Vigilante Of Shadows by Miranda Stork

Book Description

Vigilante Of Shadows by Miranda Stork

The Indie Book of the Day for 26th of June, 2014!

Genre: Horror, Occult

Aodhan clutched uselessly at his head, groaning. He knew it was useless, because the voice was not inside his head. It followed him, skimming across buildings and land. It had followed him since he was sixteen, and it still followed him today, like a memory too horrific to be forgotten… 

Aodhan is a shadow-demon, hardened and cold after years of being alone, after his love, his Entwined, was cruelly taken away from him. He has closed his heart to the world, and now spends his life ridding the world of men like those who took his beloved away, an immortal hit-man… 

Arianwen Harris is a young DCI, working for York City Police. When a known criminal is found viciously killed, she finds herself trailing a hit-man who has seemed to escape clutches again and again…but she begins to find herself drawn to his dark charms and roguish good looks… 

As their two worlds collide, Aodhan and Arianwen find themselves coming together to escape a far greater enemy, one that threatens to create a world far worse than the one they live in. As they battle to hold back the oncoming forces, fate has another plan; one to draw them together and heal their broken pasts together… 

*Please note, this book is in UK English, and contains swearing, some violence, and sex scenes.

I’m Miranda Stork, and I’m addicted. Addicted to writing and reading books, anyway. And chocolate, but that’s another issue – no interventions, please.

I live in the middle of a forest in North Yorkshire, spending my spare time as the wild woman of the woods, scaring small children and upsetting the sheep. On the days that I feel like being civilized, or I haven’t got any unicorns to ride, I sit down and pour the tumbling thoughts in my head out onto digital paper. Mainly the thoughts and characters come out in paranormal form, with a good smattering of romance, because everyone likes a good cuddle. But you can also find strong elements of thrillers, myths, and even dystopia amongst the pages of all my novels. I’ve wanted to write books ever since I first realised that fairytales were not the newspapers of the fairy kingdom, but the imaginings of actual people who wanted to tell fancy made-up stories to other people. From that moment, I was hooked.

Why do I write? Good question. It might be easier to just keep the stories in my head, or even just to write them for myself. But I want to share them. There is no greater delight for a writer than when a reader devours your book, and declares, “Something in that novel resonated with me. And I want MORE.” So grab your lucky clover and a baseball bat (there’s some nasty paranormal creatures where we’re going), eat the cookie with ‘eat me’ tagged on it, and enter through the tiny door into the world of Miranda Stork…

Scars on the Face of God by CG Bauer

Book Description

Scars on the Face of God by CG Bauer

The Indie Book of the Day for 14th of October, 2012!

Genre: Horror, Occult

Hex signs protect every barn and outbuilding. The local tannery spews its poison on land and in the river. And babies disappear at birth. An orphan and one-time felon who earned his nickname from the sound a crowbar makes when it hits a man’s head, Wump Hozer is now the custodian of Our Lady of the Innocents parish in Three Bridges, PA. Wump is old and tired. He’s fought all his life against the tannery’s waste, against God, and against the blind eyes of his good neighbors. Nowadays he tries to ignore the old monsignor’s exploits with the young women of the parish and the strangeness surrounding the local orphanage, and does what good he can for his wife, the church, the nuns who run the orphanage, and the poor orphans themselves. Childhood memories and strange presentments begin to plague him when a brick wall unearthed at the site of a new restaurant collapses, and raw sewage carries hundreds of bones into the pit left behind. It looks like the Devil’s made Three Bridges his new playground. A blasphemous bible will tell Wump why.

I’m an English novelist and short-story writer, living on the Yorkshire coast on a Saxon settlement site a stone’s throw from an ancient spring. The locales of “Torc of Moonlight” are on my doorstep.

History has always fascinated me, especially the day-to-day lives of those who never feature in history’s grand recollections. Undertaking the research necessary to breathe life into these long-ago people regularly throws up direct connections to 21st century living that I exploit in my fiction.

“Torc of Moonlight” is the first of a trilogy of thrillers set in university cities around the eerie North York Moors, and the ebook contains research articles, an author interview, and opening excerpt from Book 2 “The Bull At The Gate”.

Some of my previous print novels have been relaunched as ebooks. “Hostage of the Heart” explores the role of mediaeval battle hostages and is set on the English-Welsh borders on the cusp of the country’s last invasion (1066). “Beneath The Shining Mountains” (originally paperbacked as “A Wife For Winterman”) is a story of love and misplaced honour among a First Nation people on the plains of America in the 1830s. Much of the insight for this latter novel came from my years as a re-enactor of the period – yes, in northern England – the Brits are renowned for being eccentric.

My short fiction covers a variety of genres, from the expected historical and women’s fiction, to horror, literary, crime, SF and fantasy. Kindle ebook “Contribution to Mankind and other stories of the Dark” holds five speculative fiction tales.

For many years I’ve been teaching fiction-writing in various forms, and from this developed the non-fiction “Reading A Writer’s Mind: Exploring Short Fiction – First Thought To Finished Story”. If you’ll forgive the chuckle, it rather does what it says in the title. If you are finding your way into writing, as a hobby or a new career, it can help iron out technical questions.

If you wish to be kept up to date, drop by my blog http://lindaacaster.blogspot.com to read opening excerpts of all my available fiction, or join my mailing list for an emailed newsletter. I can also be found at www.lindaacaster.co.uk and on Facebook and Twitter – all the usual places.

Thanks for reading this. I hope you’ll consider reading some of my work, and enjoy the books as much as others have.
