The old bookstore.

 

Why don’t we have these anymore?

Books covering ceiling to floor.

Happiness between the binding.

What a perfect and safe finding.

Read in the candlelight.

Nothing can be as right.

Pictures and words before my eyes.

Reading about truth and some lies.

You’ll definitely find me hiding.

The tall shelves of books I’ll be minding.

Imagine a place like this.

The perfect hotel of bliss.

Endless books to read.

Walls of books everywhere.

All you need is a chair.

Never run out of a book.

Just pick your favorite nook.

Read the day away.

Nothing else to say.

A VISION

 

A VISION 

The bookstore is dark. 

I turn on the lights. 

Rows of bookcases loom tall. 

I open the curtains. 

The Florida sun flows in through picture windows. 

Bright squares fall across the floor. 

The perfect spot for comfy couches and chairs. 

A counter with stools to the right, 

where I would serve coffee and pastries. 

Book stacks to the left. 

Yes, it’s all coming alive to me. 

A bookstore/ coffee shop 

in the seaside town of Oasis. 

Little did I know of the otherworldly plans

taking place at the same time as mine. 

Plans that are in no way 

as peaceful and innocent as mine. 

THE DEAD GAME

A LEAP OF FAITH

I still believe in my words from 2013.

 

 

 

I love to read all types of books: mysteries, thrillers, romance, horror, paranormal…

One day, I was in a bookstore, searching for a murder mystery with a haunted house in a small town. I couldn’t find any. Haunted houses didn’t seem to be as popular as they used to be. 

That day, I decided to write my own murder mystery in a coastal town with a deserted house. It’s called The Dead Game. The town’s inhabitants, who live in the woods behind Oasis, only come out at night. The story took a supernatural turn. I incorporated some satire and my wry sense of humor and it was done.

I took a leap of faith. I self-published my book. Time will tell if it becomes popular. My one desire is for people to read it and enjoy it. I have my murder mystery in a haunted house.

Please read it and enjoy!

The Dead Game – Susanne Leist (5 Stars )

Linda opens up a bookstore in the normal seaside town of Oasis, Florida. Making new friends and meeting tourists while starting up her business is a breeze in this tranquil Paradise, but when people start disappearing after sunset, later to be found dead and drained of blood, it is time to figure out what is happening .
When they get a invitation to a party they decide to go and end up in a rickety old house where they have to fight for survival in a cat and mouse game, all while they are stalked my unhuman creatures.
Could this be the end ??
This was a thrilling, vampire Horror, mystery storyline that kept me reading . I was quickly Immersed within this authors original plot line, with entertaining characters and Blood draining creatures from page one .
I felt like I was dropped in the middle of a maze and was trapped and had to find my way out before they found me …deadly consequences resulting !
I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who loves Mystery, Thrillers or vampires.

A VISION

The bookstore is cold and dark.

I turn on the lights.

Stacks of bookcases stand tall.

I open the curtains.

The Florida sun flows in.

Couches and chairs would be

perfect between the corner windows.

A counter with stools by the front door,

where customers could enjoy my coffee and pastries.

Yes, it is all coming alive to me.

A perfect bookstore/ coffee shop.

I could see a peaceful future for me

in the seaside town of Oasis.

Little did I know of the otherworldly plans

taking place at the same time as mine.

And these plans are in no way as

peaceful and innocent as mine.

ODE TO MY BOOK

Nothing can be as fine

As the dear book of mine.

It might not be sold in a big bookstore,

But you will not find one to offer more.

It was created with much love and hope,

Even though it wasn’t blessed by a Pope.

It has my blood, sweat, and tears.

Might raise many of your fears.

It has action, murder, and romance.

I can even do a little dance.

Please try it and you’ll see

It has the best of me.
