Here’s the scoop on our latest WG2E Anthology:

With this Spooky, Halloween-themed Anthology, you’ll never think of Halloween in quite the same way.

In this Fifth Edition of The WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies, you’re treated to a terrific, one-of-a-kind approach to the anthology concept.

You’ll get a variety of genres and story-lengths all packaged together as a wonderful way to discover some of today’s hottest new authors!

Plus, each WG2E Anthology is based on a different theme.

In this WG2E Spooky Shorts Edition, you’re getting short stories that yes, have a spooky, Halloween element, but you’ll never think of spooky or Halloween in quite the same way.

For example:

“Think one crazy aunt cooking up a cauldron full of trouble…it’s spell-casting gone awry and Voodoo Doll Hell” for D. D. Scott & David Slegg’s STUCK WITH A SPELL

“The future can be a frightening place, even for those with special powers” for PJ Sharon’s REDEMPTION

“Is Creepy Mouse Guy really a creep?” for Lois Lavrisa’s TREAT OR TRICK

“Sometimes, it’s not the undead who are truly scary” for Patricia (P.R.) Mason’s NOT A SPARKLE IN SIGHT

All the authors in the WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies are regular contributors to The WG2E site. At The WG2E, it’s all about writers helping writers reach readers with great books for great prices. It’s all genres and all story-lengths, from just a couple of pages to novel-length too!

For All of You Paranormal/Horror Fans…Check Out Tales From The Mist!

Happy Hump Day, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

Here at The RG2E, we’re beginning our Halloween Celebration early!!!

Check it out…from the wonderful Rhonda Hopkins

I’m so excited! Today is the release of TALES FROM THE MIST, a paranormal/horror anthology which includes eleven original short stories from some new authors in the horror genre and one reprint from best-selling author, Scott Nicholson.

Amazon US     Amazon UK     Barnes & Noble     Kobo     Smashwords

Wicked cover, right? As you can see, best-selling author Aiden James wrote the foreword for us. So very cool of him. 🙂 Thank you, Aiden!

The authors featured in this book are members of the WG2E Street Team and I am honored to be included among such talented writers. We’ve been working for months on this project. It’s been hard work, but fun and exciting too. I’ve learned so much from each of the other authors and am grateful for their support and encouragement.

Back of the cover blurb:

TALES FROM THE MIST will take you on a journey into the dark world of the paranormal. These twelve stories vary in their degree of horror, yet all reach across the boundaries of their genres into the chilling realms of the macabre. Witches, ghosts, shape-shifters and vampire rats are some of the creatures that reign within these pages.

Reviews:

From TW Brown, author of Dead: The Ugly Beginning: “To have a collection assembled by such a talented group of authors makes this THE anthology to own if you are a fan of horror.”

Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Mutated: “Tales From The Mist is one of those rare anthologies that gets it right from the first story to the last. It’s a magnificent feast of horror from some of the most assured voices working today. From cold-blooded tales of revenge to Faustian bargains to terrifying journeys into the dark corners of our world, these stories will make the shivers climb your back.”

Featured Authors:

So who all is featured in this anthology? Glad you asked! 😉 Here are the authors and their story blurbs:

Wampus Cat by Scott Nicholson

A camping trip into the Appalachian Mountains leads to the discovery of a spooky creature thought to be nothing more than a folk myth. 

The Consuming by Rhonda Hopkins

Serena knows her late uncle wasn’t crazy. So when she inherits his sprawling Carolina mansion and leaves the big city to restore both his home and his name, she uncovers a mystery that could cost much more than her sanity. As the house slowly reveals its dark secrets, and the extent of her peril becomes evident, she’ll settle for escaping with her life – if it isn’t already too late.

Addiction by Marty Young

If you were told you could become a God, would you? Imagine the power, and how it could be used. But then there’s that saying about power isn’t there? And how it corrupts…

The Messenger by Cate Dean

Sarah escapes her tour group, hoping to find some much needed alone time in the local cemetery. What she finds instead casts her in the unwanted role of savior, and forces her to make a life or death choice.

Jade O’Reilly & the Graveyard Shift by Tamara Ward

Private investigator Jade O’Reilly finds herself on security-guard duty at a supposedly haunted historic mansion on Halloween night. She doesn’t believe in the rumors that say the house is cursed; she doesn’t believe in ghosts. Will she by the end of her shift?

In A Beginning by Meredith Bond

There is no way Lilith is going to accept Adam’s chauvinistic attitude. If he wants to rule the Garden of Eden, she’s outta there! But things get a lot more interesting – and scarier – after she leaves the Garden and falls in love with the demon, Samael.

Haste by Catie Rhodes          

A betrayed wife who murders her cheating husband and his lover in a fit of rage becomes the victim of her own impulsiveness.

King of Rats by Gregory Carrico

All that stands between him and a lifetime of food is a Queen, his sister, and a surface world overrun by vampires. Will the King of Alley Rats risk everything for his throne and his pack, or leave it all behind for a pretty mouse in distress?

To E.A. Poe by Mitzi Flyte

In 1845 a grieving brother writes to the author, blaming Poe for his sister’s death. Could one of Poe’s short stories lead someone to do the unspeakable?

An Inconvenient Debt by Natalie G. Owens

A mother makes a Faustian bargain for her son’s freedom. But can she truly meet the cost when his real prison demands payment of a different debt?

Dead Lily Blooms by *lizzie starr

Someone wants vampyre Lily dead, and a bargain with Death has been struck. Death sends servant Agaar to bring Lily to him, but the task becomes more complicated than either Death or Agaar anticipated.

Beneath Still Waters by Stacey Joy Netzel

An old legend tells of a beautiful witch unjustly persecuted who became a ghost bent on revenge. The danger lies in not believing.

Seriously cool stories, if I say so myself. And, I do. 😉 I’ve read them all! Hopefully you’ll feel the same. 🙂

RG2E’s EOTD is Vickie Taylor’s Psychological Suspense Short Story Collection Of Heaven and Hell

TGIF, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

Here’s a short story that will keep you on the edge of your seats…

Author: Vickie Taylor

On Amazon , B&N Nook and Kobo

Price: 99 Cents

Explore the light and the dark sides of faith through two short stories by national bestselling author Vickie Taylor…

Faces in the Dark

Who knows what drives a man to madness? For Fred Tucker, it may be the simple random firing of overactive photoreceptor cells in his eyes—or his blind faith that nothing in this world is random. When Fred lies down to sleep, he sees faces. People he comes to believe are in danger. His descent into his own personal hell begins when he becomes obsessed with finding the people behind these faces, believing he must save them. And ends when he does find one, and accepts that he is no one’s savior, but something far more sinister.

Angel on My Shoulder

Seven-year-old Bethany’s secret wish is to be an angel in heaven. Her best friend Corey just wants to be like Bethany. Sadly, they may both get what they want.

Author Bio:

Vickie Taylor wrote her first novel in 1997. Upon completion, she was too chicken to give the manuscript to anyone she knew to read, so she sent her baby off to a few contests to get some anonymous feedback instead. Little did she know how her life was about to change: a few months later, she had won all four of the Romance Writers of America chapter contests she’d entered, was a Golden Heart finalist and had sold the book to Silhouette Intimate Moments!

Since then, Vickie has written numerous romantic suspense and paranormal romance novels for Midnight Ride Publishing, Silhouette Books and Berkley Sensation, garnering such recognition as the Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence in Romantic Suspense, a four-and-a-half star “Top Pick” review in Romantic Times, and four coveted Romance Writers of America “Rita” nominations for her work. Although she still writes and loves romance, these days Vickie is spreading her creative wings into many other fiction genres.

Vickie lives in a small town in north Texas dubbed “The Heart of Horse Country” where she rounds out her writing days raising horses, volunteering with the local Humane Society, and serving on a K-9 search and rescue team.
