Convinced they are the victims of a sick, practical joke, Heidi and her three friends are resigned to spending the night at The Scarry Inn, even though the atmosphere is anything but welcoming.

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

No one thought it would return because the only way to defeat it forever lay hidden in Sarah Fear’s grave.

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.

Two years before the writing of Mrs. Blackwood, I met Tara M. Clapper, an editor among a few I contacted and her love for the paranormal attracted me. Henceforth, Tara became my editor and worked with me on a few writing projects.
