Greylock @PaulaCappa1

Amazon | Facebook |Goodreads | Smashwords | Twitter | Website

Four murders in Boston, an intoxicating romance, beautiful betrayals and lies, and the flickering phantasmagoria. Inside the supernatural realm beats sinister music. Just ask violinists Paganini or Tartini about their deals with the devil for their virtuosity.

Greylock is a mesmerizing tale that is composed like an eloquent symphony.  Author Paula Cappa is the composer that handles the characters and plot with finesse. Prose within these pages will linger and haunt you deep into the night. It’s a mashup of music,fiction, and the supernatural; and I love every single page!

"No monitor. It's all happening inside my head. I'm seeing a pod of white whales suspended underwater. Must have been a hundred. Their heads are joined together in a circle. Beluga white whales. Pure as angels, singing like an orchestra with long streaming notes. Melodies. Rhythms. All it needed was percussion."

Pianist Alexei Georg is seeking to record the songs of a pod of Beluga white whales. While on his journey a shaman notices a dark entity holding onto his soul. Now Alexei runs away from his ex, the darkness inside him, and society straight to Mount Greylock.

The only draw back to “Greylock”(and this is a small quibble), I feel some of the passages are drawn out and could be summed up in a fewer amount of words. it makes up for that with great descriptions,characters and dialog. Author Paula Cappa  has written an engaging and worthwhile read that could be the story of the year.

Releases Dec. 8th, 2015:


“Well, you need to remember everything you’ve been told about the neutral area between strongholds. The Outlands of Temple are cursed. Yes, it’s a large city and thrumming with people, but it’s also a supernatural focal point. A vortex of some sort that attracts people. Normal and supernatural alike.”

I gulped. “So it rains here all the time. Why would anyone want to stay here?”

Ephrem rubbed his face, scratching his chin.

“Look, I don’t know how much they’ve told you, but like I said, it attracts people. It attracts all sorts of unsavory people too. That’s why it’s dangerous to go traipsing around this place at night. Actually, it’s not safe at any time. No one leaves willingly, either. This place is like… I don’t know… like the strongest magnet in the world. It draws you in, latches onto you and never lets go. People are warned to never come here. Only those of superior supernatural powers are ever able to break the hold it has over them.

I stared at him in horror. “What? Are you saying I’m stuck here?”

He frowned, letting his eyes drop down to his coffee as he added sugar and cream to it. Stirring furiously, he took a moment before answering me.

“Technically, yes.”

~Lily & Ephrem - The ArcKnight Chronicles

“My Lady, I cannot leave you here alone. It’s not safe.”

I whipped my eyes open and glared at him. “I told you I was banished. You can stop with the formalities and get. I don’t have time to waste on a pathetic royal guard. Especially a MarkTier. I'm okay on my own.”

“If you come with me, I know a safe place where you can get out of the rain and get warm.”

I laughed. It came out more hysterical than I intended, but I was not in a mood to keep it together any longer. The fact that he offered me any shelter at all, most likely his home, was gracious, yet the knowledge that it was most likely on ArcKnight territory made the offer even more bittersweet. I was banished not only from the royal ArcKnight palace but from lingering on any of the pack’s territories, which included a substantial chunk of the city.

I was truly alone now.

“You’d be punished for harboring a non-citizen… a traitor like me. I can’t. You know I can’t.”

He held out his hand. It glistened with water, for he was soaked to the bone, just like me. The cold rain didn’t affect him at all. I was the one shivering and on the verge of hypothermia, and yet he waited patiently.

“It’s beyond the ArcKnight border. I promise.” His eyes gleamed in the momentary moonlight sneaking past the storm clouds above. They were breathtaking and unusual. I’d never seen another shifter with eyes like his.

It may be beyond the ArcKnight stronghold, but they weren’t the only pack ruling the city.

“But the MarkTiers….”

“They have no jurisdiction there either.”

Staring at him in disbelief, I let my eyes linger on his for an eternal moment. His offer brought more questions to my mind than anything else. Even so, there was something there that held me in a trance and beckoned me to follow. Taken in by that hypnotizing cobalt sea, I reached out, accepted his hand and let him lead me through the murky city paths I’d never trodden, deeper into the unknown.

This place was now my new home, and it was nothing but strange and frightening.

But what choice did I have?

Chosen: Book III(Full Wolf Moon Trilogy) @KLNappier

Chosen: Book III(Full Wolf Moon Trilogy)

Author: K.L. Nappier

Full Wolf Moon Trilogy Book III: Chosen by K.L. NappierBuy Chosen: Book III of Full Wolf Moon Trilogy On Amazon

Chosen Book III Full Wolf Moon Trilogy on Goodreads

Alone, drugged and disoriented, a re-bitten David Alma Curar wakens to find he is at the mercy of Niyol, a self-styled Navajo sorcerer known as a skin walker. Yearning to bend a wave of fresh horror to his purpose, Niyol holds David captive and nurtures the Great Beast toward its Emergence.

Chosen is the third installment of the Full Wolf Moon Trilogy and the author saved the best for last. David has been drugged and captured by a Navajo skin walker determined to bring the Great Beast to emergence. All The while, Doris, Max, and the rest of the hunters search for David; not knowing that a bigger threat is to blame for their friend’s disappearance.  The author crafts a chilling tale peppered with bits from the previous installments but still leaving the story accessible to new readers as well.

I’m by no means a history buff(couldn’t stand it in school) but the author’s ability to delve into actual historical facts within these books and yet have them work with the stories is masterfully done. In Chosen she delves into The Navajo Nation(The Reservation) during the 1950’s. An interesting moment in our history that adds more depth to the characters.

I have thoroughly enjoyed following the characters from the beginning and thanks to the author’s rich descriptions and prose I found myself getting into the minds of each character. Chosen is the best of the trilogy, but all three are great reads and shouldn’t be missed.

Q&A with Author Paul Loh

I had the luxury of taking a bit of time and talking with the talented author,actor, and man of many talets; Paul Loh. He is the editor for the "Possessions" anthology, "The Greater Number", and "The Nocent Part 2: Advent of Scathing".

What was your experience with publishing your first story?
I was in the Navy, learning how to be a submariner at Sub School in Groton, Connecticut when I came up with a story of two alien races of the same species coming to earth in a space ship. My idea was that onboard, they had a huge civil war that ended up with total fatalities on both sides. I had the idea that the craft would crash on earth and that the spirits of the different races would possess people and they would continue their war using our bodies.
Eventually, I finished Sub School and was stationed in St. Marys, Georgia on board the USS Wyoming, SSBN 742. During one of my deployments, I met an officer who had published a coffee table book of photos he took of nature. He told me about, a self-publishing service website. When I got back to shore, I submitted my manuscript for my story to lulu and had it published.
I ordered a paperback copy to be sent to me, but I was deployed again before it arrived. I had my then wife send it to me out to sea. When it arrived, so many of my shipmates wanted to read it. I barely got a chance to look at it because it was constantly out on loan! That was a great feeling.
What sub-genre of horror (that hasn't been popular in a while. ex: zombies are big now. used to be vamps etc.) would you like to see a re-emergence of?
I don't know about a re-emergence, but I'd love to see an emergence of a genre that mixes the paranormal with zombies. That's what I like to write. Nobody ever talks about what happens to the disembodied spirits of the zombies. Imagine if stuff like Poltergeist was going on during Night of the Living Dead.
Wouldn't that just up the creepiness factor by about a million? There are lots of great ghost stories being told these days and lots of great zombie ones two. I just think that there's some definite territory to be explored between the two
What is one horror movie you could watch over and over?
Well, since I already mentioned it, Poltergeist. I'm talking about the original. I haven't seen the remake. It was the one thing in this world that has helped me to form my ideas about the spiritual realm. I went to church for seven years and never learned as much as I did from watching that movie.
The fact that it's based on actual documented phenomena makes it one of the scariest movies I've ever seen. On a side note, I had the privilege of appearing in Ambush At Dark Canyon with James Karen who plays Steven's boss. He also played Frank in Return of the Living Dead, which is another movie I've seen dozens of times. Maybe, subconsciously, that's why I mixed the two genres in my mind because he's in two of my favorite movies.
what is your most ambitious project to date and what projects(if any) have you been disappointed in the outcome or process?
My most ambitious project is one I plan to take on soon. I will be collecting a bunch of my old poems, song lyrics, comic strips, stand-up comedy routines and anything else I can find and compiling them all into a book. I've got to search through old boxes full of random papers to find it all, type it into a computer or scan it, then organize it all. On a related note, I'll also be putting out a collection of my children's books. I wrote six of them and illustrated them. I'll have to scan them into a computer and organize it all. I have not been disappointed in any of my projects so far (knock on wood).
You have two items with you during the apocalypse. One is book. What book would you have and what would the other item be?
The book would be almost anything from Joe McKinney because he often has people surviving in zombie apocalypses under horrible circumstances. It would basically be a survival guide. The other item would be a shark bite proof chainmail suit.
Tell the readers about your current projects and where they can find you online.
 I am currently working on a collection of my short stories called Solace In Solitude. I am also working on a movie called Heartbreak Bait, which is based on my story Smart Phone from the Possessions anthology. My books can be found at under my name.
