FROM GOTHIC ROMANCE TO DARK HORROR!


I write two kinds of horror: dark horror that holds no bars. It’s dark and frightening. Case in point is Circus of Horrors. That is the darkest, most twisted novel I have written and that’s saying a lot!
Carole Gill’s House of Horrors is a collection of horror storts that were published in anthologies. Please scroll down to see the titles of those anthologies.

My latest novel which has been delayed because of the untimely death of my husband is nearly ready for the editor. Talk about dark? That novel is about The Blood Countess Erzsebat Bathory who didn’t use bath salts but virgin blood instead. Hammer did a great film about her with Ingrid Pitt as Countess Dracula. Bathory was, sadly all too real. I’ll be doing special posts leading up to the publication by Creativia.

Every one of my books is published by them I am happy to say.

I also write dark Gothic Romance and Paranormal Romance with elements of horror in them. I love history and unlike my straight dark horror, This fiction is historically based.


All four novels in the series are comprised in The Blackstone Vampires Omnibus. Complete series for $4.99.

I’m proud of this series and here’s why:

FYI:
In 2000 I was selected by Northwest Playwrights of England for further development. Short stories and novels were what I preferred to write. However, it certainly taught me how to write dialogue which I love doing!
I am just getting back to writing now and have already begun notes on a ninth book. This one isn’t about vampires. I’m interested to see how it goes!
