Meet the authors from the MIST...


Today, it is my pleasure to step aside for the next few days and allow the wonderful authors who will be featured in Tales from the Mist (available October 17th EVERYWHERE!), a wonderful anthology that captures the thrills of the season. As a fan of horror, I was honored to receive an ARC as well as a request to write a blurb for the cover. They were gracious enough to give me plenty of time to read the anthology first before agreeing, and now it is my distinct honor to present these authors to you.


First up, the lovely and talented Cate Dean (The Messenger):

Cate Dean has been writing since she could hold a pen in her hand and put more than two words together on paper. She grew up losing herself in the wilds of fantasy worlds, and has had some of her own adventures while tromping through the UK, and a few other parts of the world. A lover of all things supernatural, she infuses that love into her stories, giving them a unique edge. When she's not writing, she loves cooking, scaring herself silly in the local cemeteries, and reading pretty much anything she can get her hands on.

Rest For The Wicked – The Claire Wiche Chronicles Book 1

book blurb:

She's running from her past. And running out of time.

Claire Wiche is an ordinary woman, running her Wicca shop, The Wiche's Broom, in an ordinary California beach town. But Claire wasn't always ordinary, and she isn't quite human. She hides a secret, and a past she thought she had put behind her.

A past that is about to explode into her present.

When it does, and everyone she loves is in danger, Claire must face up to her past - and become what she left behind in order to save them.

A Gathering of Angels – The Claire Wiche Chronicles Book 2

An enemy bent on vengeance and possession, whatever the cost.

Trapped, alone, Claire has to find the strength to stand against what she knows she can't defeat. And the courage to face the people she thought she left behind.

Now he has been given his final assignment, and he has one last chance. One chance to prove himself, one chance to change his fate.

When Walls Can Talk – A YA Fantasy Novella

book blurb:

A missing prince. A haunted castle. A dangerous man bent on ruling the kingdom - whatever the cost.

When Rosamond and her friend Dan head out on her birthday to explore an abandoned and haunted castle, they expect to find only a ghost or two. Instead they discover the missing prince, and stumble into the middle of a violent, desperate bid for the throne.

In order to save the injured Prince Jaren, and themselves, Rosamond must reach beyond her own violent past to find her courage, and Dan must find the way to his true self.

Their only help is a children's story come to life: an ancient sorcerer whose soul has been trapped in the walls of the castle for centuries.

Can they keep the prince alive long enough to bring him home safe?

Can they defeat the man who would be king?
