Aron Beauregard’s ‘Scary Bastard’ Got a Facelift!

I love this picture thingy, and don’t care what it’s intended use is!

– Some New Content As Well –

When I picked up TRY THE NEW CANDY and saw the added bonus of the illustrations I knew I’d found something special. Now I look forward to the illustrations almost as much as new stories – almost. Both covers are cool, but who doesn’t love an unattached head?! The slick ass new cover is just in time for this Halloween slasher, too! It may not stick around, so you should make sure you own both… It’s money in the bank – one will be a collectors item.

You’ve read it, right? If I heard a ‘no’ out there somewhere, it’s the perfect time to fix that faux pas. Scary Bastard expands on one of the SSs in Try The New Candy. The book just celebrated it’s first birthday, and it grew two whole chapters for it’s b-day! Now the slick ass cover is on ‘The Author’s Preferred Edition‘ 😉 What better time than a brisk October night to read a blood drenched tale that takes place on Halloween, and is packed with more craziness than a normal person could handle?! NEVER! There’ll never be a better time than now! So… stop trying to pretend you’re normal, and GO GET SCARY BASTARD!

What do a child killer, a hopeful special effects artist, a duo of budding teen psychopaths, a student screwing teacher and a mutated maniac with his lower jaw missing have in common? They’re all out this Halloween. How will their paths cross? Who’s killing who? Can anyone survive the bloodbath or are they all destined to drown in a pool of warm red? This slasher nightmare gives you a seat beside the killer but don’t get too comfortable, there’s a Scary Bastard on the loose… (This book includes 9 horrifying illustrations to guide you through the terror!)

CRADLE TO THE COFFIN: THE FABLE OF DRACULA AND LULU By Alan Gandy

CRADLE TO THE COFFIN: THE FABLE OF DRACULA AND LULU
By Alan Gandy
cover-5
Did you ever wonder about Dracula’s childhood? His parents? Do you think you know how he became Vampire, better yet – do you think you know how any Vampire came to be?

The Fable of Dracula & Lulu is a ‘children’s book for adults’, that takes us on the journey of how a sad & lonely little boy became the infamous blood sucker we know today. Alan Gandy has rewritten Dracula’s history, good vs evil, Heaven vs Hell, and even Epic Battles have rules!

It’s greatly written, beautifully illustrated, and includes an afterward from the author that show how much time, effort, and research went into this book.

I really enjoyed this story, and it has me thinking about the childhood lives of other monsters! Was The Creature From The Black Lagoon bullied in school because of the way he looked? Did the Warewolf have to seek therapy because of body issues? What if The Mummy was claustrophobic? Do you think The Invisable Man got lonley?
