The Lodgepole Pine Motel is the setting for nerve-wracking terror when a group of unsuspecting travelers find themselves trapped in a nightmare of violence and mayhem. Madge Fraiser is the kindly old owner of the rustic mountain hideaway, which, during one long night, will become awash with blood, as the guests are stalked one by one by a sadistic killer. Who will live to see the dawn, and who will learn that this is one motel where checking in can be murder?
Here’s a great question for everyone…
THE LAST MOTEL was published 07.31.2011 by LegumeMan Books*, (awww… I MISS LegumeMan!!), so why the fuk did I JUST find it?! SOMEONE really should have recommended this to me years ago! Finger Of Shame, my friends. Finger Of Shame.
A husband and wife…
A pair of petty criminals…
A young man…
And a perverse serial killer…
It’s Halloween night, and the Lodgepole motel is seeing more action than it has in years. The owner can feel trouble coming as she checks in each of the guests. None of them can shake the feeling of déjà vu as they meet, and start to get to know each other. They’ll soon find out they are all linked by events that happened earlier that night – each link/event being more fukked up & twisted than the last!
I’m not going to take the chance of ruining this story for you, so as I’m shutting up – you need to go get this book & read it!! Hurry up, so we can talk about it!! I’m DYING!

*from HorrorFreak News:
“[Cry Little Sister] is a must-watch, epic horror mashup, one that seamlessly edits over 200 genre favorites into 5 absolutely thrilling minutes that left me breathless! The video is set to a heavily electronic remix of Cry Little Sister from The Lost Boys soundtrack and includes samples of iconic horror quotes that complement the lyrics perfectly. What’s more, this skillful audio/visual collage is clearly organized into chapters: Werewolves, zombies, slashers, and more.”

A 50-foot man-eating Easter bunny is on the loose and the townsfolk don’t stand a hop in hell. As the bloodthirsty, floppy-eared killer leaves a trail of dismembered corpses, the town’s only chance of survival rests with a wannabe actress and a crazy dog-catcher. God help them!
The story of a macabre, decades-long human/monster bromance.
A relationship that will last their entire lives, through times of happiness, tragedy, love, loss, madness, and complete darkness. Gear up boys & girls – I cried buckets of tears throughout this one. Read my original review of the book HERE.

In 1975 the small town of Hulis was ground zero in a frantic search for 10 year-old Merrie Frances Callahan, as well as an intense manhunt for her abductor.
35 years later, it seems the FBI would like to pretend it never happened.
Special Agent Constance Mandalay didn’t get that memo…
IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER is based on the short teaser novella MERRIE AXEMAS: A Killer Holiday Tale, (see below) but it tells the whole story of ten-year-old Merrie Frances Callahan’s 1975 abduction, and the present day murders that are somehow intricately linked to that event.

I’ve been a Rowan Gant fan since I picked up my first copy of HARM NONE (I got it autographed, too – teehee), and I am so happy that SA Constance Mandalay got her own story! (soon-to-be-series 🙂 I can’t wait for Book 2: INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE!!). ITBM is going to impact the rest of the RGI Series for me. Constance was already growing on me, but I like her character much more now. Getting to go along with her on this investigation, and see how she handles the (I’m quoting Ben here…) “Twilight Zone” stuff without Rowan being there is eye-opening. I definitely see her a little differently, and have more respect for her. She has earned her place in The Ghoul Squad, haha! I would LOVE to see both Constance and Ben shake off their traditional beliefs and… well… a girl can dream. ♥ Blessed Be!
SA Constance Mandalay is assigned what appears to be a 7-year-old cold case that echos the events of the 35-year-old child abduction. Unfortunately for all involved, the case heats up for a short time each year with a brutal murder that appears eerily staged, and occurs under impossible circumstances.
Undaunted, she faces the task with no backup, a mysteriously redacted case file, and the inevitable murder fast approaching.
Mandalay’s experience as the ‘handler’ for an FBI occult/paranormal expert (Rowan Gant) makes her the perfect choice for this investigation. However, even her brushes with the unexplained still cannot prepare her for the answer she was not supposed to discover…
