Good morning and welcome to Friday Feelings. This month, we’re focusing on paranormal books. There will be a lot of visitors making an appearance but on Sundays and Tuesdays, this blog will be all about things that go bump in the night!
Ghosts, ghouls, demons, you name it and I find it fascinating. Anything that can’t be proven becomes a story in my head, a way to explain those mysterious bumps in the night or things moving when no one is near them. Oh, I’ve heard all the explanations about how it could be cars driving past or a minor earthquake—good luck proving the second one to me. I can feel earthquakes, having grown up in an area where they abound.
Welcome Cyn Ley to the blog today. She’s here, talking about her collection, Encounters: Tales Recounted and Reborn…
These are the best of the tales—some as they were originally published, some expanded and reimagined. Ranging from social satire to the paranormal, from fight to flight to friendship, these stories touch base on the encounters of the human experience.
Benefits –A new home is all about location. And what you dig up.
Food Chain— Wildlife documentarians Owen and Nate are in search of a new challenge. But sometimes the largest challenges turn out to be very small.
The Logo Men— What if the Seven Deadly Sins walked into a bar, and nobody noticed?
Rinse, Repeat— All the days are the same now. All because of one date.
Perfect— Sometimes life is as transformative, and as simple, as a holiday gingerbread cookie.
The Tin Foil Hat Society — It’s time for the millennial alien visitation! What could possibly go wrong?
…and other tales of wonder and terror.
About Cyn Ley
A top reviewed author on Amazon, Cyn takes much of her inspiration from the part of the beautiful Pacific Northwest she calls home, where fire (the active volcanos) and water (the many rivers and the Pacific Ocean) actually do mix. Among her many interests are history, embroidery, folklore, and things that are generally rather strange.
The best of her earlier writings (2014-2016) were revised and given new life in the collection Encounters Tales Recounted and Reborn, published in spring 2017. A number of them had made previous appearances in various Solstice seasonal anthologies and smaller collections. This was followed in early fall with an anthology of all new stories, most of them paranormal, entitled The Ossuary Playground and Other Unexpected Tales. Shortly after, the story Plot Twist found its way into the annual Solstice fright fest anthology Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Volume 5. It is now available as a stand-alone story on Kindle.
Pink Flamingos & Other Follies is her latest anthology, released in March 2018. It is a quirky, lighthearted collection, and includes the first installment of a new series, “It’s A Mystery.”
In addition to her writings, she was named the 6th top book editor in the 2016 Predators & Editors poll, and advanced to 4th place in 2017.
All of Ms. Ley’s titles are available on Amazon.com.
