Mother

“In Mother by Tamara Thorne & Alistair Cross, the adage that “you can’t go home again” becomes the horrifying truth. Jason and Claire Holbrook find themselves in an untenable position. She’s pregnant, he’s a newly disabled pilot with no job. Moving in with the mother Claire ran away from ten years earlier was the last thing she wanted to do, but it was the only thing they could do. The only problem, the Femme Fatale from Hell, just also happens to be the Mother from Hell …

“A psychological thriller that will have you engrossed, ignoring the clock, and so profoundly disturbed you won’t close the book until early the next day. Just be prepared for sleep to evade as you contemplate the possible existence of such monsters.

“Mother is a reimagined “Psycho” and an even more alarming glimpse into the world of psychopaths. Well done Thorne and Cross, even King and Hitchcock would doff their hats!”

MOTHER is available now at AMAZON.

Alistair’s novel, The Crimson Corset, is officially in production for audiobook! After some revisions it will go on to the next step and should be done and available soon. Updates to come!

Pictured below is actor Allen Andrews, who not only narrated the book but did an awesome job with all the folks in Crimson Cove – the fanged and unfanged alike (Alistair even thinks he looks a little like Cade Colter – but he says that about a lot of people.) Allen is a theatrically trained actor and voice professional whose many roles have included Gaston (of Beauty and the Beast notoriety) to Clyde Barrow (of that endlessly fascinating disastrous duo, Bonnie and Clyde.)

There’s an island up in Gold Country at the northern end of Snapdragon Lake. It’s named Manchester for the family that owns it, but the locals call it Spite Island. There’s a single lonely mansion on that island and a group of authors have been invited to write about its ghosts and its mysteries. The real mystery is, who will still be breathing at the end of this luxurious but deadly retreat?

Sometimes, it’s not what goes right in the writing process, it’s what goes horribly wrong. Host and Gothic Horror novelist Jennifer Anne Gordon (with help from co-hosts author, Allison Martine and author Trisha Ridinger Mckee) chat with some of the best, and most successful authors of the day, not about what their greatest successes are, but about all the things that may have gone wrong during their first drafts, writing experiments, books read, social media rants and more. This is Vox Vomitus (word vomit).

The Black Wasp is the third book in Alistair’s Vampires of Crimson Cove series – and it’s coming this winter! Here is the cover and teaser. Get the first two books in the series: (#1 – The Crimson Corset and #2 – The Silver Dagger.)

Something is coming.
Cade Colter is dealing with a group of fanatical vampire killers even as he grieves the death of his girlfriend at the fangs of his own brother. His life is in turmoil and just when it seems things couldn’t get worse a new evil comes to town.
The Woman in Black is back.
Now, something else roams the streets of Crimson Cove – something far deadlier than any vampire. She comes with the fog, she comes with the night, and she’s spreading a lethal poison that slowly rots her victims from the inside out … and she’s looking for Cade.
Sooner or later, you’ll see her, too.
First comes the deadly low hum of a thousand black wasps…
Then a feeling of dread so deep and cold that you dare not breathe…
A figure, a woman dressed in old-fashioned widow’s weeds, appears before you …
Don’t Scream.
She wants to know your terror. She wants to taste your pain.
