Author Selah Janel has presented a delightful tale IN THE RED.

From No Boundaries Press:
What kind of a rock star lives in a small town in the middle of nowhere and plays at weddings and funerals? Then Jack Scratch comes into his life, ready to represent him and launch him to stardom. Jack can give him everything: a new band, a new name, a new life, a new look, and new boots…although they aren’t exactly new. They once belonged to The One, a rocker so legendary and so mysterious that it’s urban legend that he used black magic to gain success. But what does Jeremiah care about urban legend? And it’s probably just coincidence that the shoes make him dance better than anyone, even if it doesn’t always feel like he’s controlling his movements. It’s no big deal that he plunges into a world of excess and decadence as soon as he puts the shoes on his feet, right?

But what happens when they refuse to come off?

About Sam Flegal:
Sam Flegal has been fascinated by the strange and the macabre from a very young age. Fortunately for his budding morbid creativity, he was raised in a household that encouraged his interest in all things weird—Sam’s father was a magician and his mother a ventriloquist and clown.

As an illustrator for both book covers and games, Sam specializes in painting strange scenes of epic fantasy and graphic horror. He describes his art as “stylized realism,” portraying fantastical things in a comic book- like graphic manner, but with an eye towards real life. Sam’s preferred medium is oil paint.

Sam also uses his strange imagination to help others realize their dreams of undeath through the power of Zombie Portraits. Like a caricature from a dark carnival, Sam takes the living and brings out their inner dead.

If you are interested in having a Zombie Portrait done of you or a loved one, or if you are interested in hiring Sam Flegal as an illustrator or having him as a guest at your convention, contact him at (care of his website)

L.R. Barrett-Durham self-published her first epic fantasy novel, Never Trust a Sorcerer, in September of 2011. She has published five books in her first year as an indie author.  While writing the second book to The Trust Series, Always Trust Your Honor, she met her coauthor E. G. Glover and began working on their paranormal romance series, The Fear Series. Book One, Fear the Beast Within, was finished in thirty-seven days and was published one day apart from Always Trust Your Honor. Book Two, Fear the Thirst Within, was published in May 2012.  Her newest novel, Book Three of The Trust Series, Forever Trust Your Aim, is fresh off the presses, being published September 4, 2012, just thirteen days shy of the one year mark.

A native of North Alabama, L R is not only an author, but also a freelance artist while she isn’t at her day job, being a Network Technician for one of the largest Credit Unions in Alabama.

E.G. Glover is new to the novel-writing scene with Fear the Beast Within, which was written and published with L R Barrett-Durham in January 2012. He flirted with idea of writing in high school by authoring various poems and short stories, but it wasn’t until recently that his dream of writing a novel became a reality.

Four short months later, he and L. R. Barrett-Durham published Book Two of The Fear Series entitled, Fear the Thirst Within. He is currently working on Fear the Emptiness Within, Book Three of The Fear Series, with Barrett-Durham.

This Alabama native’s hopes with this series are to prove that a romantic story can be told with a male’s point of view entwined, and still hold its romanticisms. Check their website at or chat with them on Facebook at

Fans of the IN HELL series have said that the latest release, ROGUES IN HELL, is delightful. Yet what is the premise behind it? Quite simply, the reader follows historical figures surmised to have been sentenced to Hell for their heinous crimes. The stories either follow the faction wars that are happening in Hell, people trying to escape Hell, or other happenings going on. The themes for each anthology is in the title – LAWYERS IN HELL and ROGUES IN HELL being self descriptive.

So what did H David Blalock write about?

As mentioned, there are different factions in Hell who often war between themselves, not to mention those inside the factions plotting to get out. H David Blalock chose to explore the idea of the two Egyptian magicians who faced off with Moses and their scheme to escape hell – by leaving the Egyptian Hell and breaking into the Chinese Hell to get a Key from the Demon Guard there and using it to get out. Assigned to stop them is a Chinese General, but can he succeed?

Sound interesting? If that is not to your liking, there are other stories that are mentioned in several favorable reviews that might be more your taste.
