Halloween Comes Early! 99 cents October 30 Friday!

What kind of toys does a Satanic toy maker make? How about this cute bunny? Don't you love it!

"They called him the Great Carelli, master of magick and sorcerer extraordinaire. Carelli was a great showman and if that wasn’t enough, he was also a gifted toymaker. His dolls were much sought after. Sadly they were; sadly, because Carelli was also an avowed Satanist and had been for centuries.

“Bah! Satanism! They have it all wrong! The only true things are the pacts.” He recalled his own, made long ago in a cave in Europe; one of the many gateways to hell. Yes, those are genuine.
“I will serve you always Master!” There’s a hell of a lot of bright light and the shadowy figure of he who was known as Satan.

“Go forth and do my bidding.”

He did and he would. And why not? He’d live forever after all, not a bad trade off as he saw it. Besides, what was a soul worth? You go to church all your life and when you die you’re food for the worms. He couldn’t see it.

There was logic there and Satan was pleased. “You will continue with your pursuits.”

And so he did, but instead of fashioning ordinary dolls he made magical ones; very special dolls he had blessed with his own breath, beautiful dolls to do Satan’s work. Well perhaps not that beautiful, it was the eyes. They looked as though they opened into hell with the glint of madness and depravity. Still, they appealed and that’s what counted..."


War surplus from the Eastern Front supplies a quaint little shop of horrors!

Orphaned child vampires

Haunted cemeteries where the dead dance, 

What would Death say if he could speak?

A story of the war: evil comes to a village near you.

What if the world became Dead World?

Valhalla rejects are nasty, worst vampires ever!

Three tales of the Ripper

What are the blood-drenched secrets of The Crimson Club?

A crazed soldier and his famous father!

Zombies in therapy. Hey, why not?

Poetic justice meted out by grave angels and fate

Jonathan Harker has a night to remember!


I grew up with horror legends such as King, Koontz, Poe, Shelley, Stoker and I added Gill to that list.

"There is no doubt that she soars above the endless parade of independent horror authors to shine as a true star in the darkness. With the brilliant anthology House of Horrors she proves why she is a perennial favorite. To put it simply, this is a great assembly of tales anyone would be proud to have in their collection"

About My Writing

This is a special post. Many of you know about the sudden death of my darling husband, John. I am grieving but I'm going to try so hard to get back to writing as soon as I can. I think it will be therapeutic. It will distract me a bit and fill up my time. The thing is, I get better bad days than other bad days. Today, Sunday isn't  a better bad one. But I'm posting this anyway.

I have a book that's finished so that will be a kind of baby stepping back into writing again. I have to go over it. Going over something is not as tough as creating a book. The book happens to be about The Blood Countess, Erzebat Bathory. Glad it's already written. John really liked it so I'm going to dedicate it to him. He did get quite a kick out of all the dark stuff I write. I wonder if my writing will change course a bit. It's too early to tell now. But I'd love to hear from you as to what you think.

If I really did what I wanted, I'd just sit and mourn forever. This is hard to post this, but I thought I should. Not absolutely certain, but I did it anyway.

I'd like to know if any writers that you know of changed course or were thinking of it after a personal tragedy. That would really be of interest to me.

Well, that's my update for now but I will be back in a few days with news of a Halloween special that my publisher scheduled ages ago. See you then!
