He lights my fire
to take me higher.
The town’s on fire,
set by the sire.
He comes tonight
for the big fight.
He comes for me
from the dark sea.
PREY FOR THE DEAD
Welcome to The HORROR/THRILLER B2B CYBER CONVENTION and EXPO 2018.
This is the link to the B2B CONVENTION Website: http://b2bcycon.com
And this is the link to the CYBER CONVENTION ON GOODREADS: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/154267-brain-to-books-cyber-convention-fairgrounds
You will meet authors of all genres at the B2BCYCON, but here we focus on the scary and the bloody that authors of horrors and thrillers enjoy dabbling their fingers in.
My book, The Dead Game, falls into this creepy category. With vampires, human vampires, and plenty of gore, it will take you to the dark side.
Be sure and visit my virtual booth at the B2B CONVENTION ON GOODREADS. I will be awarding books for playing my games. And if you’ve read The Dead Game, you already know that The Dead love their fun and games–preferably at night.
Come One, Come All to the Greatest Book on Earth!
The games will be dark.
They will be scary.
For The Dead take no hostages.
Eyes wide open.
Enter this link for a peek into book two coming this summer:
BLOG HOP BOOK INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:
1- Describe your main character in one or two sentences.
Linda wants a peaceful life for herself and her friends. She wants happiness above all else and sometimes tries too hard to achieve it.
2- Which one word would you use to describe your antagonist? Now, which word would your antagonist use to describe him or herself?
Todd is decisive. He would call himself a leader. He is a born leader.
3- What’s the worst thing your main character has done?
Linda agrees to go along with Shana’s plan of confronting Wolf in his home without backup.
4- What is the most prized possession of your antagonist? And why?
Linda loves her books. They allow her to escape from reality.
5- What is the one part of your book that you, as the author, like best?
I like all of it since I wrote it. If I were to pick one scene, it would be the party in the glass house. As snow falls outside, the guests dance around the lifelike ice sculptures of people.
After the questions, you will do a one paragraph reading of a beginning of a chapter (any chapter, author’s choice). Remember no graphic sex or violence.
The next morning, Louise arrived early at her store. As soon as she stepped through the doorway, she sensed that something was wrong: the air was frigid, and the lights wouldn’t turn on. From the corner of her eye, she noticed a shadow pass by her. She was terrified that the creeping shadows were now stalking her inside and in the daylight.
Turning to leave the store, she grabbed the door handle but found that it wouldn’t budge in either direction. Staring through the door’s plate glass window, she saw that the town was deserted. All the other stores along Main Street were still closed, except for the sheriff’s office, which was too far away to be of any help. She was all alone with no one around to save her. If she cried out for help, no one could hear her. She felt panic beginning to overwhelm her.
She couldn’t breathe; it felt like all the oxygen in the room had been sucked out. Panicking, she gasped for air, but there didn’t seem to be any left in the locked store.

My name is Emiliano Ortega. I didn’t ask to be a paw in Truth’s game yet here I am playing the Reaper when all I want to do is sleep.

My main antagonist is Ecrin. Her villainous path is a bit ambiguous. She’s good and she’s bad…but the why remains to be revealed. Mostly, she’s misunderstood and she’s acting out of desperation. I modeled her appearance after Tilda Swinton’s character in The Only Lovers Left Alive.

Enjoy the thrills.
Enjoy the fun.
Its door opens.
Candlelight streams out.
We peek inside.
Grim faces stare back.
Gargoyles stand sentinel
along the curving staircase.
The wind brushes our skin
with its unseen fingers.
Candles light the way
down the right hall.
Shadows move and sway
with the flickering candles.
The door locks behind us.
We’re in for the ride.
End House has spoken.
THE DEAD GAME
The waves are churning.
My face is burning.
What’s coming for me.
I don’t want to see.
It rises from the deep.
When all are fast asleep.
The Dead come ashore.
For me they’ve come for.
There’s nowhere to run or hide.
I refuse to take their side.
The Dead will not win.
They’re dripping with sin.
THE DEAD GAME
“Should I walk up the stairs?
Should I peek into the window?
Should I see if the door is locked?
Do you think anyone is home?
It seems to be deserted.”
Her friends close behind.
The house sighs.
THE DEAD GAME by Susanne Leist
A ride to hell and back.
I will sit in the back.
We fly through the night air.
Sound barriers we tear.
Demons fly by our side.
I have nowhere to hide.
They take us to their lair.
I’m pulled hard by my hair.
Life is over for me.
I’ll never be set free.
The cobblestones glisten
outside the dark cemetery.
Gravestones stand tall
in the heavy fog.
Moans sweep the winds
that rustle the lifeless trees.
A gate stands open
to welcome the curious.
Footsteps draw closer
to my hiding place.
A cloaked figure enters
the home of The Dead.
It enters a mausoleum
with an angel standing guard.
Goosebumps riddle my body
as I inch forward from my spot.
Dark shadows drift to the door
that the figure has left open.
I can’t stand the suspense any longer
and so I must follow their lead.
I must find the meeting place
of The Dead and gone.
