Fall 2020 Update

emz unplugged

Biters, Sweet Dreamers, Readers, and Listeners,

The last time I updated you was quite a bit ago. Before the world really knew what the last 7 months would be like. Before masks came into style and we got used to spending Friday nights in, curled up with our favorite books or streaming service instead of going to dinner or a movie. I’m sorry to be away so long without an update, but I’m sure you have been just as caught up in this mess as I have been. The new normal is not very pleasant, but we persevere… hoping one day we’ll be able to go out and converse and share times with our extended families and friends like old times.

Well, if you’re still wondering what to read or need some new, fresh titles, I’ve got plenty! You can also follow my more active feeds at my main blog

Press Release: Fang Me Three Times by R.L. Merrill

My friend R.L. Merrill has a new book out!
New Paranormal Romance Release
Fang Me Three Times: Magic and Mayhem Universe
The Miscreants #1 By R.L. Merrill 

Three kisses will break the curse, but what if your Prince Charming can’t hold back the fang?

Cursed witch Wilma Wetter is proud to represent her magical Germanic ancestors as a weather forecaster, even if it means taking a job in a town called Assjacket, West Virginia. While tracking the weather before a historic lunar eclipse, she and her trusty camerawoman Jules come across three ridiculously attractive rock stars wandering in the woods.

Gustavo “Gus Valens” Valenzuela comes from a rock ‘n’ roll family and has been living the dream since joining his cousins in forming The Miscreants, but a hazy meeting with insistent groupies leaves The Miscreants forever changed. And hungry.

Gus holds the key to awakening Wilma’s latent powers, held in check by an ancient family curse. Can he help her break it without changing her life forever? And would change necessarily be a bad thing?

Not So Dumb Supper

by Emerian Rich

When people hear the term Dumb Supper they laugh, but it’s been a part
of my family fall tradition for many years. The term Dumb Supper doesn’t refer to a stupid meal, but rather an evening meal in which you honor those who have passed on.

In some cultures, it’s used to the call spirits of the dead to eat with you, but since my family has members of different faiths—those who believe in spirits and those who think it’s a load of malarkey—we use it as a way to remember those who have died in our family.

Elitists would say there is a certain way to hold a Dumb Supper. Some believe it must be conducted entirely in silence, involve a detailed ceremony, or the table must be set with only black decor… Continue reading in SEARCH Magazine’s Fall 2020 issue.

Book Anniversary : Dusk’s Warriors by Emerian Rich

HorrorAddicts.net

Originally posted – 10/3/2017

HorrorAddicts.net Press is happy to announce the new vampire publication, Dusk’s Warriors by Emerian Rich

Heaven has opened up and welcomed the vampires of Night’s Knights into a new reality. As they struggle to find their place in their new world, trouble brews on Earth.

Demon servant, Ridge, is causing havoc by gathering up all the souls on Earth that have been touched by immortality. When he injures one of the Night’s Knights crew, he launches a war between the vampires of Heaven, the Big Bad in Hell, and a mortal street gang of vigilante misfits.

Will Julien, Markham, and Reidar be able to defeat the evil that’s returned, or will they once again need Jespa’s help?

Praise for Dusk’s Warriors:

“All hail, the queen of Night’s Knights has returned! Emerian Rich’s unique take on vampires delights my black little heart.” ~Dan Shaurette, Lilith’s Love
