Did the movie The Birds  frighten you? I made my daddy put the parakeet in the garage. The movie still scares the bejesus.  This week celebrate Halloween, the movie and Alfred Hitchcock.

Alfred Hitchcock: A Life in Darkness and Lightby Patrick McGilligan. Save 87% STEAL! at $2.99. 
The definitive biography of the Master of Suspense and the most widely recognized film director of all time.

In a career that spanned six decades and produced more than 60 films – including The 39 Steps, Vertigo, Psycho, and The Birds – Alfred Hitchcock set new standards for cinematic invention and storytelling. Acclaimed biographer Patrick McGilligan re-examines his life and extraordinary work, challenging perceptions of Hitchcock as the “macabre Englishman” and sexual obsessive, and reveals instead the ingenious craftsman, trickster, provocateur, and romantic.

With insights into his relationships with Hollywood legends – such as Cary Grant, James Stewart, Ingrid Bergman, and Grace Kelly – as well as his 54-year marriage to Alma Reville and his inspirations in the thriller genre, the book is full of the same dark humor, cliffhanger suspense, and revelations that are synonymous with one of the most famous and misunderstood figures in cinema.

Laura. Novela by Liana Acero de la Cuesta. $6.99 from
If you can read Spanish, this book will reward you in every way. Take the best in psychological novels and erotic novels, and you will recreate “Laura”. Great writing, it is as revolutionary in the contemporary Spanish literature as “Nada” de Carmen Laforet was in its time. It is best to compare it to “El túnel” de Ernesto Sábato, but it has many more levels of interpretation than that novel. 

Blood of the Dark Moonby Adrianne Brennan. STEAL! The paperback is $2.10 as Freya’s Bower Halloween Pick. The E book is $5.95 – buy the paperback!

Amanda, graduate student and devoted follower of the Greek god Apollo, is intrigued when she meets Jesse, a handsome young scholar who shares her love of both the classics and the occult. He quickly sparks her interest-and ignites a dark flame of passion between them. Together, they embark on a shadowy path that leads Amanda straight into Jesse’s scintillating underworld of vampires, magick, and secret societies. Little does Amanda know she is about to fulfil a legacy that began over thirty years ago and ended in tragedy. Can she learn the truth about her identity in time to help those whom she has grown to care about and find happiness in her new life with Jesse? Blood of the Dark Moon combines the classic eroticism of vampires with a touch of modern sensual romance and occult intrigue.

Ivory Joe by Martyn Burke. $4.99 from
First published by Bantam Books and hailed by critics, this is the rollicking love story of Leo and Tina Klein in 1950s New York. He is a charming rogue with ties to the mob. She is a leftist activist and manager of “Ivory Joe” Coulter, a heart-busting black musician. Burke weaves a deft plot involving the attempted theft of one of Joe’s songs, to give us a joyous tale of energy and soul.  A STEAL!

Carved in Darkness (A Sabrina Vaughn Novel) by Maegan Beaumont. STEAL! Save 73%.
Fifteen years ago, a psychotic killer abducted seventeen-year-old Melissa Walker. For 83 days she was raped, tortured, and then left for dead in a deserted churchyard . . . but she was still alive.

Melissa begins a new life as homicide inspector Sabrina Vaughn. With a new face and a new name, it’s her job to hunt down murderers—a job she does very well.

But when Michael O’Shea, a childhood acquaintance with a suspicious past, suddenly finds her, he brings to life the nightmare Sabrina has long since buried.

Believing his sister was recently murdered by the same monster who attacked Sabrina, Michael is dead set on getting his revenge—using Sabrina as bait.

Daisy (Regency Love Series)  by Marion Chesney as M. C. Beaton. STEAL! Save 67% on the E Book from a queen of romance. 

Daisy Jenkins never expected to be anything more than a trespasser on the idyllic lawns of Marsden Castle. Then suddenly she was admitted into the seemingly magic circle of the Earl and Countess of Nottenstone, where she awaited the arrival of the notorious Lord Chatterton; her father – a stranger whose very name was foreign to her. She was suddenly Daisy Chatterton, surrounded by aristocratic sharks who seemed to both court as well as mock her. And why did the elegant Duke of Oxenden offer his protection to this newcomer who made him laugh at the very word “love'”? She was determined to show them all! She’d prove there was such a thing as true love, no matter how hard, or how far she had to search to find it!

ABOUT THE SERIES In this whirlwind series, Marion Chesney brings us spirited, independent women who are at once bewitching, beguiling and determined to have their say and make their mark on both their world and the world at large, be it within their social circle or extending beyond. With their arms wide open, these women are absolutely original and unforgettable as are the tales in which they are featured. Here is life in all of its folly and foibles in a dizzying place where dreams are both shattered and made.
