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?

Ever sat in a crowded place, bored or distracted, until someone walks by with something that just draws your attention – whether you meant it to or not? Think of that reaction as a reader walks by with the eye-catching artwork of James R. Powell featuring the title “Phobophobia”. Moreover, the cover is aptly made to draw a new reader into tales of fear.

From Goodreads:
There is nothing to fear but fear itself…Twenty six original tales of horror by established masters of terror and talented new voices lie within this Lexicon of Fear.Beware the dark power of words in BIBLIOPHOBIA…a carnival double act made in Hell can be found in the clown cemetery in COULROPHOBIA…an artist loses his power to create ice sculptures because of his fear of cold in FRIGOPHOBIA, but that is the least of his problems as his therapist suffers the same phobia…The fear of open spaces manifests itself in KENOPHOBIA, a tale of the ultimate emptiness – the Great Void that awaits us all…the fear of beautiful women is fully justified in VENUSTROPHOBIA, a tale of futile defence against the Succubus……but beware: the cure may be worse…Denying yourself a place in Heaven is one way to avoid JESUSPHOBIA, but the only alternative means Hell to pay…a playwright fights his fear of the colour yellow by creating an unusual addition to his Dramatis Personae in XANTHOPHOBIA…a Witchfinder’s fear of open water will only be relieved by imbibing one of two deathly fluids in AQUAPHOBIA…and a widower follows the age-old advice of turning to face your fear in QIQIRN, only to uncover the true nature of an Inuit dog spirit that carries the essence of cold terror from its ancient homeland into the realm of human grief…Open the pages. It is time to learn your A to Dread..

While some stories are better than others, there is a little bit of each of them in the artwork presented by James R. Powell. Kudos to him for doing such a delightful job! Look for a new rendition from him in a September 1, 2012 novella release to be known as “Dead Education’s Army Book One: Flesh Code” by Alan Dale.

Horror writer Jimmy Gillentine enjoys thrilling his readers. Bringing a twist to the vampire legend in ‘Of Blood And The Moon’, he continues to see what happens at the night hot spots when you sprinkle in some horrific visitors.

A Night At Death’s Door:
Death’s Door is the club where all the vampires and hangers-on . . . er, hang out. To gain entrance, you have to be picked. Janet and Alice get picked, Curt arrives with a bowie knife, someone brings a crossbow, and the evening grows from there. Come see who’s still standing after a night at Death’s Door.

Of Blood and the Moon:
Love is something that is not bound by normal parameters. Anyone who has ever been in love will acknowledge that it is something that is beyond human control. Who we are and who we love are subject to no rules, and we see the effects that it can have in “Of Blood and the Moon.”

When Angela Johnson started working at the bar, Aces High, the last thing she expected is to meet someone like Andrew Bane. Andrew is tall, strong, mysterious and handsome, so she couldn’t help falling in love with him. But when Andrew becomes the target of a local drug ring leader’s hatred, it starts an unstoppable chain of events. The end result: Angela discovers who and what Andrew really is. Can her love survive the horrible truth of Andrew’s secret?

About the author:
Jimmy D. Gillentine grew up with a fondness for horror, science fiction and fantasy flavored with the southern tang of his native Memphis. His novella, “Of Blood and the Moon,” was first published in 2009 and was the first runner-up for the Darrell Award. His most recent publications include a short story titled “Fifteen-Minute Break” in the annual anthology Cover of Darkness and a new novella titled “A Night at Death’s Door,” both from Sam’s Dot Publishing.

He is the co-founder and president of the International Brotherhood of Beards and Leather, an association of writers, artists, musicians and confolk. He is also a member of the Literary Underworld and Imagicopter, both author cooperatives. If you want to get on his good side, bring him a bag of popcorn at the Literary Underworld booth; he’s not known as the Popcorn Monster for nothing!
