I Am An Indie Author!

My name is Antoinette J. Houston and I’m a Multi-genre author in search of readers! I have written five (5) books since 2014 when I turned forty! My first book was an urban fantasy called Red Summer. It has turned into a three part series of which I am currently working the third and final book as we speak. It begins in Union City, Georgia, where I grew up. My second book was Red Summer’s sequeal: Wil’s Winter – Five years later. The characters have grown up and moved on (or are trying to).

The third book I completed was a total surprize and turned into a space opera; Mostly Human started out as an after thought. A reoccuring dream that wouldn’t go away until I put pen to paper. It grew into a series as well, a trilogy. Filled with angst, drama, suspense and romance and I was shocked to learn that my mother had picked it up, (yes, to support her daughter). She really enjoyed it. (My mother doesn’t read these kinds of books!) She is the reason for the second and third books! After completing the final book, my father picked it up and has informed me of his enjoyment in my writing as well. (He has also suggested that I do a fourth book … I’m thinking about it.)

My current project(s) include the third book for Red summer and the editing of my first epic fantasy of which I have been tinkering with for years now. At the sametime I am also working on what I believe is considereed a ‘time-slip’. You cna find my Epic fantasy on Wattpad and I am posting chapters of ‘The Amulet’ on my official Author’s Page @ AntoinetteHouston.com

That’s a little bit about me! Come check my stuff out!

Shadow Fabric Mythos Vol.1: Supernatural Horror Collection

51HyZCpOPYL.jpg

by Mark Cassell

 

Featured stories include:

16 Shadow Fabric mythos stories in one volume!

Includes the best-selling debut novel The Shadow Fabric, all stories from the collection Sinister Stitches, the short stories Ten Minutes Till Deadtime and Claimed, and also a previously unpublished mythos story Dead Lines.

Over 500 pages of absolute terror…

 

THE SHADOW FABRIC – a supernatural horror novel

Leo remembers little of his past. Desperate for a new life, he snatches up the first job to come along. On his second day he witnesses a murder, and the Shadow Fabric – a malevolent force that controls the darkness – takes the body and vanishes with it.

Determined to get answers, Leo has no idea where to turn. Revelations come in the most unlikely places, and secrets of witchcraft and ancient artefacts unfold. In particular, a device used in the 17th century to extract evil from witches proves key to his discoveries. With these truths long hidden from humankind, his memory unravels. Not only haunted by the past, a sinister presence within the darkness threatens Leo’s existence and he soon doubts everything and everyone…including himself.

The relentless and destructive power of the Shadow Fabric compels Leo to fight not only this growing darkness, but also the entity beneath the Fabric’s surface. While these supernatural horrors rage and his world crumbles, Leo must confront his past before he can embrace his future. But the future may not exist.

SINISTER STITCHES – a collection of short horror stories

Featured stories include:

NEXT ON THE LIST – “I hate changes.”
MIDNIGHT CLAY – …a mess of black and crimson.
A DEMON’S THREAD – …campfire stories…
ON THE VINE – Barbs sliced his forearms and the torch flew from his hand.
THE ARTIST AND THE CRONE – Part-flesh, part-shadow, the foul garment writhed on the ground.
DUE SOUTH – He really should’ve driven like most people.
RED, WHITE AND BLACK – …filth glistened, protruding through torn flesh and broken bone…
INTENSIVE SCARE – It churned like liquid, bubbled, and swept up and into my eyes.
MEETING MUM – Beneath the gleaming skin, those traceries of veins wriggled like a hundred worms.
SEEING IS BELIEVING – When he removed those glasses, I saw his bloodshot eyes.
DISTURBED – The night pressed down. His hands clawed his head, tugged at his hat. “No!”
WELCOME HOME – She’d vanished last night . . . or was it last week?

Each story binds the Shadow Fabric mythos tighter, revealing that everything around us is entwined with a deep-rooted darkness. And sometimes that darkness — the fabric — tears.

TEN MINUTES TILL DEADTIME & CLAIMED

Two stories that prove no matter where you are in the world, the darkness will find you…

DEAD LINES

A previously unpublished short tale of an artist struggling to meet deadlines because the dead have other plans.

Dark fantasy horror stories of demons, devices, and deceit.
