Here’s a bit more about Boyce and her series. Enjoy!


Grimoire Trilogy #1

The Grimoire turns its own pages and can answer any question asked of it...and Kara Magari is its next target.
Kara has no idea what she's getting herself into when she stumbles across the old book while hiking along a hidden trail. Once she opens it, she's thrown into Ourea: a beautiful world full of terrifying beings that all want the Grimoire's secrets. Everyone in this new world is trying to find her, but most just want to control the new-found power the Grimoire bestows upon her.
Braeden Drakonin grew up in Ourea, and all he’s ever known in life is lying. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. He has one question to ask the book—one question that can fix everything in his broken world—and he’s not letting Kara out of his sight until he gets an answer.
There’s no escaping Ourea.

Grimoire Trilogy #2

Ourea has always been a deadly place. The lichgates tying the hidden world to Earth keep its creatures at bay—for now.

Braeden Drakonin can no longer run from who—and what—he is. He has to face the facts. He’s a prince. He’s a murderer. He’s a wanted man. And after a betrayal that leaves him heartbroken, he’s out for blood.
To survive, both Kara and Braeden must become the evil each has grown to hate.

Release: Vaempires: Zombie Rising

Here's another Halloween read for you. Just released on Monday! I looking forward to reading this one because I want to see how zombies are introduced to this series. I'd earlier revealed this awesome cover, now I get the privilege to give you a taste of the story.


The tale of the Evolutionary War resumes in Væmpires: Zombie Rising.
Væmpires have taken control of twelve major cities. Their leader, Vielyn, seeks the atomic weapons that will bring the rest of the world to its knees.
Vampire forces are reeling. As Linq and Ray race to the royal estate to rendezvous with Cassandra and Daniel, the princess is captured and Daniel falls.
With the fate of world shifting to their teenage shoulders, Linq and Ray must deal with tremendous losses while battling a most unexpected—and undeadly—new foe. 


Ray battled a bruiser whose arms sported a multitude of colorful tattoos, as Linq squared off against the sandy-haired businessman, whose neck perforations had long since healed.
They circled each other, seeking an opening. Linq waved his claws. “Are you sure you want to test your luck again?”
The businessman scowled. “You and your friend might’ve taken down the lot of us, but it’s nothing compared to how many of you we put down.” He spit on the ground at Linq’s feet. “Or how many more we’ll put down.”
The væmpire’s words struck home. Images and feelings crowded at the edge of Linq’s perceptions, a tsunami of them—all of them related to the horrific events of the last twenty-four hours, all of them clamoring and vying for attention. He held them at bay, because distraction meant death, but their intrusion caused his body to relax and his claws to retract.
Sensing an opening, the væmpire attacked, coming straight at Linq in a full-frontal assault.
Standing his ground, Linq swept the væmpire’s claws to the side with his left hand. With his right, he clubbed the vaempire on the side of the head, a thunderous shot that drove the businessman back three steps.
Linq moved in to follow it up with a decisive blow, his senses already searching for new threats. Claws stained black from spilling so much blood extended on impulse and flashed toward the væmpire’s neck.
They slashed nothing but air as the sandy-haired man dropped into a forward roll.
Linq let him roll by, and turned with a sigh. It was almost too easy. The man had obviously received no instruction in hand-to-hand fighting, or else he’d know that you never turn your back on an opponent.
The væmpire came out of his roll and jumped to his feet. He realized his mistake—he had rolled past Linq, but was facing the wrong direction—in time to flinch as Linq’s claws separated his head from his neck.
Crimson blood spurted as the body and head fell in opposite directions. Hot væmpire blood that smelled like rancid meat hit the sidewalk in uneven splatters, reminding Linq of a drunken man urinating in a back alley.
Then two things happened at once: he sensed a væmpire—yet another new arrival—drop in, while Ray yelled, “Watch out!”
Before he could react, Linq was grabbed from behind. Strong arms encircled him—hot, sweaty væmpire arms that felt like steel pincers. Linq’s own arms were pinned to his sides as his adversary squeezed him like a vise.
The pressure was tremendous and Linq panicked, throwing his head back in an attempt to crush the væmpire’s nose. He knew it was a mistake as he did it, but his reaction was quicker than his thoughts.
The væmpire dodged the blow, and then did the unthinkable: his head flashed forward and he sunk his fangs into Linq’s exposed neck.
Every cell in Linq’s body erupted in unmitigated pain. Nothing in his training, nothing in his imagination—in his nightmares, perhaps, but not his imagination—nothing in his experience or education had prepared him for such pain.
His eyes rolled back in his head and his jaw snapped shut, his fangs slicing deep into his tongue. He didn’t even notice.
Then the væmpire drank.

Halloween Spooks: Demons

No, for once this post is not about vampires. As much love as I have for them, they are not one of the scariest monsters to me. Demons are.

From the beginning of time, mankind has been plagued by these evil spirits, though they weren't called demons. The word demon is derived from Greek daimon, which means lesser god or divine spirit. They weren't always evil, but a lot of daimons were connected to the Greek Underworld. Later the Church used it to mean “unclean spirit.” Which is the kind I’m talking about.

Despite the name, these things have existed through tales from Babylonia, Sumeria, Middle Age Europe, and today. They have many names but they still plague humanity throughout time.  Take the bangungot, for instance, a demon who would sit on the chest of a sleeping person until he/she suffocated to death.  I had someone recently tell me that they have experienced this. He said it literally felt like something was sitting on his chest and he couldn't get up. He was told it was sleep paralysis, but he said he was awake.

So, why do they scare me? In most cases these are beings that have no physical form. That means you can’t hurt them, much less kill them. Salt and iron have been known to deter them because of the interference they cause the ethereal and salt is a purifier. Still, they seem to have no problem affecting you. Spiritual faith and magic seem to have the most effect on these beings, but what if you don’t have either? You’re pretty much screwed.

I have heard personal accounts about encounters with demons from a few people I know. They’re stories were enough to keep me awake at night, unlike most horror movies and novels. Stories about demons that come in the middle of the night disguised as something the person trusts to try and lead them astray. I can’t go into real details on that one, but I can present a scenario.

Imagine, you’re in bed, curled up under your blanket, warm and safe. Something wakes you. You see an eerie glow from you hallway. Your grandmother enters our room, looking like you remember from your childhood, except, something is not quite right. Are her fingers a little longer and sharper than they used to be? Are her teeth more crooked? She beckons you with one hand. Wait, is that a claw?

“Let’s go play,” she says. “ I've baked your favorite cookies.”

A chill runs down your spine.

Luckily, we have fiction to give us a fighting chance. Demons can be killed, heroes can win the day. We have hope.

If you like stories about demons, be sure to check out “APrescription for Delirium” available on December 1st, 2012 on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.

So, what about you? What type of monster scares you the most?

Cover Reveal: After the Fear

After the Fear
by Rosanne Rivers

You have not attended a Demonstration this month.

In Sola’s city, everyone obeys the rules. Stay away from the trigger cameras and regularly update your Debtbook, and you just might survive. But having to watch the way criminals are dealt with—murdered by Demonstrators in the Stadium—is a law Sola tries to avoid. When a charming Demonstrator kisses her at a party, however, she’s thrust into the Stadium and forced into the very role she despises.

Armed with only natural resourcefulness and a caring nature, Sola narrowly survives her first bout. Her small success means she’s whisked off to a training camp, where she discovers a world beyond the trigger cameras and monitoring—a world where falling in love with a killer doesn’t seem so terrible.

Yet life as a Demonstrator has no peace. Sola must train her way through twenty-five more Demonstrations before she can return home to her father. At the end of each battle, only one survivor remains.

Sola could face anyone in the Stadium . . . even a loved one.

Coming December 2012.

Guest Post Jessica Fortunato: HalloQueen's Top 10

Today I'm pleased to have Jess Fortunao visit my site. We have dubbed her the HalloQueen on Twitter for her immense love of all things Halloween.

HalloQueen’s Top 10 Horror Movies This Halloween Season

Most Memorable Quote: “It's time we were on our way. I'm hungry, and the city awaits.”

9. Trick 'r Treat (2007)
Most Memorable Quote: “Always check your candy.”

Most Memorable Quote: “They’re coming for you Barbara.”

Most Memorable Quote: “One, two, Freddy's coming for you. / Three, four, better lock your door. / Five, six, grab your crucifix. / Seven, eight, gonna stay up late. / Nine, ten, never sleep again.”

6. The Sixth Sense (1999)
Most Memorable Quote: “I see dead people. Walking around like regular people. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're dead.”

5. Signs (2002)
Suspense has never been so palpable! In M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs, you are introduced to widow and ex- Reverend Graham. He lives on a large farm with his two children and Brother Merrill.  As the family is still reeling from the loss of Graham’s wife, they begin finding crop circles on their property.  Soon enough there is a full-scale alien invasion.  The pacing of this movie is brilliant, and doesn’t rely on a pumped up soundtrack or too many special effects. Most nerve wracking is how clearly you see the fear and doubt of survival in the adult faces. The two children in the film are innocent and while scared, still feel somewhat secure. When you’re little you think your parents can protect you from anything, even aliens. It’s a little noted part of the movie that I found stuck with me the longest.
Most Memorable quote: “There is no one looking out for us. We are all alone.” ~Graham Hess

4.  The Crazies (2010)
The Crazies, marketed as another Zombie flick, is anything but.  Sheriff David is living the quite life in small town Iowa with his pregnant wife Judy.  A toxin in the water supply has turned most of the residents into violent psychopaths. David tries to make sense of the situation while he, his wife, and two other unaffected townspeople band together to escape the town full of Crazies.  The creepy part of this movie?  The government involvement is nearly immediate and is in no way lenient.  The declaration of Martial Law and the genocide of those they *think* are infected is terrifying to say the least. (Especially because I can easily see it happening.)  Also, as disturbing as this movie gets, it is subtly laced with great one-liners and humor.  Something that is hard to pull off during such a dire situation.
Most Memorable Quote: “What road can they not see? Tell me, what magic road can they not see? Tell me and I'll fucking go!”~David

3. The Skeleton Key (2005)
For starters, you don’t go messing with voodoo kids.  That is just fact. Main character Caroline finds herself in the middle of the dark arts when she goes to the Devereaux home in New Orleans to be the hospice nurse for the ailing Ben Devereaux.  There is a secret ritual room in the attic, and despite his poor health, Ben begs Caroline for help.  The deeper Caroline searches into the family’s past and the history of the house, the more danger she finds herself in.  This movie has all the suspense you could want and the most terrifying internal conflict I’ve ever encountered in a movie.  If you believe in the magic, you can use it to protect you.  However, the magic can only hurt you if you believe in it.  And by the end of the movie, you will believe.                                         
Most Memorable Quote:  “The thing folks just don't understand about sacrifice... sometimes it's more of a trade.”~Caroline
2. The Fourth Kind (2009)
When my sister and I first watched this movie we were so creeped out we had a sleepover, and the Fortunato women are made of stone. The movie, told in a documentary format, tells the story of psychiatrist Abbey Tyler.  After the death of her husband, Abbey continues his research into the insomnia that seems to be plaguing the residents of their home in Nome, Alaska.  What she finds is the unnatural commonalities between all the patients. They think they are sleeping, they dream of a Snow Owl, and then they remember nothing.  Abbey decides to take her research a step further and use hypnosis to get to the truth.  What she finds is downright horrifying.  The residents are being abducted from their beds.  However, the deeper she pushes her research the larger the target on her back grows.   The creepiest aspect to this film?  The similarities it shares with real-life documented cases in Alaska and around the world.  The idea of being taken from your home by monsters you can’t understand or fight is truly frightening.
Most Memorable Quote:  “An encounter in the first kind, that's when you see a UFO. The second kind is when you see evidence of it: crop circles, radiation. The third kind is when you make contact. But the fourth kind, there's nothing more frightening than the fourth. You see, that one is when they abduct you.”
1.       Halloween (1978)
Halloween is the father of the horror genre. I’ve been asked many times why it is a must see.   It was a simple premise for a movie.  A young boy, Michael Myers, murders his sister in cold blood.  Seventeen years later, he reemerges to kill his other sister.  It set the standard for suspense and pacing that left you glued to the edge of your seat.  With a psychopath on a murderous rampage, only one scene actually contains any blood at all.  The atmosphere and a one-song soundtrack establishes the fear from the very beginning without the gratuitous gore that seems so prevalent in today’s horror flicks. Why should you see it?  The fear and anxiety comes purely from a well-developed plot and great actors.  As Michael races to find his sister, and his Doctor races to stop him, the action is intense. Halloween exploded into not only a franchise, but also resurgence of the horror genre, and for that, we thank it.
Most Memorable Quote: “It's Halloween, everyone's entitled to one good scare.”

HalloQueen’s Top 5 Novels This Halloween Season
(And 3 of them are Free!!)

The only content hitting both Halloween lists this season.  While the movie is excellent, you shouldn’t deprive yourself the joys of reading the much more detailed account of new vampire Louis.  In his own words he speaks of how he lived, how he died, and how he lived again. A sexy, heartbreaking, and dark emotional ride, Anne Rice is the Queen of Vampires.

Most Memorable Quote: “People who cease to believe in God or goodness altogether still believe in the devil. Evil is always possible. And goodness is eternally difficult.”

Shelley penned this novel at a mere 18 years of age, only to have it published three years later.  The first edition was published anonymously due to its writer being a young woman.  However, it was released again in 1823, this time bearing the authors name. 
Frankenstein is the running narrative of Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant man who yearns to reanimate the dead.  His intent is to make is creation beautiful, but instead turns into a monster.  Although the monster itself has been called Frankenstein, it was never really given a name in the book.  It is always referred to in a disgusted manner, but never by name.
Why read it?  It is a personal and tragic narrative.  It too spawned a franchise and Shelley’s story lives on in various mediums.
In addition, she’s an 18 year old chick who wrote a horror novel in the 1800’s while kicking in societal norms! Rock on!

Most Memorable Quote: “It is true, we shall be monsters, cut off from all the world; but on that account we shall be more attached to one another.”

You *think* you know Dracula, but you’d be wrong.  This 1897 horror novel introduced Count Dracula to the world.  The novel tells the story of Dracula's attempt to relocate from Transylvania to England, and the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing.  The story of Dracula is told through diary entries, letters and logs.  He is a bloodthirsty killer, very different from the Vampires we see in most fiction today.  Be a twi-hard if you must, but you should investigate where your vampires hail from.  If I claim Anne Rice the Queen of Vampires, Stoker is definitely the King.
Most Memorable Quote: “No man knows till he has suffered from the night how sweet and dear to his heart and eye the morning can be.”

Flowers in the Attic is the only novel on this list that in no way includes the paranormal.  Don’t let that fool you though, it is plenty horrifying on its own.  It is the first book in the series; however, it stands alone as one of the creepiest books out there.  The four Dollanganger children had perfect lives until their father is killed in a car accident.  With no way to pay their bills, the four children and their mother are forced to go to their grandmother’s lush home for refuge.  After a brief happiness, the children are locked in the attic, told that their sickly grandfather cannot see them or their mother will be disinherited.  They at first attempt to make the best of the situation, despite the abuse they receive from their grandmother.  Soon the children realize they are not going to be rescued by their mother, as she has been dating and living a separate life.  The children begin to starve and outgrow their surroundings, and forced to fight for their lives.  Why so scary?  The book could easily happen in an abusive situation.  The religious fear their grandmother instills in them is also very unsettling.  The other themes of incest, murder, and psychosis are disturbing enough to last a lifetime.

Most Memorable Quote: “Sometimes I wish I were dead, because I think we would all be better off dead than buried alive up here!"

Ok, so the jig is up, Wilde is my favorite author.  The Picture of Dorian Gray, the only novel written by Wilde, is also my favorite of all his works.  The novel tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Basil is impressed by Dorian's beauty and becomes infatuated with him. Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, a friend of Basil's, and becomes captivated by Lord Henry's worldview. Lord Henry suggests the only things worth pursuing in life are beauty and pleasure. Realizing that one day his beauty will fade, Dorian proclaims he would happily nail his soul to the devils altar in exchange for eternal beauty. Dorian's wish is fulfilled, and he pursues a life of debauchery, the portrait Basil painted serving as a reminder of the effect each act has upon his eternal soul.  Why is it number one?  It is suspenseful, charming, and at times downright funny.  Wilde’s wit and cynicism make everything the characters do both desperate and intriguing.  What if you had a physical representation of your sins, your soul, as Dorian does?  Would you strive to keep it perfect, or take pleasure in watching it destroyed?  I’ve always found the internal conflict of the human mind to be the scariest thing out there.

Most Memorable Quote: “Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one's mistakes.”

Jessica Fortunato is the author of The Sin Collector Series. Her first novel The Sin Collector, as well as a short novella The Sin Collector: Thomas are both available on Amazon.

Christie Rich

I grew up daydreaming about fairytales, and my love for discovering new worlds has never died. I am not one of those writers who always knew I would write. I thought that was what other people did until one day a few years ago, I took a challenge from a friend and typed my first words. My journey has been wonderful, and I cannot imagine a day where I would ever give up writing now. My love for reading is what fueled my imagination in the first place and still does. When I am not writing or reading, I am enjoying family time with my husband and two children. We live in a quiet community in Utah, and I am so thankful for the rich life I have been blessed with.
