Cheap Reads

Hey Horror Addicts, for the last couple of seasons of the horror addicts podcast I had a regular blog post/segment called Free Fiction Friday, where we gave away a paperback book. For this season I’m switching things up a little and instead of giving away a book I’m going to promote some cheap horror books that you can find on Amazon for less than $5.oo. For my first post I’m going to look at books that are available from the Horror Addicts staff. If you still want a free paperback book or to promote a book you wrote, shoot me an email at horroraddicts@gmail.com and We will hook you up.

21719117From our hostess Emerian Rich we have Night’s Knights. Vampires on a quest for knowledge attempt to create the perfect offspring, but from the shadows an even more demonic evil threatens their immortality. Markham is a simple Irish immigrant striving for the American dream in 1860 when coach robbers cause his untimely death. Severina is an exotic beauty from the jungles of Brazil whose family is brutally murdered by the same man she later calls a lover. Julien is a knight who serves as guardian angel to his family but has no clue about his predestined fate. Will a powerful mortal named Jespa be the one to save them all?

5791268Next up from Dan Shaurette we have Lilith’s Love. Donovan, lonely and getting over the recent death of his parents, asks his long-time friend Christian to move in with him when he relocates back home again to Phoenix from Los Angeles. After the Vampire Hunters find Lilith in New Orleans, she and her Wiccan friend Anna decide to go where they think no one would expect to find vampires — The Valley of the Sun, Phoenix, AZ. Christian, who is also a Wiccan, meets Anna at a Samhain event (Halloween). The chemistry between them is immediate, and when they introduce their roommates to each other, Don realizes Lilith is not only the woman of his dreams — but that she is the woman in his dreams at night.

12348944From our movie and TV guru Kristin Battestella, we have Fate And Fangs Love: Ann and The Viking. The Vampire Family has a long and torrid past, present, and future. In FATE and FANGS, the family’s Occult scholar Professor A. James shares vampire vignettes of love, punishment, struggle, debauchery, lust, humanity, and resurrection. In this medieval tale, scorned vampire mistress Ann leaves vampire family patriarch Antonio behind, travels across Britain, and encounters a wayward Viking named Eric. Will Ann accept her true vampiric nature and turn her Nordic lover into a vampire?

Also our events guy Mark Vale has a book called Silhouette available. Aaron Tate moves into a new house in a little town he doesn’t feel comfortable in. It could be he’s feeling lonely as the new kid, or it could be he doesn’t like the backyard. Or more precisely, the swamp behind the backyard.

21337311 (1)In addition to these four books from our horroraddicts staff we also have two anthologies available. The first is The Wickeds: A Wicked Women Writers AnthologyHorrorAddicts.net presents thirteen horror tales from up-and-coming women writers. This diverse collection of revenge, torture, and macabre is sure to quench any horror addict’s thirst for blood. Between these covers reside werewolves, demons, ghosts, vampires, a voodoo priestess, headless horseman, Bloody Mary, and human monsters that are perhaps the most disturbing. With an exclusive interview of The Wickeds by Sapphire Neal. Lock your doors, bar your windows, and enjoy stories from: H. E. Roulo Jeri Unselt Linda Ciletti Emerian Rich Marie Green Hollie Snider Jennifer Rahn Michele Roger R. E. Chambliss Arlene Radasky Kimberly Steele Laurel Anne Hill Rhonda R. Carpenter All proceeds will be donated to LitWorld, a non-profit organization that uses the power of story to cultivate literacy leaders around the globe.
hahdfront-coverOur second anthology is Horrible DisastersHorrorAddicts.net proudly presents Horrible Disasters. Thirteen authors from around the globe share their visions of terror set during real natural disasters throughout history. Travel back in time to earth shattering events like the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D., the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, and the Winter of Terror avalanches, 1950. What supernatural events went unnoticed? What creatures caused such destruction without remorse? Stock your emergency kit, hunker in your bunker, and prepare for… Horrible Disasters. Proceeds go to help disaster relief globally by way of the Rescue Task Force.

 

 

 

13 Questions with Marc Vale

Welcome back Horror Addicts for season 7 and the 3rd year of 13 Questions!

What we have in store for you this season (in the words of The Rocky Horror Picture Show) is sure to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you! And to get this amazing season started, I had the pleasure of interviewing author Marc Vale for HA Episode 72.

This newly converted Addict has written an exclusive story that “you won’t hear anywhere else!” This dark comedy is titled, A Lid for Every Pot: The Wedding. “It’s about a loving couple that had met on a blind date (a previous story titled, A Lid for Every Pot). And now, it’s their wedding day. Everyone’s invited and the guests all share the bride’s style of… ah… appetite.”

You may recognize Marc’s name from his short stories and novellas Silhouette, The Phoenix and the Turtle, Live at Pappy’s Grill House, Irma, and Metric Modulation. For those of you not familiar with Vale or his work… all of those stories “take place in a fictional town [Marc] named, Blue Lake. Some stories have monsters, poltergeists, or situations where time travel is involved. They are all connected either by the town or by characters.

There is also an audio version of the short stories/novellas titled, All Road’s Lead to Blue Lake. Marc shared with me that All Road’s Lead to Blue Lake actually “has an added bonus story, Teacher of the Year, which features one of my characters who played a very minor part in Silhouette. Fans can listen to All Roads Lead to Blue Lake at: Podiobooks.com.”

For all you paperback lovers out there, sadly none of Vale’s works are available in print. BUT they are in fact available as very cheap e-books and free audio.

Marc’s current project which “came about through the inspiration of all the women in his life,” is Strigoaie: The Romanian Witch. Marc kindly explained to me that Strigoaie: The Romanian Witch “is the story of Marie Fatan in which she travels with her grandmother, Granna Lee, to Romania. This is her dad’s side of the family, which is very secretive. Later, Marie discovers why this side of the family is that way.”

This Gran Turismo and Batman junkie lives to write. In the interview Vale told me a little bit about his love of writing. “The dream is to be only a writer, but reality hits me every morning, say around 6:15am and then I get up and ready myself for my day job. Then, I steal as much time as I can find to plot and plan for my next project.”

As a Horror Addict Marc was excited to share his thoughts on horror. “[I enjoy] the suspense, getting scared, the open possibilities of creating any type of situation and having the freedom to muck it up the way you want to. I’m always rooting for the monsters!”

What was his favorite horror story growing up, you ask? IT by the one and only Stephen King. To quote Vale, “the movie doesn’t do it the frightening justice it deserves. Read the book, at night. Don’t worry, nothing will happen to you, clowns are your friends, aren’t they?”

For those of you aching for more of Marc’s work, fear not. He’s got plenty of projects on the way. “First I am going to finish Strigoaie: The Romanian Witch. Then I’m going to start working on a novella titled, One Summer at Camp Falcon. And after that, I’ll begin working on, The Back Roads to Blue Lake (another short story collection) and an idea struck me recently to write another Strigoaie book. The story’s been playing in my head a little bit as I wash dishes, which is where ALL my ideas come from.”
