Author’s First Novel to Debut at Killercon

Author and New England Horror Writer member L.L. Soares first novel, Life Rage, will debut at Killercon in Las Vegas, happening from September 20 through 23. The novel is being published by Nightscape Press.

From the publisher’s website, “Sam Wayne is a psychologist who specializes in anger management. He’s very good at his job. Almost too good. In fact, he considers himself something of a miracle worker. A mad man is on the loose, ripping people apart with his bare hands. The police have no clues. Those who see him and survive never seem to make out his face. All except for one … Colleen has led a wasted life, bringing home a new man to her bed every night. Until that night. Witnessing her friend torn to pieces right before her eyes, she sees the murderer’s face clearly. She manages to escape, traumatized by what she’s seen, and keeps running until she falls into the arms of Jeremy Rust. An ex Hollywood playboy, Jeremy now hides out in a secluded beach house with his mysterious roommate, Viv. Viv has an insatiable hunger. Like Colleen, Viv never stays long with one partner. Because those who sleep with Viv never manage to live very long, once she finds the key to their soul. The number of murders keeps growing, until an eruption of rage begins to spread like an epidemic. Everywhere, crowds of people mindlessly rip each other apart. An event that will tie all these characters together in a final showdown of supernatural forces. But not everyone will survive the explosive fury of Life Rage!”

Life Rage will be available in trade paperback, and as an e-book for Nook and Kindle.

Here is the novella’s description, “In the distant future, when man has learned to live in balance with the forces of the universe. When greed and corruption are but a memory and cooperation has defeated competition. A small boy goes missing and is presumed to have perished at the hands of an ancient evil. Unconvinced of this, the boy’s older brother sets out to find him and discovers the machinations of an unearthly horror”

‘The Apocalypse’ Happened June 1

Author Nick Cato’s novella, The Apocalypse of Peter, was released June 1 by Damnation Books. It was edited by Tim  Marquitz and the cover art was done by Dawné  Dominique.

The book’s synopsis: “It’s the end of the world as you newer knew it. Seminary student Peter Barnes and his senior friend, Harvey Connor didn’t expect the last days to include neon meteor showers, unexplainable mutated creatures, or that they’d be housing an all-girl rock band.  Thinking they must be the last people on Earth, Peter’s understanding of all he had been taught becomes rapidly overthrown…especially when a young, ghost-like figure calls him and an offbeat army on a mission to go up against a most unusual foe.  Peter’s faith is thrown through the ringer as he gets closer to discovering just what it is that has turned the planet into a festering eye-sore of theological chaos.

Cato’s novella is available on e-book for $4.50 and in paperback for $12.89 on Amazon.
