October Horror New Releases

These are the horror new releases for October.

What I'm excited about: Well, Doc Mortis, of course. The Invisible Fiends series is one of my favourites, so I can't wait to see what horrors this next one has in store. Ashes is also promising to be brilliant, and I'm intrigued at the concept behind Alex Van Helsing, so I can't wait to get my claws on a copy!

  1. Great post here, Madame Harkness. Halloween is a time to celebrate! Screw Christmas; we want blood! Ha ha ha!
    Disclaimer :No offense to anyone who enjoys X-mas.

    I don't know if I should leave this comment here or on your Goodreads but you can delete this anyway. I'm not flaking out on my SPIRIT WEEK book, I'm doing something with it, experimenting if you will. Actually, the entire series. Halloween is coming up and what I want to put in your hands is going to be hot. I think you're going to love it... "IF" I can pull it off.

    I will keep you posted!^_^

  2. I love the blue cover of this new book you reviewed! Looks great! And great review (as usual), Ms. Harkness xoxo

  3. Can't wait to read it, experimenting sounds good! Please keep me updated!

  4. Hi! Thank you, Ms. Harkness! I will!
