Or, An Excerpt From My Upcoming New Romance Spell of Vanishing

Daniela Ferraro hopped out of the other vehicle before it had come to a full stop and tore open Talia’s passenger door. She was casting so fast, one moment she was a scared, dark-haired woman and the next she was covered in frost.

“Haunted” House For Sale — Complete With Blood on the Walls!

Written by Adriana Velez in August 2014

So, you’re looking for a house in the Detroit area because you hear they’re ridiculously cheap. And this one catches your eye. It’s probably a fixer-upper, but it’s a 2,084-square-foot, 4-bedroom brick colonial — for only $19,500! You HAVE to take a look, right? This is so worth considering. There’s just one little thing. According to the listing, it was “previously a Halloween haunted house.”

No big deal, right? Yeah … well, maybe you should see some photos first. Let’s just say, the seller is “highly motivated” to sell but couldn’t be bothered to stage the house.

Maybe you should sit down.

So, is it me? Or are the words “YOU WILL DIE” scrawled on the wall in blood along with bloody handprints? I mean, haha, obviously it’s just red paint. I know that! But yeesh. That’s creepy. They must have just forgotten to repaint this room. I can understand that. They were probably in a hurry to list this house. Let’s see some of the other rooms.

Hmm, well, I guess you’d have some plaster work to clean up here. And the bars on the window aren’t very warm. Ceiling needs to be redone. And — ew, what’s that on the door to the right? Bloody handprints? Bloody hell! Honestly, couldn’t they have painted over that before taking this photo? I’m afraid to see the other rooms.

ZOMG!!! First of all, this room looks like a crime scene. Secondly, is it a kitchen or a bathroom? That’s almost as scary as the fake blood. And what’s up with the random staircase? Where does it lead, and what’s inside the doorway? Never mind, don’t tell me. Whatever it is, I don’t want to see it.

Well then. Good luck selling this house! I think spending a couple hundred and an afternoon to do a little emergency repainting could have made the difference between selling at $19,000 and not selling at all. But then, I’m one of those crazy people who doesn’t like seeing the words YOU WILL DIE on the walls of my future home, you know? But maybe this listing will draw a more adventurous sort who’s not so picky.

Stories and storytelling mean everything to me.

As a young adult my head was buzzing with new worlds, new characters, and new conflicts to explore. The stories poured out of me. Romances, thrillers, YA’s, paranormals, fantasies, horror. I couldn’t write them down fast enough.

Instead of doing chores, I wrote. Instead of hanging out with friends, I wrote. I’m a abashed to admit I even stayed home from high school to write.

That passion for creating worlds has stuck with me. I truly believe that writing is an essential part of me. A part I hold very dear.

Now, as an adult, I have the unbelievably exciting privilege of writing for an audience.

Thank you for sharing this exciting new journey with me.

Stuart Broad and Ben Stokes unable to sleep in ‘haunted’ London hotel

Written by Phil Archbold

England’s cricketers are having trouble sleeping at night after becoming convinced that their five-star central London hotel is haunted.

According to the Daily Mail, a number of players have requested to switch rooms, while some wives and girlfriends have refused to stay at the Langham Hotel during London Test matches this summer after complaints of paranormal activity.

“During the Sri Lanka Test I had to move rooms,” Stuart Broad is quoted as saying.

“It was so hot in the room I just couldn’t sleep. All of a sudden the taps in the bathroom came on for no reason. I turned the lights on and the taps turned themselves off. Then when I turned the lights off again the taps came on. It was very weird.

“It really freaked me out. I ended up asking to move rooms. Ben Stokes has had some problems sleeping as well. He’s on the third floor, which is where a lot of the issues are. I’m telling you, something weird is going on.”

Or, An Excerpt From My Upcoming Paranormal Romance Spell of Vanishing

“Anyway,” Cole said, “I was trying to memorize a couple of helpful spells.”

Helpful was misleading, though. “Defensive or offensive?” Talia asked because no black magic was helpful.

“A little bit of both, I guess,” he admitted. “Like this one.” He sat cross-legged and flipped pages. “It summons a swarm of stinging insects.”

“Holy crap,” she exclaimed. The more he taught her about necromancy, the less she knew.

I'm not ashamed to say I cried at the end of this book, or that I read it in a single day because I couldn't stop.

The story started out a page tuner I could not put down, but by the middle I was skimming to the end just to see how it all wrapped up. I think the James' are wonderful storytellers, but this particular story didn't do it for me. I'd lov...
