The Nancy Horror Novelization Tour for IN THE WOODS!

You don’t need umbrellas or raincoats or funny props to follow this Horror show on the road (but I’d love to have you sing along!).

Buy The Book Tours has assembled 21 sites to host IN THE WOODS during this first week of March 2-7. I wrote the monster/knights-of-old/sorcery/serial killer/suspense novelization from an original horror screenplay by writer/director Lynn Drzick. Having just celebrated its 15-year anniversary as a little Indie film that wouldn’t die, we’ve breathed new life back into the book, now available on Kindle, to coincide with the Spring 2015 Blu-ray and Video-on-Demand versions of the film, complete with voice over commentaries by director Lynn Drzick, leading man DJ Perry and . . . me! Here’s a peek at IN THE WOODS . . .

Hundreds of years ago their battle began . . .

In an age of knights and sorcery, a good king must raise a monster to protect his people from the demon unleashed by a dark-hearted enemy determined to claim his kingdom. But once called forth upon blood-drenched fields, can such evil ever be truly laid to rest?

To a present day community held hostage by fear, a serial killer will soon be the least of its worries after two off-duty firefighters enter a forest and find a grave. What they dig up isn’t a victim or family pet. When they race from the woods, they bring a timeless hell with them . . .

Based upon the original horror screenplay IN THE WOODS by Lynn Drzick, now an independent motion picture.


And it came on, mowing down everything in its way in its eagerness to latch onto him with those gaping jaws.

Alex burst out into the clearing, falling hard over the tangle of his own feet. His outstretched hand furrowed into freshly turned earth as he found himself staring down into an empty grave. There, he saw the sack he’d torn open. The bones were gone. He knew where they were. They’d taken on meat and sinew and flesh and fur. And the all of it was right at the edge of the circle, a massive compilation of death and drool and crisped dog hair.

He was going to die. 

Be still my heart!

IWSG: Which Door to Choose . . .

This new year presents with a problem I’ve never had before – not a lack of choices, but rather too many of them. I’ve always been bound to the contractual desires of my publishers so options were limited. But not so in 2015 . . .

It’s a Fright Fest!

Welcome to my nightmare with my two favorite things: a book and a movie!

Back on October 17, 2014 old friends reunited at the 15 Year Anniversary screening of Indie horror film IN THE WOODS. Director Lynn Drzick, leading man DJ Perry and I hadn’t seen each other for years, but the creative spark was immediately rekindled due to our shared love of film. Here’s a bit of our history . . .

IWSG: Let It Go! … Starting 2015 Without the Baggage

Over the holidays I finally watched Frozen (I think I was one of the last holdouts!). Cute movie, great animation, heavy rotation songs, but the message resonated: Carrying around the pain, perceived failures and wrongs of the past snowballs into a crushing weight that becomes impossible to carry. We place this burden upon our own shoulders by allowing it to overshadow our dreams, our self-talk and motivation. This year, my resolutions don’t revolve around what I plan to obtain, but rather, what I plan to leave behind (over and above those pesky holiday pounds!). This right-on-the-money motivator will be hanging above my laptop:

Getting to Know Your Favorite (or new favorite!) Author: 20 Questions with Lora Lee

It seems like I’ve been waiting just about FOREVER for a new release from one of my favorite authors (it’s always so much loooonger when it’s anticipated!). I’m so excited to raise the roof over BRINGING IN THE THIEVES, the first book (of hopefully MANY!) in Lora Lee’s “Joyful Noise” cozy mystery series. You might already know Lora Lee as Loralee Lillibridge, and realize you’re in for a great curl up in a chair, turn off the phone and shoo away the family read. If not, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to both the book and the author – one of my fabulous critique partners and role model (I want to be LL when I grow up!) who can’t help but tote around a ray of Texas sunshine wherever she goes, and knows how to eat grits the right way, just like I was taught!

Give a big “Yee Haw” welcome to Lora Lee as she shares a bit about herself . . .

Ashes of Eden Review

I’m all about giving a shout out when one of my friends’ done good. I met DJ Perry over fifteen years ago when I wrote the novelization for IN THE WOODS, the Indie horror film he was starring in.

The Gifts From Door-to-Door with The Christmas Wonder Giveaway Hop!

As a child, one of the things I loved about the holidays was Christmas caroling. My sisters and I would join the neighbor kids and go from house to house along our block singing our favorite songs of the season (my favorite was “Oh, Come All Ye Faithful” because I did the harmony). We’d be invited inside to warm our noses and our insides with hot chocolate and cookies. In the same spirit, the Christmas Wonder Giveaway Hop invites you to go blog-to-blog from December 1 to December 31 to hear what we love most about the season, and which books have made our Christmas wish lists! There's a giveaway at each stop so be sure to visit them all!

New Contemporary Release: FROM THIS DAY FORWARD

One of the worst feelings for an author is to sell a book then never have it see the light of day. When Zebra closed the doors on its imaginative Lucky In Love line back in the ‘90s—just months before my contemporary FROM THIS DAY FORWARD was supposed to be released—I was left with a gorgeous cover and that empty sense of loss. I never expected to have the satisfaction of placing my story in readers’ hands until Deb Dixon met with me at a conference in NYC decades later and asked about my backlist. Yes! Did I ever have backlist!
