Hello, my erstwhile readers! I’ve been under the weather this week, so I haven’t been in touch too much lately. But I did manage to pull myself together to welcome yet another wonder in the romance world. This week’s guest is Eden Glenn. Eden is one of the contributing authors in the Rebel Ink Press anthology, Once Upon a Twisted Tale. This week she’ll be giving us a little taste of her twisted tale, “The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp.” I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. I can’t WAIT to get these twisted tales on my Nook…
Hello. Thank you for the opportunity to blog with your readers today. I thought it would be fun to drop by for a cup of chai tea and chat a little about an upcoming release from Rebel Ink Press. I am so excited to be part of A group of authors who came together for this fun anthology “Once Upon A Twisted Tale”
Escape to a world of make believe where all your grown up fantasies can now be realized. Where Neverland means never denying yourself the most intimate, wicked treats and where what you wear to the ball isn’t nearly as important as what you don’t. Experience a tantalizing set of stories where fairy tales take on an unexpected twist and journey to a place where real love isn’t defined in terms of a cookie cutter princess. After all, happily-ever-after isn’t the staple of a charmed life…
When the call went out I knew I wanted to be part of this collection. I am finding many readers want short novellettes to pick up and finish in an evening. Life is so fast paced and they want completion in one sitting for their reading enjoyment.
Ideas started coming together for the story. My partner R.M. Kinore (anthology story: “The Emperor’s New Clothes: No More Hiding”) helped me find a setting that gave me that tingly feeling and “The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp” was born.
The Galloping Ghoul rides each full moon, exacting revenge by frightening those who tormented his past. By day, he is one of the town people, Nathaniel Hawkins, an affluent entrepreneur. He identifies with Ike Sandhill, a government surveyor, and wants to protect him from the same thugs who drove Nathaniel to revenge. Ike goes to the extreme to prove to everyone how straight laced he is. He pursues Misty VonMix with the intention of marriage. Nathaniel doesn’t know how to confess his desire without driving Ike away. He comes up with a plan of seduction. Before the night is over Ike discovers things about himself he always knew, yet denied.
Somewhere in the Bridgewater Triangle, old wives tell tales in hushed tones about strange lights in the sky and the Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp. They say the specter rides on the night of the full moon. They don’t know what drives him to haunt unsuspecting travelers. Those who’ve crossed his path flee in fear for their lives. If the victims know why he rides, they never say.”
Eden Glenn writes paranormal erotic romance. She lives in the mountains of Chattanooga, Tennessee with her partner and four of their five children, two cats, one ghost (that they know of) and a dog.
“Prepare to leave your safe world behind. Come with me to places where things aren’t always what they seem and destiny is the master.”
