feel your life has been cursed, or unfair? And how have you dealt with these terrible experiences?”

He cringes at the thought of THEM again. “…You do NOT want to get me started on Jesse or McManus,” he grumbles. “There are a lot of good points about my life, but sometimes I do have to wonder if I’m cursed. As for dealing with this shit? I have the best support system, like, ever. I also tend to stress eat from time to time. But my girlfriend is psychic and has helped me go into my mind to deal with whatever’s going on in there. So it’s thanks to my family I’m not as much of a wreck as I probably should be.” 

"A psychic girlfriend? That must be challenging at times." Richard taps the arm of his chair with a finger. “Tell me about your childhood, your relationship with your father? I know it was troubled. Have you resolved your feelings in regard to that relationship? Any lingering issues?”

Travis’ eye twitches, and his tail begins to follow suit. “Walter…yeah, I’ve always hated that guy. When I found out that making your kid sleep on a closet floor wasn’t normal, that made it even worse. You wanna know how my sister and I got kicked out? It happened when I throat-punched that son of a bitch. Yeah…our childhood wasn’t exactly great. We got put under house arrest for three years for going to a friend’s house. I’d like to say I resolved my feelings, but I really haven’t and am just glad to have gotten out.”

Interesting.” Richard smiles again. “Let’s try a lighter note. What do you like to do for fun?”

Relieved to be on a subject that does not involve his issues with his father, the half-monkey brightens up. “Well, I love comics. So it’s a good thing that the one place that offered to hire me is a comic shop. I also like spending time with my friends and family, spending time with my girlfriend Ivy…OOH, movies. Also like watching those. Especially terrible ones! And then there’s food. I generally like eating.”

“I see. Now for a little introspection. In your own opinion, what is your best trait? Your worst?”

Travis taps his chin for a moment. “Like, physical or psychological? Because if it’s physical, that’d be my hair. Psychological…probably the fact that I don’t believe in giving up. Like, ever. Worst would be either my way-too-big nose and…well, I do kinda have some degree of self-loathing sometimes, where I start thinking that Walter was right about me…”

A sudden interruption of clinking cups and the jingling of bells halts the conversation, as a distinguished gentleman enters the room carrying a festooned tea tray.

Ah, I believe it’s time for some refreshment. And I see you put a bit of holiday cheer on the tray.” Richard frowns slightly. He turns toward Travis. “This is our indispensible butler, Jenkins.” Richard Dale nods at the butler. “Jenkins, our guest Travis.”

Travis offers a small wave to Jenkins, his tail flicking a bit.

“A pleasure, sir, to make your acquaintance. In honour of the season, I’ve prepared some hot chocolate, and cookies fresh from the oven. Would you care for a cup and a bite to eat?” Jenkins sets the tray down and waits.

The half-monkey’s green eyes light up as he notices the hot chocolate and cookies. “Yes, I would, thanks,” he said with a grin. He was something of a chocoholic.

No tea?” Richard stares at the silver pot and sighs.“I’ll suppose I’ll try a cup of chocolate. And a cookie.”

Jenkins pours two cups, serves both men, before retreating back to the adjoining room.

Richard Dale takes a sip of his hot chocolate, a surprised but pleased look on his face, and asks, “Have you ever done something in your past you are ashamed of or deeply regret, that you would undo if you could? Also, what one act in your past are you most proud of?”

Travis scratches the back of his head with a foot, both hands being occupied for now. “Flunking out of college is a big one for me,” he says. “And so was that failure to save a couple of kids from Jesse. I’d promised to protect them, but…” He shivers, taking a swig of hot chocolate to calm himself down. “I don’t wanna think about what she did to them… Now, what I’m proud of? Umm…that might be when I punched Walter. He had it coming, and it got my sister and I out of there. Had we been forced to stay with him, I have no idea if either of us would be alive right now.”

Richard takes another sip from his cup. “Who would you consider your best friend? And who would be your worst enemy?

“Ah, that’s an easy one!” says Travis with a grin. “That’d be Spencer. We’ve been buddies since we were in Kindergarten. He went on to marry my sister, and we all live together now. Spence has always been there for me. Well…except for those three years we couldn’t leave the house. Or that time that he and I got into a fight. But when my first girlfriend dumped me? He took time off from his studies to spend time with me.
“As for my worst enemy…that’s hard to say, really. On the one hand, there’s Walter. He made life Hell for a number of years. But then there’s also McManus…y’know how much it sucks to be called an abomination right to your face? Hm…I’d have to say it’s probably Jesse. She’s done more to me and the people I care about than the others.”

You do seem to be easy-going and friendly, not a loner. Would you consider yourself someone likeable? Do you value friendship and loyalty?

He chuckles a little. “Not sure if I’d be considered likeable or not. I wouldn’t be opposed, of course! And as for friendship and loyalty, hell YEAH, I value those! Seriously, if it weren’t for my friends and loved ones, I’d have cracked a long time ago. So if you guys are seen this…love you all!”

Ah, interesting. Now for the final question, where do you see yourself headed in life? What are your goals, things you want to achieve?”

Travis runs his hands through his long red hair. “I don’t really try to think too much about the future. See, the regeneration thing’s kinda made me start thinking I might be immortal, and I keep thinking of what’d happen if I outlive everyone I care about… But goals? I just want my family to be safe, happy, and as un-traumatized as possible.”

Richard Dale leans forward, holding out a hand. “Thank you, Travis, for agreeing to this interview. It has been delightful.”

Travis shakes his hand once more, smiling. “Thanks for taking the time to interview me,”

The books in the Hell Bent series are a combination of prose and graphic novels, and tend to be a mixture of (somewhat soft) sci-fi, urban fantasy, and horror. It is something of a pet project for her, a pet that she feeds with time, and that feeds on her sleep.
