cover1000Undercover Empath: Jorogumo, by RaShelle Workman

Rose hasn’t been into work in weeks. She needed the time off to recover from her run in with a serial killer that was also a demon.

But there’s a new case and this one is even crazier than the one before. Men are dying, their insides turned to mush, and their bodies left in a giant-sized spider web.

Rose must figure out who or what is behind the murders before someone she cares about ends up dead…

cover2500The Vampire Circus: Part Three, by Rod Kierkegaard Jr

Coco and Zuzu—based on the legendary Colette and Josephine Baker—are twins, separated at birth and brought up in Switzerland and Kentucky. Reunited as young women in the demi-monde of Parisian nude revues and houses of prostitution, they are forced to continue in their genetic heritage of vampirism, caused by a mutation to the syphilis spirochete.

Menaced by the oldest vampire still living, the shadowy Maître du Monde, and stalked by Coco’s lover Willy, a fifteen-year-old Vatican vampire hunter, as well as Johnny Durango, a formerly famous, now vengeful, “cowboy detective” fresh from an Arizona penitentiary, the two sisters together embark upon a phantasmagorical journey into international film stardom set against the vivid tapestry of 1920s Paris life.

If Proust and Zane Grey had collaborated on writing a sprawling erotic vampire epic brought to life in the worlds of Carnivale and Moulin Rouge, The Vampire Circus might be the result. The romantic and episodic style of the story arc is based on old-fashioned “penny dreadful” serials of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, such as Fantômas or Varney the Vampire.
