The Official Pre-Christmas Writer’s Promotion Part 8

 

The Official pre-Christmas Writer’s Promotion brings you two suggestions today. So if you are looking for a good book or two this holiday season? Check out Rock ‘N’ Roll by L.L. Soares, the Bram Stoker-winning author of Life Rage or In the Spooklight, a collection of 115 horror movie columns by Stoker Award-nominated author and film critic Michael Arruda

In Rock ‘N’ Roll, Lash possesses a unique gift that allows him to enhance the sexual pleasure of anyone around him to mind-blowing levels, by entering a trance-like state. This makes him a highly sought after “entertainer” for the local rich and hedonistic, who pay Lash handsomely to attend sex parties and personal one-on-one trysts. But this power begins taking a toll on Lash’s life and psyche. He struggles to maintain his current relationship while dodging an ex-wife who is addicted to his abilities. When Lash finds himself in the presence of death, his world begins to crumble as a new facet of his power is revealed … one with horrible and gruesome consequences.

Rock ‘N’ Roll is like an off-the-wall late night supernatural erotic thriller as directed by David Cronenberg. Soares blends several genres to deliver an original and quite difficult to put down tale (I read it in two sittings). There’s wall-to-wall sex, but unlike a typical exploitation story it’s key to the constantly unfolding plot. This is a real wild ride that’s highly recommended to those looking for something truly different.” – Horror Fiction Review

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.
