Library Title Picks – December 2022

Hello Readers!

Since my grad school semester ended, I’ve been able to get back on track with my blog, and I’m glad I had some time to give new indie books a thought.

My library lets me pick out three titles to purchase physical copies of per month, and I love supporting my fellow indie authors. To start things off I’m sticking to my roots, meaning these are all horror reads.

Give these books a looksee (links and blurbs below), and if you feel so inclined, please support these talented indie authors by adding a book to your TBR or purchasing a copy!

Thanks for tuning in!

From the author of Paradise, Maine.

Some legends never die….

The White Wolf, the Beast of Brenton Woods, a legendary creature said to walk like a man. When the full moon rises, it will feast.

Unseen for years, truth has turned to rumor, mere folklore. Until something lures the monster from exile, calling it home.
For Tyler and Ben, a firsthand encounter leads to an exploration of the forbidden depths of Brenton woods, and for Ben, the discovery of a family secret.

When Wendy and her friends hangout in the abandoned cabin is compromised, the hunt begins. The target of a creature’s desire, Wendy is hearing whispers in the night, finding footprints outside her window, and can’t shake the dreadful feeling that something is waiting for her.

Deputy Kathy Wilcox understands the disturbances, the shredded carcasses, and the growing list of missing persons in town are connected to something larger than life. Will her acceptance of the legend end in tragedy?

There’s a full moon above, the night is coming down, and blood is about to run.




When NZDF Sergeant Taine McKenna and his squad are tasked with escorting a bunch of civilian contractors into Te Urewera National Park, it seems a strange job for the army.
Militant Tūhoe separatists are active in the area, and with its cloying mist and steep ravines, the forest is a treacherous place in winter.

Yet nothing has prepared Taine for the true danger that awaits them. Death incarnate.
They backtrack toward civilisation, stalked by a prehistoric creature intent on picking them off one by one. With their weapons ineffective, the babysitting job has become a race for survival.
Desperate to bring his charges out alive, Taine draws on ancient tribal wisdom. Will it be enough to stop the nightmare? And when the mist clears, will anyone be left?





This Darkness Got to Give is a story to die for…

Cain lives the unconventional life of a Deadhead, one of the many fans following the Grateful Dead’s fateful 1995 tour as part of the Dead’s colorful, uninhibited entourage. A vampire determined to fly below the governmental radar, he has carefully constructed his life into one of sheep’s blood and self-control. Drugs aren’t really his thing considering the circumstances, but it only takes one dose from a stranger for Cain’s world to collapse around him and end in what he’d been determined to avoid: murder.

Bodies mount behind Cain as his control frays ever further, and more than one government agency takes notice. The FBI sends Jenkins, a methodical agent who has experience with vampires, and the secretive Invasive Species Division sends Peter, a rootless recent grad who fits a strange list of qualifications. The closer those on Cain’s trail get, however, the less straightforward capturing him becomes, until decades-old governmental secrets are forced into the light and those responsible must face justice, one way or another.


That’s A Wrap!

Well that’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed these library picks of mine!
