Rattlesnake Kisses by Robert Ford & John Boden book cover

RATTLESNAKE KISSES by Robert Ford & John Boden

Dallas is a man seasoned by both time and circumstance—a fellow you hire to get certain things done. The kind of man you definitely don’t want to cross.

The Kid is his protégé—his younger shadow with more quirks than Dewey’s System has decimals. He’s loyal as a hound and just as likely to bite.

After being hired for a seemingly easy job, Dallas and the Kid find themselves on a wild ride. Every stop they make introduces lies, violence and memories best left buried. When the control Dallas holds so near and dear starts to squirm free, things get ugly. The routine becomes anything but, and revenge is a bloody dish best served with a .45 pistol.

A DREAM TO DIE FOR by Susan Z. Ritz

In Riverton Falls, a small New England town, globe-trotting bartender Celeste Fortune stands in her kitchen puzzling over last night’s frightening dream—a woman at a window, lilacs blowing in the breeze, someone’s hands tight around her neck. Celeste is sure the dream belongs to someone else. Perhaps she has finally broken through to the collective dreams of Dreamland cult. Hoping her therapist and cult leader will help her untangle it, she heads off into the cold November morning to her final appointment with him—or so she hopes. Her estranged fiancé has delivered an ultimatum: Leave the cult of Dreamers, or end their relationship for good. 

Instead of help, however, Celeste discovers her therapist dying in a pool of blood, skull stove in by his own healing crystal. His computer, containing the intimate dreams and secrets of half the town, is gone. Suspicion immediately falls on Celeste, known to be a rebellious member of his cult. To clear her name, Celeste enlists the help of her old friend, Gloria. But when the two women discover the power of the stolen dreams, they unwittingly become the killer’s next target.

The Place of Broken Things by Linda D. Addison Book Cover

THE PLACE OF BROKEN THINGS by Linda D. Addison & Alessandro Manzetti

Bram Stoker Award® winners Linda D. Addison and Alessandro Manzetti use their unique voices to create a dark, surrealistic poetry collection exploring the many ways shattered bodies, minds, and souls endure. 

They created poems of visionary imagery encompassing death, gods, goddesses and shadowy, Kafkaesque futures by inspiring each other, along with inspiration from others (Allen Ginsberg, Pablo Neruda, Phillis Wheatley, etc.).

Construction of The Place started with the first bitten apple dropped in the Garden. The foundation defined by the crushed, forgotten, and rejected. Filled with timeless space, its walls weep with the blood of brutality, the tears of the innocent, and predatory desire. Enter and let it whisper dark secrets to you.

Proudly represented by Crystal Lake Publishing—Tales from the Darkest Depths.

Scary books make everything so much better! I've been reading them since I was a wee, weird little thing and grew up with a steady diet of King, Koontz, Barker, and Brite and will read and watch just about anything with a hint of darkness.


  • Daniel Eaves

    Rosie’s Ledger. Released on July 1st and getting strong reviews as a page turner.

    Available here:

    A folktale mystery.
    A parable of neglect.
    A descent into horror.
    An isolated twelve-year-old confides in no one except her diary, until one day the diary writes back. As the pages’ suggestions spill violently out into the real world, Rosie Marsden must discover who—or what—is making the entries. And to what dangerous end.

    The arresting second novel by Daniel Eaves blends earthy, well-written drama with supernatural horror and suspense to create a story many have described as “deeply satisfying” and “un-put-down-able.” Set in England in the late 80’s, our story follows Rosie Marsden, a bullied twelve-year-old from a broken family. Touching on issues of childhood neglect and mental illness, the underlying themes give a human voice to those who grow up in difficult circumstances, while the pacy plot provides us with a fulfilling mystery thriller, complete with disturbing supernatural elements.
