Dark Prophet, Book Two of the Best-Selling Novel, The Chronicles of Koa: Netherworld 

Not all vampires are created equal…

Koa is a half-blood vampire with not only the ability to fly, but survive in the sun’s light. She will do anything to protect her mother, and break her curse. The demon, Bund, wants more than her mother’s life. He wants something from Koa, a power that she doesn’t even know she has, and will rip through as many humans as he can to get her to surrender.

Agent Koa Ryeo-won, and her boss, Halston, formed a crew of supernatural agents to stop Bund. But is a prophet, a temptress, a War-Breeder, a half-blood with an enchanted sword, and a few angels enough to stop what Bund has planned?

In the midst of a war between the humans of the mortal world, and the creatures of the Netherworld, Koa discovers the truth of her past. She finds herself torn between two men, and in the center of everything. Faced with all of her returned memories, Koa also finds herself more powerful than ever. Being a half-blood is hard enough, but what exactly is Koa’s other half?

The truth can save…or destroy everything.  Will the Netherworld Division stand behind Koa once they learn her secret?

An Interview with Mark Souza & a Free Horror Story

Nightmares_eResFINALIt’s my pleasure to welcome horror writer Mark Souza to our Scary Story Blog today. Mark join’s us on the eve of releasing his latest work, “Nightmares, Bedtime Stories for the Wicked.”

(I know – it sounds like your cup of tea. Mine, too.)

Plus, Mark’s got a free story for you to download at the end of this article.

Lake: Thanks for joining us. Tell us a little about Nightmares and what influenced you to write it.

Mark: Lake, to be totally honest – shear laziness. These are all short stories that have been published in other anthologies over the years. I thought rather than have readers spend a small fortune buying the various anthologies these stories appear in, I could collect them all in a single anthology available for less than a skinny tall latte. I’ve been busy writing a novel and screenplays, so it’s been a while since I’ve published anything new. An anthology made sense in terms of letting people know I’m still breathing.

Lake: You’ve been publishing long enough to have a good backlist. Do you have a favorite among the work that’s out now?

Mark: A couple, actually. One is “Cupid’s Maze,” the short story that started it all for me. It was my first published story. Part of it is sentimental, but I reread it recently all these years later and it still holds up and makes me proud. The other (I’m cheating here, because it’s not out yet) is the novel I’m currently working on, “Zombie-saurus Rex,” which I plan to release later this year. It’s about a teenage zombie just trying to get along and get his high school diploma. I’ve kind of fallen in love with the character. It’s going to be hard letting him go.

Lake: Last Question – what scares you?

Mark: First let me say that I’ve suffered a great number of injuries in my life. What that has taught me is that pain can be dealt with. Real fear is anticipation, and anticipation is usually far worse than reality. To me, anticipation is gasoline that fuels horror. It’s one of the reasons I don’t write a lot of gore. Fear is psychological, it’s in the mind. Fear is being put in a horrible situation and imagining what will happen. On a personal level, what scares me most isn’t what might happen to me, it’s the terrifying things might happen to those I love.
