I hope you’re having a good day. I am so far! Our weather here is cooling down, but nonetheless, my creativity is not (are you shocked?). So I wanted to let y’all know I have a new story for you. Every once in a while, I just get a hankering to write a little darker than the paranormal romance stories I have on offer. This one is specifically for those of you who enjoy my dark stories.
Hi folks. I hope you’re having a good day. I am so far. Just wanted to pop in here and let you know I’m having a little giveaway. My historically-set dark fantasy short story House of Cards (Reign of Tarot #1) is Free on all Amazon venues today. If you’re in trouble, (and can’t call the Ghostbusters!) can you really bargain with fate and win? That’s what Sinjon (the hero of this story) is about to find out. Does he? You’ll have to read to find out!!
AN HISTORICAL PARANORMAL, TAROT-INSPIRED SHORT STORY
Can you gamble with Fate?
A young nobleman and tarot reader flees the Reign of Terror in 18th century France to find himself dragged into a hellish underworld wherein he is put on trial by a demon tribunal for crimes he never committed. Can he escape his fate, one worse than the guillotine?
Meanwhile, I’m still
waiting for some edits for editing the follow up to House of Cards. (yes, there will be a follow-up). The second installment will be along…when it’s along. Until then, you can pick it up today for free, here. I hope you enjoy Sinjon’s story.
Our friend, paranormal author Clarissa Johal has returned with a spooky new novel, VOICES. Read on for a little about the book. It looks intriguing, so do read on. Oh, and there’s a giveaway at the end of this post so don’t miss that. Without further ado, Clarissa, take it away.

So, it was a very busy morning, but I wanted to pop in here and tell y’all my Gothic short story Sing a Mournful Melody is Free today, Friday, January 23, on Amazon.
At the turn of the 20th century, tragedy has left Maribelle grief-stricken. After her beloved husband is murdered, his body disappears from his crypt. Worse, ghostly voices call from the widow’s Graphophone. Is she losing her mind, or does something wicked this way come?
The story was recently called, “Very atmospheric and nicely crafted. Something to read whilst partaking of coffee by the fire but perhaps not just before bedtime ;-)” by reviewer Bodicia at A Woman’s Wisdom and “A wonderfully creepy little story.” by reviewer Kelly of Reading the Paranormal.

For a little about the short story:
A young nobleman escapes the Reign of Terror in 18th century France to find himself dragged into an even worse fate–a hellish underworld wherein he is cajoled and put on trial by a demon tribunal for crimes he never committed. Can he answer thwart his fate, one worse than the guillotine?
Reviewers have called it: “a quick, fun, and creepy read. I recommend it!” and “a refreshing take on the typical fantasy hero.”~Lizzy’s Dark Fiction
Yes it was one of my first (published–and I say that because I’ve dabbled in it in unpublished works for years) historically set fantasy tales. It later blossomed into a series, and a full book. One that I am revising as we speak. The first round of edits will commence after that. So the follow-up should see release…sometime in the first quarter of next year (I hope. If all goes well). I don’t have a share-able synopsis yet, but will in the near future. For now, the short story HOUSE OF CARDS is free on Amazon. But hurry, because the free day ends tomorrow night! I hope you enjoy it! :) Reviews and of course placement on your Good Reads To Be Read lists are welcome.
As an addendum to my last post, I have a new release! Entitled “Sing A Mournful Melody” it’s a piece I have been sitting on for quite a while. Thanks to my mentor, Patty G. Henderson, it finally sees the light of day. :) Set in 1900, it is a short historical Gothic fantasy–with vampires. :) Yes, yes, I know, but I couldn’t resist. My heroine (Maribelle) needed someone extraordinary to…well, you’ll have to read it yourself to see what she needs him for.
