Fall Back Means Vampires Are Coming Out Of The Coffin

Daylight saving time might go back to the first world war when electricity and power weren’t abundant but still something we practise in many countries to this day. But it means something entirely different for people like me.

This Is Not A History Class

When it’s time to ‘Fall Back,’ I get quite excited. It’s not because of the one more hour of sleep illusion, but because there will be less daylight. Society targets people like me when most agree that the sun is the main power for humankind as we function better and see better, including Vitamin D and E.

For as long as time, humankind progressed in daylight. It’s a general consensus that society made it ‘normal’ for people to work during the day and sleep at night. Not aware of places where daylight is less abundant all year round and is home to many people. Of course, those places are situated toward the poles but exist and are welcoming.

 I’m an extremely boring person, most of the time. On the rare occasions that I am doing something extraordinary, I can be found travelling around haunted Indiana, exploring the many paranormal hotspots the Hoosier state has to offer. 

I run and co-host a small team of two with fellow author Melissa Slate-Bindschadler, our investigations can be found on YouTube at Encounters With Darkness, or you can listen to our podcast on your favourite platform.

Exploring The Darker Side Of Human Nature In Fiction by Jane Jordan

What is dark romance? That was a question I was asked recently. Dark romance should tantalize the senses. It can be tragic or uplifting, but it has to explore the darker side of human nature. 

*** JANE JORDAN IS THE AUTHOR OF THIS ARTICLE DESPITE LISTED AS ARIELLE BELLE LYON ***

A Little History

For me, as a novelist, it means a captivating romantic story that is dangerous and seductive, a tale that will lure readers with gothic tension and richly textured prose. 

Historically, dark romance has been categorized as a literary subgenre of romanticism, an academic and artistic movement in Europe in the late eighteenth century. The defining characteristic of romanticism was an emphasis on emotion.

Patient Name: Mandi Konesni

I’m Mandi Konesni, a paranormal romance author. I’ve always been a “jack of all trades” crafty person. Soaps and toiletries? Okay! Jewelry? Hey, why not? Drawing? Eh, I’ll give it a shot, even if I could mangle a stick person. My first love, however, has always been writing.

I started reading young and haven’t stopped to this day. Eventually, you start imagining your own little worlds, which got me into roleplaying and gave me the courage to try my hand at writing for myself. It’s been a long journey filled with a lot of life lessons.

The Review of Craven Manor by Darcy Coates

I am a new Darcy Coates fan. This is the second book that she has read, and I loved it from start to finish. If Darcy Coates isn’t a name you are familiar with, let me tell you a bit about her writing.  

 SPOILER ALERT! CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED!

 The Suspense And The Mystery

Author Darcy Coates writes in the genre of horror suspense. Her books contain mystery, suspense, and that eerie feeling that horror fans love so much. Her characters are relatable, and she transports the reader into the story. At least that’s what happens to me when I read her stories.

Animorph #2 The Visitor by Katherine Applegate Review

One of the things that I love about this series is that you never have a book come from the same point of view in a row.

Rachel’s The Narrator

One of the things that I love about this series is that you never have a book come from the same point of view in a row.

K.A. Applegate takes all of her characters into play and while the first book was from Jake’s point of view, this one is from Rachel’s. She begins out with the same intro we will continue to see about how no last names, no personal information will be given. They are in enough danger from the Yeerks as it is.

The Faces of Abaddon The Demon Angel

Recently I did some research about the demon called Beelzebub. Now, to continue on that path, I decided to turn to Abaddon. Both commonly confused as Satan.

Quite A Mixed Origin

The faces of Abaddon the demon angel because no one knows what he truly is. Abaddon is one name we can see on “The Devil” ‘s coin in the Netflix series, Lucifer.

However, it is wrong to refer to the king of Hell, Satan, as Abaddon or Beelzebub, for that matter. Abaddon is an angel himself and a demon of in his own rights.

The Exorcist’s Apprentice Town of Pottersfield by L.A. Maciel

At Gothic Bite Magazine we love to review novels from indie authors. L.A. Maciel is one of our writers and with her novelette of paranormal here’s what Kendra Hale had to say!

You Dead?

I love a good prequel don’t you? It always feels like you are seeing the inner sanctum and waiting for the alarms to go off because you are in a restricted area and the $*$* could hit the fan any minute if you are not careful.

That and you get this different view of a character or group because you get to see what in their lives causes them to behave the way they do or why they make the choices that they make.

Patient Name: Karolyne Cronin

I’m from St. Louis, Missouri, but I have lived and traveled most of the United States. I went to London last year and was inspired to spin more tales. It was a trip of a lifetime. I would love to go there again. 

I fell in love with horror and gothic tales when I was five and saw Vincent Price recite The Raven. At nine, I read Stephen King’s Pet Sematary, confirming to my mom that I was just as weird as the rest of the family. My love of this genre doesn’t come from the joy of being scared. It comes exploring the dark nature of the world.
