Great #Halloween Reads!
It’s that time of year again where I feel a need to do a horror film marathon, and read as many creepy books as possible. On my Halloween watchlist each year, Spellbinder, Skeleton Key, The Baby’s Room, Rosemary’s Baby (original), The Omen (original), The Exorcist (original), Insidious 2 (better than the first one), The Conjuring 1 & 2, and the original Amityville Horror. These are always good go to’s. If it’s blood and gore I want, I’ll watch the original Halloween, Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake (because it compliments the original) and Night of the Demons (the original). My husband and I saw a fantastic one the other night called The Shrine. He’s not one for horror films, but even he liked that one.
What about those of us who like to read? My favorite horror authors include Dana Reed (occult/supernatural horror – much of it out of print, but you can get used copies) and Joe Hill (at the moment). I don’t like the blood and gore books much, unless there’s a good story there. The exception to that is David Owain Hughes’ extended tales of a serial killer ALL WOUND UP, which is fabulously wicked, creepy, sexually explicit and bloody, but in a strange, satisfying way.
And of course here’s the part where I pimp my own Audrey Brice titles. As Audrey Brice I write supernatural thrillers, horror, and mystery/urban fantasy.
If you’re into covens, witches, and the occult, you really can’t go wrong with my Thirteen Covens or OTS series (aka Darkness or Liz Tanner series). Enter the underground of occult practices, witchcraft, necromancy, secret orders, Daemons, devils, and ghouls.
Ghosts more to your liking? Check out The Danbury Ghost, Rocky Mountain Haunt, and Samuel. I also have a free offering here in BONES.
I’ve also contributed short fiction to numerous horror anthologies. In Crossroads in the Dark, I write about a man who is given a choice. His soul, or the lives of millions. In Crossroads in the Dark III: Monsters Under Your Bed, I write about a rebellious Christian teenager who dedicates herself to the Daemonic. In Man Behind the Mask, my story (which you can read for free in the preview actually) is about a serial killer who picks the wrong victim. Finally, in Into the Abyss, I write about about a reporter covering a grisly series of murders in a small town rife with urban legend, only to discover the truth is far more terrifying than any legend.
If you’re looking for something lighter, kinda creepy but with romantic overtones (with lots of kinky sex), check out my Castle Sedgebrook series. Her Demon Lover and Her Demon Wedding.
Finally, this is the time of year for necromancy. On the non-fiction front I have a series of books dedicated to those practicing the art of necromancy. My offerings there include Honoring Death: The Art of Daemonolatry Necromancy, Necromantic Sacraments: A Book of Ritual for Daemonolatry Necromancy, Necrosophy & Invocation, Keys of Ocat: A Grimoire of Daemonolatry Nygromancye, and Keys of Death: A Supplement to Keys of Ocat. All together they are the ultimate collection of Daemonolatry Necromancy books.
I was just,thinking about Samual…
