Whether it’s around Halloween time, or one of the other 11 (boring) months out of the year; you are going to love these 13 stories from Avrin Kelly…

Dear Reader,

I present thirteen stories to horrify you, make you question existence, and even those around you. Thirteen tales of treachery, magic gone wrong and spells done right. Stories about people, just like you, who had a run-in with a Witch… or who are Witches themselves.

You won’t know who the villains are until the end. You won’t know who the monsters are until they strike, but isn’t that the best part about horror?

The unknown?

If you are feeling particularly brave, I encourage you to explore the uncanny world of Witches, with me as your guide. Snuggle down with this creepy read, and come with me into the depths of wickedness and strange magic. To a place where nothing is ever as it seems, where the danger could be lurking in the shadows behind you or right beside you, in the light.

Thirteen tales of terror; every one of them involving a Witch…

– A handyman recalls the horrifying details of a job he wishes he’d forgotten.

– An overly curious English teacher gets way more than she bargained for when she sets out to solve a mystery concerning her next door neighbor.

– A Witch out for revenge on an unfaithful lover, finds he may have beaten her to the punch.

– A veteran cat burglar underestimates a wealthy old woman in the dead of night.

– A young handyman tells what happened when he went to work with his father one Saturday afternoon.

– A Warlock in college is having issues with his unruly doppelgänger.

– And more… Read “Thirteen Wicked Tales Of Witches” and treat yourself to some twisty, turny (is that a word?) Halloween frights!!!

Signed Sincerely,

Your Guide

The Tree: A Thierry Adler Short Story

by Avrin Kelly

Genre: Science Fiction/Dark Fantasy/Horror/Short Story

“I deal with the supernatural, the unnatural, the odd, the strange and the uniquely horrifying things that are only supposed to exist in children’s nightmares.” – Thierry Adler

Who do you call when a tree (of all things) harasses you?

When Claire Simon, a quiet librarian, is tormented by the red oak on the hill near her house, she takes drastic measures and hires a specialist to help. After hiring Thierry Adler to rid her of her strange problem, things really get weird…

Excerpt from The Tree

“So, you are an exorcist, then?” I blurted out in a harsh whisper of shock.

“Not really, more like a jack of all unnatural trade, versed in the occult, I’m trying to help those who have nowhere else to turn and no one who knows what to do to help them.”

Nervous laughter escaped my lips and I shook my head in agreement. “Because who can you call when a tree is haunting you?”

“Me.” He said with a kind smile.

Southern belle Verity Long is back in business—as a ghost hunter. Now all she has to do is visit the town’s creepiest mansion and exorcise a family of vengeful spirits. Piece of cake. After all, ghosts love her and need her…that is until she meets the ghosts of Rock Fall mansion. They’ll do anything to keep their murderous secrets hidden within the cliff-side fortress—even if that means getting rid of one meddling ghost hunter.

With the entire town skeptical and scrutinizing her every move, Verity struggles to uncover the century-old mystery behind the house. And when she stumbles upon a very fresh, very dead body, she realizes there’s more to it than she ever imagined. With the help of her sexy cop boyfriend, Ellis, and her ghostly gangster sidekick, Frankie, she braves the overgrown gardens, the desolate family cemetery, and the haunted mansion that have been locked away for generations. But can Verity unearth the truth before she’s the next one buried on the deadly grounds?

#Review “Do Bugs Wear Shoes? And Other Silly Questions (Kids Fact Book)” by Addie Broussard, Anthony Puttee

Do Bugs Wear Shoes 3D

~~~

5/5 Stars!

You don’t have to have an interest in entomology—or even like bugs—to get a big kick out of Do Bugs Wear Shoes?

Quality, color photographs and concise, easy to understand text will make this book a hit with the whole family.

The silly questions contained in Do Bugs Wear Shoes? not only inform and educate but can lead to more interest and discussion on the insect world and beyond.

I live in Arizona where finding scorpions in the sink or tub is not a rare occurrence and I learned quite a bit from this book. (Although I’m sure I’ll still freak out whenever I see one!)

I reviewed a kindle copy of Do Bugs Wear Shoes? and while the recommended age is 6 and up, my four-year-old grandnephew is getting a print copy for Christmas. It’s never too early for children to learn and being more informed and aware could only help assuage some of the fear of bugs we all grow up with.

I just hope he doesn’t ask me to read it to him! (And I’m not putting crickets in my smoothie!) HA!

Enjoy!
