This is available on Kindle for $4.69 on May 7th.
Although T.W. Malpass is well read, he would consider himself more a student of film than of literature. His main passion is horror, and regularly attends London’s Film 4 Frightfest film festival. Like one of his favourite authors, Clive Barker, he believes that fantasy horror is the neglected offspring of the genre and feels there is a great wealth of originality and talent to be found there. The person that inspires him the most in life is Damien Echols (a talented artist in his own right, who is best known as one of the West Memphis Three http://www.wm3.org/) Malpass hopes to write at least 20 novels before he becomes worm food.

My momma died on a hot August afternoon in 1950, right before I was born. My grandma, Little G, was out picking blackberries for pie making, and my momma-to-be was out hanging sheets on the line, when Little G heard a scream from across the yard. She looked up from her bucket of berries just in time to watch Momma begin a lazy fall, as if overcome by some long-held tiredness. The wooden clothespins flew from Momma’s hands, snapping at the air on the way down, looking for something to hold onto. Momma was dead by the time she hit the ground, her head resting on the damp pillowcase in her hand, her why questioning eyes looking up to God.
I left my hectic life in California to spend the remainder of my days living in the woods on an island in the Puget Sound where life is simple and sweet. When I’m not writing, I can be found out on my four park-like acres running behind the mower, hacking down blackberry bushes, and dodging the occasional Bald Eagle flyby. There is a solid truth to be found in nature; a truth I try to impart in my writing. I write because stories are an important part of the evolution of the soul. A story will not touch the mind and heart of everyone who reads it, but it may touch one, and to me, that’s what writing is all about.
As a lover of fine chocolate, I’m currently working with Lavender Wind to create a line of chocolate products infused with the beautiful lavender they grow here on the island. During the spring and summer months, I can be found at the local farmers’ market in search of luscious greens, fresh goat cheese, and just-plucked-from-the-nest eggs. After a late breakfast, and weather permitting, I’ll sit on the deck and write, or perhaps just stare into the woods and wonder at the beauty of it all.

The demon smiled. “You are protected… for now, but we shall see.” Laughing, Nacurus vanished, leaving a burn mark on the living room floor. Eva sat on the couch and looked up at the girls, who stood there looking stunned. “We need to put some protection spells on the house ’cause he’ll be back, and he won’t be coming alone.”
Growing up, Don was always afraid and fascinated by the Grim Reaper. When he decided to start writing, people told him to write about what he knew. Sci Fi and horror stories and movies have always been tops in his book, so it was only natural that he chose them as his genre. Don was born in 1965 in a small town in South Carolina, moving to Vermont in 2006. He spends as much time as he can being with his children and writing. He is a member of the New England Horror Writers.
Stephen King is my favorite author. I have always been impressed with his ability to make the readers feel as if they were a part of the story

As an avid reader, I’ll read about anything I can get my hands on, but I love romantic-suspense novels. The only problem was I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted. I yearned for stories filled with a fifty/fifty split of romance and mystery. I craved meaning and purpose and for the writer to sweep me off my feet without trying to shock me with graphic or violent scenes. Since it was becoming more difficult to find the perfect tale, I decided to write it. Three years later, I have two bestselling romantic-suspense novels and two bestselling short stories. And now I’m addicted to writing as much as I am reading. I have enough stories in my head to fill a small bookstore, so I hope to continue sharing them with all my avid-reader friends who enjoy reading stories as much as I enjoy writing them.
Favorite Food: Blueberry muffins and Pizza, though, not at the same time.
Favorite Place to Write: I have a home office that looks out over my Florida backyard, while not large, I love watch the pool water as it reflects off the ceiling.
Favorite Music: Pandora is almost always tuned to my favorite station, Yiruma, modern-day piano.
NEVERMORE said the Raven, NEVERMORE…
When Edgar Allan Poe visits The Lake Drummond Motel, and The Great Dismal Swamp, he finds himself caught up in one of his own tales. With his familiar, a crow named Grimm, Lenore, an artist who frees trapped spirits, and others he must unravel the mystery locked away in an ancient fairy tale before it’s too late to save those he loves.
Fans of Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, and Clive Barker will love NEVERMORE!
NEVERMORE was inspired by the author’s reading old North Carolina folklore about two trees thought to contain spirits. Matthew McConaughey would be perfect as Poe.
This is also available on Nook.
Edgar tried to finish the story, to give it a proper ending, and seal away the shadows, but as he worked, the images faded. He fought a losing battle with his mind for control of the words. He heard the loud flutter of wings. He saw the dead man’s blood, seeping into the ground. He saw a woman’s startled face, and a drawing, a tree, and then a stream of faces, one after the other, roaring directly at him and dissipating to smoke as they brushed his eyelashes. And then – as suddenly as it all began – it was gone. He sat stunned, staring at the scratched, torn paper on the table and the ruined, brutalized tip of his pen. Grimm was nowhere to be seen, and from what seemed very far away, he heard a woman’s cry, and the crash of something falling.
DAVID NIALL WILSON
David Niall Wilson has been writing professionally since the mid 1980s. His first novel, “This is My Blood,” won critical acclaim and has become something of a cult classic. Over the ensuing years, David has been president of the Horror Writer’s Association, won the Bram Stoker Award for poetry and short fiction, and had over thirty novels and collections published. His series, The novel Nevermore, originally planned to be a flashback in the next installment of his DeChance Chronicles, blends characters and settings from a great number of his novels, including “Darkness Falling,” “The Not Quite Right Reverend Cletus J.

Favorite Place to Write: My favorite place to write is in my armchair, ergonomic keyboard in my lap and either my cockatiel Tiki Kowalski on my shoulder, or my dog, Gizmo, at my feet.
Favorite Music: If I listen to music while writing, it is usually something moody, like Concrete Blonde, Depeche Mode, Steeleye Span – or old blues.
Favorite TV Show: I love a lot of television shows, but I’m most taken currently with Castle, being a show about a writer – and even more amused by the novels that have ensued, written by a fictional character on a television show about a fictional character.
