Book Excerpt


Eva screamed, and everybody in the room went silent.
In an instant, Madden was at her side. “Eva, what is it? What did you see?”
Beyond words, unsure of whether this was reality, and still smelling the stench of decayed flesh, Eva pointed at the window.
“There’s something out there,” warned Swanson, following her gaze.
Before anybody could stop him, Madden leapt to his feet, the force of his movement whipping the air past Eva’s face. Gila tried to shout a warning, but Madden was out of the door and round to the window in moments. He appeared at a distance, as if chasing something or somebody, but then stopped and turned back. Approaching the window he shrugged and mouthed the word ‘Nothing’.
“So two of you saw someone out there?” Madden asked when he re-entered the hall. He knelt next to Eva, holding her hand.
“There was somebody out there, peering in from the side when I heard Eva scream,” Swanson argued. “I stake my reputation on it. Eva, what did you see?”
Sure now that she was safe, Eva said, “Death. Fire. The end of this
place. I saw the Behemoth. It hungers for me.”

Excerpt from the Book


"Eva woke to the sound of the television churning out early morning commercials. She sighed.
“Another morning, another hotel.” It seemed to her that since Worcester, she had lost all sense of identity. Not all of that had been because of the anonymity that radiated from Madden, but it had had an effect. With the revelations in her life, she had had no choice.
Throwing on some clothes, Eva opened the curtain and delighted in what Madden had promised would be a spectacular view. The Chattanooga National Park, dominated by the majestic Lookout Mountain lay in front of her. Forests at the base led to scrub and tree-laden slopes, with the grey behemoth dominating the middle. Even from this far away, it made Eva feel insignificant.

It was not the first time in the past few days she had felt that way. Since waking up in the shadow of Mount Rogers a few days ago, their travel had been bordered by mountains the whole way. Even when Madden had insisted they detour to stop at an old friend’s house in Knoxville, it turned out to be the grandest of mansions. Then the friend had insisted that despite Eva’s urgency, they take a trip into the Smoky Mountains. She could not avoid feeling small and out of control."

My Favorite Horror Author: Matthew Harrill

Horror Author Matthew W Harrill was born in Bristol in May 1976, during what was referred to in the United Kingdom as ‘that long hot summer’. Growing up in the town of Yate, he lived with his parents, sister and numerous pets, attending ‘The Ridge Junior School’.

At age 11, he was lucky enough to gain a place at Bristol Grammar School, a respected establishment in the city for over 450 years. Following the conclusion of his schooling, and picking up A-levels in Biology, Geography and Economics, he attended the University of Southampton where he received a 2:1 Honours Degree in Geology following three years study.

Matt has had various jobs over the years. Barkeep, labourer, cleaner, commercial motor insurer. The jobs that have become most important were the simple shop floor assistant at Tesco, since it is where he met his partner of 20 years (and wife of 11 years) Tricia, and the current job at Xerox where he has been implementing stock option and share plans for over a decade. The latter has allowed the bills to be paid so that he can write.

The writing began with a short story in 1999 that expanded continuously until it took on a life of its own and became ‘The Focus Stone’, book 1 of an Epic Fantasy series entitled ‘The Tome of Law’. A second book, ‘The Path of Dreams’ was completed and released, and then for various reasons, came a break in writing with the third installment ‘The Pages of Consequence’ only half finished (and set to remain so unless his publisher REALLY pesters him).

Matt currently lives in the town of Chipping Sodbury, on the edge of the Cotswold Hills, with his wife and 4 children.

If you love fiction and a good horror book, then look no further than Matthew's HellBounce and HellBorne.

The Queen's Pawn Is A Fantastic Book


I started reading a fascinating historical book written by Christy English. The book discusses the life of Alais and Eleanor. The story is about kings, queens, princess, princes, and other royal family. 

The queen falls in love with Alais, who happens to be her ex-husband's daughter. Eleanor was once married to King Louis, but she is now married to King Henry II. Her son Richard (the Lion heart) is to be married to Alias, a princess of  France.

The lives of the Kings of England and France would forever be entwined together, because of the marriage of Richard and Alais. Eleanor the Queen loves Alais and sees her as her own daughter. 

Take time to read this book to learn how it ends. You will enjoy reading a piece of history and learning more about each character. On a scale from 1 (disliked) to 10 (Wonderful), I give this book a 10!

Christy English is a wonderful writer who allows the reader to see Eleanor's and Alias's point of views. This was fascinating to me and I am interested in reading more of her work. 

Thank you to my daughter for giving the book to me as a Christmas present. XOXO

Shenandoah from Happy Tribe

Shenandoah from Happy Tribe

Listen to “Shenandoah”for yourself.
A friend asked me to share his link, but I listened to it after I shared it. I found the song to be relaxing and nice to listen too. I enjoyed listening to the new song that he created, while also listening for the things that he asked me to listen for. I think he did a wonderful job in playing this song. Now, I would like to share it with my readers. Let me know what you think about this new song, which was played by one of my closest friends. Additionally, he has a list of more songs that he has composed, so take a moment to listen to them as well.

Statement from Happy Tribe/ Jan. 3, 2015: "Shenandoah", From "Let me Spin You A Song," a cycle of American songs. While Alan Lomax suggested that "Shenandoah" was a sea-shanty. Others suggest that it is of Native American origin, for it tells the tale of Sally, the daughter of the Indian Chief Shenandoah. She is courted for seven years, by a white Missouri river trader. I have attempted to "paint" the rolling waves into a simple string accompaniment. Listen for cross fades, terraced dynamics, and pans. I hope you will "like" and "share" this first song of my new cycle.- Happy Tribe

Sea Shepherd Gone to Far?

kunneke_whale_wars_sea_shepherd_eco1
Today, my husband and I were watching Whale Wars on Animal Planet. I believe in protecting the whales and in what the conservation society does on most shows. I believe that whales should not be hunted and killed for any reason by the Japanese whaling fleet. I stand by the Sea Shepherd's oath to protect the whales and other sea life. However, do people literally have to die and do the ships have to be so violent against the Japanese whaling fleet?
In the show, " A Commander Rises Special" from Season 13, the Bob Barker put 47 lives in danger when Captain Peter H. decided to place his ship between two of the Japanese whaling fleet. Furthermore, the Captain Luis and crew on the Sam Simon were trying to stop the Japanese tanker from reaching the other ships in the Japanese fleet to refuel. The Sam Simon adverted an environmental disaster with the Japanese tanker ship, by backing off.
Unfortunately, Paul Watson acted as if the captain and crew were cowards, because they didn't do more to stop the refueling. He said they should be willing die to stop the whaling, but is that going to far? You tell me....
