CREED

Creed final

About the Book

Three went in. Three came out. None even a shadow of who they once were.

When their car breaks down, Dee, her boyfriend Luke, and his brother Mike walk through a winter storm to take refuge in a nearby town called Purity Springs. When they arrive, the emergency sirens are blaring and the small farming town seems abandoned. With no other shelter, they spend the night in an empty house.

But they soon discover that not everything in Purity Springs is as it seems. When the town’s inhabitants suddenly appear the next morning, Dee, Luke, and Mike find themselves at the mercy of the charismatic leader, Elijah Hawkins, who plans to make Dee his new wife. Elijah’s son, Joseph, offers to help them escape . . . but the price of his help may be more than Dee and her friends can bear

Review

If you are a lover of horror, this book is for you. But I hope you take my advice and don’t read it for a bedtime story! Just imagine … three went in and three came out, and see how many blind corners you can turn getting to the end! I truly have no idea how anyone can dig into the depths of pure evil and write such a novel. The situation is unspeakable, the characters are indescribable and the writing is absolute brilliance.

What happens in Purity Springs is the stuff of living nightmares and I hope you’ll get your copy and tell me how you feel once you’ve read Creed by Trisha Leaver and Lindsey Currie.

I wish I could rate this higher than five, but five blistering hot cups of the blackest coffee I have available to Creed!

Probing into the events on the night of Jimmy’s death, Bee hears strange voices. The voices lead her to a blood-splattered room, a terrifying threat, and a deadly trap. Is Bee on the trail of her brother’s murderer, or is she entangled in a totally different and much more diabolical plot?

~ INTERVIEW ~

 It is my pleasure to welcome Lisa Cronkhite, author of Deep in the Meadows, to Room With Books.

 What do you do when you are not writing?

I spend time with my husband and kids. Watch movies, ID Network, things like that. I also spend a lot of time with my pets.

 Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?

Anne Rice and Carol Goodman.

 Can you tell us about your challenges in getting your first book published?

I wrote my first book in 10 days and then submitted it soon afterwards. I was manic at the time and would NOT advise doing that. I got nothing but rejections so I stopped all together. But there was one editor that contacted me almost a year afterwards and gave me the confidence to revise. I got a contract with a publisher right away. In fact I had two offers at the time. So revising is an absolute must.

 If you could have any superpower what would you choose?

To heal people.

 What was your first job?

I was a cashier at a fast food place. Worked there for 6 weeks and quit. Never worked in fast food again.

 What types of books do you write and who is you main audience?

Mystery/Suspense and sometimes Paranormal genres.  My main audience is mostly Young Adults, but anyone young or old that can relate or wants to know more about mental illness, because every one of my books has mental illness elements in it.

 Out of all of your characters, which is your favorite? Why?

Bee’s dad. He’s comforting and always loving.

 What does your writing schedule look like?

Wide open most of the time. I write mostly during the morning hours and read the rest of the time.

 Do you use your OWN experiences?

Absolutely. Works every time.

 Was it easy to pick the title for your book?

For Deep in the Meadows, yes.

 What one profession would you choose if you were not an author?

An agent. I would love to do that, but I’m terrified of having a submission pile to go through. And I have no experience in it whatsoever.

 What are you currently working on?

A story about two boys—best friends. One is the stable one (the Main Character) and his best buddy who’s the wild one. But the wild best friend steals a gun from his father and whips it out in the woods at a party one night and all goes to hell after that.

FUN FACTS:

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Chocolate

Night owl, or early bird? Early bird

Red, or white wine? Neither, a Monster Energy Drink would be better

Roller Coasters or Water Rides? I used to love roller coasters but I’m too old for that now. My body can’t handle it anymore. Lol

Swimming in the ocean or a pool? OCEAN!!!

Walking or fitness club? Walking, definitely. It helps with ideas and brainstorming.

 Any last words?

Just live life, have fun and don’t worry so much!  That’s the best advice I can give.

 Thank you, Lisa, for taking some time to “chat” with us today and most of all for allowing Room With Books to be part of your tour!

“For your vanity, your cruelty, and your cold unfeeling heart, a curse I leave upon you . . .”

What happens if the beauty is also the beast?

The stunning Beatrice Cavanaugh is considered American royalty. She has everything except the ability to love. Cursed on her eighteenth birthday, she becomes more beastly than ever, having a newfound craving for raw meat, and an undeniable yearning for the night. Bitterness is her only companion. After accusing a maid of stealing, a disgustingly kind and exquisitely handsome guy named Adam shows up asking Beatrice to drop the charges against his mother.

Infuriated by his goodness, Beatrice vows to break him. Destroy him. Make him hurt the way she hurts. So she agrees. On one condition: Adam must take his mother’s place as a servant in the mansion.

Because Beatrice won’t stop until he’s more beastly than she is.
