Dead Spell - Belinda Frisch


In addition to her non-fiction credits (one textbook and several technical articles), Belinda Frisch’s fiction has appeared in Shroud Magazine, the Deadly Dolls compilation, and Tales of the Zombie War e-zine. She is an honorable mention winner in the Writer's Digest 76th Annual Genre Short Story Competition and a proud member of the Horror Writer's Association, SCBWI, and New England Horror Writers associations.

Product description:

17-year-old Harmony Wolcott is slowly succumbing to the darkness that haunts her, hurts her, and pushes her past the limits of sanity. The ghost, known only as Tom, seems bent on her destruction and the one person that knows his secret, her paranoid schizophrenic mother, is too busy tending her own demons to notice Harmony’s distress. 

Afraid to ask for help or admit the strange occurrences, Harmony gives herself over to self-destruction of every kind: drugs, promiscuity, and a co-dependent relationship with an older man who doesn’t have any idea what it is he’s saving her from, but tries anyway. Time is running out and Harmony either has to figure out Tom’s identity and agenda or, if she can’t confront her past, join him in death.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

It’s a fast-paced novel where the horror lies not only in the ghostly encounters, but in the everyday lives of characters you can’t help but sympathize with.

Q: Why did you go indie?

The long answer is on my blog: The short answer is because it’s what felt right for the story I had to tell and the way I wanted to tell it.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

Fellow indie Thomas Amo, author of The Forsaken (An Apple for Zoe Series) and Kealan Patrick Burke, author of Currency of Souls.
