“No one looks up anymore. They’re always looking at their phones or their feet or the back of the person they are stalking.”   ~ Jack Chaser

“Lions and tigers and bears my ass!” ~ Jack Chaser

“There’s a whole different world you see from the rooftops that no one ever thinks about. You can see things no one realizes. Like people fighting trees. Or flying sex toys. Or cougars on the prowl. Baseball games and peanut butter cookies.” 

“Take a look inside. There’s a whole new world to see when you see the things I see up here.”     ~ Jack Chaser


Cougars, Cookies and Construction is written by one of my very favorite WP blogger buddies, Jack Chaser from The Things I See Up Here.

I’ve posted/reblogged some of Jack’s writing here before. His horror story SERIAL was featured during Coffin Hop 2013 – and I’ve been dying to read more ever since! (You can click HERE to read part one of SERIAL, then follow the links to read the additional segments, up to it’s horrifying conclusion!)

I married into a family of contractors, so Jack’s blog has been a constant source of entertainment for me and The Dark Defender. Now we have an entire book filled with seventeen years worth of on the job shenanigans! Read at your own risk – most of these stories could cause you to fall onto the floor laughing, or break a rib trying NOT to laugh in the middle of the night. But… amid the tales of dildo wars & bathroom emergencies are heartwarming insights into human nature – kindness, friendship, family, and A Legacy of Heroes.

Pick up your copy of Cougars, Cookies and Construction: The Things I See Up Heregrab a beer,  and  join us around the campfire… Jack Chaser has some stories to tell!





Even Hell Has Standards: WRATH by Chantal Noordeloos

Published January 22, 2016 by Shadow Girl

‘Wrath’ is the second of seven short stories in the ‘Even Hell Has Standards’ series, where Chantal Noordeloos takes the reader through the darker side of human nature, and its road to redemption. This is Hell as you’ve never seen it before.

Fatima Oni never had a chance for a good life. Born into poverty, her hopes of anything better are dashed when she’s given away as a child bride to her abusive uncle. Her days and nights become a living hell on earth, and things grow from bad to worse when Fate rips her children away from her. Can she keep turning the other cheek when faced with the ultimate loss, or will she give in to the wrath that boils inside her and take her fight for retribution to Hell and beyond?

In my best ‘Joe Dirt’ impersonation…”When good fetishs go bad, dang!” In a style that only Jack Ketchum can deliver, this story of extreme S&M, and the lengths some people will go to for sexual pleasure, will make you cringe!

Boyd E. Harris tells us the story of Patrice, and how she comes to put her love life into the hands of an online dating service, Agent Cupid, and the bizarre man behind the Agent Cupid program.

February 29th is a day of chaos. The day that shouldn’t be. Thank goodness it only comes once every four years. In this Leap Day themed short by Patcick Shand, Logan learns just how sinister…

#HolidayHorror from StrangeHouseBooks!

Bloody Book Blogger

I’ve completed my [Goodreads] ˙·٠•●♥ 2013 Reading Challenge ♥●•٠·˙ – (ahead of schedule, and beyond my personal goal – go, me!) But, I’m still sitting here wishing I had read so much more! I need more time! More hours in the day, more days in the week… UGH! It’s so frustrating!
I started reading titles from StrangeHouse Books in 2013, and I wish I could say that I’m ending this year all caught up, that I’ve devoured them all quicker than a Cannibal in Fat Camp! ::sigh:: That, however, is not the case. But, it gives me a goal for 2014!!


“This collection of 9 twisted tales of Christmas horror brings together weirdo literary talent from around the world, all with the sole purpose of turning the most sacred of holidays on its head, and making sweet, sweet love to its defenseless ear holes!”

Ho-Ho-Holy Shit, things are about to get messy…
Holiday Horror from Adam Millard

Bloody Book Blogger


Santa Claus is coming to town…at least, that was the plan, but now his elves have started going missing, kidnapped by some insidious figure in a black cloak, and despite the magic swirling about the place, the toys aren’t going to put themselves together. So begins a terrifying game of cat and mouse as Kris Kringle searches The Land of Christmas for his abducted minions, unaware that he is to play an integral part in his foe’s plans.

Krampus is pissed at Santa after lending him his snowblower and never getting it back. His punishment? To build a Human Santapede long enough to stretch around The Land of Christmas, and at its helm, the jolly fat man himself. Can Santa – aided by his best foreman, Finklefoot – get his elves back, defeat Krampus, and save Christmas before it is too late, or will Krampus succeed in creating the ghastliest…

A Christmas To Remember – Celebrate the holidays with Matt Shaw

Bloody Book Blogger

A Christmas 1

Despite having taken the children and leaving him – his wife was coming over, with the kids, for Christmas Day. Not because she wanted to but, rather, a vague attempt of keeping things ‘normal’ for the children. What she doesn’t know, though, is that her new boyfriend is there too….. in pieces. Some of him wrapped up, ready for her to open, under the Christmas Tree and another, sizable, chunk of him slowly cooking in the oven – ready to be dished up with a good portion of roast potatoes.

Who knows – she may never discover the shocking truth of what her husband’s done either and, more importantly, what he wants to do; kill her and cut her head off so he can stick it on top of the Christmas Tree in place of the usual Angel…

YOU decide the outcome. YOU choose the story YOU want to read.

With seventeen…
