What would you do if could relive 7 hours of your life? Any 7 hours. What would you do? Would you seek to correct a mistake you had made? Would you spend time with a lost loved one? Would you get revenge on the person who you think ruined your life?

Those questions are at the heart of this unique collection of seven novellas from seven different authors. In each story, the enigmatic character who calls himself Thomas Constant appears to someone and offers them a unique proposition: they can go back and live any seven hours from their past, or they can live for seven more hours. Either way, after those seven hours, they will jump through time to the moment of their death. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s time to Spring Into Horror

23 04 2012

I am happy to be a part of the Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon hosted by The True Book Addict at her Castle Macabre blog. You can sign-up anytime this week until Friday and find the info by clicking HERE. My fiance, Erin, is also hosting some mini-challenges and awesome book giveaways by horror, paranormal and fantasy authors at her blog. Click HERE to go to the site with details on the giveaways and then follow her blog to check back every day. But you must sign-up for the read-a-thon as a whole to win.

You just have to complete one scary-type book this week and any thrillers, mysteries, paranormal-type, or horror books apply for you to be able to enter for the final drawing. Just have fun with it. It’s a pretty laid back challenge. Which is good for me with my hours at work plus hours commuting and tball, softball and soccer practices. I’m sure you know the drill.

The book that I am reading for the Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon is Beckon by Tom Pawlik, a fellow Ohio author.  I had heard great things about his previous books and enjoy reading Christian authors that can delve into the deep side of humanity and the crevices of our mind. He’s known for thrillers with a touch of creepiness, which lends to fulfilling the scary requirement for this read-a-thon. Especially since there are creepy bugs … in a cave…

Here’s the book summary for Beckon:

Some things weren’t meant to be discovered.

Beneath the town of Beckon, a terror hides, lurking in the darkness. Waiting.

Three people are drawn to the small Wyoming town for very different reasons. Anthropologist Jack Kendrick comes to explore the surrounding caves — the last place his father was seen alive twelve years ago. Police officer Elina Gutierrez follows the trail of her missing cousin from L.A. until it goes cold in the near-deserted town. And George Wilcox, a wealthy businessman, is lured to a lodge on the bluff by the promise of a cure for his wife’s illness.

All are looking for answers. But as they draw closer to discovering the town’s chilling secret, the real question becomes . . . will any of them make it out alive?

Everyone is using the hashtag #SpringHorrorRAT on Twitter to talk it up. If you are on Twitter, join in the conversation and have a spooky good time.
