By Diane Holmes

Supernatural thrillers bring the best of thriller fiction and the best of the horror and paranormal worlds together into one spine-tingling read.  In his latest book, IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER, the small town of Hulis, Missouri has a killer Christmas Spirit…

FOR THE PEOPLE OF HULIS, MISSOURI, THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS ARE HELL…

Time of Death by Gary Madden

By Virna DePaul

TIME OF DEATH…It isn’t easy being a strong, idealistic, independent young woman in 1952. It’s even harder when you see and speak with ghosts but that’s Melody Rush’s life. While working on the case of a murdered prostitute, Mel is put on retainer by a major supernatural client, namely the Grim Reaper. What does Death want from the young detective? Someone has stolen his mask, the one magical item that gives him the power to execute his dark duties, and unless it’s returned before the last stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, humanity’s existence will be rung out with the last notes of Auld Lang Syne.

The Winslow Incident by Elizabeth Voss

By George Ebey

Ghosts and other strange occurrences are the order of the day in author Elizabeth Voss’ upcoming novel of paranormal suspense, THE WINSLOW INCIDENT.

Summertime 2010. A small town hidden in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Welcome to Winslow, Washington, where all anyone expects is another ordinary summer: tourists taking the ghost town tour, locals cooling off in Ruby Creek, the carnival in Prospect Park. Nothing unusual. That’s because residents here have always done well at keeping order, keeping secrets and keeping the past buried.

Until now.

Courting Darkness by Yasmine Galenorn

By Nate Kenyon

I recently had an opportunity to sit down with Yasmine Galenorn and ask questions about her upcoming book, COURTING DARKNESS:

Your new book, COURTING DARKNESS, is (correct me if I’m wrong) the twelfth in your bestselling Otherworld urban fantasy line. Can you tell us what you find the most exciting about writing such a long-running series?

Actually, COURTING DARKNESS is book ten in the series—I’ve written book eleven—SHADED VISION, and will be starting on book twelve in a month. COURTING DARKNESS comes out 11.1.11. SHADED VISION will be released 2.7.12.

I love getting to know the characters and watching them evolve—that’s one thing I love about writing a series. I get to be part of these characters’ lives for the long haul. I get to see what happens as they grow and as the months/years roll by. I also love the world building. Each book expands the worlds I’ve created. It’s like being an adventurer—in each book I explore a little further into the environments I create, along with the mythologies and cultures of the worlds.

But when a routine mission to protect a local village in a war-torn region of Africa goes terribly wrong, Ben is presented with truths beyond what his military training and experience have prepared him to accept. With his dying breath, a village elder passes to Ben a gift—a simple ring, unremarkable except for its ever-changing color and the feeling of power emanating from within.

The Taker by Alma Katsu

Alma Katsu’s debut novel The TAKER is sure to appeal to fans of dark romantic fiction, drawing on history and the supernatural to tell a tale of obsession, revenge, punishment and, ultimately, redemption. BOOKLIST said, “Readers won’t be able to tear their eyes away from Katsu’s mesmerizing tale,” while PUBLISHERS WEEKLY said, “Katsu’s vividly imagined first novel is…full of surprises and a powerful evocation of the dark side of romantic love.” The TAKER has been compared to Interview With the Vampire, The Historian and The Twilight series, but is not part of the vampire literary tradition and creates a new myth all its own.

True love can last an eternity…but immortality comes at a price…

The Shadow Guard by Diane Whiteside

THE SHADOW GUARD. They are the darkest of Black Ops. A force operating outside the sphere of the CIA or FBI. Taking their mandate not from the U.S. government, but from magic. And sex.

SAHIR. Astrid Carlson is one of them, a mage on a mission. With her wispy blond hair and those long, long legs, she can make a man forget himself. Until it’s way too late.

KUBRI. Jake Hammond is the only thing she needs, the human conductor who can focus all her strength, bringing her to a peak of power, or shattering her completely. Yeah, she’s got a hundred or so years on him, but who’s counting when there’s an unstoppable assassin to take down—and unstoppable chemistry to take on…

Deadworld by J.N. Duncan

by C.E. Lawrence

Recently, I had an opportunity to sit down with author J.N. Duncan to discuss writing, publishing and his new novel, Deadworld.

I see that you live and work in Ohio.  Have you ever lived elsewhere, and if so, did it contribute in any way to your writing?

I’ve been in Ohio since 1999. I moved here so kids could be around extended family. Prior to that, I’ve lived in Oregon, Idaho, Colorado, and California. While I can’t say these particular places have done much to inspire my writing, growing up away from my grandparents in California, I was flown there each summer until I was about 14, and my grandmother was a mystery writer. Seeing her work, the electric typewriter and the reams of paper was a very cool thing for me. She inspired me to start writing, and her connections to other authors helped cement my goal of some day publishing a novel. Well known children’s author, Eve Bunting was in her writer’s group, and she critiqued the first chapter of my fantasy novel way back when (I was 14 at the time). Her simple words, “You have talent, keep at it,” may be the single most important six words I’ve ever heard regarding my writing journey.

Vegas Knights by Matt Forbeck

By L. Dean Murphy

With fourteen previous titles, Matt Forbeck now delivers an intriguing tale of a magic “show” on the Vegas Strip, only college freshmen Jackson Wisdom and Bill Chancey try using what they learned in Magic 101 to snooker the Big Boys. This is no mousy Rat Pack!

Think Ocean’s Eleven, using magic as an instrument for the heist. What happens in Vegas is that these two young men should never stay in Vegas, which harbors a dark, magical secret all its own. The whole place is run by magic—it’s founded on magic—and Jackson and Bill won’t believe who’s in charge. Forbeck added: “The young protagonists believe they’ve figured out a way to beat the system, just to find that their edge lasts only for so long.”

Between The Lines feature interview F Paul Wilson

by Andrew Peterson

This month, it’s my honor to feature one of the supernatural thriller genre’s most interesting personalities,  F. Paul Wilson.  I’m not only a huge fan, I consider Paul a friend.  At various conferences around the country, we’ve been on panels together and closed bars after hours.  One of Paul’s most admirable traits is his protectiveness of his family and personal life.  During this interview I made a valiant attempt to break in, but he held firm and the firewall stayed up!  Paul might claim all that private stuff is boring anyway, but trust me, there’s nothing boring or dull about this amazingly talented writer.  And you won’t find a kinder pro in the business.  And if anyone’s curious, the F stands for Francis.

Green-Eyed Demon by Jaye Wells

By Caridad Pineiro

Urban Fantasy author Jaye Wells began her writing life at eight, but it took her another two decades for Jaye to hit her stride.  Trading her career as a magazine editor and freelance writer for her own reality and the world of fiction, Jaye allowed her overactive imagination and life-long fascination with the arcane to create the Sabina Kane urban fantasy series.  The series is a blend of dark themes, grave stakes and wicked humor. The latest release in the series, GREEN EYED DEMON, is on shelves in February 2011.  I recently caught up with Jaye to discuss more about her books and writing process.

Burning Darkness by Jaime Rush

Jaime Rush has taken her affinity for all things strange and unexplained and wrapped them into a series packed with action, suspense and romance.

“The Offspring series,” she says, “is everything that I loved about The X-Files, Roswell, and Highlander. Now that those shows are off the air, I can only get my fix through the DVDs. So I created my own series where I can live the adventure again. Paranormal fiction, in books and television, is huge right now, and I’ve loved and written it for many years.”

Amortals by Matt Forbeck

By Christine Goff

Today you die. Today you are reborn. Today you hunt the man who killed you. When Secret Service agent Ronan “Methusaleh” Dooley is brutally murdered, he’s brought back from the dead yet again to hunt his killer, and in doing so uncover a terrible conspiracy.

Mike Stackpole says, “In Amortals, Matt Forbeck does what all great science fiction authors do: weave thought-provoking concepts through a cracking good story. The morality of immortality is a fascinating idea with which Matt Forbeck deals deftly. If you are looking for a great story with action, politics, great characters and an eye toward what might well be our future, Matt Forbeck’s Amortals is not to be missed!”
