Today I’m celebrating!
Not only is it Canada Day, but also Indie Pride Day. So I’m spotlighting one of my books today, both here and as part of the Brain to Books Indie Pride Day Book Blast. I’m also spending the day doing not one, but three spots as part of the B2B Indie Pride Day Author Showcase hosted over on Goodreads.
Now, with no further adieu, here’s my book…
Evil is back, with a greater appetite for death.
They lurk forever in the shadows, smile at you in the morning, and haunt your dreams at night. You can’t hide, you can’t run, and there’s no escape. You can only scream when they come for you.
Killers and Demons II: They Return is a collection of thirteen tales, blending short stories and flash fiction, tales where the blood lingers on your tongue or spurts quickly from the swift cut.
Available on Amazon
Excerpt From Killers and Demons II: They Return
How Do You Take Your Tea?
“My condolences, my dear. I hear your husband has taken ill. It must be a trial to see such a fine gentleman unwell and abed. I hope it isn’t the grippe? My great aunt Matilda suffered with that malady only last year, and it fair did her in, poor thing. She hasn’t been the same since.”
Sunbeams sprinkled through the window and scattered prettily over the china as Mrs. Millicent Grey nodded over her tea, and feigned the expected air of sadness and commiseration for her guest, Mrs. Rowley. The third attendee—Millicent’s companion, Jane—demurely smiled and nodded. They gathered in Mrs. Grey’s sumptuous parlour for the visit, surrounded by all the creature comforts and a lavish spread of food and beverage.
Mrs. Grey fluttered her eyelids as if she held back tears. “His illness is quite vexing, but not the grippe, thank heavens. His doctor believes it’s severe dyspepsia and has dispensed a tincture.”
“Good to hear. It’s odd though, it coming on so quick. But it happens like that, don’t it? Hopefully he will be well soon. Illness can be such a trial. Such a trial.”
Millicent sighed to maintain the acceptable social demeanor. “Yes, it’s been an anxious and worrisome time.”
She sipped some tea to hide a slight smile. In fact, she felt relief in her spouse’s sickness, and barely gave him a stray thought other than to rejoice in his absence from her daily life. She married a most tedious man who could scarcely hold a thought in his head, let alone carry on an enjoyable conversation. Nevertheless, a woman must make the best of her situation and take advantage of her opportunities. Even if it meant tiresome husbands.
