“I know always that I am an outsider; a stranger in this century and among those who are still men.”
H.P. Lovecraft, The Outsider

Her footsteps echoed through the empty halls as she walked with false confidence, towards the meeting place. The wind whistling around her as it came through the abandoned high schools windows.

She had graduated from the very same high school fifteen years earlier when it was beautiful and relatively new. Being back raised memories in her she would rather forget but she wasn’t able to. She knew it was a bad idea to come back but she had no choice.

He had forced her to go back there, he knew what it would do to her but he did it anyway. The blood stained floor echoed the horrific memories that replayed in her head.

As she neared the gym her stomach threatened to empty its meagre contents as she recalled the screams she heard when she was in there. The scars from that day began to throb and became sore, almost like they feared of being reopened.

She was livid and scared. He had brought her to the location of what should have been the best day of her life but she became the worst when three of her fellow high school students began shooting out of anger because they were not able to graduate.

She had been shot twice; both gunshot wounds barely missed her major blood vessels. She was lucky but two hundred others were not so lucky. A mixture of parents, teachers, students and past graduates had lost their lives, another hundred or so were wounded and scared.

Something felt wrong to her. Why would he lure her there? Why would he use her daughter as leverage to bring her back to the now derelict town and the heart of the town’s demise?

She pushed open the heavy doors and came face to face with another horrific sight. Laid on the floor was the broken form of the man she was there to meet. She quickly, quietly walked towards the man who had tormented her for years.

She reached down and checked his pulse, he was cold and wet. Bringing her fingers to her face she could see the red sticky liquid that coated them. “Eww!” She groaned as she wiped it on her leg.

She looked around and saw the dried red puddles. Another reminder of that horrific day that was so vivid in her mind.

No one had entered the school since the criminal investigation had ended. No one cleaned up. No one wanted to see the blood.

The gym was suddenly filled with the haunting score from the original Friday 13th. She jumped, filled with panic.

She fiddled and pulled out the cell phone. The screen showed her best friends face. Her best friend had stayed at her house in case her little girl returned home.

Clicking accept she was welcomed by the calming tones of her friend.

“Jodie, she’s here, she’s home, she’s safe.”

“What? Really? She’s home?” Jodie gasped her voice shaky.

“Yeah? Is he there? Get out of there. It’s a trap.” Her friends chanted, fear thick in her voice. “I’ll call the cops and call you back.” She exclaimed and the line went dead.

“Jodie!” Called a voice, deep, chesty and gravelly. Chill travelled down her spine, Goose bumps spread over her blemish free skin. “Jodie, you came.” It whispered.

She could not pin point where it came from. It seemed to echo around her. “You don’t remember me, do you?” The voice teased. Her breath hitched. Her hands shaking as she stuffed it back in her pocket. “I’m not surprised, you were always too busy.”

She looked around but she could barely see. Jake, her little girl’s dad, lay dead at her feet at the only part of the room with light. Everywhere else was pitch black.

She reached for her phone and with shaky hands. She fumbled to unlock it, to switch on the flashlight app and cursed as she, in her panic, put her lock code in wrong and locked her phone, she couldn’t access anything. “Fuck!” She screamed in frustration.

“Now, now, now Jodie, that’s not very lady like.” The low echoed around the hall.

“Who…”

“You were always perfect. You were always so lucky. Everyone thought you were perfect. They know nothing. Even now, around others, your act perfect but alone you are evil.” Came a whisper from right behind her.

She suddenly felt like she was in the silence of the lambs where she couldn’t she but the other person can and it unsettled.

“Just answer my question, who are you?” She whispered back, her voice shaking with fear.

“You already know! You already know!”

She was shaking with fear as the panic wrapped its cold hand around her heart. “No, I don’t!” She spat back.

“Yes you do.” His voice was louder and filled with anger.

She jumped as she felt a cold wet hand wrap around her throat that snaked around her neck and squeezed, lifting her off the ground.

Her legs kicked as he moved her into the beam of light and above her ex’s body showing his face. As she was gasping for breath her eyes widened in recognition as her attackers face became illuminated by the beam. “Fuck.” She muttered while struggling for breath.

As she started to lose consciousness she came to face to face with the man she thought was dead, the man she thought was long gone; the man who was her first love and the man responsible for the school shooting that wounded her. She remembered watching him shoot himself and dying right in front of her.

It did not make any sense it confused her. Her world turned black as she lost consciousness as he restricted her breathing, she wondered if it was the end as everything turned black.

This tale is pulling me closer to it and maybe, just maybe, turn into something more.

Let me know what you think.

Happy Writing

Hello guys.

I’ve been teasing you with a big announcement for a few weeks but I wanted to have the contracts signed and sent before I told you all.

Four weeks ago I submitted two novels to my publisher for her to look at which was Spilt Blood sequel, Dark side of Humanity and Twisted Coven, book one of the White Witch Trilogy. I waited on tenterhooks to see what she thought and I was bowled over when she told me she wanted the ‘Dark side of humanity’ and the following two of the series. She also wanted the entire of the White Witch trilogy. I was shocked and very happy. Added to that two anthologies that I working one, one will be released later this year and the other will be out next year.

I was bowled over that she wanted the entire of both series. She saw past me dyslexia and has the faith in me that I can write books that others will be interested in reading.

The dates for the releases are as bellows but are both subject to change.

Dark Side of Humanity:

Twisted Coven:

There are a few events coming up that showcase not only my work but the work of others.

Indie Authors Appreciation Week 2016

Aurelia Fray is the naughty Hyde side of a rather ordinary woman. Whenever her mistress lets her out to play, there are sure to be tales worth telling. She lives and works in London, England, enjoys all things artistic and spends most of her time buried in books or paint.

Join us as we celebrate the much-anticipated release of book two, The Devil’s Fire, in The Devil’s Gate Trilogy.

Book one, The Devil’s Gate, was released in April, 2015 and quickly rose on amazon top one hundred in erotic mystery where it has remained for the past five months.

With this next installment we re-join the cast of TDG as Abigail returns home after dealing with a heartbreaking loss in her life.

Official Blurb:

Seeking refuge, Abigail Watson returns home to mend a broken heart, abandoning the city that she has grown to love and the job she worked hard for years to attain.

Life allows for distraction, but it can’t bury the past.

Jack Landon has left an indelible mark on her.

A painful scar, a stolen kiss, a memory of what once was, or could be.

Jack is all of these things, and more. The haunting memories begin to consume her with an unbridled passion.

His domination is absolute. Her submission begs for release.

Their lustful needs could destroy everything around them, turning flame to ash, friend to enemy, love to hate.

Where there’s smoke…you will find the Devil’s Fire.

Grab your copy today at the sale price, it will go back to regular price soon.

Hello guys

I’ve been quiet of late because I’ve been working on anthology submissions and edits on Dirty Little secrets.

I’ve had a submission accepted into an anthology due for release later this year.

promo poster 1

I can’t wait to show more with you and I’m going to be doing a few teasers on the books I’m working on at the moment.

Dirty Little Secret follows on from Spilt Blood, book one in the Poisoned By Blood series. CLICK HERE TO GET IT!

In book two Joslyn deals with the fall out of the events of book one along with figuring out who her new best friend really is. The revelation has several negative effects that put both her friend and family at risk. She’s also dealing with her lust and pull towards her hot mentor as she discovers a possible reason towards how she’s fall for him so quickly.

Hell Hath No Fury is my other current work in progress.

It follows the tale of Gavin, a young man who buys an old abandoned mansion after making a lot of money and as they start to rebuild the mansion they find the remains of the only missing girl in town. He starts the hunt into her killer as he realised his childhood crush on the missing girl hasn’t died and the girl is pissed. YYes i need to work on the blurb. Its just to give you a little idea.

I can’t wait to show you covers on all three and I’m waiting to find out if my second submission has been accepted.

Will keep you in the loop.

Happy Sunday

Simone

Hello guys

Here’s the second poem I promised you.

For my best friend

You’re there when I need you

You’re t always a text away

You’re always a sounding board

You’re never not reachable

I’ll always be there for you

I’ll always be a call away

I’ll never turn you away

I’ll never lie to you

Two sides of the same coin

Similar yet different

So much in common

Yet the odd thing different

Never worry I’m always there

Never worry I’m at your side

Never worry you’re important to me

Never worry you’re a priority

You know who you are

This is for you

Stay Strong

Let me know what you think.

Happy writing

Simone

Hi Readers

Here’s another prose for you to get your teeth into.

Horror is the dark side of humanity

A way of watching things that scare us

Watching horrors in a safe and warm environment.

Tales of ghosts tormenting, haunting, possessing

Words to chill us to the bone

Films that you shouldn’t watch alone

Horror is the serial killer that’s never caught

Or it’s the one that was but ate his victims

A tale of bloody death, distraction and hate

It’s the ghost or demon possessing something innocent

Possessing a doll, child or virtuous woman

Tales of painful deaths that poison life

From the chilling tale of the exorcist

To the mildly humours Scream

People like the different change from a time gone by

Writing horror is a blessing  and it shows

Creating chilling worlds gives me a natural high

Writing dark tales of murder make me smile

Fiction is sometime adapted from reality

Tales from those around others who have lived through it

Survivors of such unseen horrors

Stick around to read more from my writing archive and over active mind. There is so much more to come.

Happy writing

Simone

Hello readers,

Here’s a little poem to help your Sunday pass by quicker.

Writing is my escape

A manner of leaving my life

A way of experiencing something different

My muse is anything that’s around me

A drive on the motorway

A visit to a museum

I live in a city over two thousand years old

I have an odd, strange life

I know things that would make your toes curl

The fiction that others escape into

The tales of others life of hardship

The different experiences of another person

Characters that entice you into their life

Placed you may never have been

Times gone by where life was different

Waiting in the pages of a book

Hiding in the words

Are people and places I want to immerse myself in

I enjoy giving life to others

I love reading the feedback of others

I love seeing book on sale

Fiction is a wonderful thing

It’s a manner of escape and delving into

Writing is an art

I love writing

I don’t have plans to stop

Stick around and you’ll be entertained

More prose and shorts to come

Happy writing

Simone
