Release Date: November 5, 2019
‘Tis the season, folks. This is the first holiday book I am reviewing for this year and I am quite sure it will not be my last. A Midnight Clear is a small anthology from Black Spot Books that focuses on less-than-cheery yuletide tales that will not necessarily horrify you, but they are certainly not going to wish you a Merry Christmas, either. But, and I say this without reservation, between the six short stories, it will entertain the crap out of you.
The Hungry Ghost Paperback| Kindle

Release date: June 11, 2019
Samantha, “Sam” to her friends, is at a crossroads in her life. Having recently divorced her husband Peter, she’s trying to find who she is as a 30-something college writing instructor in the Boston area. Her brother is happily married with two children and the only inkling of romance going for Sam is Madeleine, a six-years-younger former student who has taken a shine to her for reasons Sam cannot fathom.
But none of these questions will matter soon when Sam winds up in a coma after a vicious car accident leaves her clinging to life.
Tomorrow sees the release of Soul Remains, Book 2 of Sam Hooker‘s Terribly Serious Darkness series. If you haven’t read the first book (and I recommend that you do), and you want to catch up, the Kindle of Book 1, Peril In The Old Country, is on sale all this week for only $.99!
“Darker than the Douglas Adams universe, but lighter than Game Of Thrones, Peril In The Old Country hooks you in with its intriguing world-building, compelling characters, fantastical elements, interesting twists on the supernatural, and perfectly absurd dark humor.”
Definitely grab the Kindle for only 99 cents while you can and then move right along to Book 2, which is only $5.99 for the Kindle (order now).
Apocalypse 5 Archive of the Fives, Book 1 Paperback | Kindle
By Stacey Rourke
Publisher: Black Spot Books
Release date: February 12, 2019
In Apocalypse 5, author Stacey Rourke introduces readers to a team of five early teenaged warriors who train mercilessly to protect the people of the starship AT-1-NS from any and all threats. They run virtual reality simulations nearly daily, but, despite being virtual, these trainings can result in death to the team members if they fail, at which time a new member will be promoted to the A5’s elite ranks.
You would think that in a place where swear words conjure goblins, cannibals live in the neighboring nation, and blood-drained murder victims are turning up, that paperwork would be the least of your worries. But in Sam Hooker‘s absurdly humorous fantasy tale Peril In The Old Country, over-anxious accountant Sloot Peril’s life is turned upside down after he revises a coworker’s disastrously written report and is suddenly propelled into an aristocratic world of adventure, intrigue, murder plots, double-crossing, and much more.
