Horror Collection Giveaway!

Win free books!

It’s January. In the northern hemisphere it gets dark early (3:30pm in Massachusetts). It’s cold and snowy. It’s 2021, which may not be much better than 2020 (if we’re lucky). I think it’s time for a nice giveaway!

This is your chance to get all three books (Kraulaak, Bribre, and the Wicked Women anthology) plus some extra goodies like a warm cowl and tea supplies.

How do you enter?
First, you need to be a US resident (i.e. live in the US). I will confirm this before I announce the winner.
Second, follow me on Instagram, like the horror/fantasy Facebook page, or sign up for the horror/fantasy mailing list. You can do all three. Each one gets you an additional entry.
Third, wait for January 18th when I will pick the winner.

Wicked Women Anthology Ebook and Paperback On Sale Now!

Short story anthology from the New England Horror Writers

Last year my story “Does This Bring You Joy?” was accepted and published in this amazing horror anthology. Featuring stories by women in the New England Horror Writers group, this anthology showcases some amazing stories from budding authors and well known ones. I’ve read and heard (during reading events) many of the stories but mine remains my favorite.

You can get your copy on Amazon now. Hopefully, when we hold live events again, I will be available to sign autographs on my story. Here are the links and they will be added to the list of my horror books.

Northanger Parks Trailer and Cover Released!

Preorder the ebook now.

Welcome to the most wonderful place in the universe! A place for joy, friendship, and maybe love.

Katie Merton is a graduate student with an impulsive streak. When her aunt and uncle invite her to join them on a last-minute, all-expense-paid trip to the Northanger Parks California theme park and resort, she jumps at the chance to visit her favorite place! Who cares that she’s just started her final semester of graduate school and has a temporary job as a project manager starting in a few weeks?

Katie knows she’s made the right decision to take this trip when she meets popular YouTube personality Ethan Thornton and his sister. Spending time with them makes the trip even more magical, and Katie finds herself unexpectedly carried away by the possibility of a new relationship.  

She’s convinced she’s right about Ethan’s feelings for her when the Thornton’s invite her to extend her vacation by joining them for a week at the Northanger Parks in Florida. Once there, Katie struggles with the Thornton’s domineering father, who sends her packing when Katie brashly kisses Ethan. Heartbroken, Katie returns home seeing all the ways her assumptions and misjudgments led to her banishment.  She has to learn to accept Ethan’s needs and make sure they fit with hers if she’s ever going to find her happily ever after.

This is a modernization of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey and the 4th in the 21st Century Austen Chick Lit series.

Bribre Horror Story Collection Release Details!

Bribre Coming July 27th!

Accepting the Opportunity Will Destroy You

Women all over the world are going into business with Bribre – a multilevel marketing company. Selling clothes at home parties, some find it a great way to earn an income for their families. But, the vast majority go into debt, blaming themselves when the odds were always against them.  Fay is an academic researching Bribre and their cult-like actions. The longer she’s involved, the more immersed she is in a world of secrets and betrayal. The deeper she goes, the closer she gets to destroying everything for those around her. 

In these seven interconnected stories, we follow the women who will fail in Fay’s wake. Join author Sara Marks as she explores the true-life horror of these companies and discovers Bribre’s true master.

Wickedly Ever After Now Available!

Featuring “The Prince Without A Throne”

Something wicked this way comes–and this time, wicked is going to win.
Villains are the heroines and heroes of their stories and in this anthology they are going to be the leading players–and finally find love. In these 10 stories you will find villains from fairy tale, folklore and myth. From the familiar to the fantastic. From Hades to Grendel.
You’ll meet:

  • A man who gets more than he expected by binding himself to a selkie.
  • A woman who discovers the loveable Beast in the young man she once knew.
  • A mermaid who is not meant to be with a prince.
  • A witch who has so much more to offer than a cabin made of sweets.
  • A singer who has promised something she cannot deliver and gets help from an unexpected source.

And more. If you’ve ever rooted for a witch, an evil fairy or a wolf, this anthology is for you.

Yom Tov Updates!

The complete collection is ready!

The Yom Tov collection has all been published but, as 2019 ends, there are some changes coming! The collection is already beginning to go wide. That means retailers beyond Amazon will have editions for you to buy. That includes Nook/B&N, Kobo, and iBooks among others.

Purim Fling has gone wide! This means it’s no longer part of Kindle Unlimited and has been added to Kobo, Nook/B&N. and other major retailers.

The Matzo Ball Billionaire will do the same at the end of December. You can preorder it now on Nook/B&N and Kobo.

The other two novelettes will go wide through 2020.

The Complete Collection is already on Amazon and will be there for about six months before it goes wide. I did this primarily so I could begin production on the audiobook. There is a paperback edition of the complete collection but you can only get that from me at events or, for locals, at The Artisan’s Exchange in Chelmsford, MA.
