A compelling gothic fairytale by bruja and award-winning writer Maria DeBlassie.
The women of Sueño, New Mexico don’t know how to live a life without sorrows. That’s La Llorona’s doing. She roams the waterways looking for the next generation of girls to baptize, filling them with more tears than any woman should have to hold. And there’s not much they can do about the Weeping Woman except to avoid walking along the riverbank at night and to try to keep their sadness in check. That’s what attracts her to them: the pain and heartache that gets passed down from one generation of women to the next.
Mercy knows this, probably better than anyone. She lost her best friend to La Llorona and almost found a watery grave herself. But she survived. Only she didn’t come back quite right and she knows La Llorona won’t be satisfied until she drags the one soul that got away back to the bottom of the river.
In a battle for her life, Mercy fights to break the chains of generational trauma and reclaim her soul free from ancestral hauntings by turning to the only things that she knows can save her: plant medicine, pulp books, and the promise of a love so strong not even La Llorona can stop it from happening. What unfolds is a stunning tale of one woman’s journey into magic, healing, and rebirth.
CW: assault, domestic violence, racism, colorism

Lizzie Borden took an axe . . . and so goes the song depicting the 1892 axe murders of her father and step-mother. Research indicates that a killer gene could be passed down through generations of family members, and evidence begins with Lizzie’s ancestor who murdered his mother in 1673.Chatroom with a View opens with a bone-chilling episode, and what’s left of Troy Cullen’s dysfunctional family keeps him even further from the normal integration with society. Troy’s life further unravels when his ex-girlfriend, Veronica, announces that she is pregnant. Troy loses control and plots to do unto others as they have done unto him. When Veronica digs into his family’s past, she exposes this killer gene; she must try to balance her obsession for a family with shielding herself and their baby from evil. But Troy has his own agenda, resulting in an epic showdown.

I was diagnosed with clinical depression after the loss of my mother, father and husband within three years of each other; all to cancer. 24/7 in-home care, coupled with the loss I felt, left its mark on my psyche.

Depression takes up a lot of my life. Reading and writing are the only things I have found that help (in connection with regular medication), even if only for a short time. To escape to a different world can make a big difference in my mood in real time.

To put things in perspective, when I was at my lowest point, I couldn’t open mail, talk on the phone, or even drive to the store. Walls of sadness surrounded me. As they closed in, tears would fall. There didn’t need to be a reason or trigger.

People ask me why I started writing. My answer is simple: I wanted to create a world into which other people with similar problems could escape. I wanted to share the one place that had helped me for many years.

I have always said that as long as one person finds a little bit of happiness out of my books, I am, in my opinion, an accomplished author. The same is true for every writer out there. Please don’t ever let anyone tell you different.

I read books as well as write them and have visited the worlds many different authors have created. Those worlds not only make me feel better, but give me the strength to face real life again. I want to thank everyone who writes—I want them to know they are making a difference.

Fast forward to today…

Hungry Business: A Short Story by Maria DeBlassie
Genre – gothic, comedy horror, zombie
Page Count – 20 pages
From the multi-award-winning author of Everyday Enchantments: Musings on Ordinary Magic & Daily Conjurings comes a cozy Gothic short story about searching for connection in a world that’s forgotten the power of everyday magic.
Looking for love can be deadly…
You know how it goes. You go out, hoping to meet someone. You wade through your fair share of brainless automatons, lifeless bodies, and ravenous undead good at passing as human.
The more you go out, the less hope you feel and the colder your body gets. But you keep at it. All you need is one beating heart to match your own before yours stops pumping altogether. How hard can it be to find one living, breathing human in a city full of bodies?
Dating.
It’s hungry business.

A gargoyle captures them, and a demon dungeon master makes the calls,

Dread by Jeff Wade
Genre – Horror / Thriller
Page Count – 50 pages
Cover Designer – Jeff Wade
Publisher – Wade Publishing
A heinous nightmare brings Frank bolting upright in bed. Except he’s not in bed. His forehead meets what feels like ten million tons of solid rock. Where is he? How did he get here? He senses something terrible has happened, but what? Sleep steals over him again—and another terrible dream offers more pieces of the puzzle.
The nightmares continue.
More clues are revealed.
But as his amnesia fades, so does his sanity.

~ AMAZON ~

Jeff Wade is a grandmaster and instructor of Taekwondo and wrote the novel Drawer #7, the novella Finding Nowhere, and the short story Dread. He was the Crabb Writing Award winner at Belmont University in Nashville. With over three decades practicing and teaching martial arts, and an extensive background in firearms and gunsmithing, Wade’s writing depicts action scenes with uncanny authenticity. But his stories reach far deeper than that. He has also studied psychology, which he applies both on the mat and on the page. His characters are loaded with ticks and quirks that breathe life into them. The scenarios in which they find themselves are not only difficult, but often heart-wrenching. While his themes tend to the dark side, they are gilded with light. The characters–and the reader–are posed tough questions. Perplexing scenarios. Moral dilemmas. All with a hint of dark humor. Jeff Wade lives in Miami with his wife Chikako, four kids, his dog Lucy, a bunny named Jojo, and a chicken named Mary.
