Laurence Roch might be the worst vampire in Seattle. He adores peppermint mochas. He follows the Seahawks and Mariners religiously. He never wears black or sleeps in a coffin. However, coffin or not, a vampire needs a safe place to rest their head, or they will go insane.
After his mortal love died, Laurence found himself alone and without a home. With the booming tech industry, the city’s population keeps growing. The hunting is good, but the affordable real estate is hard to find.

About the Author
 photo EGuizzetti_authorphotoprogram_zpseimt90za.jpg
Much to her chagrin, Elizabeth Guizzetti discovered she was not a cyborg and growing up to be an otter would be impractical, so began writing stories at age twelve.
Three decades later, Guizzetti is an illustrator and author best known for her demon-poodle based comedy, Out for Souls & Cookies. She is also the creator of Faminelands and Lure and collaborated with authors on several projects including A is for Apex and The Prince of Artemis V. 
To explore a different aspect of her creativity, she writes science fiction and fantasy. Her debut novel, Other Systems, was a 2015 Finalist for the Canopus Award for excellence in Interstellar Fiction. Her short work has appeared in anthologies such as Wee Folk and The Wise and Beyond the Hedge. Between long projects, she works on a ten-part novella series, The Chronicles of the Martlet, following the life of an elfin assassin turned necromancer just for funsies. Immortal House is her seventh written book.
Guizzetti lives in Seattle with her husband and two dogs. When not writing or illustrating, she loves hiking and birdwatching.

My Review

5 stars

Laurence Roch is not your stereotypical vampire. He cuts his hair short, trims his nails, wears blue jeans, and loves peppermint mochas. He recently lost the love of his life, Rob and because he was not around when he died he also lost the house that the two of them made a home. Right now he is living in a basement apartment but he needs to get a secure house ASAP before his daymares of being drug into the light come true.

This is not the typical vampire story. Laurence is just trying to survive the best he can as we follow through flashbacks at the things that he has had to endure. But it’s watching him navigate a world that is continually changing. I love his lament over not buying stocks in Microsoft. But to learn that he makes his money hand painting book covers was completely unexpected.

This is a great short story that had me laughing and hoping Laurence could get over Rob, find someone else to love, and just generally survive in the new world.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

Red Harvest

Red Harvest
The Haunted Hollow Chronicles #1
by Patrick C. Greene
Genre: Horror
In the epic tradition of
Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Jonathan Maberry, a chilling new
masterwork of small-town evil, centuries-old traditions, and
newly-risen terror…
Red Harvest
Every year at harvest
time, something strange and wonderful happens in the sleepy farm
community of Ember Hollow. It comes alive. Truckloads
of pumpkins are sent off to be carved into lanterns. Children
scramble to create the creepiest, scariest costumes. Parents stock up
on candy and prepare for the town’s celebrated Pumpkin Parade. And
then there is Devil’s Night . . .
But this year, something
is different. Some of the citizens are experiencing dark, disturbing
visions. Others are beginning to wonder if they’re losing their
minds, or maybe their souls. One newly sober singer with the voice of
a fallen angel is tempted to make a deal that will seal his fate. And
one very odd boy is kept locked in a shed by his family—for reasons
too horrible to imagine . . .
Whatever is happening to
this town, they’re going to make it through this Halloween.
Even if it kills them . . .
Patrick C. Greene is
a lifelong horror fan who lives in the mountains of western North
Carolina. He is the author of the novels Progeny and The
Crimson Calling
, as well as numerous short stories featured in
collections and anthologies.
My Review

3 Stars

Ember Hollow is a small town that goes to the extreme when it comes to Halloween. But this year there is more than normal. This town harbors some people with some serious issues. But as good or bad as those issues are, this Halloween is going to turn them on their head in the most disturbing kind of way.

So this town is small and secluded and similar to any little town that doesn’t have computers or cell phone and the paranormal is true and strong. We have a musician that is trying to make his little band go big. His little brother loves following him around especially when it means he can impress the girl he has a crush on.

Then you have a seriously disturbed young man that has an unhealthy obsession with all things Halloween including the blood, guts, and gore. And where there is evil, you will also find a woman that has taken her vows to God overly seriously and has planned to end the pagan/satanic Halloween at all costs.

This story definitely has blood and gore in it but I felt that it wandered away from the story. There were some interesting story branches but they got all caught up and lost the thread that they were on. But I will say that everyone in this town shows how messed up people can be and that there really are no true heroes or villains. People tend to dance the line between the two.

Red Harvest is a decent read and will appeal to anyone that likes lots of blood and gore.
