It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Christmas is a small chink of light at the end of what has been a horribly brutal year. Everyone could do with some help and positivity so Kendall Reviews will be helping to push a variety of authors and publishers over the next few weeks.
As well as all our usual promotions, Kendall Reviews have banners at the end of all of our daily posts and I’ll be showcasing these at the end of each week, with today being this first. These predominately feature authors/books but publishers are more than welcome to send a banner in.
From next week, I’ll be showcasing several publishers, with a Christmas Selection Box that I hope the Fiends of Kendall Reviews will support and pick a few choice titles that take their fancy.
Please support the authors & publishers listed over the next few weeks, if you do decide to buy something then please tweet out about it. Just a quick post saying which title you bought and don’t forget to tag me (@gjkendall) and I can help spread the word. If you can also leave a review either on your blog, Amazon, Goodreads, Twitter that means so much to everyone. Even a one-line review or just a star rating can make a huge difference to a book’s sales.
Together let’s PROMOTE HORROR
Tomb Of The Gods: Brian Moreland
Deep inside the tomb exists a hidden world of wonder and terror.
In 1935, British archaeologists vanished inside an Egyptian cave. A year later, one man returned covered in mysterious scars.
Egyptologist Imogen Riley desperately wants to know what happened to the ill-fated expedition led by her grandfather. On a quest for answers, she joins a team of archaeologists and soldiers in Egypt. Inside a mountain tomb, they’ve found a technologically advanced relic and a maze of tunnels. Dr. Nathan Trummel believes this tomb leads to the most guarded secrets of the pharaohs. When the explorers venture deep into the caves, they discover a hidden world of wonder and terror.
Lights Over Cithaeron: Edwin Black
A lonely hiker makes his way along the slopes of Mount Cithaeron. Haunted by a bloody past he seeks only some peace. But there are forces on the mountain that ought not be disturbed, old places and ancient boundaries that should not be entered. Time waits in the shadows of Cithaeron, the echos of drums long past beat in its valleys.
After a horrifying encounter there is no question of peace. There is only the need for survival.
And the lights over Cithaeron.
The Vine That Ate The Starlet: Madeleine Swann
In New York, 1923, Dolly is a gossip columnist in a world overrun by man-eating plants.
She lives a life of glitz, glamor, and blackmail. That is until she finds a guest at a party dead – half-eaten by the deadly Vines. The girl’s death leads her into a conspiracy of doomed starlets, shady PR Agencies, and an overzealous Immigration Bureau
A Bright Enchanted Suffering: Eric LaRocca
Author Eric LaRocca brings together two chilling never-before-published novelettes which explore the darker aspects of humanity – a world in which horrible things can and will happen in the light of day.
In “You’re Not Supposed to Be Here,” a married couple and their infant child find themselves at the mercy of a seemingly benevolent couple who are eager to play a game with horrifying consequences.
In “Where Flames Burned Emerald as Grass,” a widower and his daughter meet a peculiar gentleman in the Costa Rican rainforest with sinister intentions.
Shocking and disturbing, A Bright Enchanted Suffering plumbs the depths of human depravity and showcases the most fearsome monster of all – our fellow man.
Darkness can still touch you even when the lights are on.
Voodoo Heart: John Everson
When Detective Lawrence Ribaud wakes alone in a bloody bed with his wife missing, he knows this is more than just a mysterious case of murder. His wife is the latest victim in a string of bizarre disappearances. All across New Orleans, on one night each month, people are vanishing, leaving behind nothing but a pool of blood on the bedsheets… and an abandoned heart. Ribaud doesn’t believe in voodoo, but he soon finds himself moving through the underbelly of a secret society of snakes, sacrifices and obscene rituals in search of the mysterious Black Queen … and the curse of her Voodoo Heart.
