Ghost Dancer, Demon in the Basement, & Mayhem Returns!

Before I start my blog post, I have to share an awesome find. A friend of mine found the Starship Enterprise re-created using the stones on a beach near to where I live. Isn't it fabulous?

Now on with my post. The super-talented Christine Rains has just published the first book in her The Paramours series, Ghost Dancer. All three of the books promise to be breatheless erotic reads for those who don't want a scary ghost story.


The Paramours - ghost hunting with a kiss.

When Nina Azure’s talent as a ghost dancer doesn’t persuade a handsome phantom to talk, she entices him with sizzling sexual energy. Ben Moore’s spirit is tied to this world with guilt, but he breaks his self-imposed silence for the beautiful Nina. Lust makes him fully physical and she loses herself to desire. She must help him carry on to the afterlife, but her attraction to him is immensely powerful. She must push aside her own feelings and let him go—and perhaps find romance among the living.

The insanely talented River Fairchild has given us another collection of stories to send you hiding under the covers.


Thirty-two stories, including a novelette by the same title, to keep you awake at night.

A time-traveling Chevy, an ancient church of evil, a house possessed by black magic. Stories to fill you with dread, draw you into places you'd rather not go, smack you in the face with ironic possibilities.

Meet the monsters of myth, the creatures that lurk under your bed, the phantoms you thought didn't exist. Travel to the real Atlantis, strap in for the Bermuda Triangle. Terror lurks in the ocean, while an asteroid hides a secret.

Leave a nightlight on before you go to sleep. Something's coming for you.

  3. Congratulations to River and Christine!
    And that must've taken a lot of time to create the Enterprise in pebbles.

    1. Thanks, River. I'm not sure I'd have the patience for creating a pebble image like the Enterprise. Looks stunning, though.

  9. Nice sand picture, someone knows their way around the Enterprise. Opposites in slightly more than just friendly ghosts and not so friendly deamons.

    1. Thanks, Snafu. I think whoever created the Enterprise must be both a fan and an artist.
