The Dead Game

Linda moves to a seaside town to live a quiet life. She opens a bookstore and makes new friends. Life is simple--that is until the dead body washes up on shore. Linda is horrified to find that dead bodies and disappearing tourists are common for this small town. As soon as the sun sets, the residents and tourists are stalked by dark shadows. But this is only the beginning.

Linda and her friends receive an unsigned invitation to a party at a deserted house. They are pursued through revolving rooms and dangerous traps, barely escaping with their lives. Two of their own remain trapped in the house. Or so they think.

They must embark on a difficult journey, chased by unnatural creatures, not knowing whom to trust, to uncover the one controlling the game and everyone in town. Who are The Dead? Are they humans or vampires? Or a combination of both? Will there be an end to their evil game? Will Linda and Todd find love?

The Dead Game has begun.

GAME ONE

My passions run deep.
My hatred grows strong.
My revenge lasts forever.
Don’t cross me.
Don’t anger me.
And don’t ever taunt me.
I am Wolf.

My cold fingers will run down her hot body.
She will wake to the sight of my glowing eyes.
She will experience passion not human.
And she will yearn for much more.
The dark prince will take her in his arms
And place her on his black steed.
They will ride off into the sunset,
Leaving memories of her old life far behind.
I am Wolf.

Will Linda fall for Wolf and his deadly charms?
Let me hear what you think & win an ebook.

GAME TWO

Linda is torn between two men--vampire vs. human vampire.

One hot. One cold

Linda finds Todd Morrison--a human vampire-- enticing but also mysterious and a little suspicious. She doesn’t know if he is involved in the deaths and disappearances in town. He’s too friendly with the strange residents living in the woods behind town, who hold secret parties at their lavish homes. He's much too aloof for her taste. But he is gorgeous with those dark, brooding eyes..

Charles Wolf--a vampire-- is dangerous and too arrogant for her liking. But he's drawn to her and she to him.

Which man will Linda choose? Give me your answer and win an ebook.

A ball in a glass house.

Nothing can be as nice.

Snow falling on the trees.

Whispers in the soft breeze.

A book for all

A Little About Me
I have always loved to read. I grew up with Agatha Christie, Alistair Maclean and so many others who filled my imagination with intrigue and mystery. The TV show, Murder She Wrote, kept me entertained when I wasn't reading late into the night.
Over the years, my taste in books changed to include the supernatural and paranormal genres and later reflected in my selection of shows, such as Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.
My first book, The Dead Game, is a paranormal suspense/mystery. I've brought together all of my favorites and created an enticing package of mystery, paranormal and horror. It brings fantasy and the surreal to the simple murder mystery. It has dead bodies and suspects. However, it also has humans, vampires and vampire derivatives. A touch of romance is thrown in to spice up the mix.

GAME FOUR

Three doors are waiting to be opened in the basement of End House. After trudging through a pool of water with descending circular saws and falling cages, Linda and her friends must find a way out of the evil house. What would you expect to find behind these doors? You are only limited by your imagination.

Again the best answer wins a kindle copy of The Dead Game.

Good luck!

A door to your imagination

Ame Terra | 29 comments Hi Susanne,
I have your book on my TBR list. It really is a different concept and I was wondering if there is anything similar (book/movie/tv) that you've come across. Also, is there an romance involved? From the blurb, it doesn't look like there would be time for that with having to stay alive and all. Ha!

R.M.
An endless loop is a great idea. Too bad I didn't think of it. But the rooms above have an endless loops.

Ame,
The first book has romance between Linda, Todd and Wolf. Not as much as book 2 which is now being written. A triangle made in hell.

Wolf can be scary with his black eyes and brooding good looks. But then there's Todd with his sarcastic wit. What's a girl to do?

Those are pretty much the theme of the book and End House. But do the friends defeat the evil creatures? That is, if they don't get lost in the house.

I love the TV show Supernatural. That might have influenced me a little. However, the vampires on that show are dark and creepy. The Originals have some elegant vampires. More to my taste. The Vampire Diaries lost its appeal to me. The small town in Forida follows from my love of small town mysteries. I've always loved haunted houses. So, to answer your question, the story is based upon my over-active imagination from too much TV and reading.
