Interviews, Books, and Horror. Oh my…

It’s been a busy month! On the 2nd, we released our first collaborative novel, THE CLIFFHOUSE HAUNTING, then a few days later, DEAD GIRLS, the 6th installment of our serialized Gothic novel, THE GHOSTS OF RAVENCREST, came out. Both are available on Amazon, as well as the previous RAVENCREST installments, DARKER SHADOWS (#1-3), CHRISTMAS SPIRITS (#4), and NIGHT MOVES (#5).

Meanwhile, we’ve been doing a lot of promotional work for Cliffhouse’s release. Our latest interview about this novel is at Beauty in Ruins, which came out this morning, and earlier this week, we did a live radio interview at Conversations LIVE! with host, Cyrus Webb.

In the interim, our own radio show, Haunted Nights LIVE! has been going strong. We started booking for summer of 2015 and have acquired such guests as Christopher Moore, Charlaine Harris, F. Paul Wilson, Jonathan Maberry, and Dianna Love, to name a few. Last week, we had Richard Christian Matheson, and tonight, at 9 pm EDT, we have the legendary Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. Be there if you dare. Keep an eye out next week for Kealan Patrick Burke, and our first guest in May is one of the best thriller writers around, Kevin O’Brien. Visit my website for the full guest list as well as previous podcasts which are available to listen to. You can also find us on iTunes.

Alongside all of this, my solo novel, THE CRIMSON CORSET, is still in progress and is expected to be released later this summer. Also when the weather warms, keep an eye out for our next collaboration, GRANDMA’S RACK, which is in production now. And near the end of next month, the 7th installment in THE GHOSTS OF RAVENCREST series will be available as well.

The Ghosts of Ravencrest #6: Dead Girls

Restless Spirits

The spirits of Ravencrest are restless and governess Belinda Moorland finds herself in a maze of ever-growing mystery and danger as she uncovers the shocking secrets of her new home. With the help of butler Grant Phister, she realizes the three blood-drenched nuns who patrol the east wing, the little girl in red, and the handsome night visitor aren’t the only spirits walking the halls of Ravencrest. There is the White Violet, a silent movie actress, and the Bride of Ravencrest, both mad, both lurking. And then there is the ghost haunting the dark and eerie indoor pool …

Sometimes the Living are More Dangerous than the Dead…

And the dead aren’t the only ones who have their eyes on Belinda. As her former roommate, Randi Tucker, pays a perilous surprise visit, the house administrator, Mrs. Heller, and limo driver, Walter Hardwicke, are making dangerous plans … plans that will have harrowing consequences for Belinda.

Darkness is Gathering

As the mansion’s terrifying secrets unravel, Belinda becomes convinced that she’s stepped into a world where reality has no rules. Even as she and her employer, the handsome and mysterious Eric Manning grow closer, darkness is gathering … on both sides of the Veil.

March 24th, 2015

Tamara and I finished the final edits on THE CLIFFHOUSE HAUNTING today. Tomorrow it will go off to the publisher for finishing touches and will make its way to e-readers by the end of this month – assuming nothing goes wrong. It’s been a joy writing this novel with Tamara and I’m very proud of it. Having finished CLIFFHOUSE, we now return full-time to GRANDMA’S RACK, which, too, is in the last stages and will be available within the next few months.

Meanwhile, I’m plugging along on my solo novel, and I’ll be disclosing its official title with the release of THE CLIFFHOUSE HAUNTING. This book has been a long time coming and has undergone many modifications – including name changes – but the final decision has been made. Its title is sound and appropriate, and I am much pleased.

In other writing news, a couple of my horror poems have been featured on Lindsey Beth Goddard’s blog. The two pieces she chose are titled THE BEAUTIFUL GIRL and A BOOK OF MORBID METHODS. Both of them are dear to me. You can check them out at: DIRTY LITTLE HORROR. While you’re there, give her a follow; it’s a great place to be.

Regarding Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE!, a slideshow gallery has been added to the guest page on my website. The new photo gallery features each of the show’s guests – those who have already appeared, and those who are scheduled for appearances. Check it out at: alistaircross.com/Guests

And speaking of websites, Tamara Thorne’s site is just about completed. I have seen it, and I approve. It’s beautiful, truly. And very fitting. Once it goes live, I’ll post about it so everyone can go check it out. It’s fantastic. I’m very excited.

Last but not least, DEAD GIRLS, the 6th installment of THE GHOSTS OF RAVENCREST, is just about ready to be released. I’m particularly fond of this episode because it introduces two characters – “The White Violet” and “The Bride of Ravencrest” – that I’m excited to learn – and write – more about. DEAD GIRLS will be available on April.

It’s been a long and busy past few months, but I’m excited for the material that is about to be released… and the material that is soon to begin.

Happy haunts,

~A

Dare to Cross the Threshold…

Ravencrest Manor is the most beautiful thing new governess, Belinda Moorland, has ever seen, but as she learns more about its tangled past of romance and terror, she realizes that beauty has a dark side. Ravencrest is built on secrets, and its inhabitants seem to be keeping plenty of their own – from the handsome English butler, Grant Phister, to the power-mad administrator, Mrs. Heller, to Eric Manning himself, who watches her with dark, fathomless eyes. But Belinda soon realizes that the living who dwell in Ravencrest have nothing on the other inhabitants – the ones who walk the darkened halls by night… the ones who enter her dreams… the ones who are watching… and waiting…

DEAD GIRLS, the 6th installment of THE GHOSTS OF RAVENCREST, will be available in April. Till then, check out the rest of the series:
