Welcome to todays blog post.
Fear is as old as life itself..
Both of the men hear wolves howling from far off, and Dracula is the first to speak.
'The children of the night,' he says, 'what music they make.'
We all love a good Horror story don't we whether it is Bram Stokers Dracula or Mary Shelly's Frankenstein we just can't get enough of them.
So today I thought I would bring you a new release. Hauntings An Anthology.
As you can see by the cover this is a collection of short stories by ten historical fiction authors, who came together via the magic of the internet to create this wonderful book.
Dedicated to the memory of Sharon Penman (another fantastic historical fiction writer) the book spans 2,000 years of history.
Featuring stories from S.J.A Turney, D.Apple, Judith Arnopp, K.S.Barton, Lynn Bryant, Stephanie Churchill, Kate Jewell, Paula Lofting, Samantha Wilcoxson and Jennifer C. Wilson. With a forward by Sharon Bennett Connolly.
Hauntings would be a great addition to any bookcase and ideal for reading as Halloween approaches.
So what are the stories about?
Well you need to read the book to find out, but here are just a few of the tales that are captured within its pages.
There is a tormented Roman General.
A Norse woman who has to confront her terrifying destiny.
A Saxon brother searches for his twin's murderer.
A nurse tries to solve the mysteries of an asylum.
A lost slave girl is the soul survivor of a mass slaughter.
And Henry the VIII and Anne Boleyn wander through a haunted garden.
This book is not for the faint hearted, but if you like a good ghost story or a terrifying tale then why not give it a read.
These authors have a history of excellent storytelling and this book is no exception. If you want to know about other books by these authors then check out the links below for their websites and blogs etc.
