Horror fans – Looking for a creepy tale to read this Halloween?

Are you one of those readers who love an eerily haunting story, one that you’re terrified to keep reading and yet you can’t put it down?  With Halloween at our doorstep, it’s a great time for one of those novels.  For those who love the horror genre, anytime is a good time.  In my horror/thriller, Vengeance of the Wolf

Vengeance of the Wolf by Solitaire Parke

you are drawn into the world of dreams. It’s the story of a shocking assassin who works through dreams using a technique that seems physically impossible, to end the lives of those deemed responsible for an untimely death.  Detectives are completely baffled, and just as they appear to get closer to determining the person’s identity, they are completely thrown off and their efforts seem to take them nowhere.  Extremely shaken at the horrific scenes to which they are led, the question remains – why is this happening and where is it leading?  Only the assassin has the answers to their questions – answers that may be too unsettling to be revealed.

If you like a good scare – check it out at my website, where you can read the first chapter!  You’ll find it is available multiple places in all formats.

No, I’m not actually this macabre…

Vengeance of the Wolf by Solitaire Parke

I’ve been asked where the inspiration for “Vengeance of the Wolf” came from…so here goes.  When I was a kid my mother died on the operating table for four minutes. When they managed to bring her back, she spun a tale of the afterlife and out of body, that had it not come from my mother, I wouldn’t have believed.  Many years and a boatload of research spawned the books, “Beyond the Astral Planes” and “Threshold of Perception.” While writing “Threshold,” an idea struck me with the strength of an eighteen wheeler. What if you could learn these things – what if the person who learned it was evil, or just riddled with a need for vengeance? Tada! Dorian was born from the recesses of my mind.  (Remember its Dorian who’s macabre, not me)  I chose something that almost everyone, at the very least, has an opinion about. Yep, you guessed it!…politicians. Needless to say, after they killed Dorian’s wolf, Dorian goes about attempting to place justice where open evil and dishonesty seems to abound. Remember, he’s learned how to do things and affect people by using the out of body abilities and manipulating their dreams. Theoretically, a man like Dorian couldn’t be stopped, and it’s up to the protagonists to figure out how to do the impossible. Imagine Dexter from the television series merging with the Zodiac killer, and then add a touch of immortality and you have Dorian Messaurick; a serial killer to pale all of his predecessors. Now imagine him affecting his habits all over the world…oh, and in a very short amount of time.

Once I completed “Vengeance,” it occurred to me that the story need not stop there…Introducing book two – “A Distant Howling.” Coming soon to a home near you!  And as any other self-published author out there knows, it starts off as a great idea and ends up as a herculean effort, not only on the part of the author but all of those who support him/her, as the case may be.  Now that book two, “A Distant Howling” is closing down toward being completed, it has occurred to me that this damn story is still not finished! It will require a book three! (Title yet to be announced)  As you may have guessed, I’m like everyone else, and tend to believe that a good story needs total closure. You gotta dot the I’s and cross the T’s.  As twisted as Dorian is, he still deserves to have his story told.

On a more serious note, I really hope you enjoy the story; and any and all help or ideas are appreciated!  Be sure to read it late at night when you’re all alone.  All the world is but a stage, and we are just players…yada yada yada! Enjoy!
