Day 13 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – Deborah Harkness

I love anything with witches (apparently I love anything, but of course, it is Halloween), and vampires are number two on my list. It does not matter if it is horrific or not, witches are just amazing. I love the way Deborah writes, and I put her up there with Alice Hoffman.

Synopsis for A Discovery of Witches

Deborah Harkness’s sparkling debut, A Discovery of Witches, has brought her into the spotlight and galvanized fans around the world. In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and a descendant of witches, discovers a long-long and enchanted alchemical manuscript, Ashmole 782, deep in Oxford’s Bodleian Library. It’s reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont.

Harkness has created a universe to rival those of Anne Rice, Diana Gabaldon, and Elizabeth Kostova, and she adds a scholar’s depth to this riveting tale of magic and suspense. The story continues in book two, Shadow of Night, and concludes with The Book of Life

Day 8 of 31 Authors of Halloween – Scott Thomas

This author here is a Jack-of-all-Trades. Mr. Thomas has written television shows and movies that you see on Netflix, Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and more! He was recognized by the American Library Association for top horror writer of 2017!

Synopsis for Kill Creek

At the end of a dark prairie road, nearly forgotten in the Kansas countryside, is the Finch House. For years it has remained empty, overgrown, abandoned. Soon the door will be opened for the first time in decades. But something is waiting, lurking in the shadows, anxious to meet its new guests . . .

When best-selling horror author Sam McGarver is invited to spend Halloween night in one of the country’s most infamous haunted houses, he reluctantly agrees. At least he won’t be alone; joining him are three other masters of the macabre, writers who have helped shape modern horror. But what begins as a simple publicity stunt will become a fight for survival. The entity they have awakened will follow them, torment them, threatening to make them a part of the bloody legacy of Kill Creek.

Again, there is something about a haunted house that always attracts me. The heart starts racing, you cannot sleep because you are either scared, or you want to keep reading just to find out what happens next.
