8.September.2013


Hello , Hello Readers!

Take my backpack, a packet of biscuits, my glasses Ray Ban, a Harley Davidson and finally my IPOD, and I decided to go on a tour of 3 days - 2 posts and 1 Indie - Credible Author Day, described as a magical experience, with humor and terror, the classic touch that is interwoven with modern life. I was saying that could also meet a that another supernatural, demons, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches, one reaper. Books that said contain black magic, curses, places like heaven and hell and a house that leaves you breathless. And yet for all this, if you're a good scout of books find something fundamental in life: love.

In my first  Stop of the day called The Book of Lost Souls, I found that Dreams, magic and imagination, are the engine that you need to make your purposes come true and always: "Believe in yourself and never give up" because until the smaller dream can be realized. Michelle Thanks for continuing to believe in yourself, for allowing us you know about this Little Book That Could.   In my second Stop of the  day called Do not Fear the Reaper I found that our feelings will always be connected to our senses, needs, defects and decisions affecting the people around us, and  also ourselves, but there is always hope to know which is the way we must choose. Michelle show your sensitive side and humane in this book, is something every good reader and fan of yours we appreciate and we value.

 Indie-credible Day, called The Haunting Season: I reached my destination Siler House, With a smile size Cheshire cat , when I saw the cover and synopsis wanted to read it, the mere fact of its rich mix of paranormal horror, mystery,  modern and with the essence of the old stories with part of classic style,  make it a good story haunted houses that currently have been able to publish.

Are you ready to discover this story and your author?









The Haunting Season








Be careful what you let in…Siler House has stood silent beneath Savannah’s moss-draped oaks for decades. Notoriously haunted, it has remained empty until college-bound Jess Perry and three of her peers gather to take part in a month-long study on the paranormal. Jess, who talks to ghosts, quickly bonds with her fellow test subjects. One is a girl possessed. Another just wants to forget. The third is a guy who really knows how to turn up the August heat, not to mention Jess’s heart rate…when he’s not resurrecting the dead.The study soon turns into something far more sinister when they discover that Siler House and the dark forces within are determined to keep them forever. In order to escape, Jess and the others will have to open themselves up to the true horror of Siler House and channel the very evil that has welcomed them all.6d34a-addtogoodreadsblack




EXCERPT



Voices—that of a woman and a girl—carried from around the corner. Was the girl like her? Did she see ghosts? Jess’s attention shifted from the odd, staring faces above her to the hallway.

“Aunt Carolyn, please!”

“DON’T!” a woman, presumably Aunt Carolyn, replied. “For God’s sake, don’t touch me!”

The source of the voices rounded the corner a moment later—a tired looking, dark-haired woman in casual slacks and blouse, and a too-thin girl of about seventeen or eighteen with long strawberry blond hair wearing shorts. A man dressed in a black suit and red tie followed behind. Unless Jess missed her guess, he had to be Dr. Brandt.

“Allison, you’ll be fine,” the man said. “I assure you and your aunt that you’ll be safe here.”

The woman slowed and turned to offer him a terse smile. “Yes, my husband and I will feel much better when she’s here with you.” She rubbed her arms as though it were winter rather than late July. “Allison’s parents, that is, my sister and her husband, will be in touch, I’m sure. They just need some time.” Her eyes darted in Allison’s direction and Jess swore she saw fear inside them. Not the kind she’d expect from some weird germaphobe afraid of being touched, but from someone who’d just found a tarantula hanging in front of her, or the boogeyman in her bedroom closet.

Or encountered someone who’d done something to permanently scare the crap out of her.

“Well,” Aunt Carolyn replied at last, “if that’ll be all.” She gave the man a cordial nod and hurried past Jess and her mother, almost colliding with Lily and Paul in her rush. Allison’s aunt never looked back, slamming the door shut behind her.

The man in the suit approached them, an apologetic look on his face. “Dr. Gregory Brandt,” he said. He gestured at the thin, young girl. “And this is Allison Giles. You must be—”

“It doesn’t matter who they are,” Allison interrupted. “They should leave this place. This instant.”

For a long moment, no one spoke. Lily came to stand beside Jess. “Awkward,” she whispered.

Allison wrung her hands and managed a smile. Tears glimmered in her eyes. “Are you afraid of me, too? If not, you will be. Just like everyone else.”

“No one is afraid of you,” Dr. Brandt assured her. A smile spread across his face almost too easily. “Your aunt is uncomfortable with the study, that’s all. Non-believers usually are.”

Allison’s eyes cut to Dr. Brandt. “My aunt believes. They all do. How could they not?”
