my fifth book "Trisha's 31 Nights of Fright" comes out Sept 5, 2014
here is the official press description:
Looking for a good fright? Trisha Paytas was when she agreed to let horror film writer Jeff Rendell introduce her to the genre. Together they explored the best—and worst—horror movies have to offer, from classics of fright like Carrie to the inspired lunacy of the otherwise terrible Leprechaun in the Hood.
Whip up some popcorn, lower the lights, and join Paytas and Rendell as they share thirty-one of their favorite scream flicks with you for every day in October, the scariest of months. Let the haunting soundtrack of The Exorcist send shivers up your spine. Spend a night under siege at the Winchester Pub in the hilarious Shaun of the Dead, and giggle at the over-the-top, campy dialogue of Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (a chainsaw massacre in which no one—no one—gets killed with a chainsaw).
Each movie review includes an in-depth critique, explanations of the film's merits (or lack thereof), and cast lists (Matthew McConaughey starred in that?). Determine a movie's appropriateness for your mood by its Fright Factor, Gore Level, and Body Count rankings. By turns fun, campy, and informative, Trisha's 31 Nights of Fright is a wonderful introduction to new horror fans, and an informative resource for fans of the maniacs, ghosts, and monsters everywhere.
