CLAIRE C RILEY
The origins of Horror make a comeback in the hands of this talented author. Her books are impossible to put down, nail-bitingly good.
Claire hasn’t released the official blurb for ODIUM 2, but, if it picks up where ODIUM 1 left off, readers are in for an adrenaline-packed, emotional roller coaster of zombie-killing balanced with realistic character relationships. I devoured the first installment and I’m sure the second book will be no different!

Odium. The Dead Saga. Top #100 bestseller in dystopian fiction for 2013 and Indie book of the day winner 20th December 2013. Limerence, recommended Indie paranormal book in The Guardian in 2013.
Claire C Riley, is taking horror back to its roots, incorporating an old school style of horror and romance. Sexy and dark. (Think Bram Stokers Dracula,George Romero zombies and old school slasher gore.)
Her works include vampires, zombies, demons, ghosts and anything a little different. However she reads nearly every genre imaginable, believing that you should never stick to your comfort zones. She also likes to write characters which aren’t instantly likeable, isn’t that like real life?
Claire is a mother to three amazing little girls who hold her heart. She is an avid book collector and has a great zombie apocalypse plan in place thanks to a questionnaire she asked her readers to fill in for her from her blog.
Claire is currently working on the sequel to Limerence, the sequel to Odium and a crime horror, along with a ton of short stories to be released in anthologies very soon.
She actively encourages reader participation on her blog and author Facebook page, with questionnaires, quizzes, and fan art. So get in touch!

Two years of peace in a primitive setting can make anyone forget a past full of science, beasties, and blood. But when that past comes flooding back- with razor-sharp talons and speed- to pillage the present, who will survive?

Eli Constant is a genre-jumping detail junkie, obsessed with the nature of humanity. She believes that there’s beauty at the core of most everything, but that truly unredeemable characters create the best stories. Eli is the author of “Dead Trees,” “Mastic,” “DRAG.N” and is a contributor to the upcoming charity anthology “Let’s Scare Cancer to Death,” benefitting the V Foundation.
Eli lives in Virginia with her husband and two daughters. She is surrounded by battlefield country, farmland and lakes. Currently, she spends her days being a devoted mother and, of course, writing. Eli feels fortunate that her marriage is one of real love and she thinks her children are the coolest people in the world. She also feels so lucky to have an extended family that is ever present with encouragement and kind words.
When it comes to her writing, Eli has one ultimate goal: to become better with each word written. She is obsessed with the nature of humanity- the innocent, the corrupted and the confused. She’s always been a great lover of Science Fiction, but has also grown to truly appreciate other genres, especially Horror and Fantasy. Looking back on her debut novel “Dead Trees,” Eli wouldn’t change a thing. She feels like she learned from the experience and has grown exponentially as an author since its publication. Her most recent work, “Mastic,” is best described as an urban paranormal thriller with a softer side- touches of romance, hidden feelings and bridled lust.
This month, Eli will be featured in a charity anthology organized by the fabulous TW Brown. She is thrilled to note that 100% of sale proceeds will go to benefit the V Foundation, a leader in cancer research for the past twenty years. Keep posted on this upcoming publication by following Eli on twitter or facebook. Eli’s works in progress include the much anticipated sequel to Dead Trees, a 3-author anthology exploring the psychosis of serial killers, a 6-author anthology exploring humanity in the face of hopelessness and a zombie origins novel (this last work in progress comes as a huge surprise to Eli; she honestly thought she’d never write about zombies, but somehow, she fell down the zombie hole and couldn’t crawl out, or rather, didn’t want to crawl out).
