Patient Name: Ashley Greathouse

 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.

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.

Cover Reveal for Mrs. Blackwood a Second Edition

A vampire is a being from folklore that subsists by feeding on the vital force of the living. In European folklore, vampires were undead beings that often visited loved ones.

The First Print

Mrs. Blackwood was a novel I wrote to be part of an anthology that sadly never happened. As a result, I decided to repurpose it and publish the novel as my first book. Mainly, I enjoyed the story and thought it to be unique.

MRS. BLACKWOOD COMES OUT ON
TUESDAY JULY 30TH, 2019 ON AMAZON!

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.

The Art of Letting Go

The visual arts are art forms such as painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, video, filmmaking, design, crafts, and architecture. Many artistic disciplines involve aspects of the visual arts as well as arts of other types. — Wikipedia

A Moment of Passing

A while back, Alyssa Monks shared moving insights in her TEDx Talk on art. She talked about how she tried another painting style set in nature, to rekindle her flame after her mother’s passing.

It gave me pause to reflect on creative writing as another act of art that penetrates the unknown. Specifically, it conveys the importance of allowing life to freely grace itself into the work. Letting nature’s truths on creation and death, on love and loss, reveal themselves in a more pure, unvarnished way.

Netflix - The Umbrella Academy

Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy

Greetings once again, Biters! For June, I thought I’d look at the Netflix hit series, The Umbrella Academy.

The Official Summary

On one day in 1989, 43 infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world.

In their teenage years, though, the family fractures and the team disbands. Fast forward to the present time, when the six surviving members of the clan reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing.

All Dark Places: A DSP Anthology — Compiled by J.E. Feldman

In a world where so many dark things go bump in the night, terror awaits around every corner as these authors take horror stories to the next level. — Google

A Book Review

If you want a good book to make the hair on your arms stand up, pay attention. I love a good horror read. I need something that is going to make me want to sleep with the lights on at night, with a baseball bat, just in case. This book did not disappoint!

There are five stories, five short reads that are going to give you the chills! I can’t give you the entire plot, but I will do my best to give this book, and the stories, some justice.
