Audiobook Blog Tour & Giveaway: A Reflection of Evil by William Todd

After months of inactivity, Holmes and Watson have two cases thrust in their lap in a single day. First, a mysterious woman from Swansea, Wales, seeks Holmes' help finding her husband who has disappeared in the middle of the night. As soon as she leaves, Holmes receives word that there has been a prison riot with several dead and a few inmates missing. Lestrade is asking for his services.

Holmes believes the two cases are not a coincidence, but he has no idea who is behind it and to what end. They go to Swansea in what could be either a wild goose chase or a setup. Will Holmes unravel the mystery before they get to Swansea? If not what will be in store for them when they step off the train?

I have been writing online since the early 2000’s, primarily writing horror stories in the style of Poe and Lovecraft. I was the 2nd most popular author on the website Stories by email for two years before moving on. I had my first book, a Victorian era horror compilation called Bumps in the Night, published by Mystic Moon Press just a week before they closed their website and never saw my hard work pay off. Afterwards I took publishing into my own hands, became an Indie author and haven’t looked back.

My first self-published book was Dead of Night, another compilation of Victorian horror stories, published September 2016 by Createspace and on Kindle by KDP. After its publication I left my comfort zone for mystery and wrote a short story about Sherlock Holmes in the Conan Doyle style. I loved it so much I then did a longer story A Reflection of Evil, both published in 2017 through Createspace and KDP. I have just release Beyond the Gossamer Veil, another compilation of both Victorian and modern supernatural/horror stories and am in the beginning stages of my third Sherlock Holmes installment.

L'Autrice consiglia...
Cose preziose di Stephen King
In una piccola cittadina di provincia apre una piccola bottega che vende esattamente l'oggetto che un persona desidera possedere. Il prezzo richiesto dal proprietario non è denaro ma un favore da soddisfare quando verrà richiesto. L'avidità porterà gli abitanti a fare ciò che non avrebbero mai pensato. Un capolavoro horror che analizza la mente umana e le sue debolezze.

Il Piccolo Principe di Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Gli adulti da soli non capiscono niente ed è seccante per i bambini dover sempre spiegare tutto. Questa è la frase che meglio spiega l'intero senso di questo meraviglioso libro considerato letteratura per ragazzi ma che in realtà dovrebbero essere gli adulti per primi a leggere. Una favola dal finale commovente che non può mancare in libreria.

Il signore degli anelli di J.R.R. Tolkien
Trilogia fantastica che non può mancare in libreria. Un viaggio indimenticabile attraverso la Terra di Mezzo per distruggere l'anello del potere con particolari e descrizioni che nella versione cinematografica non sono presenti.

Release Tour: Lucifer’s Daughter by Kel Carpenter

We’ve all heard the story of the four horsemen. Harbingers of the apocalypse. Destruction given form. Four of the sexiest—wait no—forget that. You get my point.

So imagine my surprise when I find out everything I’ve ever been told, is a lie.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. Let’s start from the beginning.

My name is Ruby Morningstar. I run a tattoo parlor in Portland with my best-friend, have a pet raccoon, a crazy ex that stalks me, not to mention this one little thing… I’m a demon. Half-succubus to be exact. For the last twenty-three years of my life, that’s the story I believed, but on the day a handsome stranger bails me out of jail, my world is turned upside down, and suddenly I don’t know who I am anymore.

Because the four horsemen aren’t the bringers of the apocalypse.

I am.

Talk about never catching a break.

Excerpt: Author's website

Born in Olympia, WA, Kel Carpenter has lived in over twenty-five houses and four different states, all inside the US. Kel started writing in high school where the origins for her original series, Heir of Shadows, began. It was then that writing changed her life. Fast forward, and Kel is now twenty-two and finishing up college in Atlanta GA.

She has many wonderful friends and her 3-year-old German Shepard, Harley (the self-professed love of her life). They spend their afternoons hunting unknown coffee shops along the streets of Atlanta—when she's not writing or in class that is.
