Trick or Treat!

Since Halloween is coming up, I decided to offer you, my devoted readers, a little trick or treat.  I wrote Kiss of Death: a YA paranormal short story about Kate, who goes to an out of control teenage Halloween party.  She meets a handsome young man who becomes her savior at the party, she reveals a secret she's been hiding for years and there may or may not be a curse and kissing involved.  Anyway, since the themes in the story are just right for this time of year, I decided to offer it as an Amazon ebook for the month of October.  Since I have amazing friends and connections, it also has this awesome cover by Sean Ashby.  I'm really pleased with it.  Notice that menacing person silhouetted by the title?  What's his deal?  You'll have to read to find out.  I hope you will.  If you don't, the trick's on me but that's just par for the course at this time of year.  
PS.  S.J. Lomas is my YA writing pen name.   


  1. What a cool idea! It never even occurred to me to put a short story/book on Amazon for a special related month. Will you be doing this again for Valentines :) Your story sounds intriguing, and you surely do have awesome friends - that cover is AMAZING!

  2. Thanks Susanna. I was really thrilled with the cover too. (Thank you, Sean!!!!)
    This was a story I had done recently and felt like it deserved to be read, should anyone care to read it. If you do read it, I'd love if you could take a moment to give it an honest Amazon review. If not, I won't hold it against you. :)

  3. Read it, enjoyed it a great deal, reviewed it, in that order! Had to review it on the UK Amazon site, but at least I got to be the first!


    For so wonderfully and kindly joining my group and being so brill on it, this was the least I could do in return. x

  4. John, you are so sweet. I don't know what's more exciting, the fact that you actually enjoyed the story or that you're the first person to refer to me as 'brill'. (Love that!)
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
