Author Spotlight/Rocky Rochford Indie Writer

I bring to you today the very talented Indie Author Rocky Rochford. He is currently celebrating his newest release  Wait and Bleed. See it and buy it here

This collection of related shorts is written well, and if read on a dark stormy night will indeed give you the chills, make you lock the doors, check under the beds and in the closets, as well as turn on every light in the house while you arm yourself to the teeth with whatever you have available. Chillingly written. Meet Jack the likable psychotic. Yes, I said likable psychotic. Mr Rochford has created a bad psychotic character that somehow you find yourself liking, despite his despicable tendencies. The emotions I feel and felt for this character reminded me very much of how I felt about the  character Dexter , a once very popular series on premium TV. Well done Rocky. Very superb writing skills. Wait and Bleed

 

Here’s a bit of who my spotlight author is in his own words:

I am a Scuba Diving, Photo taking, Adventure Seeking, Sword Collecting, Writer & Marine Conservationist. I’m a handful of years into my twenties, but after living life on the road, going town to town before finally settling down, I’ve gained great insight into the world and her workings. From Day 1 I have been a Writer and a Writer I shall forever remain.
I like to consider myself to be a Student of Everything, and yet a Master of Nothing, who does not choose what he writes, but writes what chooses him, be it fantasy, crime, poetry, philosophy or even adventure. After all life is a journey we all get to experience, just like a good book.
Read more on his Amazon page. Link is above. This is an author you want to follow. I am not surprised to see that Wait and Bleed is quickly climbing the ranks in horror.
As well as Wait and Bleed  Mr. Rochford has written many other stories for your reading pleasures. His writing style is fluid and he really has a knack of getting his characters to creep around in the readers head …long after they have put the book down.
Hers more of his titles:

Deep Water Novels:

Phoenix Rises

London Calling


Rise of the Elohim Chronicles:

The Spirit of Iris
The Hour of Darkness
The Eye of Mares (Coming Soon)

Congratulations Rocky Rochford on yet another well written walk into the darkest and deepest recesses of a psychotic mind. I am a fan and will continue to be. May you continue to make all your writing dreams come true. You, my literary and cyber friend, shall go far for sure!
 May the monsters we writers create be the creatures of your nightmares…lol because that means we are doing it right!

BLURB:
Kerry O’Brien has a secret so terrible it burns inside her. All she wants is to be part of a normal family, but with a stepfather like Bill, that is impossible.

Set in the 1970s when secrets like this were only ever whispered about, Kerry somehow keeps her humour by pretending everything is fine. Then she meets biker Tommy, and he has his own secret; one that impacts on her.
Kerry’s secret becomes harder to keep and the tell-tell signs are harder to hide. Can she keep it together? Can Tommy and Kerry get it together?

Then the worst happens and Kerry’s secret is a secret no more.
‘As I walked over I knew he would take off his helmet and his hair would fall over his face. He would flick it back with his hand and I was excited with anticipation. I loved the way he looked.
I smiled and came towards him. He took off his helmet and it fell to his wrist like a basket handle, as his other hand flicked away his hair. Something inside pinged and that feeling I’d had for days came back with intensity.’

************************

What readers are saying:

“The story is gripping and interesting, the romance warm and simmering. I absolutely loved the ending, which gives the story an almost fairy tale-like feeling. All in all, it was a very enjoyable two hour read, and I whole heartedly recommend it to fans of the genre.”
S Anderson

“I really enjoyed this book and I was automatically drawn into the characters world, from the very first page. Tommy treats Kerry like a queen and it’s so refreshing to read a story where the man respects and truly loves the girl.”
Jenna Hodge

“The characters were so real and the story definitely so believable. These sort of secrets unfortunately still go on. Let’s hope others can find the strength, just like Kerry to come out the other side.”
Lindy-Lou

All awesome ‘AWE’thors in this collection are members of a great Indie writers group on Facebook. The book was published by Plaisted Publishing House, and I thank them for the great opportunity to be involved in a project that involved so many talented, proof readers, editors, writers and administration people. The group put together two anthologies of Dark and Light Holiday themed stories. My story ended up in the Dark Volume , as you can see by the photos above.

I have not yet read every story in its entirety , however I have read some and though I m not reviewing the book I will say this; It is chock full of some very good Dark Holiday shorts. The Light Volume also, is full of many great stories by authors from around  the globe.

Both books, The December Awethology: Dark Volume and the December Awethology: Light Volume  are available at most online bookstore platforms. The eBook copy is a free download and the print version is $6.00. I myself am the proud owner of every version of each book that I can find! They are just that good.

Here’s a bit of a blurb from my story Jingle Jars:

Sneak Peek of Jingle Jars by Jennifer Deese (short story from The December Awethology: Dark Volume by The #Awethors.)

***

Sid could sense the arrival of something. Then suddenly he began to make out a shape approaching in the distance through the open door.  As he strained to decipher what it was that was approaching he caught the scent of sulphur and rot. The odor grew stronger as the shape in the swirling snow drew closer. Sid felt his heart quicken as his senses told him something about this was all wrong. As he watched, frozen in place, he saw that the quickly approaching figure was adorned in what looked to be a very tattered and dirty Santa Claus outfit. “What the hell!”, Sid thought as the figure stepped onto the porch and stood face to face with him. The stink was even more intense and the man’s eyes were obsidian black. Sid stepped back as the man came through the door shutting it behind him. As the door shut the noise from the jingling jars abruptly stopped.

Sid knew he was in the presence of something sinister, dark and evil, and in a rare moment of honest introspection he almost wished things had been different in his life, normal even. He watched, frozen in place as the Santa clad demon walked to the wall of jars. With his heart pounding Sid asked, “”Who are you.” Smiling demonically, the visitor ran his dirty clawed fingers along the jars, causing them to jingle eerily in the dead silence. Sid could feel the noise deep in his brain, it caused a blinding pain that brought him to his knees next to the dead fire. He felt  his body wanting to give in, wanting to shroud him in the promise of death, but he wanted to live! As the thought of asking for redemption ran across his mind the demon turned toward him and whispered, “Tssk Tssk, my loyal human, I’m here to show to you your jars, your jingling jars.” ***
