Take It To The Top

I had a very bad moment yesterday when I went to pick up my baby bassets from school. I was pretty shook up. I am still a little upset. The school started a new drama session, and the kids were trying theater make-up. I was just sitting in my car, minding my own business, not thinking about cake, when all of the sudden I was surrounded by clowns. MILLIONS OF CLOWNS (two clowns to be exact). THE HORROR! I feel like there should be some sort of law about clown make-up. It would be helpful to post warning signs or something. “Proceed with caution.. Clowns Crossing”, or maybe “This school is a facility known to produce student clowns”. I guess that’s another item for the school board to review.

Turned into a vampire at the age of two, Alyssa has spent the last 14 years pretending to be human in a society who hates “Abnormals” like her. She’s done just fine gossiping with the other girls, wearing pink, and becoming an expert sword fighter in order to vent her killer instincts.

But then the Mage Xavier shows up at her school and introduces her to a whole other reality under her feet — Abnormals Underground, an entire society of supernatural beings hiding under the city of Cumberland. Alyssa can ignore his pleas for her to join them as a warrior — for about two hours. When her father goes missing, Alyssa will have no choice but to become a part of the world she’s fought to avoid her entire life if she’s to get him back from the mayor of Cumberland. That wouldn’t be so hard, except that it turns out he’s a demon bent on world domination.

But joining Abnormals Underground means more than just facing her true nature. Alyssa will have no choice but to draw close to Xavier and share his magic if she’s to have any hope of rescuing her father. Both she and Xavier hold secrets, and Alyssa has only begun to discover that she’s far more Abnormal than she thought…

Konnar doesn’t believe in the power to tell the future or to see into the unknown. But that changes when Amber comes into his life.

Amber, known in her homeland of Wessex, as the Maiden Seer, seeks refuge from her dark foretelling dreams of war. The rune readings she gives to her followers have also become too much to bear. But this can only happen after she fulfills her blackest dream… one in which she foresees herself killing a man.

Konnar hopes the violent memories of his life as a Viking raider and tragic losses will be quieted when he leaves England forever. This upcoming task will pay for his future and provide for the village that depends on him. But, abducting the Maiden Seer and delivering her to the wealthy client goes wildly awry.

Amber seems to know Konnar’s painful secret and claims to foresee a solution. While it enrages him that she negotiates her freedom with this knowledge, should Konnar dare believe the prophetess can help him?

He is her captor, but hiding behind his might and violent history, is a man in need of forgiveness. It is that vulnerable side of him that she learns to love, as she enlists him on her dangerous mission to help the king of England.

The Viking and the Maiden Seer journey throughout England to carry out her prophetic vision. Yet, they struggle with their mutual passion for each other, each unsure of the others true intentions.

But what could it mean, Amber’s dark dream that began it all?

After staying in the Swiss Alps for barely two days, Inspector Cullot knows there are going to be two murders committed at his hotel. He also knows there is only one man who can prevent there being even more… That man is Inspector Cullot himself. So begins another Inspector Cullot Mystery… Cullot, together with his gorgeous, sexy daughter, Stephanie, his faithful side-kick, Detective Sergeant Watkins, and the bumbling, note-taking PC Blunt, put their holiday on hold and set off in pursuit of the killer, in one of the most baffling cases of Cullot’s illustrious career. Who are the two naked victims pinioned to their beds by knives thrust through their bosoms? Who’s the callous killer who’s carried out such hideous, gruesome murders? We meet an array of characters: the still stunningly attractive Madame Laporte (whose charms have an immediate effect upon Cullot himself); the suave, ripplingly-muscled Herr Randimann (whose charms Stephanie is currently sampling); the brazen little minx, Veronique, Madame Laporte’s daughter; the Italian ice-cream salesman, Signor Delitto, with a constantly twinkling eye for the ladies; the secretive Herr Geschlecht, and his sour-faced wife; and other characters, with their unexpected entrances and exits. Which one of them is hiding his (or her) real identity? Who harbors dark secrets from the past, and a burning, uncontrollable desire for revenge? What nefarious deeds have been taking place over recent years at this seemingly respectable hotel? What are the links between the victims and the guests which Cullot and his squad must unearth? Are there even unsavoury connections between the victims and members of Cullot’s team itself? Who is involved, and who isn’t? Will you be able to spot the killer?

Amidst the sparkling repartee, non-stop thrills and series of startling revelations, will you be able to discard the red herrings and fasten on to the important clues? Will you be completely baffled, like the mentally-challenged PC Blunt, or exhibit the incisive skills and investigative acumen of Cullot himself, maybe the greatest detective the world has ever known? There’s only one way to find out…

Genre: Suspense | Horror

A VAMPIRE STORY LIKE NO OTHER…
It is 1914. Dr Joseph Aymon returns to his youthful haunts in Transylvania where he used to accompany the famous vampire-killer, Professor Van Helting, on his vampire hunts. In a world fast throwing off the superstitious clutches of medieval terrors and mythical monsters, Joseph is on a personal quest to prove the existence of vampires. The new sciences, with their cold exploration of the demons which lurk in the recesses of the mind, have mercilessly dismissed the old certainties of evil and purity which Joseph and his master still cling to. Joseph is eager to re-habilitate his and the Professor’s reputation. He can’t wait to come face-to-face with the Undead, and prove all his detractors wrong. It is also his aim to discover the whereabouts of Bella, his first and only love, who vanished years ago, in mysterious circumstances… His quest brings him into contact with a host of characters: the daunting, chilling figure of Count Drace; his voluptuous wife, the Countess; her thin-lipped, haughty and depraved niece, Grimelda; the enigmatic, beguiling figure of the Mother Superior of the local convent; Thomas, the man-servant harbouring a shocking secret… Will Joseph find what he’s looking for, and, if he does, will that discovery bring him release, justification, more derision, or plain, unadulterated horror?

I Know What I’m Doing

I had a dream last night that was was helping produce a show about wrestlers, and when I woke up I felt like I was now an authority on the subject. For a split second after I woke up, I thought to myself I should get in job in show-business. I had a dream about it. It’s not like I don’t have any experience. My confidence slowly oozed away as I woke up and made my way down the hall to the kitchen for my first cup of coffee. Once I was fully away I was plenty happy it was all just a dream, especially since an ex-boyfriend of mine was also in my dream and I looked awful. I was working, I don’t always have time to do my hair and makeup in my dreams. In my dream I tried to avoid him and ran past him as fast as I could. I remember him saying we don’t have to be enemies. I kept running. It’s good to know I have enough common sense in my dreams to just keep running. I think in real life, if I ran into an ex, I would stop and try to have a conversation, only to sound like an idiot and make a fool of myself. I am going to try really hard to remember to run in real life. Maybe I should do a little cardio to get in shape for such an event. Maybe that’s the incentive I need to get me to start jogging.
