I absolutely love this time of year, the scents, the sights, the colors, all of it! Weather is changing, comfort food becomes popular again, my favorite holidays are rolling towards me, there is movement, excitement and fun on the horizon.
Halloween is on the rise and so is the witch in me. My house is decorated, my sweet, funny son-in-law will be dressing as the grim reaper to frighten all the kiddies. My whole front yard has become a tombstone, rat, spider, ghoul and skeleton… Continue

As some of you already know, I'm a YA fantasy author and am currently in the middle of writing a series of books for young adults (there will be at least 5 books in the series before I'm finished).

If you'd like to see more info about me or my books, google MJ Allaire or visit my website, www. mjallaire. com.

It was a dark and stormy night and hunger gripped my soul like a ravenous dog. Sounds drifted by from the darkened town below; noises of discordant jazz and decadence. I viewed the dimming light from my perch on the hill crest. Slowly I descended across the wet grass, down the embankment and toward what waited on deserted streets.
I resisted the ghost of lust, the spirit of my starvation for the sake of my damned soul but no longer for the hunger was upon me as strongly as any demon or… Continue

As many of you already know, I'm self-published and currently have three books "out there". I posted this on my good friend and book reviewer Geri Ahearn's blog a little while ago...
Writing your book is definitely the easy part of an author's journey... once you have the book in your hands, getting it out to the readers, especially if you're self-published, is probably the biggest challenge that we as authors have never really thought about (I know I DEFINITELY… Continue

"You don't get harmony when everybody sings the same note."
A few weekends ago, hubby and I yanked out the guitars, plugged in the vintage amps and took the digital recording equipment out for a spin. One of the classic songs we worked on is a long-time favorite: "Wild Horses" by the Rolling Stones. I memorized this tune back at the tender age of nineteen *gasp!* and to this day relish the intricate chord changes and plaintive lyrics. Love it, love it, love it…… Continue

Buddy learns the meaning of scared and a lesson in humility in the final chapter of how our young man became a believer in the supernatural forces of the world he lived in.
“Ooh, I’m scared for Buddy, Grandpa,” Sissy stated rubbing her arms to soothe the goose bumps appearing on her skin.
“I don’t blame you one bit Sissy, me too,” Tom replied as he bit into another cookie.
Mrs. Hatcher hugged her great granddaughter close. “Don’t you worry sweet girl, there’s more to Buddy… Continue

I’m very happy to announce that the Suspense line of The Wild Rose Press is starting a new series called “Men in Uniform.”
It can be any kind of uniform, as in a position of power – not a bus driver. LOL! ;) So think police officer, Navy, Marines, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard and such. The heat levels are from Sweet to Hot and plots are open to your imagination.
Why am I telling you all this?? Well, the Sr. Editor of the Romantic Suspense line picked me to write the Free Read… Continue

I love Halloween. Why? Mainly, I suppose, because of the season's ambiance. The air is getting cooler, the nights come faster, and the spirits abound.
During these long, lovely evenings, I love to watch the silvered clouds float across a full moon. The lighting inspires the artist and writer in me. I imagine all types of creatures prowling just beyond my line of vision. Will they attack me? Or embrace me? I prefer the last one. To feel ghostly arms wrapped about me in a loving… Continue
