Guest Post By Ian McKinney Author of Scouse Gothic: The Pool of Life… and Death

I am so excited to share with you guys this guest post from Ian! It gives you some insight into the book I have been reading and I just think you might love it as much as I have come to. Alright let’s get into it! 😀

 

 

Liverpool and the American Civil War

 

It was only when I began research for Scouse Gothic that I realised Liverpool’s key role in the American Civil War. When the war began in 1861, the majority of Liverpool’s trade was cotton, and the majority of the cotton was supplied by the Southern states. Although Britain was officially neutral, a large proportion of the cotton traders had Confederate allegiances. However, as most public sympathy was with the Unionists cause, they decided to secretly support the South.

Weapons were made in the city’s workshops and foundries, and smuggled across the Atlantic in high speed paddle-steamers, the ‘blockade runners’. Their return journeys bringing cotton and Confederate gold. The Confederate Government then sent agents to Liverpool to control the supply of arms and to arrange for the building of warships, hoping to break the blockade of their ports. Although British neutrality should have made this impossible, a loop hole allowed the ships to be built unarmed and classified as merchant ships, rather than warships. One such ship was the Oreto, which was later renamed and became a famous Confederate raider, the CSS Florida. It was this ship that formed the background for Melville’s story.

The CSS Florida in Liverpool bay 1862. The painting hangs in the Merseyside Maritime Museum in Albert Dock.(The painting of the CSS Florida hangs in the Merseyside Maritime Museum on Albert Dock. )

The more I researched, the more connections I found. The base for the Confederate agents in the city still exists in Rumford Place, its courtyard still cobbled as it would have been in 1862, although it is now home to a different type of agent, an Estate Agents. And the home of the Confederate banker, Prioleau, who financed the building of the warships is still in Abercromby Square, now part of the University of Liverpool. It was later home to the Chavasse family who also play a part in the book.

As I walked around the city, I kept noticing dates on the buildings and found myself automatically thinking, ‘Melville could have lived here – or drunk here, or in the case of St Peter’s Church – prayed here’. The church is now a bar, and so it seemed only natural for him to return there, and it’s here that he meets another vampire, Sheryl Malone.

(St. Peter’s Church today, a restaurant called Alma De Cuba. It’s where Melville meets another Vampire.)

I always find it important to set my books in real places. When I’m trying to work out a character’s motivation it helps if I can be in his or her shoes, walk where they walk, and see what they can see. Often, I’ll get a completely different perspective on a scene just by standing in the exact spot, at exactly the same time of day and listening to what my character would hear and seeing what they would see.

When I was writing the book, I became aware that the city had become a major part of the story, and was as much a character as Melville, Lathom or even Sheryl. Liverpool, like all my characters, is imperfect, neither good nor bad – and often funny.

Carl Jung had once called Liverpool ‘The Pool of Life’ and as it was a book about the undead I had initially intended to call it: ‘The Pool of Life…and Death.’ However, although locals would appreciate the pun it would mean little to anyone outside of the city. I decided that the title of the book needed to convey the playfulness and irreverence of the city, and so that became the sub-title.

Liverpudlian’s are often referred to as ‘Scousers’, sometimes with affection and sometimes as an insult. The name is derived from a local stew called Scouse, it’s also the name of the local dialect and familiar to anyone who remembers the Beatles.

A book about vampires would obviously be a Gothic book.

So, one set in Liverpool could only be: “Scouse Gothic”.

 

 

I want to thank Ian for giving us that awesome guest post ! I found it really interesting. I didn’t know that Liverpool was connected to our Civil War. 

I also want to thank everyone who reads this.  I will be doing my review of this book tomorrow, until then….. Have a good day everyone!!! 

 

Much Love ❤

Two years ago, his kiss left her reeling, but she pushed him away and they never spoke of it again.

Lena Andrews is bad at love, and has no intention of getting better at it.

Men are good for one thing, and love isn’t it.

She’s perfectly okay with finding happiness in her job as a comic book artist.

Yet, she can’t shake the memory of her coworker’s kiss.

Amos St. Clair has stayed the hell away from Lena Andrews for the last two years.

Work has filled his time and he’s on the cusp of making a name for himself. When an opportunity to complete a project that’s dear to Lena’s heart presents itself, Amos seizes the opportunity – even if it means being with the woman he’s avoided all this time.

Through their mutual passion for art and each other, their love blooms like a lotus flower out of a dark, muddy pool. But, is their love strong enough to withstand the challenges posed by the most important job of their careers?

Hilaria Alexander never thought she’d be a writer one day. Reader? Yes. Book hoarder? You betcha. Then, she started reading romance – that’s when she felt the need to write a story. Unfortunately, she didn’t listen to her gut, and talked herself out of it A MILLION TIMES. She finally gave up a few years ago, when the urge to write was stronger than self-doubt. She loves funny, sexy romances wrapped with a huge happily-ever-after bow at the end. Her inbox is always open if you want to chat about one of her books.

Guest Post By Jason Parent: Top 20 Stephen King Books

 

 

Everyone knows Stephen King is the master of horror, but which of his works is his best? Those I hear cited most are: The Shining, The Stand, Salem’s Lot, and It. Though one of these takes my number one spot, I think you’ll find my rankings differ greatly from the hive mind, and some books are notably missing.

 

Despite the polarized climate of social media, I am going to throw my rankings out there. This is just one humble author’s opinions, and I don’t assert them as any better or correct than yours, though I do encourage healthy discourse on the merit of these works that so many of us have read and enjoyed.

 

This list includes all of his fiction titles (including the Bachman books) except Duma Key and Full Dark, No Stars, both of which I’m told are excellent but are still in my TBR pile, and the two novels co-authored with Straub. So without further ado:

 

  1. The Running Man

 

  1. Needful Things

 

  1. Night Shift

 

  1. Salem’s Lot

 

  1. Carrie

 

  1. The Dark Tower: The Wind Through the Keyhole

 

  1. Everything’s Eventual

 

  1. Delores Claiborne

 

  1. Thinner

 

  1. Pet Sematary

 

  1. Misery

 

  1. 11/22/63

 

  1. The Green Mile

 

  1. The Dark Half

 

  1. It

 

  1. Skeleton Crew

 

  1. The Shining

 

  1. The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass

 

  1. The Dead Zone

 

  1. The Stand

 

Up until my recent re-reading, It was a very close second to the The Stand, but perhaps it lost some of its magic in the re-read and in my older age. Also, King may very well be the best short story writer ever to publish in the English language, so other collections sit on the peripheral of this list.

 

At the other end of the spectrum, I’d list Christine and From a Buick 8, as well as The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, Blaze, and Revival, with the caveat that Revival had an awesome ending.

 

So that’s my list. What say you?

 

About The Author

An image posted by the author.

 

In his head, Jason Parent lives in many places, but in the real world, he calls New England his home. The region offers an abundance of settings for his writing and many wonderful places in which to write them. He currently resides in Rhode Island.

In a prior life, Jason spent most of his time in front of a judge . . . as a civil litigator. When he wanted a change, he traded in his cheap suits for flip flops and designer stubble. The flops got repossessed the next day, and he’s back in the legal field . . . sorta. But that’s another story.

When he’s not working, Jason likes to kayak, catch a movie, and travel any place that will let him enter. And read and write, of course–he does that too sometimes.

The book I was given as an ARC was What Hides WithinWhich was his debut book, but this is a new cover. . What Hides Within by [Parent, Jason]I personally think that this cover definitely matches the story’s creepy/horror factor. The King would be proud. My review for this will be up for tomorrow. I loved it by the way, even though I hate spiders with a burning vengeance. Nasty little things. Cue scrunched up face.

 

Here is a link to his book and what it is about: https://www.amazon.com/What-Hides-Within-Jason-Parent-ebook/dp/B078BLQGDB/ref=la_B008XMAMBY_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1516670177&sr=1-3

 

I think everyone should check this book out.

“Good Morning Malibu, it’s another beautiful day on the west coast! I’m Noely Clark, your host: and I’m in
the market for love…”

When the publicity team of the new local restaurant, Going in Blind, began their search for a hot, local
celebrity to promote the wildly popular eatery, they couldn’t have found a better person than me.

Outgoing? Check.

Single? Check.

Open to finding love? Check.

I signed up immediately.

A hopeless romantic with an exceedingly demanding schedule, I’ve found it impossible to find the man of
my dreams—so Going in Blind seems too good to be true! That’s until they start setting me up on dates—
three very different, very attractive, very distinct blind dates—and only one thing is for certain . . .

I’m in big trouble.

Good Morning Malibu,
I’m Noely Clark, and I have a choice to make.
The question is who will I choose; the suit, the rebel, or the jock.

NEW_TBD_Tom Hanks_Teaser.png

EXCERPT:
NOELY
“Just state my name?”
“Yeah. Gives us a quick rundown on who you are, what you do, your interests, and what you’re looking for
in a man.”
I nod and clear my throat. Sitting tall, my hands resting in my lap, I speak directly into the camera . . .
“Hi, I’m Noely Clark, and I’m one of your Good Morning, Malibu hosts. As you know, I’m single and in
the market for love. As a twenty-seven-year-old woman who has had her fair share of rotten relationships,
hookups, and dates, I want to try something new. I want to be thrust into a program where my celebrity
status isn’t the first thing someone knows about me, where I can be known for who I am as a person rather
than how I’m represented on TV.”
“And who is the person you want to be known for?”
Tilting my head to the side, I purse my lips, thinking of my answer. “Just a regular girl who loves Tom
Hanks, would do just about anything adventurous, and would rather be seen eating nachos at a hockey
game than enjoying a chardonnay during a classic night at the opera.”
“And what are you looking for in a man?”
Taking a deep breath, I look straight into the camera. “Someone who will cuddle on my couch and watch a
classic romcom with me. Someone who will challenge me. Someone who is respectful and courteous to
others but also has no qualms about shouting at an official while pounding on the glass at a hockey game.
We don’t have to be a perfect match, because when is that really the case? But I want our match to be close
with a little bit of wiggle room for some give and take, because what’s love without a little bit of
compromise, without being able to adapt to your partner and love what they love? It’s the people in our life
who mold us, and I’m far from being molded completely.”

EXCERPT:
“There is no way that’s what that line means.”

“It sure as hell does.”

“That’s ridiculous. What, did you study palm reading as well as Spanish?”

He chuckles and says, “I just know things. And that line right there means you’re allergic to coffee.”

I shake my head and laugh. “You’re such a liar.”

He strokes my palm with his finger, running it along every line, making my insides flutter and my breathing pick up with each stroke. He’s so close, his body practically on top of mine, his breath pressed against my ear, his scruff rubbing my skin ever so gently. And me, well, see my hips? Yeah, they’re slowly gyrating in his direction. I would like to blame the margarita, or even the music, but I know that’s not the case. It’s my libido skyrocketing into dangerous territories from the way this man lightly strokes me in just
the right way.

“Not a liar, just telling you what I see.”

“Is that so?” I lean in closer and ask, “Then how come I have coffee every morning and I’m fine? Seems to me like you just wanted an excuse to touch me so you pretended to be a palm reader.”

I hold my breath, waiting for his answer.

“You’re right. I did. Now give me a chance to touch you even more.” He retreats from the booth and holds out his hand for me to follow.

I take it without even giving it a second thought. Smiling devilishly, he guides me to the dance floor and immediately spins me into his arms where he takes my hands and links them behind his neck. Pulling me into his body, he places his hands on my hips and presses his forehead against mine. As if it’s second nature to him, he starts moving us back and forth along the dance floor, his feet effortlessly gliding us. Intimidated at first, after a few passes across the floor, I start to feel the music and my muscles begin to loosen up.

“That’s it,” he whispers just loud enough so I can hear him over the music. “Loosen those hips, Sassy.”

A distinct trumpet and cowbell echo through the room, setting the pace and tone to the dance. It’s fast, yet commanding, encouraging us to grind together, and that’s what Beck does. His hands slide from my hips to my butt where he grips tightly and pulls me flush against his crotch. With my legs entwined with his, we stay in place as our hips gyrate together.

Breathless and turned on, I match his gaze with mine, his seductive eyes penetrating any last wall I might have had before this date, and for once in a long time, I let loose . . . completely.

“Just like that. God, you look so sexy.”

Leaning my head back, I let my hair fall behind me and give it a little shake before lifting my head back up
and meeting his lust-filled, greedy eyes. His hands grip my butt tighter and I’m greeted by a noticeable hard-on.

I did that to him, and if that isn’t a turn-on, I don’t know what is.

My fingers start to play with his hair, twisting and turning the short strands, causing his eyes to haze over. Is it weird I want more? That even though our pelvises are pressed against each other, I want to be closer?

The music now flowing through me, controlling my every movement, I glide my hands down to his shirt where my fingers dexterously undo two more of his buttons, exposing more of his tan skin, his necklace in full view now. It’s a medallion I can’t quite make out, but it doesn’t matter right now, because all I care about is the muscular expanse of chest in front of me.

I slip my fingers inside his shirt and dance them across his chest, feeling the sinew of muscles flex with every move we make together.

When one of my fingers accidentally caresses one of his nipples, he growls into my ear and turns me around in his arms, causing me to temporarily lose my breath, that’s until his hands find mine again, securing my butt right against his crotch. I sigh and loop my hand around me to the back of his neck, anchoring me in place while he swivels our hips together, his lips pressed against my ear.

“Fuck, you feel good against me,” he whispers. His breath sends chills up and down my entire body as the music continues to guide me.

I push my butt even harder against his erection, heavy and obvious, swiveling my hips, loving the way I can feel his excitement so easily. I love that I affect him like this.

I’ve never been with a man so comfortable in his own skin that he doesn’t care about how I affect him. It’s like he’s proud of it. Of us.

It’s extremely rewarding.

Feeling the music, we dance slowly in tandem, letting the beat guide us. Still hanging on to him, my other hand now on top of one of his, he starts to feel the length of my leg, his body bending just slightly to reach the hem of my dress. When he moves his hand under the fabric, my breath stills for a second before he pulls away and lifts his hand back up my body until both of his hands reach my ribcage.

Oh God.

His head peers over my shoulder, his eyes trained down the valley of my cleavage. “I told you this dress was going to get you into trouble tonight and the way you’re moving against me, my self-control is slipping, Sassy.”

Taking a deep breath, I move his hand farther up my body and say, “Then let your will slip.”

“Fuck,” he growls into my ear, letting his hand move to just below my breasts. I suck in a breath from the contact and wait for him to move a little higher, but he doesn’t. Instead, he swivels his hips with mine and moves his hands down my sides until they’re resting on my thighs, his thumbs closing in on the juncture between my legs.

The heat level between us rises to inferno in the matter of seconds and my skin starts to prickle with need, a yearning I haven’t felt since . . . well since Jack, but before that, since I can’t remember.

“I don’t know how much more dancing I can do with you,” he says into my ear. “I’m about to combust here.”

I turn in his arms and look straight at him. “Then let’s get out of here.”

The way the words fall off my tongue sound so foreign to me, but then again, there’s not a chance in hell I want to take them back.

“I WOULD BE YOUR DEATHWISH. YOU SHOULD GUARD YOUR HEART WHEN YOU’RE AROUND ME.” 

 

 

image teaser 2.jpg

heartbreak synop.png

Yasmine’s world breaks apart, when she finds her fiancé in bed with another. Shattered, she flees LA and escapes to her second home—her sister’s Key West bed and breakfast. She bumps into her childhood friend Hawk, who went from the chubby boy-next-door to a certified millionaire hottie. Her instincts tell her to run. Even Hawk warns her.

 

All grown up, they’re now opposites—light and darkness, fire and ice, sunshine and cold shadows. She’s on a voyage to heal her heart with yoga and google spells, while Hawk battles his demons with art and meaningless sex. Years ago, he discovered that his wife was a murderer and his marriage a lie. For Hawk, there’s no hope for a normal life. His mind is too broken. His faith in humanity as dead as his ex-wife’s victims.

 

Heartbreak is like death. Both strip away the soul and leave the body as an empty shell.

But the universe has its surprises, and as breezy days go by, Hawk and Yasmine’s kinship in pain shifts from friendship to hungry lust. And although they battle against it, there’s an intense passion bridging between them that they can’t ignore.

 

 

Along a sparkling blue ocean and white sandy beaches, HEARTBREAK HOTEL unfolds into a steamy story about the beautiful ways love can repair the soul.

Review

*** I received this book in exchange for an honest review. ***

I knew as soon as I read that blurb, I was in for a ride of emotions, but I didn’t care because I KNEW this book would be good. Just the writing in Heartbreak Hotel is beautiful, let alone everything else. The way Yaz and Hawk are when together is truly beautiful. They are complete opposites, but that’s what makes them work so well together. Oh and the passion between these two is ignitable. It is all consuming, intoxicating and captivating all at once. Throughout the book you get to see them grow up together and then grow together.

Out of the many friends to lovers books I have read, this one by far is the best.  It is heartbreakingly, achingly gorgeous on so many levels. I just can’t even tell you besides saying that my chest ached the whole time I read this book. It was like I was a part of the story and with them.  I felt it all down to my soul. I will always treasure this book for the gem that it is.  It reminds you to keep going and keep the faith in humanity, even at its darkest.  Now if that isn’t beautiful, I don’t know what is.

Heartbreak Author bio

 

Kenya Wright wrote her first novel during her third year at UM Law school. She dropped out a month after the release and never looked back.

 

Words are power, and Kenya wants to be the greatest wizard that ever lived.

 

It’s an audacity to inspire and teach the healing of love through arousal.

 

It’s this crazy idea that love can not only help a reader escape, but the story can also teach the person about being human, while making them laugh, cry, and hot for more sex.
