Resurrection 
The Demon Series Part 3

Excerpt

“Is that it?” Cole stood in the bedroom doorway.
Devyn placed her grandmother’s antique doll in the rocking chair by the bed. “That’s it. All unpacked.” She straightened, giving her back a rub.
“Here, let me.” Cole wrapped his arms around her waist and gave her neck a kiss.
She smirked. “How is that helping my back?”
“I’m only getting started.” He kissed her neck again.
“Maybe after you take a shower.”
“Is that your way of telling me I stink?”
Smiling, she twisted to face him and patted him on the cheek. “Shower.”
He peeled his shirt off and walked into the washroom.
“Man, it’s cold in here.” She checked the air conditioning. “Off? Hmm…Hey, Cole, does it feel cold in here to you?” She turned back to the room. The doll’s head was now facing her. “That’s weird. I could have sworn it was…” She shrugged and headed for the door. Stopping in the doorway, she swung back. The doll now sat in the middle of the bed. “What the…?”
She went back to the bed and picked up the doll. “How did you get there?” She set it back on the rocking chair and headed for the door. Creaking came from behind her, and she spun around. The chair was rocking on its own. “Cole?” She rushed into the washroom.
“You say something?” Cole poked his head out from behind the shower curtain.
“The chair, it—” she turned to the rocker, but it was perfectly still. “Would you…like me to fix you a drink?”
“How about some of that white wine we picked up today. It should go great with the roast chicken and potato salad.”
“You read my mind.” She forced a smile and went down into the kitchen. “Starting to imagine things. You’re working too hard, Devyn. I think it’s about time you relaxed with a nice big glass of wine.” She poured herself a glass and took a gulp. “Ah, that hits the spot.” She set the glass to the left of the sink and opened the fridge. Taking the potato salad out, she then got the plates out of the cupboard. The glass of wine was now sitting on the right side of the sink. “I put it on the left. I know I did.” She took another drink, and then set it once again on the left side of the sink.
“You almost done? I’ve got the chicken warming in the oven, and I don’t want to take it out if you’re not coming.”
“I’ll be down in a minute.”
“Okay, I’m dishing up the food now.” She poured him a glass of wine and took the chicken out of the oven. Putting the food out on the plates, she then reached for her wine. The glass was not in the kitchen. She opened the fridge. “Nope, not in there.” She closed the door. “This is ridiculous. I know I didn’t carry it out of the kitchen. I didn’t leave the kitchen.” She wandered the ground floor, but the glass of wine was no where to be found. “What the hell?” Coming back into the kitchen, she pulled up.
        There on the counter was her glass of wine.

Resurrection: The Demon Series Part 3

* NEW RELEASE *

Resurrection: The Legacy of Starke House
The Demon Series Part 3


When Cole Pearson finds a great deal on a house, he can’t believe his luck. A new job, a new town, a new house…life couldn’t be better. His wife, Devyn, however, thinks it’s too good to be true.

No sooner than they move in, than objects begin to move from where they were placed, and Devyn quickly realizes the reason the price was so reasonable. Getting a dog to keep Devyn company, while he is out of the house, seems the answer to Devyn’s problem, or so Cole believes. Only the dog, like Devyn, doesn’t want to go in the house, and Devyn wants to leave.

But the house, as Cole is about to discover, is the least of their problems. And what lies ahead…in the dark…in the basement…is something Cole never expected.

Beyond the Red Door Review




Diana Coyle ~ Night Owl Reviews

5 Stars

In this second book in the Red Door series, we find teenager Jesse Miller deciding to throw a party at the Starke house for his friends. The day he picks turns out to be the fiftieth anniversary to when teenager Max Jensen entered the house. Jesse wants to do a ritual to raise the dead to entertain his friends and fellow classmates while everyone is at the party. The only problem is things don’t go as well as he anticipates. James has a very creative imagination and exceeds at truly scaring the wits out of readers. Details are so vivid and characters are so humanistic that you can see everything play out before you while you’re reading along. 
My heart was slamming in my chest when Jesse performed the ritual and I started to see that things were quickly getting out of control. I don’t know what would possess anyone to even want to enter the Starke house considering how many murders happened in that house, but Jesse definitely got in way over his head on this little prank he pulled on his friends and classmates. If you’re looking for an author to scare the wits out of you without having to leave your house to go to a theme park or attraction, then James is definitely the horror author to look into. I highly recommend this story to other readers and hope James is penning more stories as I write this review.

Beyond the Red Door Excerpt

Beyond the Red Door
The Demon Series Part 2

Excerpt

Fairfield, California, 2012
Taylor stood before the old house.
Jesse grinned. “So, what do you think?”
She took a step closer. Crossing her arms, she looked up at the building. “What did you call this place again?”
“The Starke house.”
“And you say some serial killer lived here over fifty years ago?”
“Yep.”
“And he buried twelve boys in his basement?”
“You can check for yourself, if you don’t believe me.”
She studied him, her blonde hair falling down into her eyes. “I just might do that, Mr. Miller.”
Jesse’s grin widened. “You haven’t heard all of it.”
“You’re telling me there’s more to this story?”
“You have no idea.”
“Well?”
Lowering his voice, he leaned in. “It’s been said, Starke killed a teen in this house, in 1962.”
“Didn’t you say he was executed, in 1956?”
“Uh-huh.”
“Let me guess. His ghost rose up from Hell and slayed him.”
He shrugged. “To be honest, I think it was the demon.”
Taylor’s brow furrowed.
“I read Starke made a deal to raise his little brother from the dead—if he sacrificed thirteen boys to a demon.”
“Wait, if there was some sort of pact with a demon to raise Starke’s little brother, then when this teen—”
“Max Jensen.”
She paused. “If Max Jensen was killed by this demon, as you say, wouldn’t that have completed the pact?”
“Now that you mention it, there were stories of a five-year-old kid found wandering the streets, that same night. The kid was the spitting image of Starke’s little brother.”
Again, her brow furrowed. “But why Max? Surely, people have gone into the cellar before that day.”
“A bag, a knife, and a chip of wood were found just inside the door. The knife had blood on it. They think he was trying to take a piece of the door and cut himself.”
“And he bled on the ground.” She nodded. “You’re not saying you actually believe any of this.”
The corner of Jesse’s mouth curled. “You want to know what happened to the little kid, don’t you.”
“I never said…” She pursed her lips. “Okay, what happened to him?”
“He was adopted by the people who found him. Wasn’t long after that they moved. From time to time, for years after, a reporter would track him down and dredge the whole Starke thing up, to make a fast buck. But, after some time, he dropped off the map.”
“So, as far as you can tell, he’s just some regular Joe.” She hesitated. “What I don’t get is why Max was down there in the first place? What was he doing trying to take a piece of the door?”
“My best guess? Someone bullied him into it.”
“You’re serious.”
“What can I say? Things never change, it seems.” He sighed. “But, like I said, check it out for yourself, if you don’t believe me.”
