Day 7 of 31 Authors f Halloween – Darcy Coates

If you like stories about haunted houses, Darcy Coates will deliver. She has so many books based on haunted houses, and they are beautifully and horrifically written.

Synopsis for The Haunting of Blackwood House

Could you survive a week in a haunted house?

Mara is the daughter of spiritualists. Her childhood was filled with seances, scam mediums, and talk of ghostly presences.

When Mara left her family’s home, she vowed she would never allow superstition into her life again. She’s ready to start over with her fiancé, Neil, in a world based on rationality and facts.

But her past isn’t ready to let her go just yet.

Mara and Neil purchase Blackwood House, a derelict property outside of town. They’re warned about strange occurrences in the crumbling building. Doors open by themselves, voices whisper int he night, bloody handprints appear on the walls, and cold spots linger in the basement, where the house’s original owner was murdered.

But Blackwood was dirt-cheap. Mara loves her new home, and she disregards the warnings.

Because ghosts aren’t real . . .

. . . Are they?

I believe in ghosts, I love haunted houses, I love reading stories of new residents in haunted houses. I love the suspense that builds. I believe I am rambling.

If you love haunted houses and ghosts, mediums, etc, read Darcy’s books.

Day 6 of 31 Authors of Halloween – John Meaney

John Meaney is one of those authors that you can relate to, especially in the science-fiction world. Growing up and discovering authors, and watching Doctor Who (I mean, who doesn’t?)

Synopsis for Bone Song

Imagine a city named Tristopolis, where tall towers rear beneath a dark, indigo sky, gargoyles glide overhead, while purple cabs drive along the streets. Elevators are powered by boundwraiths. Warmth and power come from reactor piles, deep inside Energy Authority complexes, where the bones of the dead are stacked. Necroflux replays the fragmented memories and feelings of two thousand corpses in each reactor, producing a chaos of mixed identities and suffering that the living would rather not know about.

Tough cop Liutenant Donal Riordan is assigned to protect a visiting diva, Maria daLivnova, who may be a target to those who collect the bones of great performing artists.

But the dark cult is more powerful and secretive than anyone, even Donal’s non-human allies, can suspect. And he has been touched by the bones.

Science Fiction is another genre I absolutely love, especially when it has some horrific scenes. Well, basically anything with horror (even the smallest amount) makes me happy.
