Pleasure on the Prairie

Our September release is a little different from our usual fare!

Pleasure on the Prairie – The Wilder Side of Laura Ingalls Wilder

We are proud to announce our first narrative non-fiction book, Pleasure on the Prairie: The Wilder Side of Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Laura Ingalls Wilder is fondly known for her Little House on the Prairie books where she told stories about growing up in the latter half of the 19th century. The last book in the series recounted the first four years of her marriage to Almanzo Wilder and was only discovered and published many years later.

Laura did not choose to write about the years when she and Almanzo ran the Rocky Ridge Health Sanitarium. But now the story can be told.

What few people know about Laura and Almanzo Wilder is that after they built their home, Rocky Ridge Farm, they also built a health sanitarium of the kind so popular around the turn of the century…

COVER REVEAL FOR THE CLIFFHOUSE HAUNTING!!

At long last, our cover for The Cliffhouse Haunting is ready to be revealed. We love it, and would like to thank our cover design artist, Kealan Patrick Burke, for perfectly capturing the SPIRIT of our book!

When the Blue Lady Walks…

Since 1887, Cliffhouse Lodge has been famous for its luxurious accommodations, fine dining… and its ghosts. Overlooking Blue Lady Lake, nestled among tall pines, Cliffhouse has just been renovated by its owners, Teddy and Adam Bellamy, and their daughter, Sara.

Cliffhouse has not always been a place of rest and respite, though. Over the years it has served many vices, from rum-running to prostitution – and although the cat houses have been replaced by a miniature golf course and carousel, Cliffhouse retains its dark history; darkest during the Roaring Twenties, when a serial killer called the Bodice Ripper terrorized the town, and a phantom, the Blue Lady, was…

It works if you work it…

Tamara Thorne:

Alistair Cross spills some of our secrets…

Originally posted on Cross Talk:

When I joined forces with Tamara Thorne in 2012, people warned me that collaborations are difficult and often don’t work out. Tamara no doubt received the same warnings and worse – she was, after all, an already-established novelist with over a dozen books under her belt. Undoubtedly, there was some nail-biting going on behind the scenes… but we knew there was no need to worry.

Tamara and I had both collaborated previous to meeting each other, so this isn’t new territory for us. We both come from a place of professionalism; ours is a strict tantrum-free work zone with a rigidly enforced no-drama policy. It helps, of course, that neither of us engages in drama to begin with.

We stuck together, ignored all advice, and extracted any meddlers with prompt micro-surgical precision. For two years, we’ve had our noses to the grindstone, working eight-plus hour days, six and sometimes seven…

They say when the Blue Lady walks, death walks with her…

Cliffhouse Lodge has been the center of the little town of Cliffside in the San Bernardino Mountains of southern California since it was built in 1887. Overlooking Blue Lady Lake, Cliffhouse was built by the Bellamy family and has been newly renovated by owners Teddy and Adam Baxter-Bellamy and their daughter, Sara.

In the 1880s, Cliffhouse served as a restaurant, hotel, cathouse, theater and tavern, and during Prohibition became a hangout for rum runners. Later, its hot springs attracted the wealthy; even presidents have stayed there.

Today, the lodge is famous for…

NIGHT MOVES is available now!

Available on Amazon for your screaming pleasure…

Guess what is available! Yup…

What Walks the Halls of Ravencrest?

Belinda Moorland is locked in a nightmare where reality and the supernatural collide. Trapped in Ravencrest’s east wing, she has encountered three gruesome nuns who gibber and bleed as they follow her down the darkened hallways. And what about the spectral little girl from another era? Is she Belinda’s friend, or just another monster?

In Episode 5 of The Ghosts of Ravencrest, the tension mounts as the territories of the living and the dead blur together to create a miasma of terror and dread.

People Are Talking About The Ghosts of Ravencrest

The Ghosts of Ravencrest is riveting. The characters are wonderful, the subplots are perfect, and the setting is stunning and well-researched. This series is like a roller coaster that goes up and up – the Mannings are literary gold.”

Tamara Thorne:

Our cover for Night Moves, the fifth installment of The Ghosts of Ravencrest.

Originally posted on Cross Talk:

At long last, we have settled on the final cover art for The Ghosts of Ravencrest’s 5th installment, Night Moves. I know I said I wanted something with lots of red for this installment, but as soon as I saw the completed version of this one, I knew it was the right cover. I love it, and I am excited to announce that Night Moves will be available to buy later this week.

Walking Fine Lines… and Writing Them, Too

Tamara Thorne:

My collaborator’s journey…

Originally posted on Cross Talk:

frustrated-writer-2

Even as a kid, I loved writing and spent hours composing poems, song lyrics, and scribbling out short stories. As I grew older, my interest in the craft continued to build, but none of these formats gave me the room I needed. For me, writing novels was the next logical step. Between 1997 and 2005, I made countless starts on would-be cliffhangers, murder mysteries, and nail-biting tales of terror. But, as it turns out, writing a book is a lot more grueling and complicated than the masters make it out to be, and none of these early unfinished efforts survived outside of my notebooks.

Then in 2005, after one of those rare life-changing revelations everyone talks about, I finally decided I was going to do this writing thing… and I wasn’t taking no for an answer. It helped that, for the first time, I had a solid story line that…

As planned, we finished off Night Moves, the 5th installment of The Ghosts of Ravencrest. We wrapped up the final scene last night and during the next week or so, we’ll be doing final edits and deciding on cover art. The final product should be out by the end of January.

We received confirmation this morning from New York Times bestseller, Kevin O’Brien, for an appearance on Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE!A few weeks ago, I read his novel, Make Them Cry, and I dug it so much I hunted the poor guy down to tell him. I’ve since started reading another novel of his called Unspeakable. It, too, creeps me out in the yummiest of ways. I’m stoked to have him as a guest on Haunted Nights LIVE! and if you haven’t check him out yet, do it. Kevin will be our guest on May 7th.
