Authors Of Interest...And A Giveaway!!!

A modern Gothic thriller

After parapsychologist Anna Galloway is diagnosed with terminal cancer, she has a recurring dream in which she sees her own ghost. The setting of her dream is the historic Korban Manor, and she's compelled to face the secrets of her soul.

Sculptor Mason Jackson has come to the manor to make a final, all-or-nothing attempt at success before giving up his dreams. When he becomes obsessed with carving Ephram Korban's form out of wood, even Anna can't divert his bizarre passion.

The manor itself has secrets, with fires that blaze constantly in the hearths, portraits of Korban in every room, and deceptive mirrors on the walls. With an October blue moon looming, both the living and the dead learn the true power of their dreams.

He appreciates bloggers!!!
Yeah, Scott.
That is nice to know.

Andrew Kaufman is another scary writer.
I could not put his first book down.
I say that a lot but it sort of describes the way I read.
I have this book on my Kindle, too.
I am of the belief that it is even scarier than his first book.
It's amazing because he appears to be such a normal person.
He has a dog.
He is my FaceBook friend.
He responds to all my emails.
He is just so nice.
And yet...
he scares me to death.
Here is a summary of his book...from Amazon.

From Andrew E. Kaufman, author of the #1 bestseller, While the Savage Sleeps...SHE ONLY STEPPED OUTSIDE FOR A MINUTE...
But a minute was all it took to turn Jean Kingsley's world upside down--a minute she'd regret for the rest of her life. 


Because when she returned, she found an open bedroom window and her three-year-old son, Nathan, gone. The boy would never be seen again. 

A tip leads detectives to the killer, a repeat sex offender, and inside his apartment, a gruesome discovery. A slam-dunk trial sends him off to death row, then several years later, to the electric chair. 

Now, more than thirty years later, Patrick Bannister unwittingly stumbles across evidence among his dead mother's belongings. It paints his mother as the killer and her brother, a wealthy and powerful senator, as the one pulling the strings.


There's a hole in the case a mile wide, and Patrick is determined to close it. But what he doesn't know is that the closer he moves toward the truth, the more he's putting his life on the line, that he’s become the hunted. Someone's hiding a dark secret and will stop at nothing to keep it that way.
The clock is ticking, the walls are closing, and the stakes are getting higher as he races to find a killer--one who's hot on his trail. One who's out for his blood.
Clicking on Kindle will take you to each book.
